Immunity Booster Sigil Promoting Good Health
This image was created by Laura Tempest Zakroff to help promote good health. Obviously it is not a replacement for practicing precautions such as social isolation, but if you want to add a little magick to your precautions, try drawing this, placing it on your altar or at your doorways to promote good health in your house. Read more here.
That Witch Life
That Witch Life is a bi-monthly podcast by Pacific Northwest witches Courtney Weber, Hilary Whitmore and Kanani Soleil, three friends who have been practicing witchcraft since their teens. Join them as they "share our mistakes and mishaps, our successes and our best (or worst…) advice for 21st Century Witches." You will laugh and you will learn. Sometimes you may even shed a tear. And then there is the Screaming Goat....
As always, the hosts share their adventures and misadventures. OK - they are more like city witches than Greyhaven witches, but they probably get fewer visits by bears! This is a technically sound effort and worth subscribing to. Use your favorite search engine to find them and subscribe! They are available on every major podcast platform.

Paisley is a real neat lady and just bursting with information and the desire to share it!
In our recent sigil workshop with Laura Tempest Zarkoff, members of some of the local groups and a fair number of solitaries worked with Laura to create a sigil representing our community. The object of the sigil is to help create a sense of community among the groups and solitaries of Eastern Washington and North Idaho. Since that time, we have presented the sigil to many of the groups that were not present, and everyone seems to love it! Below is the sigil and the meanings of the components. Hope you like it too!
Children of the Crossroads
Children of the Crossroads is a local Wiccan coven dedicated to Hecate and Pan. They have started a neat project on YouTube called Witches and Wine. You can follow their discussions on YouTube or link through their Facebook page.
Volcanoes and Dreams
The subject of volcanoes came up in a recent Squirrelly Dream Dabbling session. A volcanic eruption figured prominently in a dream one of the participants had.
So what does a volcano in a dream mean? It is usually associated with a conflict scenario. Dreams about earth-based dangers like volcanoes (or tsunamis, earthquakes, etc.) generally point to inner turmoil or emotional conflict in the dreamer's world. It is a warning from your subconscious that there is something going on in your waking life that needs your attention: a conflict that must be resolved. The volcano represents strong emotions held in check but bubbling just beneath the surface, ready to erupt. The usual emotion being held in check is anger: usually it is the anger the dreamer is bottling up, but it could be fear of someone else’s anger.

Gargoyles: a subject that feeds the intellect and fires the imagination. The word Gargoyle conjures images of fantastic creatures, cast in stone, perched atop European cathedrals and spouting water or a Saturday morning cartoon show or even a Hollywood TV show or horror movie.
Gothic-era Gargoyles generally resemble a demon, devil, dragon, half-human=half-animal creatures, or a caricature of real people or classes of people. Their original purpose was as a device used to shed rainwater from buildings primarily cathedrals and castles in Europe. Another purpose was to frighten off evil and protect those that it guards, such as a church’s parishioners. Unlike grotesques, gargoyles are usually part of the drainage system of a building. learn more
