Wielding my blessed wind roarer at Men-An-Tol, West Penwith, Cornwall
What is a Wytch?
For me, to be a wytch is to be a wyse woman or man, a healer, a diviner and a traverser of realms, who has knowledge of herblore and works magically with the unseen natural forces of the Land, Sea and Sky to enhance the well-being of their community and the earth.
The word witch derives from Old English and has two genders, the female being wicce meaning wise woman, and the male being wicca meaning wise man
'I am Wicce. hear me roar! In shadows I will hide no more! No more shall men deter my fate, nor lead me to the gallows gate. From burning ashes I now soar, I am wicce, hear me roar!
Exert from a poem by Michelle Mari Elliott
