My parents have like, no extra money & I have NO Wiccan Supplies.
I was wondering if there’s different options that require little to no money.
P.S. I’m 17 and a beginning Eclectic Wiccan, not like that helps answer my question…
OhMGee, you people suck !
I can’t believe the responses I’m getting.
I DON’T BELIEVE IN CHRISTIANITY AND NOTHING YOU TELL ME WILL CHANGE THAT! SO STOP TELLING ME TO TURN TO GOD AND ALL THAT CRAP!
Yeah, idiot, I’m doing this to be cool!
Are you dumb?!
This is the path I feel was chosen for me.
It has NOTHING to do with being cool.
Half of my friends and family no NOTHING about this.
I haven’t came out of the ‘broom closet’ yet.
… OMG people are so dumb…!
I’m not Wiccan, but I am a poor college Pagan and have perfectly cool rituals using random things I keep in my home. For Beltaine, my friend and I just grabbed some ale, apples, honey, candles, incense and tiny candies and ended up with a full day ritual. Wicca is known for being highly ritualized, much like Catholicism, when it isn’t always necessary. I think generally the most important part of any religion is to acknowledge your deity/ies and to give them some sort of offering. Deities get that you may be terribly poor and generally appreciate that you took the time to do something for them.
If you’re REALLY big on supplies, you can get affect yet impoverish supplies scamming from your parents’ kitchen (a cup or fancier candle holder for a chalice, steak or butter knife for an athame, lighters/matches, herbs or kidnapping old flowers your dad got your mom and she threw out when they got old) outside (herbs, wands from twigs, stones etc), thrift stores, dollar stores, grocery stores and wal-mart (they actually have a lot of cheap incense and oils in their craft and home goods-candle section).
If you can afford a book, "The Urban Primitive" is a book that outlines what my friends and I call "Hobo Magik". It specifically cites ways that you can do pretty much anything you could ever want without spending a dime (for example, to get flower petals go a florist’s dumpster, using broken bottles and stones to represent the elements or protect your car with a dragon spirit) and if you do have a small bit of money, it gives cheap alternatives to a lot of expensive things. It’s definitely worth it if you want to use a lot of magik and spend as little as humanly possible.
