Hello and welcome to TCC Virgo5

Firstly you want to be a highpriestess, in what exactly? you need to be a bit more specific. Other than that, your best bet is to get yourself into a coven; those are the best schools for Pagan paths. But do be very careful about which coven you go to.

I would strongly advise however, you take a lot of time and study up about your path before you go any further forward. On this site there is a lot of information, simply read through the posts here and that will help. Pay attention to stickied threads here, and there is also this thread  http://wicca.com/forums/index.php?topic=400.msg168000#msg168000    it offers a list of books you should get your hands on.

Sorry, no one said this was going to be easy....  ;D ;D

BTW. Introduce yourself to us, we like to know who we are talking to  ;)

May you find what you seek
Blessed be.

Welcome to TCC, Virgo5.  The road to being a High Priestess in most traditions is a long one.  Some never make it there. Start with baby steps.  Learn all you can on your own.  Then look for a coven you are comfortable with.  They will take you from there.  Your beginning studies will be at a minimum 1 year and a day just to reach 1st degree.  From there it is usually at least 2 years to get to 2nd degree. It depends on the covens requirements.  I wish you well on your journey.

I'm the army in tx, originally from pa, and usually finding a coven or a circle isn't the easiest thing to do so I've tried to do what I can with solitary practice eve though I prefer a more social setting. I also have to split my time between the army and anything wiccan related I chose to do. Which is why I was considering the possibility of an online high priestess school which might be better for my army schedule.

Um... I don't think it works like that. Don't get me wrong - I'm sure that there are fraudulent sites out there claiming to "take you to the next level!" even though they have no such recognized authority to bestow these things upon people...

It takes years upon years of dedicated study and practice to achieve what you're seeking, and there is no quick fix that will legitimately get you there any sooner. And if you are considering an "online high priestess school" you should just call yourself a high priestess and save your $$$...

Welcome to TCC.  Be very wary of online stuff and hold on tight to your purse.  Not sure where you are based out but I suspect you can find a coven close by.

Well I know that there some real online wiccan priestess schools. I don't doubt that some of them are fradulent tho. Part of my issue tho is that I don't have a car at the moment. I'm trying to amend that though. That's part of the reason I was thinking online.

Hello & Welcome, Virgo5. Please tell us why you're interested in your path (Wicca?) ;D

I'm not quite new to the path but I have had a hard time for a long time trying to find other covens and circles. Because that was difficult, I just went with being solitary for a while. I've been interested in wicca for a long time tho. Right now now I'm trying to go for wiccan chaplain in the army :) one requirement of chaplain is to have proof of the religious leadership aka high priestess.

Being a high priestess is a little more complicated than getting a car. It takes years of study. I
personally think online study for what you are looking for is useless. They only want your money.


You have been warned .

Goddess bless.

I'm aware of the fact that its more complex than buying a car and that not every website offering what I'm looking for is totally legit. I just said that I was considering it as one possibility of many. I do hope to find what I'm looking for :) and I thank you for wanting me to be careful

The bold above is the key.  How can you prove religious leadship if you have never been a religious leader?  The type of leadership they are talking about is done in the flesh, not online.  The title "High Priestess" is something earned by much more than reading books or studying an online course.  If it were that easy everyone would be one.  I am going to suggest you go to a metaphysical shop and talk to someone there.  They will have a lot of information and can possibly direct you to a coven or circle group where you can gain more knowledge.  Blessings.
