UP THE WITCHY PUNX!
36ish year old self employed, vegan, punk, anarchist, feminist, zinester, mostly straight, white, cis-lady agnostic secular witch. I'd like to know more witchy punx, although I'm pretty solitary when it comes to my own practices. I love DIY projects, dark mori, building altars, making charms, zines, travel, my house and home and things grow in my garden.
Witchcraft is the ultimate DIY project.

Congratulations, you almost made me mad..
Witchcraft is a secular practice. It is very much separate from religion until deliberately blended. Thus any religion can be followed alongside the practice.
Before you state that the practice of magic is against Christianity i am going to refer your ignorant ass to THIS post here; an ask i answered previously along the lines of the subject. It may also be a good idea to read THIS post here; an article i wrote up justifying the use of magic from within a Christian paradigm. Please take the time to read them as it may stimulate you enough to cause the growth of some few braincells.
In summary, the terms ‘witchcraft’ and ‘witch’ are reclaimed, there have been Christian practitioners of folk-magic in the British isles for as early as the 15th Century, therefore the exact definitions have changed, and personally i feel they no longer apply.
Excuse me, i have to go and act like a witch now..
When I say “Go be a Witch” or “Go do Witchery” or any variation on that theme it’s not so much about action as how that action affects you.
If you do something woo-woo and your heart gets all wild and free? That thing. Do that. If you feel a mad rushing like you’re breathing in far more than your lungs can hold - like you’re inhaling holy fire and it’s spreading through your veins. If you’re teetering on that edge where it feels like something is about to happen? That. If you come down from it full of joy you cannot explain and a sense of fulfillment? That’s what I’m talking about.
And while I don’t truck with the line of “(insert thing here) is whatever you want it to be” YOUR craft is whatever you want it to be. Take away the labels, take away the need to fit into a mold and do what makes you powerful.
And before anyone starts saying “Oh my gosh but what if it’s this really harmful- ” Stop. You know I don’t mean that kind of thing and you equally know it is not my job to police the internet. GO BE A WITCH.
