Good luck! I like the book You are Psychic for beginners. Check it out.

I would think it'd be possible on a hormonal level, but conjuring up a uterus and some ovaries would be difficult. Medical science hasn't managed it yet and it seems to be well ahead of magic on the material level. As with all medical things, I like to go with a combination approach. Everything should be looked at from a body, mind, spirit perspective, that means, doctors, therapists and magic working hand in hand. And religion if you like. Or not if you don't.

This site is very informative, loving it, I am a Pisces with powers that I have been recently openly investigating. Wish I had better direction that I need to go, but I will keep searching. I know what I know, just want and need to know more and more. Wish me luck with my progress.

The writers' guidelines and quality standards specifically charge our writers to leave the opinions out of the reporting. Whether it's a good idea or not is irrelevant to the article, but it is worth discussing in the comments, which are, of course, immune to the prohibition on opinion. I have edited the article to mention that the practice is controversial, but further elaboration is welcome, right here in comments.

As the owner of this website, it is up to me to decide what is appropriate to this forum. Gender neutrality also exists in "you" which was previously plural, just like "they".

"Gender Neutrality"

…does not exist in the English language, aside from the neuter pronoun "it". Please take the SJW stuff to a more appropriate place, such as Tumblr or Reddit. Thank you.

"Many Western Magickal traditions, including many Wicca and Witchcraft traditions have adopted the chakra system into their practice"

Bad idea. We're not Indians and we're not Hindus. This is stealing from another culture, and polluting our own systems with foreign, non-Craft content, at the same time. The ancient Craft of our own ancestors is more than sufficient for us. Leave other cultures in peace and "Drink from your own well".

Automatic writing might help you, but if you're suffering from depression, you should also talk to your doctor. To do automatic writing, you should write by hand. It can take a while to get started, just start writing whatever's on your mind until you start to feel "in the zone". Then you can start writing questions and you may find that you'll start writing answers too. I have been doing it this way since I was a young teenager, it's not hard if you can get your brain out of the way. I have written many things this way that feels more like taking dictation, so it's possible that if you've got what you lost in your subconscious (and you do) that you may be able to access it this way. You should also do some research in self-hypnosis.

Just an FYI that there is an error on this page. The Chaldean Sequence/Order should read: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon. You have listed Saturn twice.

http://www.witchvox.com has listings in many locations to help witches connect with each each other. Meetup.com is also a good resource for meeting people. You can also visit your local metaphysical shop, they often host gatherings and workshops for witches and many maintain a bulletin board to local groups to communicate with the public, and see if your local Unitarian Church has an associated CUUPS (Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans) chapter.

A Witch's altar is very personal and what you put on it should be what is meaningful to you and what is useful to you. There are some specific guidelines in some traditions, but if you belong to one of them, you'd know better than me.
Many altars honor more than one God. I have Zeus and Hera on my main altar, and I have Hades, Persephone and Hecate on my ancestor altar. I know that many of the Roman Gods absorbed the lore of their Greek counterparts and I know that Aphrodite, who corresponds to Venus, and Hermes, who corresponds to Mercury, had a child called Hermaphroditus who embodied both male and female. They weren't married or partnered, but they also didn't conflict (though some versions of the story say that she was manipulated into the affair), so if these are the Gods who speak to you, there's no reason they can't share altar space.

Hecate is the Goddess of the crossroads. It's generally symbolic of 3 ways, past/present/future, Earth/Sky/Sea, etc. But you leave offerings for Hecate at the Crossroads because that is her sacred place.

There are other symbolisms of crossroads independent of Hecate that come from the practice of hanging criminals at crossroads, so that as many people as possible would see them and get the warning. This made crossroads creepy and led to the belief that evil spirits hang out at crossroads (it's interesting to speculate on the fact that Hecate's association with unfriendly spirits correlates, as this was a late addition to her lore, and which came first.). When all magic became associated with evil spirits, it follows that you'd go looking for evil spirits if you wanted magical intervention, and if they hang out at crossroads, it makes sense.

Crossroads are also an in-between place. In-between places are where you meet with spirits.

I would like to know the significance behind leaving things at the crossroads or discarding things at the crossroads?

by Nicole (guest), 05 Jan 2017 20:28

If you have a purpose for doing so, I don't see why not.

Nobody knows how it was specifically celebrated, so any ceremonies would have to be reconstructed. Nova Roma has done some work in this area http://www.novaroma.org/nr/Carmentalia

You can substitute anything. It's all symbolic. It doesn't need to be special ink. The most important part of that spell is that you write your wish as an affirmation in the present tense (Using her example, you would write "I am cool") but you also have to visualize yourself in the position you've written (i.e. being cool, whatever that looks like) and feel what it would feel like to be there.

East is the direction of new beginnings and possibility- where the sun comes up. But the wind is going to take the ashes in whatever direction it happens to be going. You can also dispose of your ashes in moving water. The idea is that it's moving, spreading out into the Universe.

Remember that after you make your wish, you have to do concrete work to make it happen.
