Witchcraft is rebellion

“She does it to be rebellious” 

In my younger years, I believed those words to be of someone who merely wanted to play pretend. But now, I smile when I hear those words. Of course she is rebellious, witchcraft is the very act of rebellion.

Witchcraft is the recourse of the dispossessed, the powerless, the hungry and the abused. It gives heart and tongue to stones and trees. It wears the rough skin of beasts. It turns on a civilization that knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

-Apocalyptic Witchcraft by Peter Grey

People rarely become witches for benign or gentle reasons. Its sought for power, for justice, for control. To look at something and wishing to no longer bare its pain, it is, in its very definition, an act of uprising; of heresy. It is a force, not an order. It is a rallying cry, not chaotic anarchy.

It is forged by those with little to lose. Witchcraft is the beauty which is terror.– Apocalyptic Witchcraft by Peter Grey.

The next time you are told you are simply being “rebellious” smile in pride. You are not helpless….
