    Witchcraft gatekeeping, huh.

    Though, WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE MOON is a good opener.

    I mean, I’ve been wondering that for years.

    I am extremely starved for bizarre, niche drama.

    I want to help stoke the fires of a civil witch war.

    I can only assume that people have to take sides in this, so are technopagans with the tiktok witches?

    Look all's I'm saying is that lady is talking about "baby witches" but those "baby witches" successfully hexed the fucking moon and entered into an alliance with faeries or whateverthefuck.

    Sounds like she's scared.

    At one point in that thread, the tweeter calls the Moon a planet. Is that... part of their beliefs too or just an incompetent way to clarify that they do mean the entire object?

    man you can't impose your Enlightenment astronomical classifications onto a belief system that dates at least as far back as (checks notes) ... the 1960s.

    Witches talk shit to each other and fight over shit all the time. I only have a small connection to it but to my understanding the covens in my town can be hostile to one another. It's like any other petty squabbling between organizations, but it's weird cause no one ever really outright says anyone's necessarily getting anything wrong.

    I can't decide if the suggestion that ignorant babbies in your religion can hex Gods and celestial bodies is dissing your own religion (because the figures of power seem incredibly weak?) or pumping it up (even a novice can topple Gods, it's pretty lit over here) to max levels.

    well their full claim is that Artemis is of course unharmed but is now mad at humanity because of the babies

    I mean, by her claim the worst he can do is a bloodline curse which is actually rad as hell and is just an excuse for somebody to become a movie protagonist who is ambivalent to both good and evil and probably has a cool gun.

    It says that they (could?) hurt them emotionally. So being hexed hurt their feelings real bad, I guess.

    Honestly, it's kinda rad that the witchkids decided to skip right past basic magic and tear the divine system and all of its injustices asunder

    I wish they'd have made some fixes to some of the more mundane and Earthly ones first but why not fuck up the Moon at this point, fuck the Moon

    Apparently they're gunning for the sun next and have thoroughly pissed off another sect of witches in this, the year of our lord two thousand and twenty.



    Needless to say I am 100% down with all of this and am deeply invested.

    Apollo isn’t the Greek sun god, Helios is.

    Geeze, witches, get it together.

    Oh man I'm reminded of the guy I knew at university who dated a "Witch" despite being about as religious or spiritual as your average half-brick. She'd be out chanting to Hecate or whatever while he played fifa

    At the pub once someone asked him if he was worried whether if he pissed off his gf, she and her coven would hex him or whatever, and he was like "no, magic's not real mate"

    They seemed like a sweet couple.

    i'll definitely take your word for it, i only have a little bit of experience with charting data, but in any case some human had to have looked at it at some point and decided that this incredibly shitty and useless graph was totally fine actually

    like maybe the person who made it didn't intend to obfuscate, they just had to get it done at 5 o'clock on Friday, but someone somewhere in the chain was not bummed at how poorly it presented the data

    If they wanted to heat map the % of cases they could have, ya know, heat mapped the % of cases.

    Those maps are comparing the total number of the cases, and thus fails at its job.

    In particular it’s asking us to give the benefit of the doubt to a Georgia administration that has not earned it in any respect.

    Apollo isn’t the Greek sun god, Helios is.

    Geeze, witches, get it together.

    They both are.

    Depends on when and where exactly you're talking.

    Edit: But honestly, if we're calling Artemis a moon goddess, then Apollo is definitely a sun god. Selene was the "original" moon goddess in Greek mythology, the sister of Helios, and they were both increasingly conflated with the Olympian twins.

    Gonna admit that I didn’t see the bit about Artemis being the moon because I just saw the Apollo bit and peaced out

    I totally understand the whole witch thing. You reject the dominant religion, but also the world is shit, so you desire power beyond your limited flesh vessel.

    It’s always crazy when groups complain about some tv show doing something which could be perceived as anti religious. Meanwhile Supernatural final season spoiler.

    If you’re getting mad at moon hexes you’re not worrying about various crushing things to worry about.
