  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Very. Aside from formal training in Wicca, I also have been involved in the broader magickal community for over 20 years. I have training in a British Traditional coven connected to Sybil Leek that existed prior to Gardner. I also have training in witchcraft as a folk magick practice, hoodoo, and the cunning arts.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Yes. Listed above.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Yes. I have worked with traditional grimoires. I have a regular practice as a hedge witch that is always evolving, and I have studied some of Cochrane's material.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Personally, I like Sarah Anne Lawless's stab at a definition:

    "Traditional Witchcraft as a modern accepted term used to refer to a specific witchcraft path and traditions within it which did not exist until the early 2000s. Before this time period there was no literature or groups claiming this label the way it is used today, but many influences for modern Traditional Witchcraft came beforehand in a period from the 1950s to the 1970s. These earlier influences most commonly included Robert Cochrane, Paul Huson, Joe Wilson, Robert Graves, and Victor Anderson. The later most common authors whose influence led to the creation of and modern definition of Traditional Witchcraft from a period of time from the 1980s to the 2000s includes E. J. Jones, Michael Howard and his periodical The Cauldron, Nigel Jackson, Nigel Pennick, Andrew Chumbley (post-2000) and Daniel Schulke (post-2000) — the later authors largely being influenced by the former. There are also more recent internet-savvy popular writers who now have their own cult followings due to the lore and hard work of the groundbreaking men who came before them. Most modern witches who claim they practice Traditional Witchcraft are mainly influenced by Chumbley’s Sabbatic Witchcraft, the writings of Robert Cochrane (also via Joe Wilson and E. J. Jones), and the practices and beliefs of Paul Huson in his work Mastering Witchcraft – whether they know or acknowledge it or not as the lore from these men may have come indirectly through another person or resource."
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    About 20 years
  • What brought you to our site?
    I've been interested in exploring the broader magickal community and learning more about the folk magick practice of witchcraft outside of my tradition.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    Information and a network of witches who view things differently than the other people I have come across in the past.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Yes. Witchvox for sure. There may be others, but I don't go to them regularly, because they didn't seem to remain active.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I love to study and research and then put my discoveries into practice. My spirituality is constantly growing.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    I could be more spontaneous and follow my intuition more.
  1. A few years back, I came upon an awesome recipe for an oil that made you more sexy and inclined others to have sex with you. Every time I use this potion, I have an amazingly wonderful night, and whenever I give it to someone else, they experience similar results. I was genuinely surprised by this because I found the recipe on a rather cheesy video, but, nonetheless, it works, so I don't quibble. My success with this formula over the years has led me to look for other effective grimoires, books, rituals, or spells focused on glamour. Unfortunately, there is a lot more bad material out there than there is reputable stuff. Does anyone know where I might begin doing some research into the more reputable sources for good material on glamour?
  2. I accidentally published the post twice. Sorry about that, but I can't seem to delete it.
  3. I just found this post, and I couldn't stop reading it. I don't have much to add that wasn't already said, so I will just give a resource that you can look into further if you're interested. I have an active ancestral veneration practice, which I have been doing for the past 4 years. I recently had a terrible experience with it, and I determined to take a break, regroup, and start over, but that's another story. In order to better educate myself (beyond the material I have been given), I found a wonderful book called "Communing with the Spirits" by Martin Coleman. He defines the difference between a medium and a necromancer. He also gives a basic and tested pathway towards developing your skills in necromancy. I highly recommend the book to anyone considering starting a practice like this. It has been incredibly useful to me in my own journey.
