Hello, I am Witch33. Welcome to my site on Witchcraft. This site is from the seasoned Witch to the beginner and you'll find in depth information here to help guide you along. I hope you return often as I'm usually updating as I also learn.



The matricial period

THIS DATES BACK TO THE MATRICIAL PERIOD WHERE WOMEN RULED SUCH AS WE STILL SEE ONE PROMINATE EXAMPLE OF THIS TODAY WITH THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND. THE SPELLING WAS HERSTORY TO REFLECT THE FEMININE RULE.

WHEN CHRISTIANITY CAME INTO POWER WE SAW AN EXCHANGE OF THE RULE FROM THE FEMININE TO THE MASCULINE AND SO IT BECAME A PARTICIAL SOCIETY AND WOMEN LOST THERE DOMINATE STATUS AND SO THE WORD CHANGED NOW TO " HISTROY".



WITCHCRAFT IS A RELIGION BASED ON THE WORSHIP OF THE BOUNTY OF THE SEASONAL CHANGES THROUGH THE GODDESS AND GODS. MANY WORSHIP OUT SIDE IN NATURE WITH SONG AND DANCE.

SOME MIGHT PERHAPS SAY WITCHCRAFT ISN'T A RELIGION BUT RATHER A SPIRITUAL PATH THEY HAVE TAKEN.

ARE THEY RIGHT? WHAT CONSTITUTES A RELIGION?

ACCORDING TO WIKIPEDIA IT SAYS: A religion is an organized approach to human spirituality which usually encompasses a set of narratives, symbols, beliefs and practices, often with a supernatural or transcendent quality, that give meaning to the practitioner's experiences of life through reference to a higher power or truth.[1] It may be expressed through prayer, ritual, meditation, music and art, among other things. It may focus on specific supernatural, metaphysical, and moral claims about reality (the cosmos, and human nature) which may yield a set of religious laws, ethics, and a particular lifestyle. Religion also encompasses ancestral or cultural traditions, writings, history, and mythology, as well as personal faith and religious experience. The term "religion" refers to both the personal practices related to communal faith and to group rituals and communication stemming from shared conviction. "Religion" is sometimes used interchangeably with "faith" or "belief system,"[2] but it is more socially defined than personal convictions, and it entails specific behaviors, respectively. The development of religion has taken many forms in various cultures. It considers psychological and social roots, along with origins and historical development.

ONE MISCONCEPTION IS WE WORSHIP NATURE. NO WE DON'T, WE WORSHIP IN NATURE BUT WORSHIP THE GODDESS AND GODS WHOM HAVE CREATED NATURE AND ARE A PART OF IT AS WE ARE , ALL WORKING TOGETHER IN WHAT WAS TO HAD BEEN A BALANCE BUT HUMANS ABUSED THERE RIGHTS TO LIVE ON MOTHER EARTH AKA GAIA. WE HAVE POISIONED HER WELLS, DUG DEEP INTO HER KORE WHICH HER HEART BEATS OF LIFE AND RAPED HER SEAS. HER TEARS ARE RAIN DROPS TRYING TO RECOVER BUT HUMANS KEEP POLLUTING HER LUNGS, AND SHE'S ABOUT TO SHAKE US ALL OFF LIKE A BAD CASE OF FLEAS.

THE PAGAN RELIGION DATES AS FAR BACK AS THE UPPER PALEOLITHIC TIME WHICH IS THE THIRD AND LAST SUBDIVISION OF THE PALEOLITHIC OR OLD STONE AGE AS IT IS UNDERSTOOD IN EUROPE, AFRICA AND ASIA. VERY BROADLY IT DATES TO BETWEEN 40,000 AND 10,000 YEARS AGO AND WHERE OUR FIRST WORKING TOOLS CAME FROM AND ALSO THE 1ST SIGN OF THE PAGAN RELIGION WERE FOUND FOLLOWED BY THE MESOLITHIC PERIOD AND FINALLY THE NEOLITHIC PERIOD. THIS MAKES WITCHCRAFT THE OLDEST RELIGION IN THE WORLD.

WITCHCRAFT OR THE PAGAN RELIGION WAS THE OFFICIAL RELIGION OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE UNTIL THE DEATH OF THE LAST PAGAN EMPEROR, JULIAN IN THE YEAR OF 326 C.E.

THE WORD "PAGAN" IS AN UMBERELLA TERM TO INCORPERATE ANY OTHER RELIGION OR BODY OF RELIGIOUS PRACTICES OUT SIDE OF MAIN STREAM CHRISTIANITY. SOME FOR INSTANCE WOULD BE WITCHCRAFT, BUDDISM, TRADITIONISTS, HINDUISM,ETC.

THE WORD " PAGANUS" COMES FROM THE LATIN WORD MEANING COUNTRY DWELLER AND THE WORD " HEATHEN" MEANS RURAL AREA OR VILLAGE.

THE WORD " WICCAN" PLURAL NOW USED AS AN ADJECTIVE FOR FOLLOWERS OF THE NEO-PAGAN MOVEMENT OF WITCHCRAFT AND ALSO MEANS TO PRACTICE SORCERY/ WITCHCRAFT. IT DOES NOT MEAN ANY SPECIFIC TRADITION OR PANTHEON.

THE WORD" WITCH" IN MODERN ENGLISH COMES FROM THE MIDDLE ENGLISH WYCCHE FROM THE OLD ENGLISH" WICCE' MEANING FEMINE WHILE " WICCA" MEANS MASCULINE.

WITCH

O.E. wicce "female magician, sorceress," in later use esp. "a woman supposed to have dealings with the devil or evil spirits and to be able by their cooperation to perform supernatural acts," fem. of O.E. wicca "sorcerer, wizard, man who practices witchcraft or magic," from verb wiccian "to practice witchcraft" (cf. Low Ger. wikken, wicken "to use witchcraft," wikker, wicker "soothsayer"). OED says of uncertain origin. Klein suggests connection with O.E. wigle "divination," and wig, wih "idol." Watkins says the nouns represent a P.Gmc. *wikkjaz "necromancer" (one who wakes the dead), from PIE *weg-yo-, from *weg- "to be strong, be lively." That wicce once had a more specific sense than the later general one of "female magician, sorceress" perhaps is suggested by the presence of other words in O.E. describing more specific kinds of magical craft. In the Laws of (c.890), witchcraft was specifically singled out as a woman's craft, whose practitioners were not to be suffered to live among the W. Saxons

The other two words combined with it here are gealdricge, a woman who practices "incantations, and healing are called "female wizard, woman magician," from a root meaning "phantom, evil spirit." Another word that appears in the Anglo-Saxon laws is wizard, sorcerer," but with suggestions of skill in the use of drugs, since the root of the word is lybb "drug, poison, charm." Lybbestre was a fem. word meaning "sorceress," and lybcorn was the name of a certain medicinal seed (perhaps wild saffron). Weekly notes possible connection to Gothic weihs "holy" and Ger. weihan "consecrate," and writes, "the priests of a suppressed religion naturally become magicians to its successors or opponents." In Anglo-Saxon glossaries, wicca renders L. augur (c.1100), and wicce stands for "pythoness, divinatricem." In the "Three Kings of Cologne" (c.1400) wicca translates Magi: " paynyms ... cleped , kyngis Magos, at is to say wicchis." The glossary translates L. necromantia ("demonum invocatio") with galdre, wiccecraft. The Anglo-Saxon poem called "Men's Crafts" has wiccraft, which appears to be the same word, and by its context means "skill with horses." In a c.1250 translation of "Exodus," witches is used of the Egyptian midwives who save the newborn sons of the Hebrews: "the wicches hidden them for, Biforen pharaun nolden he ben." Witch in ref. to a man survived in dialect into 20c., but the fem. form was so dominant by 1601 that men-witches or he-witch began to be used. Extended sense of "young woman or girl of bewitching aspect or manners" is first recorded 1740. Witch doctor is from 1718; applied to African magicians from 1836. "At this day it is indifferent to say in the English tongue, 'she is a witch,' or 'she is a wise woman. 1541, probably from O.E. wice "wych-elm" (from wican "to bend").




WITCHCRAFT

O.E. wiccecraft, from wicce (see witch) + craft "power, skill" (see craft). Witchcraft was first declared a crime in Eng. law in 1542; trials there peaked in 1580s and 1640s but fell sharply after 1660. The last, in 1717, ended in acquittal. The Witchcraft Act was repealed 1736.

Wicca
An O.E. masc. noun meaning "male witch," curiously taken by Gerald Gardner's followers (c.1954) as an abstract noun meaning "witchcraft" and thus becoming the title of a modern pagan movement.

OBEAH
"sorcery, witchcraft" among blacks in Africa and the W.Indies, 1760, from a W. African word, cf. Efik (southern Nigeria) ubio "a thing or mixture left as a charm to cause sickness or death," Twi ebayifo "witch, wizard, sorcerer.

PYTHONESS

1375, "woman with the power of soothsaying," from O.Fr. phitonise (13c.), from L.L. pythonissa, used in Vulgate of the Witch of Endor (I Sam. xxviii. 7), and often treated as her proper name, lit. fem. of pytho "familiar spirit;" which ultimately is connected with the title of the prophetess of the Delphic Oracle, Gk. pythia hiereia, from Pythios, an epithet of Apollo, from Pytho, older name of the region of Delphi.

WIZARD
c.1440, "philosopher, sage," from M.E. wys "wise" (see wise (adj.)) + -ard. Cf. Lith. zynyste "magic," zynys "sorcerer," zyne "witch," all from zinoti "to know." The ground sense is perhaps "to know the future." The meaning "one with magical power" did not emerge distinctly until c.1550, the distinction between philosophy and magic being blurred in the Middle Ages. As a slang word meaning "excellent" it is recorded from 1922.

HAG

c.1225, shortening of O.E. hagtesse "witch, fury" (on assumption that -tesse was a suffix), from P.Gmc. *hagatusjon-, of unknown origin. Similar shortening derived Du. heks, Ger. Hexe "witch" from cognate M.Du. haghetisse, O.H.G. hagzusa. First element is probably cognate with O.E. haga "enclosure" . O.N. had tunrila and O.H.G. zunritha, both lit. "hedge-rider," used of witches and ghosts. Or second element may be connected with Norw. tysja "fairy, crippled woman," Gaul. dusius "demon," Lith. dvasia "spirit," from PIE *dhewes- "to fly about, smoke, be scattered, vanish." One of the magic words for which there is no male form, suggesting its original meaning was close to "diviner, soothsayer," which were always female in northern European paganism, and hagtesse seem at one time to have meant "woman of prophetic and oracular powers" (alfric uses it to render the Gk. "pythoness," the source of the Delphic oracle), a figure greatly feared and respected. Later, the word was used of village wise women. Haga is also the haw- in hawthorn, which is a central plant in northern European pagan religion. There may be several layers of folk-etymology here. If the h�gtesse was once a powerful supernatural woman (in Norse it is an alternate word for Norns, the three weird sisters, the equivalent of the Fates), it may have originally carried the hawthorn sense. Later, when the pagan magic was reduced to local scatterings, it might have had the sense of "hedge-rider," or "she who straddles the hedge," because the hedge was the boundary between the "civilized" world of the village and the wild world beyond. The h�gtesse would have a foot in each reality. Even later, when it meant the local healer and root collector, living in the open and moving from village to village, it may have had the mildly pejorative sense of hedge- in M.E. (hedge-priest, etc.), suggesting an itinerant sleeping under bushes, perhaps. The same word could have contained all three senses before being reduced to its modern one.

BROOM

O.E. broom the common flowering shrub whose twigs were tied together to make a tool for sweeping, from P.Gmc. *broomaz "thorny bush" (cf. Du. braam, Ger. Brombeere "blackberry"), from PIE base *bh(e)rem- "to project, a point." Both the flowers and sweeping with broom twigs were traditionally considered unlucky in May (Suffolk, Sussex, Wiltshire, etc.). The witch's flying broomstick was originally also many other objects (pitchfork, trough, bowl), but the broomstick became the popular image via engravings from a famous Lancashire witch trial of 1612.

WARLOCK

O.E. warloga "traitor, liar, enemy," from war "faith, a compact" (cf. O.H.G. wara "truth," O.N. varar "solemn promise, vow;" see very; cf. also Varangian) + agent noun related to leogan "to lie" (see lie (v.1)). Original primary sense seems to have been "oath-breaker;" given special application to the devil (c.1000), but also used of giants and cannibals. Meaning "one in league with the devil" is recorded from c.1300. Ending in -ck and meaning "male equivalent of witch" (1568) are from Scottish.

REFERANCE FROM THE ETYMOLOGY DICTIONARY


WE WORSHIP THE SEASONAL CHANGES AND GIVE THANKS FOR THE BOUNTY THE GODDESS'S GIVES BIRTH TO AT DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE YEAR. WE HAVE 8 MAJOR SABBATS (SACRED WORSHIP DAYS) THAT WE HAVE RITES ON TO GIVE THANKS AND WORSHIP.
THERE ARE MANY TRADITIONS SUCH AS,HELLENIC, DIANIC, ECLECTIC, TRADITIONIST, ISIS, DRUID, CELTIC, GARDNERIAN, AND MORE TO CHOOSE FROM.
ONE MIGHT NOT BE YOUR PATH, BUT PERHAPS ANOTHER MIGHT BE. RELIGION OR SPIRITUALITY ISN'T AN EXACT SCIENCE SO NO ONES HERE TO JUDGE YOU IF YOUR CANDLE COLOR ISN'T EXACTUALLY RIGHT.
HERE ARE SOME OF OUR DON'TS MANY OF US LIVE BY BUT NOT ALL LIVE BY AND MAYBE THIS WILL CLEAR A FEW MISUNDERSTANDINGS UP ABOUT WHO WE ARE AS PAGAN WORSHIPPERS. I DON'T SPEAK FOR ALL ON THIS PATH BUT ONLY FOR MY SELF AND OTHERS THAT ARE OF LIKE MIND THAT I KNOW. ONLY YOU CAN CHOSE WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIEVE, AND WORSHIP.

1: WE DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD AS IN THE CHRISTIAN GOD NOR CALL OUR SELVES CHRISTIAN PAGANS NOR WORSHIP UNTO THE CHRISTIAN GOD,,, WE ARE A POLYTHEISTIC RELIGION AND THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION IS A MONOTHEISTIC RELIGION.

POLYTHEISTIC MEANS WE WORSHIP MORE THEN ONE GOD AND GODDESS WHILE MONOTHEISTIC MEANS CHRISTIANS AND SOME OTHER CULTURES WORSHIP ONLY ONE GOD.

2.WE DON'T BELIEVE IN HEAVEN NOR HELL AS HEAVEN AND HELL ARE WHAT WE MAKE IT.

3.WE DON'T STEAL FROM CHURCHES

4.WE ARE NOT SATANISTS. WE DON'T BELIEVE IN THE " DEVIL".

5. WE DON'T SACRIFICE ANY ONE NOR ANY THING FOR ANY REASON. LIFE TO A WITCH IS THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT OF ALL.

6. MOST OF THE PAGAN PRACTIONERS I KNOW DO NOT USE BLOOD IN OUR RITUALS. I DO KNOW THAT IN THE GARDNERIAN TRADITION THEY DO USE A FEW DROPS OF BLOOD TAKEN FROM THE PERSON BEING ELEVATED FOR HIS/ HER CORD. I'M NOT GARDNERIAN AND DO NOT USE THIS PRACTICE.

7. WE NEVER BIND OUR WILL UPON ANOTHER NOR MANIPULATE ANOTHER TO COMFORM TO WHAT WE WANT IN USING MAGICK. ALL WORKINGS I DO AND OTHERS I KNOW ARE FREE OF DISCORD, DRAMA AND HATRED. THEY ARE DONE WITH A GREAT DEAL OF THOUGHT AND PRECISE INTENT.

8. MYTH: NO WE DON'T RIDE BROOMS. BACK IN THE MIDDLE AGES PEOPLE USED MANY HERBS IN THERE SOAPS AND OINTMENTS WHICH HAD VERY DANGERIOUS PSYCHEDELIC EFFECTS. THE INGREDIENTS CONSISTED OF: PARSLEY, HEMLOCK(POSINIOUS), WATER OF ACONITE AKA WOLFSBANE ALSO VERY POSINIOUS, POPLAR LEAVES, SOOT, BAT'S BLOOD, DEADLY NIGHTSHADE OR BELLADONNA, HENBANE AND HASHISH. AFTER ALL WAS MIXED TOGETHER IN A LARGE CAULDRON, FAT WAS ADDED AND THEN THE WITCH RUBBED THIS ON HER/ HIS BODY WHICH CAUSED INCREDABLE HALLUCINATIONS, PSYCHIC VISIONS AND ASTRAL PROJECTIONS.

WE DO HAVE RITUAL BROOMS WE CALL BESOMS, AND WE USE IT TO SWEEP CLEAN ANY NEGATIVE ENERGIES IN THE CIRCLE BEFORE WE BEGIN OUR WORK. ALSO A BESOM IS USED FOR A HANDFASTING. WHAT'S A HANDFASTING YOU ASK? EVER HEAR OF JUMPING THE BROOM AFTER A WEDDING OR HANDFASTING?? IT'S A MIDDLE AGE CUSTOM TO ENSURE FERTILITY AND PROSPERITY TO THE COUPLE.

9. THE WICCA MOTO IS " DO AS YE WILL, HARM NONE". I HAVE A SLIGHT PROBLEM WITH THAT CONCEPT BUT LETS LOOK AT THIS STATEMENT CLOSER,, TO HARM NONE ALSO MEANS NOT TO CURSE OUT OTHERS,(ROAD RAGE) NOT TO HAVE A NEGATIVE THOUGHT ABOUT ANY ONE NOR ANY THING, COE WORKERS AND BOSSES, RELATIVES, FAMILY AND FRIENDS OR X- FRIENDS, LOVES AND X- LOVES. REMEMBER WE ARE HUMANS AS WELL, I TRIED THIS BUT I JUST CAN'T DO THIS AND IS TOTALLY UNREALISITIC. TO DO AS YE WILL MEANS TO DO WHAT YOU WANT AS LONG AS IT'S NOT FORCING YOUR WILL OR BINDING THEM IN ANY WAY TO CONFORM TO WHAT YOU WANT. HARM NONE, MEANS TO NOT TO SEND PSYCHIC ENERGIES OUT TO PURPOSELY HARM ANOTHER. BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN NOT TO PROTECT YOUR HEARTH AND HOME EITHER. YOU DECIDE FOR YOUR SELF WHAT HARM NONE MEANS TO YOU.

10. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WORKING AND A SPELL. EVERYONE DOES SPELL WORK. A SPELL IS A THOUGHT PROJECTED TO PRODUCE A CHANGE WHERE AS A WORKING IS ACTUALLY PRACTICING WITCHCRAFT AND IS MUCH DEEPER THEN A THOUGHT AND ENTAILS HERBS, INVOCATIONS, CANDLES, CREATING SACRED SPACE, CASTING CIRCLE, CONSECRATION OF TOOLS, PHASES OF THE MOON AND ASTROLOGY HOUSES, PLUS A GREAT DEAL OF THOUGHT. I PURPOSELY LEFT OUT OTHER THINGS I DO WHEN DOING A WORKING.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


1. Q: IF YOUR A WITCH THAT MAKES YOU DEVIL WORSHIPPER ,, RIGHT?

ANSWER: WRONG,,THE "DEVIL" IS AN ANTI -PAGAN PROPAGANDA DEVISE INVENTED BY THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH. HE { OR MORE APPROPRIATELY, "IT"} HAS NEVER EXISTED IN WRITTEN LITERATURE PRIOR TO THE NEW TESTAMENT. WITCHCRAFT IS A PRE-CHRISTIAN RELIGION WHICH HAS BEEN AROUND FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS.

2. Q: ARE YOU A BLACK WITCH OR A WHITE WITCH?

ANSWER: I AS I CAN'T SPEAK ON ALL WITCHES BEHALF ARE NONE IN OUR TRADITION AS ALL COLORS HAVE A DIFFERENT MEANING AND A DIFFERENT PURPOSE AT DIFFERENT TIMES. BLACK TO MANY CONATATES "EVIL" AND WE ARE NOT " EVIL". BLACK TO US IS THE MOST PERFECT COLOR BECAUSE AS YOU KNOW BLACK IS THE COLOR OF ALL COLORS COMBINED. BLACK ALSO DRAWS IN UNIVERSAL POWER SO WE CAN UTILIZE IT AS WE NEED IT TO HELP HUMANKIND. WHITE IS WHAT WE USE FOR FULL MOON RITES A LOT OF TIMES, AS IN THE WHITE FLOWER TO SIGNIFY SILVER. WHITE ALSO IS THE COLOR THAT WE USE AS OUR GODDESS CANDLE AND TO PURIFY TALISMAN. WHITE IS ALSO A REPELANT TO PSYCHIC ATTACKS. WHITE ALSO IS A PURIFING COLOR.

3.Q: ARE YOU A GOOD WITCH OR A BAD WITCH?

ANSWER: ALL THE WITCHES I KNOW PERSONALLY ARE GOOD BECAUSE WE STRIVE TO MAKE OUR UNIVERSE A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE AND WORSHIP. I AGAIN DON'T SPEAK FOR ALL WHOM PROFESS THEY ARE INDEED A WITCH. WE DON'T DO HARM TO OTHERS UNLESS HARM IS DONE UNTO US. WE ALL HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT KIND OF WITCH WE ARE IN OUR HEARTS AND SOULS. SPIRITUALITY SHOULDN'T BE A " TEST" TO SEE WHO KNOWS MORE, OR WHOM IS A HEREDITARY WITCH,, DOES IT REALLY MATTER?? WE ARE HUMANS SO KEEPING THAT IN MIND WE ALL MAKE OUR SHARE OF MISTAKES( LESSONS) BUT AFTER ALL ISN'T THAT WHAT LIFES ABOUT,, LEARNING? WITH THE WORD "WITCH" COMES A CERTAIN RESPONSIBILITY AS I DON'T USE THAT WORD LIGHTLY , I AM NOT A TITLE PERSON BUT TO ME IT SIGNIFIES A TIME IN HISTORY THAT MANY DIED FOR AND A PEOPLE LONG FORGOTTEN FOR THERE SACRIFICES TO MAKE HISTORY WHAT WE HAVE IT TODAY. YOU HAVE YOUR " GOOD WITCHES" THAT TRUELY STRIVE FOR BETTERMENT OF HUMANKIND AND THEN YOU HAVE WANT TO BE'S THAT USE THAT WORD AS A TREND OR BECAUSE A NEW MOVIE CAME OUT AND EVERYONE WANTS TO HOP ON THE BAND WAGON. I GUESS WITH ANY RELIGION OR SPIRITUALITY YOU HAVE YOUR DEDICATED WORSHIPPERS AND THEN YOUR CORRUPTED FOLLOWERS BUT YOU HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT YOU ARE AS I BELIEVE KARMA RETURNS BACK TO US AND CAN MANIFEST IN MANY WAYS. I HAVE MET MANY WITCHES,,,, I HAVE KNOWN FEW. A WITCH ACTUALLY PRACTICES HER/HIS RELIGION OR SPIRITUALITY. AGAIN,, YOU DECIDE WHAT THE WORD" WITCH" MEANS TO YOU. TO STAND UNDER THE MOON AND TALK TO YOUR DEITIES IS DOING SOME THING AND THEY WILL HEAR YOU.

4.Q: IS A WITCH JUST A WOMAN AND THE MALE A WARLOCK?

ANSWER: ALL ARE CALLED WITCHES, BOTH MALE AND FEMALE. WE DON'T USE THE WORD " WARLOCK" AS THAT IS A CHRISTIAN CONCEPT . IT COMES FROM THE WORD" WARLOGA" MEANING OATH BREAKER,TRAITOR AND LIAR. THE WORD WARLOCK HAS NO PLACE IN WITCHCRAFT AND NEVER HAS.

5.Q: WHAT IS A TRADITION?

ANSWER: A TRADITION IS A SPECIFIC CULTURE, DEITIES, GODDESS, GODS, OR WAY IN WHICH YOU CHOOSE TO WORSHIP AND PRACTICE,, HERE'S A FEW EXAMPLES,, IN OUR TRADITION WE HONOR THREE GODDESS'S AND TWO GODS GIVING A BALANCE TO YIN/ YUNG OR THE FEMALE / MALE ASPECTS. THERE ARE MANY OTHER TRADITIONS SUCH AS: ECLECTIC, GARDNERIAN, TRADITIONIST, ALEXANDERIAN, ISIS, DIANICS AND MORE. I DON'T KNOW THEM ALL BUT I THINK THIS WILL GIVE YOU A GOOD BASE TO BEGIN.

6.Q: OK YOUR A WITCH AND I WAS WONDERING IF YOU CAN SEE MY FUTURE?

ANSWER: WRONG,,, WITCHCRAFT IS A RELIGION, PSYCHIC WORK AND WITCHCRAFT ARE NOT THE SAME. MANY WITCHES I KNOW HAVE A GIFT YOU CALL "PSYCHIC ABILITY" BUT WITCHCRAFT IS NOT ABOUT MAKING YOU RICH OR SOLVING YOUR LOVE LIFE CRISIS THIS WEEK. IT IS ABOUT WORSHIPPING OUR DEITIES AND WORKING WITH ENERGIES TO BRING ABOUT CHANGES FOR THE GOOD OF HUMANKIND. TO HELP HEAL THE BODY, SMELLS TO AWAKEN OUR MINDS, WORDS OF WISDOM TO HELP ANOTHER REALIZE THERE NOT ALONE IN THERE STRUGGLES OF DAILY LIFE.

7. Q: HOW DO YOU BECOME A WITCH?


1. YOU CAN FIND A COVEN IF YOUR FORTUNATE ENOUGH AND STUDY WITH THE HIGH PRIESTESS AND PRIEST AND WITH YOUR COVENMATES.

2. YOU CAN DO A SELF DEDICATION RITE WHERE THIS IS USUALLY DONE ON EITHER YOUR BIRTHDAY OR THE FULL MOON.

I BELIEVE IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO GET A GOOD FOUNDATION UNDER ANY ONE NEW EXPLORING THERE SPIRITUALITY AND TO FIND A GOOD QUALIFIED TEACHER. I OFTEN TELL THOSE NEW TO "NOT" READ" AND I DO THAT BECAUSE MANY BOOKS ARE VERY CONFUSING AND ALTHOUGHT YIELD MANY WORDS, THEY HAVE LITTLE TO SAY. THERE ARE HOWEVER A FEW ON THE MARKET THAT ARE WORTHY TO AND ACTUALLY TEACH ABOUT THE TRUE MEANING OF WITCHCRAFT . THIS PATH MAY NOT BE FOR EVERYONE , NOR EVERYONE FOR THIS PATH. IT HAS TO COME FROM WITH IN, A CONNECTION , A ONENESS WITH THE UNIVERSE AND ALL THAT WE SEE AND ALL THAT WE HAVE YET TO DISCOVER.

IT MUST BE A CALLING INSIDE YOU AND IT IS TO BECOME A WAY OF LIFE TO YOU. THERE IS NO ROOM IN WITCHCRAFT FOR A "PART TIME" WITCH. WE ARE FULL TIME AND ALWAYS TRUE TO OUR WAYS.

9. Last but not least, Witchcraft is NOT a federally recognized religion despite some who might thing so. Under our constitution it is illegal to deem any religion a federally acknowledged religion. It is states that decide to recognize Witchcraft as a religion and not all states do this. We have no national holidays nor any holidays even recognized. We continue to fight for equal rights but have a long way to go.

Religion is following some one else's concept and idea's , spirituality is paving your own path to your own beliefs.

MANY WENT TO THE FRONT LINES AND BECAME PUBLIC ABOUT THE CRAFT AND THEIR PRACTICES. WE MUST CONTINUE TO BE THE VOICES FOR OUR ANCESTORS AND THE OLD WAYS AND CONTINUE TO SPREAD OUR POSITIVE ASPECTS WHEN ASKED OR OTHERS INQUIRE ABOUT OUR RELIGIOUS PRACTICES. NO LONGER SHOULD WE HIDE IN THE BROOM CLOSET BUT MANY DO IN FEAR OF JOB LOSS, FAMILY'S DON'T KNOW AND THEY FEAR LOSING FRIENDS PERHAPS OR STATUS IN THE COMMUNITY. I'M SO VERY PROUD OF THE PENTAGRAM I WEAR AND WHAT THE RELIGION OF WITCHCRAFT MEANS TO ME AND OUR PAST, PRESENT AND OUR FUTURES. WE, YOU AND I ARE THE VOICES OF TODAY AND OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WILL BE HOPEFULY THE VOICE TO CARRY ON WHEN WERE LONG GONE.

MANY HAVE GONE PUBLIC LIKE lAURA CABOT AND DAVID PICKERING WHOM I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIS BOOK "DICTIONARY OF WITCHCRAFT".

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE HISTORY OF WITCHCRAFT AND THE PEOPLE THAT DIED SO WE CAN HAVE SOME OF THE RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS WE HAVE TODAY READ THIS BOOK. PERHAPS YOU WILL FIND THAT SOME OF THESE PEOPLE CAME FROM YOUR VERY OWN FAMILY TREE AND YOU ARE RELATED TO THEM! WOULDN'T THAT BE EXCITING!! THERE ARE MANY , MANY OTHERS IN THE FOR FRONT THAT TEACH AND DEVOTE THERE TIME AS WELL AS I TO EDUCATING THE PUBLIC ABOUT THE TRUTHS ABOUT WITCHCRAFT AND TO DISPELL THE LIES AND NEGATIVE PUBLICITY WE HAVE RECIEVED FOR YEARS DUE IN PART BUT NOT LIMITED BY: DISNEY, NEWS MEDIA, AND THE CHURCH. THE CHAIN OF IGNORANCE HAS TO BE BROKEN AND THIS IS MY SMALL CONTRIBUTION TO HELP TAKE OUT ONE LINK IN THAT VERY LONG CHAIN.

IN NO WAY IS THIS PAGE DESIGNED TO CONFORM YOU TO PAGANISM NOR AM I RECRUITING YOU TO JOIN OUR WAY OF LIFE , THIS IS SIMPLY AN ENLIGHTENING PAGE AND YOU CHOSE TO COME HERE. TO ALL THOSE OUT THERE SUCH AS I AM, MY HATS OFF TO YOU FOR A JOB WELL DONE, AND TO KEEP UP THE HARD WORK. YOU ARE WEAVING THE WEB OF ENLIGHTENMENT FOR THE NEXT GENERATION AND THE THREAD WILL ONLY GROW LONGER.

Many are confused as to what exactually is a waxing moon and a waning moon phase and how can I tell which phase I'm in now and what working should I be doing at what phase of the moon I'm in. Here's some information to help guide you. If your in the Southern Hemisphere just reverse this.

In the northern hemisphere, if the left side of the Moon is dark then the light part is growing, and the Moon is referred to as waxing (moving towards a full moon). If the right side of the Moon is dark then the light part is shrinking, and the Moon is referred to as waning (moving towards a new moon). Assuming that the viewer is in the northern hemisphere, the right portion of the Moon is the part that is always growing. The phrase "dog comes, cat goes" is any easy way to remember the phases of the moon. A waxing moon has the shape of the letter D (which is the first letter of dog) and a waning moon has the shape of the letter C (which is the first letter of cat)
