Trip to the Library...
By:
Post # 1
I'm going to be stopping by the library this week, and I was wondering what kind of books, preferably reference types and such, should I be looking for? I ask because my library only has *one* book about "Wicca", and it is never there. So I was wondering what other types of materials I should be looking for that they might have?

Mythology and divination are great topics to brush up on. Also symbolism and herbalism. Symbols are a historical thing, so most libraries have books on the subject. Understanding the history of a symbol can aid you in using it in your craft. And herbalism/natural medicine is a great way extend your magick work in herbs.

Check if they have anything under astrology as well. Learning about the planets and constellations through astrology can give you a far better understanding of correspondence times and ingredients if you follow the almanacs (I personally do not). Not to mention, understanding the planet's personalities can help you to better understand what it means when a book says that, for instance, that white sage is under the planet jupiter.

Philosophy! Did you know that the elements we use -- Air, Fire, Water, and Wind -- originated from Aristotle?

Psychology! Jung was extremely influenced by the occult. There are many psychologists that are.

There are plenty of things to look up on apart from Wicca! :)

I suggest researching interesting topics such as crystals and minerals, as they are used greatly in magick, and herbalism, which is also used greatly! Others include (as mentioned above) mythology and divination. Also, learn your meditation and chakras! They really come in handy and are two of the basics.

But you dont have to do things just by books! Check the internet too, look at websites that seem reliable and experienced. I learn mostly by the internet, and it is really handy, especially when you need a answer quick. :)

Information about human psychology has helped me in my spiritual path a great deal. I strongly recommend "Games People Play" by Eric Berne, - a study of the psychology of human relationships XD

I've flipped through that book. The author seemed a little too commercial, so I decided against it. But if it is good, I'll have to give it another shot.
