Strange Magic Podcast

Episode 34: Spooky Scary Halloween

Episode Summary

In this episode we talk about the origins of Halloween, the holiday's pagan correspondences, and what it means to go "beyond the veil". We ponder questions for the ages, such as, "Why are ghosts scary?" and, "Is it cool to be a ghost?" We also talk about some of our favorite witch ancestors and give you some ideas for what you might do to celebrate Samhain, the witches' Halloween on your own. Tune in! (And don't forget to sign up for our very special workshop "The Shadow Knows: Finding Power in the Hard Cards" -- free to our $21 coven members or $48 for anyone who wants to purchase).
