Shadows of Solitary Witches is once again looking for active members who have an interest in traditional craft.
Historically witches would have pracitced their artes alone. This coven is for those who have chosen an otherwise solitary path but who still wish to share or learn witch lore with other like-minded witches.
We are concerned with traditional, and traditionally inspired, artes and with re-creating, as far as it is possible, the feel of European witchcraft between the 15th and 19th centuries. Because of this Solitary Witches focuses more on practical magic and spirit work and does not shy away from malefic witchcraft.
The group also looks into various polytheistic paths, especially Mediterranean-based mystery cults (Orphic, Eleusinian), Romano-British gods, Brythonic deities and any aspects of local folklore.
Solitary Witches benefits from an active and experienced priesthood who are willing to share their knowledge and discuss techniques for hedgecrossing (astral travel), spirit work, spells, charms and recipes. Members also get full access to the coven website.
Potential members should be willing to post at least once a week or appear in the coven chatter with something approaching regularity, and have an interest in traditional craft regardless of their background and previous studies.
Please have a bio with a little something about yourself (note that song lyrics and poems don't count) and an avatar image. Mail me with a completed questionnaire, which can found on the main coven page. Note that applications without the questionnaire are always rejected.
