Welcome to our Forum Rain.

Oh, don't worry about the Dragon. He might look fierce and scary, but he's a pussycat really. If you ask nicely, he'll even share his cookies with you.......

..... and as well as read, read, read and read some more, practise, practise, practise and practise some more. It's the only way to make Paganism and Witchcraft part of your life.

Beware, though, of claiming to be Wiccan. Many (not all) Wiccans maintain that the only way to become Wiccan is to be formally initiated into a coven able to trace its lineage all the way back to Gerald Gardner's New Forest coven in Southern England in the 1930s and 40s; some will get quite snippy with anyone claiming to be self-initiated, although oddly enough Gardner himself never made that claim, admitting that there were other traditions beside his own, and even some he had never heard of  ;D ;D.

However the title "Witch" has no such exclusivity attached to it; anyone can call themselves Witch or Pagan, so perhaps it's best to use one of these terms rather than Wiccan!

Welcome to our Forum Ismeri; may your Path, whatever it turns out to be, bring you joy, love and wisdom. Blessed Be,

Alchymist.

Welcome to TCC Ismeri, Canis has covered the bases quite well there, I shall only advise that you read, read, read and once you've read, read some more  ;D Don't worry, everybody gets the same advice  ;)

Welcome to TCC Ismeri. Feel free to look around, there's plenty of thread to help those new to pagan paths. As for reading material, http://wicca.com/forums/index.php?topic=400.0 has a lot of good titles for those starting out. I started out with Raymond Buckland's Wicca for One and Complete Book of Witchcraft and found them to be a good starting point.




ETA: Also, there's a good search function here you can use if you have something in particular you want information on.

I am new to this site and new to the idea of becoming Wicca. I was born and raised in a small town in the Bible belt so any kind of pagan faith was frowned upon. No books on Wicca in the library, no covens or meetings, nothing. I am thankfully leaving this place in the next year or so but in the meantime I would like to educate myself on this path. I understand its best to take a year and a day of study before deciding to declare yourself Wiccan. I would love any advice or suggested reading material or other forums I can visit to give myself the opportunity to make an informed decision. I have many questions and am very eager to learn all I can. I am looking for a more peaceful and meaningful path for my life and I think that following a Wiccan path could help me do this. I am looking forward to making friends here and hearing all the wisdom you can share

Welcomes to Upstart (hee hee sorry  ;D ) and to ARC.

Hopefully we will live up to your expectations folks, and you can learn with us, teach and discuss as we all progress along our respective paths. Feel free to delve into our other threads and have no fear of reanimating the older ones if you wish to address anything on them; it all helps to keep the info alive.

Nice to have another Scot join us ARC, I live in the Scottish Borders.

As I've said before, my adopted Mother showed me this path.  I will forever be grateful to her.  She was a lifelong Catholic but had some beliefs that were not "mainstream".  I have wavered and stumbled through the years and my path has never been a straight one.  If it were, I am sure I would have left it long ago.  I don't believe the Goddess and God brought me here but I am sure they welcomed me with open arms.
