I warble and tweet at my birb - a little parakeet! I also try to get him to say "Pretty bird - TWEET!"

That's completely untrue, also there is no such thing as a "true witch", witchcraft is something that is tied inherently into humanity and can be performed by anyone. Also there is no forbidding of casting spells on others.

never even made a poppet, and don't have any dead animal parts.


These are from two entirely different magical traditions. Poppets are "sympathetic magic" with its origins in the British Isles, and using animal parts is found in traditions such as Santeria, Voudou, and Appalachian Folk magic.

What I DO have is a garden full of animals and fairies.


You most certainly do not have Faeries in your garden, nor do you want to. Faeries are not the pretty, gauzy, little things that flit about. That is an image created about 200 years ago, stemming specifically from the Victorian Romantic period. Have you done any research on The Fae? They're terrifying creatures, who do not care for humans, and would love to trick, kill, kidnap, or steal from us. They originate in the Irish folklore, and are called "Fair Folk" or "Aes S�*dhe", only to appease them and keep them away. Parents back in the day were genuinely terrified their babies would be taken by the Fae and replaced with Changelings. In many places in the UK, roads are STILL not built through Faerie Circles due to superstition. My grandma, born in Canada to Irish immigrants, taught me from a young age to never walk through a Faerie Circle, and to turn my jacket inside out to confuse the Faeries.

Please, for you own sake, do your research before calling yourself a "true witch" with "a garden of fairies" and messing with those aspects of spirituality. Faeries look and act far more like the thing from "Stranger Things" than Tinkerbell from "Peter Pan".

Endless Galaxy: "do your research" !!! I disagree with your assessment of...everything. Research would show YOU that the definitions of the words I used is NOT cast in stone. Historically, etc, you are correct. But your "correctness" is not all-inclusive. Other research (and experience) would show you that nature spirits are called many things, and thought of in differant ways. I do not picture them as tiny winged humans, nor do I see them as particularly concerned with humans. And that is just ONE on the things you thought to "correct". The whole idea of witches, magic, spirit, is very complex.
I honor you enough to not call you names; honor MY spirit enough not to criticize me. Namaste
PS: this sort of reminds me of Christians who argue among themselves about what it means to "be" Christians and who should/should not call themselves Christians.

Namaste

Oh my goodness... why would you be upset at being criticized? I mean, a few years ago that would have upset me, but after having quite a few run-ins with a leafy-on-crack type and an Onision/Keemstar type stalker who used to criticize me rather harshly, I'm not going to worry that much about criticism. Honestly... life is too short to get upset over stuff like this.

I read astrological natal charts and am pretty decent at it,however I abstain from confessing this to anyone in real life,because people keep on badgering me to do and interpret a chart of theirs. It's not as simple as It seems ,really,well at least for me.hahaha

I sometimes will read numerous zodiac charts for various people, mostly for the shits and giggles of it.

For example, Dana Carvey and Bill Nye were born in the year of the Ram. Dana is a Gemini and Bill is a Sagittarius.

The reason I said "for the shits and giggles of it" is because there is little to no scientific evidence related to the readings. Like cats and dogs with breed standards, people will have deviations from the standards set for their star signs.

But still, I work on psychology in my spare time, given I spend a fair amount of time being analyzed for my benefit. However, I don't think I would take up psychology for a living.

Sometimes I wonder if John Lennon's soul jumped to me while I was in utero... he died just a month before I was born. Then again... he had more talent with music than I ever did. My birthday is the anniversary of a school shooting that inspired the song "I Don't Like Mondays" and just before I think... my sixth birthday? the Challenger exploded. So sometimes I think I'm a walking curse.

Don't talk about John in my presence,because you're putting your life at risk.

I like his singing, but he was a big jerk to Yoko and Julian. He actually beat Yoko and cheated on her... maybe his aspiration would've been Romance. Still sucks though that he was killed.

Don't get me started with Yoko. There's something ineffably unnerving about her ,that nonchalant gaze and seemingly reserved attitude which doesn't resonate with what she did with her life and peeps that surrounded her . Even when she looks at her own child in the older photos,it doesn't speak love at all. On the other hand,I can't blame her for being the way she was.That lassie had a terrible upbringing,been in a loon house once or mebbies god knows how many times...What's for sure,that woman wasn't in her right mind to begin with,though that's the only one quality of hers that I actually am fascinated with.Let's face it,not many would have the guts to "perform" such "art" like THIS out in the public .
As for John,I couldn't agree more,he was a jerk ,but he never hid It at all. He even stated in one of his interviews that you got to be the biggest bastard of them all to become this successful.He was real brute and at the same time very vulnerable as a person.

That piece that Yoko is performing could be used in a creepy doll anime soundtrack. And there are some tracks where her singing is actually mediocre.

Trying to multitask. I just look like a moron. I will be working on schoolwork (like readings, discussions, watching videos, taking quizzes - ALL AT THE SAME TIME), eating, playing a game on my phone, playing The Sims, and then watching more Sims LPs on YouTube. Wow. It is so hard....lol.
