I suspect that due to the fascination with the occult in the 19th. C, the houses wild look remarkably normal for the Victorian period...  The use of paranormal Artefacts would be the difference.  Perhaps among unholy talismans and display cases full of strange paraphernalia, you would find Aetheric devices such as Will Rockwell's "soul harvester" you have seen before at Brassgoggles.

Path 1: Magitech

Path 2: Magic From Technology|Sufficently Advanced Technology

And here a good idea for DIESELPUNK witches and sorcerer (just give a better role to the white magic movement ):

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

 are you suggesting that Aleister Crowley was Steampunk- you may be onto something here

What an intriguing idea. I'm imagining a esoteric paraphernalia augmented by brass and copper mechanisms. Oddly glowing liquids circulated through glass tubing by steam driven pumps; bubbling cauldrons mixed by the complex motions of intricate clockwork; disquietingly life-like automatons made more than mere machines by a scroll inscribed with arcane symbols placed where its heart should be; the traditional witch's transport, a broomstick, embellished with instrumentation on multi-jointed linkages for navigation, not just within the earthly plane, and the channelling of ethereal energies; rune-covered goggles with multiple, liquid filled lenses for peering into the Dark Dimensions and seeing what cannot be seen...

Yours,
Miranda.

P.S.




Looks a bit like my make-up box...  Roll Eyes

 Yes Dear Miss Miranda,  I saw n my minds eye,  neon green bubbling potions,  gold  winkle dust , brass and coppers cauldron workings, jars of preserves toads, frogs and other assorted curiosities . Swirling ectoplasm drifting to a pitched Gothic roof

The pagans and/or witches that I know who are also interested in Steampunk don't really mix the two.

In fiction maybe.

Well since about 50% of the Witches I know are also interested in Steampunk - I guess Steampunk Witches would be like ...... me and my friends ,,,,,,*

*The other 50% are SCA.

We're talking witches, not wiccans.

I'd imagine they might have mechanical animals as familiars.

Dear Miss Miranda

the traditional witch's transport, a broomstick, embellished with instrumentation on multi-jointed linkages for navigation, not just within the earthly plane, and the channelling of ethereal energies

How wonderfully perfect. My hazel and willow shall be ready for harvest next full moon. Just in time for oestara and the perfect accessory to my live willow bower. The rune goggles to which you refer are the symbols of the constellations through which the moon travels advising me of the nature of my activities for the day.

Today the moon is in pisces (or fishes if you prefer), we are both waxing and ascending. Today I shall sow my cabbage, sprouts and cauliflower.

Perhaps a good idea is for those of you in the know to explain to rest of us - who are basically ignorant on the subject, the details and differences between each type....

I like the idea of mechanical familiars...

We're not allowed to talk about religion on here. For now let us just say there are some modern religions, that like giving the pretense of following ancient traditjons.

 While I enjoy a thread taking a tangent and a life of it's own...

 I had not intended a profound religious   or quasi philosophical debate on any level

 I was referring to the traditional  witch of the fairy tale  or superstition from the medieval to Disney epochs - on a very low brow level

 I should have  foreseen  it would only end in  devilment and persecution.
