If you don’t want to convert to my religion – then stay away from Wicca.

Because that’s what it is – NOT magic.

Wicca is about a relationship with the gods of Wicca – not casting spells.

If you are interested in ceremonial magick, look at Aleister Crowley or John Dee.

You need to study A LOT and drop the color coding of magic because magic is not color coded.

Like many people have suggested, try http://wicca.timerift.net/ Also, pick up lots of books to read. Some really good authors are Scott Cunningham, Vivianne Crowley, Janet and Stewart Farrar, Gavin Bone and Raymond Buckland. Magic is not a tenet of Wicca. Wiccans accept magic as real force, and some use it, but the religion itself is independent of witchcraft. The three basic tenets of Wicca are: Believe in duality of Deity, God and Goddess, and honor them. Celebrate the Sabbats and Esbats. Follow the Wiccan Rede “and it harm none, do as you will” There are others, and the “actual” tenets… Read more »

Start here:

and start reading up on wicca.

I realize you want to get at the magic part right away but it doesn’t work that way. Real magic requires a lot of discipline, study and personal purification. Although you change for it, it also changes you.

Be careful what you wish for.

Look up “Observer Effect”on your web browser and study the science of magic first. This will help to eliminate unwanted side effects. Learn “The Heisenberg uncertainty principle” Since magic begins with the observer study psychology. This will help you in spell writting as well as setting up proper spells and rituals. There are several good websights that have very good songs and poems “spells” including many christian “spells” I’ve known several wiccans and people that practice white magic.Grey magic is sort of shoddy white magic and it is a consequence rather than a true magic.

I studied Wicca for a long time but the first thing that was important to learn is getting in tune with nature and discovering the God and Goddess.

Although I am no longer Wiccan, I still agree that these things are important and am glad that I did that first.

I read “Wicca – A Guide for the Solitary Practioner” by Scott Cunningham and that gave me a really good, firm foundation.

I gave you a few links below for candle magick. Candle magick can be simplistic and safe.

I would still suggest checking out Cunningham’s work though.

The only good thing I know about Wicca
is they revere beautiful places of nature.
All the rest is dark and shady with witches,
and black magic, and worshipping strange
gods that died (and never arose from the
grave like the true God..Jesus, did). I’d
strongly advise against getting involved in
this pagan religion.

An action or effort undertaken because of a personal need to effect change, especially as associated with Wicca or Wiccan beliefs.
Try to goggle it. You are in the Religion and Spirituality section of yahoo answers.

Well, I went through a period where I was serious about Wicca too. First, check the web. There are tons of sites that explain all the basics. You’ll need to go out and buy a few things. I got a book that was for beginning Wiccans. It told me all I needed. There are tons of great books out there. There is no church or anything, so it’s not like you need to officially “convert”. Just convert in your heart and mind. Make sure you know why you’re doing it, and everything you believe in. As for what to buy:… Read more »

God either appeared to joseph with a mighty vision of a man and a sword and said: I will fight your Battles for you!

First off you’ll need a top hat and a stick with both ends being white. Next you may or may not way a cape. I think a cape makes you a bit more mysterious. After that, practice your “TADAA”‘s. They will come in handy.

Never start off by sawing someone in half. Start small.

If you are serious about becoming a Wiccan, I’d find a better resource. There’s only a handful of Wiccans on here, ALTHOUGH the ones who ARE here are all very nice people, a lot nicer than me! ^_^

Check out your local library, or find a legit website for Wicca.

If you are interested in Wicca, then your first step is to learn about what the religion is and isn’t.
The religion is about honoring the gods. It is not about magic.
A good online resource is http://wicca.timerift.net

If you are interested in magick then you should start reading the works of Aleister Crowley as people who are familiar with Crowley’s work are the ones who have a legitimate reason for spelling magic with a “k”.

Wicca and magic is evil. I won’t try to convert you to my faith, but i am going to pray for you, that God will show you the truth.

Go right on ahead and start practicing magick. Your spells will do about as much good as any christians praying has ever done.
Or at least, theres a good chance they’ll have the same efficiancy rating.

And as for where to start, try books, or google.

OK, let me tell you this then…any spell you cast will come back to you. Everything comes back to it’s source. If you hate your life, everyone will hate their life. You know have somoe responsibility here….

Start with easy card tricks. Learn to roll coins with your fingers. This skill is essential to pulling coins from a child’s ear.

Wicca is about reverence for nature, not Harry Potter like fantasy.
