scotlandhero is new apparently, so i'm guessing they don't know the difference, but probably casting spells and making potions. as hero continues on they'll figure out it's more than that.
magic can be done by anyone, as long as you can charge and focus. Witchcraft on the other hand is far more difficult yet far more rewarding. if you've converted to a pagan path, and you're wanting to learn practice, and you think magic is what's needed, you'll learn it's not just magic. Witchcraft is far more rewarding a path than simply casting spells. granted, there's nothing wrong with just wanting to cast spells. if you wish to do more, then meditation, chakra work, learning about herbs, symbols, runes, gemstones, working with nature, celebrating the seasons, and many other things are needed. witches are always studying and learning, one is never done, and one never masters this path, they just get better. there's articles, forums, and books to help you on your path scotlandhero, good luck, blessed be ^_^
