  • Welcome to our "Non-Wiccan" Community!


    WARNING!  ADULT CONTENT
     

    This forum is for those educated in one or more craft traditions, and is not an appropriate forum for those totally new to witchcraft. Go forth to seriously read and learn before applying for membership.

    This site is intended for a more mature audience of 18 years or older (21 in some states).
    If you are underage or offended by strong language, tough debates and hot banter, please leave now.

     

    We both collided with each other online in 2006 and since that day remained the very best of friends.  We decided to do something for the Traditional Witches out there so please note this is a site purely for Traditionals. If you are looking for "New Age" Wiccan/Gardnerian 'Traditional' Witchcraft then we are sorry but you are not welcome to join.
     
    If you are already a Traditional Witch (practising the Old Craft before Wicca) or you are on a different Traditional path, which embraces working with a variety of energies, and wish to mingle with like minded folk, then please stay a while and browse around and feel free to join.

    Our forum is absolutely packed with some very interesting debates, discussions and opinions amongst our ever growing members.
     
    There are not many sites purely dedicated to Traditional Witchcraft as Wiccan sites have really taken over the internet. Although Wicca and Traditional Witchcraft are a similar path, they are actually entirely different in the way of working and beliefs, hence this is NOT a Wiccan site.  Unfortunately, on many Wiccan sites a Traditional's point of view tends to create an odd atmosphere and we end up feeling like outcasts.

    All Traditionalists who work open mindedly and can embrace the dark as well as the light are welcome here! This site is intended to be a portal for information and interactivity with other Traditional Witches and other Traditional Crafts.  You can have your say and post here as much as you like without fearing your beliefs will cause any biased comebacks by others on an alternative path.  

    Most of the main articles and information will be based on our own thoughts and beliefs and what works for us but you are more than welcome to submit your own articles too.  Please note that some of the Festival and Ritual information gathered in the main menu are not followed by all Traditional Witches but they have been provided as an information or reference resource.
     
    In our experience we have found that many Traditional Witches' beliefs and ways of working can vary considerably, so we ask that you do respect ours and others personal opinions and views, as you too are more than welcome to also share your own Traditional beliefs and ways of doing things

    This site is a COMMUNITY site and filled with non-wiccans, worldwide.  If you are looking for purely intellectual sparse nitty-gritty conversation, then you won't enjoy it here. We  have a very laid back and friendly forum, which is exactly what we aimed for and will continue to promote. 

    Once again, welcome, and we look forward to getting to know you.

    Sandy and Brian

      Couldn't think of a suitable title. . . .again. .. Have been on a bit of a magic-fest in my reading. Have found it helluva difficult process because of course you can't judge a book blahblahblah  Some that i've found excellent though were 'Witch Bottle' by Tom Fletcher, 'Starve Acre' by Andrew Michael Hurley, 'Pine' by Frances Toon, n 'The Devil's Detective' by Simon Kurt Unsworth. Pine is particularly good, but all of them are, very chilling n if you like good old fashionned balls'n'all witchcraft which i'm presuming most here do, you may enjoy them  Now i'm gonna troll through the other book posts here n see if i can find more. . .

      I'm going to have to get this! I joined a group on farcebook also, history n lore of poison path (not the exact name can't remember the wording). Also some other groups (not sure of the politics of naming them here, so i won't). It's something i've always been fascinated w but never knew you could actually find books on it -  mine's been an incredibly long n slow path of experimenting. . . .

      Haven't seen it but know of her, remember my parents talking about her, caused quite a scandal down this end of the planet. My adopted mother compared me to her when i was a teenager. Her standard insult was to spit out 'Toverhex!' at me. . . .   Must check that one out, sounds good!

      "Magia" (magic) is a son by Gustavo Cerati, an Argentinian (passed away) musician. The lyrics remind me of what Doreen Valiente says about magic of the mind in her book Natural Magic. She says: In the lyrics, Cerati says Reminds Valiente's words: "the adept knows that everything in the world may be at his service, to use and enjoy for the good of himself and others -yet it is only loaned  to him for a time, by the powers of nature and destiny". The state of mind in the lyrics suggests that he has being persuaded not to (dissuaded from) follow his will, but he insists on it. This kind of attitude in regards to his will is the attitude for magic like if there was something that is calling or there is something that will be found. The result is equivalent of the desire. Here are the lyrics (translated from Spanish): At the same time some other subjects can be read as magical topics, such as the action of the wind (although is a metaphor), transformation of things o materials into magical ones, a force that confirms the will, intuition, a journey as the Fool of the Tarot, among others, What do you see/read? It can be listened here.

      I've just seen the movie and is very nice done in regards of the dancers and the figures as symbols of her arstistic realm. She had a conscious pagan perspective since childhood and was aware of her difference out of what was spected (and sometimes it stil happens) for a woman to be. I think her craft was her art and way of life. In that sense she indeed was truly authentic. Her spell (her art) made the statu quo tremble. Isn't art a magic instrument and the way to present what she experienced in her flight? Surrealist artists (to whom she felt connected in some way) where close to the Occult in many ways. Austin Osman Spare was an artist and occultist and other surrealists as Breton (poet) and Dali (who made a Tarot himself) work on the idea of the important relationship between magic (as understood in occult philosophy) and art. The documenteary suggests that the term witch Norton used was represented by herself using stereotypes as a protest and mock of how the media and Australian society misunderstood it all. Maybe she did not meant to be one as we now can understand it. But she acted like a medium of the otherworld as her art is the result of it. For herself she was the instrument of that personal realisation as both an artist and occultist in a trascendental way. I guess.
