Question for all! The more answers, the better...

I am starting a monthly "Q&A" post for my blog. And I would like actual questions to answer rather than trying to make up questions to answer - which is kinda what I do every time I write a blog post anyways...

So, IF you are NON-PAGAN/WITCH, what questions do you have that you would ask if you had a Q&A session with a Pagan Witch?

IF you ARE PAGAN/WITCH, what common (or not so common) questions have you gotten that you think should be included.

  • Why do "pagans" believe (insert any stereotype that is not universal to all pagan religions any more than transubstantiation is universal to all Christians)?

    at what age?
    If you worship as a group do you have any joining ceremonies or do members take classes like they might in other religions?

  • Do you really cast "spells" and do they work? What makes you believe that they do? What's the most "magical" thing you've ever witnessed as a result of your "spells", etc.? What led you to this particular religion/belief?

  • Does every Pagan/Wiccan believe the same things you do?
    I don't hear this one often, but I think people need to understand that not all Pagans/Wiccans believe the same things.

  • The questions in the above posts are great. Also, I'd be interested to know about what led you to your religious beliefs. Not to get personal, just because I'm always curious as much about someone's spiritual journey, and how she got where she is in her beliefs, as I am about religious practices or doctrines.

  • The significance of the moon. The lunar calendar and holidays maybe?

    So not sure if this is true but t.v. Makes spell casting on full moons seem more powerful.
