I’m very excited to finally be on here! I have been coming to this site for half a year now. The many posts and forum questions and answers have helped me learn so much! I’m still very much a baby witch but I hope to continue working with everyone for some further guidance!
I discovered my interest and love of the Craft fully right after before Covid really hit the western hemisphere.
This was my current state before discovering:
-I just got out of a toxic relationship
-Got a really intense mental health diagnosis amongst other health issues. (managing now though through therapy thank goodness! Bless all the great therapists making a difference these past two years <3 )
-Also discovered that there were many lies regarding spirituality through family which didn’t help (we practiced a certain way for many years and realized later it was not what it seemed in a pretty devastating way).
Mind you my interest was always there in the background of my life!
-I grew up loving movies all about witches and magic and even practiced my own magic in small ways (I thought I could create cloudy days as a kid? Just by calling for rain).
-My mom taught me astrology and how to be in tune with nature
-Saw auras for most of my childhood
-Rock hound and always kept gems and other stones in my room or pockets(even carried a 2 pound quartz from a quarry near my family’s home once…)
-We only ever owned black cats (joking of course but still funny to think about )
A lot of people in my life had mildly practiced or fully blown practiced, but I had a negative experience from a lot of them due to their skills or practices being willed with ill intent. Only positive influence was a former roommate who was a kitchen witch and worked a lot with the Fae.
More about myself specifically:
If I had to describe myself, I am a Eclectic Witch for sure. However, I use a lot of magic in the kitchen and want to learn and practice more.
Also really want plant friends again and getting better with Herbology.
I am also REALLY into learning Tasseography if anyone has any good starting tips?
My favorite holiday is probably Halloween (Samhain) and love fall activities in general! I have a really hard time with Christmas but I’d like to get better at honing in more on the festivities of Yule instead or even something different and creating something a bit different (totally open to hearing about other personal experiences with this!). But because of my birth month I am a true summer baby and love when the fruit is in full growth and all the leaves have returned to the branches on hot days!
I am a Leo but in my chart I’m more Leo and Cancer so I have a lot of steam going on!
My spiritual totem in life has always been Bears in a pair, representing my Masculine and Feminine.
I currently worship with Ganesha (for some reason this past year he kept reappearing in my dreams and in visuals all around me in my every day life so I gave it a shot and I have loved the connection I’ve developed with Lord Ganesha over time).
I have been back and forth on researching other deities. My ancestral background is predominantly Welsh but the Welsh gods/goddesses have not quite spoken to me yet. Still need to spend some more time researching and meditating.
I live in Northern New Mexico and have grown to love this Land of Enchantment, but I’ve lived all over.
I was born in Canada, immigrated to Arizona, grapes of wrathed my way over to California, moved to New Mexico for college. Been staying put ever since
Anyways, I look forward to learning more and talking to everyone by and by! Hope everyone is doing well with everything going on in the world and that you’re all having a blessed night!
