  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Novice, I'm finally letting myself explore this after wanting to for years.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    No, I don't like Wicca because it divorces practices from there roots.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Does candle work and crystals count?
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Something that is rooted in history, doesn't have to be strict but the person practicing knows and understands the context of what they are doing.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Only being doing my oracle for about 3 months again. Meditating, working on grounding and cleansing while I learn.
  • What brought you to our site?
    I want to learn the traditional path that isn't confused with Wicca without worrying about insulting someone that is Wiccan. I read some threads and really liked the interactions I saw and how people behaved well even when disagreeing.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    Just other people that practice as well, to talk about what I'm doing and trying wihtout fear of someone popping up to tell me I'm going to hell. Hopefully some reading suggestions and some guidence because google offers a lot of choices, and so many books it is overwhelming.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    I do not.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Knowing I have some connection with the Fae, and knowing my limits of what I can and cannot try right now
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    knowledge, I know nothing including not being sure where to start.
  1. @PapaGheny Thank you, we have been together for 3 years now, he has done well at earning my trust. I'll sometimes feel his love for me so strongly, and he will know just when I need something to help me smile in others. @Duchess Thank you, that last point about throwing a band aid on a broken arm, made a good point. I need to look into the nervous energy I'm feeling and do more self work instead of trying to throw magic at the relationship itself when after that I may keep feeding nervous energy into it, because I haven't let go of something. We mostly talk though text messages nearly every day. I guess what is stirring me up is when he is grumpy instead of risking taking out his mood on someone else he just stops talking, which is just how he is. Thankfully his vacation is coming up soon and that will help. Back to my self work, then. Since my insecurities that i had before him are still around, of course that is going to mess things up and mess with my ability to feel things clearly when we are so far away. I really appreciate both your responses!
  2. I'm in a long distance relationship. I've looked into relationship improvement spells but most of them assume monogamy, in a way that makes me uncomfortable because we are polygamous. I meet is wife first in fact and she is completely aware of me. I've visited twice with her knowledge and while she was there, she also has a long distance relationship. So that is some background on why I feel uncomfortable with the monogamy in a spell, I respect her dearly and I'm protective of her. The reason I want to do some energy work is the silly man is not good at communicating at times. I'm 38 years old and I feel like a teenager right now, but I'd rather look foolish then mess with the relationship between my SO and his wife. I was thinking an uncrossing spell might fit, but so many suggestions say to use stuff I just can't afford to go out and buy. I have 2 dollar store "7 day candles" I was hoping one of them might work. I just want him to open up with me again, whatever the truth may be. I just want to clear the blockage in our communication. I feel strongly that it is both of us, and I have a strong idea of what it is on both our sides. I'd like to send good loving energy to him and to help me feel that I've never felt his has failed me, words haven't been enough to calm the fears that he is failing me, and I'd like to send positive energy to replace the negative and the fears. I've been going by intuition with my other spells (just a few so far) but I feel out of my depth now. Thank you for reading my three am ramblings, I'll end this post with some things I've seen suggested that I do own if that helps with advice. Rose Quarts, malachite, tigers eye, Hermite, obsidian, mahogany obsidian (heart shaped), a plastic jar, (2) white 7 day candles, some chime spell candles, white votive and tea lights, and some herbs those are cheap enough that I could just buy some as long as it isn't to many. I have some other crystals but i think those might be the relevant ones.
  3. I one of those random "traditional witch book suggestions" lists and got really excited when I saw, Fairies and Witches at the Boundary of South-Eastern and Central Europe by Eva Pocs. I'm wanting to find information about faery faith in the Germanic area and this is right what I an seeking, but it is out of print. It is so frustrating with publishers lock away books like this in the digital age, it made sense with they had to physically print everything but it would cost them next to nothing to store it digitally and offer it in ebook formats. As I was searching for it i came across Witches, werewolves, and fairies : shapeshifters and astral doublers in the Middle Ages / Claude Lecouteux ; translated by Clare Frock, and my library as that, I'm just disappointed that I can't find an affordable copy of Eva Pocs book, she is still alive I'm sure she wouldn't mind the extra income, used book sales aren't helping her any.
