Thank you for the warm welcome :blush:
It’s very nice to meet you🤝
Yes, it’s most definitely a wonderful site! I think I’m going to have a lot of fun trying to navigate around the site :crazy_face: there’s just so much to explore. I’m like you, I’m interested in a little bit everything! Blessed Be my new friend :slightly_smiling_face:


Hi @J-me1977! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum! :infinite_roots: Happy early birthday!

You’re in the right place to make new friends! Have you found the Courses yet? They’re a great way to start on the forum.

If you have any questions, just ask and someone will pop up and help you. I look forward to getting to know you!


You are very welcome. :heart::sparkles: I remember when I thought I looked at everything on the site :joy::joy:, boy was I wrong. I started learning to explore the forum more and there’s so much more info in here as well as on the Spells8 site. I do wish more crystals would be added to the site.

Is there a way you could do that @Francisco ? Is this a possibility? @TheTravelWitch_Bry, @MeganB , @Susurrus ?


Welcome to the forum, @J-me1977 :wave:

My name is Megan and I’m one of the moderators here at Spells8 :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: it’s nice to meet you!

I am also from the sunny state of Florida - over here on the Gulf Coast! :sun: Well, I’m not from here, but this is where I currently live. I’m an eclectic witch and Celtic polytheist, mainly focusing on Irish deities and folklore. :triquetra: I’ve been Wiccan in the past but it isn’t really the path for me anymore.

You aren’t alone in the forum with depression and anxiety :raised_hand_with_fingers_splayed: I also have some mental health struggles. We’re here for you!

I look forward to seeing you around in the forum!

New stuff is being added all the time! :blush: Currently, the newest part of the site we have is the Shadow Work course.

Do you have any crystals you’d like to see added first? We’re always open to suggestions!

Welcome to the forum @J-me1977! I’m Siofra_Strega a moderator here at Spells8 from Cape Cod! I have family in FL, so have been able to visit & always hate to leave. :laughing:

I have some similar mental health things & my own physical ones that is like a round robin of doctor appointments at times. So we are definitely very understanding of such things. I am also unable to work.

There is a lot of good information on the site & within the forum itself, so feel free to learn away! If you have any questions at all or would like to share something with us please feel free to jump in on any topic or start your own. Someone will be right along to help you out as soon as they can :hugs:

I look forward to getting to know you :infinite_roots:


Truthfully! This is probably the most informative site I’ve found by far! That’s definitely what I’ll be doing tomorrow :upside_down_face: I’m going to try to figure out the forum myself. I honestly love all the info I’m finding and saving and downloading :relaxed:.


Merry meet @J-me1977,

I’m Bry, another moderator here in the forum and a fellow Eclectic Witch- wishing you a very warm welcome! :heart:

I’m so happy that you’ve been enjoying the site so far! Please make yourself at home here, Jaime- the coven is blessed to have you :infinite_roots: :blush:

Like all new sites, there is a bit of a learning curve- but you’re already doing wonderfully, Jaime! :heart:

If I can offer up a little suggestion, there is a funky little robot here called Discobot who will walk you through a private tutorial and train you how to use some of the features of the forum. It’s pretty fun- if you’re interested and haven’t already met him, here are the instructions on how to do the Discobot tutorial!

Start the Interactive Forum Tutorial with Discobot! :robot:

And if you ever have any questions or need any help about using the forum, us Moderators are here to do just that! You are always welcome to reach out :blush:

Blessed be! :sparkles:
