the first pagan/wiccian book I ever read/owned was about 16 -17 years ago and it was bucklands..oh you all know what its called..the big blue one..lol
Oh I cant think of it tonight, I just quit smoking, my brain is not working..but its the really famous one..
Then I went buddhist for many years and I could give you tons in that area to read, but when i came back to wicca and choose to combine buddhism with wicca alot of what I learned was by heart/instinct and then just hanging out with alot of other wiccians and being in a coven..
I do think alot of my friends love starhawk though, they always swear by her..
There are alot of books that maybe arnt *wiccian* per say but are great spiritual books, I am gonna list a few just off the top of my head
actually a favorite wiccian book that is not about wicca and is fiction but I loved is the mists of avalon..
ahh I love that book
but ok non fiction..
Awakening to the sacred
Lama Durya Das
Awakening to the buddha within
(not really a spiritual book per say but a very cool book that deals with alot of alternative religons of the east and India )
I even read care of the soul by the ex catholic priest..oh real famous guy..I liked his books though..interesting stuff
oh of course the tibetian book of the dead
OH I know there is like 50 more and I am sitting here drawing a big old blank..
For me personaly and some ppl agree and some disagree, just hanging out and talking with ppl who have been wiccian for awhile was my greatest help..
even if you have to find ppl online..
and no two wiccians I know do anything the same thing anyways, I have a friend who is new to wiccia and she is always asking me what to do for this or what to bring for this and I am like..it totally depends on which witch your listening too anyways, I may say one thing and 2 other women we know will say something else..lol
For me as far as learning to cast spells, bring stuff to ritual, how to do ritual, you can get online and get so many of the basics and just use your gut to find your way..that really honestly has always worked best for me..espically because I do tie so much of my eastern religon background into my beliefs now..
how I do ritual might make a flat out saxon wiccian very uncomfy and how they do stuff might make me uncomfy..
so experiment with differnet books, hit your library first and get a feel for the authors..alot of times they have whole series of books, see who you like and then kinda check out maybe their new releases in the book stores you know?
just dont be afraid to experiment..wicca in my opinion is a electic blend of many old pagan religons, its not one certian, ok this is exactly how this is gonna be done and dam you if you do it wrong..thing
its a blend of many ancients wisdoms and talents..from many many areas, all areas at one time were pagan, weither it was the middle east or ireland or americas or cuba or africa, and wicca is the racked up wisdom of so many many tribes..
so there is alot of info out there ! and reading through it is a lifetime adventure!
