  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I'm a fairly new witch, sort of dabbling in it occasionally for a few years and now finally taking the time to do the research on botanical lore and the history of witchcraft.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    yes, but i stumbled upon green witchcraft and realized that it was a good match for the beliefs i had arrived at on my own through years of hodge-podge collecting beliefs that resonated with me.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    a few small spells, but mostly just research so far
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    for me it's a connection to an ancient tradition and to nature, a link to a more spiritual rather than clinical understanding of the world
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    two or three years, but only occasionally. it's only been a month or two since i started to devote more energy to it.
  • What brought you to our site?
    i don't know any other witches, or anyone i could talk about witchcraft with and not be judged. i liked the community this forum offers without having to necessarily find a coven in my city.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    i hope to meet some fellow witches and see their perspective of witchcraft, and i hope to share mine.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    no, i do not.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    herbalism, history of witches
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    i have a lot to learn! i don't know very many spells and am fairly ignorant of non-green magic. i am learning to read tarot but am not very good at it yet!
  1. hi! i don't know if this is the right place to post this, but i'm looking for protection spells for familiars if anyone knows a good one :) i have two familiars, two cats Juniper and Fluffy, and only Junie lives with me right now (I just moved and Fluffy has yet to join). Fluffy is at my mom's house living as an outdoor cat, and I worry about her every single day, but she can't come to my house for another week. add in the fact that one of my family's cats just passed away - less than a month after one of our dogs passed, both suddenly - and i'm worried about my Fluffy girl. It would give me peace of mind to cast a protection spell for her, and for Junie too, but I'm not sure how to do so. Or if you know of a spell for a large number of animals, let me know so I can cast it on my mother's pets when I go home next!
  2. I've been reading about folklore, superstition, and the accompanying history since forever! I was always drawn to it, even as a kid. Do you have any books you recommend? They don't necessarily have to be witchy!
  3. Thank you for your replies and advice! I'm also a huge collector, but instead of collecting witchy instruments I've been amassing a giant reading list I'm so excited to read and explore more and find where my affinities lie!
  4. i joke that i've always been a witch, because I've always been drawn to nature attuned to the "natural energy" of things, always believed in at least the possibility of magic - but in terms of actual, organized magical practice I'm still very new. i've been starting to explore what my path might look like - I know that I am drawn to nature magic, herbalism, crystals, and the tarot, and I've tried a few spells using sigils with mixed results. a friend (not a witch) suggested keeping a notebook of spells and results, bits of research that resonate with me, and lists of things to look into. i've been enjoying researching and experimenting, slowly compiling a practice that is uniquely my magic, but I'll admit that my excited scribblings and amateur spells look like a whole lot of nothing next to the fully put-together practices of more experienced witches. sometimes i think it would be nice to be handed a fully developed practice, but i also know that won't work for me. i suppose the frustration for me is feeling like i'm not enough of a witch yet. i know only time and practice can get me there, so i am trying to be patient! i suppose my question is, what were the early days of your practice like? was there a point when you started feeling like a Real Witch? do you have any advice for a newbie to incorporate witchcraft into daily life?
