What are the typical ingredients, utensils and appliances that you would expect a traditional Witch to have in her possession? What difference would you expect to see in a modern Witches possession?

Often, the answer to this question relies on thier particular path, traditions, situation and personal beliefs.

Witches do not necessarily need to HAVE any particular items. However, the "accepted" list may include the following:

Wand
Athame
Cauldron
Chalice
Boline
Candles & holders
Incense and holders
Herbs
Essential oils
Pentacle
Representations of Gods and Goddesses

to name but a few. However, it has been said that the only tools a witch needs are thier mind and fingers.

I'm not a Witch (just to clarify!) but in my possession, I have:

An Athame (because it's a pretty black knife!)
Lots of Crystals (decent energy output)
Runes
Oracle Cards
Pendulum


..


Can't think of what else, apart form a few books!

Very interesting. Do you think this list has changed much over the course of history?

Well i should think it has changed dramatically along with the evolution of the craft.

Many consider witchcraft (including me) to have its roots in Shammanic rituals, indeed much appears to be borrowed from them and they are definately pagan. In those times i believe drums bones and mind altering drugs were the tools of choice.

Moving down history the tools slowly changed into what would be considerd traditional tools, like the Besom, Athame and cauldron. These would largely have died out with the coming of Christian persicution and the witch hunts, instead witches probably reverted to good old nature, twigs as wands, herbs and stones.

And still it is evolving, as far as im aware a hugely popular tool of magick, semi precious crystals wernt that widely available in England a few hundred years ago (i could be wrong though rabbit )

Also already people (especially younger students though not all, as i include myself here) are changing from a BoS to CD rom of shadows. In my mind a shame, but then in this technological age witchcraft must adapt. I believe it is this adaptability in all parts of witchcraft that has ensured its continue survival, through all manner of trials.

Wow bit of a long post Embarassed sorry. I'll let everybody else have thier say now, I'm probably wrong its just my views, and they are often a little slanted (i think its the way i tilt my head).

Zephron, I think it would really great if you came to the meeting at The Willow Tree on Saturday, we run a group for Teenagers and slightly above (Sarah (Lunarcraft) being in the "slightly above" category!) and I think it would be a nice climate for someone who has opinions like yours, which are very similar to peoples in the groups opinions!

And before any of the girls say it, yes, I do just want another dude to be at the meetings!! {{I'm the only guy in the meetings, it's hard work!}}

Not declaring myself a "witch", but these are the tools and staples of my trade. My BOS has been passed down through coven to me.

I have the basics : cards, Athame, rune-stones, scrying mirror, candles, crystals, some metal-cast talismans.

I keep a wide variety of live(meaning growing) and dried herbs. Pretty much everything my green thumb will produce. I have a stock of peyote and other south-western ritualistic plants, primarily ones that can be dried. I make alot of jar talismans and can grow/find around me most things that might be needed to be put in these. Some of the more peculiar being chickens feet/black salt/graveyard dirt/animal bones/carved totems. My eclectic taste is due to those that have taught me.
