  • Being Pagan simply means not being of the Islamic, Jewish, Abrahamic(sp) religions...
    Not all Pagans practice Witchcraft nor are they all of the Wiccan Religion...
    Also not all Wiccans practice the Craft either....
    Also Practitioner is used a lot when speaking of Witchcraft...

  • You're probably thinking of Pagan. But it's not really witchcraft like Wiccan is.

  • I don't know what 'wtichcraft' is but I do know what 'witchcraft' is.

    But assuming you meant witchcraft.....

    pendulum - a divination tool
    spirit possession / riding the loa - a form of spiritual possession / trance work
    Palmistry - the reading of palms

    Not really sure what you're looking for.

  • Free- I am aware of it and I have gotten a reading from a practitioner but I am not that familiar with it myself. I do know it involves invoking a spirit through a medium and a translator and they use things like powdered egg shells and coconuts for divination. And I believe they used gods named Oshun and Obatala. And I know it is a bit darker than the standard American Wicca and it has similarities with Santeria. HTH.

  • Do you mean a specific path, or something that describes witchcraft? Pictish is one path that I can think of. It's a Scottish trad. I've also heard some forms of Pictish Wicca called Peti-Wicca. Pagan, pantheistic, and polytheistic could all be used to describe witchcraft.
