Find a library. Go online. lots of books. lots of sites. And after a awhile you will know if you are one of us. What you do after that is up to you.

Obey me or go to hell. Love, god

Just be a person. Religions, spirituality’s, and superstitions are all completely unnecessary

When I discovered Wicca it just felt right to me. I did a lot of studying, and the beliefs and principles just made sense to me. To be Wiccan you need to follow the Wiccan Rede – “An it harm none, do as ye will…” There is a lot more to it, but that is pretty much the main point.
We also worship a Goddess and God and respect nature. You can also perform magick, but that is not the main point of being Wiccan.

answer: do you practice the RELIGION of Wicca or one of the pagan religions? That’s how.
Some common pagan beliefs (not all pagan religions believe these): reincarnation * karma * harming none * multiple deities (male and female) * a reverence for life and nature * celebrating the cycle of life and the year with holidays and full moons *
Things pagans don’t believe in: the devil * hell * a savior * a deity that condemns someone for eternity for not believing in him

1)Ignore the fundies saying you’ll go to hell and are opening yourself up to demons. They don’t believe in either.
2)Get the book: Wicca, a Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham (Amazon.com used books is a great resource)
3)Avoid Silver Ravenwolf, DJ Conway and most Llewellyn books
4)Do NOT pay for lessons over the internet. You can’t ask for references. Do NOT give out personal information to anyone over the internet. Get a PO Box.
5)www.witchvox.com http://wicca.timerift.net
6)Learn and keep learning about various paths in paganism.
7) get the book: “Drawing Down the Moon” by Margo Adler (an older book that’s a little dated, especially concerning Asatru but a good resource) – it gives an overview on a lot of pagan traditions.

Do you worship as a Wiccan would? IE- a God and Goddess in an interplay; with an emphasis on nature and a distinct Celtic-agriculture feel, even if you are into another pantheon? If so, and you follow Wiccan religious rites, you are a Wiccan.
In other words, you would know.

You can’t accidental become Wiccan.

There’s nothing to “tell”. Either you practice the Wiccan Religion or you don’t.
Spells can work for anyone. Magic is a system, not a religion. It’s also not good or bad. It’s how you choose to use it.
I know magic works because I’ve been doing it for years. Wicca is just one of many faiths that embrace Magic. But Wiccans and Witches aren’t
the only ones who use magic.
You can be both a Wiccan and a witch, these two words are not the same. None of these words has anything to do with devil worship.
One of the biggest sore points among Wiccans is the improper usage of the terms “Wiccan” and “Witch”. Too many people use the terms interchangeably,
presuming that they both mean the same thing. They do not.

Wiccan
Wicca is just one of many faiths that embrace Magic. Wicca is a religion, and someone who follows that religion is called a Wiccan. Sometimes it
can be difficult to accurately define Wicca, and not all Wiccans will define themselves the same way. Observing the 8 Wiccan Sabbats, honoring the
Gods and/or Goddesses, creating sacred space for rituals, to name a few. Many traditional Wiccans also feel that belonging to a coven is also a
requirement and that those who practice their religion as a solitary, should not refer to themselves as Wiccan. Personally, I’m still not sure on
that point. Typical Wiccans also practice magick, and therefore are also witches. You cannot be a “natural Wiccan” any more than you could be a
“natural Christian”.
Witch
The practice of witchcraft is not associated with any religion, therefore you can be a witch and yet also be a member of any number of
religions (or none). Using the natural energies within yourself, along with the energies of herbs, stones or other elements to make changes
around you is considered witchcraft. Though the skills and gifts that are part of witchcraft can be inherited from parents or grandparents,
you aren’t automatically a witch just because your grandmother may have been one. The use of magick takes practice, experience and learning.
On a side note, a male witch is called a witch, not a warlock.
Pagan
While I’m explaining terminology, I thought I would throw in “Pagan” as well. Paganism refers to a variety of non-Christian/Jewish/ Islamic
religions that are usually polytheistic and are often nature-based. Wicca is only one Pagan religion, but there are others such as Santeria,
Asatru, or Shamanism. Many people do not necessarily identify with a specific religion, and just use the broad term “Pagan” to define their
spiritual path. Pagan religions are distinct and separate from each other, and it should not be assumed that they are just different names for
the same faith.
