Hello I’m new here


Hello all. My best friend, Nelly, and I are very new to all this. I’m super happy to be here learning tons of amazing things. I am from California. I’m a stay-at-home mom, crafter, artist, plant enthusiast. I’m 43. I’m discovering a new side to myself and looking forward to this new journey and meeting new people.

Merry meet @JollyStar & to Nelly also! I have two puppers that are by my side most of the day & they are good helpers with my practice :joy: I’m Siofra from Cape Cod & an Eclectic Witch here in the forum. I lean towards Celtic Paganism & work with Celtic Goddesses, so I have been learning about Celtic Mythology :triquetra:

A great place to start to figure out what you are interested in or what works for you is the course section of the site & then kind of work from there. Every week we have a challenge that explores a different area of magic & witchcraft. Another great place to learn about different parts & what works for you & what doesn’t.

Currently, I am learning about Crystal Healing & to become accredited. I also enjoy learning astrology, tarot, oracle, runes, Celtic mythology, Celtic Paganism, & Irish Paganism. I originally started learning how to meditate, in a year & a half, I have gone from being able to do a 3 minute guided meditation to up to a 20 minute guided meditation.

If you have any questions or something to share, please feel free to do so. Everyone here is very friendly & helpful. Someone will get you pointed in the right direction & you can also start a topic of your own!

Another great place to start off is:
Start the Interactive Forum Tutorial with Discobot!

Merry meet @JollyStar (and Nelly too! ) :heart:

Welcome to the forum and also to the beginning of your exciting magickal journey- congrats to you for following your heart and finding your way into the Craft! :sparkles::mage:

Please make yourself at home here, the forum and all its research are for you to enjoy and use as you’d like. I recommend mastering the Search Tool as well as the Tag System- both are great ways to quickly find relevant discussions about any areas of magickal interest.

There is also the Q&A Category- if you have any questions, that’s the best place to go for magickal help and plenty of advice! The coven is sure to come to your aid when you’ve got something on your mind :infinite_roots:

Looking forward to talking with you more soon- Blessed be! :sparkles:

@Garnet @BrightBear Thank you so much! It’s a name I have used in many online places. I actually use to be into playing TONS of video games and always used this name. I also have done a few craft fairs using it also. It’s just me now lol. My last name is actually Jolly (so fun at Christmas time, ‘tis the season to be jolly’) and stars are something that I have always liked for decoration and what not.
