No one can start with spells first without any knowledge of what you are doing how do you expect it to work.
Will you take apart your beloved phone and yank out pieces out of it without knowing what your doing.NO!
You have to start somewhere,and that place is the basics.grounding,centering,meditation,what is magic?How does it work?The correspondences, etc.
You crawl before you walk,you walk before you run and you run before you can finally jump.
So read a lot,do some research on the things your interested in like candle magic,charms or potions etc.Keep reading,keep learning.
When you have the basics down try casting a few spells and try different methods to see what works for you.
