A question that came up recently and one that I have pondered often... What do you expect from a High Priest/ess?
I feel very honoured to have earnt the title High Priestess after eight years of training, working through the three Wiccan degrees including training 'in the field' as well as academic, admittedly it took me eight years because I had a baby in the middle of my training but still...
During my own training I studied under two High Priestesses and two High Pries
On occasion I am met with laughter when someone finds out I am a witch (shock horror didn't you know?) ;-) and that is usually followed by the jokes about green skin, warts and poisoned apples ... Disney/Hollywood you have an awful lot to answer for! I am also occasionally met with comments suggesting that I spend my entire time sitting over a bubbling cauldron sending out curses and hexes that people have paid me to do...seriously if I had time to do that I wouldn't waste it
