Sigils and Hiding Your Witchcraft Practice
2151
Have you wanted to get involved in witchcraft, but are you in a situation where being "out of the broom closet" may not be the most viable option? This episode is for all witches who feel that it is in their best interest to hide their practice from others, for one reason or another. The episode covers various ways that you can attempt to hide your practice and blend in your tools and magic, as well as a discussion on sigils and how to create them. It is advised to be safe while practicing and to not get yourself involved in a situation where practicing witchcraft can cause danger to yourself if others find out. Always be safe! Remember--hiding your practice, or not letting others know about your practice does not make you any less of a witch!
