The thread says that you want to be a witch. Then you write about spells.
Witches rarely, if ever, cast spells. That's Wicca.
I am a witch, and apart from childhood spells, such as blowing out the candles on a cake, I have never cast a spell in my life. My witch teacher didn't either!

Wicca is a religion, that's true; however, it is a religion which does use magic in it's practices. However, it is often magic which does not involve the use of spells. Casting a circle, charging your tools, purifying your sacred space, Drawing Down the Moon are all acts of magic that don't involve spells. Some Wiccans also engage in spellwork, some don't. Personally in the 30 years that I have been a practicing Wiccan I expect I could count all the spells I've cast on the fingers of my two hands.
