The knack: How to be a witch
Saturday 31 October 1998
Once through your first degree initiation, you can take part in the rituals. These celebrate the eight Sabbats (festivals), and are used for healing purposes, for scrying (predicting), or to influence people and events. Finally, with regards to attire, you can work robed, in your everyday clothes, or skyclad (naked). Working skyclad should not, of course, be confused with a prurient interest in sex." Interview by Fiona McClymont
Kate West is co-author of `Born in Albion', a book about witchcraft, available from Pagan Media, part of the Pagan Foundation (01928 770909 or e-mail email@example.com). Artemis can be contacted at BM Artemis, London WC1N 3XX. Pagans will be celebrating the Sabbat of Samhain (Hallowe'en) tonight.
