Merry meet! I can't figure out how to tell one if my best friends I'm Wiccan. I have finally decided on this after years if wondering, she is not the kind of person who would blab about it... She and her mother are also wiccan so I should feel free to tell them right? I just completely blank when I try to tell her, I get so nervous! When my parents found out I felt so bad and nervous I was physically sick! Anyone got any advice? Please help! Thanks and BB

You could try using what I refer to as "the first person sneak attack". As you know she's Wiccan you've evidently had a conversation about it before so bring it up generically in conversation then replace one of the second person narratives with a first (ie "I" instead of "You"). This takes a little bit of the pressure off and avoids the awkwardness of a coming out conversation as it appears to be a more casual statement.
Another tactic is simply a thoughtful gift. I'm not Wiccan myself but if there's a symbol (less obvious than a pentagram) you can get her one as a "I saw this and thought of you" kind of thing. From there you do still need to actually say that you're Wiccan but it at least broaches the subject for you.
