Yes, I remember. Let's not start spamming because I don't want this to be closed.

Wow, just today I was thinking about witchcraft... and now this! How perfect! I would like to join!

Well, I'd say I'm not completely Wiccan, but that does make up most of my religion. I know much of the main ideas of it, but not too much of the details (such as specific spells and such). In fact, I tend to make a lot of things up--besides, I go with the saying that "intent is more important than content".

I first heard about Wicca from my mom--she used to practice it too. I remember the days when I was in 5th grade and we did rituals together and everything... I miss those days--we don't do it anymore, and rather I do everything by myself. I'm also currently reading a book about it--a book that was recommended to me by a ghost, quite strangely... I was mainly drawn towards it because I love anything that deals with the supernatural. I also loved its connecton to nature and the elements.

I have two favorite spells I like to use. One was one I only had to use once, but it was a variation of a psychic shielding spell. I modified it to be like a flower that would close its petals should any negative thoughts be about, to release those through its stem, and to open the petals to let in the divine sunlight. Anyways, the other one I like to use is a protection spell. This one I almost completely invented--I just quickly cast a circle around something to protect it from theft and such. It works every time! The only times when something valuable is stolen from me are when I forget to do that spell...

Another thing that draws me towards Wicca is its history, sort of. I often consider it to be the "underdog" religion, especially since many of its symbols (such as the pentacle and the pitchfork) were originally good, peaceful symbols, but the Christians turned them into symbols of the devil. That upsets me, but that also makes things interesting to me... I tend to embrace the dark side of things, one characteristic that sets me apart from Wicca...

Yay! I made the longest post in Wiccan Alliance history!! XD

Same here. I tend to want to get into the darker side of things, including this religion, but I have no way of getting anything on it. Also, welcome to the club. It's so good that there are more people than ever getting into this religion. Those are some good spells. I'll try them out later today.

Well, the only spell-ish advice I can give you guys now is in regards to the rose. The rose, as some of you may know, is the symbol of divine and especially of the goddess. (Read the Da Vinci Code to gain more info on this.)

^^Well anyways, I always use rose petals in spells and rituals that involve connection to the divine. I occasionally put some on my altar to promote that connection. When I'm done with them, I release them into the wind to send the message of the divine to hearts everywhere. I also make a variation of holy water that uses rose petals instead of salt--it's more effective but slower to make (it takes three days of "brewing"). Also what I have done is stick a wand in the water and touch it in various places on my altar, as well as my heart and such. I then rub it on the inside of a coin purse, place a dry petal inside it, and seal the purse. This purse serves as a sort of amulet, perfect for remindance of our connection to the divine which is within all of us. (It can also serve as a "portable altar".)

That's a bit of my wisdom for today... May magic and the essence of the divine thrive within hearts everywhere. :)

Basically, you just collect a few rose petals--around 8 will do--and place them on your altar. Cast a circle around them, letting their energies fill the space. Leave this be for three days. After that, soak them in a cup of water, stirring them with a wand if you have one that works, or an incense stick if you don't. Leave this be for a day. The next day, dip your wand or whatever in the water, touch it in five spots on your altar (doesn't matter where), and on your third eye and heart. Finally, rub the wand dry on the inside of a coin purse. Place a dry rose petal inside the purse and close it. Start releasing the energies by closing the circle which contained the rose petal energies. Pour the water out outside, sending the message of the divine to hearts everywhere. With this step, the ritual is complete--use the purse as a charm or personal altar.

^^That was the shortest and simpest description I could give... Just remember that it is better to collect the petals off the ground than to pick them off the flower itself. Doing the latter is a gesture of upsetting the divine.

We use our hands to cast spells, but some of us might use wands. I'm not sure though.

Thank you for telling me. I was asking because I think I did my 1st spell today.

I don't know what traditions you all belong too, but isn't talking about what particular spells you've cast a bit taboo.

Merry we meet. I am Clockworkz, a rather well learned Wiccan, and I know much about the craft.
Articuno: Not at all. In fact, sometimes, it's encouraged to describe spells you've successfully cast, so newbies to the religion can get an idea, instead of improvising on the spot.
Mind if I start a topic?
What was your first Magickal experience?
For me, it was when I cast my first spell. My dad had a hip surgery, and three weeks later, he had to put in a new Front door to our house. He was hurting real bad the night before, so I lit a candle, centered, groudned, and cast a circle, and performed a healing spell for my dad, and so help me Gods, it worked. He felt great the next day. As for myself, I felt great. I had total faith that the spell would work, and felt so relieved once I saw the results :)
Blessed be!
 
You may join, Clockworkz. I'll add you to the list.

I've attempted a spell myself. It was a "Call Me" spell, yet, it didn't work. I don't have a book on Wicca, but I hope to get one sometime soon.

"Call me" as in a telephone?
Most spells that are supposed to influence the minds of others rarely work, as it's not really right or proper to do that without that person's consent >_>
Hat to say it, but your hopes of those spells working are minimal. I've had the most luck with healing and money spells, and other spells to help promote positive things within my own being.

Well, it is certainly taboo in a setting like this: an open internet forum. But by all means, do what you think is appropriate. I personally have a problem with things like that, but that's just me.
