Fairy Witchcraft Traditions

Fairy Witchcraft Traditions Cover What classifies as a fairy tradition? Paths that label themselves as a fairy tradition incorporate fairy folklore and beliefs into their practices. This does not extend to Celtic countries only, as the belief in similar fairy-like spirits or Supernatural creatures permeates cultures worldwide. Traditions that work with the fey may incorporate pagan beliefs and practices involving fairies, or the ‘good folk’, that were practiced when the fairy-faith was still prevalent in Europe. Other methods of working with the fey may include contacting them, journeying to the otherworld, or incorporating them into the path’s mythology (use of deity, spirits, and belief within the tradition).

The traditions listed in this lesson are not to be confused with the Radical Faeries, or Kisma Stephanich’s Faery Wicca,which claims to have rediscovered the traditions of the Tuatha De Danann, an ancient fairy race . While it is agreed that some of her Information is based on Irish mythology, the majority of her books are based on pseudohistory, imagination, and plagiarism from R.J. Stewart’s books as well as other authors. Faerie Wicca or Faerie Faith, a Wiccan tradition founded in Texas, is also not associated with the paths covered in this introduction.
