Introductions and Explanations

Kia Ora I’m a Tea Drinking, Urban Witch and Textile Artist.  Welcome, to my little corner of the interwebs, all the way down here in Wellington, New Zealand, situated in the Southern Hemisphere. Where the seasons are opposite to that of the Northern Hemisphere and we cast our circles in an anti-clock wise.

I first became interested in things spiritual and magical when I was around 18, and I am nearly 43 now so a few years ago. As an 18 year old I had a wee way to go before I would fall upon Witchcraft, or as I like to say it fell upon me. It was not until I was about 25 did I meet my first Witch, who became my introduction to things Witchey. I remember her first words to me ‘So you’re a Witch then.” It was not a question, and oddly or not so oddly that just felt right.

I am a Witch of no particular flavour, as here in New Zealand courses, classes and teachers are far and few between, but I have had one or two, unofficial teachers and mentors. I have read, oh how I have read, so much so that my uncompleted masters was on Modern Pagan Books from 1954 to the Present day and the pagan Community. With my favourites or most influential ones being, Doreen Valente, Starhawk, Ronald Hutton, Dianne Sylvan, and our very own Juliet Batten, who wrote Celebrating the Southern Seasons, Rituals for Aotearoa, a must have for any practicing Pagan in New Zealand. And not just books on Witchcraft and Magic, as my degree is in Religious Studies and religions fascinate me.
