Executive Board Interviews: Part 6

Do you practice any form of magic? Tell us more about that.

Cat: Yes, I practice witchcraft. My practice is mostly inspired by British folk magic and
hedgewitchery that I have learned over the years. I don’t practice all-out magic all the
time (i.e., large spells), but I do practice little magics fairly regularly. These are things
like wish charms, talismans, etc.

Kate: Yes. I do some oracular work and divination with Enochian tarot. I practice something close to folk magic which uses what I have on hand or find in my environment. I have strange rocks, sticks and bones all over my house. They call to me so I bring them home and sometimes they find their way into my magic work. I combine that with work with my ancestors, my guides and/or my goddesses. I guess that sounds really vague. It is hard for me to describe in writing. Ask me the next time you see me and we can talk about it!

Tal: [answers coming soon!]

Aleja: Yes, I do. I do a lot of folk-magic-inspired workings, like spell jars and fibercraft spells. I also enchant a lot of objects, especially my jewelry. The majority of my work is done in trance, though, as energy and visualization work, sometimes with a physical world anchor (like a candle), sometimes not. If divination counts as a type of magic, I do a lot of that, too!

What is one thing you want people to know about you and/or Paganism?

Cat: About me: I love the Fellowship. I am humbled seeing how far it has grown over the last several years, especially since in the beginning, it was just Angelica and myself. I have met some amazing people and developed some great friendships because of this group, and I am so thrilled to see how far we have come. I can’t wait to see what we accomplish in the coming years—and you’ll learn more about those plans and ideas next month!

About Paganism: Paganism is whatever you want it to be. While it is a religious path, there are so many ways that this term can be applied in regards to people’s individual paths. There is little you can do that might actually be considered “wrong.” Just be mindful of the helps and hurts that your actions can have, both on yourself and on others.

Kate: There is no right or wrong way to come into Paganism. Follow your intuition and you will find your path.

Tal: [answers coming soon!]

Aleja: About Me: Ummm, ask me whatever you want to know. I’m happy to answer most questions and if I don’t want to answer I won’t be offended by being asked a sincere question.
About Paganism: I wish people really understood better how diverse the different streams and traditions are! If you try one kind and it’s not for you, that doesn’t mean paganism isn’t your path. Keep searching!
