This is probably going to be such an unpopular opinion for Tumblr but here goes…
Witchcraft is genuinely a craft or skill that one must work on to succeed in. It also has many inner workings and practices including mysteries that have been passed down certain traditions for decades.
It’s completely acceptable to be a solitary witch and genuinely encouraged to make spells of your own.
However, the general theme that seems to constantly be missing from Tumblrs constant use and advertisement of witchcraft is any actual history behind it. Tumblr initiates people into occultism and witchcraft with really general information and cutesy spells without explaining to people the dense history of witchcraft or the learning process.
A lot of witchcraft has been kept close to the chest over the years, some of which you will never find through personal research because of oaths to secrecy in certain communities. Tumblr is to the brim with skimmed knowledge on a lot of paths and I urge anyone serious about witchcraft to go way beyond it.
I’m mainly talking to young people as the generations that brought back witchcraft, beginning in the 1960’s in the UK, are not as open as the people here and a lot of them hold secrets or knowledge you’re going to have to fight for. The difference between witch communities on tumblr and irl are striking and it’s all about your research into known names and whose who of the revival.
