  • Witches are people who practice witchcraft.

    Wiccans are people who believe in and practice Wicca.

    No ceremony /makes/ you a witch or a Wiccan, nor are you suddenly locked into that path for the rest of eternity just because you embraced it at some point.

  • Well, one, do you want to be a wiccan and/or a witch?

    And you can change over time, so don’t try ‘forever’.

    Just be, if things change along the way, you’ll change too. You might stay the same or similar, or you might not. You’ve got to be more open to things like that.

  • There is no ritual or ceremony to bind yourself to a religion forever. Nor is there a ritual to live forever. If you’re actually serious about practicing the RELIGION of Wicca or other pagan religion:

    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.

  • While I have no idea about a ceremony I can suggest reading the book Drawing Down the Moon. It is a great book written by a whole gamut of Pagans.

  • Um that stuff is BS. Believing that you can be a witch is akin to believing in fairies and santa…it just isn’t real and the people who practice it are weird and probably have mental problems.

  • There isn’t one. You choose your own religion, and you don’t choose it “forever”. If you become Wiccan, you aren’t Wiccan “forever”. If you change your mind on what you believe in, and decide you’re not Wiccan, then you aren’t one anymore.
