I am just starting and don't know anything but I'm looking for a teacher and help to learn.

Welcome, Jeannette. It's not clear from your post as to whether you're simply interested in talking with just other women or are under the impression that Wicca is a women's-only or matriarchal religion. Wicca isn't gender-specific, there are many Wiccans who are male (not the least of which, the founder). :)

I'm just pointing this out because there are witchcraft traditions that are matriarchal/matrifocal and/or women only, in case that's what you're intersted in. Notably some forms of Dianic witchcraft (other forms are not women only).

I am a solitary for almost 40 yrs. Am recently retired and now feel the need to reach  out to my wiccan sisters for an exchange  of thoughts and ideas about our practice and rituals, I am thrilled to see so many young people following our path, but would love to talk to others who have practiced solitary for many years. I am also of Cherokee decent and find many similarities in my tribal and wiccan beliefs.

Yay howdy everybody.

That would be me too Quillpen... though more the mother just barely breaching the empty nest syndrome level at this time. I generally go with spiritual rather than pagan though and it seems to be accepted. I've come to a point that I don't need the full ritual circle unless I'm trying to do something serious and deep, hard core healing, cleansing, whatever... or tools dedications which I'm due to work on again soon... hmm... Anyway, welcome back. ;)

Blessings.  I haven't been on here in a while. Life interferes!!  Also some of the groups I joined seem to become populated with mostly the younger crowd or with the college educated debater types, and I don't fit in.  Retired - solitaire, with a path that is interwoven as I learn and find what works for me. Most of the people I am around are christian and would not accept my path, so I am quiet around them.  They do seem to accept the term "Natural ' Native American type beliefs which is part of mine. I personally don't feel that lots of fancy things are needed, that  your power is within. Being a visual person - seeing things makes it "there" but I don't have to go into the extravagant flourishes. Simple candles, a glass - although my dear husband did get me a goblet for weddings/ handfastings as I am a licensed officiant.  So maybe for those who worry because they have to "stay in the closet", find simple everyday things that you can bless and make special and that you will feel comfortable having out when others are around. If it's rituals - I go on my patio when I can, but sometimes I do the whole ritual in my head. I close my eyes, cast my circle, light candles, etc. all within my mind - picturing each and every step, and I believe more of your energy and power is channeled into your ritual this way than if you are using your energy to physically accomplish each step.   Find what works for you and believe in yourself.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes and support. I have enjoyed being solitary in my devotions, but I would enjoy interaction with others, especially around the Sabbats.

Religion and politics, regardless of one's affiliations, are topics that are not always necessary to divulge even when they're deemed common or mainstream. Some people want to shout from the rooftops and make obvious displays of what they practice, often when they're new and excited by it all. (though I'm *NOT* saying that's the case here.) When in doubt, simply do what seems to make the most sense for your given situation.

Greetings Rise St Arno. Sorry that you have to practice in the broom closet. I can't begin to imagine how that would be. I'm in California and have been practicing for years. Feel free to friend me if you would like to have someone to be yourself with. I enjoy sharing.

Merry meet!
I've been Wiccan for many years, I'm 63 and now live in a very small town in conservative part of Florida. After spending a goodly portion of my life in very open minded communities this is a huge adjustment. I live here to be close to my daughter and granddaughter and coming out of the broom closet would be very harmful to them.
I'm looking for support and friendship and encouragement...
Blessed Be )O(
