I am wanting to join one of the online covens, but I have a few questions. Do the covens accept beginners? And I noticed on a few of them you have to be active in forums and all, which is awesome because I am wanting to get everything I can out of this experience and give back what I can, but will they be considerate of my crazy work schedule? If anyone could help me that would be great. Thank you and Blessed Be.
Covens will accept beginners. If there are nothing but advanced people in a coven there is less learning and less activity. When it reads that you have to be active in the forum, Most mean that you just have to post 2-3 times a week. If your schedule will not allow this, try another coven.
Most are very considerate and understand that you would have a life offline. The same thing goes for accepting beginners. Take your time going through the list of groups and getting to know what they are about before applying. Whatever one seems right for you is worth trying. Love, light and blessings :)
The 2-3 posts a week aren't as difficult or time consuming as they seem. You could simply get information online or from a book and transfer it to the coven, giving credit where credit is due. Some covens don't even mind if the forum post itself is a question, not an informative post. Don't be short-sighted by the rules that seem constricting, covens are there to help people learn and grow!
Many of them will be fair and good to you, and it is a great experience for obtaining knowledge as well as getting to know others. I suggest simply trying your luck at whichever one instinctively attracts you.
