I have recently discovered the ways of wicca and I was looking for some guidance on how to start my journey?

I am 16 and have always been fascinated with nature so when I talked to my dad he told me to search Wicca. And I have decided I would like to start my Wiccan path, but I don’t know where to begin.

http://wicca.timerift.net is a good first step. It includes recommended books and other resources.

Ishtar

Read The Truth About Witchcraft Today and Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham. You can’t go wrong starting there.

James

all you have to do is ask satin,and he will begin to toss plenty of candy out for you to pick up.,we love you all,the holy family,by the way,he will be back someday for a payment!

Camille

Deut. 18:10-12
10There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
I guess you want to go to hell?

One of the first things you should probably do is prepare to deal with ignorant fundies who will mouth idiotic things at you – especially those who say things like all Wiccans are Satanists and such (which even a layperson like myself with just an elementary knowledge of the religion knows isn’t true.)
Edit: Oh, look…there’s some now…wave to the people, James, Camille and servatis!

Honestly? I dont think you should be anywhere near this stuff! You should read a bible.. Wicca is not good stuff. Its one step away from satanism.

Sabriel

omgsh, my child don’t do it, i beg of you not to do it. please please please don’t sell your soul to false teachings of demons and satan. he wants to controll you. his main goal is to seek out who he may devour. don’t do it, for what ever reason you may think it’s a good thing for becoming a wiccan it’s a lie. satan is the cheif deceiver, l don’t let Him decieve you.
pray with me,
Our Father, which art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done,
in earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
[For thine is the kingdom,
the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.]
Amen.
don’t do it, please i beg you. Go to Christ instead he loves you with all His heart. No matter what others may say about Him, he;s the only one who will truely love you and will ALWAYS ALWAYS be there for you and give you eternal life. don’t fall into the trap. you can rise against the devil, he’s already been conquered by God and can’t touch us if we believe and put our faith in God and live in Jesus Christ.
don’t do it. I beg…..just remember if you feel scared at night or feel like theres voices in your head say the name JESUS CHRIST HELP ME, (ALOUD) and the demons and voices will shudder away…please don’t forget, God loves you.

The answers you got from Labgrl and Ishtar do an excellent job giving you a start point.

TheUrbanPagan-dot-com

Good Wicca sites include “The Witches Voice” at http://witchvox.com/ and “Wicca for the Rest of Us” at http://wicca.timerift.net/ .
A slightly more general site that still includes a lot of good information in The Urban Pagan at http://www.theurbanpagan.com/
Also, search through Yahoo Groups for Wicca or Pagan groups in your area
I also suggest reading Cunningham’s “Wicca: a Guide for the Solitary Practitioner”.

Hi and Merry Meet –
It can be difficult to find good, accurate resources on Wicca, so you need to beware, because there’s a lot of what many of us call “witchcrap” out there. Here are some good resources:
RESOURCES FOR WICCANS:
CoG – Covenant of the Goddess – http://www.cog.org
A good place to start — It’s a national organization of (legally-recognized) Wiccan “churches” – Wiccan covens, clergy and solitaries — with local “councils” in many cities.
CoG provides general, basic information, links to resources and other organizations, Groups, Covens, teachers, High Priest(ess)es, and much more. CoG also “certifies” clergy and Elders, and sponsors “Merry Meet” – a yearly 5-day festival.
2. Circle Sanctuary – http://www.circlesanctuary.org
Circle is a Pagan (not just Wiccan) Sanctuary, working farm, and learning center. It offers training, workshops, festivals, networking, and sponsors other organizations (notably, Lady Liberty League (http://www.ladylibertyleague.org) which offers support, resources, networking and advocacy for any Pagans experiencing religious persecution..
3. Witchvox – http://www.witchvox.com
Witchvox is a wonderful resource that offers general, basic information, referrals and links to local and regional resources on Pagan Classes, Groups, Organizations, Merchants, and more.
5. Wicca For the Rest of Us – – http://wicca.timerift.net/
One of the better Pagan internet sites; lots of good information, articles, resources, links, networking, etc.
6. “Beginning Wicca” Yahoo Group – http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BeginningWicca/
– One of the better Yahoo groups with several High Priests and Priestess members, so there are lots of good discussions and good information available in both the online discussions, and the Files section.
7. Religious Tolerance — Pages on Wicca: – http://www.religioustolerance.org/witchcra.htm
Another good resource for factual information.
B. BOOKS:
1. Books And Authors To *Avoid*:
I don’t want to be negative, but since these books tend to be very popular (and often recommended by beginners who don’t know better) I thought it might be wise to include just a few words on which books should be AVOIDED due to factual errors or ethical problems: (I can provide more info on this, for anyone who requests it).
AVOID anything by:
Silver Ravenwolf
Douglas Monroe’s “21 Lessons of Merlin”
Kisma Stepanich
Edain McCoy
2. On Scott Cunningham:
A word on Scott Cunningham and his books, “Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner” and “Living Wicca”:They are very good basic introductions, but (imo) it’s crucial to realize that Scott was advocating a NEW Kind of Wicca — Until his publications, Wicca was a Mystery, Initiatory, Lineaged Path, whose deepest, most profound principles and practices were oath-bound and not available publically (they still are not, but most beginners don’t realize that).
HOWEVER — and again, this is crucial: (many of us feel that) Scott never intended that his book(s) should REPLACE Traditional Wicca, or that those who COULD find good Covens and teachers, would avoid or neglect doing so…..,Anyone who *avoids* being well-trained by a good, experienced High Priest/ess, or practicing within a Coven, does themselves a huge DIS-service, and will miss a LOT of some of the most important experiences and opportunities of Wicca.
Finally, let me recommend an article – “Getting Started in Wicca” –
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Witch_Essentials/message/17736
Which offers more info on good resources and specifics on how to get started.
Please also consider: This is just NOT the best place to get good, reliable, respectful information on (authentic) Wicca – instead, be sure to check out the resources above.
Blessed Be –
~Gaia
