International: Y/N Yes
How many Pen Pals you have/want: o/3
A brief about you: I have been interested in the craft since I was 12 years old. I’m 23, still practising on the days where I feel the most energy around me. Something inside my soul, tells me that this is who I am supposed to be :3
Any other info you want to share: I would love nothing more than to write to practising friends! Or just to basically talk, i’m as open as the sky. Blessed be!
Name you wish to Exchange by: Any version of Willow, Shadow, Jessica, Raven, or any name that you think feels fitting. There’s really only one or two names in the entire universe I wouldn’t want to be called by.
Country of Residence: United States of America
Languages: English, Latin, y un poco de espanol. (Among others - but those are the fluent ones.)
Number of Penpals I seek: 1 to infinity.
Some things about myself: I’ve had half a dozen penpals throughout my life and I’m currently keeping correspondence with one of my dearest friends all the way in Ireland.
~ My spirituality has no specific name, but it runs closest to a combination of Celtic paganism with touches of Zen Buddhism, Cherokee Medicine, and Finnish paganism. (Mielikki is my ‘patron Goddess’, if you can call her that.)
~ “Witchy” practices: healing, empathy, mysticism (union with the universe/the divine), astral Travel, Druidism, magicks of all sorts (moving energy and the study of its source - light, dark, chaos, angelic, shamanistic, you name it).
~ I’m here to meet anyone who can share similar interests or introduce me to something else new and intriguing - the unfamiliar is always fascinating.
~ I’m a writer, and though there is little I won’t touch on, I can be subtly evasive or I can write page upon page of information and explanation. I’m not very good at small-talk or keeping it brief when there’s more information to share.
~ The physical facts: I’m female, 19, a college student, and sexuality is a matter I don’t take lightly. (I’m practically asexual.)
~ I don’t discriminate or grow bored of people; any and all communication is welcome, so long as the intentions are good!
Yes, one of my fave books on introducing Wicca to people is called “Wicca (a guide for the solitary practitioner)” by Scott Cunningham. The book has a theoretical part and a practical (exercise) part which I thought was really cool. Coming with the book are also book recommendations on further studies and topics. :)
(if anyone else knows other books that are good, please comment/reblog!)
yes i can!
the heptagram is a 7 pointed “star”, also called the witch’s or astrologer’s star. it is a very magical symbol because it has has the number 7 woven in it.
7 is the number associated with venus (funny you ask now, venus is currently retrogate) and sometimes with neptune as well. it also stands for love and sexuality (coming with venus). in the western kabbalah, seven relates to venus and her strong sexual energies (which are similar to mars). the heptagram in kabbalah also symbloizes the 7 colors of the rainbow, the 7 notes of music, the 7 planets, the 7 alchemical metals, the 7 days of the week and the sphere of netzach.
in the picture you see each end has a planet aligned to it, being symbolic for the 7 days of the week (each day stands with a planet). the planets are sun (sunday), moon (munday), mars (tuesday), mercury (wednesday), jupiter (thursday), venus (friday) and saturn (saturday).
the heptagon takes that emotion inwards: it stands for containment. some people use all 3 in the last picture to get a powerful mandala.
the heptagram also symbolizes the 7 chakras: balancing and harmonizing them give you health, power and a happy physical and mental life :D
here a quick explanation what an obtuse and acute heptagram are (as shown in last picture):
- obtuse - passivity, contentment, attuning with nature and its forces, balanced feelings and satisfied desires, healthy rythms and sexuality, normal receptivity and awareness of others emotions
- acute - activity, outgoing interactions with nature and its forces, progressive use of natural forces and directing strong sexual energy, strong feelings and desires, strong sensitivity of emotions of others. it is the symbol of the empath and healer as well.
i hope that helps :)

A brief about you: I’m Ashlea. I was born into a Christian family and I’ve been interested in the Craft since about 201o, only really starting to call myself a witch October 2012. I’m a Wiccan, still in the broom closet. I’d really love to talk to someone who has been through or is going through the whole broom closet thing, or even someone who has been practicing all their life who can teach me things. I feel that there is always room to grow.
Any other info you want to share: I love Avatar: the Last Airbender (significant because it actually was one of the factors that started my journey), I’m a photographer, 18 (on July 12 2012), a graduate, and almost always have proper grammar. c:

Country of Residence : United States.
Languages: English and French.
How many Pen Pals you have/want: zero/no more than three.
A brief about you: I’ve been into Wicca since I was a freshman in high school. I am highly spiritual and very interested in magick and the occult. I am currently a solitary practitioner and no quite out of the broom closet. I am a Gemini and have taken Nyx, Persephone, and Aphrodite as my patron Goddesses. I am slightly more inclined to the left-hand path, but I tend to switch back and forth.
Any other info you want to share: I turn eighteen next week and I’m a rising first-year at the University of Virginia. Don’t let my darkness fool you, I’m actually very sweet and like to make others happy! I’m outgoing and very open to new paths and ways of thinking. I love science and I use it as influences in my magick. I currently know no other Witches! I’d love to get to know you lot! Also, I’m very sexual and embrace that side of life and I’d like to know someone who sees that the same way as I do!
Blessed Be! <3
