Atwater resident Madison Davis is a 3rd generation witch who has practiced witchcraft since she was 13-years-old.
“There’s a big misconception of witchcraft. When you get into black magic, that means the individual is out to cause harm. I’m not evil. I’m not dark,” says Madison. I work more with energy elements of the earth. I’m not out to hurt anyone.
Madison then explains the different types of witches.
“There are three types of witches: Black (Black magic), White (Good witch), and Grey (Center). I would categorize myself as a grey witch. I am a grey witch because I practice protecting myself; if I feel I’m at harm, I will cast a protection spell. However, I put nothing bad on anyone else. I don’t particularly say I’m a Wiccan, because we don’t abide by the same outlines and guides,” said Madison.
Madison has a home based business called LadyMoonRaye, which sells organic herbs, oils, stones, and candles. She also offers tarot card readings.
“There’s really nothing in Merced County for alternative spirituality. I’m also an Ordained Clergy (High Priestess). I do wedding services for people who aren’t religious,” said Madison.
Madison will be at the Atwater Spirits Festival on Saturday, October 19, 2019.
