Episode 84 - Magic Numbers for Witches Who Hate Numbers

Hey friends! Thank you for joining me on this chilly fall Friday the 13th!

Episode 80 - Baneful Bitchcraft: they protec/they attac

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...
