Please join me on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, 3-10-15 , 8-9 p.m. est. “Are you a good witch or a bad witch?” asked Glinda, if there’s one, there should be the other. There has never been a period or culture in which magick was not done, although it’s been disreputable in many. Let’s face it, if you can do something most people can’t explain, it’s going to make the others nervous that maybe you can do anything. If you can heal them, can’t you make them sick? If you can predict the future, can’t you influence it, or maybe take unfair advantage? If you’re clairvoyant or have telepathy, can you be trusted to not know their secrets?  These insecurities, and general poor understanding of how this stuff works has generated a lot of fear about psychics and magick users over the years. In the second half of the 20th century, Wiccans and Feminists embraced the name “Witch” to empower women and rehabilitate the term. While the public enjoyed fictional witches from Samantha to Sabrina to the Halliwell sisters, women like Lori Cabot, Starhawk and others have been “on the ground” helping others become witches. Scott Cunningham, Trish Telesco, Dorothy Morrison and other authors reached far more through books. The image of the “successful witch” has combined with that of author and public speaker, but the vast majority are still only known to be witches among friends. “What a witch is” is going to be different depending upon whether you’re in a family tradition, Strega, Gardnerian, Reclaiming, (in Africa where you still can be killed for it), or any of dozens of other types of witchcraft. There are huge differences between them, and yet have many things in common.
