This is a questionnaire/survey of sorts that I've seen popping up on a few blogs. I thought it would be a good way to give and get some insight to me.
Do you have a magickal name?
Well, no not really. When I first started exploring I picked Cerridwen, then
switched to Morgaine, but they are what I was attracted to. I think if/when I am to have one I'll know it and it won't be something I think I'm supposed to have.
Does it have a special meaning?
See above. If/when I get one, it will.
How did you find Wicca/Paganism?
It found me. I was feel I was called to it. The
first time I was about 15 or 16. I was in the Village with my
mom and we were passing a store called the Mystical Childe.
I immediately felt a strong pull to go inside, I felt like I was being
called to the Path but I couldn't act on it at the time.
How long have you been practicing?
I've explored on and off since then when I could find things. I wouldn't
say I was practicing yet, but rather learning still.
Solitary or group practitioner?
Solitary, I don't really know anyone that share's my yearning to learn and
explore. Being in the "bible belt" doesn't help either.
What is your path?
I'd have to say at this point probably eclectic, but I'm feel a strong desire
to seek a Celtic Path.
Are you out of the broom closet?
Definitely hiding deep inside for now.
Who are your patron Gods?
None that I'm specifically drawn to.
Who are your patron Goddesses?
Ones that I feel drawn to are Lilith, Morgaine, and Bast.
Which Gods/Goddess' do you worship?
See above. I wouldn't say I'm worshiping at this time, but I
am drawn to them and learning about them.
Do you fear dark aspects of the Gods/Goddess, or rather, respect them?
I don't think I fear it in a hide under my bed sort of way, but I do
most definitely respect them.
Do you worship the Christian God?
No. I used to because it was what I was told I had to do.
Being raised Catholic, and then being born again for a while and having
it drilled into you that it's that way or no way...well you probably know the
deal. I do respect others that do though.
Do you ever worship animals?
Do you regularly commune with nature?
I try to go outside when its not too cold or when
the pollen count isn't through the roof.
Ever walked barefoot in the woods?
Not that I can remember.
Taken a camping trip just to talk to nature?
No I haven't.
Describe the moment you felt closest to Mother Earth?
This one time I went up into the woods behind my house and there
is a circular clearing under the trees. I think some might call this a
Faerie Circle. But anytime I've gone in it, it's always so peaceful and
What is/are your power animal(s)?
Cats I guess. I had a dream of a bobcat once, I think it was protecting me.
Do you have a familiar?
I think so. I don't know it's name. I have seen it, a cat, usually sitting at my
right. I always seem to see it when I least expect it, though if I try to look at
her (I think its a girl) she disappears.
Have you ever called upon the powers of an animal in ritual?
Or a plant?
Do you hug trees?
Not in a long time, especially since several up in the woods have poison ivy on them.
Give them gifts?
What is your favorite flower to work with?
Don't have one yet. Though lavender keeps coming to mind.
What is your favorite tree to work with?
I'm not sure actually. My girls find these branches lying in the woods
when they go exploring. One branch I was just so drawn to I had to have
it. I made my wand with it.
Wheel of the Year
What are your favorite holidays?
Samhain and Yule
What if your least favorite holiday?

always afraid I'm going to do it wrong.

No I haven't
Do you celebrate Yule on the 21 rather than the 25?
No, on I do it on the 25th for now for my girls.

How do you usually celebrate the pagan holidays?
At this time I don't really do much other than acknowledge them in my

Do you believe in Vampires?

See vampire answer.
I think it might be possible.
Elves? Faeries? Dragons? Nymphs? Sprites? Mermaids? Sirens? Satyrs?
Well if I can believe in Elves, Faeries, and Dragons, I can believe in the others

Ever met one?
Do you have a Spirit guide?
If I do, they haven't revealed themselves to me.
Is it always love and light?
Well, I try not to hate anyone or anything as it does nothing
for me. But I can't love everything either. And without darkness
there can be no light and vice versa, so IMO you need both darkness
