I have been a practicing grey witch for many years now and from time to time I am asked questions about my witchy lifestyle from those who are curious to know more.
I thought it would be helpful to answer some of those questions here so I have written this FAQ page for those who are interested.
Q: Who is Poet Moonsong?
A: Poet Moonsong is my Craft name – the name that I chose for myself when I began my Spiritual journey. My Craft name is essentially my ‘witch name’ and is what I call myself when I am working magick (and writing posts for this website). Although it is in no way necessary to have a Craft name, a lot of witches do as a means of separating the witch from their everyday public persona.
Q: What kind of witch are you?
A: There are lots of different kinds of witches who each specialise in different aspects of the Craft such as Faery Witchcraft, Green Witchcraft or Kitchen Witchcraft. I incorporate almost every kind in my own personal practice so I don’t think of myself as being a certain kind of witch. I simply am.
“A witch I am, a witch I be, nothing you can say will ever change me. A life without magick is not for me…” – Anon.
Q: What kind of Witchcraft do you practice?
A: My Craft is a combination of Druidry, Hoodoo, Modern Wicca, Old Religion Witchcraft and Paganism.
Q: Do you practice white or black magick?
A: I practice both. I am a grey witch, practising both kinds depending on the circumstances. I think it’s important to understand we all have a dark side. All witches hold in their hands the power to harm or to heal. The power lies in understanding which to use. This poem defines what a grey witch is and does:
“A Grey Witch I am and forever will be,
A balance of both dwells deep inside me.
For I am not Black nor am I White,
I walk in the darkness and in the light.
I seek no harm, my intentions are just,
But make no mistake, I will do what I must.
So heed of my word, I give you insight,
For I am Grey. I will defend, I will fight.”
I will update this page as often as possible so please do check back regularly.
