Of course! You can use gods from any pantheon. If you think about it, they’re all really the same. Greek, roman, and Norse mythology all have gods and goddesses of love, war, sex, peace, forests, oceans, sun, moon, etc. So it doesn’t natter which ones you worship or work with. It’s all a matter of which ones you like better. I also like Norse. But I also like Greek. So I have a hard time choosing myself lol

YOU DO NOT “USE” GODS

AND THEY ARE MOST CERTAINLY *NOT* “ALL REALLY THE SAME”

GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE WITH THAT SHIT

Reblogging for the bold.

Wow, you literally just found a way to piss off every single fucking Deity in known existence. I do not pity you. 

IN SOVIET VANAHEIM, GODS USE YOU

but yeahno.  You don’t use gods, soz.

To answer the anon’s question tho: yes you can be Norse Pagan and be a witch.  Freya herself was well known for being a magic user, which the lore said was in common practise among the Vanir.  There is a particular kind of Norse magic called seidhr which I personally feel is different from witchcraft (I might write about that sometime), but the Norse had magic users among them and people who were wise with knowing things, using herbs, etc.

I am for the record a Norse pagan (Vanatru, specifically) and I prefer to call myself a wizard, but I’ll concede to the term witch.

But ? I do use my deities??
I use them for companionship, as well as guidance in my life???
& they use me as well????
I thought this was a symbiotic relationship???????

Umm.. where did I ever say anything about using them?? And ya.. they are all similar… I gave examples. You don’t like what I say about gods, then don’t talk to me about them. It’s that simple.

Stop confusing this anon! And if I get any more messages about them, I will just delete them. I don’t have time to deal with drama. And yes, spirits-influenza, technically, we are using them, but I never said that anywhere..

*EDIT*

Oh ok I see what you guys are talking about… I was answering this question on my phone. I meant to say choose… That’s what I get for trying to use touch screen technology -.-

But holy crap.. that’s still no reason to bash on me like that…

I wasn’t bashing you, I thought what you said was perfectly fine in my opinion. But that’s just me o.o

Oh no I wasn’t talking about you. you’re the only one who reblogged it and understood what I was saying ^_^

Wow, the haters need to think about what they are practicing. “An ye harm none”?  Can’t we all get along?  Is this not the point of being Pagan, identifying with what we, yes, choose, and doing as we please, as long as we are good to each other.  Think before you freak out and say nasty things.  I read this Q&A earlier and it didn’t  phase me.  To me, the moment you start to tell other people how to worships what gods they identify with and how they can refer to them, you’ve thrown some basic tenants of being a Witch out the window.

Bella, sorry people over reacted, it must be sucky since your intensions were obviously innocent and kind.  I guess there is hate in  every community, it’s too bad.

stay the fuck away from me with that neowiccan garbage. the term “pagan” encompasses dozens of unique religions. you do not speak for all of us, you ignorant fool.

you absolutely do not get to do whatever you please, you fluffy moron. religions have rules. just because you label yourself as “eclectic” does not give you the right to disrespect deities and ignore those rules.

it didn’t “phase” you because you’re a fluffy neowiccan shit who doesn’t even understand that the wiccan rede does not apply to every pagan on the planet.

and what are these “tenants” of witchcraft, please enlighten me. because, y’know, being a pagan does not automatically make one a witch, and there is no central morality that every witch must follow.

I pity you your ignorance.

and belladonnaswitchblog​ shut the fuck up with that archetype nonsense. just because two deities share somewhat similar patronage does not make them the same.

belladonnaswitchblog if you say that Greek Gods are the same as any other pantheon again I’m gonna force you to eat a textbook

I'm not trying to offend you, I'm sorry. I guess it's just me but I don't care for race, people are people
xfools

lordbape:

You don’t get to say that. You don’t get to say “people are people” when Black people are intentionally being killed for being Black— people clearly aren’t people. People aren’t “people” when a white felon can more easily get a job than a Black person who has never committed a crime. You don’t get to pretend you live in an alternate reality in which the construct of race doesn’t exist because it does. It doesn’t help anyone for you to pretend that race doesn’t exist and “people are just people”. Psychologists link that thinking to people being racists because it shows that you’d rather ignore reality than realize that people are oppressed for their races and it shows you don’t know how to empathize.

aquaticspacepussy:

Why is it that removing race makes white people feel so comfortable.

You should be insulted that your racism is so deep you need to remove a person’s heritage to see them as a person. You need to change the context of events just to understand them. How do you have the nerve to call yourself enlightened when in order to see the picture you have to blur the whole image.

Get out of here lol!

Snake’s Last Meal Tried To Eat Its Way Out

people keep reblogging this photo without the article which imo is a major loss because: how else are you supposed to learn that the snake swallowed the centipede alive and the centipede in retaliation ate the entirety of the snake’s bones and organs from the inside out. this is inspiring
