First of all, welcome! I’m so glad that you’ve chosen this path.
Now, you’ve decided to start practising witchcraft, but where on EARTH do you begin????? There are so many different routes to go down, it can feel a bit overwhelming at first. However, most people realise that they’ve actually been practising all their lives, and they’ve just never acknowledged it.
My advice is to start small. Find out who you are – ‘know thyself’ – which element do you relate to? How do you associate with the universe? Which craft feels the best for you? These answers will come in time, here are some links to get you going!
What are your hobbies? Are you a musician, or someone who regularly goes to the gym? Do you enjoy crafts and cooking? Do you connect more with humans or with animals?
Which element should you start to work with? Take this quiz to find out.
It’s always a good idea to find out your astrological birth chart too! (TW: there is a ‘birth name’ field on this form but if you aren’t comfy with this then that’s totally fine, it’s just so they can put a name on your report).
Find out if you can be put into a meditative state with these Spotify playlists, OR if you can meditate with your own certain music. (If you can, you might be a musical meditator!)
Luckily there are so many quizzes out there that can tell you what kind of witchcraft you resonate with, but I would advise to take these with a pinch of salt. A lot of these are either just for fun or inaccurate – basically do what feels right! You may find that you love candles, but not candle magic (ahem, same). This blog article of mine might spur you on a bit and hammers the point home, if I haven’t banged on about it enough. Pinterest can be an ally and an enemy, some spells are inaccurate and may just make you doubt your faith.
Remember: you do not have to fit into any box – this is what is so good about witchcraft, it’s for everyone! Read and speak to other witches and listen to podcasts, just keep learning and you’ll find your way!
