witches and witchcraft
- A witch is a female shaman, typically including divination (astrology, palmistry, Tarot, I Ching, etc.), healing (herbal medications, aromatherapy, massage, sacred sexuality, etc.), and magick. (see note below about male witches)
- The practice of any of the arts of a witch or the religion of a witch.
There is a lot of confusion over exactly what witchcraft is. Part of this confusion is because witch has a lot of different meanings, and the number of meanings is expanding rapidly. The preceeding definition is a root definition, from which the many modern defintions are derived. Obviously there will be a lot of modern witches who dont match the root definition. Were not trying to exclude them. In particular, we are not trying to discriminate against guys. Of course men can be witches. Traditionally, witches are women, but there have always been a small number of male witches. In modern times it is much more common for males to become witches. Before you fire off a protest letter about males being witches (we get a lot of those), please read about the early history and development of witchcraft and you will understand the intimate relationship between early witchcraft and womens mysteries, particularly the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and childbirth.
A dissenting opinion: Hey Milo, My name is Crystal (CrystalPixie on the web). Just ran through the main page, and I have a big suggestion for you. Find a more accurate definition for the word witch. I am a Witch, but I would never consider myself a Shaman. The title Shaman should be reserved for those who have had the proper training and everything that goes along with it. If you would like more information on Shamans, find one, they will tell you that they are not witches, most of the real Shamans are natives of their land (the Native Americans, Alaskans, Africans, South Americans especially from the tribes in the Amazon, get my drift?) and have been trained by an elder of their tribe or clan. With all of the young ones that call themselves witches I doubt that very many of them would fall under such a catagory. If youre going to have a domain name like teenwitch youre going to get A LOT of traffic from the wannabes (I do not mean this offensively but this is the only term I can find that correctly fits the 13-15 year olds that are into witchcraft because they think its kewl) and using inaccurate definitions you could spread bad information (then again, promoting Silver Ravenwolf will do that as well). Do yourselves a favor, ask around in the adult Pagan community for opinions and information.
Bright Blessings with Love and Light,
Reply: The term shaman has many different meanings, including a highly restrictive meaning indicating a spiritual leader with advanced culture-dependent training (such as the kind that you mention). The use on the web site TeenWitch.com is in the more generic version common in archaeology.
