  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Quite familiar, have been practicing for years - still learn something new every day.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I beat to my own drum, and identify as Pagan
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Yes and i am also an avid student of astrology and other divination tools.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Honouring the universe, all energies in balance. Honing my craft and continually striving to learn more. I have not practiced with a coven before and traditionally have beaten to my own drum; now, I am looking for other like-minded witches to learn from and communicate with.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Practically my whole life but it has taken me years to understand that that is so if that makes sense. Organized spell work I have been doing for approx 20 years.
  • What brought you to our site?
    witchcraft sub/reddit actually! Witchy forums and networks are surprisingly hard to find. (which is good I think)
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    A sense of community with like-minded witches would be my ultimate goal. I have so much to still learn about the craft, and perhaps along the way I could help someone else too.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Healing, physic vibrations, divination
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    I would have to say organized spell craft

  1. Oh wow that's cool! Hope you enjoy them - she is such a brilliant author and the way she tells a story takes my breath away - you may fall down a rabbit hole of reading all her stuff after this be warned 😉
  2. Anne Rice's Mayfair Witch series is phenomenal if you haven't read those already I highly recommend them. And not witchcraft really, but Peter Straub writes some really creepy scary books - I would start with Ghost Story - still scares me to this day haha. Other than that, I would love to see what other people post because I love this genre too and there really isn't much out there for witches that is really scary. Maybe I should write something 😉
  3. Resurrecting an old thread that I stumbled on somehow - not even sure what I was searching for now - but wow what an amazing amount of information here. Just want to thank all of you for your sharing your wisdom, I've learned so much from reading through this. Aurelian: You've sent me down a rabbit hole LOL - picked up Cagliastro's book as you recommended and its been so mind-opening it's insane. At first I read it through out of curiosity, and at times I wasn't sure this path was for me (still not 100% sure it is) especially when she speaks about Sorcerers being people of the dark. I am a witch of the light if you will; a morning person, sun loving, give me the beach any day and a garden full of beautiful plants to talk to. But the more I read, the more I wondered if this path requires a witch to be a person of the night. I am a novice with this path obviously so could be totally misunderstanding, but does one have to necessarily be of the dark to be a necromancer? She mentions that the discarnate she works with prefer the dark and she obviously knows what she's talking about, so that's why I'm wondering if this path really is for me. That said, I do work with blood all the time in my spell work, I commune with the dead/spirits and am not put off by what she talks about at ALL. Anyways, just musing here so thought I would ask for anybody's thoughts who know more than me - would love more of a discussion on this subject because it has fascinated me. 🙂 Thanks again to all of you for sharing your wisdom - these conversations are why I'm on this forum in the first place.
  4. Short answer; yes, I would absolutely have still been a witch.
  5. My thanks to OP for this compilation - amazing work ❤️
  6. Forgive me if this has already been answered, but I'm new and just found this thread. Can I just say that I would LOVE to engage in a discourse about this, it's fascinating. As in, people rubber-necking at an accident scene fascinating LOL. Anyways, I too believe this and haven't met many others who have or, that could potentially have a great discussion about it.
  7. Resurrecting an old thread to say: this really resonates with me so thank you for sharing. I have always either been the quiet type, or, a complete blatherer but usually only when I'm stressed or am in forced social situations haha. In forced social situations my mouth seems to have a mind of its own and then I talk too much and say things I didn't mean to say just for the sake of talking. So, I have literally had to take a step back, become quieter and re-center my energies. Not let situations stress me out. I've always believed and taught my own children: "Mean what you say and do what you mean so own your words." Funny how sometimes we can forget what we've always known. Interestingly, (probably just to me) with my natal mercury trining Uranus in my 10th house this has trickled over in a massive way to my professional life. Lately, I have been often frustrated by my reports or other co-workers who don't read what i spent so much time to write and then misunderstand the entire thing, or, things I have said have been twisted to throw me under the bus. I should mention that I am NOT writing essays here, but simple policy documents or emails - really not hard to read or understand and are things I've written before this transit with no issues.
  8. I'm a herbalist and love to garden. I don't typically have many indoor plants though and I don't know why. Yesterday I moved my mini-weeping willow into our bedroom for the energy and it made such an immediate difference and I slept so good so I guess I need to move more inside - maybe some palm trees or something. In the garden, I have a greenhouse (not a big fancy one unfortunately, though that is the dream!) and when I'm out working in it I play music for my "babies". They particularly love Beethoven and Nina Simone LOL. Heirloom plants have always been a passion of mine, have always loved the idea of growing a tomatoe plant that is the same variety as a little old Italian lady grew over a 100 years ago. I imagine her saving that seed and passing it on and somewhere along the line it got to me. In my mind there is magic just in that exchange of energy. I grow all kinds of peppers, tomatoes, and herbs - the herbs I use in my spell work, culinary purposes and also in making healing ointments etc.
