    Um... I would say since before my eldest son was born, so definitely almost 15 years.

    Googling for reviews of Raven Grimassi's book "Old World Witchcraft", and the more I read about Trad Witchcraft, the more it makes sense to me.

  1. I now have a black kitten. His name is Binx :) I got him for free from a coworker who charged everyone else $50. I also got a free carrier and a free scratching post from the coworker, lol.
  2. I have Gordon Winterfield's book, Demons of Magick, but haven't yet used the rituals. I also have some Gallery of Magick books and have gotten pretty good results calling up angels & demons at once. It's an interesting journey. If you like, PM me and I'll give you the link to a forum where it's all demon talk all the time.
  3. Once I found out the Viking might be leaving, I knew I would have to find someone new to carry the charm. Naturally, this stressed me out. However, it being solstice weekend, and with things going all too well on other fronts (such as my love life, which turned out to be a handful of mashed up dead leaves aka faerie gold 😕), I whispered my need to the spirit of the store and knew it would be taken care of. (The masks are great for things like this, ya know?) For the sake of privacy, we'll go with the names I created for the people helping me carry the energy of the ward = The Warrior, The Viking, BB Witch, and now The Guardian of Produce, who I'll call GP, for the sake of brevity. Oh snap. Not two hours later, one of my friends pulled me aside. "He said he put a love spell on me, that was the day I met Boyfriend! He just confessed he practices magick... I think GP is the one to carry Viking's charm! You should ask him..." Skip ahead. I made GP a new charm, from dragon's blood ink and charcoal. The first tip off was when he got really excited, wanting to know every way he could help. I told him who the other people were, and walked him around the store to know the locations of the charms for the ward. He said he would connect with the Viking and find out the deets on the center charm. That night, I was awoken twice to hear his true name in my head. The first thought in my brain? Oh what? It isn't a fluke? -- Previously to this, I had only energetically connected to the Warrior in a similar manner. The Warrior is the only one who doesn't want to be involved beyond lending his energy, and that's valid, so I never mentioned it to him. Over the course of conversation with GP last night, I realized why I never connected with Viking and BB Witch, and why their connections seem so "dead". It's because they not only lied about wanting to be involved, but they also don't believe in the ward, and are just playing around with things they don't understand. They were placeholders, until their charms could be passed on to people who weren't ready yet. My spirits confirmed that BB Witch is a liar, and GP's conversation with Viking came out, proving that the Viking simply does not care and just pays lip service (and is a bit afraid of me, which is sad). Nevertheless, even with their lack of connection, the ward has held. No one at the store has gotten the virus. For a shop right next to the airport, where everyone from the Lower 48 comes (they don't enforce quarantine here, and customers hardly wear masks), that's pretty amazing. As for what to do with BB Witch and the Viking's charms, GP suggested my friend(BB Bat) take BB Witch's. She knows about the ward and has started her Path recently. He's also in love with her which may or may not have influenced his suggestion, so I asked my ancestors and they said "she must be ready. It must happen soon." They also suggested someone else to carry the Viking's charm, but as for that one... I don't know. I ask him for protection when I have to check on the ward, through our shared psychic connection, but we hardly ever speak to one another. Yet he hears me, for on those days he always is around me, as though by his presence he is protecting me from unseen dangers (that's his mundane job, to top it off, lol). Where to go from here? Well, who can say? All I know is that this is the reason I was meant to stay at the store, and that since leaving my ex the unseen has come to my aid more times than I can count. And I have paid it back, by becoming the witch I was always supposed to be. Somewhere in the past, time loops. The me that came before, she did a ward like this one. But I don't think she had enough help. I think she died, trying to hold back the dark all alone.
  4. It drives me up a wall how when fluffy bunnies want your help they're beating down the door, but ask them for help and there's nothing but crickets...

      Well remember that the next time they want to know something, tell them to go read a book.

  5. Feeling very connected to the spirits of place today. Also, happy Halloween!

  6. Not quite a wish, but I have a thing for someone at work. I went into the cooler and said, "I want a sign he is still into me." The very instant I came out of the cooler, he came through the door of my department seemingly on his way to the trash chute with trash from all of the offices down the hall. Mind you, that is *not* his job. Another instance is just yesterday, I was wondering if he was still into me again, since he hasn't been at work in awhile. Lo and behold, my next customer had the same profession that he does. So... perhaps "coincidence"... but I doubt it.
  7. I've never done an official dna test, I already know what I am. I am 99% sure I got most of the micro-ethnic Trans-Carpathian genes, maybe a bit of the Swedish, English and Irish. I look very, very Slavic according to strangers, lol. Magically speaking, when I was into that dirty word, Wxxa, I got most results working with Eastern European and Northern European deities. As for famous witches of Eastern-Europe, sometimes folklore witches are all you're going to get. Sorry! Edited to add: I don't have a particular ancestral based practice on specific dna. I'm American and I mostly draw from English witchcraft (those ancestors were from the Marches) and animism really. Also I'm lazy. ,
  8. I'm back, sort of!

  10. Anyone else have weird dreams on Beltane? Both me and my son dreamed of family members' doppelgängers...

  11. Happy birthday!

  12. Realized I have been a member for a long time... also I've missed this place!

  14. Been having some intense dreams lately.

  15. I told my husband he "wasn't worth" casting a spell on. That took the wind out of his sails and also insulted him greatly. Although I don't recommend it (unless you want to start a fight), it is very satisfying in the moment.
