If you are interested in magic, you should start off by learning the basics, there are two forum posts that I really recommend to members;
The Basics: Expanded (AwakeTooLong; Located: General Info)
Starting Out (Starrie; Located: General Info)
Understand that magic isn't like you see on television. Real magic is spiritual not physical, so spells that promise you; transformation, controlling the elements, changing the physical dimension,..etc. will not work. Understanding the laws of the physical dimension is important.
I'm new here too. I started off with the newbie section and read through it, it will help you start off with the magic. Start with what your intrested in and then move into elements. Read through spell books and practice and study through basics and explanations.
I might not be very helpful being new as well but I hope that helps at least a little.
Hello and welcome to SoM ! My suggestion is to learn some of the basics and then narrow down what you want to learn. Magick is a big world and you can't learn all of it at once. If you have any questions feel free to ask me or anyone else on this site. The people here are pretty helpful
