Does anyone know if there is a teenage wiccan coven in PA.? Topic: Harrisburg pa papers
May 22, 2019 / By Divina
Question: Im from the Harrisburg area, and im wondering if there are any covens near me that are teenage friendly. Iv found quite a few adult covens, which only allow adults. But is there any teenage coven? Its not like my parents would start drama. Its just that when they found out they laughed and told me my relgion was fake. So i know that they wouldnt sign any papers to let me be in a "adult" coven. But i know they wouldnt bother starting drama.

Did you look here, yet: http://www.witchvox.com/vn/hm/uspa.html That being said, I'm sure you can find a group of teenagers calling themselves a coven. Now, as to whether or not those teenagers practice anything that reasonable people would recognize as Wicca, that's another question. A good coven has at least one person in it that knows what they are talking about, and good luck finding a "teenage coven" with that...it's possible, mind, but improbable. Many legitimate covens welcome teenagers with explicit parental permission. No one wants to be at the center of drama when a kid decides to dabble with another religion to piss off their parents, or the like, so I'm sure you understand why people are trying to be reasonable...many of us have dealt with unreasonable teens, and as a result would rather wait than face that again. Edit: Just because *your* parents would not start drama does not mean *other people's* parents would not. Why should a coven have to evaluate your PARENTS, too?

In traditional lore, covens often consisted of 13 members. Some claim that this was reflective of Jesus and his 12 disciples. However, modern Wiccans have created covens with as few as 3 members. I would suggest you find a Wiccan support group in your area. If none exists close by, do some searches for the online communities that exist to support other Wiccans. I know of individual witches who have created long distance covens, initially communicating via hand written letters and now electronically. They agree to practice their craft at appointed hours to assist and support the efforts of the others, perhaps even many miles away. They are together in spirit rather than in the same physical space. Blessed Be!

Well theoretically as has been said covens tend to have traditionally up to 13 members. however thesedays they can be much larger or much smaller, so yes techically two people could form a coven quite happily. Things don't tend to function quite in the same manner with such a small number of peole. Personally I'd advise newcomers who wish to participate in covens to join well established ones with more experienced members first before staring their own- but it's totally up to you what you both wish to do at the end of the day. Just study all you can and you'll do fine! Tip also, you interchanagbly mention wicca and witchcraft: you are probably aware of this any way, but they are two seperate things entirely. one is a faith one is a practice, many newcomers get that one confused when searching for information. Good luck and all the best on your path : )

You could be a coven... a really small coven... you just couldn't claim lineage to any specific trad. Honestly I think covens are best left to be founded by people with experience... someone who can guide and instruct those who are inexperienced. You don't need to be a coven to practice Wicca together or learn together. But if you really want to begin your own coven, starting with just the two of you, no one can really stop you.
Carita Originally Answered: Could you be a coven with 2 witches?
Aboslutely! There is no set limit for the amount of witches in a coven. I myself have a coven with only one other girl. I suggest you research the meaning of covens, how they work, what you can do in them, and how to begin one effectively. PS: If you're casting a circle outside, bring a bug repellant ring! It's like an inscense, but it burns repellant...keeps the bugs away. I HIGHLY recommend it, from personal experience.

Carita Originally Answered: How do you become a wiccan?
You have a long way to go before you can become Wicca, first of all you need to study a lot, Wicca is oath-bound so without a teacher you will not be able to learn everything about Wicca, however you will be able to learn a lot about Wicca and information you will need when you become Wicca – for example Golden Dawn, herb lore, meditation, and Paganism. There is a lot of misinformation surrounding Wicca, many say this is a way to determine those serious about Wicca from those who simply wish to become Wicca for fad value, either way you need to know enough to be able to tell fact from fantasy when it comes to Wicca – remember just because someone says they are Wicca does not make it so. You need to be able to take information with a pinch of salt and keep an open mind; a lot of people will take on misinformation and simply be unwilling to step out of that comfort zone to study Wicca any further so refuse to learn what Wicca is, instead believing Wicca is as they have been misinformed, you need to avoid falling into this trap. Some reliable books; The Witches' Bible: The Complete Witches' Handbook - Janet & Stewart Farrar. The Witches' God - Janet and Stewart Farrar The Witches' Goddess - Janet and Stewart Farrar The Triumph of the Moon: A History of Modern Pagan Witchcraft - Ronald Hutton. Witchcraft Today - Gerald B. Gardner. Witchdom of the True - Edred Thorsson Wicca: the Old Religion in the New Milennium - Vivianne Crowley Advanced Wiccan Spirituality - Kevin Saunders The Elements of Ritual: Air, Fire, Water & Earth in the Wiccan Circle - Deborah Lipp What Witches Do - Stewart Farrar There are writers best avoided, however most books will have some useful information even if they do not give accurate information on Wicca, for example Cunningham is a wonderful writer, his books on herb lore are particularly good, however what he writes about is Neo-wicca passed off as Wicca, not Wicca, the same is true of many writers such as Buckland. There are far more questionable writers, for example Ravenwolf, Tatiana and Horne, who really cash-in on the Wicca fad and often give highly questionable advice and information, for example Ravenwolf is very anti-Christian, and this is not something Wicca embrace. Generally a few things to watch out for are people claiming to be 'solitary Wicca' or 'Eclectic Wicca', sites or books that contain spells, people who use the spelling 'Magick' when not involved with ceremonial magic or numerology, any web site or person who offers to teach you about Wicca for payment, anyone willing to initiate you if you are under the age of 18 years old. There are plenty of web sites, again there is a lot of misinformation but there are reliable web sites such as StarFire Rising, the best option when it comes to research online is not to do wide searches on anything unless you know particularly what information you are looking for, also join a good forum for Wicca or Pagans. Amber & Jet are the best online group to join, these are Wicca-specific so you can be sure if there is any misinformation posted on their group they will correct it, I advise you join just to look through the discussions and once you feel you are ready start to ask your own questions, because they are Wicca they can sometimes be a little blunt with people who are looking to become Wicca for fad value so you do need to be careful what you say and show you are willing to learn about what Wicca really is about. http://amberandjet.spiralpaths.org - Amber & Jet Some reliable Wicca web sites; http://www.cyprian.org/Articles/gardchro... - Gardnerian Chronology and Bibliography http://www.wargoddess.net/index.php - Enyo`s Workshop http://wicca.timerift.net/ - Wicca: For the Rest of Us http://www.homecircle.info - Homecircle http://www.starkindler.org/ - StarFire Rising http://www.asiya.org/ - Asiya`s Shadows http://www.whywiccanssuck.com - Why Wiccans Suck http://www.newwiccanchurch.net - New Wiccan Church International http://members.tripod.com/~Moonpfyr/gardnerian.html - Gardnerian Tradition I recommend you read the New Wiccan Church International's advice to Seekers, Seekers are people who are 'Seeking' a coven to join in order to become Wicca, so generally people who are wishing to become Wicca. When you are ready it is then time to find a coven, many covens keep themselves to themselves either because they are not looking for new initiates or because they get tired of people asking them to take them into their coven. Wicca do however tend to keep a foot in the door when it comes to local pagan communities so moots are good places to start, it also gives you a feel for any problems locally such as false covens. You can look on the likes of Witchvox for public circles and covens, however just because someone claims to be Wicca does not make it so – I have honestly known someone who was within a coven for many years before she found out they were not actually Wicca. You need to have the ability to tell the difference between Wicca, Neo-wicca, Pagan, Fluffy bunny and outright wrong, when you know that then usually you can find a coven far easier. Some people do find that there are no covens I their area, if that is the case for you then you need to make a decision as to whether you want to try looking elsewhere for a coven, or convert to something like Neo-wicca or go into wider Paganism. As for meditation, try looking in your local library for books specifically on meditation, most libraries have meditations and will guide you from easier to more advanced meditation techniques. Don't be scared to look at the likes of New Age or Christian meditations, some are religion-specific but most are not, or can be altered for your use and often far easier to get a hold of – bare in mind as Wicca is oath-bound chances of finding Wicca specific meditations past very basic things are slim, you may however want to look into higher forms of magic, ceremonial magic or specifically qabalah as a source of learning and finding meditation ideas as these will pop up in Wicca from their influences on the religion. You can also look online, of course there will be web sites that are pure nonsense, but I'm sure you will find meditation ideas that will suit you and your level of meditation.

Anyone can be Wiccan, it's simply another form of Spirituality, however many followers of Wicca do have a sense of feeling drawn to it, or being 'special'. However, Wicca is not simply spells and magick, it is a spirituality, and one which encourages constant learning and studying. It's not a faith where you just sit back and listen to others, and one where you are an active member in your exploration and growth. You can dedicate yourself to Wicca whenever you like, or whenever it feels right (follow your intuition, you have it for a reason) but do remember to study, learn and gain information from a variety of people. Perhaps consider joining a study circle, or a group or coven that can help you prepare for your journey ahead? If you are a solitary, than read, practice, think, read, and experience the divine in Nature all around you. Practice meditating, hold a small ritual, attune to the cycles of the Earth. You'll soon find that spells and magic play only a small part in Paganism, and learning to live with the Earth, rather than simply on it, will play a larger role in your growth and development than a little cord or candle magick ;) Good luck in your journey ahead, and I hope this helps you! Love, Light and Laughter!

It is in your very being.. There are some ritual guidelines in many of the books out there.. introduction is the one I'm referring to.. dedication. Scott Cunningham's books are easily followed, for beginners, etc. The Truth About Witchcraft Today Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner Living Wicca: A Further Guide for the Solitary Practitioner In his books he has the ritual I'm speaking of.. I know there are many other books out there, some of which are good, some not.. I trust the words of Scott Cunningham.. Check into the self dedication - introduction.. also, I suppose you can seek out http://susunweed.com Covens.. are not something I ever cared for.. though friends and I have gotten together from time to time.. I preferred to stay by myself, and family..and those I taught. May your journey take you to the truth.. and may you enjoy the journey as much as finding the truth..
