New to my path

Hello! My name is Courtney.
I have been trying to start my journey on this path for many years, but never had the courage. With this site it gives me more information than me just trying to do it on my own. I live in the middle of nowhere with no covens around me. I am glad to see that I’m not the only one who feels this way.
I can’t wait to see how I grow and bloom with this site and new friends I may make.


Hello @courtney27 Welcome to the community Courtney nice to meet you :smiling_face:


Welcome to the forum Courtney! :wave:

My name is Megan and I’m one of the moderators here on Spells8 :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: It’s nice to meet you!

Starting a journey such as witchcraft can be really difficult when you’re doing it alone, I relate! That’s one thing I love about the community here. There are so many of us from all different walks of life – so much to learn and see! You’re not alone here and I’m sure you’re going to make many new friends!

I can’t wait to watch you grow and blossom, too!


Welcome to the forum @courtney27! I’m Siofra_Strega, another moderator here in the forum. I live on Cape Cod & have very few in person witchy friends :thinking: I can only think of one really, but anyway! When I joined Spells8, it was a similar situation & I have found my way much easier with the help of the site & the forum!

Everyone here is very friendly & helpful, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask or share anything you may learn along the way with us! We love to learn new things & help each other on our paths. It’s a nice little family here!

I look forward to chatting with you & watching you grow as well! :infinite_roots:


Hi @courtney27! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum! :infinite_roots:

Congratulations on starting your path! You now have all the encouragement you need to be the witch you always wanted to be!

Have you found the Courses yet? They’re a great way to start learning here on the forum. There are also challenges and tea rituals, all sorts of things for you to join in.

If you have any questions, just ask and someone will pop up to help you out. I look forward to getting to know you!


Greetings @courtney27,

Don’t mind me jumping on the welcome wagon to say hello too! I’m Bry, another moderator here in the forum and an Eclectic Witch- it is a pleasure to meet you :blush:

I know it can be tough to get started on your own, but please know that you’re not really alone anymore- although we are a group of mostly solitary witches, together we make a coven- a coven that is here and happy to help support you however we can! :infinite_roots: :heart:

I’m really looking forward to watching you blossom on your magickal path as well- you’re already off to a wonderful start! :bouquet:

@courtney27 Hi I’m Christeena, and I’m 42, a mother of 2 adult sons. One is a paramedic/firefighter, and the other is a Marine. I live in a very very small town in Central North Carolina with my hubby of 21 yrs, our 2 dogs and 3 cats. I was raised Pentacostal and was always told that my gifts were evil, so they were suppressed til just a few yrs ago when i finally accepted all of myself. It has been an amazing journey with alot of bumps along the way. But it’s all worth it bc for the 1st time in 42 yrs i feel whole.

I have a HUGE affinity for herbs, I commune with spirits, and my guides. I’m a daughter of Hekate, The Morrigan, and Thor. I will help anyone, usually to my own detriment. But I’m still just gonna do me. If you ask me a question please be prepared for an honest answer. Sometimes brutally honest, as I am blunt. I don’t sugar coat things. Here you will find so many like minded brothers and sisters who will welcome and accept all of you with open arms without condescension. If you have questions all you have to do is ask. We are all here to help each other. You will find people from all walks of life and paths. Again, welcome!!!
