About Hey Magical Girl!

*•̩̩͙⊱••••✩••••̩̩͙⊰•**
WHO AM I?
Hey there! My name is Lindsay, and I’m an illustrator, nerdy Black girl, tarot-reader, and a practicing witch for the last couple of years. While I offer tarot and astrology readings through my own small business DarkLake Tarot, what I’m equally passionate about is exploring Pop Culture Magic- essentially utilizing figures and iconography from mainstream media into one’s witchcraft practice through rituals, spell-crafting, meditation, etc.

Pop Culture Magic interests me because I enjoyed exploring how spirituality and fandoms naturally intertwined. Where other witches might dedicate themselves to ancient pantheons or worldly spirits, pop culture witches like myself instead plug into the collective consciousness to connect to- and draw power from- the characters and franchises that have inspired and empowered us the most. For some that might mean getting into demonology through shows like Supernatural, or potion-making and Draconic Incantation through the world of Skyrim.

~ Oooor if you’re like me, it was identifying the aspects of the Divine Feminine through Magical Girl anime like Sailor Moon- in fact I’ve started creating a Sailor Moon Oracle Deck, ‘The Serenitist Oraculum’, as an expression of its franchise-inspired spirituality, Serenitism. It’s also why one of my taglines is ‘Magical Girl High Priestess’!

It’s this interest in seeing media as ‘living myth’, and its potential in being re-contextualized as a source of ever-evolving magical power, that the seeds of “Hey Magical Girl” were planted.

TELL ME MORE!
“Hey Magical Girl!” is the launch-point of what I hope to be a multimedia forum related to all things Pop Culture Magic, encompassing things such as meditation tracks and inspired artwork, all the way to loftier goals such as a monthly podcast or long-form video essay.  The name calls back to the jumping-off point of my personal magical practice revolving around the Magical Girl archetype, but the series will cover instances of magic, witchcraft and occult studies across all media. As a practitioner I believe that Pop Culture Magic is just as powerful as more traditionally-considered esoteric practices and can be utilized in creative ways. And as someone who enjoys studying media, I think there is valuable discourse to be had in how creators use and create original magical systems for their worlds, and what role it plays in answering the deeper spiritual/philosophical needs of its audiences.

I want “Hey Magical Girl!”, essentially, to be the kind of geeky, spiritual resource that I wish I had available to me growing up.

WHY A PATREON?

As you can imagine, an undertaking of this size would require a massive amount of time and dedication into research and content creation- not to mention investing in equipment!  Currently I am balancing 'Hey Magical Girl!' alongside a day job and my other creative endeavours, and I want to put out at least one polished content post a month. That is something I’d like to change, however, and this is where this Patreon – and you! – come into play.

By becoming a Patron and supporting “Hey Magical Girl!”, you’ll be directly helping my ability to create content that is beneficial and accessible to anyone interested in learning more about Pop Culture Magic, or even just wanting a different, intersectional slant in analyzing your favorite piece of media. All money raised will go into tangible improvements to my work equipment and space, as well as the intangible such as allowing me to spend less of my days in the muggle world, and more time doing what I love and what I feel called to do- this!

In return, you’ll get a personal thank-you and access to everything- yes, EVERYTHING!- that I create, earlier than everyone else.  That includes things such as:

  • Pop culture-inspired meditation tracks
  • Spell-crafting and ritual magic workshops
  • Long-form video essays
  • Art live-streams as I develop my series of Anime Oracle decks, such as ‘The Serenitist Oraculum’
  • Behind-the-scenes looks at everything as I go,
  • Being part of exclusive community chats and video nights where you get to ask me anything you’d like regarding magic and fandom, help plot the next topic of interest, and maybe join me in a watching a new series!
  • And literally anything else that I think you’d want in on!
The tiers are organized in a *Pay What You Can* system- I believe enough in this endeavor that I don’t believe in locking more in-depth content away behind a paywall. It doesn’t matter if you are able to donate just $1 a month or $20- or even if your financial situation changes!- if you want to be a part of making “Hey Magical Girl!” happen, then there will always be a way for you be a part of this.  And the more that you donate, the more economic and financial freedom I'll have to put out more content more often!

After many months of talking and planning and revising, I’m excited to finally lay down the ground work for “Hey Magical Girl!” and see what kind of magical future we can create together! Thank you so much for reading this far, and I look forward to your support!

XOXO,
Lindsay

Equipment Upgrade pt 1- Microphone!

"
Hey Magical Girl!" right now runs on the bare essentials to get audio recordings done- aka the Voice Recorder app on my phone, and my wireless headphones *lol*  I want to upgrade to a decent microphone at some point to ensure the quality of my voice recordings stays consistent- after all, a meditation track shouldn't have car alarms blaring in the distance!

As extra incentive, I'll up the number of proper content posts per month to 2- basically a new piece of Pop-Culture Magic twice a month~
