Somewhat Familiar - Houston Tx

I’m familiar with the craft. I’ve not exactly come out of the closet, some of the people in my everyday life are aware, but not all. I am lucky, my significant other is supportive and understanding, but not interested in practicing the craft. My mother was a witch and introduced it to me at a young age. I’ve always come back to it, but not for long. Just enough to dabble again. In short, I’m not exactly new, but not exactly experienced either. I have cast some spells successfully and have been told I am an old soul.


Hello :hugs: and welcome home :infinite_roots: @victoria49

I’m Marsha, an Eclectic Solitary Witch, from Colorado. I’m so glad you have joined us, Victoria, welcome to the family :people_hugging:

With love :heart: and magick :dizzy: always


@victoria49, welcome to Spells8.
“Coming out of the closet is a choice of your making.”
You can beat your chest and shout “I’m a Witch!”
or you can just dabble until you feel comfortable enough in your strength to come out. There are no set rules about becoming, practicing, and or coming out.
One of the most wonderful things about this site and its members? Is acceptance and understanding. No one is mean or condescending.
No bullying is allowed, nor is someone pushing their beliefs on anyone else.
The only set rule here is to be nice. Other than that check the guidelines on the Forum.
Blessed be


Welcome to the forum @victoria49 :wave:

My name is Megan and I’m one of the moderators here at Spells8 :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: It’s nice to meet you!

From one old soul to another - welcome! :tada: I always love hearing from people who learn witchcraft from their family. I didn’t have that experience so it’s fascinating to me how people learn, what they were taught, and where their path took them.

Anyway, I’m glad you’re here and I look forward to seeing you around the forum!


Hi @victoria49! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum! :infinite_roots:

It’s great to have you here! I’m halfway in the closet too, my helper knows I’m pagan but I don’t go around advertising it, you know? Ain’t nobody’s business but your own! It’s all good.

What kind of magic did your Mother go into if you don’t mind me asking? I’m always interested in what family witches learn.

Oh, and if you have any questions about anything on the forum, just ask and someone will pop up to help you. I look forward to getting to know you!


Merry meet @victoria49,

I’m Bry, one of the moderators here in the forum and an Eclectic Witch- wishing you a very warm welcome!

It sounds like you have a supportive spouse and a great witchy resource in your mother- you are very blessed indeed, Victoria! :blush:

Congrats on your successful spells- may I ask if there are any particular areas in the Craft that are your favorites (tarot, green magick, astrology, etc)? Whatever you enjoy most, I’m sure you’ll find plenty of like-minded coven members here who share your interests! Please make yourself at home :infinite_roots: :heart:

Hope to talk with you more soon- Blessed be! :sparkles:


Yes, my spouse is supportive and I am definitely lucky. :heartpulse: I consider myself an astrology, tarot, and fire witch, and also like my crystals. I’m definitely not a green witch, try as I might, I do not have a green thumb. I got into astrology young. My grandfather was in the Coast Guard and lived out of the city. We would spend weeks with my grandparents during summers and he’d show me the stars. With my mother’s influence, I started with tarot and protection spells. From there, it grew into crystals, fire, and other spells, things that interested me.

I don’t think I’ve ever given that much thought before. Thank you for asking. :slight_smile:


Welcome @victoria49! :sparkles:

I’m Ashley, an eclectic witch from Wisconsin. I’m another old soul as well :slight_smile: You’ll be right at home here. And that’s wonderful that you have a connection to your mother that way!

I look forward to getting to know you more in the forums!


That is such a beautiful story :star2: :blush:

It sounds like many of your talents were nurtured with care by your loved ones- now every time you look to the stars or use your tarot or spells, it’s an act of treasuring your bond with them :handshake: :heart:

The pleasure is mine- thanks for answering! I always love hearing about what others are working on or studying. It helps to share the inspiration around! :grinning: :sparkles:

Blessed be, Victoria!
