The basics of magick are hallowing (circle casting), grounding energy, centering yourself, energy manipulation, correspondences, meditation, and much more. If you click the articles tab on this site you will find a great majority of the basics laid out in article format. I also suggest True Magick by Amber K. It is a great book to start with. Remember if you are really interested in magick, then you will put forth the effort to study it. Read articles, read books, and ask questions. Make sure you also keep an open mind. Good luck and be blessed.
