I host two podcasts, one is Herbal Witchery, which focuses on one magickal herb each week. The other is Tea & Tarot with Lavender Moon, where I pull one card each morning and share the themes and messages it bring up.
Episode 15: Wormwood – Herbal Witchery
In today's episode we'll be looking at wormwood, an herb closely related to the mysterious mugwort. Wormwood has earned itself a place in the 'notorious' plant category due to its use as a main ingredient in the reportedly mind altering spirit Absinthe in the 19th century. We'll take a look at this legendary drink and wormwoods supposed cause of madness, as well as its figurative use in literature, and its medicinal properties. We'll finish up by looking at wormwoods association with ancestor magick and use in spells for protection, reversing spells, and spells where the energy of bitterness is needed. I end the episode by sharing a fairly easy recipe for homemade absinthe, if you are so inclined. Try my Samhain Blend Enchanted Herbal Tea!

Learn Tarot with Harry Potter: Cornelius Fudge as The Hierophant – Tea & Tarot with Lavender Moon
In this episode, we move on to card V, The Hierophant. First we explore the traditional meanings of this somewhat hard-to-relate-to card and its ties to conformity, spirituality, and authority. Then we dive into Cornelius Fudge and his Ministry of Magic, and the ways in which he perfectly embodies the 'negative' aspects of this card. As always, I end with some thoughtful questions about the Fudge and the Ministry through the lens of the Hierophant, as well as questions you can ask yourself when the the Hierophant comes up in a reading.
