First of all, you need to realize that there are no spontaneous thunder storms, no gusts of wind blowing in your face from out of ancient tomes, no waving your wand and making stuff happen. You can’t become “a Wicca” anymore than you can become “A Christianity.” The word is Wiccan. The difference between a Wiccan and a Witch (which often overlap) is that a Wiccan is someone who adheres to the religion of Wicca: Deity is both male and female. All people are equal. The Earth is sacred and needs to be healed. Do what you want as long… Read more »

What most people consider spells are generally not performed by Wiccans, whether they consider themselves Witches or not. This is my current recommendation for beginning Wicca: 1. Read the 101 material at http://wicca.timerift.net 2. Read through the traditions at http://www.witchvox.com/xtrads.html 3. Find, from the above, one of the groups that doesn’t charge and doesn’t contradict the stuff from step 1. 4. Contact that group and ask if you can try that tradition, even just as a beginner, and what sources they recommend for their beginners. 5. Stick with it for 1 year, at least, unless there is a serious problem.… Read more »

Yes and no.

Wicca is a religion
Witches is normally considered a Way of life
Some wiccans do spells
All Wiccans are Witches but not all witches are Wiccan.
All wiccans are Pagan but not all pagans are wiccan
Make sense in a way?
Witches do 😛

Magic is a system, not a religion. Even Atheists can preform magic. It requires belief in yourself, not belief in any certain higher power. Wicca is just one of many faiths that embrace 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… Read more »

If you are interested in becoming Wiccan you will have to learn more about them first. You won’t learn anything on the internet, everyone tells you different things so it’s hard to know what is right. I recommend you get your hands on a copy of Bucklands Complete Guide to Witchcraft by Raymond Buckland, within you shall learn all that you will need to know about the craft and it is set out in a lesson format. Another good book is Wicca: A guide for the solitary practitioner by Scott Cunningham. I own both and I love them. Once you… Read more »

kill 5 ants and a spider and spread their blood on a white cloth untill it changes to deep red then dip it in lemon juice and keep it under your pillow for 5 days and on 6th night cut your right thumb nail and wrap it in the cloth and say “make me a witch” and throw it in any nearby river. on the next 7th day you will start getting witchy.

Without sarcasm; Why not be You? I’m not condemning what you have interest in at all, but why not become YourSelf? This is a rare species today. 🙂 You are going to be the Best Friend, for yourself, that you’ve ever had for Life. Why not get to know yourself instead? We all have a Spirit that is ready and willing to Guide and lend a hand along our way. You refer to ‘spells.’ That is really another term for Cosmic Attraction. Or, attracting to you what you call upon. For example; I’ve always pictured a house with acreage around… Read more »

First, get the words straight. “Wicca” is the name of a religion. People themselves can’t become religions. However, they can become Wiccans (the name of a practitioner of Wicca). A witch is a practitioner of witchcraft. “Witchcraft” is a vague term that can apply to just about anything from acupuncture to Tarot cards to full-blown elaborate rituals. But it is a “craft”; a practice. A Wiccan is a practitioner of Wicca, which is an earth-based religion formed by Gerald Gardner in the 1950s. It’s an attempt to take various ceremonies and other trappings from various ancient religions (including witchcraft and… Read more »

there really isn’t much difference. Wicca is more spiritual and earth based sometimes polytheistic. Wicca casts spells but not the same as witch. They really are basically the same though.

It depends if you want to be a solo practitioner or if you want to be in a coven. If you want to be in a coven, ask any Wiccans you know in your town where and when they meet.

There is no difference. A witch is what you call someone who is Wiccan.

You need to start with lots of black clothing. Next stop: the makeup counter.
