  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    If reading about it and carefully trying various things for the past twenty years is an indication. But reading is not doing. I am a cautious doer, preferring to learn before jumping in. I tried Wicca twenty years ago. Not for me. I craved authenticity and a connection to my European heritage
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Yes. Wicca. Dropped it in a heartbeat.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I consider myself a current practitioner
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Curating and using in the real world the cunning and magic of European ancestors, not a hodgepodge of different cultures and paths. For me, being of Germanic/Bristish/Scandenavian heritage, I am especially drawn to the wortcunning of old Anglo Saxon England. Herbalism, both medicianal and esoteric draws me in deeply and has since I first grew my own medicinal herb garden in my early teens.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Close to twenty years
  • What brought you to our site?
    A search for something authentic, meaningful and genuine. Not Wicca silliness. Very hard to find. I have enjoyed reading posts for along time, but was forbade from joining because for a while it appeared you were not taking new members.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to learn much from others and perhaps I might humbly submit any insight I may have gained, though I am constantly learning and will always feel like a newbie.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Herbalism. I seem to have disocvered an affinity for trance work, which I would not have expected.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Probably many. I feel the need to learn better in the matter of drawing energy and grounding. Basic, I know.

  1. It had occurred to me to use knot magic, but macrame is new to me and I was too busy learning how to do the knots. At the very least, they look very attractive hanging in my windows. Being of mostly English heritage, I am particurly drawn to English folk magic. Thank you both for your replies.
  2. So I searched on here but did not see an in depth discussion of witch balls. I know they have been used to ward off negative entities in England for at least three centuries, but I was wondering what the members on here thought of them. Have you used one? Did you put anything inside? If so, what? Did you do anything else special to it before hanging it in your window? I just got through doing a project that I had put off because I though it would be hard and it wasn't. I macrame'd hemp twine around a large blue orb I had gotten from a craft store last year on clearance. Esthetically, I was very pleased with the results. I have one more orb to do. Part of my intent is because it is very beautiful, but I am also asking on the basis of using it as a ward. I would like a Trad view of this if any have any experience in this area, please? :D
