I have been a practicing witch for many years now and from time to time I am asked questions about my witchy lifestyle from those who are curious to know more.
I thought it would be helpful to answer some of those questions here so I have written this FAQ page for those who are interested.
Q: Who is Poet Moonsong?
A: Poet Moonsong is my Craft name – the name that I chose for myself when I began my Spiritual journey. My Craft name is essentially my ‘witch name’ and is what I call myself when I am working magick (and writing posts for this website). Although it is in no way necessary to have a Craft name, a lot of witches do as a means of separating the witch from their everyday public persona.
Q: What is witchcraft?
A: Witchcraft is an umbrella term for any Spirituality focusing on intent and belief. It is a personal practice rather than a set religion. There are many different paths to take and each witch will experience and practice different things in different ways.
Q: What kind of witch are you?
A: There are lots of different kinds of witches and some choose to specialise in different aspects of the Craft such as Faery Witchcraft, Green Witchcraft or Kitchen Witchcraft. I incorporate almost every kind in my own personal practice so I don’t think of myself as being a certain kind of witch. I simply am.
“A witch I am, a witch I be, nothing you can say will ever change me. A life without magick is not for me…” – Anon.
Q: What kind of witchcraft do you practice?
A: My Craft is a combination of Druidry, Hoodoo, Modern Wicca, Old Religion Witchcraft and Paganism.
I will update this page as often as possible so please do check back regularly.
