Hopefully you'll have a book of shadows! They come by other names but, let's stick to basics!
Writing down your spells and magick in that can help you in the long run to create new things and new ways of getting whatever it is you're hoping for!
Also check out various on line websites or communities!
PsychicKnight I think will have witchcraft groups!

Just scour the internet looking for what you need! :)

Everything and nothing is impossible.

It makes sense both are what makes each other.

Find "The Natural Witch" by Ellen Dugan....it has been my best friend for a couple of years now. Easy read with great information. I think the world needs more solitary natural practitioners.

I would like to bring attention to the newest member of the endangered species list: Common Sense.

Just curious... Do you know what you are doing when you are spellcasting? Like if it calls for a certain color candle, why that color is used? Or if you are using an incense, why that one and not another? If you are using symbols, what the full meaning is of them?

There is a very real reason why they don't work.
If you believe in this so much then at some point you'll realize you don't need stage props, all you need is the ability to imagine that spells work. That's it.

Also..you cannot learn much after just 9 months. It takes far longer and you will never arrive at the point where you "know" it all. Even the most experienced still learn more and more.

if you really have the desire to learn and hear stories try and find an alternate belief shop near you that sells things like incense and pentagrams most of the time if you ask the owner they will talk to you about what they know, also you could try and find a pagan open meeting in your area (sometime called moots), thats what i did when i wanted to learn more.

I dont know how old you are,but im guessing,young.
My advice to you is,BE VERY CAREFUL .
Of what you are doing,and asking for with your spells. Magick is not a toy.It can have serious consequences,if used improperly.
It can attract bad spirits,which can lead to bad things occurring to you,or beings in your household.Possession,tragedies,and even death can occur,with energies that can be attracted using magick.
And someone with not a lot of experience ,or a way to protect yourself,is their favorite target.
Depending upon where you live,I would look for a way to learn,that is safe.I understand that this isn't always possible.
There are on line groups,but some of them are not very reputable.
I personally do not like working within a coven,but for a beginner,its a fail safe,so you do not get hurt.
If you are casting spells,what materials are you using,and where are you getting them ? As that might be a place to start.
And keep reading. The more knowledge you have,the better off you are,but again,please be careful.
And if your magick is not working,you are doing something wrong,or its not meant to be.
If you are doing love magick,its the hardest of all.
You cannot make Joe Schmoe love you ,because it interfere with free will.
Interfering with freewill,is,for the most part,considered black magick.
Be careful what you wish for .

Miss me?

Spells, Prayers, Curses... All are names to describe the same use of power throughout different cultures. There are a few interconnecting rules no matter the culture though: 1. The more you expect something to work the easier is will. 2. Workins for the good of others usually don't come with a price tag, those for your self- usually a small one, those to harm others (for whatever reason) usually have a steep price. 3. Prepare for unintended consequneces, w/e power causes prayers, spells...etc to work is little understood at best; and it is fairly easy to raise up problems that you can't put down.

Hi sweetie, it's great that you are asking questions; that in itself is a step in the right direction. I suggest books by Scott Cunningham and Raymond Buckland, to name just two. These men were both practicing Wiccans (albeit from different traditions; Scott was a solitary practitioner whereas Raymond learned the tradition practiced by his family).

The most important thing I can tell you, as one who once practiced Wicca, is to decide before you engage in any rituals or "spells," be sure that your intentions are pure and wholesome. Never, ever try to put a spell on another living being. For example, if you want a partner in your life, it's fine to do a ritual asking the deity you worship (or the universe, or whatever) to send love into your life. It is not, under any circumstances, appropriate to do so much as ask for the love of a particular person. The aim is never to control or influence other people; it is only to enrich your own life by creating positive intentions. You might ask what you can do to protect yourself, if you can't put curses on your enemies. In fact, you might ask why you can't curse someone who means you harm. The answer is that according to Wiccan belief, every action comes back to you multiplied by three; so if you curse someone, you are going to come to three times the harm as the person you cursed. But you can protect yourself; simply ask whatever power you honor to deflect any harm aimed at you, and to surround you with the white light of purity and protection.

Good luck, my dear...and keep asking questions!

All right, I see what's going on. This is the opening salvo in what will be an escalating series of juvenile tit for tat exchanges. Well titted! Stand by for my upcoming tat. --Dr. Sheldon Cooper

This is good advice. I met a dear friend of mine who is a high priestes and teaches a class on the subject this way. I was looking for a way to share my shamanic experiences with real people not just online. I ended up as a gust speaker and teacher at a few of her classes. Many times at these shops there will flyers or a mailing list for workshops and gatherings.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Great that you are studying Witchcraft and learning new things.  But why not try studying it a little longer before jumping in with spells?  There is so much more to Witchcraft than just spells.

I’m a Witch (not Wiccan) and I bet I was studying Witchcraft for at least 2 years before I did my first ritual (which was a self dedication to the Lord and Lady).  Even after years of being a Witch I still have so much to learn about it.  Having all the tools is great in the early days but as someone else mentioned, you will soon realise that tools are exactly what they are and you definitely don’t need them.

Like I said, I am not Wiccan so do not follow any rede.  There is no black magic or white magic, just magic and it is the intent of the Witch that determines the type of magic.

Feel free to message me if you have any specific questions.

I'm with Ryu. "Magic" works on intention, not candles, blades, etc. And no magic should be done that has an intention of influencing or affecting others. No power-over spell will work, nor should it be attempted. I suggest reading Starhawk's book, Spiral Dance."
