Episode 84 - Zodiac Signs and Witchcraft


Zodiac signs are useful in figuring out how your personality works best, and what kinds of magic to use. Zodiac signs are most often used in witchcraft to harness the energy of that time (either while the sun or moon is in that sign) or in sympathetic magic, using the correspondences of your own or another person’s star sign to more closely tie the spell with the intended target.
