    Hello,

    Goddess yes!

    Tarot card collecting can become a bit of an addiction for some.. *ahem*.. and before you know it your partner is taking away your credit cards.

    Do an etsy search, or if you were addicted like I was addicted do 5 of them a day, and watch for those rare hand made/painted decks to show up that belong on no other place in the world but your alte………. ~sighs~

    To answer your question, yes, you can paint your own, try and research what you can about each individual you are painting though,  and do them right. 

    And if you do (and can find Etsy) low and behold someone.. *cough*  might just spend an obscene amount of money to buy them… not that I’d know anything about that………………. ………… ….. …..

    Hello,

    And thank you,

    In recorded history not one religion has done more harm, slaughter of innocence, torture and genocide than Christianity. And before the hate mail starts (because we have covered this before and it will) please pick up any world history book and read.   Debates are good, mindless hate filled screaming about worshiping a book is not.

    That being said I thank you for having an open mind, we are not here to harm, you will never see pagans or wiccans knocking on doors to convert, most of us love our family, our neighbors, our world, and our privacy. We tend to believe in live and let live,  and for most a peaceful existence is all we have ever asked. As for us personally we certainly don’t claim to know everything, and have never ask once for questions to be sent to us, they just started and we answered.  It’s a good way to learn a lot and I feel we should never stop learning as learning is growing and if you are not here to grow then whats the point? But advice is just advice, and caution is key. With health questions especially our advice is not meant to take the place of seeing a trained medical professional, can’t stress that enough. ;).

    Hello,

     No, they do not need to be straight.

     In all honesty I’ve only known one witch who uses a wand, and it’s not like you have seen watching the movies, she uses it as a focal point calling corners and to draw circles in the ground as she has a bad back.  But it is very pretty. Hers is a wrapped willow branch btw, so I suppose it is the epitome of wobbly. Mostly it stays in the house and she yells at her grandkids to stop playing with it, ( yes a witches life is nothing if not glamorous).

I am not a practicing Wiccan but I do believe and am learning more everyday. Your blog is very helpful and you helped me see things in a new perspective when I asked myself if I had done everything possible to resolve the situation and the facet that it is against the rules to take away ones free will... Thank you again for sharing your wisdom

    You’re welcome, and thank you for the lovely message. :)

    pyrokittycat said: When someone asks "what is wicca?" How do you explain it?

    Hello,

    You’d be surprised how rarely we get this, or perhaps not, it’s not like we advertise or anything and both of us identify with being pagan, although I tend to be more eclectic.

    The wiki definition follows;

    Wicca (English pronunciation: /ˈwɪkə/) is a modern pagan, witchcraft religion. It was developed in England during the first half of the 20th century and it was introduced to the public in 1954 by Gerald Gardner, a retired British civil servant. It draws upon a diverse set of ancient pagan and 20th century hermetic motifs for its theological structure and ritual practice. The word witch derives from Middle English wicche, Old English wicce (/ˈwɪttʃe/) (feminine) “witch” and wicca (/ˈwɪttʃɑ/) (masculine) “wizzard”.[1]

    Wicca is a diverse religion with no central authority or figure defining it. It is divided into various lineages and denominations, referred to as traditions, each with its own organisational structure and level of centralisation. Due to its decentralized nature, there is some disagreement over what actually constitutes Wicca. Some traditions, collectively referred to as British Traditional Wicca, strictly follow the initiatory lineage of Gardner and consider the term Wicca to apply only to such lineaged traditions, while other eclectic traditions do not.

    Wicca is typically duotheistic, worshipping a god and goddess traditionally viewed as a mother goddess and horned god. These two deities are sometimes viewed as facets of a greater pantheistic godhead. However, beliefs range from hard polytheism to even monotheism. Wiccan celebration follows approximately eight seasonally based festivals known as Sabbats. An unattributed statement known as the Wiccan Rede is the traditional basis of Wiccan morality. Wicca often involves the ritual practice of magic, though it is not always necessary.

    I’m not sure I agree with what is written above but thats fairly typical of wiki, and neither here nor there.

    The few times we have been asked about being pagan, I’ve been honest, patient and started with forget everything you have been told, I don’t worship the devil, actually  the devil as Christians have named him isn’t really a devil  all,  more a demon with a bad attitude and a serious superiority complex. 

    This usually breaks the ice and leads to lots of questions, I tend to answer a few, sticking to generalizations rather than personal practices, then recommend reading for them to learn about it on their own time.

    Patience is key, remember most people have been programed since they were small children that pagans were devil worshipers and witches are evil children eating ilk. Luckily most people have enough tact to not bring up a persons religious practices publicly but it does happen from time to time, if it is uncomfortable for you to talk about simply saying so is acceptable too. The only time I go into greater detail is if it is a good friend who finally worked up the courage to ask about my strange altars and such, if I feel I can trust them not to judge or  run away screaming in fear then I will open up more and give them the grand tour.

    It is a risk but if they truly care about you most don’t give a hoot, honestly do you care which church your friends go to if they go?

    Nope, me either.

    Blessed Be
