  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    From the few resources I've found, I am aware it is a practice and not a religion, that it is a reconstruction of pre-Celtic British practices, and that no two Trad Crafters hold the exact same beliefs or practice in the same way.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I was raised in the Episcopal Church, and although I have nothing against it, I found it wasn't for me in the end. Like many people, I turned to Wicca; I found it was incredibly limiting and restrictive, for a group of people claiming to be more open and accepting than Christians.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I'm not 100% sure yet what you would consider to be Traditional Witchcraft; I've cast a few spells in my time, including sigils. To date, they have always been effective. Maybe this doesn't count, but in the past, I have silently wished things on people that have frequently manifested in the physical world.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    To me, Traditional Witchcraft is connecting to nature, the spirits, and to an integral part of yourself. It means bringing out your innate abilities and creating what you desire. It could be through an actual spell, or it could be astral travel, meditation, or some other form of exploration. Or it could be as everyday as cooking or crafting something meaningful. Or even through deliberate thought.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Ever since I was a teenager-- when my spells started to work, I got kinda freaked out and took a hiatus from witchcraft. I went back to dabbling in my twenties. So 15-20 years, on and off.
  • What brought you to our site?
    It's the only site I've found so far that doesn't seem fake or superficial. No neopagan fluff here.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to get ideas and inspiration as well as a little direction. I plan to contribute my own ideas, interpretations, and thoughts on witchcraft.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    I've received articles and weekly updates from Blue Moon Manor. I used to belong to a Wiccan site, but I've long since unsubscribed.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I think mine is the power behind my intent-- when I desire to manifest something, the full extent of my passion and life force goes behind it.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    My lack of knowledge, both regarding spells and resources.

  1. Happy it's nighttime... it's cooler outside and no bright sun to give me migraines

  2. Good question-- the abundance of and ease of access to information online has definitely made an impact on my craft and how I have grown as a Witch. Even so, I think I would still have ended up as one without it. To be fair, my gran instilled in me basic knowledge in witchcraft from early on-- we used to read runes and tarot, we would contact spirits, and she would tell me about various spells, so I would have had some source of knowledge there even without the internet. But even without that background, I think I still would have found my way. I think if you are drawn to a certain path, you will go to whatever lengths necessary to pursue it. And as others have pointed out in this thread, nature and spirits are invaluable as guides and sources of inspiration.
  3. Lovely work as usual, Onyx... I love the wand, even if it didn't come out the way you had planned 🙂 Funny how that happens in art!
  4. Holdasown and Lauvitra, your pieces are really beautiful! The detail and the texture are so cool. My mom had a large table loom when I was a kid and I used to love weaving on it. Sadly, I don't think she has it anymore.
  5. Thanks Onyx! And yes, totally agree with you about art-- it IS like a sigil in that it brings ideas to life. Very cool concept 😄
  6. Thanks Onyx! Yeah my gran says she wears it a lot LOL
  7. All of this has been jewelry for family members-- the first one is a bracelet I made for my gran with resin; I was trying to imitate opal, since that is her favorite stone, but I think it looks more like dichroic glass. Either way, she loves it! The second two are bracelets I made for my cousins; different metals and charms on each because they are completely different people. The fourth and sixth pics are a bracelet I made for my sis (me modeling it in the fourth one lol). I added a Virgo charm because my sis is The Definitive Virgo haha. The fifth image is a necklace and earrings set I also made for my sis. Would love to get feedback!
  8. It's too early and I need more coffee LOL

  9. I have a large. thick black 3-ring notebook with removable pages (and pages that can be added) that I use as my grimoire for recording spellwork (including the outcomes, when I remember to add them), calendars for lunar phases, recipes, notes on herbs and oils, astrological info, how to do various tarot spreads, how to make various talismans, etc. I keep select artwork in there as well, since art is a big part of who I am. I also have a much smaller notebook for recording tarot readings. I've decided that, in addition, I'm going to start a dream journal-- I've been having a lot of very vivid dreams lately, and while I don't yet know if they are premonitions, I do feel that they are trying to tell me something. I always remember my dreams-- especially the really hilarious ones-- so I think this would be a good exercise to incorporate into my practice.
  10. Very interesting site! I will peruse it in more depth as time allows.
  11. I would love to live in the country, or in a small town... I would have more space to myself and greater ability to get in touch with nature. I'm not saying it's impossible where I live, but it is a lot harder here in Denver than it used to be, as developers have been permitted to run rampant and open spaces are disappearing rapidly. I'm considering moving to Montana or at least Wyoming within the next few years. But to get back to your post, I can definitely agree that it is very draining to live in a city, because I absorb other people's energies all the time. Methinks a spell for shielding myself is in order one of these days.
  12. Being in nature. Does it for me every time.
