AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.

For me, I was doing magic and was psychic at age 6. However all knew was that if I focused on a desire it would come true most of the time. Then at age 8 I actually "googled" it and I came up with this site and then I self taught myself about wichcraft and wicca.

For me it was more a case of Wicca finding me than the other way round.
I was raised in a Christian household although I always felt a connection to both ancient mythologies and to the natural world around me. I often felt closer to the Divine in the woods than I did in a church listening to a sermon. But I was active in my church and spent several years in the academic study of the Bible.
Then I went to Vietnam as an Army nurse during the Vietnam war. What I saw there challenged all of my spiritual beliefs and by the time I came home I was a confirmed atheist. And so I remained for many years.
As a result of my service in Vietnam I also suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and sometimes this would flare up and leave me feeling particularly unsettled and unhappy. One time when this happened I went walking in our upper meadow on a lovely summer evening. And as I walked I thought to myself that if I were to ever believe in something again it would be in the old Gods of earth and sky. And there was this sort of cosmic chuckle in my head saying, "Well, it took you long enough!" The next day I received a catalog (which I hadn't ordered) that had some books on Wicca in it. I didn't know what Wicca was, but I knew I needed to read the books, so I ordered them. When they came and I started the first one I knew that I had found my spiritual home.
I practiced as a solitary for a number of years and then was fortunate enough to find a coven that was a perfect fit for me. I trained with them for six years before attaining my Third Degree and forming a coven of my own. I led a large teaching coven for 12 years before stepping back as an Elder and working on building bridges between Wicca and the rest of the interfaith community.
For me being Wiccan is not about the spellwork...though I do use spells when I need them. Wicca is first and foremost a religion and a way of building our spiritual connections to the Divine. If all one is doing is spellwork without following the practices of Wicca then you may be a very good Witch, but I would question whether the word Wicca truly describes what you are doing.

i look back, and it was kind of inevitable. Maybe it is one of those things that kids from the 90's... I look at what I watched and I have always had a facination with magic. But it kind of found me. I tried it when I was 14, but due to my family and their issues, I dropped out of it till I was 23. And I still try and study, but not always easy in a house where I have to hide what I think and feel. But I at least try and meditate if nothing else. It feels right for me, I know I am getting closer to the path I should be on.

It all start it when i tried to learn tarot. I went in an antique store and asked about an old tarot deck but i was told all they had was an old ouija board. Looking up on-line about ouija i found out about wicca. That was about 2 month ago and since then I read almost everything i could put my hands on.

I had always been interested in magic but I kept getting the wrong books, I even got wizardology lol. The only actually good magical thing I had was a tarot deck. My whole life I would sometimes have dreams about something that would happen soon after that. Sometimes I know things that I dont know how I know. The last thing that happened was me and one of my friends was trying to call one of my friends then but he wasnt answering but then I somehow knew where he was so we went there and found him. I also could always sense the emotions of people around me and sometimes I know what they are thinking. One thing that happened to me was once I was reading a book in the park then without even realizing what I was doing I raised my right hand in front of my face then I caught a soccer ball that would have hit me right in my face. The weirdest thing that ever happened to me was once someone threw a football that was going for my head then I felt a stronger feeling than anything Ive ever had for everything to stop then everything seemed to freeze even the ball. I moved my hand to make sure I could still move and I could. Somehow I wasnt surprised and I looked around but then a few seconds later everything returned to normal.I wanted to find answers but my bad books were not help so I did something I somehow never thought to do before and googled magic. Then I found this site and now Im trying to learn everything I can. I still dont know why everything seemed to stop maybe it was my imagination but it seemed so real. Anyway thats my story.

I used to ride the bus to school, and an older kid on the bus was wiccan and had a deck of tarot cards. He made everyone draw a card to represent themselves, and I drew the World card. After that, I was intrigued and couldn't help but start reading and learning anything I could about Wicca and I haven't stopped since. That was more than four years ago.

I think it has been a life long process of seeking, trial and error and discovery. I think some of the things I used to believe just didn't ring true anymore or in the same way......perhaps everything else I have learned and experienced in life has brought me to this point of recognition and realization.
