An !

Hi! I'm Tamsin, and this is the account for my author pseudonym Misha Magdalene. Under this name, I wrote a blog for a few years, which became a book titled Outside the Charmed Circle: Exploring Gender & Sexuality in Magical Practice. It was published in January 2020 by Llewellyn Worldwide, and you can find it anywhere fine books about queerness, gender, sexuality, and witchcraft are sold.

Speaking of which: I'm a queer, nonbinary trans girl, as well as multiple flavors of witch and magical practitioner. My personal accounts are TamsinSaysHi at eightpoint.app, queer.party, or mastodon.lol.

It's nice to meet you. 😸 🖤 :pentagram:

I'm into the thick of @matauryn's Psychic Witch, working through the "three souls."

I was excited -- something I know! -- but it's actually a bit different than what I know from Finnish tradition...

🇫🇮 Three Souls:

Löylysielu is your life force; breath, blood, warmth. It is always with you.

Itsesielu is your personality & true self. It is what makes you who you are, your consciousness. This soul returns to its kin after death in Tuonela. Said to be brought to you by a soul bird/sielulintu. It can travel.

Lastly, your Luontosielu is a guardian spirit, which guides & protects you. Sometimes it appears as a person, sometimes not. It can travel without you.

So well deserved! I love her so much and it breaks my heart that she has MS. Almost finished with Season 3 of Dead to Me, though difficult because of the subject matter and also seeing her act for the last time before she retires. I remember as soon as I finished Season 2 I said she deserves an Emmy for that role. If you haven’t watched it, definitely check it out on Netflix. It’s so good.

Sorry forgot to put an image description for accessibility. The image is a fist in the trans flag colors in front of a background of the trans flag.

Trans rights are human rights. Everyday, not just on Transgender Day of Remembrance. Sending love and support to all my trans friends. You are loved, sacred, and your life matters. We fight for the dead. We fight harder for those alive. 🏳️‍⚧️

@Crazypedia No spoons to offer much more than titles/authors but Aidan Wachter’s Six Ways is fantastic, as is Mat Auryn’s Psychic Witch. (@matauryn, love your book!)

I'm excited! My publishers have just sent their redraft of my next book - "Queering Occultures" - for me to have a look at. Looks like they are sticking close to my original typesetting even though they don't use Indesign, but do everything in Word.

In the ancient tale of ‘Daphnis and Chloe,’ Pan reunites the lovers after Chloe is kidnapped by pirates, instilling panic in the ship’s crew until she is safely returned. They celebrate with a feast in Pan’s honour. #mythology #art

As a blind individual, I have to say that #Caturday on #Mastodon is far far more enjoyable then at #Twitter, where the vast majority of cat photos are not described.

It is also been fascinating for me to hear descriptions written by those who sent the image, immediately followed by Apple image recognition’s attempts to describe the same image. Only rarely does that add anything to the ALT, & often directly contradicts it.

There is no auto magical solution to image description. It is something best done by a human, for only that human can explain the “why” of the image: the reason that image was chosen to speak so eloquently without words for those who can see it. ALT allows you to provide those words.
