The Rebirth of Magic / Swapping Stories with Chris McDonald

August 11, 2021

In this episode Rue, Kenzie, and Mica swap stories with cousin Chris McDonald. Chris is a farmer, witch, artist, foodie, tarot practitioner, and astrologer. We focus our discussion on daily rituals of practical magic, that is, how to weave magic into every aspect of our lives to re-enchant this culture and revive its magical traditions. Examples are shared of how we are rebirthing magic in our homes, gardens, food, and bodies, and how we might raise and nurture magical children. We discuss methods of remedial magic and swap tales of orgasmic celestial influences. Lastly, we tackle the elephant in the room: why are queers so attracted to magic?
