Hi there, I've been a solitary, eclectic pagan for about 20 years, off & on. I have always felt the draw of the Goddess & have acknowledged Her even when I really wasn't practicing. I'm not Wiccan & I really don't strictly follow a Celtic or Asatru path. I'm not into a lot of New Age hoo-ha that has infiltrated Paganism. I'm currently reading into the 1734 Tradition & Clan of Tubal Cain. I read books on Traditional Witchcraft, the Occult, The Robert Cochrane Letters, Evan John Jones, Doreen Valiente, Robin Artisson, Peter Paddon. I'm on a few Yahoo groups devoted to these topics, as well as others. I tend to stay away Llewellyn books, as I tend to find them on the "Fluffy" side of things. I'm currently learning all about the lost art of Enchantment through gesture & Visceral Magick. I am also a student of Southern & Appalachian Conjure.
I know it was a week ago, but I wanted to share with you all my Samhain pix of some of the cool stuff I got at work this year. Skulls were a big thing this year with me and a few items are remaining on my altar.
So, I decided to get back into the whole blogging thing. This is going to be Candles & Wicks 2.0 or Candles & Wicks Reloaded. My studies have changed in the past 2 years, I' m still studying Conjure & folk magic, as well as Traditional Witchcraft (1734, Clan of Tubal Cain). Gone is the naïve witch who let others take advantage or the person who was so unsure of what path to follow.
I hope you will still follow me on my never-ending journey of learning my craft.
