Magic is something which has been present within society over the centuries.
Although it was driven underground by monotheistic religions and then explained away with science we find ourselves turning back to it in the modern day remove magic.
With the desire to return to more of our roots and reconnect with the Earth.
Things have however moved forwards away from sacrifices and what would would be considered black magic and progressed into more socially acceptable practices such as Wicca. Where it may be quite fashionable to play at being a witch with things such as love spells as a young teenager, many adults find methods such as tarot are easily integrated into their daily lives.
Simple spells and rituals and perhaps the odd potion for the hedge witch become normal practise and may help people achieve their goals. With magic and witchcraft still being rather underground it isn’t something you can learn from family and friends. There are however specialised websites which aid and guide you through the beginnings.
You will be pleased to find that your magic and spells can often be performed with easy to find objects and tools. Although the grander tools such as wands and crystal balls can and are used they’re far from essential. Candles, incense, gemstones and even silk clothes are all relatively easy to get hold of. It should however be remembered that in a lot of spells the materials used are destroyed. For example, a spell where by you wish to bind or remove someone may result in burning some paper and ribbon.
Once you have settled into the concepts and feel of things a little more you could find yourself trying things such as tarot. Tarot as with the runes are old forms of divination and a common part of witchcraft. They can be used purely for divining or integrated into your spells and rituals to add something more to them. There are many different styles and decks widely available.
Magic is however something which shouldn’t be taken as lightly as modern media would sometimes portray. It is something which should be learned thoroughly as any other craft. You may well find that as you step into the wondrous world of magic and get into the flow of casting spells and performing small rituals that entities become more present within your life.
These can be helpful as guides which aid you on your path towards wicca or just aid you with your spells. They can however be far more negative and harmful.
These entities are again things which have been present throughout history and go hand in hand with magic. With the use of magic comes the opening of higher senses which allow you to feel and access these entities. The careful study of your new craft will become essential as you delve deeper into the new world you will discover. You will find that things such as love spells are no longer as important and give way to more serious protection rituals and ceremonies. You may even find yourself approached by a god or two.
