Merry Meet from Ohio.
I am a Baby Witch. I’ve long been fascinated by Witchcraft and recently decided to begin my own journey with magick after discovering my grandmother’s own interests and dabblings in the occult.
I’ve read a few books on Wicca and I’ve found them very interesting. Working with the God & Goddess does appeal to me, but I’m struggling with the different pantheons and whether or not I personally identify with. I suppose those answers will come to me in time.
My struggle in getting started has been my concern for doing things “correctly”, but in reading the few posts I’ve read here already, my anxiety has been quelled and I’m going to be consecrating my tools and doing a bit of ritual work tonight. I’m comforted in success of others who’ve just done what feels right for them.
Merry meet @vida
Welcome to the forum- we are blessed to have you here!
So mote it be! I am wishing you all the best on your journey to connect with the divine, whichever deities or pantheons that might be. There’s actually a helpful guide about approaching deities- I will leave it here in case you want to take a look:
→ Approaching Deities - Reverence is Key
And I don’t know if tarot is one of your magickal interests, but just in case, there’s a fun tarot spread for helping you identify and connect with any deities who may be reaching out to you:
→ Who’s There? Deity Tarot Spread
Just a few resources you might consider- wishing you all the best in your work with the divine!
I am so happy to hear that you’ve felt comforted and encouraged by what you’ve seen in the forum- we are definitely a very “go get 'em!” kind of group when it comes to finding what works best for you!
You know you best- you are in the best position of anyone when it comes to finding and developing a magickal practice that feels right. That being said, you don’t have to do so alone! The coven is here for support and happy to help with questions, suggestions, or spellwork trouble-shooting Please don’t hesitate to reach out at any time!
Looking forward to talking with you more soon- Blessed be!
Hi @vida! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum!
If it makes you feel any better, while I work mainly with Apollo and Gaia from the Greek pantheon, I still don’t feel called yet after all these years. Take your time, it’s okay to pray to the Lord and the Lady without having a specific deity in mind. That’s what I think anyways.
If you still worry about making mistakes, check out the Courses. They might help you feel better. But really it’s all good. I get tongue-twisted some mornings when I’m doing my daily devotional and no lighting bolt has come after me yet!
If you have any questions just ask and someone will pop up to help you out. I look forward to chatting with you more!
