Witchcraft for the Restless

Witchcraft for the Restless


Witchcraft and nature and spells, oh my! Get cozy and let’s chat about magic, social issues, and all things witchy with me, Kai. Your resident queer folk herbalist.

In this short episode, I talk through coming up the card placements for this month’s Patreon tarot spread. It’s early spring, which means it’s Spring ephemeral time! Spring ephemerals bring out a LOT of foragers, new and experienced alike. And with the huge spike in popularity this year, it got me thinking about responsible foraging and how we might apply the same lessons to our own lives.
