Paganism, Wicca and Witches
« on: February 06, 2018, 10:51:56 AM »
Hello there! I haven't used this site yet, but if you didn't see my introduction - Hi! I'm Minerva, but you can call me Minnie or Latte.

This is a topic I wanted to create to talk to likeminded people and to ask a question. So if you're Pagan, Wicca or into the craft of witches, I'd like to talk to you because I'm a newbie at all this (and please tell me if I get anything wrong because I am still learning the ways).

To start off, I think I sit comfortably into the kitchen witch (hearth witch, cottage witch) sect. When I was about 12 or 13 (I'm 19 right now), I became interested in what my older sister Deedee did. She was 17 and was very into oils and tonics for cleansing and called herself a kitchen witch. Now she is 24 and is Pagan, but no longer calls herself a kitchen witch. To be honest we haven't seen each other in quite a few months so I'm not sure if she's still practising it or whatever. It's a shame really. I'd have liked to have someone around to help me out.

About five months ago I started to call myself a kitchen witch. I'm still stumbling around and trying to find my footing in the community, but so far I really enjoy it.

Are there any witches in the Watership Down community? Or in the very least, any witches here at all?

While I don't know much about the topic at hand, I'd be very interesting on learning from you if you wanted to expand on it :)

I'm sure someone here mentioned being into it as well, though.

Oh, no you wouldn't want to learn from me! As I said, I'm still very new to the whole witch scene. I'm not even sure if I'd call myself Wiccan or Pagan, so I'm not too sure about all this. But that mainly comes from being uneducated about those two topics.

But if you want to know more about kitchen witchery, I'm your girl! For me, I usually have salts and oils in water when I clean the floors or when I wash my clothes to cleanse them. I also place herbs throughout my house for luck and stuff of the like. I also have planters on my balcony with pretty herbs and flowers, and I have a few charms bags sitting around my house :)

Kitchen witchery, if you didn't guess from what I just wrote, focuses on using magic in everyday items. Even something as simple as making a cup of tea is a ritual to most of us, and it's very warm and friendly. I mainly deal with cleansing. It makes it feel lighter in my house I believe.

I think we do not have witches here, rather many bunnies. And the only witches I know are from movies and series like Harry Potter.   :buttercup

I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

I appreciate the explanation, Latte! This is all very interesting stuff and I love it :)

That's an excellent anime, Acacia.
