I AM. I am a creatrix, a slayer, a designer, a painter, a two headed doctor, a walker of the crooked path, a left handed maiden, a bruja, a layer of tricks, a remover of hexes, a caster of curses, a necromancer, a green thumb, a student, a teacher, a daughter, a mother, a sister, a great many things. But one thing I am not is satisfied. I am never satisfied with creating. My thirst for creation has yet to be quenched and until that day I will continue to make... magic, art, change, and myself. I am a W I T C H .
I am a Capricorn Sun, Gemini rising, and a Sagittarius Moon. My birth cards are The Tower and The Chariot.
I've been a practicing witch sense 2012. Although I've studied and like to incorporate many traditions into my craft, I am a southern conjure woman at heart with a huge crush on traditional Germanic witchcraft. The focus of my magic and spirituality revolve around Spirit Work because I was gifted / cursed with being a medium sense birth. Being a Spirit Worker has given me a huge advantage with plant spirits, so I very much enjoy gardening and use my natural green thumb to my advantage. I currently live in Chesapeake Virginia with my husband, two beautiful daughters, and our dog. When I'm not studying or crafting magic I am crafting art. Art is another huge part of who I am. My "day job", other then caring for my kids, is being a freelance artist. I do mainly portrait painting and tattoo designs. You can see my artwork here.
I grew up in Northeast Florida in a very small , hick town between Jacksonville and Amelia Island. My childhood was spent mostly playing in the woods and exploring dirt roads and creek beds with my two best friends and little sister. My Mother was a hard-core Southern Baptist, so we knew the ten commandments before the alphabet, never ate before we said amen, and never missed Sunday School. But despite my Mother's best efforts, I was too rebellious for Christianity. I questioned everything, which is taboo when they serve blind faith with the sweet tea. So somewhere around 18 years old, Jehoviah and I finally broke up, after a very long period of a rocky relationship.
A Spiritual Awakening
Armed with a new sense of independence that any big breakup will give you, I walked away from Abrahamic religions like a bad ass. But it wasn’t long before I became very uncomfortable being spiritually single. Thus began a long, and frantic search for a set of beliefs that I felt at home with. I started studying world religions in search for something to fill the void that Christianity left. Although chaotic, this was a huge turning point in my life. Through my religious studies, which were very thorough by the way (Capricorn / Gemini combo at work), I began to see huge patterns throughout all beliefs. Eventually they all blended together and I realized they were the same. This was the catalyst to my spiritual awakening. I discovered that I am a religious pluralist. I will never belong to any religion because I belong to all of them.
Enter: T H E W I T C H
Paganism was the natural next step in my journey. It afforded me the freedom to practice my spirituality in any way I saw fit. It's also what led me to The Craft. Witchcraft to me is entirely about taking control of my own destiny. Magic is the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity to will - Aleister Crowley. Being a Witch is my way of empowering myself with confidence, embracing the sensual and powerful nature of feminism, and demanding to be seen and heard as the capable and intelligent woman that I AM.
