How does one become a wiccan?

I’m interested in the wiccan way of life, I know it has to do alot with nature but I’m interested in the witch craft and spirituality involved in it. If there is anyone who could tell me what I have to do etc. thanks.

  1. You don’t “have” to do anything babe. Just declare yourself Wiccan, and you are. There’s no baptism, or scripture, or indoctrination you need to subject yourself to.
    The only thing you really need to do (pretty much on any spiritual journey) is read as much as you can. A good starting place is the Internet. Google “Wicca” and go for it. Maybe pick up a book. A good one is Spiral Dance by Starhawk.

  2. 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. Might help you narrow things down.
    8)I probably won’t be able to help you beyond basics. I haven’t been Wiccan in over 15 years.

  3. You should study it and become familar with the basic concepts and beliefs of the religon. Then if you feel like the beliefs mesh with your own, you can either dedicate yourself as a solitary, or locate a coven and become a member.
    Couple of good books would be To ride a Silver broomstick by silver ravenwolf or the books by scott cunningham called solitary wicca and living wicca.

  4. It’s not so much an issue of “what to do.” Wiccans are people who believe in Wicca and follow its practices. So your first step should be reading A LOT about the religion and figuring out whether this is really you path, and if so, how exactly it will fit into your life.
    Here’s some recommendations:

  5. my advice is to read into the actual facts before jumping into anything .yes wiccan is of nature but then again everything is but you must understand as to how to use the energies involved.research everything you have interest in then make your choice ,and always say a prayer for the truth before hand as well as encircle yourself with white light and demand any and all negitivity be removed from you as well as any negitivity attachments to you hon. kim

  6. Merry Meet,
    If you are interested about learning Wicca and/or Witchcraft here are a few legitimate sources to glean knowledge from. First being Witchvox at http://www.witchvox.com/. Here you will gain knowledge through fellowship with other of like mind and knowledge through the countless articles posted. If this is not enough one could look into getting online training through the Sacred Mists at http://www.workingwitches.com/wicca/cour… or OZ Wicca at http://www.ozwicca.com/ , both are pretty decent for learning the Craft on the Web.
    Also if you are close enough to a group that specializes in education and development like the SCWF try and join them even if it’s on a limited capacity. Ultimately, study, study and then study some more. Find all you can and definitely cross reference whenever possible, this way you can get the best out of all you learn.
    I also suggest that you get your hands on Wicca for Beginners by Thea Sabin and/or The Circle Within by Dianne Sylvan. Both of these books are very good reading and both will give you some deeper insight to the Craft and how it relates to you. Also you cannot go wrong with anything by Scott Cunningham.
    If you are a teen, I suggest Elements of Witchcraft: Natural Magick for Teens by Ellen Dugan. Teen Witch by Silver Ravenwolf is also good. But neither is completely accurate, but they will help you out.
    Ultimately, study as much as you need to before deciding that you are Wiccan. Find those near you who are reputable and knowledgeable. Also stay away from those who are playing Wicca if you are serious about the religion and the craft, they will only slow you down and/or mislead you. Also, read all the books you can the good ones as well as the bad ones.
    Remember, you are the one that decides who’s a good or bad author not someone else because every author in my belief has something to offer, all you have to do is ignore the information that is not accurate. Oh and when the opportunity raises cross reference the information learned for accuracy.
    I hope my blurp helps out.
    Blessed Be
    Nyjh
