Episode 189 – Of Correspondences and Collections

We dig into the herbs and crystals section of our book club, which leads to a bigger conversation about correspondences. We also talk about the ways we gather our magical tools and objects into our lives (in response to the amazing #regionalwitchcraftchallenge done by Via Hedera). We do card pulls for the month and get some messages about balance, detachment, indulgence, and fantasy, then hear a listener mail about a fascinating Greek practice. We top it all off by deciding how we’d summon each other!

We’re continuing in our Green Witchcraft II  book club, and we get into the issue of correspondences a good bit. Cory mentions both Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs and T.F. Thisleton-Dyer’s Folklore of Plants.

We talk a good bit about magical tools, objects, and collections, inspired by the #regionalwitchcraftchallenge started by Via Hedera over on Instagram.

Thanks to listener Jay for the email about the Ktesios jar! You can read more about them over at Theoi’s article on them.

Laine uses the Literary Witches Oracle for her reading this time, and Cory is using the Tarot Mucha (as well as playing cards). We both reference the book Seventy-eight Degrees of Wisdom, by Rachel Pollack.

You can now also buy Cory’s book, New World Witchery: A Trove of North American Folk Magic! (also available from Amazon)
