Please Join CTCW’s Otherworldly on Zoom this Wednesday, January 3rd, 2024 at 8 PM Eastern time.
This week we’ll be talking about how you know if you are a witch.
Some wonder if they are a witch (especially if they are still learning it’s possible). I was told (back in the early 70s) “You’re a witch, I can always tell.” although I denied it, not being Wiccan. Dorothy, of course, mistakenly thought Witches were “all old and ugly”. On Buffy Willow and Tara disparaged the “wanna blessed-bes”. I think we can all agree that “if a woman weighs the same as a duck, she must be able to float on water, which means she is made of wood, and consequently must be a witch.”* is NOT a good definition. Neither is the common (Oxford) dictionary “a person thought to have magic powers, especially evil ones, popularly depicted as a woman wearing a black cloak and pointed hat and flying on a broomstick.”
On current social media self described “baby witches” wonder if they are doing enough magick, doing enough rituals, do they have the right stuff to be witches? I am old enough I don’t worry anymore. If asked I say “I don’t believe in magick, I just use it, daily.” At the same time, I tend to think that if you think you’re a witch, you probably are. But that does beg the question “How do you know?” How do you define witchcraft, and where is the Plimsoll** marking that says whatever you need, you have enough?
I do hope that people will join us ready to contribute their personal points of view on this topic.

People are psychic, magick is real, ghosts and other spirits exist, and people can heal with energy. Each culture around the world had come up with ways to explore these realities, and that’s great, we can learn from each other, that’s how we change the world.
The Changing Times-Changing Worlds Conference is a conference for learning about magick, psychic abilities, spiritual practices, divination, healing modalities, folklore, and similar skills; it takes place in early November each year in New England (or the upper east coast). Since we enjoy such topics all year, every Wednesday, we have the Otherworldly show, featuring many of our speakers, and similar topics.
We hope you can join us Wednesday at 8. If you miss this show, the recordings are posted on Youtube Thursday or Friday.

**Plimsoll mark is a marking on a ship’s side showing the limit of submersion legal under various conditions. (it’s very cool, and has nothing to do with whether witches are made of wood.)
