Hi, new member here

Hi I’m Roberta in Portsmouth, Virginia; 52 with a 29 year old daughter & almost 4 year old granddaughter. I’ve always been interested in learning more as my family is part gypsy & have many gifts.


Merry meet @roberta3,

Welcome to the forum- we’re blessed to have you here! :blush:

I am loving your enthusiasm, Roberta! If you’re searching for magickal materials to help you pursue your Craft, I’m happy to say that you have come to the right place :woman_mage:

Have you found the Courses yet? They are great way to jump in and explore some of the most popular areas of magick. I particularly recommend the Green Witch Herbalism Course and the Spellcasting 101 Course, but there are many more- pick the ones that most call to you! :grinning:

How exciting that you are exploring your family heritage! :books: I am not Roma myself and I’ve made the choice to respectfully refrain from using the term gypsy (we actually have a discussion going about the term in the magickal community- you are very welcome to share your thoughts there and add to the discussion! :blush:), but I certainly wish you all the best with your studies and am cheering you on on your journey :heart::raised_hands:

Please make yourself at home here! I’m looking forward to chatting with you more soon- Blessed be! :sparkles:


Welcome to the forum! I have been here for about 2 years & learned so much from starting with just about nothing. I had practiced a little bit when I was in high school, but then life happened & after about 20 to 25 I started practicing again… but had to relearn? Refresh? what I thought I knew & move forward from there. So I also recommend going through the courses.

According to my DNA & Geneaology work, I have genetics & family that originate from that area too! I haven’t explored much more into it but it’s a small connection none the less.

I hope you have had time to explore the forum! There is a lot of information within the forum & contained in the replies to topics. If you have any questions of your own, feel free to ask & someone will pop in to help you out!

Where in the World are the Witches? GROUP POLL! 2022 :map: might be a fun topic to look at to see where others are from in the forum too!


Welcome blessed be

Merry meet and welcome @roberta3 :infinite_roots:

I’m Marsha, an eclectic witch from Colorado. I have done some past life regressions, and I saw a time when I was a young gypsy woman. I felt both happy and powerful. It’s become a cherished memory for me.

My Grandmother’s family had a traveling ‘Circus’ and show when she was a child. She had some interesting stories about fortune-telling, which fascinated me as a child. Still does in fact.

Anyway, I’m so glad you have joined us, and I’m looking forward to getting to know you better.

Wishing you Love :heart: & Magick :magic_wand: :dizzy:


Hello and welcome, Roberta!


Sometimes I wish my ancestry could be exciting, Gypsies! How great.
I’m Irish with a little of the Nordic countries mixed. My Dad used to say just tell anyone who asks that we’re Heine’s 57 variety or American.
