Don't be shy. Chances are, someone else is wondering the same thing.

Here's a few suggestions for the best experience for all.

  1. Please keep your questions on topic. (The topic is witchcraft and magick.)
  2. Please do not ask questions along the lines of "Is there a spell for this?" The answer is yes; there is a spell for just about every purpose. (Note: You can contact Dawn directly for help with this.)
  3. Please do not ask overly personal questions or include the real names of other people in your questions. These will be deleted without further consideration as will any post containing a phone number, address or email address or any personally identifying information. If your question is personal, you may wish to contact Dawn directly.
  4. This is not the free psychic network. Please do not ask for predictions or readings. Questions of this nature will be deleted.
  5. Please search keywords related to your topic on the Witchipedia (search is in the upper right hand corner), peruse our glossary and look through other questions on this page before asking your question. It may have already been answered.
  6. This is not the classified section. We don't have a classified section. I suggest http://www.witchvox.com . If you are looking to connect with folks, that's the place to go.
  7. Please restrict your punctuation to the grammatically required minimum. The number of exclamation points and question marks you can manage to fit into a title or paragraph is not proportional to the speed or accuracy of our response.

If you require personal assistance, you may speak with Dawn Black directly, subject to her availability and a small fee for her time.

Is it possible to be a Christian (believe in God) and still be a witch?

(1 replies)

I've always felt pulled towards witchcraft since a very young age, but I grew up in church and believing in God. I was always told that I should not consider witchcraft because it was "of Satan" and I would be punished and sent to Hell.
I, however, do not believe this (or I don't want to at least) So, in short, is it possible for me to believe in God but practice witchcraft as well?

Is it possible to have a familiar like Salem Saberhagen ?

(1 replies)

In the tv series " Sabrina, the Teenage Witch", Sabrina is aided by a familar named
Salem Saberhagen. He was a former witch that was turned into a cat as a punishment and he acts her familar, teaching how to work with her magick. I was just wondering if it was even possible to have a talking cat familiar because for some reason I connect with him and I've always envisoned my familar as being quite similar to him. (Apologies if this comes across as dense)

Is it weird to create my own path in witchcraft and name it?

(1 replies)

I've been practicing some sort of Wiccan-influenced witchcraft for about 15 years off and on. I realize that this type of witchcraft isn't for me anymore. Recently, I decided to create my own type of witchcraft path that focuses on a new way of doing magic (something separate from Wicca) and instead of calling myself "eclectic" (I hate that word) I've used a better description. Do you think this is weird? I'm solitary, so I have no idea if this is a weird thing to do in paganism. Plus, I'm not really teaching anyone my type of witchcraft except on my blog.

Is mugwort making my muscles sore?

(2 replies)

I have been drinking mugwort tea every night before meditation for three nights in a row now. I add honey and pumpkin spice (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg) to is for flavor. I have been having good dreams not all lucid and I can't remember them all. But I feel like maybe the mugwort is giving me sore muscles. I had done research before buying and using it and haven't heard anything about sore muscles other than if you put some in your shoes it's supposed to help with preventing sore muscles but I did hear that it can make a woman start her period or go into labor (don't have to worry about that) so I was thinking maybe it has an effect on the muscles and that's why my muscles have been feeling like I'm training for a weight lifting competition? Idk Any advice?

I was raised catholic, and the idea of demons and stuff frightens me. ( Please don't get offended by anything I'm saying, I'm not great with words).

Pennies from Heaven or...

(5 replies)

Long one here but I feel detail is important.

Well… Here goes: I see stuff.all the time. Corner of my eye etc. Pennies and dimes entities (?) leave me - tho I was never convinced of the pennies til last week when I was sobbing; "why won't you help me?!" kind of thing. That day I stopped crying and got in the shower, ate lunch, felt better, didn't think on it til I went upstairs and there on my bed was a fng PENNY. Right in the middle.

Ok I said. I get it, you're there. What or who you are I dunno but thanks for listening..

Yesterday, I just got the feeling I should write a letter. I should tell you that a) it's addressed to to who or what I'm not sure. Spirit, angels, whatever it is I should call what I feel us there when I pray or connect. And b) I've written these before, shorter versions, and the one I burned and buried came true…

So yesterday I wrote another letter, then read it aloud. Asked for help with x, said thanks, then put it aside. Didn't think much of it really just a sense of completion.

Some time passed I ended up taking a nap.

I woke up to blinding, flashing light where I'd left the letter. I looked out the window like it was car lights, nothing there. The lights were in working order. I thought the house was on fire (the electric would go haywire right?) but nothing.

There was no logical reason for the light.. Except… Well.. This entity that I have asked for help from that leaves me pennies.

What do you think other than I'm nuts…
