    Right now, Craft is all I think about... beach, music, gardening, cooking, astrology, writing
  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Waaay more than I thought I was.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Yes -- Christianity, being born into it but never belonged to it.
    I've encountered some New Age people, Shamans and alike.
    I have a profound respect for Healers.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    No, I have not. But I am drawn here.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Great question. It means no fluff, no padding. Perhaps I'm drawn to it because it's old, tried and true. I have the freedom to explore Trad and practice as I see fit.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    The more I learn about Witchcraft, the more I realize that I've been doing this my entire life.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Looking at different types of Witchcraft, just being drawn to this... compelled, actually.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to learn more about Traditional Witchcraft and to broaden my path.
    To share my experiences, questions, insights and maybe some humor, too.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No, I do not.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Spirits. Spirits. Spirits. Did I mention spirits?
    I have very strong visualization skills that manifest well.
    I have a way of 'knowing' without former knowledge or advanced training
    (which only validates what I know)
    I've got good instincts when it comes to Crafting.
    I love, love, love my spells.
    I can drag a secret to my grave.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Tarot... I just don't feel it. I've had some great readings, so I know Tarot works quite well in capable hands.
  • Additional Information.
    I enjoy a friendly exchange of experience and ideas with open-minded people who have manners and genuine curiosity and love of the Craft.

  1. Well, since it's well past July... I must say I did not enjoy this series. Although the rare parts that featured Santa Muerte were good, this wasn't anywhere as witchy as the original Penny Dreadful. In general the characters failed to move me. Natalie Dorman's acting as she portrayed several different roles left me feeling so-so overall. I was disappointed.
  2. Hello Everyone :) So, tonight we are getting another Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. Showtime Series Premiere: Sunday, March 26, 2020 at 10 P.M. ET/PT Set 50 years after the first Penny Dreadful, this supernatural 10 part spin-off series created and written by John Logan. "1938 Los Angeles is a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega and his partner Lewis Michener become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city's first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart." The characters are connected in conflict to the deity, Santa Muete, while others are allied with the Devil. Cultural divides and political ambitions seem to the tinder that Chaos ignites. From what I can see, it seems to focus on pulp religion rather than pulp fiction. I can only hope ‘City of Angels’ doesn’t make light of rich cultural folklore and traditional practices. Staring: Natalei Dormer, Lorena Izzo, Rory Kinner, Nathan Lane, Amy Madigan, Daniel Zorvotto. Adriana Barraza, Kerry Bisho, Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly) and too many other actors to list - which concerns me. There may be too much going for a cohesive narrative to emerge in 10 episodes. ​Personally, I enjoy Natalie Dormer on screen. It will be interesting to see how City of Angels play out.
  3. Stupid questions time: Wouldn't the programmed fetch still have the fingerprints of the Creator? Is it realistic to attempt to 'get around' yourself without doing the work to overcome what hinders 'you' in the first place?
  4. This is such an interesting subject to me. I do ZERO cards, divination and such. I really don't see the point of it. Since the future isn't set in stone, there are too many variables that ripple and shift outcomes. It seems like a fool's errand to me. If I get a 'message' or vision of a future event, I pay attention. Don't go looking for it, though. I do like what NorthernPilgrim said about 'blind spots' -- that's something you can work with now. Madame, you ask some deep ass questions. Questions I've pondered about my craft, too. Sometimes it's ancestors, sometimes it's Spirit, sometimes it's a guardian, sometimes it's me, sometimes it's luck. The challenge for me was learning how to differentiate between ancestors, Spirit, guardians, my own ability, or dumb luck... Cuz I get pings from all angles.
  5. Did I know I'd call myself a witch? HELL NO !!! I seriously thought witchcraft was just silly, hocus-pocus nonsense. Halloween costume stuff. I KNEW I was different by age 4. As I grew, so did my abilities. I came to witchcraft very late in my life --- and it was then I realized, I had always been a witch.... and had done witchcraft without 'knowing' it WAS indeed witchcraft. Who wudda thunk it? I sure as hell didn't see that coming.
  6. ^^ Nice. I just had this exact conversation with another witch tonight. I think a Witch's power comes from with in. When she/he can also open up to receive outside power ( like a conduit) and is able direct that current towards a target / goal, that's pretty cool, too. And, as Witches don't we 'empower' objects all the time? When we aren't blowing them up, that is :)
  7. Aint' that the truth !!! LMAO
  8. I don't confuse MY Path with Practice. Walking Path is solitary (and where my Practice takes shape) It's not easy to be odd-girl out in the mundane society. Having other Witches in my life helps a lot. I love what other witches bring to the table. What they do and how they view craft allows me to explore the deeper parts of myself - which enhances my Practice. Knowing that I'm not *alone* is priceless.
  9. Hey Kalinia, maybe the spiders are a 'sign'.
  10. I haven't a clue if past lives are real... but phobia is - for those who suffer with it. Regardless of its origin...What a roadblock it must be. Especially for witches. And, even more so if the phobia interferes with ones practice / magical development. Where does a witch draw-the-line and take control of his/her mind and emotions? And, how might one strive to overcome their irrational fears?
  11. That's fantastic, Belle. Thank you so very much !!! Hey RF.... I'm sorry that my excitement and curiosity stomped on your thread. Blending the two Arts is fun to explore, for me anyway. Thanks Again and Sorry Again...lol
  12. OH, Belle.... I love that link/article !!! It makes perfect sense and I can literally see how and why synthesis is necessary. Thanks for that. I also LOVE the mandala imagery, too !!! Please bear with me - as I try to synthesize this myself: - So, once someone's natal chart is synthesized, then you tailor make a spell to 'correct' the energy for that person - at THAT exact moment in time? ( I'd use the term 'balance' or 'counterbalance' instead of 'correct'... but that's my WC lingo shining through.) Same idea, different words. -With just a Sun sign / Age: Are those two bits of info enough to 'construct' a natal chart accurate enough to 'correct' their specific RT problem ? And, to craft a specific planetary energy based spell? OR it's more like - The SKY is like this right now, You're a Virgo, and pretty much (financially) screwed for the next 3 years, type thing? Cuz, I'm thinking ... (forgive my ignorance) if I hadn't a clue what their Second house looked like, or that it contained something like Pisces and lots of it (gods forbid...lol) how would one go about crafting a suitable spell to 'correct' this longstanding (past, present, future) issue? <---- more rhetorical, but if there's a practical Astrological answer, lay it on me !!
  13. I’ve always enjoyed astrology… it’s like a guilty pleasure, hobby of mine and I’m always learning more about it. Once beyond the basics, it’s a terrifically intricate area study an useful addition one’s magical toolbox. I’ve got a few questions: @Belle: The way I use astrology for magic is not for timing but for reading the energy. Which energy? Personal or Planetary energy ? Or Both? If I have someones chart then I can see, feel, and sense the energy, as a map of the psyche. Psyche or Personality ? If there is a problem with the chart What kind of ‘problems’ could a chart have?or with the person...lol… people can have LOTS of problems beyond their scope of their chart… then I can manipulate the energy. Which energy? The chart's energy? person’s energy or the planets energy? Some people use blood or hair or DNA in their spells, but if I have the map, so is it fair to say you uses someone’s chart as Tag Lock? that is the key to the kingdom. It works best if I have an accurate chart but even having a basic idea of where the planets are is enough. In real time or at the time of the person’s birth? So if I know a person's age and sunsign, that's adequate.Adequate enough for what? What does ‘synthesizing’ a chart mean? Thanks in advance for enlightening me
  14. @ OP There are several threads that explore Excess Energy, as a few witches experience overloads... but such threads aren't DO THIS that will address your issue or fix it. And crows... there's a ton of info on crows. Do a Search and you'll see. Unless I'm mistaken, your concerns don't seem to belong in this thread. This topic is a more REFLECTIVE thread, not a Help Me thread. Perhaps the Mods can move the last 5 or 6 posts? Learning your way TW around takes time.
