My family is from Appalachia which has a very rich and diverse heritage in these things (witchery). You could say witchcraft runs in the family in various forms. However there is a stigma to the term because of Christian influence in those parts and if you dare call many of my kin a Witch they'd have a shotgun pointed at ya. I myself embrace the term but you could call me a mountain or cunning man among other things.
My grandfather taught me the planting of signs by the moon (the first thing I learned) and of dowsing. He also taught me of metals. My grandmother taught me herbs and she also had an interest in stones. Both had an interest in Astrology but my grandma didn't get deep into it. Her mother had an interest in astrology, herbs and stones. My grandmas father was a Mason and my grandfather had many Masonic contacts though as far I knew while he was respected he did his own thing. He was well read and I was fortuneate enough to have an alternative education alongside my public schooling in my younger years.
I got into the more advanced astrological practices and started practicing ceremonial magick. I seemed to have a knack for the ceremonial and knowing many of my social cast never had the opportunities I had, I dove in.
I eventually transitioned to a more Wiccan praxis, working within a tradition that while not purely Gardnerian, does have Gardnerian roots among others. I still do grimoire style works from time to time. I've worked with a number of them so you'll just have to ask me. Though I am fond of Dee's tabular watchtowers.
Also I feel that it's important to study ones roots and so I've looked into Thelema, the O.T.O, A.A, Golden Dawn and all things influencing Wicca. I do consider Thelema a sister tradition.
Then, going back to my native Appalachian background, there's bits of European lore alongside my native roots as well. I do speak Cherokee, and know some traditional medicine but I've got a long way to go. you got to pick it up when it presents itself. Really learn from the elders because there's so much and you may only get one chance before it is gone.
In my tome, my "Book of Shadows" or Grimoire you will see bits of traditional Wicca, things from various ceremonial grimoires, things from various magickal orders and lodges, European and Appalachian folk practices and native medicine.
I have an interest in Chochrane craft which I love for it's story telling and approach. I'm thankful because those I work with now have a good blend of this and what Gardnerian craft has to offer. I also have an interest with Sabbatic craft at large, as well as Luciferian Witchcraft inline with Aradia.
Though as I see the Watchers and magick it self I don't "take sides" politically except concerning others right to express their will, and especially regarding cultural genocide which is so close to home. So when Diana Lucifera says to kill the oppressors- hey, I can relate.
