For me Mabon has always been a time of change, like my world is just starting a transformation. It is a time for hard work and reflection. I usually feel very energized at this time of year.

In previous years I would celebrate by throwing myself into my schoolwork, drinking cider and cinnamon tea, and thinking about how to best what I've done before. I'm no longer in school, so my old habits don't apply in the same way.

This year I'm hoping to celebrate Mabon by preparing to move out on my own, cider, a little candle and tarot ceremony, and reflecting on how to improve in the future. :)

ETA: moon, that sounds like a wonderful celebration! I love the idea of using acorns! Let me know how your cider comes out (if you end up making it).

Hello ^-^
I'm Seraphina and I'm 15.
I've been interested in mythology, witchcraft and the paranormal ever since I can remember, but I'd never heard of Wicca until about a month ago. I saw the word online and felt a chill run down my spine and I knew that I needed to learn more about it. Since then, I've been researching and reading about Wicca, and I know that I want to make it a part of my life. I'd absolutely love any helpful comments or advice, or just people who are willing to talk to me about Wicca.
Thanks so much everyone!

-Seraphina

Hey everyone  :)
I've always been interested in things concerning mythology and witchcraft, but it wasn't until very recently that I discovered Wicca.
Lately, I haven't been as happy as I would like to be, and I knew I needed to make some changes in my life, only I didn't know what needed to be changed. I saw something about Wicca online and, as soon as I found out what it was, a sort of chill ran down my spine and I knew that I needed to learn more about it. That was about a month ago, and since then I've done some research and have decided that I want to become Wiccan, but I'm not sure exactly how I should do that.
I have so many questions, and a lot of them can't be answered with a google search.
Before this, I was Agnostic, though I had absolutely no problem with any religions. I've never believed in a God or Goddess, and from what I've read about Wicca it seems that there are a lot of different Gods and Goddesses and not everyone worships or believes in the same ones.
Is it a requirement to believe in a certain deity to be Wiccan? And, if so, how do you decide which one/s?
At what point can I begin calling myself a Wiccan? When can I begin casting spells?
Of course, I understand that you can't turn people into frogs or cause objects to levitate, and I've read the Wiccan Rede and understand the 'And it harm none, do what ye will.'
I have a basic knowledge of the religion, but I don't feel like I know enough. The town I live in is small and pretty conservative, and our library doesn't have a lot of books on Wicca or Paganism, but I've checked out and am in the process of reading the books they do have. What I really need is a person that I can talk to who is experienced enough to answer my questions and give me advice on what I should do next.

I'm sorry this is so long, but I felt like I needed to explain what exactly I'm looking for.

Thank you very much to anyone who offers help or advice!

A little more on the story..

I been reading about kabbalah, and I keep like a notebook and write, draw, things I learn. That day I found my pentacle tetragrammaton, I had a visit in the morning, she came to talk about the bible, a Jehovah's witness. So I welcome her in the house, I am a friendly guy and likes to talk to new people and see their point of view. The point is she had this bible with the four letters in Hebrew, she tells me it is the name of God, Jehovah. I brought my notebook and look at a kabbalah tree of life, which I had divided in the four worlds,  and there in each world I had the same four letters in Hebrew, each on one world. This brought my attention. That day afternoon the tetragrammaton was in my bed. Can't find out how it was there after months of looking for it. I did my research, and yes I found all this information that the four letters is the name of God יהוה YHVH ..

I'm still learning, and yes I feel very connected to this tetragrammaton. If I tell you more maybe you think I'm ;) ku ku.  :D

The person from Jehovah's witnesses told you wrong.  Jehovah is a bastardized, mistranslation.  The Hebrew characters you reference are a symbol of the nameless G-d.  There is no correct pronunciation because they were never meant to be uttered; the god of Abraham is unknowable, unnamed, sexless, ageless, and all encompasing.  It's a  part of the Ein Sof... represented by Kether.  Because it is unknowable, Hebrew Kabbalah adds another Sephira, Da'at, to keep the number at 10.

Great primer for Hebrew Kabbalah: God is a Verb by Rabbi David A Cooper

A BTW Tribunal (shudder).  In spite of our fairly strict adherence to some things, I think BTW's would be among the first to reject such an event.  That doesn't keep us from snarking about some folks though, and thoroughly discussing perceived transgressions.

Scott was a man of integrity.  I think he would have accepted negative reactions with grace and done what in his opinion served the Craft best. Though I'm sure the divisiveness that came out of his books would have horrified him.
