~ Reflect with me, intent with me, listen with me ~
The Hunter's Moon: 4:24 p.m. EST

I write this issue today in the midst of healing up a case of tendonitis. Which, as a writer, has been tough. So, I am going to keep this intro brief and jump right in today to one of my favorite times of the year.

Right after I took this picture, she began laughing maniacally. I think it was a sign. 
‘Tis the perfect time for witchy podcasts. Here are a few I have been listening to this month that’ll help you celebrate this Halloween &/or Samhain time of year ⤵
✨ All 13 episodes of Witch from BBC Radio 4, hosted by the India Rakusen (creator of 28ish Days Later). 

📣 In keeping up with our goal of 5,000 subscribers by the end of 2023, we're up +13 at 1,188 readers! Please take a moment to share the newsletter with a friend. (Side note: I haven't had the time to dive into marketing for the newsletter in the way I want to, so we'll see if 5,000 happens before the end of the year. But, I'm okay with that! I will work towards that goal regardless of whether it's by the end of the year or past it.)

Love, a Supportive Broadie ❤️

What are we banishing?

This section is generally a mix of serious and fun(ny). This month in the wake of Hamas' attack on Israeli citizens, the Israel government's continued attacks on Palestinian citizens and the people of Gaza, and the propaganda running rampant online, I deeply hope for us to collectively banish: 
🔮 Dehumanizing other people and abandoning your own humanity. “Everyone's susceptible to using dehumanizing language and being misled by it.” Do not let yourself become susceptible. I touch on this here, too. 
🔮 Spreading misinformation and disinformation. We owe it to each other, ourselves, and the world to be discerning. 
🔮 Antisemitism and Islamophobia. There has been a rise in both. We must think about how our actions and words could be contributing to each.
