I just made a profile but I've been on this site for awhile now. My name is Kaitlyn and I like cats. I'm 15 years old and my level of magic is still novice because I just started not long ago. How do you know when your level of magic has moved up? I like magic so far and most of my spells have worked. I think I made it stop raining once.
Magickal capability doesn't really move in levels, it is a gradual increase as you study and practice.
You will find that when you look back at your journey into magickal practice you suddenly realise that you are much better now than you were before, this is especially more obvious if you keep a book of shadows or other magickal journal of your journey.
