  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Studied the path in one form or another for the past 17 years.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I've explored several pagan paths over the past two decades. However, I've yet to find my niche.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    No.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Traditional witchcraft, to me, is a path dedicated to reverence of our ancestors and the honor and communication of said ancestors.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Approximately fifteen years.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Looking for more information on traditional witchcraft. I found this site via Google search.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I expect to learn from other members information and lore that others have had the opportunity to learn over their years of experience. I'm not sure how I would be able to contribute apart from being an active member and student.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Yes, I'm a member of PaganSpace.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Dedication
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Finding motivation, which perhaps is more a weak point in my general self, instead of my craft.
  1. Lily... Haven't been artsy in a loooooooong time. LOL
  2. Every time someone else responds to this thread, I end up reading it again...and again.. and again. And every time something new resonates with me. Thank you, Startella for such an encompassing piece of writing that is so helpful to so many people. I'm so glad that this thread is pinned making it easily accessible.
  3. Yeah.... I had to do it too.... regardless that I would not say I'm an empath... My pre-cog is sporadic at best, but I suppose it's good enough for the quiz. You Scored as PrecogYou are a Precog Empath. You are a visionary & a human thermostat. You can predict outcomes and see where paths may lead. You are a good scout and a guide to others. Be careful of your dreams. Your sight penetrates the veil that hides the truth from mankind.

  4. I agree. Absolutely BRILLIANT! Well done, Sara. :)
  5. I haven't read Magical Herbalism by Scott Cunningham, but I had heard good things about it... to each their own I suppose. When it comes to the subject I really like Witchcraft Medicine: Healing Arts, Shamanic Practices, and Forbidden Plants. :)
  6. Currently reading Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter by A E Moorat and The Way of Wyrd by Brian Bates. Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom: A Book of Tarot by Rachel Pollack and Energy Essentials for Witches and Spellcasters by Mya Om are on their way from Amazon... and I'm getting antsy...
  7. I've been considering how I would respond to this topic for a while now. My husband and I do not share the same beliefs. I was raised Church of Christ, but my mother was very open to the concept of everyone choosing their own faith and belief structure as it suits them. As such, I left the church at a young age and have done my own thing since. My husband, on the other hand, was raised by a Catholic father and a lip service Methodist mother. While his mother was not really involved, his father put a lot of pressure on him (read: brainwashing) from a young age. When he was fifteen, he was introduced to a new friend who was of a different faith than Catholicism, which made him start to question things and realize there are other beliefs out there, which angered his father to no end. How DARE other people expose his son to religion and beliefs other than what he has spent the last fifteen years indoctrinating in him... Why do I bring this up? My husband, almost two decades later, is relatively open to all beliefs, though he does poke fun at my "witchy stuff." After all, he knew what I was when we met, and wouldn't have married me if he actually cared. He still gives lip service to Catholicism, but that honestly has more to do with not wanting to anger/disappoint his father. In fact, his father is a MAJOR bone of contention in our marriage due to the subject of religion and how we are raising our daughter. "I know Sarah doesn't believe what WE believe, but you need to raise your daughter the right way.." is something he hears on a pretty regular basis. (As far as he knows, I'm just agnostic. If he found out that I practice witchcraft, I worry that he would honestly try to have my daughter taken away, regardless of my husband's feelings on it.) We've had serious talks of sending our daughter to the local Christian private school to serve two purposes, 1. The public schools around here are absolutely horrible, and 2. to get his father off our backs. I would just prefer to move. I didn't think too much about it - after all, I was raised Christian, and I turned out semi okay ;) - so I was content to go along with this plan... That is until SOMEONE made me start thinking about it... I'm completely of agreement, I just honestly don't know how to assert myself in a way that won't result in my husband and I alienating my in laws.. or worse.. They just bought a cabin in Tennessee. I wouldn't mind if they just up and moved there. Then I wouldn't HAVE this problem... Hmm.. That makes me think...
  8. This is a big one with me. Regarding witchcraft and life, I would tell myself that I should like who I am on my own. If I could do that, I'd realize that I don't need those other people telling me how to do things, and making me feel in the wrong because I happen to disagree. "Be your own self." Also, I would have to tell myself to SLOW DOWN. You don't need to know everything right away, and in fact, there's a good reason you don't. It's called learning. The journey is more important than the destination.
  9. Somewhere in a large rubbermaid tub in my parent's attic you'll find both To Ride a Silver Broomstick by Silver Ravenwolf and Celtic Myth and Magick by Edain McCoy...
