solitary witch

Witch Confession:

I really wish my peers in real life realized how serious and important witchcraft is to me. This isn’t something I’ve started overnight. I’ve been in solitary practice for 5 years (with a few breaks, I’ll add), and this is nothing new. I didn’t all of a sudden evolve into a spirit worker or a healer like a fucking pokemon. I’ve just now come out of the broom closet, and I don’t think people realized I was ever even locked in there. My skills have developed over time. I’ve grown from the awkward teen medium into the multi-talented Witch you see before you. This is a way for me to harness my own energy and balance myself. Peers have even joked that I “look kind of witchy”, yet when I come out as an actual witch to someone, I get a confused stare into space. People want to make light of witchcraft to compliment my aesthetic, but don’t care to understand the power and beauty in the real thing. Acting distanced and uninterested when I try to explain what I do DEFINITELY doesn’t make me wanna show you. It’s really discouraging when you think someone might be intrigued, and they don’t care enough to even have sigils explained.

I just wish I had one witch to hang out with. I crave to interact with someone who will take the craft, and me, seriously.

“As wildwitches, we correlate the external energies we become sensitive to with our environs. All of the myriad manifestations of nature’s bounty become allies with whom we can work. They are partners who are willing to be representatives. Ours is a very symbolic way of expressing our feelings, one that relies heavily on the cooperation of Mother Earth and all her children. We may be solitary but we are never alone in our endeavours.”

A note to all witches:
  • It’s okay if you don’t practice your craft every single day
  • It’s okay if you take a break from your craft or religion for however long you need
  • It’s okay if you don’t believe or worship in all the gods in your religion 
  • It’s okay if you don’t acknowledge your deity/god/goddess every single day 
  • It’s okay if you don’t want to/you don’t feel ready to use your own spells/sigils/rituals etc.
  • It’s okay if you forget a full moon
  • It’s okay if you skip/forget about a sabbat.

In short, take your time, do what makes you feel comfortable and never let anyone pressure you or make you feel bad about your magickal choices.

Stay safe and blessed be )O(

You want to know one of the best things about being a witch?

Your intent is what matters most. You can basically “cheat” on almost any ingredient to a spell you’d need and it will work just as well because your intent is the same, if not more so intense because of a feeling of “half-assing” something else.

Different types of Witches

Augury Witch: Similar to a shaman in practice, the augury witch will help to direct those on a spiritual quest by interpreting the signs and symbols the traveler encounters. The term derives from the official Roman augurs, whose function was not to foretell the future but to discover whether or not the gods approved of a proposed course of action by interpreting signs or omen such as the appearance of animals sacred to the gods. It is important to note that augury witches are not “fortune tellers”, as their gifts are of prophecy and not divination. In the context of prophecy, in his Scottish play Shakespeare’s witches appear as augury witches.

Ceremonial Witch: One who combines both the practices of witchcraft and ceremonial magic. They may use a combination of disciplines drawn from the Old Ways, but will often employ more scientific precisions such as sacred mathematics and quantum mysticism as well. They will also call upon an eclectic blend of spiritual entities, leaning towards archetypal figures representative of the energies they wish to manifest. They are more spiritually centered than most ceremonial magicians, using an Earth-centered path with focus on the Divine within.

Eclectic Witch: An individual approach in which the witch picks and chooses from many different traditions and creates a personalized form of witchcraft that meets their individual needs and abilities. They do not follow a particular religion or tradition, but study and learn from many different systems and use what works best for them.

Faery Witch: An eclectic witch who seeks to commune with faery folk and nature spirits in their magick workings. They have no organization or tradition and it has developed of its own accord through common practice. (Not to be confused with the ‘Feri Movement’ [see below])

Green Witch: A practitioner of of witchcraft whose focus is on the use of natural items and places. The goal of the Green Witch is upon achieving magic through communion with Mother Nature and using Her energies.

Hedge Witch: Hedgecraft is a path that is somewhat shamanic in nature, as they are practitioners of an Earth-based spirituality. These are the ones who engage in spirit flight and journey into the Otherworld. They can, in this capacity, be very powerful midwives and healers. A bird of one kind or another is usually associated with the Hedge Witch, most commonly the raven and the goose. The term “hedge” signified the boundary of the village and represents the boundary that exists between this world and the spiritual realm.

Hereditary Witch: Also known as a Family Tradition Witch, it is someone who has been taught “The Old Ways ” as a tradition passed down through the generations of their family. Though you may be born into a family with the tradition, you can not be born a witch, a conscious decision and acceptance of “The Craft” is necessary to become a witch.

Kitchen (Cottage) Witch: A practitioner of witchcraft who uses the tools at hand to work their spells and create their rituals and who deals with the practical sides of religion, magick and the Elements of the Earth. Some who hear the term “Kitchen Witch” may think it is a magickal art confined only to the kitchen or cooking, but it is much more. It is about the finding of the sacred in everyday tasks, no matter how mundane they may appear to be. An increasingly popular type of witchcraft, it is about working with the energies of nature to make the hearth and home a secure and sacred place.

Solitary Witch (Solitaire): This is one who practices alone, without a coven and without following any particular tradition. Sometimes they are among that class of natural witches whose skills have been developed in previous lifetimes. There is a legend among witches that after practicing for several lifetimes, the knowledge of “The Craft” is awakened upon passing puberty.
