Welcome James! You came to the right place to learn! I am also a baby witch and there are many people here at different levels that can help you on your path. All you have to do is ask a question and you’ll receive many answers! Lol
But there are courses you can take to start off with and printable pages for your Book of Shadows. There’s so much information here!


Welcome! I am male, and I live in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. This coven is very accepting and open. Everyone here is super friendly and very helpful. If you have any questions just ask and someone will certainly help you.

Until then, check out the courses on the Spells8 site. There are tons of videos, spells, and all kinds of info. There are lots of online sources for tools and gear. Amazon will sell you just about anything, and surprisingly often has very good prices. Etsy is also a source, but comparison shop, sometimes they are just reselling for a profit. There are lots of sites that sell herbs and crystals as well.


Merry Meet @james11! I’m Siofra from Cape Cod. As a Beginner Witch, don’t burn yourself out trying to learn everything at once. You are going to want to follow up your learning with practice also. There’s time to learn everything though! I have learned so much in the last year & a half of being here.

I definitely second this statement! :raising_hand_woman: As soon as someone sees your question, they will get back to you & have an answer or can point you in the right direction. Everyone here is very friendly & supportive of each other’s unique paths.

I hope you are having a great start to the New Year! I look forward to chatting with you soon! :milky_way:

Hi @james11! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum!

This is a great place to meet people and to learn. Keep an eye out for tomorrow’s Merry Meet Monday post, it will let you know what’s going on in the coven and give you a chance to chat with others down in the comments.

Welcome to the forum- as you can probably already tell, we are a very open-minded group welcome to all! You are certainly not the only male coven member here, so please make yourself at home!

Have you found your way to the Spells8 Courses yet? If not, I highly recommend them! A great place to begin is with the Self-Initiation Course as it provides a very thorough overview and a great foundation to build your practice off of.

As you explore the forum and browse the course content on the site, please know that you can reach out here in the forum anytime if you have questions! You have many friendly fellow coven members happy to help.

Blessed be, James! :sparkles:
