Tying Up Loose Ends & Being Fully Present -Episode Three – Country Dwellers Podcast

This week’s Tarot card reading is for the Moon Card. Start singing Moon Shadow right now! ūüėČ

Hello Country Dwellers & Podcast Listeners:

This episode lets you know all about the Moon Card of the Tarot and how you can make a list of things you can do now to work on personal patience during this Libra Gibbous Moon. In this episode we introduce Witchy Self-Care and some words of wisdom from fellow pagans.

We want to first off apologized to the listeners for the background noise in this episode of Runa’s Aquarium. It shouldn’t be a problem in the future; however, we do tend to travel from place to place as we record these podcasts, so one never knows. Just think of it like a bubbling brook at our little internet witchy cottage.

Remember Mercury goes retrograde on July 24th, so take some time now to back up your back ups as far as your data and documents are concerned and start practicing now for clear communication.

Low-Carb Seafood Chowder

Runa’s Chiron Summation was referenced from and Wikipedia.

Summer Recipes coming soon; however, get you some of this good Low-Carb Seafood Chowder, while you can. Here’s some more information on ricing cauliflower.¬†

And because we just can’t take ourselves too seriously, here’s a little Meme for MareLin’s fear of sharks:

If you’re really interested in doing crabbing pier-side within the Puget Sound, here’s some information.

Remember to take a minute for yourself this week — schedule in self-care if you need to, because it’s so necessary to a healthy, joyful life.

Again, please leave a comment, question, or content request here. We’ll happily respond to you here or on our podcast.

Blessed Be,

Runa & MareLin

*Date note:  Income Tax Day for the United States is traditionally on April 15 each year. This past year it was on the 17th because the 15th fell on a weekend. MareLin may have confused a few folks, so we just wanted to make that clear.

Just some of the ley lines in our backyard.

Greetings one and all!
And we mean all.

First we want to thank all those that helped make this release possible, especially to The Viking and Babe. Without your support, none of this journey would be possible.

The Tarot Card of the Week is the Queen of Pentacles. Listen to the Podcast to hear MareLin’s reading.

This episode we talk about who we are, why we’re doing this podcast, where we are, what we plan to accomplish with this podcast, when you can find the podcast and deeper information than what we discuss on-air, and how all of this came to be.

Our podcast may be found on Google Play, iTunes, and Soundcloud, just look for “Country Dwellers.” ¬†If there’s a particular podcast portal you’d like us to also be available to, please let us know in the comments.

Here are the links as promised referred to in our first podcast:


A special treat for our inaugural podcast: Raspberry-Infused Mimosa

*Recipe of the Week:  Raspberry-Infused Mimosa РIngredients:  One shot (jigger) of Orange Juice, One shot of Pineapple Juice, Two shots of Prosecco or Champagne, Three fresh raspberries per glass. Mix liquids together in one glass, add fresh raspberries. Enjoy.

*Gardening Zones and Gardening to do in June

*Natural Pesticides for Rose Bushes: Two parts water, one part dish soap (not detergent), one part lemon juice. Feel free to add a little garlic and cooking oil, too, if you like. Spray on the aphid infested part of the plant. The force of the water from your sprayer is part of the control method, so don’t be afraid to really soak the little buggers.

*Uncle Ian’s
