Hello, my name is Samantha and I am from Massachusetts. I am new to spells8 but I have been into witch craft for a few years now. I am looking forward to learning and growing in my craft. So far I have discovered I lean more towards a solitary and I feel I am more of an eclectic/holistic witch.
Welcome to the forum @samantha92
My name is Megan and I’m one of the moderators here at Spells8 It’s nice to meet you!
I’m an eclectic witch and Celtic polytheist, so my practice tends to be more folk-magic-based and Irish-centered. I’m getting in touch with my personal land after moving here almost three years ago.
I also tend to be more solitary in practice, only ever getting together for a ritual once or twice a long time ago – and with a local shop and not people I was familiar with. As I get older (I’m only 31, but still ) I find myself naturally gravitating toward people offline that share similar interests. I even found out recently that a few people I’ve become friends with are also witches - we just never talked about it!
I look forward to seeing you around the coven and forum. Feel free to hop right into the discussions or create your own!
Merry meet and welcome home @samantha92
It’s so nice to meet you, Samantha, I’m Marsha, an Eclectic Solitary Witch, from Colorado. You are in the right place to learn more! There is a lot of great information here, so if you need any guidance, or have any questions, let us know. Welcome to the family
With love and magick always
Welcome to the family, you’re going to love it here
Hi @samantha92! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum!
What kind of magic are you interested in? I’m a Solitary Eclectic Wiccan who likes candle magic and chants.
If you have any problems or any questions, just ask for help and someone will pop up. I look forward to getting to know you!
Nice to meet you Megan. I have a niece and friend that are into witch craft as well. I have already started to teach them basic principles and basics and helping them along their own journey. I am planning on attending a few events this year in hopes of trying new things and to meet people.
Hello Amethyst, nice to meet you. I like candle magic, herbal magic, crystal magic, spell jars, some elemental magic, and weather magic among others. I also enjoy meditation, divination, healing and kitchen magic as well.
Nice to meet you Marsha. I already feel like I have learned more and I am really excited to see where this new path takes me. It is nice to have education, tools, as well as a community of people to share and grow with.
Wow, you’re well-rounded! Good for you! I look forward to seeing what you do during our Weekly Witchy Challenges!
Welcome to the forum @samantha92! I’m Siofra_Strega, another moderator here at Spells8 & I’m from Cape Cod. There are definitely only a few members from Massachusetts here that isn’t a requirement or anything at all!
We have many witches that classify themselves as Eclectic in some way, so I’m sure you’ll fit right in with us! Everyone here is very friendly & supportive, so if you do have any questions at all feel free to ask or to share anything with us! Jump in on any open topic or start your own
I hope you are able to join us in some of the regular activities each week & look forward to learning more with you!
I agree with the other comments. I can’t wait to see what you come up with in the Challenges and it’s already feeling like you’ve always been here
Personally I can’t wait to learn from you
A little side road, @Siofra_Strega I have family all over the cape, particularly Sandwich, maybe we’re related
Hello Siofra, nice to meet you. My boyfriend works on the cape. I love the cape, it’s beautiful there. So far, I absolutely love being here and look forward to what lies ahead.
I look forward to discovering more. Where do I find the weekly activities and challenges? I am definitely curious about that and look forward to participating.
We currently have this Weekly Witchy Challenge - Magick of the Sun ongoing until very early Tuesday AM… I believe it ends at maybe 6 AM Central European Time.
Tomorrow there will be a Merry Meet Monday post in the morning also. They will show up at the top of your feed labeled for the week. Its a great place to find out different happenings through the week & chit chat with other members. This week’s is:

Merry meet @samantha92,
Apologies for the late reply, but I wanted to jump on the welcome wagon too! I’m Bry, another moderator here in the forum and a fellow Eclectic Witch. It’s a pleasure to meet you!
Please make yourself at home here and know that you are always welcome to reach out. As you can likely already tell, your new coven is a very friendly one! We’re here and happy to help should you need anything (or if you just want to chat about magick!)
Hope to talk with you more soon- Blessed be!
That’s so amazing! Witchcraft is always fun with more people, in my opinion lol and even better when they’re family and you can see them more often. I hope you have fun at the events you go to!
