  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I've always known I was a little different but came across the term witch less than ten years ago and I've been practicing my craft in one way or another since.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Raised Catholic but I've looked at Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism... particularly death and dying rituals.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Depends what "traditional witchcraft" is? I've astral projected, lucid dreamed, done entheogens, made energy balls with my hands, communed with the fae, assigned servitors to me... I could go on!
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Getting back to our roots. I think secrecy used to be necessary for survival but with it came the loss of information. Now that so many witches around the world are coming out of the broom closet, I think traditional witchcraft is aspiring to learn how witches of the past practiced their craft.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    About ten years? I have a bad memory :/
  • What brought you to our site?
    Google.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I expect to gain knowledge, friendship, and creative fuel for my blog. I can contribute knowledge that I've gained from traveling my eclectic path. I'm also super passionate about tarot and am happy to jabber on about divination, so I'm excited to see a sub-forum specifically for it!
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Just my own, oootarot.com
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Wow what a question. I'd like to think my specialty is in protection, but I'm not sure if I'm really wise in this area or if I just like reading and talking about it, haha.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    I despise cooking for myself, I really want to make cooking a more magickal experience in the hope that it becomes easier to do for me.
  1. The failures of systems of care saddens but never surprises. On the bright side, you sound like a pirate now hehe I admire your flexibility! So you've got six pairs of cards but you haven't provided specific ideas on how they apply to your travel or relationships. What is the gist of your questions that produced these readings? What's your responses to each card? If you feel like spitballing, I'm happy to bounce ideas around with you :)
  2. Pay attention to your emotions when things flare up. Say he communicates that he wants you to pick a certain side of the sofa: is he demanding it or asking kindly? Did the way he ask make you feel small, objectified, or is it no big deal to accommodate his need for things a certain way? I mean if he's joking with you in the morning over coffee and toast that you slept in an odd way last night, I can see that being a playful exchange. If he's waking you up, raging at you, thinking you're out to get him or whatever, the emotions you're feeling will be completely different. Acknowledge your emotions, even if you feel you can't express them. In fact, if you feel you can't express them, that's most definitely a red flag. Reaching out to your support system (or building it from the ground up, Onyx mentioned Women's Centers, also any organization related to domestic violence, or even a community health center) can be enormously inspiring. Some places will help you one-on-one, so maybe someone would be your soundboard for whether something that's happened is acceptable behaviour or not. Other places will be more casual, hang-out and drink coffee kind of deal (can you tell I'm drinking coffee right now haha). I like to think of the Hanged Man's shift in perspective. Being around an emotionally abusive person will deaden you, numb you, you will give more and more until there's nothing left and even then they'll want more. They'll literally define your reality, or else. Being around healthy and supportive relationships, IMO, literally unbends the warping of your perspective that occurs from emotional abuse. Plenty of kickass (and even magical) people out there dedicating their work to supporting people through tough times. I remember thinking, at least he's not punching me, when I thought about how pissed I was that my ex would pinch me when he was mad. Now I look back and think about how pinching was by no means the worst thing he did, and that even if it was I didn't deserve to be pinched, wtf.
  3. You say you want happiness and success, it's not about the man, but then talk about how you want your happiness and success to manifest in your relationship with your man? It's a lot of energy to put into a person and honestly I think your concerns are legitimate. Mental illness can explain some shitty behaviors but it doesn't excuse it. You can understand where someone's coming from without condoning the decisions they've made. Forgiveness has its place, I mean my own mental illness has influenced me to behave not too appropriately at times but really, a pattern of violent outbursts in your lover isn't something where you can just wait and see what happens... What exactly are your boundaries in your various relationships? How do you react when they're being pushed and how do you wish you'd react? I think your tarot sessions would be more fruitful if you analyzed your end of relationships instead of worrying over what horrible thing they're going to do to you or what horrible thing you're going to do back to them. Goodness, if you know in your heart you're not going to cheat (emotionally or otherwise) then shouldn't that be that? Life and health is unpredictable, you only have control over what you have control over. If you don't know what exactly that is, maybe your deck does?
  4. Fantastic thread! The earth is indeed in crisis and I'd go so far to say that not considering your relationship to earth when using magick is daft. I mean, the fossil fuel industry infiltrating politics is probably more dangerous than litter-magick, but lacking conscious connection to your surroundings/environment seems like shooting yourself in the foot! Especially if you're in less industrialized areas, or places that you're just visiting. I wouldn't be opposed to putting glass in the earth to set up protection if I had my own land, but I wouldn't want to regularly be depositing glass into areas where you don't know what might be watching you... I keep seeing glitter being used in spell candles on Etsy... I prefer using crushed herbs to add a pop of colour. Melting some wax and affixing flowers to the candle is aesthetically pleasing and of course, flower magick. I love the idea of the earth consuming your offering, that's exactly what it feels like! I too look for hiding spots like holes in trees, the places where it feels like nature wants to take what you're offering. In new places that I plan on visiting often, I might ask the land to present a spot for me. Tried to google beeswax biodegradability/decomposition/recycling, would love to use it to enclose offerings... anyone know how long it lasts in the earth?
  5. I've never heard of the Enns but my class on Death and Dying briefly touched on Jinns in Islamic faith. I grew up and was schooled Roman Catholic ("until I reached the age of reason" - Carlin) so have a natural attraction towards imagery of angels as depicted in that tradition. I've worked with Angels relevant to this tradition in readings, but the Old Testament always fascinated me more. That led to curiousity for Kabbalah ma'asit or Practical Kabbalah. Right now I'm just divining with different archetypes found within the Hebrew Tree of Life using the Angelarium Oracle, that deck likes taking my breath away (I like combining it with tarot for an extra punch in the gut). I particularly enjoy that the Angels have personalities that allow the reader to go beyond the dichotomy of good/evil. When I was young I embraced duality and I either attracted or created two angels. Early thoughts understood them as two parts of a whole, opposite sisters or whatever. As I've relied on them through the years I think they're two personalities that individually meet different needs of mine, but also the whole is greater than the sum of its parts; they are synergistic.
  6. I played a bit of devil's advocate there, trust yourself and look for opportunities. Go about life and keep it in the back of your mind! When you see what comes up in your story in correspondence to a card, you'll eventually have a library of past experiences to affect your impressions of various cards. Reading for myself has (lately) been like a conversation with the deck. I've been working with multiple decks in one spread and every deck has a different voice. Jumpers can be just a part of what the deck has to say and it's up to you if it's important enough to add into your reading; there's also that feeling you get when you know when to stop shuffling, or which exact card feels right to pick. Personally, I'll do 3-5 small spreads with a few decks on hand, focusing on different queries each time but allowing fluidity in say the overarching themes/numbers/suits/symbols/etc. Just keep working with the deck and spending time on learning (it never really ends, by the way). Practice shuffling too. You'll get better and better control over your deck when your hands know what to do. This will also assist your bond with the deck.
  7. I have an intuitive style, but I agree with lovers being an indication of present feelings and choices. Dedication is relevant in my mind, too. Sparks turning into flames with fanning, that sort of thing. Tarot reading for myself can be very present oriented and it can feel like the deck is mirroring me sometimes--you seem to really like the person if they're worth a reading, maybe the card reflects this? Something to consider. So in terms of leaping cards, for me it depends on the deck. One of my oracles is super slippery so jumpers happen with some frequency. For more matte decks that fit my hands well, I might pull another card or two to add more depth to the message, particularly if the card that jumped happens to be playing the reflection game. edit: makes sense that you see adultery in Seven of Swords, witchinplainsight, I see thief.
  8. I love this hashtag for reaching out to potential new customers.
  9. I agree there is a time to keep silent, for example while the spell is 'incubating' because the reactions of others can have strong influences over our emotions, thoughts, and decisions. But I also think that every witch has their own relationship with silence and their own ideas of privacy. I think never speaking about your spells is a tradition carried on because that's how witches survived in the past, and it's totally applicable to those who need to keep their practice quiet, say if they live in a society that shuns it, but we have this amazing way of communicating to other witches via this forum. I say if you're comfortable sharing what's worked for you, then this ought to be a safe place to do so.
  10. Oh man I'd have so much fun with a tattoo machine hehehe enjoy! Got anything big planned or just practicing small for now?
  11. Hey! Astrophysics sounds like an interesting passion to follow. I like ideas of the universe being made up of cellular automata. Finishing my undergrad in Psychology (Arts). Applying to counseling and clinical programs this Fall, I'm too thrilled. I love school, haha!
  12. Hmm, maybe it's too pretty ;D I was gifted a double sided black handled blade. It's a monster and mostly decorative but I like having it around (well, I like having sharp objects around me in general).
  13. It happened again. Me and my SO ate the same things and he's fine so we don't think it's that. I thought I'd post here to document it and continue getting thoughts. I did three readings right after one another but I did my thing and I got really into them, made sure to recenter and check in with myself after each one... Not my first time doing multiple readings either. Went to lengths to not be distracted--did the reading in an an air conditioned room, the dog was relaxed... felt good right after, especially cause I got positive feedback right away for one of them. Then came the feedback from the second one twenty minutes later while I was doing a spread for my instagram cause I felt inspired; King of Cups and Una Ursi (the latter is the Flora Oracle, this plant is corresponded with intuition in the lwb), if you're interested. The second piece of feedback I checked on after and it confirmed the theme of protection that came through from the cards. That sounds cryptic and it's partly me trying be confidential but also I wasn't given much else to go on. I was lying down after watching some tv and the nausea came out of nowhere. Puked, then relaxed on the couch for a while, ate and am feeling better now. I'm aware that two times is not a pattern but I thought I'd update.
  14. Hmmm, given your description I don't think I attracted a negative entity or was possessed. I'm going to be mindful and ritualistic about putting my cards away to ground myself back in the present after a reading :)
