  1. answer: Not generally.

    1)Ignore the fundies saying you’ll go to hell and are opening yourself up to demons. They don’t believe in either.
    2)Get the book: Wicca, a Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham (Amazon.com used books is a great resource)
    3)Avoid Silver Ravenwolf, DJ Conway and most Llewellyn books
    4)Do NOT pay for lessons over the internet. You can’t ask for references. Do NOT give out personal information to anyone over the internet. Get a PO Box.
    5)www.witchvox.com http://wicca.timerift.net
    6)Learn and keep learning about various paths in paganism.
    7) get the book: “Drawing Down the Moon” by Margo Adler (an older book that’s a little dated, especially concerning Asatru but a good resource) – it gives an overview on a lot of pagan traditions.

  2. Mostly not. But there are some, that are just for women, and some just for men. A womans chant

    We all come from the Goddess
    And to her we shall return
    like a drop…….. of rain
    flowing to the ocean

  3. No they don’t have to. they can choose to if they want, but a chant is usually written for an entire group to do together regardless of gender it is usually written or chosen based on the Sabbat or working that is being done

  4. There are almost no songs/chants in Wicca that I know of that are specifically male or female, with the exception of the following chant which is traditionally performed at Beltane:

    The Beltane Chase

    Ladies:
    I shall go as a wren in spring
    With sorrow and sighing on silent wing
    And I shall go in our Lady’s name Aye, till I come home again.

    Men:
    And we shall follow as falcons grey
    And hunt thee cruelly as our prey
    And we shall go in our Master’s name
    Aye, to fetch thee home again.

    Ladies:
    Then I shall go as a mouse in May
    In the fields by night and cellars by day
    And I shall go in our Lady’s name
    Aye, till I come home again.

    Men:
    But we shall follow as fat tom cats
    And chase thee through the corn and vats
    And we shall go in our Master’s name
    Aye, to fetch thee home again.

    Ladies:
    Then I shall go as an Autumn hare
    With sorrow and sighing and mickle care
    And I shall go in our Lady’s name
    Aye, till I come home again.

    Men:
    But we shall follow as swift grey hounds
    And dog thy tracks by leaps and bounds
    And we shall go in our Master’s name
    Aye, to fetch thee home again.

    Ladies:
    Then I shall go as a Winter trout
    With sorrow sighing and mickle doubt
    And I shall go in our Lady’s name
    Aye, till I come home again.

    Men:
    But we shall follow as otter’s swift
    And snare thee faster thou can’st shift
    And we shall go in our Master’s name
    Aye, to fetch thee home again.

    Ladies:
    Aye, and I’ll come home again.

  5. no. they can make up some that are, but generally no. Now if you want to learn, the books by Scott Cunningham are the best. I don’t however hold to certain books being better than others because you can always learn even from the bad ones. Like what not to do. I also don’t hold to avoiding certain publishers because they allow many to be published for money. I look at it this way, they are giving those authors a chance and MONEY is what you use to pay taxes, put a roof over your head, clothes on your back and food on the table. (As you see I refuse to be politically correct and agree with the popular frame of mind.) If you have any questions, just contact me and I’ll see what I can answer or find where you can find it if I am not sure.
    Blessed Be!
