If your into spellcraft, start with the basics. More importantly, study the religion itself. Connect with nature, let it guide you.

Read. check out some books, look up some things online, go to your book store, and study as much as you can. the paths, the basics, the elements, the gods/goddesses, learning about the basics is the perfect place to start~

My advice is to always remember that Wicca is a religion (connection with deity), study alot, and be dedicated, be persistent, and if you have any questions ask. :)

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. -Buddha

I'm giving her advice. If you had studied philosophy or buddhism at all, you would know that the quote is explaining that people should think for themselves and not adopt any information as their own knowledge unless it makes sense to them. Religion and faith is a very personal thing, no one should have to tell you what you should believe. You should choose what belief best fits your own logic. For every individual who believes something, there are many many more who thought/think the same.

Most people grasp at wicca because they think that its the only form of witch, or the only way of pagainism. When witchcraft has no religious affiliation and wicca is a modern religion of paganism.

How can she want to be wiccan without knowing all of its philosophies? Learning about wicca, agreeing, and adopting its beliefs is one thing, but learning to become one?...it just rubs me the wrong way.

Hi there, I?ve been practicing Wicca for a good many years now and one of the first questions that comes up is the one about where to start. My suggestion is always to start by doing some reading and studying to make certain that you understand what Wicca is really all about, and so that you can then decide whether this is truly the path that you want to follow. So with that in mind I thought I would offer some books and websites that are full of sound I information which can help you get started on your path.

To start with, here are some books that I would suggest.

"A Witch Alone" by Marian Green
"The Elements of Ritual" by Deborah Lipp
"Witchcrafting" by Phyllis Curott
"21st Century Wicca" by Jennifer Hunter
"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman
"When, Why...If" by Robin Wood
"Practical Pagan" by Dana Eilers
"Wicca; A Year and a Day" by Timothy Roderick

You can also find the recommended reading list that my coven uses at: http://www.tangledmoon.org/reading_list.htm

Here's some websites that you may find useful in helping you with questions.
