Greetings et. al August 12, 2008 11:41 AM

Hello all. Like a lot of others here I'm an eclectic Pagan, but with emphasis on Babylonian GrecoRoman & Celtic mythologies/cultures. I've been pretty much solitary, and mostly in the broom closet since '96/'97. I spend a lot of time reading and researching different avenues of magic/occult/mythology. Looking forward to some engaging discourse.

hi! i thought this first mesage would be easier to write... anyway, i'm a rookie sort of speak. im 29, and i've been quite a voyeur about wicca for a looooong time. never did anything about it until my 29th birthday (december)... now im trying to find my path.

i fix computers for a living ( =P ), luv to go to the top of mounts in the atlantic shore of my country and just sit there, feeling the moment.

im alone, so i believe this makes me a solitaire eclectic (this last part just because i have trouble with written-in-stone rules concerning spirituality).

my english is a little bit rusty so i appologise if i make up words or i "overlook" grammar.

so... thx for reading! i'm looking forward to learn a lot from this group

Merry Meet,

I just realized I never introduced my self. My screen name is Moonchild, my name is Debbie.

I have about 10 friends in this group.

I am a new Pagan, I guess that is how one would put it.

I do candle magick spells. I would like a topic entitled that with a few more suggestions on the topic.

I have leanings toward Celtic, Egyptian & Native American.

Yes, quite a mix, wouldn't you say.

Hello all! I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Johnny M. and I am a wiccan. I have been so for quite some time. I have not yet started practicing witchcraft except for divination (I started doing that before I was wiccan). I'm waiting to start practicing the craft when I can devote my full time and energy to it. I don't want to be a dabbler.

I am 16 years old and I live in Tennessee. If you want to know more about me....go to my page.

Can't wait to get to know all of you!

I've been part of this group for some time now, but have never really posted, although I read the discussions/postings regularly. I just wanted to let everyone know how much I appreciate their advice and general words of wisdom. I don't comment on a lot of things, but I have very few people (Wiccan or otherwise) that I can talk to, so knowing that I have contact with those like me makes this journey much less lonely. I guess I'm being a little sentimental with the holiday season, but I just wanted everyone to know that their words mean a lot to's nice knowing that I have people I can turn to.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I moderate the group "Pennsylvania Pagans" here on Care2, and my wife an I co-moderate the Yahoo group "Wilkes-Barre Pagan and Proud".

I've been actively practicing for more than 10 years now. My trad has Celtic roots but is pretty eclectic. I specialize in healing methods, and love teaching.  My husband and I hosted a circle in Central Ca. for about 6 was wonderful.

I posted a couple of things, and then I realized that I still need to introduce myself.

I've been an ecclectic pagan solitary practitioner for about 11-12 years now. Wow, has it been that long! How the years fly...

Anyway...I am totally in the broom closet with some people - my parents, most of my family, and some colleagues - and totally out of the broom closet with other people - my children, most of my friends and other colleagues.

I've been happily divorced since 2001. I have two children - a son age 13, and a daughter age 10. We also have 2 cats, 4 rats, 1 guinea pig, 1 dog, 3 fish, and several houseplants. I am also a big Nature person and love anything to do with Mother Earth.

Let's see...what else...

I like to read and write, and I'm a big movie buff, but I don't like TV that much. I like to study anthropology, history, natural sciences, spirituality, the occult, herbalism, holisitc health care, and nature. I like to take walks and go hiking, and/or just sit outdoors and enjoy the nature.

Thanks to whoever started this group at Care2. I'm looking forward to meeting new friends, sharing ideas, and learning more.

Brightest Blessings!

HI! June 22, 2006 2:20 PM


I am a solitary witch, and very much inside the broom closet. 


Unfortunately, my job (teacher) does not permit me to be too open.  I thought a group of like-minded people would be just the thing for me!  Thank you all for being here!

PS: any good suggestions on how to wear a pentacle without anyone else know you are wearing one?  I feel naked without having mine on all day.  I used to wear it openly until a student screamed at the top of her lungs: "She worships the DEVIL!!!", to which I calmly replied that I most certainly did not, that what I was wearing was a symbol of the earth and of joy and that I didn't even THINK about the devil, much less worship him... but I don't want the scenes or the explainations....

Aloha from the hawaiian isles,

I am a solitary student of wicca and huna, I am drawn toward celtic, hawaiian studies, I'm also a cat person, though I love all animals. Been studying for almost a year.  The Goddess and God know what we need, and when we need it.  Sometimes in unusual ways.  I am married to a part inuit eskimo from alaska.  We understand each other and we support each other spiritually.  My oldest daughter is a wiccan, too. 

Again mahalo for letting me be a part of this family,  Blessed Be!

Merry Meet~
I'm Wysperia- CelticPagan with wiccan influences, and very intuitive to the Fae and Nature. I've always been in tune with the Fae since I was a child. I'm still new to my Path and embrace all that I'm learning. I've been exposed to many Christian faiths: Catholic, Baptist, Wesleyan, Methodist, and Lutheran, but never felt "fulfilled or complete". I had a curiousity towards Paganism, but neglected to research it  because it was considered too taboo. I didn't want to be shunned, ridiculed, or bashed. Well now that I'm older and wiser (*winks*), I can freely choose for ME! Yes, I'm in the broom closet, and I'm not ashamed of that either. I'm proud to claim that I AM PAGAN. However... it's my choice and I don't feel the need to justify it. It's private and intimate for me. Being in the broom-closet allows me to be free & open when I mediate or perform candle magik or frolic with the Faes. I don't have an "altar", but I do have my dedication of faes, herbs, candles, and incense. Having my "quiet times" allows me to focus on "wyspers" of the Fae and Nature. To focus on the positive energy and NOT encounter any negativity due to MY choice. Earth-loving and I hug trees too! I'm very content with my path. I've also noted that Pagans/Wiccans are the most open-minded and open-hearted people I've ever met. How can anyone NOT embrace that?
I am eager to learn green/kitchen witchery. I love candles, incense and herbs. I look forward to getting to know ya'll and learning as well. Thanks for having me here!

Hi,I just stumbled along here... March 03, 2006 10:40 PM

And I love this place. I've been practicing since I was 17, almost 25 now, and though alot has changed, almost everything is the same, if that makes any sense. I'm only in the broom closet with the very religous very loved people in my life(grandma and grandpa,no sense in wreaking havoc on their last years). But the one thing I've learned is that it doesn't really matter who knows what as long as you know. Any way, I'm solitary now, more like a hermit if you must know, and really miss my old coven days. Now I live in a town that doesn't hold much hope of me finding one. Now for a few less vague things(my Social skills are rusty,please excuse me)I'm a mom of two,My daughteris old enough to have decided she is biblebelt christian, my son a baby I'm hoping will follow in my steps, yhough I love and encourage them both in whatever. My hubby is, well I'm really not sure, I don't think he is either, and my biggest dislike about my life is my location. Merry met, and merry part Zephyr  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hello everyone, I am new to this group. I discovered it tonight and thought I would fit in nicely. I am Wiccan and have been practicing the craft for about 14 years. I live in a small town and have not chosen to come out of the broom closet (yet). I practice within a small coven.  I am interested in sharing ideas for ritual work and spell craft. I would love to find a community of like minded persons. I am new to forums so I will probably take time to find my way around.

Hello. I've been a member for a while, but this is my first post. I'm a (some what) solitary eclectic Wiccan. By the way, the some what, is towards the solitary part. I have been for three (?) years now. Before that, I spent all the previous years of my life trying to find the path that was right for me. I attended several Christian, Catholic, and even one Menonite churches, but didn't find what I was looking for until four years ago. I started researching Wicca and then, a year or so later, decided that it was the right path for me. So, anyway, this is me introducing myself and saying hello.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

*I just wanted to share this with everyone. It's a short poem I wrote in celebration of my journey into the world of Wicca. I'll go ahead and introduce myself, as well...can't remember if I did before. I'm Susan, I have been interested in Wicca since I was very young. I was forbidden to practice it, b/c I was raised by very devout Christians. Now, as an adult, I want to encourage my children to follow the path that their souls take them on (not their parents/society). They have a natural attraction to the Craft, just as I did. Now, we endeavor to grow as wiccans together as a family, so any advice any may have will be greatly appreciated!

Merry Meet Everyone,

I'm new to care2 and new to the group.  I've been practicing my craft for quite a few years now.  I'm highly eclectic in my approach so love learning new things.  I'm really looking forward to getting to know you.

HELLOOOOOO TO EVERYONE August 11, 2005 7:19 PM

Hello everyone new and not so new (didn't want to say old, didn't sound right)

Been a member for awhile now, haven't posted yet, so I figured I might as well say how do you do, while everyone else is as well.

I am Pagan, I consider myself ecclectic with Pictish tendencies (hehe).  I am not Wiccan, but was raised Wiccan.  My children are being raised in a general Pagan way of life, but are still too young to understand.  My husbands laughs when I say to our 3 year old "look at the moon, isn't she beautiful" (I was raised Wiccan so I still look at the moon as feminine), and our 3 year old answers with "she can't be beautiful, she doesn't have a face".  I know he is still young, but we're working on it.

I moved to northern Vermont last year, it is as bad as living in the bible belt compared to Connecticut.  In CT, no need to be in the broom closet what-so-ever.  Up here, forget about it!  Into the closet I go, for the first time in my life.  Very odd!!!! 

Mels has to agree with me on that one.  She knows what it's like up here. 

Also I have a step-mother-in-law, that is extremely Christian, which I have NO PROBLEM with, but she keeps telling me I need to be saved. 

The problem I do have is that she seems to think it is her duty to educate my children about religion.  Now I am not a person that wants my children to grow up with the knowledge of only one path, but I do have a problem with her telling my children that what mommy tells them is wrong.  Anyone agree with me?  Or does anyone have a suggestion? 

 I have asked her to leave the spiritual guidence of my children up to me, I told her it was fine to read stories about Noah, or Moses or whatever she wants.  That is ok with me, but I asked her not to belittle my beliefs, she thinks I am over reacting.   Opinions are greatly appreciated!

Love and Light,

Blessings to all as I make this introduction.  I am a solitary witch (32 years old and mother to two cats/one dog) who focuses strictly on Goddess-worship (obviously with the understanding that God is equally important).  I have been guided by Goddess who has introduced herself as Amma and She teaches me through my inner voice and heart how to live and how to be consciously aware of my errors in judgment and action.

I hope to find refuge and encourage in the fellowship of pagans who strive to find inner peace and true happiness too.  Blessings Be!

Merry Meet all -

I am a newish member of the group - a 19 year old college student (Acting Major) who has been practicing paganism for about six years. I call myself an Animist - or an Animistic Witch. (Sort of generic brand pagan ;o) Yesterday I posted a query - a new thread I called, "Ponderings," just looking for some feedback from others on some history/origins type questions. I'd love it if anyone had a chance to glance it over and offer thoughts.

Love and Light

Merry Meet all!  My name is Lone Wolf, I am new to the group but not to this path.  I am 20 years old and have been fascinated with the old religions all my life (a practicing Eclectic Pagan for 8 years now).  I have one little boy (Ian - 4 mo. old today) and am legally able to perform handfastings and other rites through the Universal Life Church.  I also am putting together a meetup group in my area for Pagans - our first meetup in Mendocino county, CA is this Saturday (to celebrate Lughnassadh).  It's nice to meet you, and I would love to hear from any of you that want to talk; just send a msg to

anonymous Merry Meet Y'all July 18, 2005 11:42 AM

Hi. I have been practicing/reading and trying to live a nice but realistic Eclectic Wiccan life since about 1994. I was a sophomore in highschool then and luckily Mom was the one who helped me pick up my first book in a little mom&pops style bookstore. It was Scott Cunninghams Guide to Solitary Wicca (that title is from memory, so if I am wrong but you know what I am talking about, then I figure it's "close enough for government work") Unfortunately Dad is uncomfortable, but knows that all is benign. Plus he feels bad about his own spirituality and believes he'd destined for hell because he used to drink & smoke and the body is your temple.... Other unfortunate thing is that mom will say "your wicca stuff' when it bothers someone who visits, I dunno if it refers to Dad's uncomfortableness in it. But here's the thing, since about 1996 or 8 Mom decided this was her path too. She is so far in the closet that she'd rather put heat on me as I am more free to talk, I am more out than she I think she'll ever will be. But I digress, this is an intro to me not a venting posts, I'll save that for later!!!! Over the years, I have found a special place in my heart for Ann (Amouiel) Moura and Kerr Cuhulain, they inspire me the most now-a-days. I host a group at: Please take a look, If you or someone you know can benefit, please join or give your friend the e-address for them to join!

New here and wanted to say HI July 08, 2005 11:25 PM

I just want to say Thanks for having this site.  Still looking around but looks really good. I live outside Chicago. I mostly stay to myself and family.  Can you be in and out of the closet at the same time?  If so that is me. Trying to put a name onto what I am is hard to say the least. I read books that I find, tarot, herbs, and I try to learn from nature that is around me.

 Again thanks and Many Blessings,

Hello May 07, 2005 9:35 AM

Bright blessings all. I am an eclectic hedge witch with overtones of buddhism and that's way too much to describe..let's say I take wisdom where I find it. I practice Tarot, pendulum and Reiki, aromatherapy and herbalism...and am learning a little about astrology. SERIOUSLY environmental and radically political in my support of freedom of religion, speech and caring for the earth. I am a widow with one daughter and am out of the Broom Closet, but in a quiet way. Would love to see more pagans paving the way so we don't have to hide. Glad to be here!

Wanting to say hello and compliment you on what a great forum this is.

I was raised by a witch, my mother. Her 2 sisters and their mother were witches. I never really got into this to much until the last 3 or 4 months. I was into Voodoo. I'm now learn much about the similarities and differences. As well as the different religious views associated with each.

Thank you for having me here and for the wonderful teachings.

New to the group and still in the broom closet April 19, 2005 8:50 PM

Merry Meet Everyone!  I'm new to this site and thought I should say hello, introduce myself.  My name is Laura and I'm originally from New Jersey and about 2 1/2 yrs ago moved to Chicagoland with my husband.  I'm homesick but being a trooper and making the best of it.    I have 2 cats (Isabella - Maine Coon, Chloe - short haired grey mean little mutt of a cat but sooo cute).  I've been practicing Paganism since 2002, but still feel like a newbie.  I'd love to become part of a group on-line or in person, but not a coven.  I guess I'm still in the broom closet just because I've moved to a new area and am not sure how my "information" would be received.  Hopefully that little drawback will change in time.  I'm interested in the healing arts, homeopathy, organic living, environmental issues and lifestyle, herbalism, pottery, photgraphy, poetry, crafts, spirituality, family, friends, good music books and movies, and much more....I still feel I need guidance in many aspects of Paganism and have much to learn about my other hobbies as well.  I feel it's good to not say you "know everything there is to know about a subject"...I feel that limits you and your growth.  I feel we are all growing and evolving and that we are constant students of LIFE.  Now that I've rambled on incessently...I ask that you don't hold it against me too much, I'm just so excited! LOL!  I look forward to chatting with everyone and getting to meet all of you.  Brightest Blessings to you.

Peace & Light,  Laura

I have 3 cats, Spookie (black DSH s), Tanner (classic red Tabby n), and Royal (black Oriental n) I love them all.. Tanner and Roy are 2 weeks apart in age. Spookie will be 2 yrs old in May.

Merry meet group,

 My name is Theresa (wickedladyoh) I live in Ohio.

I have been reading and learning for about 1 yr. Now. However, there is so much more I need to learn and understand.

I have joined so many groups to learn but they all turn out to be just a chat place.

I need some one to mentor me and teach me the ways (Pagan, Wicca, Spells and Such)

I have never tried to perform a spell or have never attended a ritual

I am a very shy, to myself person I love darkness, and I hate heat.

My favorite Godess is ISIS.

I feel that my animal totem is cats but I love birds and the Raven.

The thing I want to learn the most is how to find my inner self.

This seems to an open and true group and I do look forward to getting to meet you all and learning all I can from you.

Blessings to all.

Hello :-) March 21, 2005 5:52 PM

Hi!  I am not Wiccan at this point, and call myself Pagan.  I recently began my "year and a day" in order to figure out if this is where I belong.  I feel I do - for years I have been reading, studying, collecting brooms and various other tools of the craft, mainly because I find them aesthetically pleasing and comforting to have around.  Many of my closest friends have called me Witch for years, which I have always opposed, as I don't believe in accepting the title before I have worked for it.

I will tell you this:  the more I read, the more I learn, the more I open my eyes, the more I "feel", "know", that this is where I belong.  I am on the path, and am feeling more and more comfortable in my own skin with each passing day.

Thank you for having a forum where I and others like me are welcome

Big hugs,

I am an Eclectic Witch that leans very heavily on Kitchen Witchery. I love to grow my own herb garden & harvest for use all year. Other than Wortcunning (herbalism) I also study extensivley, Past lives, spirit comunication, "paranormal" (I really don't like that word it is VERY MUCH normal) ivestigations, dream interpertations, & the divination forms of Tarot & scrying the MOST.  I will use other forms  though as I feel the need arise. I am the HPS of The Coven of the Blue Moon. I teach a class on Wicca & Witccraft once a week.I also, am the organizer of the Sullivan & Orange County Area Witches Meet -up which is an informal group that is open to Witches from ANY path that meets once a month & chit chats with other witches, as sometimes it is hard to find most of us around here because most Witches keep in the broom closet or one foot out.LOLOLOL I am a homemaker but as you can see I do keep very very busy. I also enjoy making all natural bath & beauty products, & candles & "witchy" Crafts. & I also run an msn group on Witchcraft. That has vrious topics & happenings going on.

I always dislike thse get to know me things, I'm always worried I'm gonna come on to strong, or that I do nothing! LOL So ANYWAY...

Anyways.. My name is Cassie, I'm 20 and live in Virginia.  I've been Wiccan for 6 years but am still wanting and needing to learn so much more!

Some people know some people don't, I don't run around on a broom telling everyone frantically, but I don't mind telling if they're asking.

I'm a very open person and if some one say "can I ask you a question?"  I tell them only if they want an honest answer.

I look forward to learning all I can here.  And it looks like I should.

Blessed Be,

Merry Met! January 17, 2005 3:22 PM

Hi everyone!  My name is Vivian and I am a witch!  Whew!  There I said it!    I have been a devoted student of the Wiccan way for 20 years now.  There is always so much more to learn and I find you learn a lot from your fellow students!  I hope to meet many new and interesting folks here!

Bright Blessings!

Hello everyone,
I'm Dawn, and I'm not a pagan. I am however interested in many paths and learning as much as I can. I do not judge, and am very open minded. I'm looking forward to meeting you all and learning more about Wicca and other branches of Paganism.
you're all welcome to contact me if you'd like: (i use this for MSN as well)

Thank you,

Merry Meet January 13, 2005 7:47 AM

 Just wanted to introduce myself!  It's a pleasure to see so many familiar faces now that iv'e been bouncing around the boards a bit. Iv'e been a wiccan for just over twenty years--I just did the math(shudder) LOL

Looking forward to exchanging ideas (and laughs too, given the opportunity). Both my best friend and I have been told we cackle, and it is nothing for someone to poke their head around the corner of my house and say "I heard you two cackling from the road and thought I'd day hi." On a clear winters night, with the leaves gone, I am convinced the whole west side of the mountain can here us LOL

Anyway, I beleive one of the ways we handle curiosity and questions just by being ourselves. We are walking representations of our beliefs.

BB, Tina

Introduction January 12, 2005 6:47 PM

Merry Meet!  I'm new to the group and just wanted to introduce myself.  My name is Kathy, I live in Ashland, Ohio and have been interested in Wicca since attending a Wiccan wedding three years ago.  I've done a lot of reading on the subject and want to be more active in practicing now that I have time to devote to it.  I recognize some of your names from other, related groups I've joined.  I'm looking forward to sharing with all of you in the vary near future.  Blessed be.

anonymous A little bit about me... January 10, 2005 7:34 PM

Since my name does pop up on the boards here and there, I figure I might as well say hi so...HI!

I've been on and off the path for over 16 years.  Decided about five years ago to give up pretenses and just be my happy little witchy self. (That happened in stages--figuring out how one set of beliefs worked with another until I was completely open.)  I've definitely seen the biases and dealt with fears and ignorance but I've also been encouraged by the number of people who seem to just be curious.   Asking questions is always the first step to learning so I just encourage them all I can.

I've enjoyed what I've seen on the boards so far and look forward to what lies ahead.

Blessed be,

vampires January 10, 2005 6:24 PM

I know what you mean.I don't know or have heard anything of this.Fictional is the only thing of this but i went to a site to meet other wiccans and pagans in person and there was listed a group meeting for they really call themselves vampires and i was a little shocked because fictional literature about vampires i find repulsive.

I know people can be intrusive and sometimes leave you feeling exhausted or hurt but I'm a learning pagan and i have not come across anything that i have read.I know spiritual abuse can have devasting effects because i have experienced that in my life.I don't like to descibe  it as spiritual abuse as it is not a spiritual act but done by people using that in a false way.Atariel if you could let me know i do appreciate if it is taken seriously or a joke.

Blessings and love,

Thanks Anjee

Vampires?????????????? January 09, 2005 6:58 PM

Debbie, can you elaborate??? Do you mean vampire like the fictional Character Dracula, or do you mean something like Psychic Vampires who feed off of your emotions???

I need you to be more specific hun before I can answer.

BTW Anjee & Debbie

Anjee, no one can take your children based on your religious beliefs. Of course if you are turned in CFC has the responsibility to come to your home to make sure your kids are clean, well fed, properly schooled, live in a clean environment, and are neither neglected or abused. Paganism is an umbrella name for earth based religions. Wicca is an earth based religion.

Though to answer your question, yes, Wicca is a recognized religion. President Clinton insured our rights to practice Paganism, and no, children cannot be removed from home based on the religion of the parent.

anonymous New to the group January 05, 2005 6:44 PM

I have been reading books on Wicca, in the past few months I was raised babtist but for some reason I have been drawn to the books. I really dont have any friends to talk to about this because they all laugh at me and call me nuts. Some have gone as far to say that if they know that i start practicing witchcraft they will call the state on me so my kids will be taken away. Am i not right that paganism or wiccan is also a relegion, and that we have the right to practice or beleive in which relegion that we want to.  If not someone please set me straight. I have found what i read very intersting and need some help here.

Merry Meet, I'm relatively new to the group, and new to the broom closet as well. I have been pagan since I was 13, but have recently moved to a tiny, very conservative town in the deep south and feel like I can no longer be completely open about my beliefs. I consider myself a Green witch...I work mostly with herbs and faery magic, as well as good old fashioned kitchen witchery. I am a self-emloyed WAHM, and have one beautiful, magical, 2 year old daughter. Looking forward to getting to know you all! Blessings, Emmeline  [report anonymous abuse]  [ accepted]
