Twenty-Five Questions

A friend of mine is teaching a course on Wicca and asked all her friends to answer twenty-five questions to show the diversity of opinions within Paganism. I am posting my answers here not just so my readers can get to know me better, but also in hopes that other bloggers will answer these questions on their own blogs.

  1. What Do You Call Yourself?: A Witch
  2. Using Common Terms, Describe Your Path: Solitary Pagan with strong Wiccan influences
  3. Do You Draw from a Particular Path, Not Your Own, Frequently?: Reclaiming (i.e. the works of Starhawk).
  4. Any Path Intimidate You?: Shamanism is fascinating, but I don’t think I’m disciplined for it.
  5. Favorite Herb: Lavender
  6. Favorite Gemstone: Chevron Amethyst
  7. Favorite Divination Tool: Tarot
  8. Favorite Tools: Candles
  9. Favorite Sabat: Mabon, although I am stricter at adhering to the esbats.

  19. Meditate?: Yes, using prayer beads
  20. Magic?: All of the time
  21. If Yes to 20, Dark Witchcraft, Light Witchcraft, or In-between?: In-between because I think dark/light is a matter of perspective.
  22. In or Out of the Broomcloset?: Half and half.  Out to friends, in to family.
  23. Solitary or Coven Member: Solitary
  24. What Forms of Social Media Do You Use as a Pagan?: WordPress, Tumblr, and Witch’s Voice
