Pagan survey

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Since my other blogs are focused on writing only, I thought that I'd post this here so I could at least fill out the answers to the questions. I got this from my friends new blog, bohemianwitch.blogspot.c
om
. I don't bring this up much but I am pagan, though not very good at the whole practicing part. I want to do better so maybe I'll sometimes post stuff here. For now, just the survey questions.


B A S I C S

-Do you have a magical/Pagan name? No. I looked for one when I was in high school, but haven't come up with one yet.
-What does it mean? N/A
-How did you find Paganism? I'm not exactly sure. I think I found tarot reading first since I started that back at the end of junior high. I can't pinpoint when I moved beyond that.
-Solitary or group practitioner? solitary. I live in small town Wyoming and used to live in Utah. Though I knew far more pagans in Utah.
-What is your path? Not completely decided. I've been very interested in Golden Dawn (Hermetics). It's a bit complicated and very difficult for a solitary but it still draws me in.


D E I T Y

-Who is your patron God? Don't have one yet though have a slight affinity to Hermes. Not sure why but Hermes always comes up in my mind.
-Who is your patron Goddess? similar to last one, Astarte has always drawn my attention.
-What Gods do you worship? still figuring things out. I go generic for now and often just tell people I worship The God and The Goddess.
-Do you fear darkly aspected Gods/Goddess, or rather respect them? Respect for sure. Balance.
-Do you worship the Christian God? No
-Do you ever worship animals? No
-Or plants? No


N A T U R E

-Do you regularly commune with nature? not as much as I'd like. I love going to the cabin in the mountains but don't do it much.
-Ever walked barefoot in the woods? not that I recall. I walk barefoot in certain buildings but not as often outside.
-Describe the moment you felt closest to Mother Earth? hard to pick a single moment right now.

-Have you ever called upon the powers of an animal in ritual? Only done two full rituals so not at this point
-Or a plant? See above answer.
-Do you hug trees? When I used to climb trees and almost fall out I might have hugged them.
-Give them gifts? I poured ritual wine into the earth at the base of a tree once in attempt to celebrate Yule.
-What is your favourite flower to work with? I love wildflowers but haven't worked with flowers much to have a particular one for this question.
-What is your favourite tree to work with? none yet.


W H E E L . O F . T H E . Y E A R

-What is your least favorite holiday? none
-Have you ever held a ritual on a holiday? My first group circle was on Samhain.
-Ever taken a day off work to celebrate a Pagan holiday? No
-Do you celebrate Yule on the 21 rather than the 25? tried once, but whole family does christmas so that's the 25th
-Have you ever felt the veil thin? not really.
-Ever danced the Maypole? No.
-Know what the Maypole symbolizes? that I do *winks*

D I V I N A T I O N

-Do you use Tarot? Used to, but rarely use them right now.

-Do you use astrology? No. Will look at it sometimes but not often.
-Any other form of divination? online for fun but I like Tarot.


S P E L L S

-A healing spell? Not yet.
-What was the most powerful spell you’ve ever performed? Not really into spells.
-What deities do you usually call on? general The God and The Goddess for now. still figuring things out.


C R Y P T O Z O O L O G Y

-Do you believe in Vampires? energy vampires, not so much the blood drinking kind.
-Werewolves? eh, not so much
-Shapeshifters? hmmm depends
-Elves? Sure
-Faeries? Absolutely. They like to hide my things and once changed a bracelet from one type of metal to a different kind. I also think they watch over me when I'm driving.
-Dragons? yep
-Nymphs? yeah
-Sprites? sure
-Mermaids? why not
-Satyrs? hmmm not sure
-Ever “seen” any of the above? seen seen, not quite. they are good at keeping out of sight

-Do you have one of them as a personal guardian? Probably. hard to tell for sure right now.


R A N D O M

-Do you see a rabbit, a man or a woman in the moon? Not in the real moon, so jewelry like Mireyah said.
-Own a cat? wouldn't say own. My cat passed away but we have 11 around the house right now
-When you meditate, what does your happy place look like? Not sure, still haven't gotten the whole meditating thing down.
-Do you work with Chakras? Not currently
-Do you believe in past lives? Yep. Had a past life reading once but it wasn't completely accurate. I'm certain I was a gay male in a past life.
-If so, describe a few briefly: See above.
-Do you believe in soul mates? sure. Not quite the there is only one person out there for you type but all kinds of soul mates. I had a deja vu with a male friend in HS before we were even friends and there was always a strange connection between us.
-Do you have a spirit guide? maybe, have an interest in the crow/raven (hard to distinguish between the two in symbol. Had a symbol of one in the snow of my car once when I was questioning it that night.
-Is it always love and light? no way. Chaos doesn't allow that. It would be hard to have real love if there wasn't pain as well.
