Hello! My magickal name is Willowrose Moondancer (or at least that’s what I’m trying out for now). I’m 19 (20 in a couple months). I’m a student at my local college for Early Childhood Education. I’ll be done the program in June and going to hopefully be working in a daycare/preschool. I’m in a 5 year relationship with the love of my life. Oh and I have a really cute kitten named Mango.
My religious journey starts when I was born. I was baptised and raised as a Christian in the united church. I went to church as a little kid with my grandparents and then I stopped for some time. I went to bible camps growing up too. In my preteen years I started going back to church with my grandparents I got confirmed there. Then my dad started going to a baptist church. I then started going to that church instead. When I was around 15 I started believing less and less in the Christian god and was only going to church because I thought my dad would be disappointed in me. I did eventually stop going (he was not disappointed and now actually identifies as Pagan) and became agnostic. Agnosticism though didn’t feel right to me. I needed something to believe in and I wanted it to have a name. So I did research about religions for a lot of grade 11 and discovered Paganism and for awhile I was happy with that. For me though Pagan was such a broad term. I wanted something more specific so I did more and more digging. I found Wicca and although all the religious aspects of Wicca made sense to me I didn’t know how I felt about magick as it was so taboo. So I ignored Wicca even though I was Wiccan at heart. This was a battle for me all through grade 12. Then when I was 18/19 I did a lot more research and thought more about magick and decided I believed in magick but didn’t want to do it so I was a non magick practicing Wiccan. I started celebrating the Sabbats that year. I slowly started telling my boyfriend my beliefs (he’s agnostic). The following school year (the one I am in now 19/20) I am completely transitioning from celebrating “Christian” holidays and Wiccan Sabbats to just Wiccan Sabbats. I am still doing more research because there is never a point where there is no more to learn. So I guess what I am saying is that I may not have been practicing Wicca for a very long time but I am passionate about it, I love it, and we can learn all about it together.
This blog is all about Wicca. What it is, what we believe in, all about magick, rituals, alters, ect. All though there are more and more sources for Wicca these days it is still a religion more difficult to find some good information on. The hope is for this to be an easy to read resource for beginners and people interested in Wicca. I don’t have an exact schedule yet but I am going to try out posting on Wednesdays and maybe Saturdays.
I encourage people to comment with their opinions or questions. I am okay with friendly discussions with nonbelievers, as this is a place to learn and exchange thoughts, but no demeaning or negative comments will be left not deleted as this is a safe space for those wanting to learn. You can also send me private messages if there is anything you feel like sharing privately (be it a personal experience, comment, or question) at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you all enjoy! Merry Meet and Blessed Be.
