  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I've had an interest in witchcraft for years but I haven't attempted serious practice until now. I've read many books and done a lot of research online but I don't have much practice.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I've researched a few different paths but I know traditional witchcraft is the one for me. Even when I first began researching, wicca immediately seemed wrong to me. I haven't connected with any other paths like I did with this one. I haven't yet found what specific culture's traditions I most relate to, but I am keeping my mind open to see where my path leads.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I have attempted some spells but I feel I'm still in the learning stage.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    To me its about making my own rules and taking responsibility for my own decisions. I've always been a bit of a rebel so I've never liked being told to do something just because that's how it's done. I feel traditional witchcraft is very open and extremely customisable to whatever feels right to the individual. The most important part of traditional witchcraft to me, that sets it apart from other branches is the balance of 'good' and 'bad'. Although both are subjective, it's important that I'm able to decide for myself what is right for my situation and then act and take responsibility accordingly.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    About 3 years
  • What brought you to our site?
    Researching traditional witchcraft on Google. I liked the forum aspect as I have many questions I'd like to ask. It seems a lot more personal to ask someone in real time about their experiences rather than relying on information just found online.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    Gain helpful knowledge from more seasoned witches to help me on my path. A community who understands the 'darker' side of witchcraft and is comfortable discussing it. I want to contribute what I can, share my opinions and experiences once I practice more. I want to start interesting discussions.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Retaining information, divination, feeling energies
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Meditation

  3. Oh thank you! For some reason I didn't even consider numerology haha. I feel very drawn to this simple deck so I'll definitely try the things you've suggested to be able to read it. I do tend to bite off way more than I can chew and have lots of different things to focus on at once. I included a picture of dome of the cards in the deck if you're interested. Thanks for all the advice, it really helped :)
  4. I've just recently started really practicing reading the tarot. I have two different decks that are extremely different. One is very detailed and the other is very minimalistic with only line drawings and uses basic symbols for the minor arcana. The images on the simple deck also seem to be completely unrelated to the traditional imagery. So I have a few questions. Firstly, when the minor arcana have no individual images, do you just remember the meanings that you've learned elsewhere and apply it? Or is there some trick to feeling intuition when there aren't many visual clues? Secondly, the basic meanings for the major arcana in the simple deck are completely different from what the cards usually mean. Would it be okay to ignore them and just use the meanings I've learned before, or should I stick to the 'vision' of the deck and learn the unique meanings? Lastly, how differently do different tarot decks usually read? How much have you found is from your own knowledge and intuition and how much is down to what the artist has chosen to portray? How important is the art style in a reading? Thank you for any help :)
