Feast of Torches

Feast of Torches

By Azaizall
“Much like us, magic has grown and thrived. From knowledge passed from our grandmothers, to circles of found families and seeking something more.
Here we will catch glimpses of the past, seeing how they made their way to the present, and where they can go in the future. Though we thrive on the moonlight, it is the fire of wisdom that we seek to ignite.

Welcome to the Feast of Torches.”

Christian Influence in the Craft with Tony Sosa
On today's episode we are doing what all witches have dreamed of and that is Feasting upon the Christians...I'm just kidding...or am I? Mwahahaha...anyway The Almighty Tony Sosa joins us today as we discuss Christianity and it's influences on the craft both positive and negative. You will also get to witness some of our hilarious banter and possible mental breakdown over Janet Farrar's "The Witches of Wexford, Ireland" (Video will be linked below). We also discuss, The relationship of the pentagram in Christianity(along with a random tangent by Sir Sosa), The role of Women within Christianity and Witchcraft, The Concept of Sin, and not wanting to work magic for yourself out of guilt and much more. P.S. Don't mess with the devil's lettuce right before(and during) a podcast, for you will lose track of time and also thoughts.

Sticking with the theme of the season we also touch a bit upon The Assembly of the Sacred Wheel, a magical Tradition of which Ivo is one of the founders.

We Conjure Thee Spirits of Water
Welcome to Another episode of The Feast of Torches. Tonight we continue our journey with the elements, this time calling upon the spirits of Water. Traditionally the elemental for water is an Undine, but that's not necessarily true for everyone. I would love to hear from all my listener's what your experience was like and if it didn't work the first time, never hurts to try again. Trigger Warning For those whom have a deep fear of drowning or being submerged in water, i'm letting you know beforehand that this meditation features that so continue or not with that understanding!
