E for Eclectic Witch

Eclectic Witch
An individual approach that picks and chooses from many different traditions and creates a personalized form of witchcraft that meets their individual needs and abilities. They do not follow a particular religion or tradition, but study and learn from many different systems and use what works best for them. Many Eclectic Witches refer to themselves as Solitary Practioners, Sorcerors, Hedge Witches, Green, White, and Grey Witches. Some consider themselves Wicca, as long as the Rede is adhered to, the Earth and the Universe revered. One main complaint made against the Eclectic Witch is that they are not true Wiccans because they build a taylor-made religion or tradition for themselves from the ground up rather than following an established or correct form of Wicca. Their minds remain open and are receptive to knowledge, ideas, beliefs and methods that others practice. They adapt well to different situations and create their own paths by what they believe to be true and right at that time in their life (simply put – they don’t follow rules). They like to explore and make their own mistakes and take from experiences in turn creating their own rules and traditions. It’s why you can bring 2 Eclectic Witches into a room yet they are totally different in the way they practise, live, and believe as they are all different in some way.

I am an Eclectic Witch. I have always been, it´s clearly my thing. But because I am also Wiccan, I kind of make my own rules. I don´t like people to say what I need to do so I decide it myself. And I am that kind of person who likes little bit this and that so.. this fit me. So maybe I make this post about in general witchy things because being eclectic means you are basically little bit of every witch type.

Side note: I am more of a pagan witch now a days, I believe in Finnish old faith/belief.  I made this post like a year ago, oh how things have changed in that time. I still like a lot of things, but I have been more focused on northern beliefs, specially in Finnish. So.. still kinda eclectic.

  • Are you an Eclectic Witch? You are a little bit of everything. This also means that you have a hard time making up your mind on some matters because you find interest in everything. You tend to fall hard in love. You probably could be/study anything!

Witchery Tips

-A quartz stone near the oven makes your food taste better.

-Get a lunar calendar to stay up-to-date with moon cycles.

-A full moon increases extrasensory perception and so is the perfect time for psychic spells, rituals or potions.

-Aphrodisiacs should always be prepared during the waxing moon.

-Trust your instincts.

-Always make your intent clear during a spell.

-Sage can smell like weed sometimes, be careful of that.

-Peach and avocado pits ward off negativity.

-Place rosehips in your wallet to attract prosperity.

-Use honey to sweeten the outcomes of your spells.

-Self-care is witchcraft. Baths are literal and metaphorical cleansing rituals. Drawing are like complex sigils to clear your mind and calm you down.


For E there were also these 2 types, but I think that they are well explained in these already, but I still wanted to mention them, although I am not going to make different post about them.

Embroidery / Sewing / Knit - One who embues magick into household “stitching” or “string” hobbies such as embroidery, sewing, knitting, stringing, and knotting ~ Basically, one who identifies with using knot or chord magick in many different skills.

Energy - Those who prefer to do magick through energy exercises and manipulation rather than with many physical tools or materials; using the enhanced power of the mind and the body’s natural energies to bring about a magickal result or feeling. (Also may include aura work)
