Welcome to the happiest Pagan place on earth :)

Help yourself to the goodies on the porch, someone will be by with the lemonade (psst...if they offer you spam, just say NO!).

I am a beginner too. What books are you reading? I have read Cunningham's book for solitaries, Green Witchcraft by Aomeil (sp?) and some on Kitchen Witchery.

There is a thread on Just Talk about good Pagan websites- be sure to check that out. And any questions you have, ask away!!

:cool: Welcome, CrystalRaven :cool:

Have a seat in one of Kaylara's comfy couch/chair thingies and help yourself to the lemonade! Don't worry, I'll not be offerring any SPAM, but beware of the Vikings :eek: :D ;) .

There are plenty of great sources on the net and also books to buy. I think one of the first places I would check, outside of here would be www.witchvox.com . And you might check the links on my sight too.

Don't forget to hit the kinks button on this site, yup, right up there at the top of the page, First button, first row ;) :D ; and also the resources button :D ;) :cool: .

Merry meet :)

Well, a wise woman always said "start where you are standing", it doesn't work that well in english, but it means that you should just begin somewhere, and go your way from there :)

I hope you enjoy yourself here; I know I do. I second the motion that the bumped thread for the 'Fav websites' is a good starting point. Good Luck on your quest.

Read everything you can get your hands on. You'll find a lot of inconsistancies - hey, there is no one way of doing anything. That's why we all have to follow our individual paths. Talk to people here. Post up questions and watch all the opinions fly! Nothing is too silly to post (just take a look at all the posts to do with spam - don't ask!!!!!!!!!!) and everyone is keen to share. And at least we don't all talk at once!

Bright Blessings,

:bigredgri Welcome, welcome, welcome! :bigredgri

Merrily met, Crystal Raven! :) I'm a newbie, too.
If you want someone to talk to about this stuff (or if your just really bored,) Feel free to e- mail me or something. The neophytes of the world have to stick together!
What books have you tried? Silver raven wolf's controversial books are actually really nice for just starting out--my first witchy book ever was Teen Witch. Kind of hokey, but...oh, well. :D
Also try witchvox.com, it's great.
Best of luck on your newfound path!
p.s. I'm normally very quiet, but i tend to babble in type... :)

CrystalRaven, you mentioned in your first post, that, if I'm understandig this correctly, you were (forced) to observe a book (of) religion. May I ask (and you need not answer this if you don't want to,) but what religion you were forced to observe, and why did you reject it?

Hey, CrystalRaven. I must say, you've chosen a GREAT place to start out at. I'm STILL fairly new to all this kind of stuff myself, but everyone here is SOOO nice and so helpful, you should have no problem starting out. Welcome to MW and visit often.
