I've become more interest in witchcraft lately & I saw that thingy you reblogged about it so I just wondered, do you know any good blogs to learn more about it from? For a complete novice I mean :)

Oh yay! There are a lot! Though most of the blogs I follow are pagan, which not all pagans practice witchcraft. I suggest reading books! They can be so much more helpful and most likely to be correct.

natural-magics is a wonderful blog and is very knowledgeable on many pagan subjects.

cicadinae​ is also an awesome blog

goddessmoon​ focuses more on wiccan religion, traditions, rituals, etc.

one-earthbound-angel​ also focuses mainly on paganism and specific gods/deities. Search through his tags and I’m sure there are plenty beginner posts!

pagans-dream and sagefae have helpful links and post wonderful photos of witchy stuff! Also very knowledgeable.

I’m also a big fan of thelivingwiccan and thepagansanctum!

Again, I highly suggest going to the library or the book store and pick up a few wiccan books! I would be more than willing to link a few of my favorites when I first started!

Followers, feel free to add some of your favorites! There are so many!

Thank you for the plug!

On my blog you can look through the 101 tag, the book list tag, the blog list tag, the community tag, and the Answered Questions Page.

I also have a page for my original spells and altars, and a side-blog called TheLivingSpellbook that is solely filled with spells.

you can also try pinterest. com because that’s a sight that post a lot on wicca and just about anything else you are interested in„ all you do is sign up and start putting together your interests on boards that you create yourself.. I have gotten a lot from the site :)„ but books really are the best way to go

I want to like Pinterst, I really do. But the thing is, you see a lot of stolen content there. In fact, most of what I’ve seen on the Wicca tags has actually been my stolen content reposted a hundred times over. Altars, articles, etc, I see them pretty frequently, pretty much every time I go online and check.

It’s a convenient way to collect a whole bunch of information and photos, for sure. But the thing is that the people who originally posted and created those info pages and photos don’t get credited for their work. 

Instead, why not go straight to the source and ask the authors directly? There are plenty of other blogs, books, and websites you can look through, not just tumblr. It’s a little more work, but you get much more personal results and the original content creators are extremely appreciative when they’re not getting stolen from!

TL;DR: I agree, books are the best way to go!

Why does Hollywood always show witches casting spells in Latin? Like, how many witches out there actually write and use long Latin phrases in their spell craft?

Well, I “”“speak”“” Latin, so… yeah, actually?

That me, by the way, hello! I took Latin all throughout my school years.

Your sigilmanship is a phenomena all on its own. You should make a Sigil tarot deck. I don't think that has ever been done? Well at least to my knowledge.

Actually, I believe someone on tumblr was doing a kickstarter for a sigil tarot deck back around february or march. The divination form I’m creating with sigil is I’m actually making a sigil board with sigils for specific emotions on it so one can then use a scrying crystal or throw dice/bones to read the emotions involved with the situation and then analize that for an answer to the question

That was thelivingwiccan's Sigilic Tarot kickstarter … at least, that’s the one I know of; if there’s another one, I doubt it was as promising as the one thelivingwiccan was putting together. Unfortunately, it did not get funded :’(

Yep, that was me! Unfortunately it didn’t get funded. I’ve considered trying to do it again, considering the deck IS already made, it just needs to be done in prints. I may try it again sometime. 

The pictures you were posting of the cards and works in progress were really lovely

Thank you very much! A lot of love went into those designs!

It just ended up that people didn’t realize exactly how much it cost to make a tarot card deck. They figured I could do it with 2 or 3 thousand, easily, when the truth is that 11 thousand is a pretty conservative estimate for 500 decks.

I ended up getting a lot of hate mail, actually. So when the kickstarter failed, I said, screw it, and just made the deck for myself! It sits pretty damn nicely now on my altar. 

If you decided to make prints of the deck i would absolutely be interested— i donated to the kickstarter and was sososo disappointed that it didnt get funded :’( so if you ever do that again please keep me in mind and i will definitely order one (or more~)!!

Thank you for the support!

I’ve been considering re-doing the kickstarter, but with a much smaller print size. As in 50-100 decks, not 500.

I was wondering if I could have permission to copy your oak root power spell into my book of shadows? i'm a solitary practitioner and i've always been fond of your spells and general viewpoints on the path. thanks!

Yes, you absolutely may, so long as you give credit!

Thank you very much for asking permission, and I’m glad you like the spell. Hope it works well for you!
