I am a Witch. I do not walk the straight and narrow. I walk the crooked path that leads to Ancient Woodlands, where the Fae still dance, where the trees are older than Time itself, where the dead walk alongside the living.
My path leads to a magickal place where great stone circles stand, where the darkness of night is absolute, where the Old Gods still walk the Earth.
In this place, I have flown with the Raven, ran with the Wolf, listened to the heartbeat of the Mother with the Serpent.
My Craft is my Soul. My crafts are my Soul’s expression.
I am Jessy. I am a Woman, a Mother, a Wife, a Sister, a Lover, a Teacher, a Creator, but most importantly, I am a Witch.
Married, Mother of two. Lactivist. Tarot Reader. Gemini Sun, Leo Moon, Libra Rising. Heathen in philosophy, secular in practice, eclectic in devotion.
I refer to myself as a Hearth Witch, though I suppose my craft is more of a hodge-podge of kitchen, hedge, and traditional witchcraft. My official training began on my birthday (June 8th, in case you were wondering) in 2001.
In 2005 I became the General Coordinator of the Silver Roan Circle & Community, a multi-faith, family-oriented witch’s circle, which serviced the Beauharnois-Salaberry & Vaudreuil-Soulanges areas of southern Quebec. We provided public events & workshops, and taught courses & apprenticeships, among many other things. I left that position in 2014, and the Circle disbanded in early 2015.
In 2013, I met my (now) husband, a fellow Witch, and in 2014, with the birth of our Pearl Girl, moved to the Laurentian Mountains. In 2016 we moved again, this time back to civilization, and, in September, our Sapphire Son was born. Today, I bask in my role as Mother and Wife in our tiny, familial Coven. We explore our practice and our faith together, while creating memories to last a lifetime and traditions to last generations.
Funny how things seem to circle back to the beginning sometimes.
