You need at least thirteen stones (not big rocks) which are about the same size and shape.You’re going to put them in a bag you can shake up a bit so you don’t want to have something too heavy or clunky to carry around. If you like tiny and micro you could work with little pebbles (pessomancy) but you need to be able to tell one from the other.… Read the rest
Many people don’t take this seriously, thinking a religion inspired from a movie is just as fictional as the movie. But, what is a religion, if not something inspired by something else, essentially.
How far is it from Pagan/Wiccan/Witch ideals? There is a lot in common including:

I have taken information and some quotes from the site and added my thoughts along the way.… Read the rest
The idea of the Wiccan shrine/ altar is to give yourself a real, physical connection to your spirituality and beliefs. Something you can reach out and touch, see, hear, taste and even smell. A Wiccan altar should appeal to your senses, be something you enjoy and give you a feeling of being connected to the Earth, nature, any deities you choose, and life itself.… Read the rest
The Book of Shadows (BOS, for short) are the notes Pagans/ Witches/ Wiccans have made along their journey of life and learning.
A Grimoire is a book of magic, spells and techniques.

The solitary Witch, Wiccan or Pagan is alone by choice. There are many reasons for making this choice to be a Witch or Wiccan on your own. There are also lots of ways solitary Witches can share notes, talk and get new ideas from other Witches, when they want to.
Solitary Witches tend to be eclectic, they have their own vision and ideals for the path they follow.… Read the rest
