Please check out Benebell’s website (www.benebellwen.com) which has loads of free downloads, video lessons, tarot deck reviews, and articles available, as well as some spectacular paid content and lessons. I also highly recommend her book, The Tao of Craft, her tarot deck The Spirit Keeper’s Tarot, and her Chinese Bone Oracle deck.
One of the essays that first brought me to Benebell was her article, “Pagan Practices and Chinese Folk Religions,” which I read a bit of  in this episode.
I read a few passages from the Tao Teh Ching, by Lao Tzu (Trans. by John C. H. Wu) and the I Ching, Trans. by Kerson and Rosemary Huang.

Summary:

We discuss all sorts of topics as we bring on author, dancer, artist, and all around righteous witch Laura Tempest Zakroff. We hear her takes on the many forms of cauldrons (you have more in your house than you know), sigils, and contemporary methods for traditional witchcraft. We also look at a strange and rather retro object in our Everyday Magic segment.

Fly Ashtray, sent in by listener Renee

Big thanks to listener Renee for suggesting the insect ash tray we discuss in the Everyday Magic section (see the pic above that she sent in). When discussing it, Cory mentions the books The Little Book of Magical Creatures (edited by Elizabeth Pepper and Barbara Stacy) and The Witching Way of the Hollow Hill (by Robin Artisson).

If you are one of our Patreon supporters, THANK YOU! We know that the Patreon kerfuffle this month was annoying and stressful, so hopefully now everything is behind us on that. You can hear more about it in this episode, too.

Update – Aidan Wachter’s Talismanic Jewelry

December 4, 2015

Talismanic Jewelry by Aidan Wachter (Photo from http://www.aidanwachter.com)

If you haven’t seen Aidan Wachter Talismanic Jeweler‘s magnificent Pagan- and magical-themed creations in silver (http://www.aidanwachter.com/), you should absolutely look at what he’s got to offer. The jewelry is hand-made in his workshop, and he’s constantly working on new designs from a variety of magical sources, including angelic work, grimoires, folk magic, and runestaves. He also does work to empower and enchant his creations, which is right up our alley.

He’s even offered a special sale (his first ever!!!) to our supporters and listeners. Simply use the code “Witchery” (without the quotation marks) when you check out at his site and get 10% off of your order. Do be aware that since this is work of a highly personalized nature he is currently turning orders around to ship in about 8 weeks.

A big Thank You to Aidan for making this available to our listeners!
