As a new witch and/or Pagan, there is a lot of information to sort through. So many people, books, and websites offering helpful advice, telling you how to do this, how to do that, everybody saying what you should do, but what about all of the things that you should not do? In no particular order, here is a list of 7 things to utterly avoid doing when you’re new to witchcraft and/or Paganism.

As I have searched many paths in my search for me, I find this to be sound advice for any of them. Thank You Lady Althaea!

It has taken me 70 years to realise that the path for me is the solitary witch. I found the solitude is within me at my heart level, and when I need company I find it in abundance in the outdoors. Every animal that crosses my path is my friend and there is always a crow watching me.

My own recent adventures living rather isolatedly in the mountains of New Mexico has shown me that solitude is truly precious and has so much to offer.

Hi Althaea! Ive been reading your posts for awhile now and I find them to be very helpful. Ive been studying witchcraft for over a year now but i feel my studying has only gotten serious in the last few months, which is when i started reading your stuff. too much new age watered down fluff all over the place, so your blog is a welcome fresh perspective. As Im reading this post and another about dedications, Ive come up with a very concerning and stressful question. I was raised in a christian home, and thus prayed the “prayer of salvation” (multiple times actually, as i wasnt “changing” and felt the previous ones must not have been legitimate. obviously it was just the religion not working for me or providing me with what i needed spiritually). now i think the prayer of salvation could very well be considered a dedication. you tell jesus that you know youre a sinner and you want his gift of everlasting life and for him to live inside of you, and you declare yourself his servant for life. i would really hate to find out that im stuck with the holy ghost of the christian trinity living inside of me and im expected to obey the bible or go to hell. is there anyway out of this? does it matter at all that the dedications were made out of fear of hell and under the assumption that the only options were god or hell? or that my first dedication was when i was 7 and the final one when i was 16, all of them made as a child who wasnt given other options? thanks.
