  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    From the few resources I've found, I am aware it is a practice and not a religion, that it is a reconstruction of pre-Celtic British practices, and that no two Trad Crafters hold the exact same beliefs or practice in the same way.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I was raised in the Episcopal Church, and although I have nothing against it, I found it wasn't for me in the end. Like many people, I turned to Wicca; I found it was incredibly limiting and restrictive, for a group of people claiming to be more open and accepting than Christians.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I'm not 100% sure yet what you would consider to be Traditional Witchcraft; I've cast a few spells in my time, including sigils. To date, they have always been effective. Maybe this doesn't count, but in the past, I have silently wished things on people that have frequently manifested in the physical world.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    To me, Traditional Witchcraft is connecting to nature, the spirits, and to an integral part of yourself. It means bringing out your innate abilities and creating what you desire. It could be through an actual spell, or it could be astral travel, meditation, or some other form of exploration. Or it could be as everyday as cooking or crafting something meaningful. Or even through deliberate thought.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Ever since I was a teenager-- when my spells started to work, I got kinda freaked out and took a hiatus from witchcraft. I went back to dabbling in my twenties. So 15-20 years, on and off.
  • What brought you to our site?
    It's the only site I've found so far that doesn't seem fake or superficial. No neopagan fluff here.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to get ideas and inspiration as well as a little direction. I plan to contribute my own ideas, interpretations, and thoughts on witchcraft.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    I've received articles and weekly updates from Blue Moon Manor. I used to belong to a Wiccan site, but I've long since unsubscribed.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I think mine is the power behind my intent-- when I desire to manifest something, the full extent of my passion and life force goes behind it.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    My lack of knowledge, both regarding spells and resources.

  1. Lol true-- still, lots of really good ideas here!
  2. It is definitely badass... Not sure it's what I envisioned for my calendar though...
  3. I've used a plumb line on my canvases to make a grid for sketching out my underdrawings lol
  4. No worries Onyx, and I have nothing against the wheel of the year... My point, however, was that that's not what this is meant to be lol
  5. So first of all, let me be abundantly clear: this is NOT a wheel of the year. This is intended to be a calendar of sorts that enables me to see what the sign, lunar sign and phase of the moon are on a given date. Obviously, it's going to be considerably bigger than I could fit on my small sketchpad paper. I'm considering using a large wooden circle for it with clock hands (like the kind you find at craft stores) as a base. Outermost ring is obviously the months, then the signs, then the lunar phases, then what sign each lunar phase will be in (haven't drawn that in yet), then the sabbats. It looks like crap because my compass broke (boo hiss), so I have freehanded the circles for now. What do people think? Would be interested to hear everyone's opinions.
  6. Baking bread for Lammas!

      What type of bread did you make? I did my first Harvest Loaf this year, which was time consuming but fun.

      I baked a rosemary-garlic bread from a recipe that seriously turns out perfect every time. There's none left lol

      Ooh nice!

  7. Same here 🙂 I've had cars screech to a stop on the road just by giving them The Look, as my friends call it, while they're speeding past me as I'm walking by.
  8. I have very vivid dreams-- like movies playing in my head-- very frequently, and I remember them when I wake up. Sometimes they have continuous story lines, other times they are very fragmented. Interestingly enough, I've never dreamt of my mother. I've had dreams of my gran dying (she and I are very close, she took care of me when I was young and started me on my Witchy path) and my dad growing wings and flying away (he was on business trips a lot when I was a kid and I loved him lots). Both of those dreams had me waking up in tears. I've also had dreams about spirits and inviting in negative entities. Not sure what to make of those. I can lucid dream as well, although I don't make the conscious effort to do it; it's just something I've noticed I do when I'm dreaming.
  9. Thanks Onyx! Yeah, for some reason I am more drawn to the mandala than to the others I drew, although I am proud of the butterfly particularly.
  10. Out of the two options, I would say heart, but to be more accurate I would actually say my intuition, which I don't know if I would combine with heart or not. As a lot of people have already commented, it can be difficult to choose between the two. My intuition is like my compass, or my GPS if one prefers, and it has never steered me wrong. Although I agree with heart overall, there are times when it is not immediately possible or advisable to follow your heart. My intuition has always directed me on how to get to doing what I love based on what was right at the time, like following a path that twisted and turned a lot, each time however getting closer to my heart's choice.
  11. Thank you Khundekling! It needs a little touching up obviously
  12. The fish was done with POSCA pens, the mountains were done with COPIC markers, and the last three were done with Koi coloring brush markers. Not sure what I was doing with the last one, but I like the way it turned out all the same.
