  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    On a scale of 1 to 10, probably a 7.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I was born into an Irish Catholic family where the paganism of catholicism was not lost on me. As a teen I tried protestantism and then wicca. For many years I've considered myself a pluralist, and for the most part still do.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Yes. Candlework, poppets, herbal, stroking...
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    It means using the energy of the infinite, which is in and outside all of us; neither 'good' nor 'bad'; which is nature; which is connections to one another, to manifest the things that you need or desire into becoming.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Off and on about 15 years.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Ready to learn what I need to embrace and manifest my power.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I expect to get understanding, support and advice and I hope to provide the same.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Connection to ancestry; empathy.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Visualization.

  1. Has anyone watched the show Luna Nera on Netflix? It's in Italian, I think but I watched it with English audio. The opening song is really good and it's definitely a somewhat strange show but I chalk it up to having a european sensibility when I'm an uncultured American. Anyway, it's about witches and witch hunters and has a sort of Romeo and Juliet element to it. It was really aesthetically satisfying. Wondering if anyone else has tried it.
  2. I second Valerian. I love that stuff when I need to relax or sleep. Also if you have access to it you could try a full spectrum extract. That may also help.
  3. You shut your filthy mouth!!! 🤤
  4. Somewhere in this long old thread I’m pretty sure I prattled on about how secrecy is a really big thing for me. My dad is super stoic and super Catholic. He’d kick me out of his house if he knew half of the real things about me (ha!). He likes to hike and collect cool looking rocks. He’s had this HUGE rose quartz he found for a long time just sitting in his guest room. Just visited a few months ago and I asked him if I could have it. He said “What are you gonna do with it?” (kind of attackingly, because he’s like that- like “gimme a good reason”) and I paused for a moment and almost didn’t answer and then I said “magic”, kinda like maybe I was joking but with a straight face. He thinks I was joking. Either way, I got to take it home with me.
  5. I know the first three seasons are on Netflix now... was thinking of diving in but with two season not available I’m wondering if I’ll just end up sorry I started it...
  6. After reading through all these great replies and having struggled myself I just had a thought... why not do a kind of book report or journaling of what you’re reading (I’m really typing to myself)? If you get stuck and all you’re doing is reading, maybe start analyzing and breaking down what you’re reading in a notebook of some kind and find out what your own thoughts and feelings are. Just an idea.
  7. When I was a teenager this question plagued me. I consciously asked myself this question all the time, whenever confronted with an internal conflict. I remember thinking “This is what life is all about... constantly having to choose between my heart and my head”. Back then I followed my heart a lot. And I shouldn’t have. I should have followed my head. It was the conflict between what I wanted and what was best for me. And I think when we are young, we don’t have a lot of self control so we tend to choose what we want. And a lot of times be sorry we had. However I really feel like a lot of that is youth. As a relatively mature adult (which I feel is hard to find these days) we can end up choosing head too much because choosing heart really hurt. But when we can see what is best for us and how to navigate following our heart while not putting it in peril, it’s definitely the richer and more fulfilling choice. I truly think it may depend on how old (or how much life experience) one is. I followed my heart five years ago, against all the odds, and I am living a true-life happily ever after. So in the end, heart.
  8. I found Wicca when I was very young too but felt it was too flowery and aesthetic for my tastes... in retrospect being “witchcraft light” is so spot on. And I needed something more authentic so I actually ended up turning away from Wicca and using my instilled Catholicism for a while to connect for me; learning more about paganism and occultism through it. That only lasted a few years and then I worked my way trad. Wicca was a good gateway I suppose but it did turn me off and very much does now but I’m an old crone.
  9. A lot of Grimes. And some hang drum.
  10. Thanks to everyone- after reading replies and thinking about it, I realize it’s not a smart thing to do so I won’t be doing it. @onyx Let your heart be at peace! ????
  11. I realize this may ultimately be an idiotic question and maybe I’m just looking for permission to do it but I have So. Many. Books. Can I just rip the pages out that I want/use most and then put them all in one book/binder? I’m not gonna throw the rest out but then I can have one go-to book instead of pulling out a bunch every time I want to do research (I also feel like I will be much more comfortable writing notes/thoughts in them instead of writing inside nice new books). I dunno, I feel like that’s cheating or being disrespectful somehow but the more I think about it the more I think I really wanna do it.....
  12. Just for the sake of closure and interest, I found the film, and the tree I was looking for. It is what a main character calls a “shrine” but it looks to be a very pretty clootie or wishing tree (cuz it’s in a movie, of course). It is in the middle of the film “A Little Chaos”. It’s a very brief scene and the tree itself doesn’t really push the narrative forward. It’s beautiful though and I took a lot of photos. Thanks for everyone’s help!
  13. I live in a very urban area and it *is* difficult to acquire things sometimes. Perhaps developing an exchange (a new forum room) would be a good idea? I’m sure I can get things others can’t (live near ocean, graveyard dirt, railroad nails, etc) that I’d be happy to send to help others. I’ve longed for this type of thing.
