  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I have read several books and have practiced for a few years now.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    From the time I was little my parents allowed (and encouraged) me to explore all beliefs and ideas to make up my own mind about the world and life.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I do not know, although the post called "Traditional Craft by Startella" and the posts I have read so far are very close to my own beliefs/opinions and ways. I might be considered more eclectic than trad...?
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Each person looks different. Each person has had different experiences. Each person copes differently. Each person is unique. Each person uses their own 'tools' both physical and spiritual/craftly in the ways that work best for them.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    I think it's something everyone does to some extent, with or without knowing it. I have been cultivating my own ways, techniques and ideas for a while now.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Feeling that 'pop craft' is not genuine or sincere enough for me.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I expect to get support and ideas, I expect to listen and learn. I hope to be able to bring my own questions and opinions to the table, and to be able to support others in the community if and when I can.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I am a very curious person, and I have good focus.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Overcoming some fears, and every now and then, my focus can slip briefly into obsession, before bouncing back to the mundane world.

  1. The second part makes me wonder ... I know lilacs were traditionally planted over buried babies that passed away. Sometimes small rows of them next to country homes make me sad, since I learned of it. I wonder if that bit about "the lonley infant" is implying that honeysuckles were used the same way??
  2. Sounds to me like these djinn are or could be connected to the emotion of 'shame'. (Bedroom, bathroom, disbelief/faith, prayer, shopping, etc.) Perhaps renewing your own conviction and purpose in life, solidifying your intent and self-knowledge would be good ways to help ward your house and home. Just a thought.
  3. Out of curiosity DG, if you're the one who made it, how did you "notice" a few days later that the eyes were fixed and painted on? Didn't you do this - or did you get someone else to?
  4. Leave 2-3 pages blank in the front of your books - put each entry in a list to form a working table of contents. Write it down, now, even if it's not perfect or in order - you WILL forget what you did or what you added. You will get to know the order things are written into your book as you fill it in and refer back to it. I like that it ends up being almost a string of events and workings that you can go back and look through in the order they happened/you thought of them. :deadhorse: The items you collect yourself are far more useful and 'powerful' than anything you can buy, whether it's the "right" material or not, you picked it up and it has a significance for you. Freeze small samples of blood etc. in empty pill jars and freeze them. Small volumes of these can be very useful on the fly. (Esp if you cut yourself by accident - may as well benefit from it!) Another bump on the burning subject - when burning paper, be prepared for some of it to flake off --while on fire-- and float away... onto your ___________ [floor, curtains, pets, books, etc.], Be ready to put a pot lid over your working surface (non-flammable!), or work near/in a hearth or fire pit. Use a dream catcher made by you. Very useful in dream work, sleep protections etc. I think I have a thread or pictures somewhere on here with mine and instructions. Sums up my life philosophy, including my practices: "Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler." -A. Einstein
  5. This is where I do a lot of my workings when dealing with people I know well; friends and family. I find that enchantments need to have even more focus than what I would call a 'spell', as they are something deeper. One is working with the world and people, the other feels more intimate. (I think that came out right.... it's late. Did that makes sense?)
  6. Ditto. I find that for me, violins and saxophones have more of a tendency than other instruments to get right up there into my nerves. Because I am prone to over-emote, I have to choose my melodies carefully, or I will put myself into some bad moods. But, I love music; one of my friends calls me her personal walking radio. I will listen to anything, as long as it's quality music of its genre. I'd like to try drumming, hippy as that may sound...
  7. sounds lovely, thanks for sharing your journey :)
  8. Me, too. I returned my RW deck almost immediately - couldn't get into it the way I got into my Thoth deck... I felt unfaithful. I've always pronounced it "Toth", rhyming with moth... not sure if that was just impulse or I heard it somewhere like that, though.
  9. http://www.youtube.com/user/coheedandcambriaVEVO#p/u/8/oFObU6-qN_k Oh, yes. Coheed and Cambria. I went there. <3 ..."and when the answer that you want, is in the question that you state"...
  10. WR, bloody mary? I prefer a good ceasar made with gin. :D I love my divacup for that reason. I use an old pill vial to collect and freeze it. My SO knows that anything in a pill vial around our place is probably best left untouched! lol I have a ton of embroidery floss at home... *wheels are turning....*
  11. Evy, it's beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Mortality is tricky... just when you think you've got your mind wrapped around it, it slips away again. I think your piece has captured a very peaceful soul.
  12. I've always wanted to make a simple syrup or lemon syrup for drinks in the summer, and perhaps midsummer would be a very appropriate time to whip some up for drinks and offerings. Let us know how it pans out, M.
