The use of magic is an integral part of Wicca. The involved process of casting spells includes gathering materials and adhering to fundamentals of the religion. Above all else, the Wiccan Rede thought of "an it harm none, do as thou wilt" (translation: do whatever you would like as long as it doesn't hurt anyone) must be heeded. Manipulating others or inflicting harm will be repaid three times according to the Law of Threefold Return.

Colors play a major part in magic and spell casting whether they appear in altar cloths, clothing, candles, stones or tinted water. Each color has a different representation or power it can bring to a spell. Red is sexuality, courage and energy. Pink is romance, love, and affection. Yellow is confidence, creativity, and luck. Green represents wealth, growth and fertility. Blue is peace and protection. Other colors and meanings can be found online.

Herbs and oils are used in magic but caution must be expressed in handling them. Just because something comes from nature doesn't mean it's harmless. Wolfbane and Belladonna are just two examples of poisonous herbs. Many oils and herbs are also irritants or allergens. Protective gloves and caution need to be used to prevent any unfortunate accidents. You want to make magic happen, not an emergency.

Stones and crystals are the most portable ritual item in magic. A spell can be placed on one or a collection of stones and placed in a bag to be carried with you. The scent of herbs and oils might draw attention but stones (hopefully) are odor free. Pentagrams are also wearable but if you aren't able to due to work or school rules, a traditional star like children draw still has five points. It is an acceptable alternative.

Before beginning a spell casting ritual, it is important to realize what the true nature of the spell is. A love spell, for example, does not make that person you're yearning for suddenly fall head over heels in love with you. That would be a violation of the Wiccan Rede since it is a manipulation. A love spell makes the caster more open to the idea of love and more capable of expressing it. Through changing yourself you can change what is brought unto you by the world.

It is going to be difficult to cast a magic spell without an actual written spell. If you are already a member of a coven that has a Book of Shadows, then you probably wouldn't need to be reading this. Individuals can find some basic spells online or in publications at New Age bookstores. Chat up those who have been practicing Wicca for some time for some advice and they may share a few of their spells if you seem genuine.

The difficulty of the spell is going to depend largely on what kind of magic needs to be done. For minor magic (like asking for luck) a few ingredients and a short often rhyming phrase will suffice. Larger spells may require the help of a coven who can assist you make a stronger calling on the four elements.

The difficult of the spell does not depend on what type of magic you're using.
All categories of magic range in extremely difficult and complex to horribly easy and simple.

Example: [Necromantic Spells vs. Bringing Rain Spells]
Many would think and agree that necromancy is a rather more advanced type of magic; I myself agree, but not because the spells are all difficult.
For instance you have simple chant that go with simple meditation forms just to speak or even see the dead.
Bringing Rain Spells are usually very basic, but not always; although I would consider it slightly better for beginners than starting off with Necromancy.
There are tribes in Africa that perform rituals that last for days, weeks, months... that include sacrifices, strict ceremonial behavior and dress just to bring rain for a day.

You can not base the difficulty of a practice on the spells therefore you can not base the difficulty of spells on a practice.

ok, 1.) "The use of magic is an integral part of Wicca"
I can agree only to a certain extent with this because there are many wiccans what go their entire life without casting a spell.

2.) The Wiccan Rede is a little more than "do whatever you would like as long as it doesn't hurt anyone" You must consider the consequences of your Actions and Inactions. Also,if in a position where you need to defend yourself, you are allowed to do so. The Wiccan Rede states, An it harm None, Do What Thou Will, Unless in Self Defense.

3.) What an individual believes about the three fold law is based on their own personal beliefs and what they have been taught the law encompasses. Some Wiccans believe that whatever you do you will learn 3 fold until you actually grasp the concept of what you have done wrong, others believe it just comes back 3 fold once.

4.) You go into color, herbs and stones, although these are good things to know, not every wiccan uses them.

5.)Not all Spells require a ritual. It's actually the True intentions of the spell caster that should be questioned first, not the nature of the spell, that comes second or third down the list.

6.)"It is going to be difficult to cast a magic spell without an actual written spell." This only applies to beginners. Those who are more advanced KNOW that words are only a Key to trigger the consciousness shift, and those who are advanced can do this at the bat of an eye, and usually don't need written word aside from maybe a basic outline at best.

7.)People who are part of covens don't always have a good coven to learn from (though it's hopeful wishing to find a good coven there are many impostor covens out there). A Student is allowed to look and learn from many other resources to get a wider understanding of some of the basics. What works for one person doesn't always work for another.

8.)A.) Spells are great if they rhyme, but they don't need to. B.) the True difficulty of a spell depends not on the magic that needs to be done, but how much effort and energy the person is willing to put forth. C.) " Larger spells may require the help of a coven who can assist you make a stronger calling on the four elements." This doesn't apply to Solitary Witches because they don't work in covens. No spell is too "Large" for an individual to do on their own. Again this goes back to how much effort and will you are willing to put forth to accomplish a goal.

9.) Magic is Energy influencing Energy to Create a positive change in your life to open up new opportunities for one to rise to the occasion needed (or in basic terms to attract specific opportunities that are needed to help others).

Auntie Vixen beated me to it :) See Wicca is a religion , or more accurately social group of people following Old Rellgion , but basiclally almost the same. Sociology teaches as that relligion is a system that does not use spells and this is one of the main differences between a religious and magickal tradition.
In Wicca this is different as many Wiccans are Witches too , and Wicca is not against casting spells and being witch , o conteur very supportive of such practice.

Your aims are true :) but you shoul pay just a lil bit attention to details , semnatics and traditionalism. Blessings :)
