YOUR SOLSTICE RITUAL GUIDE

Text for the candle lighting ritual (by Amanda Yates Garcia)

I am _____. [Describe who you are, i.e. artist, lover, friend, etc.]

Example: I am Amanda Yates Garcia, witch, writer, artist, and Oracle of Los Angeles.

This year I have lost ______ to the night. [Describe what you have lost, be it personal or political].

Example: This year I have lost a lot of time to internet vampires, and countless hours worrying over the fate of our world under kyriarchy.

And by the powers of the Goddess within me, from the darkness of this, the deepest night, I call forth the light of ______. [Describe what you want to call forth into the world and why]

Example: And by the powers of the Goddess within me, from the darkness of this, the deepest night, I call forth the light of generosity, to use my words and actions to empower people to create a more beautiful, loving and compassionate world.

Chant While Burning Your Solstice Herbs

The text for the chant is by Starhawk from her book The Spiral Dance. Please buy this book! Please note I do not include the full chant so as not to infringe on copyright. If you want the full chant buy Starhawk's book or visit her website.

A great way to do this chant is to go around your circle and name your losses, toss the herbs into the fire, and then everybody chants the text together and you keep going round until you feel satisfied.

[whatever you lost] is lost to the night

[whatever you lost] is lost to the night

To fall and rise again

To die and be reborn

What more must [you/I/we] lose to the night?

Spirit of nature, guardian of wood and earth, give my beloved friend (state pet?s name) the blessings of strength, health, and long life."

Then to your pet you say, ?May I always know how to aid you when you are in need. May I always see to your comforts as well as I see to my own. And may I be as good a friend and companion to you as you are to me. In accordance with your free will. I bless you on this sabbat? So mote it be!"

SM 19 : Wheel of Fortune - Learning To Trust Your Fate

In this episode we discuss the weird and wonderful world of the Wheel of Fortune, including as many wheel puns as possible -- wheely, wheely good ones!

But seriously folks, this card is special. Full of arcane symbols, great wisdom about luck, acceptance, surrender, fate, destiny, and recognizing that to everything there is a season.

Respect that the universe works according to its own laws of time and space. Show up in truth, authenticity and humility and you are golden.

NOTES FROM THE SHOW:
Sarah's glorious "Consider the energy you bring to a space" t-shirt with earth image is available now. [Click this link to get your very own. ](https://modernwomen.bigcartel.com/product/consider-your-energy-tee)
Let it be known that it was Emily Dickinson (and not the disgusting abuser Woody Allen) that first said, "The heart wants what it wants," in a letter Mary Bowles (to whom she frequently wrote intense and passionate missives).
The song "Turn! Turn! Turn!" was originally written by Pete Seeger, but our favorite version is the one we used in the show by the [inimitable Nina Simone. ](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZv-RNdmY0I)

SM 16 : The Hermit ? Sexy Loner You Wish You'd Gone to Bed With

In this episode Sarah and Amanda discuss Major Arcana 9, The Hermit card. This is the card for you if you want to Netflix and chill... with yourself, like, in a spiritual way.

The Hermit corresponds to the number 9, which represents the completion of a cycle. The Hermit appears in your life when you're ready to stop looking outside yourself for answers. You already have all the information you need, you already have the skills, now it's time to consolidate, to tie up loose ends, and to trust that you have the wisdom it takes to pursue your right path.

Despite the fact that the Hermit has a reputation for being somber, in this episode Sarah and Amanda find the joy in this card and can't wait to share all the things they love about it with you.


*********************************
NOTES FROM THE SHOW:
The Leonard Cohen song you hear in this episode is "Lady Midnight" (snowy road remix).
The pop culture references we wanted to include but didn't (and also those we did) are: John Muir Hildegaard Von Bingen Maroon colonies of people who escaped from enslavement The Crone: Baba Yaga, Hecate The Oracle in the Matrix (Neo goes to her, she is mature, she doesn?t sweat his youthful distemper) In Game Of Thrones - Thoros, the wayward priest of the lord of light, he doesn?t observe religiously, but his magic is effective: "We?re here for a reason. The Lord of Light is keeping Beric alive for a reason. He gave a failed drunk priest the power to bring him back for a reason. We are part of something larger than ourselves." LadyHawke, the Monk Imperius who helps the protagonist couple break the curse (he had retreated in shame for betraying them, but redeems himself by helping them at great risk to himself) Amanda's autoresponder Amazons (warrior women who retreated from the patriarchal world)

SM 15 : Tarot Grids ? A Special Technique to Learn the Cards

Most of the time when we pull tarot cards, we arrange them into spreads basically at random. But that doesn't really help us understand the story of the cards as it was intended by tarot's inventors. When we lay the Major Arcana out in grids, we can understand how the "Fool's Journey" evolves and also get a better understanding of how the cards relate to each other when they come up in a reading.

The wild witches of the west are back with Season 2 of Strange Magic!

If you're:

having to endure a situation you?re not sure you can endure trying (maybe struggling) to get in touch with your creativity if unconscious drives are encouraging you to do things you consciously know you shouldn?t do if you?re ready to expand beyond what you always thought you were capable of if you?re trying to find your right place in the world

... then this is the episode for you! The Strength card has brings magic to all these areas and so much more.

Vocab:

Major Arcana - The 22 archetypal cards (numbers 0 through XXI) that make a tarot deck a tarot deck rather than just a deck of playing cards.


Magic - changing material reality or consciousness according to one's will; often combines symbols, emotional charge and action to initiate transformation .


Suits: - The four sections of a tarot deck that correspond to the suits in a regular deck of playing cards. In the case of the tarot it's cups (hearts), pentacles (spades), diamonds (swords), wands (clubs).


Shaman - Shamans are leaders of their communities who used altered states of consciousness to enter extraordinary realms of being and bring back knowledge to help heal their communities. A controversial term, the word shaman was originally coined by Western anthropologists working with the indigineous people of Siberia meaning "someone who works in a trance state." However the term has expanded to include anyone who uses trance-based healing techniques, but most often refers to indigineous practitioners.


Heroine's Journey: The common trope of "the Hero's journey" tells the story of a wiley figure who chooses to go on an adventure, has a crisis, wins a victory, and then comes home changed or transformed bringing a gift to his people. In the heroine's journey, by contrast, the heroine under patriarchy is often abducted to the underworld against her will and has to navigate her way out again, finding her own power in the process, then helping others to do the same.


Archetypes - an overarching pattern of behavior or a ?way things happen?, specifically refers to religion, mythology, symbols, literature and art. See also Carl Jung.


Keys - the keys of the tarot are the tarot cards themselves but most often refer to the Major Arcana. They?re called keys because they open up portholes to new ways of thinking.


Correspondences - within the occult, objects, symbols, astrological signs, elements, metals, crystals and many other objects and signs relate to each other through a system known as correspondences. For instance, Major Arcana 3, the Empress, corresponds to the planet Venus.
