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 17: Nutmeg – Herbal Witchery
In today's episode we are exploring nutmeg, a seed with a history similar to that of cinnamon and cloves. Nutmeg was an important commodity during the Spice Trade of the 16th and 17th Centuries, so much so, that one of its bloodiest incidents occurred over this particular spice. We will talk about this sad history, as well as the culinary uses of nutmeg as an ingredient in cuisines from all over the world. I'll also explore the magickal associations of nutmeg, such as luck and prosperity , and its connection to Yule and the winter months. I also give you a recipe for homemade Creamy Holiday Eggnog. Join me in discovering the rich and disturbing history of nutmeg.Website: http://www.lavendermoonteas.comEtsy Store: https://www.etsy.com/shop/LavenderMoonTeasRecipe: Creamy Holiday Eggnog————————————————————————————————Intro & Outro Music:Midnight Tale by Kevin MacLeodLink: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/4710-midnight-taleLicense: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/
Learn Tarot with Harry Potter: Lilly & James Potter as The Lovers – Tea & Tarot with Lavender Moon
In this episode, we move on to card VI, The Lovers. First we explore the traditional meanings of this this card having to do with love, soul ties, and relationships. We'll look at the imagery on the Rider-Waite version and how it ties into the story of Adam and Eve, and how this give us many nuanced themes in the love department. Then, we'll look at the relationship of Lilly & James Potter; how they represent the Lovers card, and also how their relationship can give us a deeper insight into what it means to be 'soulmates' or in love. As always, I end with some thoughtful questions about James & Lilly's relationship through the lens of the Lovers, as well as questions you can ask yourself when the Lovers card comes up in a reading.
