Welcome to TCC, ash!

You'll find a vast amount of information about Wicca, Witchcraft and magic(k) generally hidden away in the various threads of this Forum, especially the Sticky threads. Should you feel like posting contributions from your own experience, please feel free!

Things have been fairly quiet here recently, but there are occasional flurries of activity. I have a few posts of my own awaiting solely the urge to actually write them down . . . . .!!

Happy hunting! - and Blessed Be,

Alchymist.

Hi, my name is Ash, and I'm a Celtic Pagan! I found this website a couple of months ago, and decided to join the forums, to talk to others like me. I mostly follow Cernunnos and Badb, but they're not my defined set.

Hello, whoever reads this,

I am looking for someone with good experience in making spells and the occult to ask questions to and learn from. Nothing crazy or super advance just throw some ideas and thoughts back and forth, if anyone feels this is their territory let me know :)

Wanted to share here, with the help of an a new friend, I've come to the conclusion that the old wise woman in this dream, was most likely Hecate. I plan on introducing myself to her and apologizing to Persephone for being abemsent, next month.

How do you confirm someone is a high priestess?
In what tradition?  If someone is claiming initiation and HPS credentials in British Traditional Wicca, you can join the yahoo group Amber and Jet, and ask that she be vetted back channel. Other traditions may have a different vetting process.  She should be happy to offer the names of her officiating High Priest/esses at her initiation and elevation and you can ask around from there.  If she balks or acts defensive, it's a red flag and there's your answer.
As far as I'm aware, she never actually specified. We're both fairly sure she's just trying to one up my friend, because she has a habit of having to be the center of attention. I know she's from Canada, that's about it.

Thanks so much, I wasn't sure where to look. I just knew there was probably laws regarding this. I'll look into it asap.
Because this is such an important topic, and no one else has answered yet, I did my best to do some research.  Although I am not Wiccan, I have been a member of TCC for several years, and I am aware that many experienced members have refused to teach minors.

The following two articles warn Pagans about teaching minors.  Both articles include information concerning interacting with minors on-line as well as in person.  I hope you find them helpful.

So it has been awhile since I have posted on here. In the time since I have been slowly, very slowly, working my way farther down whatever path lays before me.

Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking, meditating, and soul searching. I have been looking for a name or a guide or something. I'm not really even sure what it is I am looking for to be honest. But during those sessions, 3 names continue to pop into my head. The first, Gaia, seems to be fairly common and, for a lack of a better term, more normal or even traditional. The other 2 however are odd. They are familiar to me and may be familiar to others familiar with the tv show Avatar: The Last Airbender. Those names are Tui and La. They translate from Chinese as push and pull, respectively. In the tv show they are depicted as the ancient spirits of the moon (Tui) and the ocean (La) who have left the spirit world and taken the forms of black and white koi fish in the physical world. Together they represent balance through the constant push and pull of the tides.


 For whatever it's worth .... This is not terribly different from the ancient Chinese concept of yin / yang.

 https://www.ancient.eu/Yin_and_Yang/

 Perhaps it's simply been a matter of rebranding a basic concept central to Chinese spiritual beliefs under new names ? If you dig back through history, many of the gods and goddesses had different names.

 ETA: Have a little more time for research this morning. The TED X lectures are usually pretty good. Found this link:

https://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-hidden-meanings-of-yin-and-yang-john-bellaimey

 The basic ideas are very similar to Air bender. ( Used to watch it with the kids back in the day.) It doesn't seem all that improbable that they drew from Asian philosophies / religions as the inspiration for their story telling.

 The notions of the Gaia, polar opposites being complimentary to one another, striking balance, and so on are also common themes on Neo Paganism & Wicca.
