The Wiccan religion believes that all things in nature including ourselves are sacred and have magickal properties. The rituals and ceremonies in this religion focus on using objects from the earth such as stones, sticks, crystals and herbs. Some of these items are used in the altar and "charged" with positive energy believed to protect the person holding it or wearing it.

Most jewelry used by followers of this religion are objects that promote healing and spiritual completeness. It can also be a symbol of of transformation and appreciation of the Wiccan beliefs and traditions. The pentagram in a circle is the most recognizable symbol in the Wicca culture and it symbolizes the integration of the physical and spirit worlds.

Due to the aggressive nature of the organized religions, the Wicca or other pagan religions sometimes had to resort to secrecy in their daily lives, wearing symbols that are sacred to them mysteriously disguised as flowers or other intricate designs on pendants, bracelets, etc. Sometimes the jewelry may be in the shape of weapons such as the Athame, Sword or Thor's hammer to signify protection for the wearer.

The planets, the Sun and the Moon are also very important for Wiccans. As a result, moon shaped pendants, earrings, rings and amulets are very commonly used. Sometimes the combination of the new moon and full moon is worn to represent the Horned God, who represents the masculine polarity of the Universe. Also, the three phases of the moon, waxing, waning or full are used in several designs to revere the Lunar Triple Goddess.

Egyptian Hieroglyphs are also used in designs such as a circle with extensions for the cow goddess Hathor, who represents feminine centered Pagans. Other symbols that are used in Wiccan Jewelry are the Wheel of the Year with eight spokes and the Witch's sign, which is used to mark ritual tools.

The emblem of Seax-Wicca which symbolizes the sun, moon and the eight holy days and Hecate's wheel, an ancient Greek symbol also is used by certain practitioners of the religion. The seven pointed Elven Star is also used by followers of Celtic style Faery Wicca.

Asatru symbols as well as symbols from African and Native American cultures as well as ancient Hindu and Greek symbols are also used in Wiccan jewelry. Other themes for jewelry are female deities, male deities, Stonehenge, witches and wizards, Tree of life, Gothic Cross, Dragon and Fairy designs, Viking Axes and Shields, Viking Ships, Runic Horses, Bat wings, Tetragrammaton, Triquetra, Chakra wheels, Ravens, and Cat symbols.

Tarot card designs such as the Moon, the Sun, The Star and the World as well as the signs of the Zodiac (Aquarius, Taurus, Gemini, etc.), are very popular when used in traditional Wiccan jewelry.

It's never too early to start practicing Wicca! There are a lot of resources out there for the burgeoning teen witch. Lots of the books on Wicca that are available are appropriate for a new witch, but it's important to remember that no one author knows all the answers. Therefore, it's important, especially when you're just starting out, to think critically about everything you read. Not everyone is honest, especially if you decide to use the Internet to help your search, and some people prey specifically on questioning teenagers.

Then there's dealing with your parents, who may disapprove of your spiritual choices. First, remember that your parents have the law on their side, so do your best to work within their wants. Minors are effectively second class citizens, so your parents really are the ones with the power!

If you want to pursue a discussion with your disapproving parents about Wicca, try and figure out why your parents are opposed to your interest in witchcraft. Is it because they practice a religion that disagrees with Wiccan practices? Is it because they don't really know what Wicca is about? Maybe they have some ideas about Wicca that aren't true; for example they may be likening it to Satanism, and therefore might be worried for your safety.

If the issue is misconceptions about Wicca, then you have a chance at opening a dialogue with them. You can try and educate them, sharing your adventures into Wicca with them. It might help, for example, to show them some of the books and websites you've read or are reading. If you have Wiccan friends who are good people, you might introduce them, so that your parents can see that the majority of those who follow Wicca are healthy people who don't sacrifice goats in their spare time! If you choose the education route, make sure that you are well read and have done your research. After all, you will have to be able to support your beliefs, not only through emotion but through logic and the strength of your sources. Remember that your parents care about you, and only want you to be happy and safe. If you can prove to them that Wicca is not a threat to either your happiness or your safety, then you're well on your way to bringing them around to your side.

Just remember, there is no "rule" that you absolutely have to tell anyone that you are a practicing Wiccan.

Here are six basic spells to get you started! A rite of purification is an important thing to know, as you can use it to purify your altar and your magical tools. Some purification rituals even work on your body; Isis, for example, is pleased by cleanliness and looks favorably on ritual baths.

One of the most basic elements of purification rites and spells in general is the casting of a protective circle before beginning the casting itself. My favorite way of doing this is to take my athame (ritual blade) and imagine a blue-white light emanating from its tip. I then use it to describe the boundaries of the circle, turning with it as though I were actually drawing in the air. Ask your patron spirits to ward off all evil and negativity while you are casting your spells. You may also want to call the elements as part of your circle casting, which can be as simple as asking representatives of earth, air, fire and water (or whatever elements you are attuned to) to watch over you as you work. They may even aid your magic!

As mentioned above, another type of purification is purification of the self. To prepare a ritual bath, perform the following: (here we call upon Isis as She responds particularly well to ritual baths, but if you feel moved to complete this rite for your deity, insert Their names and traditions where appropriate) gather salt, which can be table, sea, or earth salts. Ask Isis to bless the substance with a simple invocation of Her power. This can be as simple as "Mother Isis, please bless this substance and make it pure." As you complete this and the rest of your preparations, take your time and do your best to cultivate a meditative state of mind.

Once the salt has been blessed, do the same for the water. Take herbs that are sacred to Her or are special to you and boil them as you would a tea. Strain the liquid into your bathwater, preferably calling upon Isis to purify you with this combination of herbs and consecrated water. Step into your bath and submerge as much of your body as you can. Remain in the bath as long as you can, as a purification bath should not be rushed. Afterwards, it is appropriate to oil or honey your skin; L'occitane's Honey Bath Gel is particularly good for this.
