Episode 73: Witchcraft Bandwagon – Why, What, and How to Prevent It

Episode 73: Witchcraft Bandwagon – Why, What, and How to Prevent It

Jumping on the witchcraft bandwagon is not what you may think. Today, I wanted to discuss how the witchcraft bandwagon might be affecting you, how you can recognize it, and what you can do to push past it.

I don’t mean that everyone who is now coming to the craft or to paganism is jumping on the witchcraft bandwagon. What I mean by this term is that as witches, sometimes we do certain things just because we see other witches doing it. This can lead to many issues in your witchcraft practice. So, are you guilty of this? Baby witches, take note!

Episode 71: Midsummer Celebrations || Historical and Modern Traditions

Episode 71: Midsummer Celebrations || Historical and Modern Traditions

Celebrating the Summer Solstice, or Midsummer, is a common theme among many pagan faiths and traditions. Though it may have many names, Midsummer is often seen as the midpoint between the dark and the light half of the year. At Midsummer, we encounter the longest day of the year and, after, we start our descent into the darker half of the year. Midsummer is celebrated on different days in the northern and southern hemispheres because it is an astronomical event.   

Episode 70: Using Non-Witchy Resources

Episode 70: Using Non-Witchy Resources

Inspired by Blood, Sweat, and Steel on YouTube, this week we discuss the importance of using non-witchy resources in your research and daily practices to help you be a better witch and pagan.

Blood, Sweat, and Steel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU6TTTvQ79qlxxGJ9PB79-g

RelaxMelodies: https://www.relaxmelodies.com/
MyMoonPhases: https://www.jrustonapps.com/apps/my-moon-phase
Scribd: https://www.scribd.com/

Before Blood, Sweat, and Steel talked about this subject, I actually hadn’t given it much thought. When we think of pagan resources or witchcraft resources, we normally think about content specific to those two topics. Now, though, I realize that there are several non-pagan resources that I use on a regular basis. It is important to understand that all of your resources don’t have to be witchy books, witchy apps, witchy websites, and witchy content. Learning how to use the resources at our disposal – pagan or not – can help you be a better and more well-rounded witch.

Episode 68: Witchcraft Correspondences || Where do they come from?

Episode 68: Witchcraft Correspondences || Where do they come from?

Correspondences within witchcraft can be personal or common. Where do they come from? Who decides the correspondences for herbs, candles, and colors within witchcraft?  

* My Color Correspondence Printable: http://www.roundthecauldron.com/color-correspondences-free-printable/
* Scott Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magickal Herbs(+): https://amzn.to/3bPS39J
* Doctrine of Signatures by J.M.S. Pearce written for European Neurology: https://www.karger.com/Article/Abstract/131714
* Doctrine of Signatures Wikipedia Page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctrine_of_signatures
* Psychology Today – Color Psychology: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/habits-not-hacks/201408/color-psychology-how-colors-influence-the-mind
* Signatura rerum, or The Signature of All Things (Full Text): https://quod.lib.umich.edu/e/eebo/A28534.0001.001?view=toc
* Color Correspondences – Emotional or Traditional? https://www.roundthecauldron.com/color-correspondences-tradition-or-emotion/
* How to Make a Poppet: https://youtu.be/0chHAGJyqsg  

One thing I wrestled with at the beginning of my studies of witchcraft and magick was just who decided the correspondences? Who decided that clear quartz is a good crystal for just about everything? Who decided that lavender corresponds with calming? Today, I wanted to talk about witchcraft correspondences and where they come from. I discuss the animist perspective, the psychological perspective, and the medicinal perspective. This by no means is a comprehensive dive into correspondences, but I hope it gives you a chance to think about your own witchcraft correspondences and how you use them in your craft.

Episode 67: Defensive Magick

Episode 67: Defensive Magick

Defensive magick is the spellcraft equivalent of self-defense. Learning different defensive magick techniques can make you a more well-rounded witch.    

Enter my giveaway!
www.roundthecauldron.com/giveaway

Just because you learn defensive magick doesn’t mean you should always anticipate an attack. I like to use defensive magick techniques to protect from unwanted energies in and around my home, unwanted energetic influences when I’m out in public, and a way to protect my home and family from outside influences. Defensive magick doesn’t have to protect against just energetic or magickal influence, either. It can be used to protect against physical harm or damage as well.

Episode 66: Personal Deity Experiences || Working with Brighid

Episode 66: Personal Deity Experiences || Working with Brighid

I was inspired by two people on YouTube (links below) and their discussion about their deities and their experiences. They mentioned something that really inspired me – and that’s the fact that many pagans and witches don’t discuss their personal experiences with their Gods, Goddesses, and other beings. This could be from fear, hesitation, or just because they don’t want to. 

I believe that sharing our personal experiences with our spiritual path – including the gods we work with – can be a learning experience for both ourselves and others. It is important for me to share my experiences because I’m all about the education and spread of knowledge. 

Today, I want to share my thoughts on this as well as my experience working with and worshiping the Irish Goddess Brighid. 

Don’t forget about my giveaway!!

Episode 65: Religion at Work || EEOC Dos and Don’ts

We all want to be ourselves at work and that often includes being free to express our religion in whatever manner it is safe to do so. Let’s go over some EEOC Dos and Don’ts in terms of laws, regulations, and protections that are provided to you in the United States. The EEOC covers harassment, discrimination, and what you can and cannot request on religious grounds when it comes to your employment.  Let’s talk about religion at work.

Episode 64: What is Dream Interpretation? || Science, Psychology, AND Spirituality

Episode 64: What is Dream Interpretation? || Science, Psychology, AND Spirituality

Dreams have puzzled humankind for centuries – probably since the birth of the human species. It has been said that dreams are a gateway to the otherworld, a way to understand our innermost self, or even a way to divine the future. In any case, dreams can hold many keys to understanding yourself and working closely with your deities and ancestors.
