The Holy Bible is:

Do you give your pets names like Pyewackett, Isis or Merlin?

In politics, you tend to vote conservative.

"An harm ye none, do what thou wilt."
No magick should be used to cause harm.

Give me a paper cup, a plastic knife and a packet of salt, and I can work magick anywhere.

Your Book of Shadows is:

Ritual participants should be in alternating gender sequence, male female male female, to create a 'magickal battery'.

Your athame should never be used for mundane tasks.

If a person says "I'm a Witch" then she's a Witch. Nobody else has to justify her personal journey.

Laughing during ritual should not be allowed.

A Witch should always observe all the Sabbats and Esbats.

Buddhist philosophy has a lot of truths that we can all learn from.

You should never reveal your magickal name to the mundane world.

Harry Potter is a fictional character, and anything from the books should be left there. We don't call non-witches "muggles", and we don't say "Expelliarmus."

You shouldn't mix pantheons. If you're invoking Cernunnos, don't pair him with Isis.

Magick and spells work because:

'Pagan Standard Time' is a sorry excuse for being lazy.

If you weren't born female, you're not a woman and should not be allowed into the Womyn's Mysteries.

There's no such thing as 'Black Magic'.

You can't be a witch if you're gay.

Gardnerian / British Traditional Witchcraft

Gardnerian / British Traditional Witchcraft

Gerald Gardner wrote liturgy, ceremony and ritual that speak for the ages. His system of ordination, high magick and deep secrecy have kept the mysteries alive like no other could. The Lord and Lady speak to you through rites of esoteric incantations, secret initiatory rites, skyclad worship and ornate ceremony. British Traditional Witchcraft is based on the Gardnerian tradition, but it incorporates elements of folk magick from all over the British Isles. Steeped in history and tradition, it is as vibrant today as the wind on the standing stones. Through Gardner's writings or BTW, the Lord and Lady greet you with open arms, sacred mystery, and possibly warm beer.

Dianic Witch

Dianic Witch

The goddess is the whole universe, complete within herself, and she is female. She has no need of any male counterpart. Likewise, you are a reflection of that divine form, complete within yourself. The Dianic tradition, created by Z Budapest, offers a tradition that calls to the spiritually empowered woman.

Feri/Faery Witch

Feri/Faery Witch

"We are not material beings living a spiritual life; we are spiritual beings living a material life." The divine mystery transcends form, face or gender, and the spark that beats in your heart is likewise unfettered and free. Feri witchcraft is a tradition that speaks to the pansexual universal dance inside us all.

Kitchen/Hedge Witch

Kitchen/Hedge Witch

Drying herbs hang from your kitchen window, you've got an oil or a salve for every ailment, and you can't tell your tea shelf from your medicine cabinet. Everyone knows you have a quick spell or folk remedy for any situation, and if you don't know the answer, you know how to make one up. As a Kitchen Witch, you mix magick and spirituality and common-sense know-how in a tasty brew that always does the trick. As a Hedge Witch, you know magick is all around you and spell components can be found anywhere. Everything is a magickal rite if you look at it the rite way.

Eclectic Witch / 21st Century Wiccan

Eclectic Witch / 21st Century Wiccan

Witchcraft cannot be traced to any single root source; it is a tapestry of many voices. Celtic, Norse, shamanic, Greek, Faerie, Harry Potter, have all contributed something to the magickal feast of eclectic witchcraft. A modern Wiccan, you honor the traditions of the past, but your vision is on the future. The world is rapidly changing and the modern Wiccan knows to keep in step with the changing times, your wand in one hand and your smartphone/GPS in the other. Others may frown on such a formless "tradition", but you are comfortable with creating your own personal spiritual path, a tradition of one, which is as unique as you are.

Stregheria Witchcraft

Stregheria Witchcraft

"Aradia, the Gospel of the Witches" by Charles Leland brought the Italian Stregheria tradition to the spotlight in the 1890's, and as a follower of Stregha Witchcraft you proudly follow a tradition that predates Gerald Gardner by at least a century. You worship Diana, the Hunter Goddess of the Moon, and her daughter Aradia. Stregha Witchcraft is not Wiccan, and has no use for that 'harm none' silliness. If a spell calls for justified harm to be done, then so be it.

White Light Crystal Witch

White Light Crystal Witch

As a White Light Crystal Witch, you embrace the divine love of universal truth. Chakras and harmonic vibrations and positive affirmations are your stock in trade, and you carry at least one charged crystal on you at all times. Angels and spirit guides speak you language, and you have more herbal tea recipes than most people ever knew existed.

"If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself." Covens are fine and all if you want a group of people to work magick or hold a Sabbat together, but more often than not they're just a breeding ground for senseless drama and ego-butthurt. As a Solitary Witch, you know that your altar and pentagram, your incense and athame, and your God and Goddess are all you need to find your magickal path.
