1. WHAT IS YOUR NAME? WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Hi! My name is Katie Paige and I'm from Chicago, Illinois!
2. WHAT ARE YOU FAVORITE RITUAL TOOLS?
I love using Sage and other herbs, Palo Santo, candles and of course, a whole lot of crystals!!
3. WHEN DID YOU DO YOUR FIRST SPELL? BE HONEST!!
I feel like I probably tried to do one when I was itty bitty (maybe 6 or 7?!) after watching Halloweentown and Sabrina the Teenage Witch a bunch of times, but faster forward almost 20 years later; I want to say I did my first legit spell only like 4 months ago!
4. WHAT IS YOUR SIGN?
I'm a Leo Sun sign and have a Scorpio Moon and Scorpio Ascending sign.
5. DO YOU FOLLOW A CERTAIN PRACTICE OR KIND OF DIY YOUR OWN WITCHERY?
Definitely more DIY. I love experimenting with different types of Divination and ritual tools and seeing what works best for me. I also really love New Moon and Full Moon rituals.
6. WHAT IS THE BIGGEST “WITCH” STEREOTYPE?
Probably that we're just Harry Potter nerds that think we can make things float in mid-air. I think a lot of people have no idea that it really all comes down to your own intuition and working with energy.
7. CURRENT FAVORITE CRYSTAL TO WORK WITH?
Oh geez so difficult!! I'd say my favorite crystal of all time is Amethyst, but my current favorite that I've been working with lately is Citrine! I've been doing a lot of manifesting in the business realm!
8. WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU GOT YOUR PALM READ
Actually something I've never done!
9. DO YOU HAVE ANY GHOST STORIES TO SHARE WITH US?
Not a specific ghost, but since I was little I would hate going to the Haunted Mansion in Disney World. Even though most of the ride is supposed to be more lighthearted than scary, I just never liked it for some reason. I hadn't been to Disney for over 10 years until I went back for my Honeymoon in October (woo!). I thought now being an adult, the Haunted Mansion (a ride for children) wouldn't be a big deal. Apparently, I was wrong. I don't know what it is, but the minute I walked through the gates to the waiting line for the ride, I get this really uncomfortable feeling, which increases as the ride goes. I just sit in the little Doom Buggy awkwardly smiling at all of the little scenes throughout the ride; trying to convince myself that, "this is fun! Look at all of the funny little fake ghosts!." My husband loved the ride, so we ended up riding it three times on our trip and each time I couldn't wait for it to be over. I now have a reoccurring nightmare of riding the Haunted Mansion and it being far, far more scary than it actually is (Fun stuff!). Safe to say, I will be taking a pass on the ride on my next trip to Disney!
10. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE OUIJA BOARD?
Nope, nope, nope.
11. FAVORITE WITCHY MOVIE, GO!
So many! But my all time favorite is hands down Hocus Pocus. "DOES THOU COMPREHEND?!"
12. DO YOU HAVE A CAT?
I wish!! I've wanted a cat forever, but I'm too scared they'll scratch up my walls and stuff. I do however have two adorable pups named Ivy and Toki.
13. MUSIC IS A HUGE INSPIRATION FOR ME- WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY LISTENING TO?
Same here! I was actually the singer of a rock band for some time and toured nearly the entire US! Currently, I'm listening to one of my all-time faves, Fleetwood Mac.
