    Psychiccupid that doesn't sound dumb or childish to me at all! not too different from my own tradition as I follow a Welsh based practice believing in Celtic deities and such.

    Hehe no problem

    Yeah I have very specific deities which I focus on. Here in Wales we have a set of tales known as the mabinogi. The Druids of the island treat this book like their bible, the tales in it speak of Annwn the 'underworld' counterpart of our side of the world, magical horse deities, witches, Wizards, Giants, and all sorts.

    We have deities such as Rhiannon, Ceridwen, Llyr etc. Rhiannon is now modernly known as a horse goddess (with ties to epona) Ceridwen a witch goddess, and Llyr is the sea. These are but a few. What's interesting about the mabinogi though is that these figures are never referred to as 'Gods' they are normal people and witches and such.

    But yeah that's kinda a small section of my practice any who.

    I've been delving into creating Spiritual Portraits lately; I hope to someday get a commission for a full Spiritual Painting! Right now I'm working with paper, pen, and coloured pencil.

    Wanting to get more into crystal gazing, and still need to put together some sort of personalized "casting set", mermaid-themed of course . First, though, my tarot cards are asking for a new bag, because the one I made long ago is more of a purse than a case, and they need something more portable so I can carry them around easier. However, I'm getting the sense more and more that the deck I have now is supposed to be more for my own personal reading than for others, so I have my eye on a couple of other decks to hopefully acquire this year.

    Psychiccupid, my first and longest running guide is Ares
    Take the wave now and know that you're free
    Turn your back on the land face the sea
    Face the wind now so wild and so strong
    When you think of me
    Wave to me and send me a song

    Hello, I'm coming on my 16th year as a practicing Wiccan. it's neat to see this thread here. Water is a very spiritual thing for me, and while I'm new to mermaiding in general I've already waxed philosophical about it. (Retreats back to lurking)

    Whilst I'm not a practicing pegan etc I met a lady who was once. She didn't like my mum and my mum said the woman was casting spells on her so she bought all the stuff to do this like reversal spell or something, basically anything anyone attempted to cast on her would bounce back onto them. It took her ages to find all the ingredients and the day after she found the last one and was going to actually perform the spell that lady's house burnt down (before she did it). Needless to say she decided against it.

    My apologises if I sound really ignorant or anything like that.

    if the woman really was casting negative spells on your mom (and probably others) then that right there is a prime example of the Threefold Law

    When I was in my teens, I could pick the first 3 winners in a horse race. I've always had an interest in tarot cards.

    I have had dreams that came true. I dreamt the Ash Wednesday fire and the next day I saw it on tv. It was very creepy. I've only told one person about my dreams and he's now a famous psychic in Sydney. That was years ago though. I don't have dreams like that anymore, maybe its because I stopped listening.

    I used to have such dreams. They were terrifying though.
    Also pretty much had spot-on premonitions, and could see through falsehoods immediately.
    (Didn't make me a popular person to be around )

    I think these abilities were strongest during my teens though, and gradually subsided the older I became.
    I read this also happens to other people (i.e., being strongest during and a short while after puberty).

    You just gave me a real cool idea though, Jaffa.
    I have tried unsuccessfully to predict the lottery countless times, but that means coming up with 7 numbers and I usually have around 3 spot on, the others usually just one number short, it's a hassle and not really suited for tarot cards.
    Horse racing though...with just a few horses participating...must do research!

    Wow, I'm wayy late to this party... But hi, practicing eclectic/secular witch here. I'm also and empath and privvy to herbal things. I'm an incense hoarder, and a tea fanatic. I love learning new things about different paths of the craft. Thank you for the reading list, it's quite nifty. I'm coming from a lazy Christian background. My mom never went to church unless it was Easter or Christmas eve. I've always felt pulled to nature and all the gifts she provides us. I recently started actively practicing again after some time due to being way in the broom closet. I'm so stoked that there are fellow mers on here that I have something in common with and can maybe bounce ideas off of.

    Yea, one of my Aunties used to get me to pick numbers lotto numbers from a jar for her (she still does whenever I go back for a holiday), she reckons I bring her luck. She's won little bits of money but nothing major. I used to tell her I could only do horses!!

    I've been asked many times how I did it. I used to say the colors were brighter, and everyone would look at me strangely.

    Managed to get a few lovely books yesterday whilst out and about! A local second hand book shop had a large assortment of witchy books!

    Managed to nab Witchcraft Today, a Gerald Gardner book! And witchcraft for tomorrow by Doreen Valiente to add to my Valiente collection so far.
    Also picked up a Celtic gods and goddesses one and two books on herbs and plants. Had a fantastic day!

    Then last night we also had our monthly moot where we discussed faeries, as it's close to Beltane. As well as Beltane traditions and folklore. Then of course we partied through the night haha. As witches should.

    ^^sounds lovely!
    I wish we had a coven of some sort where I live, but so far, I drew a blank.

    Germany is a witch-barren country, maybe coz the witch hunt was especially bad here, in a few cities (I've lived in one of them) there was not a single woman left alive when they were done burning.

    I get it!
    And I don't think anyone has managed to predict a lottery number combo with cards.
    Small change, yes, because it's possible to narrow down on some numbers, but a jackpot? Nah.

    Another Pagan Mermaid here! I am pretty eclectic and very Goddess oriented.

    Hey thur! I am an eclectic animist druid but I pull from Paganism, Buddhism, Shamanism and a few other things. I was raised Wiccan and grew up in a coven with lots of Witchey families. I am currently a part of my University's Neo-Pagan Alliance. A lot of my spirituality and my path is on my own although I do group rituals with the Club.
