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.

Well, let me say that whatever path you pick will be a journey. And, its the journey that makes it fun and worth it.
It sounds to me that you've been given a few hints in your childhood. However small or large the hint is, its up to you to recognize it. Having an interest in the spell books should be a good indication that you were directed to witchcraft. But, i think once you start reading about the different paths, you'll know what feels right for you. You'll have a strong interest in one thing over another. Since you mentioned crystals, maybe you should start with elemental magick and see if that interests you.
Good luck on your journey, and everyone here is here to help.
Wicca is not necessarily witchcraft or even the practice of using magic. Wicca is both a lifestyle and a pagan-based religion. Typically what makes a witch Wiccan is living by this lifestyle and taking on specific Wiccan beliefs. Examples would be practicing magic while keeping the 3 Fold Law in mind along with other aspects of the Rede. You can try adopting a Wiccan specific or other complimentary deity as your patron(s). Try keeping in mind dedications to these doctrines, rituals and Pagan celebrations are a good way to begin. Research what I've mentioned and other essential factors that go into being Wicca. You could also try getting involved in the massive Wicca community by attending events such as circles and festivals. Interaction with all ready established Wicca will certainly help you.

In my opinion, if you are asking whether you are Wiccan or not...then you are not Wiccan.
That's not to say that you could not become Wiccan if you wished to. But it's important to understand that Wicca is a very specific religion with specific beliefs and practices. You can read more about the core beliefs of Wicca at http://www.spellsofmagic.com/read_post.html?post=248610 One becomes Wiccan by deciding that they hold those same beliefs, and then does the work and study necessary to learn how to practice the religion and honor the Wiccan Deities.
While it is true that magic is among the practices shared by Wiccans, Wicca is not just about doing spells, etc. In fact many of us do very few spells on any sort of regular basis. If it's the magic that interests you rather than the religion, then you will want to look at other possibilities other than being Wiccan.
One possibility, given your interests, would be witchcraft. Witchcraft IS a form of magical practice which does not necessarily have any relationship to a particular religion. While some witches are Wiccan, that is not the case with all witches.
