  1. i can give you a real run down: you can watch all about it on tv, start with the movie The Craft, then watch Hocus Pocus, followed by Harry Potter, then last Halloweentown. There that should be enough.
    God Bless the thumbs down!!!! It is nice to see i am on the road less traveled!!!!

  2. wiccans are largely witches who find ways to do magick to better themselves and the world around them. in true magick and wicca, there is no evil, there is no devil, only the christians believe in the devil. they use sympathetics, worship the goddess, which is the counterpart of a god they also believe in, and take responsibility for everything they do.

  3. Read, read, read and research, research, research.
    Online: religioustolerance.org, witchvox.com, and timerift.net
    Bookstores usually have Wicca related books in their “new age” section or you can check out your local metaphysical shops.

  4. Stop already! You’re not “pathetic” although the square peg thing tends to resonate with me. Wicca is a very prominent path,but it’s not the only one. As the saying goes,”All witches aren’t Wiccan, but all Wiccans are witches. Strictly speaking it’s a Goddess centered way of thought with The Male God taking second place so to speak. There are,as I said many paths, and the best thing to do is to do research to find the one that “speaks” to you. And be prepared. If you open your heart and soul to the Gods,be ready to ansewer when they call. How will you know? It could come in many forms. A series of odd coincidences that aren’t really coincidences at all..

  5. Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham. This is a gem of a book, anything of his is. This is the book that I got when I decided to become Pagan. It is the best start in the religion that you can get.
    The website that was mentioned earlier witchvox is also a great place. They have many articles about Wicca, and Paganism on their site along with a list of the shops that are available in your area.
    Wicca and Paganism in general are religions where you will be learning your entire life. I will be more than happy to answer to the best of my ability any further questions that you may have in an email.
    Goddess Bless

  6. 1)Ignore the fundies saying you’ll go to hell and are opening yourself up to demons. We 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://www.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.

  7. The timerift link is the most accurate, non-tradition based site on the Internet that I know of.
    But I have to correct another answerer.
    All Wiccans are NOT Witches – by far.
    And any group that holds the God to be less than the Goddess isn’t practicing Wicca, they are Dianics and should quit calling themselves Wiccans.
    Wicca’s primary focus is the BALANCE – not a reaction against traditional male-dominated monotheism.
