wixren asked: Hey I don't know if you'd know about this sort of thing but do you know if there are any pagan gamer clan/guilds/factions/etc out there? I'm having a hard time finding anything and this is just a shot in the dark but hey who knows. Failing that do you know of any spells or anything to help me find and connect with other pagan gamers maybe? Even just a suggestion of some elements I could incorporate into such a spell would be great. Thanks.
I don’t know of any groups like that myself (if any of our followers or other admins do, please say so :D). But, I think it would really depend on what you’re searching for in particular. Are you looking for a group you could meet with in person, or an online community?
If you’d like to find people to meet with locally, there are a few things you could do. If you go to college/university, you can see if your school has some sort of pagan club. You could also visit witchy/pagan shops in your area and ask the employees if they know of anything—my local shop is always hosting and sponsoring events with pagan groups. Another option is running a Facebook search and seeing if there are any open groups in your area. Finally, I suggest checking for groups in your area using Witch Vox, a website that helps people search for groups, circles, covens, etc. in their local areas. Click here for an index!
Keep in mind, if you are looking for a group that meets in person, it might not be easy to find something specifically centered around paganism and gaming, but it’s always worth a try. And perhaps this is something you could look into starting yourself if it doesn’t already exist!
Not sure if you’ve tried this already, but reaching out on Tumblr may yield some results either way. You could make a post expressing your interest in meeting more pagan gamers, tag the post with the appropriate tags, and see what happens. Also, I’m sure you’ve tried this already, but you could also Google “pagan gamers” and check out the results you get.
In this kind of situation, I strongly recommend relying more on the mundane than the magical. Meeting people requires a little effort on our parts, ya know? But of course there’s nothing wrong with a little magic to boost your efforts. Some type of friendship spell would probably fit this situation the best, if you are looking to draw new friends into your life with a group like that. Here is a simple spell that could help get you started.
I hope this helps you! Thanks for writing in. :)
Anonymous asked: I have a constant feeling of separation from another half, not romantically, but like a twin or a brother. What should I do? I've been coming in contact with a multitude of male or seemingly male figures who appear to be my age on the astral plane since I was very young, if that helps you answer at all.
It might have been that in another life you had a twin, and the bond that connected you both before was never completely severed in this life. So what you’re feeling could be the pulling on that connection that bound you both.
It happens more often than you would think.
inthecold-coldnight asked: Hey, I have been reading into witchcraft and wicca and I am very interested, especially in eclectic wicca since you can choose your own path. I was just wondering if you can tell me anything about starting out/ what books I can read/ what websites to go to. I am only in my teens so I am young but I am not doing this to "rebel". Many thanks!
If you are just starting out, and that is the path you are interested in pursuing, I would recommend checking out any of Scott Cunningham’s books. He has a good selection of reading material that I believe to be very helpful to new, young practitioners such as yourself. His work is a great way of easing into the art of witchcraft, and I think it would give you a solid foundation to start from.
Also, if you are interested in learning more about Wicca, I suggest you take a look at this list of recommended books. All of the recommendations there come with detailed descriptions about the contents of the books and why they are important to read. As well, the Wicca: For the Rest of Us website that the list is hosted on has a lot of other resources that would be helpful to you, so definitely browse through the various sections of the site and do some research! It will be helpful to you as a beginner, and also helpful as you develop your practice.
Hope this helps :)
Anonymous asked: What are the magical properties of dark chocolate?
I’ve heard of chocolate being used in a number of love and sex spells. Many spell ingredients are used not just for the correspondences but for actual scientifically proven benefits. Dark chocolate is a source of mood-stabilizing compounds as well as antioxidants. So I think dark chocolate would go very well in spells for happiness, self-love or other kinds of love. It can be used as an offering to deities or spirits too. Just keep it away from animals, as theobromine is harmful to dogs as well as cats!
