Too young for spells?

Post # 1
Why is it that people under 18 cant not cast or be casted on with a spell? A spell-caster told me i am too young for spells and should wait a year before he can begin the ritual. I was fine with it but i am curious to know why is that. Is it dangerous for minors to do so or will it give no effect?

In my experience, the older someone is, the longer they have studied and learned what they have to do and not do when dealing with 'spells' and 'magic'. They will have had time to learn how to protect themselves and have more wisdom than younger people.

He probably is hesitant about underage clients for the same reason I would be.. They may not have an inkling of what they're wishing for.

I have a teenage daughter, she is 13. She is in the process of learning.

I don't allow her to cast any spells alone. When we do cast together it is very simple and easy "wishing" moon spells. Before we get to the full moon, I have her write out her wish and tell me why she wants it.
We do this because she is still very young, even though she has a high IQ, I want to make sure she fully understands what she is asking for and if it affects anyone else.

Teenagers are at an age where instant gratification tends to win out over logic and forgetfulness is a common theme. These are very dangerous elements to bring to magick.

When you factor in puberty and maturity level, it can cause chaotic energy and magick. Imagine what gets sent out if you are angry and can't control it, but your friend asks you to do a healing spell for her. You're not meaning to do harm and you're not angry at your friend, but your emotional and even though you are trying to do a good thing, it comes out all wrong and could end up harming someone and yourself.

A mature adult (I say mature because being and adult doesn't automatically qualify) would know that they are too upset and that the spell would have to wait until their energy is better.

Also, most adults won't be swayed by peer pressure.

The reason why so much is drilled into young people about magick
Is because it's a huge responsibility.

I hope this helped you understand a little.

There is no real reason why an under-age person cannot cast spells. The problem arises when an adult casts a spell for a person under age, without the parent's permission. In that case, he/she would be teaching a religion; and that is illegal.

I am underage I suppose but I have always practiced spells and magick. I do so knowing that I could fail and if I do I have my father to help me. I haven't failed yet because I was trained since I was young to use protective measures. I will admit though that my magick is random and dependent upon my inner most desire for the magick worked.

Whoever told you that you have to be 18 is not being honest with you. There are many people that started when they were very young. I am one of those people.

There's many people on this website under the age of 18 studying and practicing magic. Before you go to any spell caster to have them work on your behalf check into their background to see if they're legitimate first! There's no rules about people under being 18 can't cast spells just use common sense.

As for legal grounds covens cannot legally accept a minor into their covens and or teach individually without parental consent. It would be illegal to do so.

Age is not important, but your frend might have lied to you because your friend thinks that your not ready for that, or doesn't want you casting spells fore some reason

Well actually children can cast spells and they can be affected by spells and spell craft.

The darker side of the arts often do focus on children... Those Satanic Child Abusing Cults people are often talking about and saying they ain't real.... Well they are very real and they use all manner of manipulation on children to raise children to be power spell casters who begin casting well before puberty in many cases.

Understand by the time I was 8 year old I was part of some pretty serious ritual in a role as caster. So I know from personal experience that yes children can be taught to cast. I also know from person experience that not only can children be used in ritual, but they can be the object of intent of a ritual (magic).

Age of Consent... This is a concept where we try to establish when exactly a mind is mature enough, experienced enough and developed enough to make an informed choice.

Informed... That takes data gathering, and the world of children is nothing like the real world. The rules and laws that children have to uphold are not as strict and full of responsibility of the adult world.

Most children are protected to some great degree from the ravages of this world. Most parents do their best to shield their children, thus the child doesn't have a full, complete set of experiences to understand what risk and consequences are.

You are not immune from magic.

He most likely is trying to make certain you are making an informed choice here.
