37- Old Dorothy Clutterbuck (January 19, 1880— January 12, 1951). English witch, or literary creation?

Perhaps one of the most controversial and enigmatic figures of British Witchcraft, Dorothy Clutterbuck was, for many years, believed to have never existed at all. While the jury is still out as to her existence and/or involvement with witchcraft, Old Dorothy remains one of the earliest known alleged practitioners of pre-Wiccan British Traditional Witchcraft. In the very least, she is a literary creation and archetype used to establish the origin myth for the tradition that has become Wicca and Modern Witchcraft.
Her story, of course, begins with the father and founder of Modern Witchcraft, Gerald Gardner. It was Gardner who first claimed to have discovered a secret witch-cult, the New Forest Coven. As a member of this coven, Dorothy Clutterbuck (Old Dorothy as Gardner called her) was said to have initiated Gardner into the New Forest group in 1939. Henceforth, Old Dorothy has been an elusive figure who is seen as the impetus behind the resurgence of the ancient and hidden practice of witchcraft. Unfortunately, whether or not this is all true remains a mystery lost to time.
What has been discovered of an historical, existent Dorothy Clutterbuck comes through the sleuthing and detective work by the Mother of Modern Witchcraft, our beloved Doreen Valiente (#86). Doreen spent years searching through birth and death certificates (along with various other records) trying to authenticate the claims made by Gerald Gardner. By 1985, Doreen’s discoveries lead her to believe Gardner and the existence of Dorothy Clutterbuck.

Lo siento, mi hijo enfermó y posiblemente yo también en cuestión de días. Así que las entregas presenciales serán suspendidas dos semanas (menos los envíos). Si enfermo yo, más 😭. Ya que es super contagiosa la peste cristal.
Espero estar bien para #nosvemosenleyenda y @feriagotica u.u por mientras haré todos los pedidos pendientes y stock u.u pueden abonar reservando o pagando el total de lo que quieran.

Happy Ostara! And Happy Mabon!
Welcoming the spring here in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s a beautiful rainy and foggy morning.
Was on the train to work as the sun came up and there was a light fog drifting through the bushland close to home. It was very dreamy, wish I had snapped a photo. But instead here are some flowers at my local cafe. :)

You know what sucks right now? I can't show you that five Swift's just went into my chiminey. I'll try again tomorrow. Really it's so cool that I have other souls living in my 🏠. I can hear little chirp's and flutters. Makes me and my house happy.
I always bless and include them when i do my wards. They are a part of the house.

Moon water is water infused with the Moons energy. It's essentially that beautiful moon energy in a bottle to have when you need it. You can use it to anoint sacred tools, candles, charge/cleanse your home. It adds a bit of magick to any daily tasks that involve water. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do you make it? Well I'll tell you how I do😌You're "supposed" to use water from a natural source (lake, spring, ocean etc) but sometimes that's not possible depending where you live & resources not at your disposal. If you plan on digesting it, make sure it's safe to do so! You shouldn't be drinking ocean water but you should know😏 I use tap water. You fill up a clear container, I like glass and leave it out during full moon peak hours while remembering to bring it in before the sun comes up. What I do is place my container as directly under the moonlight as I can,  sometimes that involves leaving it in odd places like the hood of my car or by the mailbox. Not everyone feels comfortable doing that though, so just put it out somewhere safe once the sun is all the way down,  as long as it's not covered with a physical object, you'll be ok. I like to keep my container open slightly if I can. I usually set my alarm for around 3am & go back out to bring it inside before the morning Sun & I store it in the back of a cabinet so it stays in a darkish space, for me, it keeps the energy more pure and as powerful as that night. If you don't reach it before the morning, don't panic, I wouldn't throw the whole batch away. It's just a tad bit less vibrant, like bright colors 😆 Some will disagree but doing your own research backed up with your intuition will help! You can also add gemstones to add more magical properties, some are toxic so double check if you plan on digesting it. 🌛🌝🌜Happy Full Moon!🌛🌝🌜

I went to work with Jake today and got to spend my day around a bunch of antiques. It was really fun. I love him a bunch 💚💜💕

Anxiety is merely an interpretation. It is something that you take, not something that you get. It’s the way you react to events that determines your happiness, not the event itself.
