I’m not sure what it is, but I get this nagging feeling every time I read wiccan blogs, books or articles or watch YT videos, I feel like I’m not practising properly. I know I am living the life of the witch correctly, but the whole phenomenon of living my own life without copying other people makes me feel odd. Don’t get me wrong I love living the way I do, it’s fun, educational, emotional and well frankly… unique. I am proud to be an eclectic witch, but I can’t help but feel numbed down because everyone else I see practice a very similar type of Wicca than I do.
For example, when I call the quarters I call the Four Sons of Horus, I do a libation every so often to Apollo and other sun Gods like Helios, Aset, Nebet-Het, Sekhmet my matron etc. I like to work with the energies of the sun as well as the moon. My Sabbat celebrations are slightly different to others as I follow a set of festivals and holy days that were used during the Ancient Kingdoms. I am going to celebrate The Resurrection of Osiris on May 1, whilst everyone else will follow the rite of Beltaine. I love my life and the magick within; it spurs me on everyday to push past my potential!
Does anyone celebrate Gods birthdays besides Buddha?? I mean Apollo day is coming up on the 7th of the 7th, what will you do? And the annual Roman festival of Jupiter is coming up again on the 15th of May, anyone doing anything special?? You see my point… I’m a total loner with this… but I would love to know what things others do that make them feel unique too. It would be grand!!
You all inspire me in ways I can’t explain and it’s wonderful! Keep up the good work and may the Gods be with you!!
