    female vs male witches bothers me even more than the white vs black witches crap that’s still floating around in this day and age.

  2. Anonymous said: Do you recommend Raymond Buckland for Wicca beginners?

    natural-magics:

    thepaganstudygrouppage:

    No, I would never recommend Buckland for beginners, not only did he break his oaths and divulge information he had no right to share, he has also written books with historical inaccuracies. His book on “Scottish” witchcraft declares that the ancient Picts practiced Wicca and he also has a book on “g*psy” magic that is a disgusting and inaccurate “representation” of the cultures slurred with the word g*ypsy. He would not be a good resource for beginners.

    Thea Sabin is a nice author for beginners.

This alone is what I wish for you:  knowledge. 
To understand each desire has an edge, 
To know we are responsible for the lives 
We change.  No faith comes without cost, 
No one believes without dying. 
Now for the first time 
I see clearly the trail you planted, 
What ground opened to waste, 
Though you dreamed a wealth 
Of flowers. 
There are no curses—only mirrors 
Held up to the souls of gods and mortals. 
And so I give up this fate, too. 
Believe in yourself, 
Go ahead—see where it gets you.
