  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I have considered myself a pagan for over 20 years. For the first half of that, all my learning came from Wicca. As that was the only resource I came across. I thought that was modern witchcraft for a long time. Now I know better.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Raised Roman Catholic then Wicca
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I tend to follow my gut, so I've probably practiced in a traditonal way for longer than I realised.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Traditional Witchcraft feels like two things, "real witchcraft" as in no nonsense and cultural traditions that get handed down. Wicca taught me a lot but I also disagreed with a lot of the teachings. This feels more natural to me.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Since I was 14
  • What brought you to our site?
    Getting to the roots of Traditional British Witchcraft
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    Knowledge and Community. I will contribute if I feel I can add to a conversation in a constructive way, but I'm also a bit of a clown, so if I can make someone laugh, then it's time well spent.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Yes, a local Pagan group on Facebook.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Charms and Talismans.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Being with nature!

  1. Domovoi is obviously the Slavic name and will have it's own traditions. The folklore surrounding them is similar to the British Brownie. Brownies can be rather mischievous and play up when the home is neglected. Milk & Honey is the traditional offering, as it is for a lot of things. But if I were you, I would look into your local land spirits. What is your local folklore? Yes you could possibly get Domovoi & Brownies in the US, but like I said, look into your local folklore. Do some divination on it and see if that comes up with any clues. Also record the times you hear/see these things happen. Like Mona said with the animals, see how they react. Cats are known to see things we can't, so if yours is staring at something that isn't obvious to you, then there could be something there. But that won't help you tell what it is. I think your best bet is probably the divination route. Also what household protections have you got in place?
  2. Try looking at the Bushcraft type camping shops. Lightweight Cauldrons are quite popular for those who enjoy a more rustic camp.
  3. First off @Ravenshaw I love the way you wrote that. You would make a great creative writer 😉 Internally my balance of light and dark is still tipped to the darker side. I was reluctant to let go of the darker months from last year, as I find myself in a sombre part of my life, so I'm looking forward to them returning. The wheel keeps turning but I'm wanting to jump back. With everything that is going on maybe skipping the whole year wouldn't be such a bad thing. But then it's like you said, only from destruction can we truly grow. I don't have anything planned for the equinox but maybe between now and then I will find more of a balance.
  4. It looks like a few of us did some baking for Lughnasadh, so thought I'd start a thread asking those who did if you would like to share. Usually I'm lazy and just end drinking beer and eating donuts lol But this year I decided to make an effort. I made a Harvest Wheatsheaf Loaf as an offering to the local land spirits, which I left out until the First Grain Moon and then divided it into four and placed around my property. The mouse is traditional. It's a Harvest Mouse, which got it's name as they were only usually seen when the crops were harvested and they would run out of the field.
  5. An emotional and powerful song this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2cbhYihBWY (A bit annoying that embedding videos doesn't work anymore)
  6. Very Nice! I particularly like the butterfly!
  7. I've tried watching her baking show on Netflix a couple of times but it's just too cringe worthy. I love baking and spooky stuff, so her Curious Creations should be perfect for me but alas. Think I'd prefer it if they just kept it about the baking and not the amateur dramatics.
  8. So I don't know much on this topic, well, F All really haha but my wife is a Yoga Teacher and when I was helping her study I came across Mudras. They are different hand positions you use when meditating. It sounds similar to what you're describing. Anyway this graphic will explain it a lot better than I can...
  9. So I have a situation in my life that I would like a certain outcome with. But I am also very torn over it and I'm in two minds. (Sorry for being cryptic but it's a very personal matter). However, I did wonder, what if I do a working for both outcomes, even though they contradict each other and just let the universe decide which one. Has anyone attempted such a thing?
  10. We have a WINNER! CONGRATULATIONS to Homeschoolie!
  11. - I have hidden 10 sets of Runes across the Forum - - Each set has a number, that number is a word in a sentence, there are 12 words in the sentence - - Translate the Runes - - The translation is a Quote - - The first person to message me the translated quote and the person who made it, wins a prize! - Good Luck
  12. Firstly I was sure I read something similar to this topic, but for the life of me I can't find it. If anyone does, please tell me, y'all know how I don't like duplicated threads 😉 That being said... A positive for me with the current covid situation, is connecting more with nature. Most mornings I'm going out for walks around my local nature reserve, when usually I'd just be at the gym or putting off going to work for as long as possible. But my walking enjoyment was short lived, as the amount of rubbish that was being dumped would fill me with rage. It has definitely gotten worse since the national lockdown. (I have written various rants here and deleted them, as it's going off topic a bit lol) Anyway, my morning stroll has now become a morning litter pick. I'm annoyed that I'm having to do it but also, well, I don't think proud is the right word, but at least it feels good to help nature when no one else seems to bother. Anyway, to the gifts. For a while now I've been trying to collect feathers of local territorial birds for a ladder. It has probably been close to a year now and I've hardly found any, other than really manky ones. Well, since doing my litter picking (I've filled about 6 50L bags so far, 2 tents and an inflatable lilo) I've found loads of pristine feathers, from crows, kites, magpies etc. All in the middle of my path, as if they had just fallen off the bird. I had been looking in the reserve every time I went there but it's only since collecting the trash did the feathers start appearing. Now of course it could be simply that I am outside more and it's the time of year that the birds are very active. But I've been told off by a few fellow witches for not taking something as a sign and always explaining it away. But this time, it is only from birds that I've been thinking about. And there are plenty of other species, especially pigeons. So I will take it as a sign of thanks. Have any of you had something similar happen? Was there something from nature that you looking for and it was only when you performed an act that you found it?
  13. @Michele no fixed date yet, just sometime in July. I've made a thread asking for any suggestions other than what has already been proposed. If there is something you would like to see discussed please feel free to add.
  14. We will be holding a topical chat soon, if you're interested.
