Romania’s Busy Witch Community Using The Power of the Internet To Migrate Their Ancient Practices Onto The Web

A family of Romanian witches are using the Internet to slowly transition their ancient practices onto the Web.

“A truly powerful witch can solve problems from a distance,” 20-year-old witch Cassandra Buzea tells Reuters.

“Repeat after me! To be together with who I want,” the family of Romanian witches chant via a video call to a client in India paying for a love spell.

The session, in a decorated shed in a back yard 15 km (9 miles) north of Bucharest, is one of many consultations the family holds online, alternating them with rituals livestreamed on Facebook to build up their digital following.

Witchcraft has long been seen as a folk custom in the eastern European country, and many of its estimated 4,000 witches are luring customers from Europe, Asia and the United States.

Buzea said it was the younger generation that had persuaded the old about the powers of the ‘selfie’, and her mother was quickly on board.

“Nothing’s changed, the craft is the same, but now it’s much easier for us to be in contact with clients from other countries,” said Mihaela Minca, who taught her daughter Buzea the family craft.
