Making Magic an Everyday Thing!
Contemporary magic and witchcraft have been influenced by, and have had a lot of influence on Feminism. The idea of women's power often being associated positively or negatively with the religions of Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. The new Barbie movie is a fantastic examination of the perils of idealism for women in the world. Barbie walks through the magical Barbieland in all her power, and when she enters the Real World she learns how difficult power is to wield in a place where people have agency and free will, and where patriarchy has reigned for 1000's of years. Barbie is a great ambassador and Greta Gerwig's film is birlliant!
The sun's power is waning as we move from Lammas towards Samhain. The Earth is always generous towards us, and in this time of year it is important to take note of how the harvest cycle benefits us. Most of us never have to consider how the cycles of the earth affect us. More than ever it feels that Mother Nature is trying to remind us that she is still the force that makes our lives possible. We can treat that as a blessing, or as a scary power we cannot contain. Either way the magic of the world is a miracle that benefits all of us when we honor it and treat it with respect.
If you've watched any of WitchMom's TikTok Videos or seen my "Lives" then you know that Simon the dragon is always watching over my work. He has starred in a video too! Artist Christopher Crumb loved Simon so much he decided to create Simon for the WitchMom/WitchDaily and #WitchTok communities! I was so honored and thrilled I put Simon on everything from Tees to Sweatshirts to water bottles. I hope you'll consider supporting WD by buying some Simon Merch! Here are some samples to help you decide. You can get your SIMON SAYS items by clicking here!

At the end, you will get a video recording of the session.
