Get ready for Summer Solstice in this special holiday episode. We cover the history of Summer Solstice and how you can celebrate it in all your witchy glory. Hint: a feast is involved! Then, join Amanda and her special guest Melissa Madara, co-owner of Catland Books (Brooklyn's favorite occult shop). We take a deep dive into the magic of the kitchen as we discuss Melissa's book: The Witch's Feast. Plant lovers and folks who love to nerd out on magical history will especially love this episode wherein we discuss:

-- Where the name Litha comes from

-- Divination magic for the Solstice

-- Food spells and plant magic

-- How to transform your kitchen into a magical house of witchcraft

-- How to forage for herbs in urban environments

-- Learning to see invasive plants as a voice of the spirits of the land

-- How to use kitchen magic to remediate challenging aspects of your birth chart

-- And the most important thing for baby witches to do when they begin their practice.

We can't wait for you to tune in! Happy Solstice!
