The podcast where we do a little ranting, raving, and wand waving! We’ll be examining witchcraft and spirituality from a modern, fat, feminist perspective; with a cauldron full of sass.

September 20, 2019

Episode 55 - Social Media Magic

Hello again witches, seekers, and friends, and welcome to The Fat Feminist Witch podcast, the show where we do a little ranting, raving, and wand-waving. I’m your host, Paige, and together we are going to explore magic and spirituality, social justice, the psychic realm, and most importantly – social media. I’m going to be talking a little about technology’s place in our practice, spells and rituals you can use to influence your social media presence, and how to find and share esoteric topics in a digital arena.

I'd like to thank all of you witches for your patience in waiting for this episode. I hope you love it!

Relationship with Social Media Tarot Spread from Emerald Lotus Divination

Episode 54 - Grimoire

ep54grimoire.png

Hello again witches, seekers, and friends, and welcome to The Fat Feminist Witch podcast, the show where we do a little ranting, raving, and wand-waving. I'm your host, Paige, and together we are going to explore magic and spirituality, social justice, the psychic realm, and most importantly – books!

Specifically, of course, witchy books! Not just the modern ones we love to read, or the ancient ones we love to try to interpret, but also the ones we write ourselves - our grimoires, journals, and books of shadows.

I talk about some of the histories of magical texts up until the 20th century when Gerald Gardner introduced the world to Wicca and the Wiccans to the Book of Shadows. I've got a great little ritual you can use to bless or consecrate your own book that's perfect for the full moon on Friday the 13th. 

Download the Spell in PDF Format!

Of course, it wouldn't be an episode about books without me talking about some of my faves, the ones I use most, and the ones I'm most looking forward to. 

Books mentioned:

Magical Housekeeping by Tess Whitehurst

Coventry Magic by Jacki Smith

Light Magic for Dark Times + The Magical Writing Grimoire by Lisa Marie Basile

The Enchanted Cat by Ellen Dugan

The Complete Crystal Handbook by Cassandra Eason

The Only Tarot Book You'll Ever Need by Skye Alexander

Madame Pamita's Magical Tarot - Madame Pamita

Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs - Scott Cunningham

Episode 50 - Interview with Fiona Horne!

Hello again witches, seekers, and friends and thanks for tuning in to episode 50 of The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast! Today I've got a brand new interview with Fiona Horne, who I chatted with before about her autobiography The Naked Witch. This time we touch on her NEW book The Art of Witch, and her recent tour through Australia performing spoken word from the new book and playing with her 90s electro-rock band DEF FX. Today’s episode is coming out on this very marvellous moon-day because today July 22nd, Fiona’s first-ever oracle deck is being released in the UK and North America! The Magick of You Oracle features art by Marcela Bolivar and was created to help you navigate your own path of self-discovery, especially when that takes you through periods of darkness. Each card also has an accompanying ritual so you can work magic with the aid of the cards. 

Get The Magick of You Oracle from Amazon.

Just like my previous chat with Fiona, this interview is inspirational, funny, and just so magical. Fiona is a captivating speaker and artist and it’s always a pleasure to have her on the show.

Want to find out more about Fiona? Check out her website fionahorne.com! You can find her 'Music' section mentioned in the episode here. If you want to hear DEF FX you can now find Light Speed Collision on Spotify!

Episode 48 - F@*k Witches, Get Money!

Hello again witches, seekers, and friends, and thanks for tuning in to The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast episode 48 – Fuck Witches, Get Money! – alternatively titled WITCH BETTER HAVE MY MONEY. It was hard to choose between the two. Today we’re talking about money – not necessarily how to attract money with spells, but about applying a monetary value to psychic and spiritual services.

Yes I definitely did talk about John Oliver and this issue on my blog before, you can read that here.

Episode 47 - Visualization + Imagination

Hello again witches, seekers, and friends, and welcome to The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast, the show where we do a little ranting, raving, and wand-waving. I’m your host, Paige, and together we are going to explore magic and spirituality, social justice, the psychic realm, and most importantly – our imagination.

In today’s episode I’m talking about that totally ambiguous, but vitally important word in magical practice – VISUALIZATION. Despite it being a core part of the spell casting,  magic, or manifestation process many of us still struggle to actually do it. Some people just can’t visualize, right? WRONG. Also, just for fun, I thought we’d look at some magic rocks that all come from or connect us to imaginary places that we can use in our very real magical practice.

The Book referenced a million times in this episode is Holistic Energy Magic by Tess Whitehurst, which I very highly recommend.

Episode 46 - R.I.P. Jimmy Hoppa

This episode is in memory of Jimmy Hoppa, my lovely rabbit friend who passed away last month. Today, may 9th 2019, would have been his 9th birthday. 9s symbolize completion and endings, but also moving on to bigger and better things. If he's still got lives to live, I hope they're beautiful. 

I had originally planned a whole episode about practical magic to do with rabbits or with rabbit energy, but I ended up realizing that's not really what I need. I need to just talk about Jimmy, and how much I loved him and our time together. 

So that's what this episode is like. It's not scripted, it's personal, I cry out loud a few times, and I didn't edit anything out or advertise anything. 

If you are interested in working magic with your rabbit, or with rabbit energy, I have a really cute episode of Seeker's Corner which actually features Jimmy himself! He's so cute and he bites me and it's hilarious! You can watch it on my facebook page or YouTube channel

Baby Jimmy!Baby jimmy!


Surly!

Hello again witches, seekers, and friends, and thanks for tuning in to Episode 43 of The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast!

Episode 42 - Star Goddess

 

Hello again witches, seekers, and friends, and thanks for tuning in to The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast episode 42 STAR GODDESS. 

Today I'm finishing up this unofficial astrology series from the last few episodes by talking about the asteroids in astrology. Instead of just throwing astro facts at you, I'm telling the stories of the god and goddesses these celestial bodies are named after! 

This guide on the roman-named asteroids allows you to calculate your own sign, and read a little bit about what that means. Always Astrology

I've also got a whole bunch of magic rocks for you, all of which either come from outer space or can help you connect with the cosmos. You can find info and pictures of all of these on my website - Magic Rocks from Outer Space! The song you heard right before was Lunar Dunes by Spinning Clocks

I first learned about the Star Goddess in Evolutionary Witchcraft by T. Thorn Coyle, who was trained in the feri tradition. If you want to explore the entire tradition more in-depth I suggest looking for books by Storm Faerywolf like Betwixt and Between, and The Forbidden Mysteries of Faery Witchcraft. This website feritradition.com that he created also fully immerses you in the incredible FERI AESTHETIC. Y'all it's so whimsical. 

I used the Mythic Tarot and it's accompanying book to help tell the stories of Chiron (the hierophant), Ceres (the empress), and Athena (justice). If you're a fan of greek or roman mythology it connects it with the tarot so well and still tells the stories in all their glory. with pictures!

I’m also going to be raving about the book Sextrology by Starsky + Cox, which is affectionately referred to as THE BIBLE by many astrology fans.

This episode was inspired in part by Annabel Gat's piece for Broadly about filtering Bumble matches by zodiac sign. 

The Hoodwitch has 3 feature pieces on Erotic Astrology signs including Venus, Mars, and Lilith.

We’ll talk about self-care and shadow work, how our emotions affect our magick, and I’m going to review one of my favourite new witch books – LIGHT MAGIC FOR DARK TIMES by Lisa Marie Basile.

Very Fat Feminist Halloween Special vol. 3 #HowRealWitchesDo

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, WITCHES!

Thanks for tuning in to this year’s Very Fat Feminist Halloween Special in which we discuss the stereotypes and archetypes associated with witches that always seem to pop up at Halloween.

In this episode I talk about the #HowRealWitchesDo: Witchcraft Without a Filter (Updated!) photo challenge and how amazing all of the entries were! It was amazing to see how different every entry from every witch was. How different everyone’s practice is. How many tools witches use, and how those witches who don’t use any tools make magick! I narrow in on 3 witch tools with very ancient roots, and how modern witches use them – cauldrons, brooms, and flying wands.

Then we talk about Satanism and the images of the Satanic Witch throughout history – and what satanic witchcraft looks today!

We take a look at Anna Biller’s modern cult classic horror film The Love Witch and one of the unfortunate ways it parallels local pagan and occult communities. This part of the episode discusses sexual assault and abuse allegations, and the way those things have surfaced in the magickal communities, unchecked, for a long time. If you want to learn more about this, visit this post by Sarah Anne Lawless, a Canadian witch who has recently broken her silence on the years of sexual assault and abuse she saw or experienced in her local communities.

Finally, I read a small excerpt from the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic book that influenced the new Netflix tv show.

Books mentioned:

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism by Michael Howard

The Devil’s Dozen: Thirteen Craft Rites of The Old One by Gemma Gary

The Satanic Witch by Anton LaVey

The Witch’s Broom by Deborah Blake

The Witch’s Cauldron by Laura Tempest Zakroff

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Episode 36 - Grounded in Reality #HowRealWitchesDo

Hello again witches, seekers, and friends, and thank for tuning in to episode 36 of The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast, the show where we do a little ranting, raving, and wand-waving. Today's episode, Grounded in Reality is all about the instagram witch, ways that science and magic can and do come together, and how to inject your highly witchy spiritual energy into this very logic-driven and tech-based reality. We also consider a very important question - is magick real?
 
If you want to participate in my Witchcraft Without a Filter challenge check out the details on my website, and then use the hashtag #HowRealWitchesDo to share with other witches.

Episode 35 - The Magick of Anger

Hello again witches, seekers, and friends and thanks for tuning in to episode 35 of The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast, the show where we do a little ranting, raving and wand waving.

Today's episode is all about everyone's not-so-favourite emotion - ANGER. Where it comes from, why we get angry, and why you shouldn't just banish your anger, but use it as a potent source of magickal power.

For example, I am angry at myself for continuously saying this is episode number 34 all the way through this thing, but c'est la vie!

Thanks to Cory at New World Witchery for having me on the show! You can hear me in Episode 132 – Bodies, Gender, and Witchcraft at http://newworldwitchery.com

To learn more about Shadow Work check out Light Magic for Dark Times by Lisa Marie Basile. For more info on how religion teaches us about anger read Spiritual Bypassing by Robert Augustus Masters.

Episode 34 - Witches, Midwives, and Doulas

Hello witches, seekers, and friends! Thanks for tuning in to episode 34 of The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast, the show where we do a little ranting, raving, and wand-waving!

Today we're talking about a profession and mission that's common in witchy and pagan circles - midwifery, doulas, and birth work. Is Midwifery witchcraft? Why are there so many witchy and pagan doulas? When did that happen?

I'll talk a bit about the history of the european witch trials and how many of those persecuted were accused of possessing the power to heal through natural remedies and ... satanic witchcraft? How the rise of Doctors as a profession cost many women healers, and the women who depended on them, their lives and own rights to understand their bodies.

I also share stories and experiences from other witchy parents, midwives, and doulas - including yours truly, a former doula.

I reference a BUNCH of great sources for you to continue your own research on this topic, including:

The Birth House by Ami McKay (and the #WitchyWednesday tag on twitter)

Witches Sluts Feminists by Kristen J. Solee

Witches, Midwives, and Nurses by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English

The Story of Jane by Laura Kaplan

Basic Witches by Jaya Saxena and Jess Zimmerman

The Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year by Susun Weed

Episode 33 - #FATPHOBIA!

Hello again witches, seekers and friends, and thanks for tning in to episode 33 of the fat feminist witch podcast, the show where I do a little ranting raving and wand waving. I am your host, Paige the fat feminist witch, broadcasting from not so sunny southerwestern ontario, and today we are talking about FATPHOBIA!

CONTENT WARNING FOR THIS EPISODE OF THE FAT FEMINIST WITCH: I will be discussing some personal experiences with fatphobia that I've encountered lately, and some of it is upsetting. If you've ever struggled with disordered eating or other issues with weight, food, medical malpractice associated with weight, suicidal ideation, fatphobia, and abuse, this could be a difficult episode for you. Be safe, even if that means not listening. I still love you!

This is a very personal episode, and doesn't feature any witchcraft, spells, or spiritual tools. I had originally planned to include a segment about magick for fat people, but have decided to make that a seperate episode.

I used a lot of sources for research for this episode, and I totally encourage you all to check them out!

Want to learn more about fat positivity as a movement and life philosophy? The websites and activists have all helped me, and offer great explainations about common fat positive terms and ideas.

 
http://www.themilitantbaker.com/p/resources.html - Jes Baker is phenomenal in general, but this list of sources is totally out of this world!
 
These are my fave fat positive twitter accounts:
https://twitter.com/KivaBay
 
This fantastic article served as inspiration for like, the whole second half of the episode:
 
What are fatphobia and fatmisia?
 
Have fat-specific health concerns? Or think you do?
http://fatfriendlydocs.com/ - fat-friendly doctors all over the world!
 
 
A study about the effectiveness of health At every Size vs. fatphobic abuse:
https://nutritionj.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1475-2891-10-9
 
If you are looking to change your body, this program focuses on your overall health and wellness, and not specifically on your weight!
 
I talked about a medication called CONTRAVE in this episode, to learn more from an unbiased source, this wiki article is a really great place to start - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bupropion/naltrexone
I read CONSTNT CRAVING by Doreen Virtue in it's entirety for this episode, and it was so interesting. It talks about the connection between food and weight and our moods and mental health.

Episode 32 - Chakras Plain & Simple

Hello again, witches seekers and friends, and thanks for tuning in to The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast - the show where I do a little ranting, raving, and wand waving.
 
Today I'm talking all about CHAKRAS. Where they come from, what they are, what they do, and why you should care haha. I'll also be reviewing chakras Plain & Simple by Sasha Fenton, and I've got a great new sketchy herb and magick rock for you. This is going to be a great episode for all of you who are new to spiritual practice, or maybe who haven't updated theirs in a while, and need help navigating the concept of chakras. I also talk a little about combining chakras with more "classical" but still modern? witchcraft.
 
As always, check out the blog at fatfeministwitch.com for my full Book Review of Shadows for Chakras Plain & Simple, and all of the info about Lilac & Fire and Ice Quartz, our sketchy herb and magic rock.
 
Thanks to Weiser Books for sending me this copy of Chakras plain & Simple to review!

Episode 30 - #WitchNBitch: Witch, Ya Basic!

 Hello again witches, seekers, and friends, and thanks for tuning in to episode 30 of the fat feminist witch podcast! I am your host Paige, The Fat Feminist Witch, and today I'll be talking about Basic Witches, Sluts, Feminists, and people who just straight up hate fun. 

This is a witch n bitch episode which means I've also taken a poll from witches online around the world about one of today's topics - do you have to practice magic to be a witch?

Today's episode was inspired by the book BASIC WITCHES by Jaya Saxena and Jess Zimmerman, which caused a bit of s stir for being a witch book about witchcraft by non witches about something many don't even consider witchcraft. YEAH.

I also mention Witches, Sluts Feminists by Kristen J Solee, as another modern witch book that has recently shone a light on the history of witches and witchcraft and what makes someone a witch, whether they want to be or not. 

 

Find out why I gave BASIC WITCHES 🔮🔮🔮🔮/5 here, learn more about and get the book, and even order merch direct from Quirk, the publisher at quirkbooks.com/basicwitches.

You can find Jaya Saxena at her website or on twitter.

You can find Jess Zimmerman through her writing at The Guardian, and Electric Lit , of which she is Editor-in-Chief, and of course on twitter.

Episode 29 - Interview with Fiona Horne, The Naked Witch!

Thanks for tuning in to the very first episode of The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast for 2018! I am so so excited to be back and even more excited to be talking with today's guest - Fiona Horne. You other 90s and early 2000s wiccans might remember Fiona from her books on witchcraft like WITCH: A MAGICAL JOURNEY (which just got a re-release!) or WITCHIN: A HANDBOOK FOR TEEN WITCHES (my personal fave) or even as the lead singer of electrorock group DEF FX. Whether or not you recognize her name you'll love hearing Fiona's amazing life story both in this interview and more so in The naked Witch, her new autobiography.

Resilience and transformation are going to be big themes for me with The Fat Feminist Witch this year,, and Fiona is the perfect person to kick start that as we talk rockstardom, dealing with loss, transformation, and why she is definitely a f%&#ing feminist! 💪👱‍♀️🖕

Find out why I gave The Naked Witch 🔮🔮🔮🔮/5 at http://fatfeministwitch.com/, and Goodreads.com and connect with Fiona at http://fionahorne.com/

Episode 28 - A Very Fat Feminist Halloween Special vol. 2

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, WITCHES!

Last Halloween I talked about the myths, legends, and pop culture that contributed to the over-all image of the halloween witch, this year we're talking about another aspect of halloween - communicating with the dead. This episode is all about talking to ghosts and spirits, and treading the veil between the worlds in the vein of Victorian spiritualism. 

I'm talking about the art and history of the halloween seance, a new sketchy herbs and magick rock to help you communicate with the dead, a new Book Review of Shadows featuring The Weiser Book of Occult Detectives, and I even read an excerpt of a spooky victorian tale of a Palmist and supernatural detective. 

The very cool old Victrola recording you hear during some of this podcast can be found and downloaded for free at freesound.org
