  • 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. Great topic choice! I also enjoy weightlifting, and I absolutely love swimming (it sucks that all the swimming pools and rec centers are closed right now, but what are you gonna do), because I have always been very drawn to water-- it's very stimulating and energizing yet cathartic for me. Art is my passion, and I feel very connected to my purpose in life when I am creating. I have been exploring a lot of different media in art lately, and would love to learn more about bookbinding and forging FrozenThunderbolt! Also recently got into gardening and am trying to grow my own tomatoes for starters... we'll see how that goes haha
  2. Hoping for thunderstorms

  3. So far, I only have two-- the first is a phoenix on my left upper arm, to symbolize me coming out to Colorado and building a new life for myself. The second is a columbine flower on my right shoulder, which is the Colorado state flower. Both are of my own design, and I have a bunch more planned.I am planning a star tattoo, I would like to get an eye of Horus, and I am also coming up with a half sleeve design, but I'm still not sure what it will consist of. I'm considering symbols of the underworld, but I am not sure if I will stick with one set of mythological symbolism or mix and match.
  4. Very nice! I also do work with sigils, although like Onyx, I burn them to activate them, so I do not have any on hand to show.
  5. I have to admit that New Agers aren't my type-- like a lot of people on here have already commented, all that white magic only, rede-based, blessed be crap makes me want to vomit. And it's frustrating, because now everyone I know seems to automatically assume that any pagan they meet is like that. So long as they don't force their ideas on me, they can do what they please. I can't stop them, and quite honestly, I have no interest in them to begin with.
  6. I am a very visual person, however I have heard and felt more spirits/ghosts/demons than I have seen them, ironically. I have seen orbs of light, and there is what I believe to be a dark spirit that I have seen once and heard/felt many times. I have heard it whispering to me and heard its footsteps above my bedroom. One of the spirits I saw was in my parents’ new house; they had purchased it from a Lutheran minister’s widow, and when I saw him one night, he was in human form but looked like he was composed of webs or some pale, ethereal substance. He was extremely still with deep, hollow eyes. I honestly didn’t feel any judgment or malice from him. He was just there. The spirits I have encountered have whispered to me, also once when I was helping with an investigation, the spirit gave me her name in my mind. She was a murder victim. I have called upon the spirits of ancestors to come to me depending on my purpose, and spirits have visited me of their own accord. The first encounter I had was in my parents’ old house; the basement had a door leading to some concrete steps outside. One night I remember hearing a loud, growling noise from that part of the basement, but we had no pets at the time. I was more curious than terrified, so I went over to see it. I didn’t see any physical form, but that night in my dreams I heard the growl again and saw it as a wolf with piercing eyes.
  7. Thank you guys so much for the feedback! Yeah I'm having fun playing around with watercolor-- the tough part for me is not putting it on too thick, letting the brightness of the paper come through. I've considered trying gouache as well, but I thought I'd stick with this for a bit longer. One thing at a time lol
  8. I can definitely relate on the subject of secrecy. For me, it's like showing my artwork (which I actually managed to do just now on this site)-- I feel like a piece of me is being shared with the outside world, and that is difficult for me; not because I am afraid of what other people will think (screw them if they can't handle it), but because it makes me feel naked almost. It's a comfort zone thing. Regarding witchcraft specifically, I have only told those closest to me because I don't feel it's necessary for the whole world to know my life. My mom knows, I think she told my dad but I'm pretty sure he has forgotten lol. And my best friends know. That's pretty much it.
  9. I've been playing around a lot with pen and ink lately, also watercolor. Here are some examples of my projects
  10. Same here, this is inspiring me to do something like this :-D
  11. I'm reading "The Shadow Land" and have just started on "Winter's Tale"
