A special thank to our episode sponsors! See below for listener specials! Witch, actor, and Tarot practitioner Rachel True talks with us about her AMAZING new “True Heart Intuitive Tarot” deck and book! Rachel clues us into learning the card via “the actor’s way,” as part of the journey to trusting our intuition. We discuss ‘high vibe,’ ‘low vibe,’ the important role of ego, losing and picking up our Magick, and the need to invoke compassion. Rachel also shares a few stories of filming “The Craft,” and the story behind her signature butterfly necklace. We also explore Magick for the Sagittarius New Moon. A listener, who is newly out of the broom closet, wants to connect with community. How can they meet people while also maintaining anonymity?

A special thanks to Sacred Mists Academy and Shoppe for Sponsoring this episode! Please see below for listener specials!What a week/year/four years! Never have we needed grounding and centering more than we do now. But does it mean to ‘ground and center’? Why is it important in Magick? Joi Bonman, Witch and self-care queen, joins us to talk about the necessity of grounding and centering, as well as its connection to self-care. Our apologies to Scorpios…we’re totally mean to you in this episode! Plus, Courtney reads Tarot for Hilary and Kanani using Rachel True’s True Heart Intuitive Tarot. A listener in the military wonders how can they maintain a consistent Witchcraft practice with a transient lifestyle, a conservative family, and no place to practice privately. To hear a grounding and centering practice led by Joi, join us on Patreon!

What is music without Magick…or Magick without music? Emmy-nominated musician and Witch Jenna Greene brings us *NEW* music from her forthcoming album and talks with us about how everyone has a gift to bring to heal this world. We also discuss channeling power into our Magick through music and working with the Shadow. Courtney talks about what to do when your dog eats your Magickal supplies and Kanani reviews “Ever After” (with Soleil!). A listener is in a nasty custody battle over a small child and a psychic reader says it’s due to a curse on the family. What should the listener do (Spoiler feelings: We have ***FEELINGS*** about this issue)! “Faerie Queen,” “Mermaid Song (for Yemaya),” and “In The Twilight” performed and used with courtesy by Jenna Greene.
