Witches: Does your transness play a part in your craft?

(1/2) > >>

charadreemurr:
I'm curious, because being trans plays basically no part in my craft if any at all. Also, what parts and how? I'm a storm witch mostly and I don't see any openings in my craft for gender to really play a part.

genderlessjolyne:
like???
mine makes it so that the whole binarism of popular paganism in general is really frustrating
like, wOW LOOK THE HOLY GENDERS, THE TWO HOLY GENDERS THAT ARE BASED ON THE TWO EXCLUSIVE GENITAL SETS THAT ARE TOTALLY IN NO WAY NATURALLY FLUID, THESE TWO HOLY GENDERS AND NOTHING ELSE GENITAL SETS PRAISE THE GODS

so on hand im really feeling paganism, on the other hand cis people need to stop

ps sweet undertale username pal

genderlessjolyne:
i rambled a bit but my point is:
much like my gender, my religion (such as it is) is pulled together myself, built from myself and my needs and emotions
it is very much ah
not prepackaged, i guess
so i suggest that you do the same

'pop-culture' storm magic (i hope i have that right?) not working for you?
like
break that <poo> with a hammer
pick up the pieces that you want
and sweep the ones that'll only cut you into the trash
then get more shards, if you need them
and then blowtorch it all together
set it on fire if you need to
gender and magic are both tools for your needs
why use something that doesn't help you?

This description of Certain Paths (not naming any names) is a true thing of beauty.

Personally, my gender woobliness doesn't play a big role in my practice. I worship a very masculine male war deity, who considers my struggles with mental illness and dysphoria as a very real war to be fought and survived. He doesn't really care where along the spectrum I fall as long as I fight in his name (against the aforementioned mental illness) and spread the good word (which I do as often as I can).

Thea:
I was always taught that magic happens in the places in between, hence the symbolism of the triad. The This, the That, and the Neither/Both. My mother and Grandmother said that twilight and dawn are the most open times for magic and that fall and spring the most open seasons. Samhain and Beltane are the times when the veil between the worlds is at it's thinnest. They also taught that androgynous and trans people make the most powerful practitioners.
