Yes, and no. I believe there are some things that have a natural magic to them. Not the flashy "abracadabra" type. More of an earthy natural kind. I think there is magic associated with nature and souls. The way some people are recharged and refreshed by the ocean, and others by the forest. Some people find their peace in a quiet room doing yoga, others need to feel grass on their toes.
I think magic is most evident around big thunder and lightening storms. Everything brews and comes to a head, then afterwards we have the chance to begin anew. The rain absolves us of our mistakes, and that smell opens our hearts.

But witchcraft, in my opinion, has been twisted by modern interpretations. I don't think it's about lighting red candles and throwing salt around. I think it comes down to doing something completely focused and with intention. Whether your intentions are good or bad is up to you. But, I wouldn't mess around trying to use magic to punish someone. That does more damage to you than to them.

Is this because of the aura question? Fucking Saturday has me waxing philosophical. I thought this was a Sunday theme.

I love the poety in your answer. It was very visual. You should write a book. You've obviously thought alot about it. I love this conversation it's better than baby names & troll bashing.

I have several friends who are pagan so yes witches exist. I believe in magic in the sense of focussing your good intentions to send out blessings. Similar to christians praying i guess

Yes, much like the wonderful answer above. I am pagan and consider myself a witch. It's about the energy and how you work with it. I've always come and gone from it due to the social discrimination but find that I feel better within myself when I practicing. I'm out of the broom closet 🤣 .

Thanks for asking 😊seeings as we're in the southern hemisphere I try to celebrate the holidays when they're meant to be according to seasons. For example Easter or Ostra is the celebration of spring, birth, new life, new harvest etc. That's why we see it symbolised in eggs, rabbits,flowers etc. Its got nothing to do with Jesus its actually about the seasons. (Watch Zeigsts the greatest story ever told). Im more inclined to honor the earth/universe rather than follow goddesses or gods, but I do still pay respects to them. I still celebrate with the northern dates because you know social norms. I also do full moon releasing ceremonies, new moon manifestations, practice caring for the earth, garden, pick up rubbish, try not to be wasteful. I meditate and do spell work when I need too. I try and use my intuitive and healing gifts to help others (if they are OK with that stuff)

I believe in it but not everyday kind of way. I don't think the lady next door is a witch but I do believe something like that exists on some level, like alien's & ghosts etc. I'm not arrogant enough to think just because I have seen it myself that it doesn't exist. The world is full of mysteries yet to be proven, i keep an open mind.
