  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I have been a solitary witch for about 7 years.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I was Christian for most of my life, but I didn't feel comfortable. I have explored Buddhism for several years, and continue to include elements of it in my life. I also briefly looked into Druidry, but wasn't ultimately interested.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Since being here, I have begun working with ancestors. I am also researching into thought-forms.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Addressing all aspects of the craft; learning from others; exploring parts of self that have been ignored, repressed; discarding definitions like "good" and "bad," "light" and "dark;" pushing beyond perceived personal limits; discovering and embracing and strengthening connections to more than what the physical realm displays. Cutting through the bullshit.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    7 years
  • What brought you to our site?
    I was researching paths of witchcraft, looking for something that is real and powerful.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to learn about new perspectives about the craft, different directions I can explore.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Not really.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Willingness to explore and experience. I have a strong intuitive nature and I am working to strengthen other areas. I'm also dedicated to my craft.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Short attention span and impatience. Not a lot of "book" knowledge, especially about the more esoteric stuff.

  1. Happy birthday!

    re: Aurelian, it might be that the baser, nastier emotions are stronger, more primal and visceral, so they pack a harder punch than, say, contentment. Being able to empathize with someone as opposed to, as you say, actually experiencing their emotions. I would imagine being inundated by others' emotions would make one into a cold-hearted bitch simply for survival.
  3. Like the prodigal child coming home...

    1. Kupala


      Welcome back! (This is Kupala)

    2. Solanaceae


      Nice to see you back!

    3. Aurelian


      Been a while! Welcome back :)

  4. I use runes in divination and certain ones as charms on my altar. I don't have a ritual per se. I like the idea of blooding the runes as a sacrifice and as a connection to yourself. My favorite rune is probably Ansuz. As a sidenote, has anyone any experience with Ogham fews?
  5. Dear weather, please send some of that cold out here...I really don't want to start relying on the AC in F-in February...

  6. I must have mischievous brownies in my apartment. I was looking for the stereo remote and when I finished cleaning, I found it on the table in front of me.

      I must have food on my mind. I only saw the brownies at first, and my mouth started watering, lol.

      Big grin at Gramayr. LOL!

  8. Time to stop a stalker. No one messes with my family, even on the internet.

  9. Dropping off for a while. See you all again soon.

    1. Michele


      Off where? Off the forum, off the planet, off to bed???

  10. 2013 will be better than 2012. I deem it so.

  11. Moth balls to keep the interloping neighborhood felines off our patio?

      Lol Michele. You should see how Scout (our grumpy Tortie) takes on any other creature in the vicinity. Especially the local German Shepherd.

      I cant help getting all nostalgic when i hear proper carols. We have the school children doing a carol service at work tomorrow I will be a blubbering mess if they start singing Little Donkey. I love them


    3. Aurelian


      We had some carolers come round...made my night, was very very cool.

    4. thevioletsunflower


      Love them! Like M and Aloe I listen to them all year. But I like the old school ones. O Holy Night is one of my favorite songs, ever.

  13. 279 words do not an essay make. Especially a literary analysis. *snarl*

    1. anjeaunot


      Could the student spell literary analysis?

    2. Abhainn


      Yes. Just pretty much lazy.

      What'd the MRI show?

    2. ejfinch


      Hoping for the best for you!

    3. Abhainn


      have to wait for the surgeon appt to see what the MRI shows...Dave's not familiar enough with MRIs to interpret.

  15. Has been pointedly told "It's Merry Christmas" when I wished said person Happy Holidays. Felt like replying "Oh, sorry. Go to hell."

    3. Jevne


      I agree, Aloe.

    4. Abhainn


      Quite tired of the whole pseudo-battle, really. Kind of ruins the spirit of the season. Bah Humbug indeed.
