Ready to Open Up
By:
Post # 1
Don't really know where to start, but here it goes.

So, I actually discovered this site 4 years ago and it couldn't have been a better time. Always was interested in Wicca, but no one would help or support me. So, I decided to turn to the web which led me here. Finally, found somewhere to begin studying that was welcoming and easy to understand. Started coming here everyday to learn more about Wicca. Even casted a couple spells and obtained some items like Tarot Cards. (Healing crystals especially, love them.) And yet, I never said anything, just lurked. Even though I really wanted to participate, I was too shy to bring myself to post anything. (Even now, still a little nervous.) Very recently however, I decided to just face it and join. Not going to let fear stop me from being who I am anymore. So, my first question is, where should I begin? Also, how do I know which coven is right for me? (I have so many questions.)

Ready to grow as a Wiccan. Willing to be guided. Thank you.

Welcome to the site, officially. I this site is amazing for a number of reasons. I am not Wiccan but I do understand the basic concepts. As a Wiccan you do not have to practice Witchcraft to be considered a Wiccan.

Things I suggest studying if interested or have not already done over the past years are:

  • Moon Phases
  • The Elements
  • Sabbats
  • Wheel of the year
  • Basic Astrology
  • Candle Magic
  • Divination
  • Gods and Goddesses
  • Mythology
  • Pagan History

Other suggestions is looking into books by Scott Cunningham, A Witch Alone by Marian Green, Power of the Witch by Laurie Cabot, Inner Temple of Witch by C. Penczak, and Green Witchcraft by Ann Moura.

Sacred-text.com is a wonderful site as well.

I would also recommend if you have yet to do so work on a book of shadows.

For Practice suggestions:

If you have a divinity or The Goddess set up an Altar; this also implies an AncestryAltar as well if you desire.

Meditation- youtube is greate for this. Grounding is one of the best ones to start off with.

Moon Rituals; Full Moon is this October 24, 2018.

Learn about tools such as candles, chalice, incense, herbs, anthame, offering bowls, feathers, seashells, etc.

Best of luck to you!
