Can a mortal become a witch if they study witchcraft and believe in it?

Merry Meet Seeker!

The answer to your question is a very simple ‘Yes!’ Any mortal can become a Witch is they have the Belief and the Knowledge. These two aspects of Witchcraft lie are the very essence of the Craft and I am very glad that you identified them so accurately. From your question, I gather that you are interested in pursuing the study of Witchcraft and living the life of a Witch. Please allow me this opportunity to point you in the right direction.

There are essentially only two things you will need to do to:

First: Study the various aspects of the Craft. These include the theology, the principles and the traditions.

Second: Live what you have learnt.

We are very fortunate today as there are many resources at hand to help a Seeker find their way in Witchcraft. There is a multitude of books, internet sites and courses available.

Here are some that you may want to have a look at:


Wicca: A guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham ISBN 0-87542-118-0.

Solitary Witch by Silver Ravenwolf ISBN 0-7387-0319-2

Internet sites


The Celtic Connection:

As an alternative, you may want to attend one of my courses. It is entirely up to you!

One of the things that you will have to decide on after having studied for a while is whether to join a coven or whether to practice as a Solitary. A large number of witches practice the Craft on their own for a variety of reasons. These include not knowing other witches, not comfortable working in a group, being too far away from other witches to participate in coven meetings and so forth. Never feel pressured to join a coven and take your time to make a decision on how you want to practice the Craft. Also, question all you have learnt. Test it! In the Craft it is encouraged of witches to think!

May your Path be illuminated by Love and Light, dear Seeker. And may you find all that you are looking for.

Blessed Be!
