About Capsicum

  • Birthday October 24

Converted

  • Gender
    Canine
  • Location
    Alaska
  • Interests
    Botany, heavy metal, hunting, blacksmithing, survivalism, inventing, geometry
  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I read a lot. I learned a bit of Craft over the last ten years from various friends and relationships. Some is passed to me from family members.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I'm a protestant apostate. I have been nonreligious for more than half of my life, although I am rather familiar with the left-hand path. I am a deist.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I make tinctures on a regular basis, make my own candles, stone/bone placements in the forest, hunting and gardening rituals, also have had some experiences with summonings in the past.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    I wasn't sure what to call it before I read the description on this site to be honest. Nature and the spirit world isn't all rainbows and happy gnomes dancing in moonlight, it's full of predators, toxins, darkness and hatred as well. Balance is key. Seasons change. That which is a nurturing caretaker of fruit and flora during the warmth and life of summer becomes the most savage and insidious ambush predator in the dead forest during the cold and desolate days of Winter.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Formally since 2002, probably longer than that though
  • What brought you to our site?
    Search hit on Mandragora autumnalis.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I would like to learn more about purpose in a ritual, ingredients, and just an overall better understanding of activities different from my own.

    What can I contribute? I specialize in growing nightshades and am also quite good at identifying wild herbs for various uses. I use winter rituals and spirit work in hunting techniques. I can also trade seeds, I don't know if that is something that happens often on here.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Patience.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Patience.
  • Additional Information.
    black/thrash/grind freak.

  1. some brief thoughts: Consider that even though we are still "spelling" words using text messages, texting and email itself has reduced a lot of peoples need to speak aloud as phone calls become less common...perhaps taking us back down to the level we needed when there were no phones and population was smaller. Those who speak less tend to already think about what they say, or what they will say when something comes up. People have to look inward as there are fewer people to talk to face to face in light of worldwide social distancing and having to look at themselves more than they ever had...and this is producing mixed results, look at all the miserable celebrities right now haha to be fair, I will talk anyone's ear off who will listen...I am a person with a lot of stories about my crazy ass life, and I have a natural talent for public speaking, rather strange assets to have for someone who just wants to be a hermit XD
  2. All those years drawing sigils on TP, if I had only known the error of my ways.

  3. I blend in pretty nicely without anyone prying too much. I've lived in a lot of places and my level of openness about my spiritual beliefs varies depending on how safe it seems to me. Witches are still persecuted, occult information is always being censored, and historical truths give people cognitive dissonance. Nothing will probably ever change this, and "forced morality" based on religion, or a lack thereof, is always a tyranny that can be just around the corner. I have no doubts that the local church congregations would love to lock me up in a mental ward or worse just for the various blasphemies I commit every day, thankfully it's none of their damn business what I'm doing.
  4. Melechesh - "Ghouls of Nineveh" also, going through to clean up the dead vid links in this thread.
  5. Somehow, I have acquired a pet. I like plants much better than animals, mind you, but he's not so bad. He'll probably outlive me.

      What sort of pet? You say he will outlive you, so I'm going to guess, Tortoise?

      He's an African parrot, his species can live to be 60+ in the wild and older than humans in captivity.

      I think Parrots can live into their 90's

  6. Perhaps it's worth noting that one of the oldest deciphered texts in the world, the Code of Hammurabi, specifically prohibits sorcery*. It is a Babylonian law code etched in Akkadian cuneiform. Mostly the law codes cover civil property disputes and marriage law, so it is largely uninteresting from an occult standpoint...however, it specifically prohibits sorcery. It seems that witchcraft has been frowned upon by various civilizations during all of known history, but obviously this is going to vary from culture to culture. Maybe civilization as we know it is at odds with witchcraft. In order to clearly see the entire issue, i find it's better to look beyond the small scope of what medieval European history can offer. Under the medieval church, witchcraft was certainly persecuted...but so were traditional European beliefs in general. It spills over into the Northern Crusades and even the Spanish conquest of the New World. The Christian armies were eradicating belief systems in the name of their god, not necessarily persecuting individuals as witches. Finding the witch is someone else's job, and serves a different purpose than mass religious conversion. *I am likely to use the words "sorcery" and "witchcraft" interchangeably, many others do not...and in the case of the Code of Hammurabi...the translation to a single English word from a language that hasn't been spoken in thousands of years it probably shouldn't matter
  7. I feed ravens lol Note: edited this thread to clean up many deleted images/broken links, tried to preserve topics
  8. Interesting that I never replied to this thread before...I often feel that I am a beacon for all types of wild things and people. Homeless people, the mentally ill, spirits, animals, to name a few. I don't know that "witch radar" is what it really is, but other people who are sensitive or damaged can certainly pick me out in a crowd. I dress like a normie most of the time so it makes no sense whatsoever so I typically just let them know I can see them in some way. I have no real way of describing it other than I have to hide more than just my clothing and hair style if I do not want to be noticed.
  9. The magpies, ravens, and other scavengers all know my pickup at work. They land right on the hood to see if I'll give them something. There's a raven the size of a cat I'll see sometimes when I work Saturdays; she lands on my truck so hard I can feel it shake. Unfortunately the city could fine me if they found out i was feeding them *shrug* I'm pretty sure ordinances like that date back to King James. *thinks* One of the guys calls them my pets, asked me if I was bringing them from home. I'm sure he was joking but they're a gossipy religious bunch and I have to wonder sometimes if they're serious. gulls can piss off though lol they're gone in Winter I should try to get some pictures :party9:
  10. Loneliness is a bad habit that offers the reward of peace of mind.

      Definitely easier than dealing with other people's shit, oi

  11. What about manure? Dog poop? Just throwing it out there because that scent also reminds me the smell of cadaverine. I've used it as forms of protection before, man's best friend keeps all sorts of things at bay in more ways than one.
  12. They have a "heat advisory" here because it's gonna be 80ºF(27ºC) tomorrow. LOL

      If you go outside you will burst into flames, tread carefully XD

  13. The method is familiar to me when I build a piece of furniture or do work in my garden. Playing music and dancing can have minds of their own, twisting us to their will, no doubt. When the rhythm takes over and the guitar plays itself through your fingers
  14. Found a piece of driftwood the other day that looked like a human heart, thought it was appropriate

      Nice find, Caps!!!

       

      What will you do with it?

  15. Keeping it simple this year mostly a lot of beans, kale, carrots, cabbage, and spinach but I do have an old datura plant, a couple of second year wormwood plants and a few pepper plants
