Magical Overlap?
« on: November 01, 2018, 07:13:38 pm »
I'm looking to consolidate my practice into something more coherent & manageable. Gods that sounded like an insurance advert lol.

Anyway, currently my path contains deities from Slavic, Celtic & Finnish pantheons. I work within a Wiccan framework as that's what I'm most comfortable with. However, when it comes to magical working I'm pretty flexible.

Going back to my main point, I figure that forming an organised magic system would be a good foundation on which I can build a cogent practice.

So, in an incredibly round-a-bout way I'm asking if there's any overlap in the Finnish, Celtic and Slavic magical systems.
I realise that the terms Celtic and Slavic are pretty broad. I can narrow down my area of interest in Celtic magic to the practices that occurred in the British Isles. Having said that I am totally down to learn about the magical goings on among the European Continental pagans. But I think I have enough on my plate at the moment. lol

However, I feel trying to narrow down Slavic magical practices might be a bit of a task. ^^; I realise that they're not a homogeneous group of people. However, I feel the waters may get a tad muddied trying to unpick the differences in magical practices of individual Slavic countries. I don't wish to be disrespectful by lumping all Slavic people together. But I'm looking for something that's beginner friendly, that I can perhaps build upon at a later date.

I'm sorry if this was rambling or long winded, I'm awfully tired and about to call it a night.  ;D'

If you need any clarification please feel free to tell me that I'm making no godsdamn sense.  ;)
