Would you be interested in Gardnerian Wicca, Dianic Wicca, Feri Wicca, Alexandrian Wicca, or another branch?

Feri is not a Wiccan tradition but a form of spiritual witchcraft founded by Victor and Cora Anderson. There are no books that will make you a member of the Feri Tradition. For that you would need to find someone who has been initiated into Feri, train with them, and become initiated by them. And as you are not yet legally an adult, it is unlikely that any reputable Feri initiate would take you as a student until you are at least 18 years old. While it won't teach you how to become Feri, there are two books by T. Thorn Coyle that will give you an indication of what Feri might be like so you can see whether it is the right path for you. The books are " Evolutionary Witchcraft " and " Kissing the Limitless ".

Dianic Wicca has two separate paths within it, only one of which should be considered Wicca while the other is a form of feminist Witchcraft.

Those Dianics that trace their lineage back to Z Budhapest worship only the Goddess and completely ignore the God aspect in their workings. Their path is designed for women only and they do not permit any males to train or to worship in their practices. The reason that I say that this particular form of Dianic practice is not Wicca is that Wicca includes the worship of both God and Goddess in balance.

The other form of Dianic practice is the McFarland line that started in Texas. While they place the greatest emphasis on the worship of the Goddess, they also honor the God as her consort. Both men and women are permitted in McFarland covens. But again, it's unlikely they would accept you before you turn 18.

All forms of British Traditional Wicca such as Gardnerian, Alexandrian, Central Valley Wicca, some Blue Star Wiccans, etc. You have to be at least 18 years old, and in some covens 21 years old, to study for initiation in a BTW coven. The only way to become a British Traditional Wiccan is through training and initiation into a proper BTW coven. But if you'd like to read a bit about what the founder of Gardnerian Wicca had to say, then I'd suggest "Witchcraft Today" and "The Meaning of Witchcraft" by Gerald Gardner.

Of course one can study and work as a Wiccan without undergoing coven training or ascribing to a specific Tradition. This is known as being a "solitary, eclectic Wiccan". In that case it would require only that you learn about Wiccan beliefs and practices and then begin to follow those on a regular basis. You might want to start with the post in this Forum of "What Wicca Is and Isn't" http://www.spellsofmagic.com/read_post.html?post=637268 Then there is a lot of information about Wiccan beliefs, ethics, and practices with some suggested reading in the thread at Main Wicca Posts: http://www.spellsofmagic.com/read_post.html?post=580909

I've been practicing Wicca for a some 30 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
''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
"Wicca" by Thea Sabin

You can also find the recommended reading list that my coven uses at: http://www.tangledmoon.org/reading_list.htm

Here's some websites that you may find useful in helping you with questions.

http://wicca.cnbeyer.com/

http://www.witchvox.com

http://www.tangledmoon.org/wiccan-exercise.htm

http://www.tangledmoon.org (this is my own coven site.)

Hope this helps you get a good start on your studies. And feel free to ask me, or the others here on the board if you have any specific questions we can help you with.

"Is there any paths Aeon didn't post" I laughed hard there, not at you specifically, but the notion someone listed every single branch of Wicca. Wicca has been very flexible, even when Gardner founded it, he let Doreen Valiente change his Book of Shadows to give it more flare. If it follows the few basic laws [or just one] then people feel they can be called Wiccan. If it worships a male and female deity, the threefold law, and the Wiccan Rede [or two of the three] people feel it can be classified Wicca. Like Dianic as Lark mentioned, but i have heard of a similar branch rather new to the Wicca umbrella for men, celebrating the God.

You will probably do best as an eclectic which is like a grab bag, but you should really research and study before calling yourself anything, in case you learn soon after it doesn't work with your views. Research the history, read some articles and beginner books like Wicca for Life [Raymond Buckland] or Wicca: A Solitary Guide [Scott Cunningham] before choosing. There are many other books, and some great guides not specifically Wiccan, but best to focus on one path before you get lost in the Pagan sea.
