Newbie from the Netherlands

I’m new to Spells8 and to all things Wiccan/Witchcraft.

Very curious and eager to learn.
I’m sure I will have a very good time here!

Welcome Martine!

I am Maureen from Ottawa Canada. 51. I have been around Wicca and witchcraft all my life I have only been specifically on the path for a bout a year. Spells8 has really helped me stay on the path and not veer off in fear of the unknown.

I hope you have a wonderful time on the site. There is lots to learn in the forum and in the courses. Looking forward to seeing you are the forum.



Thank you, Maureen :heart:


Hi @martine! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia here in the States. Welcome to the forum! :infinite_roots:

It’s great to have you here! I always like to get to know about people’s magic from other countries. It’s interesting. Have you found the Courses yet? Since you’re new that might be a good place to start.

If you have any questions, just ask and someone will pop up and help you. I look forward to chatting with you more!


Hi Amethyst!

Thank you for your welcome.
As soon I get home from work I will start the Wicca Self-Initiation.
Looking forward to it!

Welcome, @martine! :sparkles:

I look forward to getting to know you more in the forums!


Welcome Martine! You live in my favorite country! I lived in Woudenberg in my childhood. What a lovely place. I miss it sooooo much! So glad you’re here!


Coolness! I wish you luck on your journey!


@martine It’s nice to meet you! I am Heather, 41 and live in California. I am new to Spells8 as well. I’ve been an open witch for over 10 years though. Honestly, way longer than that, I just didn’t really know what to call my beliefs :slight_smile: Hopefully we both find new information and friends!

Heather :slight_smile:


Welcome Martine! I’m Scott, from Pennsylvania, USA. I too am relatively new to the Craft. I’m 61, and felt the calling last Mabon (Autumn). I did my self dedication ceremony last month, a truly magickal experience! You will find many helpful Witches in our Forum! I wish you the best in your magickal endeavor!


Hello to you too, @heather79! :blush:

Make yourself at home here- I hope you’re been finding everything you’ve been looking for! :books::heart:

Blessed Be :sparkles:


Thank you, Megan!
I’m a still looking around.
A little while ago I stumbled upon an book in Dutch from a Dutch witch Lunadea. I started reading this believing this book came on my path for a reason. An everything fell into place.
But if I have to say 1 thing I would like to learn more about: I would really like to trust in my intuition more, my inner witch so to speak :smile:


Thank you, I live in the province of Groningen. Not quite near Woudenberg, but my aunt and uncle used to live in Amersfoort. So that’s quite close. Wonderful to meet you!


@heather79 Thank you, nice to meet you too! I think we’ll both fine here with the information and friends. :wink:


@TheTravelWitch_Bry Thank you! Gosh so many kind words. The overall feel of this forum is wonderful and I feel rigt at home!


You’re very welcome! I’d say that book fell into your lap for a reason, you’re right! Learning to trust your intuition can be very difficult. I often struggle with it myself, though I often get blocked off because of stress and my own mental health. I’m sure over time you will learn to trust your intuition, too!


Hooray! I’m really happy you think so, @martine :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Welcome home! :heart:
