Before the interview, Anna Joy discusses the astrology of the present moment, including the Full Moon Lunar eclipse that occurred on January 21, 2019 and what it means for the rest of the year starting with Aquarius season.



They discuss:

-The concept of a “cusp” in  astrology and whether or not it is real

-Working with polarities or opposite signs- e.g. Cancer-Capricorn

-What Aquarius season is all about



Then, we dive into the interview with Pictureplane, who discusses the creative process as a magical act, his supernatural experiences while living in New Mexico and Colorado, theories about ancient civilizations, the oppressive force of Christianity and capitalism, and how he maintains his spiritual health by constantly creating art and connecting with community.

Podcast Episode 25: Revelations, A Scorpio Review and Discussion of Gender-Inclusive Witchcraft

On this New Moon in Scorpio, we have the opportunity to fully inspect and emote the revelations we’ve experienced about our personal occultism, taboo experiences and magic.



Anna Joy begins this episode by highlighting the recent Queer Witch Community (join in at https://www.facebook.com/groups/thequeerwitch/) discussion about “Divine Feminity vs Divine Masculinity” that was triggered by comments made in Episode 24: Love is LOVE with Tonya Gonzalez (trigger warning in the aforementioned episode and this one for possible discussions of gender essentialism and binary notions of gender).



Anna Joy discusses the general context of the Divine Feminine/Divine Masculine theory within mainstream New Age, Wiccan and Pagan cultures, what it is founded upon theoretically and why it is so mainstream. They also discuss the violent use of the Divine Feminine/Divine Masculine theory within  Second-Wave Feminism & Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminism and why it is important to consider the experience of gender non-conforming, genderqueer, trans and nonbinary witches when sharing your viewpoints on magick.



Next, Anna Joy imparts their own, nonbinary understanding of the idea of Divine Dualism as a replacement for what shall now be termed “The Divine Gender Binary” through the lens of astrology, including:



-the relationship between the Sun and the Earth

-Venus and Mars within the natal chart

-Lunar activity



Building off of the final point, Anna Joy launches into a discussion of how to use lunar cycles in your magickal practice, and how to specifically work with all New Moons as well as today’s New Moon in Scorpio.



Finally, we have a brief discussion of Jupiter in Scorpio’s influence over us for the past 12 months and how today’s New Moon in Scorpio is the season finale of all this activity.

Mercury Retrograde in Aries

Mercury Retrograde in Aries

Whatever you find yourself ruminating on over the next few weeks (and the past few weeks) likely has something to do with the way you have been reflexively relating to masculinity. Now you have the chance to let go of these oaths you made to patriarchy, oaths that you took at one time to be save and stay alive, but which are now preventing you from parenting this new expression of divine masculinity in your life. Let go of them; you will come to no harm by releasing that which is passed already.
