If I don’t believe I have power, can I still be a Witch?

Can i become a witch if i am a teen and think i dont have any powers?

My first words of advise are to tell you parents. I never suggest hiding anything from your parents. You must be prepared for the fact that they will probably have issues with your choice. It sounds like you anticipate this hurdle when you talk with them. One of the first things you need to know if that individuals under the age of 18 do not have the legal right to make decisions to pursue any religion other than their parent s religious pursuits. Wiccan covens usually insist on written permission from a parent or guardian to allow someone under 18 to be involved with them. 

Keep in mind that your parents are concerned about your well being and misinformation or lack of information will probably lead them to overreact. Start by asking your parents what they think about Wiccan. You might watch Sabrina or Charmed on TV. They don t reflect actual beliefs, but discussing them can help you begin to understand their thoughts. The book Where to Park Your Broomstick by Lauren Manoy has a section for parents who learned their children are interested in Wicca. There are also many online forums where you can talk to other teens.

Also, be careful when getting involved with a new group of people. This is true in any situation. Do not give out your personal information right away. Always meet for the first time in a public place. You should have a chance to get to know the members of a coven, their beliefs and thoughts before committing yourself. If you are pressured or feel uncomfortable, keep looking for a coven where you feel that you belong. Just because a group say they are Wiccan and welcome you, that doesn t mean they are who they claim to be. Its better to take your time and be sure you are among friends.
