Real Name: Anne, though most people call me Annie.
Name I go by in the Pagan community: Anne Elizabeth or Kieran. I retired the name Anouchka recently, because it is associated with a part of my life that I no longer wish to think about or be a part of.
Solitary Casting: Most of my casting is done solitary. I am a very private person when it comes to my spells and rituals unless I know you well, and even then a lot of the time I'd rather cast alone. I don't have anything against casting with others, but sometimes it seems more spiritual when done alone.
Group Casting: When I do cast in a group, it is with people that I know well. Casting is very spiritual and not something I can do with whoever happens to be Pagan today. I cast with people who are serious about their craft and with people who can easily flow into different ways of casting.
One On One Casting: I like to do one on one casting more than group casting because it's more likely that 2 people will connect with one another than 4 or 5.
My Pagan Dream: My pagan dream is very different now than it was a year ago. I think that someday, I would still love to own my own occult bookstore/library/center, but for now, I am returning to the basics of paganism to review, and to find my path, which I somehow lost along the way.
Favorite Stone: I have 3 favorite stones...
1. Petrified Wood
2. Picasso Marble
3. Lapis Lazuli
Favorite Tree: I also have 3 favorite trees!
Favorite Herb: My favorite herb is vervain/verbena, which is great for a lot of things including warding off psychic attacks (it has worked for this purpose for me).
Favorite Flower: Again, I have 3 favorites here!
1. Wildflowers of any kind
2. Red Verbena Flowers
3. Red or Orange Lillies
Favorite Pagan Authors:1. Scott Cunningham
2. Claire Nahmad
3. Edain McCoy (Celtic Myth & Legend)
Favorite Pagan Films:1. Merlin (Hallmark Film)
2. The Craft
3. Practical Magic
Favorite Elements In Order:I don't think it's right to pick "favorite elements" because you should work harmoniously with all of them.
Well, looks like a lot has changed, and a lot has stayed the same, depending on how you look at it!
