What is your own personal path in paganism?
Oh! Oh it’s changing all the time. I started out as a Wiccan, but I can never really pick a single path. I have to explore everything, you know? I joined a druid organization a few years back just to check that out, I worked with people who practice a lot of hoodoo and voodoo – which is the coolest and very interesting – and lately I’m just learning more about some new age topics like yoga and crystal healing and meditation.
What do people misunderstand the most when it comes to witchcraft?
I think people believe that anyone who believes in magick or practices witchcraft has a tenuous grip on reality or that they’re highly irrational people. Of course there are also stereotypes like that they’re evil or practice human sacrifice or whatever, but I think people just misunderstand that witchcraft is just a tool people use to answer questions they have about life. To offer guidance.
It’s no different than doing things scientifically, or getting guidance from a catholic priest: it’s just spookier .
What advice what you give to beginners?
Oh just have an open mind and trust yourself. If something is interesting to you, find a respectful way to learn more about it. Try things. and read books. New witch books coming out are fantastic. FANTASTIC. like my to-read list will take me forever to get through.
How does your paganism affect your fat activism?
It gives me a way to connect to my body that’s very loving, and that really keeps me going. I get very worn down dealing with fatphobia or just some of the issues I mentioned earlier, and magick gives me a way to recharge my batteries and remind me why fat people are worth fighting for
