Re: Witchcraft is Witchcraft and Wicca is Wicca

I agree with you on the Witchcraft and Wicca counts, but on the Christian Wiccan counts - I believe in Jesus, I believe that he was the son of a God, and really THAT is what makes a Christian, not the dogmatic church. (I am also undoubtedly Wiccan). Besides, most of the Christian celebrations are de...

Re: once again...stupid love

Where are you from, Nature? At least where I am, the age of consent is 16, but that means you need parental/guardian consent or both parties need to be over 18. Of course it may be different where you live.

Re: New Witch: Is My Spell Working?

Well, what was your intent when you cast the spell? I've always found that very seemingly small differences make all the difference. Were you casting a spell for you to fall in love, or to find one who loves you? I know personally, I have to be really careful about phrasing because whatever piece of...

Re: once again...stupid love

I agree with Firebird, continue being friends until you're 18. Take it slow, if it is meant to be, then it will work. I know the waiting isn't pleasant, but it's safer legality-wise. I've got friends who are currently 60 and 40 and happily married, she met him when she was only 16 and he was 36 and ...

Re: too many Sci'Fi's?

Is it weird that I know exactly the kind of sound you mean? I feel like I hear that a lot, always when I'm by myself and I never know what it is and tend to either forget about it, or decide I was hearing things!

Re: Samhain

Unfortunately, my family tree is very ... vague. I'm only third generation in the US from a country/tribe in the Carpathian Mountains that doesn't exist anymore on my mother's side, and my dad's family is hard to track without a place to start from and with a last name like "Bounds," there's a milli...

Re: Non-wiccan

I definitely have a lot of Wiccan roots in my beliefs, but I call myself "Pagan," because so much of the Wiccan stuff seems like fluff or just plain stuffy, and I believe that religion should be neither of these things. While "Pagan" isn't exactly accurate either, it's easier than talking about all ...

Re: Tarot decks you recommend

My two favorite decks are the Universal Goddess Tarot (which is actually the one I learned on) and the Gateway to the Divine Tarot. On both, I find the symbolism very easy to read, even if I don't know the "traditional" meaning of the card.

Re: How to discover a gift?

I think that everyone has an ability, but that it's different for everyone when or how it manifests. Just by opening yourself to the desire to find your specific ability makes it more eminent. Personally, I haven't found my specific ability, either, but I spend a lot of time working on divination an...

Re: Samhain

I love, love, love taking the traditions of Dias De Los Muertos and making them a part of my Samhain rituals. One of the Spanish classes I took in college put together a traditional altar. Now I light candles and place skull decorations around photos of those that have moved on. I also makes sure I ...

Re: Just Ask

That's something I've always thanked the priest I grew up with for. He taught me that it was more important to talk to God in our day-to-day and when we need help than to simply talk to Him when we're in church. It was really insightful and became important to me in my spiritual growth. Now I read i...

Re: Your Most Magical Experience

Mine was at this festival called Evolvefest. It's mostly a yoga festival, but there is also music going on all the time. At one of the concerts I was at, one of the men in the audience (an attendee for years), who had had a heart transplant 5 years prior went down. His heart stopped, and he moved on...

Re: Feeling....disconnected.

I always get like this when Mercury's in Retrograde. I've finally wised up and started marking that time in my day calendar so that it stops sneaking up on me. At least that way I can smudge with some sage before and afterwards. For me, when I get into those "funks," I just need to shoulder through ...
