Hi everyone. I am pretty new to this site and to the religion of Wicca in general, and I must admit I am a bit of a skeptic. However, I want to try to use this site to try to understand Wicca and try to wrap my head around it. Hmm... A few things about myself. I love video games, I have short blue hair, and I love roleplaying. I hope that we all get along and it is really nice to meet you all.

Hi there, I?ve been practicing Wicca for a good many years now and one of the first questions that comes up is the one about where to start. My suggestion is always to start by doing some reading and studying to make certain that you understand what Wicca is really all about, and so that you can then decide whether this is truly the path that you want to follow. So with that in mind I thought I would offer some books and websites that are full of sound I information which can help you get started on your path.
To start with, here are some books that I would suggest.
''A Witch Alone'' by Marian Green
''The Elements of Ritual'' by Deborah Lipp
''Witchcrafting'' by Phyllis Curott
''21st Century Wicca'' by Jennifer Hunter
''Before You Cast a Spell'' by Carl McColman
''When, Why...If'' by Robin Wood
''Practical Pagan'' by Dana Eilers
''Wicca; A Year and a Day'' by Timothy Roderick

Here's some websites that you may find useful in helping you with questions.
i to am new and love games and rp as will i also know a little about magic i see magicens on tv and laugh mortals see as mortals do but in truth i see how it is done it is hard to trike mi unless it is goddess or god magic the real wiccan spells i have been given a gift from the gods i can see things that mortals cant cuz i have been shadowed kissed not the mortla book kind i have died and seen the other side were gods/goddess and kings/Queens of the nature spirts the energes that control the world and all its dimentions live and i was given the wiccan sight the surpent animal guide and the abilty to see the truth
brysing i see your a mod but i can tell your very smart but it takes a lot to prove magic is real to you even though you been at it for 7 years but you did fall off a few times cause you could not see how it all worked but you have faith in magic but you have not found what your good at yet you have the knowledge and ability but you leak the belief in what you have seen and done in your life your a healer friend but other people have gifts to friend i have no beef with you but have fath in others
