  • Have you explored other paths?
    I come from a Mormon upbringing, it was light at first and then got heavier as I got older and my Mother became more religious. Even at a young age I noticed that my mother and I both had the uncanny ability to know when things were going to happen, but I didn't know what it was then and Mom never said anything about it, it just was. I tried being Mormon but it didn't suit me, I looked into the Catholic (sp?) church and that didn't suit me either. When I got old enough I finally understood why none of the Christian churches suited me, I was different, I was a witch and no matter how far or how long I looked into Christianity it was never going to suit me. I decided to follow my own heart and began where I'm pretty sure just about everyone begins with Wiccan and while it seemed closer to my heart the strict forms and guidelines that you have to follow and the Threefold Law just didn't ring quite true in my heart either, how can you see a person who deserves to have a taste of their own medicine and you can't do anything about it lest you want it to come back to you threefold? Seemed a little silly to me. NOT that I would deliberately hurt anyone, I don't believe in that either. So I searched, trying to find a place where I would fit in, a label I could give myself (lol I'm Capricorn to the CORE!!!) I joined forums and asked questions and still none of it has rang true, it's gotten me closer to the truth in my own heart but never something that said 'hey here it is here is where you belonged' and I was starting to get discouraged. Then the other day as I was reading a
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    I'm a scholar at heart who's finally found the right spiritual path, and to me being a Traditional Witch means having the freedom to explore it. My mother would've been a pretty powerfull psychic but she's built up a mental block against it, her being Mormon pretty much explains it all. I have the gift through her, but I have also built up a mental block against it and I'm hoping that maybe here, in these forums, I'll meet some great people that I can learn and grow from and maybe a few suggestions as to how to get over my personal mental block. I know in my heart I'm a Witch, I'm just looking for a place where I can be around like minded people.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    Good people, good discussions, tidbits to add to my own personal knowledge, maybe be able to share the little I know with others. Hopefully some good suggestions on how to get past my mental block.
  1. 1. What is your favorite witchy movie? The Witches of Eastwick this movie cracks me up, although Practical Magic is really close to it. 2. Where is your favorite place to do a spell? In my bedroom 3. Where do you NORMALLY do your spells? In my bedroom, I'm so damn boring I know 4. What type of spells are your favorite? Healing spells, I naturally want to fix everything so I LOVE these 5. What is your favorite ingredient for a spell? Dragons blood this stuff smells so good and I can feel it adding to the power of the spell 6. What is your LEAST favorite ingredient to use in a spell? My Urine have to agree with AW on this one lol 7. What is your favorite witchy holiday/festival? Samhain, stereotypical I know but it's just so much damn fun 8. Do you have an animal spirit, If yes, how many? Yes, 2 9. If yes to #8, name the animal spirit(s): Falcon and Boar 10. Name your favorite witchy character: Hermione Granger from Harry Potter 11. When was the last time you did a hex/curse? Been awhile so I don't remember, but I'm cooking one up for a jerk that's been sexually harassing me at work, so this answer will change VERY shortly. 12.

Have you ever done a spell on someone just because you were bored? Yes, got burned for it too when he told me to stop casting shit on him, even if it was a good spell lol 16. What is your strength as a witch? Healing, hands down. 17. What is your weakness as a witch? Shielding myself properly, I just need help lol 18. If you could go back in time to meet ANYBODY associated in witchcraft, who would it be and why? I would love to look at my family line and see who was a witch and then talk to them, learn from them. 19. How much of a "modern stereotyped witch" applied to you as a witch? Not really that much, to look at me, you probably would never guess. 20. How long have you been a member of this forum? About 2 months, but since I'm not going anywhere anytime soon, that'll change too :D
  2. I like how you can take the ending of it a couple of different ways and I mean the very end not the really excellent plot twist, I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't yet, but are dying to see it, but you'll see what I mean. Oooohhhh it's so hard when you wanna discuss a movie and can't lol. It's so good I just can't spoil it for anyone.
  3. Ooooo December I absolutely love that!!! I love tattoos, the artwork and the designs that people can come up with, I'm so jealous of people that can draw. I've got the imagination, but zero talent lol. I have 4 with hopefully more on the way. A very beautiful rose on my left butt cheek, I love flowers of all kinds, but I didn't want my Dad to see it at the time, even though I was 18 and old enough to get them if I wanted I still didn't want him to see lol. The second one is the Chinese symbol for Lust on my left calf. Started out as a joke when I was younger, I had a VERY steady boyfriend and I didn't want anybody else, but was constantly getting hit on, even in front of him. He would laugh and say it was because I was so very Lustful, that was the way he would say it, you could actually hear the capital 'L'. Since, to me, laughter is one of the best medicines out there and I always like a good one, I got it to have a good memory chuckle whenever I look at it. 15 years later it still makes me smile when I look at it. The next one is on my right shoulder and was supposed to be 2 dolphins chasing eachother around a yin yang, but the artist sucked and it ended up looking like total shit, really pissed me off too because with a better artist it would've been beautiful, but I had it covered up with the theater masks with tribal behind them. Still think I might get the 2 dolphins again this time with a better artist. I got it A) because I love dolphins and the dolphins represented mans constant chase around good and evil and B) for the yin yang to represent that I had chosen good over evil. Little silly now I know, since then I've just learned that everything needs a balance but at the time it had a really deep meaning to me. Last but not least I have a dolphin on my right upper thigh, I just love dolphins but now it's been so long it needs to be redone and is looking kinda sad. I don't have any pics of them yet, but I'll put some up as soon as I do.
  4. I just absolutely LOVE the links you guys post in here, most of this stuff is stuff I wouldn't have thought to look up in a million years or even know where to look. Very interesting read.
