Okay, I know and understand that Wicca itself isn't hundreds of thousands years old and that it is incorrect in saying that it is. Is it correct, however, to state that Wicca draws from and has roots in religions that are that old? And what exactly is the "Old Religion"? I recently read a book that talks about these concepts and want to read about and see what others think..

thepaganstudygrouppage:

Wicca draws upon practices that are old, but they are not all that ancient or unified. The “Old Religion” often touted about is referring to some sort of unified Mother Goddess witchcraft religion that dates to the cavemen days.

Wicca is great, it has some problem areas, but it is good for people. On the other hand, it needs to be understood that Wicca itself is from the 1950s in origin, and that since the 1990s, there has been a real boom in false information being spread in the dime a dozen new age literature.

Look to these resources, they are fairly decent (credit to natural-magics):

  • Wicca for the Rest of Us
  • Wicca Resources
  • Wicca for Beginners by Thea Sabin
  • Witchcraft Today by Gerald Gardner (the founder of Wicca)
  • The Meaning of Witchcraft by Gerald Gardner
  • The Spiral Dance by Starhawk (most recent edition only, old editions have inaccurate info that has since been updated)

Okay, I need to break my hiatus to answer this question because a lot of Pagans and Wiccans forget or don’t know one crucial detail: Wicca is Golden Dawn lite, and it substitutes traditional ceremonial magic for witchcraft while maintaining similar ritual structures. Gardner was a friend of Aleister Crowley, who was an initiate of the Hermetic Order Of The Golden Dawn.
Just thought I should put that out there.

Fuck you pill poppers

Fuck every single one of you spoiled piece of shit, entitled, white kids in the Ritalin tag. Fuck you for giving people like me a bad rap, making it more difficult for me to find doctors to prescribe it to me when I need this medication in order to function. I hope that you fuck yourself over.

Reason why I’m scared if switching doctors. What if they don’t want to prescribe it to me.

If you got diagnosed by a psyche, ask to have a copy of the session notes. Also, don’t be afraid of standing up for yourself. There can be some dick doctors out there, but you have every right to defend what you have experienced as needing medication. They have usually always have valid reasons for what they do but they might not be getting the whole picture from you unless you can accurately convey it. Have no fear, fellow Shiny. I have been there more than once.

Going on a tumblr hiatus starting now.

See you guys later.

Making Your Enochian Tablets, Pt 1

enochian101:

The first part of practical Enochian magic is definitely not your first skyring session or your first evocation. It is the making of your first Enochian tablets.

To clarify, there are two different types of Enochian tablets. The first, which I am talking about, are the from the Enochian Watchtowers. The other, which I will probably explain at length another time, are the tablets associated with the Enochian Heptarchy.

Continue after the jump.

GUYS. I MADE A THING.

I’m secretly envious of the people on here that make friends so fast :/ I know that irl I have epic bitchface (not *always* intentional), but idk if that somehow translates to how I seem online :S

Make a video on being an empath, yes or no?

I was thinking about making one to offer my perspective since every other source is mostly new agey. Opinions?

Is it just me or do some people use the GD oath to avoid criticism? Like, learn to not take everything so personally.

First day to take 10mg of Ritalin„„ lets see how this goes lol 

You might experience some anxiety, but this is normal and it goes away after about three days on the new dosage. Just remind yourself that it’s the medication that is making your anxiety bad and any thoughts you have probably aren’t an accurate reflection of reality. I’m happy for you, though. Ritalin was a godsend. You should be proud of yourself, too. I have other tips too. Just send me an ask if you have any questions.
