I have be in to being a wicca forever how can I become one? Do I have to be into black and gloom?
Wicca has nothing to do with personal style or joining the Goth subculture ( a poll shows that actually 77% of Goths are Christian, least, then again that was years ago). Dress what feels natural to you. To become Wiccan study the subculture for a year and a day. Talk to other wiccans, religious scholars, RESEARCH it through bookS, reliable siteS(don't just talk to one person, or get one book or read just 1 site and believe you know it, that's not how research goes. Use multiple resources). Commit yourself to researching it. And if it seems like it's right for you then Commit your self to the religion I if you want, you can even funmail me(I'm a mystic, but I still know a lot about eh religion). Or look up Wicans on the site. Gaia3 I think her funadivce is, the seems to be a well informed Wican. Try asking her some qustions.
Wiccan is not an organized religion. If you want to be Wiccan, all you have to do is start referring to yourself as Wiccan. There is no central authority that grants you membership.
That said, if you want to practice it and not just label yourself, you should hook up with local groups. These are easily found by asking around at pagan religious supply shops and even head shops. You can also search 'meetup' for a local group.
Why on earth do you want to get into something without knowing what it is about? Read about Wicca and what it entails and then decide if you want to become Wiccan.
It has nothing to due with black and gloom.
Go purchase a book, read up on it and make sure it is actually something you believe in and want to follow.
embrace the goddess.
study for a year and a day
make sure its not a FAD
and it has NOTHING to do with gloom, ect.
no not really just drop your god that you already believed in, buy a book of shadows and a pentagram
