Wheel of the year- Litha & Yule.

Today’s ep is all about the Summer & Winter Solstices! Here in the southern hemisphere we are nearing the peak of summer energy at Litha - which is also known as mid summer, while our cousins in the North are nearing the peak of Winter and gearing up to celebrate Yule. It’s that time in the wheel when things shift again, and for us the days start to get shorter again, and for our witches in the north the light begins to return. Shannon shares mythology of Norse Goddess Sol (Info from mythology .net) Shannon and Laura discuss the main themes of Litha- It’s our longest day of the year, a time of celebrating the light and joy! It’s happening for us on Thursday 22nd at 8.48am AEDT. It’s the time to honour the sun’s energy at it’s peak, ask for healing, illumination, expansion and one last joyful summer celebration before we dip back into the cooler months ahead. Then they move on to Yule, Winter Solstice - or Mid Winter - is the longest night of the Year, a time to celebrate the returning of the light, the sun and warmth. Days can only get brighter from this point on! And a strong reminder that after death there is always rebirth. Shannon reads for our fave book, Encyclopaedia Of Spirits by Judoka Isles about Goddess Isis, complete with assigning homework of reading The Thunder, The Perfect Mind, found here http://gnosis.org/naghamm/thunder.html Divine Tool of the week- DIY bath salts and bath bombs for Goddess self care ritual. Bath Salt recipe 1/2 cup Himalayan rock salt (partially ground in mortar and pestle) 1 cup Epsom Salts Dried flowers eg, rose petals, lavender, calendula, jasmine etc. a couple pinches of dried Herbs such as rosemary and thyme are also nice! 3 drops of essential oil- Laura used Cedarwood, Neroli and Orange.  4-5 drops of Jojoba, rosehip or coconut oil.

The Hidden Messages in Water.

This episode was inspired by a recent ‘rice’ experiment Shannon conducted after reading the book, ‘The Hidden Messages in Water’ by Maseru Emoto, and the personal shift in mindset she experienced after witnessing the results. What ensues is a deep, insightful conversation with our dear friend, psychic medium and co-host of sister podcast, Turns Out She’s Psychic,  Tracey Dimech about the language we use, intention, vibration and the power they hold. A little about the book: “In this New York Times bestseller, internationally renowned Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto shows how the influence of our thoughts, words and feelings on molecules of water can positively impact the earth and our personal health. This book has the potential to profoundly transform your world view. Using high-speed photography, Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colourful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colours. The implications of this research create a new awareness of how we can positively impact the earth and our personal health.” Tune in to find out more - and perhaps shift your own perspective!

The Night School, with Maia Toll.

We have a very special guest who is joining us today all the way from Asheville, North Carolina. She is the author of the best-selling and award-winning Wild Wisdom Series. The seeds for this series were planted years earlier when she apprenticed with a traditional healer in Ireland, where she spent extensive time studying the growing cycles of plants, the alchemy of medicine making, and the psychology of working with humans and illness. These experiences reawakened an interest in natural philosophy and mysticism which had been a large part of her academic studies at The University of Michigan and New York University. She has taught Botanical Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, West Chester University, and Pennsylvania Hospital. She regularly teaches at conferences and festivals where she encourages people to use the patterns and metaphors from the natural world to help them understand and grow within their own lives. This episode, Shannon and Laura talk with Maia about her latest endeavour ‘The Night School’ - exploring the edges of the universe and the depths of the self, all through the lens of philosophy, divination, and astrology… A beautiful quote from the book: “magic is everywhere. To see it and the effects it has on your life, change the way you perceive the world. To harness it, change the way you interact with the energies around you. To know it, change the way you think. To live it, remember the lessons of the Night as you go about your day.” Maia Toll website Instagram- Maia Toll Support Turns Out Network Here Visit Shannon’s, and Asha Moon’s websites below Asha Moon Shannon Cotterill  Have a witchy question to ask?

Changeling mythology, and the murder of Bridget Cleary.

In the spirit of finding something squirmy to talk about for Halloween, Shannon brings us Irish folklore about Changelings- the creepy type of fairy you wouldn’t want anywhere near your children, for fear they might be swapped out, and left in place of your beloved offspring would now remain this creature whom you would need to care for in fear that if you did not, your real child would suffer. The tragic and disturbing case of Bridget Cleary is also covered, though she was not a child, in 1895, her husband murdered her after accusing her of being a Changeling.

Matrescence- birthing a mother with Nikki Mccahon.

Shannon met our next guest while doing Level 2 Sister Circle Facilitator training with Kate Reed, and was really intrigued by her work as a women’s life cycle guide and host of the Dear Mama podcast. When a baby is born, so too is a mother. Both are vulnerable, unsteady and trying to make sense of this new world. Becoming a mother unravels us, and reweaves us. It leaves no woman as it found her. It cracks us open, takes us to our edges. It’s both beautiful and brutal, often at the same time. This transformation has a name - matrescence. And we have the beautiful Nikki McMahon here today to talk with us about this.

The Forfar Witches

Today we delve into some witch history, starting off with the Forfar Witches…  This story first came onto my radar as one of my dear cousins lives in Angus, Scotland, which is not far from Forfar. She thought I would be interested & sent me some pictures & a little back story on it! The Forfar Witch Trial is also known as Scotland’s Salem, where locals were tortured, tried, convicted and executed for "the abominable crime of witchcraft” between 1661 and 1663, there where 42 suspects imprisoned, and 22 of which were sentenced to death for being witches.  We plan on releasing some witch history episodes this season in between the sabbats & awesome interviews we have lined up. So if there is a particular witch history lesson you would like us to cover - please get in touch!  We also had a lovely listener, Rachel, get in touch with her own Sleep Paralysis story… and a frightening one at that!

Sister Circles with Kate Reed.

This week we have a very special guest who is one of Shannon's mentors and teachers - the beautiful Kate Reed. Kate first held circle in her early 20's, and over the next couple of decades continued holding circles amongst the contours of her professional life as a counsellor, youth worker, health coach, and business owner. In 2015 she was called to devote herself full time to Circle work, and in 2016 started teaching this knowledge to other women. She is the woman and heart behind The Sister Circles, and over time has facilitated hundreds of Circles, Rituals and Workshops, and created a Level 1 and Level 2 Facilitator Training Program so women can take this work back into their communities. Her dream is that every woman has the opportunity to sit in a safe and empowering space as they navigate the joys and challenges of life. We loved speaking with Kate about all things circle work, ritual, elements and how it is such powerful medicine for us all... This episode we also touch on the devastating floods of the Northern Rivers region of NSW, which sadly Kate, her home & community were deeply affected by.

Sacred Symbols.

In today's episode Join Shannon & Laura as they dive into the world of Sacred Symbols Since the beginning of time people from all cultures across the globe have created symbols to use in ritual & divination, and to serve as good luck charms & protection sigils. We look into the meaning, folklore and uses of the Heptagram, Evil Eye, Sheela Na Gig, the Hamsa and Hexafoils! Did you know: a Heptagram has 7 points and is also known as a Fairy Star, the Evil Eye is often used to protect babies (there's also a few other tricks that Southern Italians have up their sleeves, such as the cornicello, cimaruta and the 'sign of the horns'), Sheela Na Gig doesn't mind a bit of anasyrma, the Hamsa is also known as The Hand of Fatima - and Hexafoils may just be pretty patterns made by carpentry apprentices practicing back in the day?

For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere tomorrow marks the longest day of the year, a turning point where the days will start to become shorter as we head back into the darker part of the Wheel. At this time we honour the sun at it's peak, ask for healing, illumination and one last joyful summer festival before we dip back into the cooler months ahead. Join us as we explore the themes, elements, crystals, foods and rituals you can celebrate with. We also delve into the mythology of the Oak King & Holly King, and their eternal battle at Summer and Winter solstices! Our divine tool of the week : Elderflower. Have a witchy question to ask?

Special Note about Part One- Shannon and Tracey sit down for a honest, raw and emotive chat about how Fiona has navigated the very recent trauma of loosing part of her finger, and injuring others during a recent dog attack. We almost didn't include this, as it was not actually part of the interview or purpose of the podcast. But, as you will see, the way Fiona has navigated this experience is truly a testament of someone who's wisdom, insight and ability to embrace and learn from all that life has to offer can inspire others to do the same.
