You should start magick by the basics(links on my profile). But I should add,different paths have different basics. the basics daily.Also,research is a best way to start. Working in some paths and features on magick can give you a can research in this site:through,forums,articles,chatter and more!just keep on researching.You can download onli some books by some notable sites. Or you can simply borrow a pagan/Wicca/witchcraft book from your local libra good look at the general info threads in this site can be helpful. If you can't afford to buy a book you can downloa from Google.
