Witchcraft at its finest.
Anonymous asked: Does it count as cultural appropriation for me to worship gods or goddesses of religions not indigenous to my country? I'm Scottish, so should I be sticking entirely to Celtic deities or is it fine to "mix and match" with gods I feel a connection with, as long as it's in a respectful way? Or is this something that has too many schools of thought to come up with a clear answer?
With “cultural appropriation” being thrown around willy-nilly these days, it really depends on who you talk to. In my opinion, it’s just fine. Like I said before, I have worshiped Yoruban deities and the gods themselves have absolutely no problem with me asking them for their aid, even though I’m white. As long as you’re being respectful and you’re not doing something stupid like throwing on a headdress and getting drunk and taking off all your clothes or wearing a kimono to a nightclub I really see no problem.
I finally found the time and energy to properly welcome my Ancestors & An Cailleach and to celebrate the season. Offerings of baked apples, pumpkin muffins, roasted pumpkin seeds, whiskey and tea were made. The house has been sained, along with some other timely workings and divination.When my ritual and workings were over, I went outside and not only was it snowing, but there were a bunch of small white moths flying around. Moths are often seen as messengers from the Otherworld. I feel both the Storm Hag and my Ancestors near.May you all be reaping the blessings of this time!Laurel
