Hello everyone! I've only recently started observing Wicca, and I already feel happier than I did when I was "practicing" Christianity. Let me give a little about myself, and then I have a few questions.
I am 14, and I live in northern Georgia (Unlikely to see Wicca here, huh?). I have started to read about Wicca, and I believe it is what I want to practice. My parents are active practicing baptists, and don't believe in the spiritual world apart from heaven and "The Holy Spirit".
I have just recently bought supplies so that I can make a primitive altar, but I sort
of have to hide it. My parents will not budge from the idea that the pentacle and pentagram are satanic, and that they are not used for the communication to the elements & spirits. I don't necessarily want to tell them I'm "Wiccan" right now, as I'm afraid the consequences will be many. Nonetheless, I want to practice and observe Wicca in its beauty, and observe it's many Sabats and Esbats. Let me tell you what I believe it is, and if I'm wrong, please correct me.
Wicca has a duo-theistic God/dess figure, the Goddess of the Moon & the Horned God of the Sun. Also, it's up to you to determine which pantheon you choose to follow(I have chosen Egyptian, since I've always had a calling to them.), and you may chose to observe The Wiccan Rede & Threefold law. Finally, you may choose to practice magic. If I have anything wrong with that, or I need to know more, please tell me. I want to know everything I can before I dive head-first in.
Thanks! Blessed be!
