Hey y'all, thought this would be a fun discussion to see how everyone was drawn to their path. I myself was very interested in (Egyptian) mythology ever since I was in fourth grade. In eighth grade,…Continue

I don't know if it's feasible to compile a complete list of the world's witchcraft forms. Even if we could, there are no practitioners present for the bulk of them who could provide educated input.  What would be more manageable, at least for now, is to perhaps work in a list of the Craft forms common within Neopaganism. This is where, as Ashe mentioned, also noting the distinction between "paths" and "traditions".

I forgot I have a PDF titled "Birds of Omen". I started reading it last night. It's a good read, hard to put it down. It only addresses the Raven and the Snowy Owl in the Orkney POV. It does glance at the superstitious associated with these two birds in a variety of other cultures though. Plenty of excerpts from lore of various sources - including Shakespeare.

Edan, will you be posting more about omens?  I'm curious what omens everyone heeds in their practice.  I myself only have omens regarding crows and vultures.  lol

I agree that the term "witch" is not an issue in the pagan community but it usually is for people just learning and for people outside the community.  It took me awhile to get used to it.  :)  My husband revels in getting to call me a witch on daily basis.

I deleted the rest of this comment as it was all over the place. What is up with that? I must be hormonal or something.  *snorts*

Sutra, do you have a link handy? I think it would be a good idea to review it then discuss its use within the group.

I agree with all of you, honestly. A lot of good points have been made. Newbies usually want a label so they feel like they're a part of the community. However, whatever label they choose is often not quite accurate or even way off their mark. A few new folks seem to know that they aren't "this" yet and will state that they aren't sure. They'll eventually find something that suits them.

Some other little thing about WT  I don't know if any of you ever chack out new members(I do) you will find a lot  of them are fake done to drive up numbers that means more dollars for the owner. 

 I have seen as many as 85 hit the site at one time , Now tell me this  who ok theses "folks". See WT about one thing and one thing only Money.. the more members the more you get in add traffic. The more Add traffic the More Money you get to put in the offshore bank of your choosing.

If a newcomer is still sorting out what path to take yet is looking for a label, the safest bet is to simply state that they are a pagan - regardless of whether they're looking into witchcraft or not. "Pagan" is sufficient generic and covers much of the bases - it doesn't matter if the person is mono-duo-poly-theistic or pantheistic, or whether they (intend to) practice magick or not. That really can suffice until they've decided on a specific path.
