Are you Haexan as well? We are called many things. For some we are hæxan, witches, hexen, streghe, sorcières, brujas, nornir, veneficas, gwradchod, ... Others think of us as wiccan. We do admit that there are some similarities, but we are not wiccan. So what are we then? Does it really matter? We have no special name. If we might use a sobriquet then 'Hæxan' would do the trick. We live amongst the people. They are afraid of us and they keep distance because we are perceived as 'different'.

i’ve been called many things along the lines of witch. some good and some bad.

i think i am comfortable not having a title, aside from something self appointed. I live, after all in the Emerald City - magical titles are easy to imagine.

so what are we then? indeed it may not matter. we will always be special and they will always keep their distance.

I did a bit of research about Hæxan, and it led me to your other blog. From there I saw that you were posting about a lot of mathematicians and physicists. If Hæxans were witches, and I’m pretty sure I’m not a witch.

It would be actually pretty awesome if I was. But apparently I’m not, since I can’t do any magic, spells, etc.

Between is this some kind of an organisation?

I tried to find some information about ‘haexan’, but I couldn’t (or not much anyways). Is it some kind of a witch, is that correct? If so, then I’m not. Infact, for the time being, I don’t know what I believe. I just think that there are a lot more between heaven and earth, than what we can see. I’m very open.. and I respect other people and their beliefs, although I’m not necessarily agree with all of it. :)

Hæxan and Goths

Hæxan and Goths both like black. The key is visibility. Goths want to attract attention to the dark and macabre; Hæxan are invisible for the eye. Gothic fashion is stereotyped as conspicuously dark, eerie, mysterious, complex and exotic. Typical gothic fashion includes dyed black hair, dark eyeliner, black fingernails and black period-styled clothing. Styles are often borrowed from the Elizabethan, Victorian or medieval period and often express pagan, occult or other religious imagery. Hæxan are the opposite. Maybe you can spot something odd about us, but it is very difficult to recognize Hæxan from the ordinary. It is all in the subtle details. Sure, Hæxan have an eye for style, bespoke, texture, art,… but that is no Hæxan privilege. Hæxan goes beyond just clothes. Altough Hæxan wear stylish clothes, it is the darkness inside that counts. We like natural tissues and high-end touch. Style but no fashion. But Hæxan are not trying to impress other people. Coming to this realization is incredibly valuable. Hæxan do not want to be recognize as Hæxan. All Hæxan like the quote of Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian : ‘Pour vivre heureux, vivons cachés’ : “In order to live happily, live hidden”.
