Aliza Kelly sits down with Witch Doctor Alex (Scorpio Sun, Leo Moon, Sagittarius Rising), astrology enthusiast, Hoodoo practitioner, occultist, and spiritualist. In this episode, Alex explains Hoodoo, distinguishing it from other spiritual practices by describing its necessity as a survival tool for enslaved Black Africans and their descendants, from slavery to Jim Crow to today. Aliza and Alex discuss how to mindfully practice witchcraft and mysticism, examining how colonialism and appropriation have shaped our perception of BIPOC spiritual practices. It’s imperative that we, as a collective, relearn our history and tune into the stories of people who are different from us.
