  • Gender

  • Location
    Southern U.S. (I say ya'll and can properly spell ain't.)
  • Interests
    Reading, sewing, animals, travel, theatre, singing, cooking/baking, videogames.
  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Not very. I've read one book, cast a successful sigil, and made my very own kitchen witch (broom and all).
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Not really. I was raised Christian (Methodist) and still consider myself to be Christian. Like science and evolution, I've simply never computed why believing in one (Christianity) means you can't believe in the other (Witchcraft). Although if asked about my current specific denomination/train of Christian belief, I'm going to tell you Narnian. I've done yoga, but only as a physical exercise. The ability to meditate elludes me.I'm learning Tarot.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Not intentionally? I'm a new recruit.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    When I was little (seven or so), I would collect random herbs from around the woods in our farm. I would burn them for magical purposes (getting back at my sisters or keeping my animals safe), but always very secretively. I hid little bags of herbs and stones under my mattress, built houses and sewed clothes for the faeries in our pasture, and in general was incredibly peculiar and wild. I was a witch, attuned to the world around me and the living things in it. Then I grew up, and that wasn't how ladies acted. So I read Jane Austen and was soft spoken and (honestly) somewhat snooty. Then I grew up again and realized that ladies can read Jane Austen, play in the woods, and keep bags of herbs and stones under their mattresses, and still be ladies. And that, really, being snooty is unladylike. I want to be smart. I want to be strong. When my husband has had a bad day at work, I want to be able to whip up a tea that will soothe his physical and mental nerves, help him sleep, and give him peace. I want to have chickens that always lay, a pig that's never sick, dogs that never get lost, and a home that's always welcoming. I want to be a traditional Witch, who can cure you or curse you, and who doesn't have to wear special jewelry to do so.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Actually intentionally worked with? A month.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Trying really hard to find resources that aren't Wiccan.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I would love to get ideas and insight on how to progress in this craft. Guidance on studying and tranditions to follow (any Sabbats and observances, things like that). I don't know what I have to contribute currently, other than a sweet disposition and an open mind.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    I subscribe to the Witchcraft sub on Reddit. There is a Traditional Witchcraft sub (TradCraft) but it's pretty empty.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Well, I'm new, but I would say my intuitiveness. I often have siginifant dreams, and I can predict the gender of babies with surprising accuracy. :) I also cook and bake things so yummy you'll swear they're magic. And they might be.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Meditation/focusing.
  1. I bought all the ingredients to try this (local honey FTW!) and my husband is like and excited child. He's was hoping to try and drink it on Yule, but it will have only been done about 10 days by then. Would it be okay to drink, or just nasty? Also, is it safe to pour it back in the original glass bottle, or should I use something like an empty 2 liter soda bottle to allow for expansion? Can't wait to try it! :D
  2. Haha, I apologize! I am an incorrigible encourager. ;)
  3. Well, at least now I know. Haha! Thank you, again! :)
  4. Whoops, thank you! I'm sorry! Should I delete it and re-post?
  5. I tried searching to see if this had been mentioned before, but searching "BetterWorldBooks" yielded nothing while "Better World Books" yielded everything, haha. For anyone who isn't familiar, it is a site not unlike Amazon, but strictly for books. They offer free standard shipping worldwide (all the time), and a portion of their proceeds go to funding literacy programs all over. :) Despite being a charity, they're not (so far as I can tell) religiously affiliated, so all of the witchy books I've been looking at they have had. I hate that my first non-introductory post was a PSA for a commercial website, but I feel this book living crowd will be glad to hear about it. ;)
  6. I was lurking on this post before I was validated. :) It looks like if you go on Amazon and sign up for KindleUnlimited ($10 a month), you can read this book at no additional cost. I'm not a fan of e-books, but they can be a handy and cost effective alternative.
