Lazy & Rough around the edges

I’ve been a member since February but I wanted to reintroduce myself as I am, behind the screen.

The fire in me is always wanting to learn more and more. Unfortunately I have not mastered the art of slowing myself down to be able to retain all the information I take in. When the information has a source that is reachable, I am all over the place in my communication. One day I could be killing it, responding to every comment, reaching out to others… then, I just go silent. I don’t know what it is that leads me to doing that but I find it bothersome, lol. I’m sure others do too!

I think I’ve come to the conclusion that the lack in my consistency to respond has made it so others are not interested in communicating with me. I understand that, especially as I am typing it out. I also think I’m a little long winded and my way of typography seems rigid, heh-heh.

Anyways!

I’m Janelle. I live in Anchorage, Alaska and I would say that I am an Eclectic Witch. I’m a Sagittarius Sun, Libra Moon, and Scorpio Rising. I have an almost 9 year old daughter with Virgo Sun, Leo Moon, and Aquarius Rising. Where in the world is the manual for that thing?!(Just kiiiiiddding, I love her.)

It’s crazy to think what conversations I was having a few years ago that lead me down this path of Witchcraft, the occult, spiritualism, etc. I’m sad to say that the woman who I considered my Witch Sister and the person who joined me on this journey, has gone her own way. I’m happy for her but I miss the closeness and the bond. Creating lavish rituals, sharing the excitement of something new one of us learned. That’s another reason why I am reaching out! I’d love to connect with more of you, especially in these days where the world is filled with so much hate, blame and animosity.

Okay, I will stop there lol.

LOL absolutely! I think that happens to all of us! It’s hard to keep communication consistent with so many things happening around… :grimacing:

Thanks for re-introducing yourself, @janelle!! It’s important to go at your own pace and not feel rushed or hurried to do anything. Learning and discovering is more fun when it happens spontaneously!

As someone with a Moon in Leo, I can tell you, we don’t follow anyone’s orders! You’ve been warned!! :laughing:

Thank you for the re-introduction. I think the stories of how people found their paths are fascinating.

As a father with 3 kids, I was sad to find out none of them came with manuals. :upside_down_face:

Does your daughter know about the path you are on? Are you teaching her any of your practices? If not, do you plan to? These are things I am just now learning, being a baby witch myself.

Haha I’ll take that warning into consideration! My love, her father, is a Libra Sun and a Libra Moon, but wow… I can’t remember what his Rising sign is though. Strange!

We have been recently discussing having another child. Things are so nerve racking in these days we are in though. Unsettling sometimes to think of bringing another being into this physical relm.

She most certainly does know and I couldn’t imagine it any other way. Being her attention span is that of squirrel!, whatever I am including her in can’t be too long unless its something she is REALLY wanting to be apart of and put her energy into. I try not to make everything so serious that it deters her from wanting to partake but I have expressed and shown her the importance of focusing energy into whatever is being done.

A very warm welcome to you, Janelle! :heart:

With the current situation and the state of the world, it is unfortunately even harder these days to connect with others walking on the same path. I hope you can find a new sense of community and shared enthusiasm for the craft here! :candle::two_hearts:

Thank you for (re)introducing yourself- it is a pleasure to get to know you! :blush: Feel free to reach out at any time here in the forums- share your spells, rituals, thoughts, and all the wisdom of an Eclectic Witch! :sparkling_heart:

Blessed Be! :sparkles:
