  • Hello again my witchy friends, and thank you so much for joining me for the first episode of The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast of 2021!

    Today's episode is about potions! Tea, coffee, baths, perfumes, and cocktails!

    Since Valentine's Day is around the corner I share recipes for 3 love potions from WitchCraft Cocktails by Julia Halina Hadas!

    I also used Blackthorn's Botanical Brews by Amy Blackthorn and The Mixology of Astrology by Aliza Kelly to help me research this episode.

  • Hey friends! Thank you for joining me on this chilly fall Friday the 13th! Today I’m talking about numerology and working with numbers even if you have a math-related learning disability like Dyscalculia, which I have! Even with my issues, Numerology is both shockingly simple, and accurate. I’m also talking about some other uses for numbers in your magical practice outside of the art of numerology.

  • Hey friends and thank you so much for tuning in to the show! Today’s episode is pumpkin spiced and full of practical magic. I’ll be talking about the magical properties of pumpkins and the spice blend we use to flavour them – ie how magical IS your pumpkin spice latte, really? I’m also talking a bit about Practical Magic! This 90s rom-com is so popular with witches of my generation and the continuation of the series of books on which the movie is based has only dragged us all further and further into the world of the Owens witches. The newest installment – Magic Lessons – which tells the story of the OG Owens witch Maria has just come out. If it’s even half as good as Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic it should definitely be on your to-read list.

  • Today’s topic is magical protection – using spells and rituals to protect your body, home, emotions, psychic self, and friends. This is the second episode in my new series of episodes about baneful bitchcraft – curses, hexes, and taboo magic for revenge and destruction. Protection spells aren’t inherently baneful, of course, but many are used in self-defence. It’s also pretty prudent to cast protection spells on yourself before casting curses or as part of a larger ritual.

    I've also got a review for Miss Aida's new book - Hoodoo Cleansing and Protection Magic!

  • Hello friends and thank you so much for tuning in today for episode 78 of the show Baneful Bitchcraft, the beginning of a series fo episodes where I talk about the formerly taboo topic of hexes, curses, and magical acts to cause pain or misfortune in the lives of others. Today we’re going to talk a little bit about this type of magic, where it comes from, why it’s used, and finally, how to create a curse or hex for yourself.

  • Good evening stargazers and thank you so much for joining me today as we talk about what I call cosmic conjure or star magic. This is a branch of magic that draws energy from celestial sources, follows cosmic or astrological seasons and directives, and features spirits and deities of an extra-terrestrial nature. In this episode I'll teach you how to find a star of power and draw down stellar energy, how to work with the fixed stars of antiquity, and their associated terrestrial material magica, and sharing some some star magic spells and rituals I've created over the years.

  • Hey witches and thank you so much for tuning in to my first episode in a series I am calling FFW PADS! All about home magic. So hey fat feminist witches, welcome to my pad! Haha. (I've been watching old episodes of CRIBS...) We are all staying home a little more than usual and I recently moved to a new place, so the magic of home and hearth is at the forefront of my mind. Today we’re talking about how to use magic to make the energy of your bedroom more conducive to your intentions or needs, setting up bedroom altars, colour magic, crystals, and casting spells in your most intimate space.

    “The most important ceremonies aren’t the ones full of pomp and flash. They are the little everyday things we do with the people we love, and these rituals and rites of passage are what fuel and protect us best.” ― Sara Bourgeois, Festively Hexed

  • Hello everyone and thank you for tuning in to episode 68 clear knowing – all about the powers of psychic intuition. This method of experiencing psychic phenomena or receiving spiritual messages involves a sudden and unshakable KNOWING. A claircognizant person will suddenly know the answer to a problem, they’ll just know they have to turn right here even though the directions say go straight, they just KNOW when someone is lying and they know it like they know their own name. It’s not a guess, it’s a clear fact that you cannot disbelieve because everything in you is saying THIS IS IT. Despite the fact that this is probably one of the most common psychic abilities, it’s one we rarely talk about and that can even be pushed aside or considered minor!

    the crystals discussed in today's episode can all be found in The Complete Crystal Handbook by Cassandra Eason

  • Hey witches and thank you so much for joining me today for episode 67 of the podcast all about the most potent form of magic – music.

    The title of today's episode is inspired by the immortal Prince, and the muses of greek mythology.
