If you need assistance with magic and the practice of it, I would suggest reading over Newbie Central, Tips, and Faqs on the Home Tab. The SoM Survival Guide is also helpful and can be found under the Articles tab. It is under featured articles and along with it, there are several other articles there that can help get you started. Also, check out the Starting Out thread in the General Information section of the public forums.
You could also search through the covens listed in the Groups Tab and contact the leaders of the one that offers what exactly it is that you are seeking assistance with or interested in.
Also, a few beginners books that I would recommend are:
Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner. ~ Written by Scott Cunningham.
Living Wicca: A Further Guide for the Solitary Practitioner ~ Written by Scott Cunningham.
They have a good deal of information on meditation, visualization, raising energy, correspondences, circle casting, etc.

i agree with kelistarian, what is the need? one doesn't need to cast magic to be a witch/wiccan/pagan, there's much more to it than magic. it's a good thing to know, but it's not the be all and end all. i've been a witch for almost 8 years now, and i've only cast a handful of spells. not because i cannot, but because i don't need many spells. a protection, couple healing, occasional spell for a friend, and a job spell or two, but that's about it.
if you're so determined, look into energy work and meditation. to cast spells successfully, you need 3 things, the first is the ability to focus/clear your mind. second is to charge energy, directing it to a desired outcome, and grounding. the final one isn't really magical, but it's important, you need to put in some effort of your own. a job spell won't work if you don't pass out a few resume's, a love spell won't work if you don't try talking to the person, and so on.
Hi guys! I am new to this sight!
I believe I have magic. I can make psi balls at will! But they always seem to fizz out immediately.
As far as I know my parents don't believe in magic. I am the only believer in my family.
I beleive that I am a werecat. Or was.
I'm serious! I hiss and growl and snarl at things!
If someone scares me I hiss at them! If I feel threatened I start growling!
Does anyone know to make me fully werecat again!
The Pagan system is quite circular, a non-static system,
very much reflected in it's symbolism, interchange of gods
and Sabbats (times of worship and celebration of gods/godesses),
one through such practices as devotion and paying especial
respect to certain great astronomical changes such as Yule,
Beltane, &c. can easily begin tapping into the currents of the
Universe and wouldn't need some hand held recipe book on
The Universe is magical and it's light draws characters and
sigils wherever one is capable of seeing them, the mind
and a little energy is all you need for magick, as long
as you fulfill your will: invoking a god, getting stronger,
banishing a baneful force, growing potatoes...
