Magick is what you make of it. If you wish to study a certain area then do so, there is no right or wrong, no black or white, merely the choice of the user of magick. There are of course the basics to start with, as with anything there needs to be a foundation. You can find many posts on here that state all the basics, as well as some that go in depth.
I for one follow the wizardly way, although recently I have been looking into some hermetic science. I have also read some books on wiccan, paganism, auras, chakras, and others. All in all, its what feels right to you and what works for you that matters. No one spell works the same for all.
