Special Episode – Folk Magician’s Notebook – January 2022

Summary:
We launch the first in a monthly series of posts that will take a peek at folk magical influences for the coming lunation. We look at moon phases and signs, divination, a proverb and folktale of the month, and a practical craft or charm to try out! In January 2022 we talk about pest control and roots (both literal and metaphorical) in our lunar cycle, look at the Ace of Diamonds and the Ace of Swords (as well as the “Twelve Days” folk fortune-telling practice for weather in the coming year), hear a Slavic tale called “The Twelve Months,” and discuss eating your luck!
Please check out our Patreon page! You can help support the show for as little as a dollar a month, and get some awesome rewards at the same time. Even if you can’t give, spread the word and let others know, and maybe we can make New World Witchery even better than it is now.

Special Episode – Scairy Tales – Vasilisa the Beautiful

Summary:
We finish out our Scairy Tales for this year’s All Hallows’ Read by taking a trip (by way of flying mortar and pestle) to Russia, where we hear a tale of a girl, a witch, and a very helpful (if slightly terrifying) doll.

Our theme this year is “Scairy Tales,” or the fairy tales that are a bit too dark to tell in the nursery (unless you’re trying to scare your supper like our rather wicked storyteller might). Some of the sources for these tales include:
