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?

* Color Correspondences – Emotional or Traditional? https://www.roundthecauldron.com/color-correspondences-tradition-or-emotion/

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!!

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

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.

Episode 62: Different Types of Altars – Four Common in My Practice

Episode 62: Different Types of Altars – Four Common in My Practice

Hey there! Today, I wanted to talk about four different types of altars that I have seen and/or use in my own personal practice.   

o Worship Altar
o Ancestor Altar
o Working Altar
o Practical Altar  

These different altar types are only a select few that exist – and I’m sure I’ve left out many different others. Do you have any other altars you use? Do you use one of these altars but in a different fashion? Let me know!

Episode 61: Back to Our Roots || Pagan Chat with my Sister-in-Law

Episode 61: Back to Our Roots || Pagan Chat with my Sister-in-Law

This week I sat down and had a chat with my sister-in-law. Well, sat as close as we could since there are several states in between us! Anyway, we decided to have a chat about finding our roots and getting back to basics. She loves to bake and sew and I love to crochet and create – so we combined our knowledge and thoughts on why we think it is important to learn these basic skills.

Episode 59: The Danger of False Claims and Misinformation

Episode 59: The Danger of False Claims and Misinformation

With everything that’s been happening in the world, I thought it might be a good idea to revisit this topic. I’ve spoken in the past about using your critical thinking skills and how that is a necessary part of researching witchcraft, magick, and even religion. Today, it goes a bit deeper with the pandemic we currently face. However, this can still be tied back into witchcraft.
