Luna 13

Which was created by one of our favorite humans on the planet, Jade Sol Luna. Not only is he a Musician, he is an Author, and an Asterian Astrologer. He will be joining us to talk about his music and his stay at the infamous Cecil Hotel and his experiences in the rooms of Elisa Lam and The Nightstalker, Richard Ramirez. Check out the hyper links for more information on Jade. A few of my favorite videos:

The Mistress of Mojo

That's right folks! It's that time again, when the incomparable Dorothy Morrison joins us for a night of giggles and magick. You should also know, she usually comes bearing amazing new limited products and deals! Check out her Social Media Sale today. You can also check out her store, Wicked Witch Studios, for more of her offerings...including some awesome coffee cups! In the mood for some reading and spells? Dorothy has books too, some thumpin good ones! Sit a spell in her Library, or check out her Official Website. Today is the New Moon and this Saturday marks the beginning of Summer with the Solstice. What are everyone's plans? I will do my usual ceremony at twilight.....y'all know, Dorian is not a fan of the heat and we have a lot of it down here in the South. Dorian is also not a fan of speaking in the third person either.....but there ya go. I know we were missing last week, but I want to thank you for your patience because I had an amazing weekend. My husband and I celebrated our 9th Anniversary and our oldest graduated from High School yesterday. I am, admittedly, a bundle of different emotions in the aftermath, but very proud. Raina is doing well after her latest round at the Dr., good mojo is appreciated though. So, back to work....doing some tweaks on the website, writing a bit and doing some readings. B*B

Pagan Pundit

We will be doing our monthly political catch up with Taliesin Govannon this week. Taliesin will do what he does best, explain what the hell is going on with the people we put in charge and what chance some of these jokers looking to be in charge actually have of getting there. He does a wonderful job of talking us off the ledge every month and filtering out the media hype. We missed you all last week. I had a wonderful time at ConCarolina's catching up with my old author friends, making new ones, reading cards and making a decision to rework my books and launch them again in the near future. We are back for this week, next week Raina and I have pre-scheduled engagements......but we will return with the one an only Mistress of Mojo!! Tune in tomorrow for a bit of tarot, political know how, a lude joke or two and my adventure at the zoo with a bunch of second graders!! Depending on how the trip goes, there may be copious amounts of wine being had ;) Show

Long time!

I have really fallen behind on this blog. The past few years have been full of ups and downs, gains and losses...but things seem to be leveling out for most of us. So let's start fresh! Last week I jumped the gun on Raina's idea to have an open question show. That was not enough time to reach everyone, so I will issue the invitation again for this week. Ask us anything!!! No question is off the table, we will answer and we will keep your name anonymous unless you specify otherwise. You can send us a message via, Google Plus, Facebook, our new Twitter page, a message here or you could always email us; desperatehousewitches@gmail.com We have been keeping busy, trying to stay under Mercury Retrogrades radar, what have you all been up to? Don't forget, in between shows I'm available for Tarot readings or spell consultations.... if you are in need of a spell kit and don't see what you're looking for in Cobaltraven's Magickal Notions, feel free to contact me. I will work with you to create a spell kit for your specific needs at a reasonable price. You can always contact either of us for advice on anything, advice is free ;) SO, send us those questions and tune in on Friday night at 7 pm EST! *Change of plans ladies and gents. I will be going to a convention this weekend and was going to do the show from there, but we will be rescheduling. We haven't received any questions yet, but you can still send them and we will reschedule that episode for a later date. Anyone who can make Raina blush gets a free reading from me! If you happen to be in the Charlotte NC area this weekend, stop by ConCarolinas and say hi to me, I may even throw in a hug. ~Dorian

I make this often and people love it!

1 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room
temperature. I use regular butter.
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons beaten egg (from 1 egg)
1/2 cup light molasses (I use dark)
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup (packed) brown sugar
1 1/2 cups hot water
5 tablespoons butter melted.
Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter 8x8x2-inch glass baking dish. Whisk flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and salt in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup sugar in large bowl until blended. Beat in egg. Stir molasses and 1/2 cup water in 1 cup measuring cup. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in 3 additions alternating with molasses mixture, beating to blend between additions.Transfer to prepared dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar to cover.

Happy Fall.

So, it has been a while since I've posted. Between this season being so busy and our amazing regular guests....I have fallen behind.

First, I would like to extend another Birthday wish to Raina Starr. Second, to the wonderful people who come on and talk with us. We learn so much from you and are grateful for you joining us. Last, but certainly not least, our audience. You keep us going, share us with others and keep coming back for more....you guys ROCK! Thank you.

Hope you are having a great Fall and a mild Mercury Retrograde. This is Jade Sol Luna's week, so maybe he can give us some insight as to how bad it is going to be this go round. Personally, I'm a little on edge and seem to be panicky. I have strapped on the Mercury Retrograde bracelet I got for Raina....you can get one too, HERE.

We wish you all a Bright and Blessed Holiday season. I'm going to be working on a little spooky story for you all as a Halloween treat so keep your eyes peeled.
