  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Familiar enough, but still learning.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Welll . . . .I was raised Protestant, became catholic in college, joined an evangelical christian traveling theater company(while being a catholic--that was interesting), explored various forms of Witchcraft, and here I am. Though looking back at it all, I've always been a witch, just didn't know way back when that there was a name for what I was and felt.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Yes. In what way? It is what I am and do. Just by "being" I work with Traditional Witchcraft.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    To me it means the basics without a lot of bells and whistles, if you know what I mean. Spellwork of all types, herbs, exploring, reading, divination, the basics.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    This is a hard question for me; it isn't black and white, cut and dry. I feel that I have been a witch or perhaps had inclinations towards that all my life, even back in the 70's when most people where I lived thought that all witches were devil worshipers and EEeeviiilllLLL.(small town Pennsylvania) But it wasn't until about --now you're making me think--- eight or so years ago that I finally understood what I was, put two and two together. Light bulb finally came on over my head, and I felt like I had come home. And what a relief! So I would say that that is when I really focused on researching and learning.
  • What brought you to our site?
    I had read about an online site and went to check it out. I thought it would be more traditional, but it was utterly Wiccan and i was very disappointed. So I literally googled "Witchcraft, not Wicca." And lo and behold there was this site!
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    Just a sharing of ideas, of different approaches to witchcraft, of practical solutions to everyday things, learning from others and them learning from me. Give and take. Bad puns. ;)
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Nope, not anymore.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    The desire to learn and then learn some more.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    My mind---I feel I am distracted too easily. Working on it though. Also self doubt.
  1. Do the bump!!! bumpy bumpy bumpiddy bumpiddy ;)
  2. Hiya Aurelian! Yeah, I *knew* I had done this already somewhere here! Yup you did it! Thought I'd bump it, enjoy everyone. ;)
  3. Scott, I've seen you around the forum here and there, and I've wanted to tell you how much I love your tagline "irritatingly thoughtful". Makes me grin every time!
  4. Yeah . . . Sorry Kupala. :( I'm glad you didn't say it all too.
  5. I wish it didn't have/had to be that way, for something as important as a parent-child relationship to go sour because of someones personal choice of path. I 'm sorry it happened to you. I have to make the choice not to say anything to my parents often. I reevaluate it because it is such a desire in me to share, and I then look at my motivations, which are selfish ones, and what would happen to them if I told them. It helps that they can be a bit oblivious sometimes, see only what they want to or expect to, especially when they are in my home. Yeah I would like to second your entire last sentence.
  6. My parents would still love me and accept me, but due to their beliefs, they would worry about my soul, my spirit, the immortal part of me. They would fret and worry and be anxious and frantic. My mom is prone to negative thoughts to begin with, something she consciously battles on a daily basis, and this would --can't think of a good word except damage her, damage both of them. It would literally make them sick. And I have always been the "steady" one of my siblings, the one they don't have to worry about.
  7. Thank you so much Aloe. Rereading this sentence actually brought tears to my eyes. Its been on the forefront of my mind again lately I have always been able to share important thoughts and who I am with my parents, especially my mom, and it hurts not being able to with this. But they are in their 80's, their faith and beliefs very important to them. etc (don't want to repeat my post by mistake here.) Yes, I agree so much with what you wrote. Simply; I love them.
  8. In a word "Yuck" or Methinks she doth protest too much.
  9. Yes! And yes! I feel the same way. I'm not about to paint a bullseye on my children's chests. Not many people know. My husband, his best friend and wife, my kids, one of my brothers and my best friend. That's it. These ones who post things like like "Post this if you're not ashamed to be a witch!!" as if privacy and secrecy were due to shame, and they tell EVERYONE!" They make me growl. Yeah, well hopefully you don't have kids and hopefully you live in NYC! (NOT saying everyone who is "out" is this type, hope you guys know what I mean)
  10. Awww shucks, the pic ain't up anymore.
  11. A thought came to mind a couple of times. How can I put this? You don't have to save everything you find. In other words, don't feel obligated to save that feather, or those pieces of mirror, or whatever, just because it is there. Listen to your instincts and if it doesn't resonate with you, let the object(s)go. Otherwise, a person can get weighed down by their belongings or by feeling they have to save every single bit of this and that until they have to buy a new home just for all their stuff. (like G. Carlin would say). Just a thought. :)
  12. My mom used metal coffee cans for everything when I was a kid. :)
  13. Save your candle "nubbins", and broken pieces to melt down and make more candles. Organize them by color in those plastic food containers you can get at grocery stores these days, so your white candles don't end up red, etc. Use a metal coffee can for the wax and put it into another pan double boiler style. Do not ever leave it alone on the stove. Be sure to have a fork ready to scoop out all the old wicks and lay them on paper towels to dry and re use. Practically anything can be used as a candle mold, but remember you'll have to get that candle out so I don't recommend soup cans. :P frozen juice cans are my favorite--you don't have to fill them up if you want a shorter candle. Before pouring in the wax, be sure to liberally coat the inside with vegetable oil--- it will help your candle to slip out. Also when pouring your candle ALWAYS save some wax! Drying candles tend to form a hole/depression near the wick that will need to be filled. Roll the mold between your hands to loosen the candle up to help get it out. If you have a candle holder with a glop of stuck wax, put it into the freezer for a few hours. It'll pop right out! A container with wet sand makes a great mold. Just make an indentation in the shape you want, carefully pour in your wax and instant sand-candle! The sand will stick to the outside of the candle. Once the wax is set but still goopy you can add stones and things. Its very satisfying to make your own candles. :)
