About Patch and this Blog
-I'm known on the internet as Patch.
I have been a practising Hellenic polytheist for 4 years.
- After following a re-con methodology for a number of years, I became unable to ignore the call to witchcraft and so here I am today exploring how this fits into my practice.
This blog primarily deals with devotional worship, Hellenic polytheism, pagan living and a whole lot of navel gazing.

I generally do not celebrate the neopagan wheel of the year outside of large, non-specific community gatherings. However Imbolc is an exception. I adore this time of year because spring is just around the corner (bringing with it warmth, new growth and … Continue reading
As I think I have mentioned before, I meet on the tuesday closest to the dark moon with other female pagans and witches to practice divination. This month I bought my collection casting system, and once again it performed wonderfully … Continue reading
I kick started the lunar month (well, technically ended the old one) with Hekate’s Deipnon. I cleansed my new flat for the first time, and offered her myrrh incense and the cherry mead which I only give to her and the ancestors. The … Continue reading
