Witchy things about me

I saw this on Crafty Jewitch and thought it was a great idea. I’m too sensitive to talk about anything else right now.

A few witchy facts about me:

My Names: A Mystical ~

Mostly I use Cynthia. But I have used Rosemary Moss long ago and far away. And I have one that is circle bound.

Colorful Animal Totems / Spirit Guides / Mythic Totems

First and foremost, Stag. Then Crow, Spider, Snake (even though I have a true phobia, this one is still a guide), Rabbit, Mouse, Grasshopper…

Primary Dieties / Archetypes

In the order they came into my life…

Female: Hekate, Epona, Nemetona, Morrigan, Brighid, Vesta, Lady of the Wood, Mary M, Kuan Yin, Aphrodite.

Male: Herne, Cernunnos, Lord of the Hunt, Jeshua, Lugh

Broom closet

I am out of the broom closet with some folks. I don’t advertise, I wear a stealth pentagram (it has a triple moon covering it), it is something I share with folks who have earned my trust. But then there’s my blog. But only folks who know me or who are pagans/witches find my blog. The rest are still strangers.

I knew i was a witch when, at 9 or 10, I read Sybil Leek’s Diary of a Witch. It was almost 20 more years before I found other people like me.

Favorite Pagan holy day ~

Samhain hands down…

Divination ~

I collect Tarot and Oracle decks. I love the artwork and use it to inspire me all the time. But I only actually use one or two favorites for divination on a regular basis, the others as they call to me. DruidCraft Tarot and the Tao Oracle.

Gems ~

I have worn blue moonstones for as long as I can remember. That and amber.

Astrology ~

I am a Cancer with a Libra rising and a Gemini moon, four of my planets are in Leo including mercury, and Saturn is in Capricorn. (Now I get it I hear you say…)

Favorite botanicals ~

lavender, rosemary, blackberry, lilac,

Favorite oils

bergamot, vanilla, lavender, patchouli, rose

Favorite curios ~

spiral seashell, holey stone, antler handled curved bladed knife, fragrance burner

Sacred places I would like to see ~

Stonehenge, Glastonbury, boy that’s hard. Most places are spiritual to me so I’ll take any I can get…

  1. By Mary M., I’m guessing you mean Mary Magdalene? I love her, and in fact, I have a Magdalene tattoo on my arm, a reminder of compassion, deep love, sensuality and clarity.

    Ms. Kuan Yin as amazing, isn’t she?

    I had a really sweet experience with the Morrighan as a young witch. I was all into her, because she was seemingly darkly glamorous, and she was really sweet to me and everything. Finally, she looked at me and said something like, “Honey, I don’t think you’re really one of mine.”

    It was really wonderful and still makes me smile.

    Oh, yes, it’s all about Grandmother Spider and her peeps.

  2. hi greg! I do mean Mary Magdalene. How cool you have her on your arm. She reminds me of the same things you mention as well as being a powerful woman that so many were afraid of that they maligned her for centuries and yet she survived in tact. Someone who remains, abides, and persevere’s against all odds.

    When someone recently told me about Kuan Yin’s sword of clarity and cutting away the BS I fell in love with her all over again.

    I adore that comment from the Morrighan. Awesome. When she left a dying crow at my doorstep for me to usher gently into the otherworld and then months later left a a dead crow near my home (I gathered the bones when they were all that remained, my connection with her, which had been assumed before was made clear. and I realized that she isn’t necessarily a bloody war goddess of death but also something like the Celtic Hekate who carries the torch as they find their way…

    I call all too many things Minerva and it is certainly part of my name, beweaver. I do weave. 🙂

    Bright blessings to you!
