Hi everyone! My name is Juniperluna and I am an eclectic witch from Maine, USA. I am an artist, I have ESP, and I identify as a sensitive. I’m a mother of three daughters. My ancestors guided me to witchcraft. My parents were Roman Catholic and by the time I was 7 years old, I knew I was not. I didn’t know about Paganism yet at 7 but I learned some of my ancestors were native American and pagans from europe, from then on I felt like I was like them, not like my immediate family. I have always struggled with finding a place among people where I fit. I guess I was just more complex, but it made me feel alienated so I began using drugs to escape the feelings of other’s and the intrusive thoughts of everyone else around me. I almost lost myself, my life. Luckily, I found recovery in time to save myself, and found like minded people within that group of recovering addicts. Today, I am 8 years clean from drugs and I am finally happy and connected to the Earth, I make art and love with my whole being.
