My name is Gem and I am a 33 year-old mother of two very wild young girls. Currently I reside in Florida but I’ve lived and traveled different parts of the world. I discovered Spells8 by mistake. I’ve been on self discovery journey this last few months and I’ve always been drawn to divination so I decided to start researching paganism and Wicca. If I am being honest, they’re both hefty topics and are slightly overwhelming. When I found Spells8, I was looking at how to make different spell jars. I’m hoping joining this site/app will allow me to have kind of like a coven and also learn in a more guided atmosphere. In short, hi—I am new. Please help. Lol
Hi Gem! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum!
Information overload is a thing. Sounds like you have it! LOL. The best way to start is with the courses, specifically the Wicca Self-Initiation Course. It will start you out slowly and you’ll be able to decide if this is the right path for you, and then you can go through the others however you want to.
There are also many recipes for spell jars on-site, so you’re in luck with that. Plus you’ll be able to create your own once you get more comfortable here. But @SilverBear is the go-to for Spell Jars, she’s the Queen of them! LOL.
If you have any questions just ask and someone will pop up and help you out. I look forward to getting to know you better!

Merry Meet and Welcome @EternalIndigo! I’m Jessica from Houston, TX. I am an eclectic witch that follows Druidic/green witch practices and works with Greek deities (surprising me since I’m Irish). I practice tarot and am venturing into rune casting. I have and am working to develop further my clair senses: clairaudience (clear hearing), clairsentience (clear feelings)/ empath, and claircognizance (clear knowing).
As mentioned already, the courses offered here are a great place to start. The forum is also really helpful - it is full of amazing people that are always willing to help. I also recommend the Daily Ritual and Lunar Spell as simple ways to start incorporating the practice into your daily life. They are usually simple meditations, chants, tea spells, etc. that do not take a lot of knowledge to complete. The rituals/spells are well written so you will know exactly what to do.

Welcome to the forum- I’m so glad you followed your heart and found your way here! It is a pleasure to meet you
I know there is a lot of content and it can be overwhelming! A good place to find your bearings each week is by checking the weekly Merry Meet Monday News Post- it has all current events, holidays, and other happenings going on this week. It is a good place to start!
When it comes to having a coven, this is a wonderful place to be amongst fellow magick-lovers I think there are many benefits to being part of an online coven, and one of them is that there is almost always someone on hand to answer questions or chat about witchy things- no matter where in the world you are! So if you do have any questions, feel free to share them in the Q&A Category- someone is sure to help you out!
Looking forward to talking with you more soon- Blessed be, Gem!
