Hi everybody

My birth name is Kim but my chosen name is Winter. I’m 51 ( 52 in 3 days time) was born and raised in Boston, Ma but spent every summer and half my autumn’s in the beautiful White Mountain Valley of N.H.
I was raised as a devout Roman Catholic but never quite felt a connection with my faith. So I taught myself about Wicca ( in secrecy of course), Green and Hedge Witchcraft and paganism.
I consider myself an electic solitary green witch since I have always had an infinity for nature and a natural love of animals. I became a Veterinary Technician ( straight out of HS) and worked in that field for 10 + yrs.
Gave that up to be a stay at home mom to my 4 awesome kids, who are now all grown and on their own.
I have 3 black cats ( Shadow, Binx and Smudge) who are my “babies”, I also feed the neighbourhood strays and 3 squirrels ( Rocky, Squeakers and Bullwinkle :rofl::rofl:), so yea I pretty much have a zoo here. :sweat_smile::sweat_smile:
I immigrated to the UK 5 and half yrs ago and love it here, my only complaint NO SNOW :cry::cry:
Might have to move to Scotland for that lol.
I love to crochet, read, learn ( almost any subject but especially history, mythology, literature and languages) and do almost anything outdoors.
I can currently speak English, Spanish and French Canadian fluently and am working part-time as a Heath Care Assistant.
I like meeting new people and learning about their paths and hopefully (maybe) even find some friends near me. :blush:
So yea that’s me in a nut shell, if you have any questions feel free to ask, I’m an open book. :blush::wink:
Thanks for letting me join and blessed be to all. :blush::purple_heart::purple_heart:

Merry meet :hugs: and welcome home :infinite_roots: @Winter

I’m so glad you have joined us, Kim, I’m Marsha, an Eclectic Solitary Witch, from Colorado. I was raised as a Methodist, but I often went to a Catholic church with my grandmother. I had too many questions that the Sunday School teachers could not answer. It never felt quite right, so I also taught myself about witchcraft, astrology, and more in secret.

I was also a stay-at-home mom with 4 kids! I think it’s awesome that you can speak so many languages! I have learned a few words and phrases in Spanish and Italian but that’s it.

I have several kitty children and I also feed the neighborhood feral cats! The local squirrels like to gnaw off the sunflowers and save the seeds for winter. I am an empath and I feel the animals’ pain, so I don’t think I could work with them! Thank you :pray: for helping them! :black_cat: :chipmunk:

Happy Early Birthday :birthday: @Winter and welcome to the family! :people_hugging:

With magick blessings :dizzy: always,
Marsha

I too am an empath and thought I would have difficulties with my chosen profession but it actually helped a lot because I was aways able to calm and reassure the animals that came into our care that other coworkers werent able to. Everytime we would get a reallt difficult animal someone would call for me and woukd ask me to “work my magik” if they only knew. :laughing:
I had to learn really quickly to not let it affect me and just concentrate on reassuring the animal so we coukd do our workbas quickly as possible.
So I guess in a sense being an empath actually helped me, its the same with my current work in the care home.

I love this. Thank you for sharing your story. I am so glad that you worked your magick! It sounds as if you are a natural healer and it’s wonderful you are still using your gift with the patients in the care home.

With much love :heart: always

I’m disappointed! I always used to think of London as getting snow in winter. Well, there goes that fantasy. :joy:

Depends where in England, we get snow in Bristol, only lasts a week, but it’s lovely

That looks like a fun snowball throwing moment about to happen! :grin:

I love how everything looks with the snow over it. It’s beautiful in it’s contrast and muted colour. :heart_eyes:

Merry meet!

I’m Kat and am currently located in North Carolina. I found the practice over 20 years ago but lost my way for a while. I found my way home a couple of years ago and shortly thereafter found this amazing group of people!! I am a fairly eclectic Green witch with a deep interest in tarot, runes, herbalism, and moon magic. My deities are Artemis (she’s been with me since the beginning), The Morrigan, and Hekate, a recent guide in my life.

Ah a bit of a similar path! I’ve worked as a veterinary technician for 10+ years as well and currently work at a zoo. :paw_prints: :tiger2: :leopard: :wolf: :lion:

So glad to have you here! :herb: :bow_and_arrow: :hekate_wheel: :crescent_moon:
