    Book Review – Seasons of Moon and Flame: The Wild Dreamer’s Epic Journey of Becoming by Danielle Dulsky

    Book Review Seasons of Moon and Flame The Wild Dreamer’s Epic Journey of Becoming by Danielle Dulsky 376 Pages     ….There is much to be said for self-discipline, for keeping our promises to ourselves, for harboring a deep knowing that any new way of being in the world is going to come with moments of intermittent discomfort that must be welcomed as small rituals of growth and learning. 1. Seasons of Moon and Flame: The Wild Dreamer’s Epic Journey of Becoming by Danielle Dulsky is the second of this author’s books that I’ve had the pleasure to read and review. Her style and message is one of empowerment and…

    ‘Bad Words, Good Smells’ An Interview with Desiree Horton of Co-op of Creation

    ‘Bad Words, Good Smells’ An Interview with Desiree Horton of Co-op of Creation     Desiree Horton is currently on call 24/7, providing terminal decontamination for hospitals and other places, some of which have tested positive for COVID-19. She works as needed, so her schedule “can get a bit crazy.” A few years ago, she started making candles in her kitchen before moving her workspace to the garage. Before the pandemic, friends and family would come and create with her. “I was doing my candle shop full-time, but I stepped back into this to help train people and to handle these places since it’s hard to find people willing to…

    Television Show Review & Interview With Jane Velez Mitchell – A New Day/A New Chef

    Television Show Review – A New Day A New Chef     I was glad to be asked to review a new vegan cooking show; personally, I had been having some difficulty sticking to my vegan diet and watching this show helped. As we are all aware, plant-based foods are fast overtaking animal-based foods in sales. Even those who are avowed meat eaters will occasionally have a plant-based meal. This is a boon to our bodies, our environment and, of course, the animals. Because of this fast growing trend in taste and lifestyle, more and more guidance is needed for those who wish to try veganism. Cookbooks abound, but it…

    Learning Lenormand Interviews – Diana Clark, Creator of the Gaelic Lenormand

    This interview was done a few months ago, before the COVID-19 virus crisis hit all of us, so it’s a tad dated (I know that was just a short while ago, but doesn’t it seem like years already?). But I hope all of you will enjoy it. I have to say that I am looking forward to her horse-themed Lenormand! I have always loved horses, as anyone who knows me will attest!     Polly MacDavid (PM): In the beginning of the Companion Guide of the Gaelic Lenormand, you talk about your family history & how this informs your divinatory style.  Since not all of our readers have read the…

    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches

    Making Soap     Merry meet. We all need a bit more magic these days, and soap is one way to add magic to your life without it being noticed. I never liked messing with lye, so I found two easy options. Briefly, one is to grate bars of soap, melt, add ingredients and pour into molds. The second way is to buy the soap base from craft stores, melt, add ingredients, pour into molds. It’s that easy.   (image: soap with oatmeal)   Directions for the latter are on the package, so I’ll step through the first lazy method. [1] If you choose to use botanicals, sprinkle some in…

    Last month I shared some documents with you to consider adding to your BOS. This month I want to share some brainstorming prompts to use as you fill more of your BOS pages. On first glance this month’s article may appear less robust than most but I assure you that if you work with each of the questions in a thoughtful and authentic way, you will have more than enough to keep you occupied. So, let’s get started. Some of these will become checklists for crafting your own rituals. Others are in the moment wanderings and others are for the intention of having a strong foundation to grow upon. Be…

    Book Review – You Already Know: How to Access Your Intuition and Find Your Divine Life Path by Helen Jacobs

    Book Review You Already Know How to Access Your Intuition and Find Your Divine Life Path by Helen Jacobs 344 Pages     I started this book just as the quarantine in the US began, so doing the exercise of creating silence and sacred space was comfortable. Easier than it would have been for me before the quarantine. I haven’t made this many notes for a book in a long time. Since it was an e-book, I had to have my spiral notebook close by to make my notes. I always stop reading and write what I want to remember right away; otherwise, I forget too quickly things that catch…
