Which witch?

Solitary Eclectic Pantheist Neopagan Witch

I describe myself as a Solitary Eclectic Pantheistic Neopagan Witch. What does that mean? Truly, there's no standard definition when it comes to witchcraft, witchery, and paganism/neopaganims. In fact, its lack of dogmatic definition is the appeal for many (in contract to the Abrahamic religions).

But when it comes to this earth-based spiritual practice I dedicate myself to, I know what *I* mean by it, so here is a break down...

 

Solitary Eclectic Pantheist Neopagan Witch

  • Solitary Witch = one who doesn't belong to any formal organization, including a coven

  • Eclectic Witch = one who doesn't follow a set practice of witchcraft or witchery. An eclectic witch takes up a mix of what feels right to them when it comes to witchcraft and other open spiritual practices. I add the term "open" because one should take care not to appropriate a closed practice.

  • Pantheistic = believing there is spirit in animal, mineral and/or plant

  • Neopagan = earth-based spiritual practice. My holidays come from the seasons and their midpoints (sabbats), as well as the phases of the moon (esbats). Each is an observation and celebration of the Earth and its relation to the Sun and the moon, respectively.

  • Witch = some witches are atheist, others are Christian, some areligious, some just spiritual (that's me), but--to my mind--in all cases, being a witch means to practice a craft of intention and intuition, that is part hereditary, part individual, part intellectual, and based on the natural world and the wonders in it.
