  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Very familiar. I was interested in Wicca when I was young, so I read a lot about it and finally had myself initiated into a coven who was accepting 17-year olds. This lasted for only a few months when I realized I did not believe in a God and Goddess, and found the teachings of my mother to be more beneficial and fascinating. Even before Wicca I knew more about witchcraft than most of the coven did, which was more traditional and old-fashioned than what they practiced.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Lots and lots over the years...finally realized I'm a mixed bag. I seem to be following a bit of a left-hand path. I find myself very interested and good at Cthonic Witchcraft. I find my beliefs and practices to be a mixture of Assyro-Babylonian and Hellenic demonology/demonolatry with a Luciferian model. Definitely into spiritism more than theism.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    It's hard to answer this question because the definition of Traditional Witchcraft varies and changes with each person. When I strayed away from Wicca I went back to practicing Hellenic/Assyro-Babylonian witchcraft, which I find to be the path most suited for me. I do celebrate the Sabbats, especially the Summer Solstice.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    I believe Traditional Witchcraft means that there is no doctrine we adhere to, or do we affiliate with a religion. I'm sure there are Traditional Witches who revere gods/goddesses, yet I believe in Traditional Witchcraft, you are responsible for your own actions and intentions.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    About 8 or so years. My mother told and taught me witchcraft for longer than that but wasn't fully immersed until almost less than a decade.
  • What brought you to our site?
    I was tired of stumbling on witchcraft sites than ended up catering to Wicca/Wiccans, so I typed in "Non-Wiccan Witchcraft" and this site came up. I also read some of the articles and realized this is the resource I have been looking for for a long time.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I expect this site to not only be resourceful, but diverse as well. Once I read the article about Satanic Witchcraft after reading an article about tree woods and their magical aspects I knew this was an excellent, resourceful, and eclectic. I have a lot of information about witchcraft from around the world, especially from the British Islands, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East that I could contribute. I want to explore and read about how other people practice Traditional Witchcraft.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Not at the moment.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I mostly bind and summon, so these are my strongest points. Also enjoy working with plants and herbology.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Practicing spells with others.
  1. Anyone here ever experimented around with the Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg? It's a beautiful deck that also provides a firm, grouded explanation of what each card's symbolism is and how to read them. Definetely one of my favorites.
  2. I am jubilant to see all the fascinating comments I have received on my post. I would like to clarify that there are indeed many ways familiars can be utilized or interpreted...it just depends on the witch, where they're from, and what they are practicing. My interpretation of familiars are somewhat antiquarian and traditional. I didn't want this post to come off as one-sided. I just personally never affiliated familiars as being a physical animal like a cat or dog or any kind of pet, because it seems that it would be a great limitation for them to be something 'material' instead of something malleable and able to do the appropriate tasks. I did not mean for this post to come off as dogmatic or rude. I'll make sure that next time I make a post such as this, I do not come off as such.
  3. Oh man these sound delicious! I can't wake to make these. Blueberry muffins are the perfect thing to bite into on a good Summer day. :)
  4. 1. What is your favorite witchy movie? Haxan or Suspiria. 2. Where is your favorite place to do a spell? A graveyard or a rustic forest. 3. Where do you NORMALLY do your spells? My backyard. 4.

Room that smells of fresh herb and burned frankincense. Demon altar in bedroom. Wears the color black a lot. Need I go on...? 20. How long have you been a member of this forum? A year and one month.
  5. So I found this link, which decodes the manuscript as using medieval Latin abbreviations that correspond with certain word patterns: https://arstechnica.com/science/2017/09/the-mysterious-voynich-manuscript-has-finally-been-decoded/
  6. Cat Whiskers! I love it! Need to collect them next time my cat's not in one of her cranky moods.
  7. So I've had this problem for a while but I'm starting to figure out how to deter the pesky felines. I started covering my garden in twigs and pushing pine cones and other pricklies into the soil. Cats prefer soft soil to walk on, so I've been finding it's doing the trick. I also put citrus peel in the compost. I just discovered cats don't like citrus fruits.
  8. I'm speaking on behalf of personal experience and from divination books I've read in the past, but it sounds like maybe you weren't fully "grounded" while doing the tarot work. I found out that when I first explored into tarot divination, I got distracted often and my head was in the clouds. While I highly doubt you were possessed, I think that maybe you were keeping yourself open and vulnerable for a spiritual influence to come and make you puke. Just out of curiosity, how could you tell this spirit was malign? I know throwing up in a cab isn't exactly the friendliest gesture, but things can also be interpreted differently in the spirit realm. Could be a sign or an omen. I'm also going to be honest, I'm naturally superstitious. Could've just been a lunch that didn't bode well with your stomach. :D
  9. Well in that case, I wish Satan was much more prolific.
  10. I got rose. Don't agree with this at all.
  11. Me and my friend were joking about how we could use them as pins for witch dolls for an impotency spell. If you haven't felt a saguaro needle before, its sharp as hell and dangerous. I've heard stories about people getting stabbed by the spines and having to go to the ER from erythema. I've heard you can get an infection from being prickled by the needle but it sounds pretty rare. Banework, hexing, and/or protection are definitely at the top of my list. I scented them with anise oil to get rid of the gross glue smell. Definitely powerful stuff.
  12. Ah yes, Maman Brigitte. I read voraciously about Haitian Vodoun when I was younger and was surprised to see a white Irish lwa, until I heard that mercenaries brought Saint Brigid from Ireland to Haiti and she was integrated into the practice as Maman Brigitte. That's why I always wondered about all kinds of people practicing the religion, as it has many influences from around the world other than Haiti.
  13. By far the most unusual ingredient I have in my possession is Saguaro cactus needles. A good friend of mine who lives in that part of the Southwest United states gave them to me when he visited. The process for obtaining them was very weird. Basically he coated a small part of the cactus with woodwork glue and let it sit for an hour before rolling it up from the margins. He had to use tweezers to remove them. So now I’ve got dried glue-coated cactus spines that I have no clue what to use for. Any ideas?
  14. The title of this probably came off as pretty racist, but I wasn't sure how else to word it and I have this nagging question on my mind that hasn't left me for a while. For general background, I remember stumbling across some threads online saying how white people shouldn't practice Voodoo, as the religion was practiced by slaves brought to America who had to masquerade their beliefs behind Catholicism. Since their spirits and ancestors are connected with slavery, some people feel that white folks shouldn't be involved in the practice. I have a few more examples: -Folkish Asatruar believe that only those with Northern European descent should practice the religion, as they feel the religion ties with their cultural background. -Some Native Americans shamanic groups only want those with Native American blood in their circles. -A handful of Santa Muerte cults feel that those with Mexican/Hispanic blood should only be within her practice. How do you all personally feel about a certain ethnicity or race practicing the folk religion of another? I know this is a very broad, complex question but I'm curious as to what you all have to say.
