uhm...I've seen a lot of pictures of Pan, Cerridwen, & Hecate...I think
they called them...can't remember exact spellings or whatever,
but who are they? Are they like dieties? [/color]

Yes...they are Deities.

Pan is a Horned God usually depicted with a flute and half man half goat body.

Cerridwen and Hecate are both what we call "Triple Goddess". Which means they take on each of the "Maiden, Mother and Crone" aspect of the female Deity.

The Pentagram is a symbol used in paganism to symbolize the 5 elements (Earth, Air, Fir, Water, Spirit)

In traditional times, An inverted pentagram (upside down) symbolized a persons degree status within the coven. a second degree witch (like myself) would wear an inverted pentagram. But since the rise of using the inverted pentagram in Satanism, most covens did away with a 2nd degree wearing the upside down pentagram.

A pentagram to pagans is like wearing a cross for a christian

This stuff is quite interesting, i've always have found it to be. My mom actually is the one that's got me interested in this stuff.

I have a question for WitchMom. I collect books that are helpful reads about things pertaining to either the paranormal or, specifically, Wicca and paganism in general. Besides Scott Cunningham's books (which I LOVE, I might add) what books would you recommend for beginners seeking knowledge and guidance, and for more experienced persons looking for more in-depth information about Wicca?
I would like to convert someday myself (and have wanted to for at least the last 5 or so years of my life), but I'm wanting to join a group of individuals rather than be a solitary all by my lonesome, haha. So until that day I'm pretty content to celebrate by myself in my own way and continue learning more and more. It's nice of you to offer help like this; I know I appreciate it. (:

I recomend Highly Raymond Buckland. He has a book called "Complete book of Witchcraft" its big and blue with a pentagram on it.

Its kinda dry for a read but has TONS and TONS of information on Traditional Wicca.


And no problem on the questions Smile I was solitary for a long time till I helped formed a coven (I had already trained some with another coven but was not a member)

I love coven life, the only downside is it takes alot of work and alot of time. Expecially now that I'm high enough in rank where I'm teaching people. Its rewarding yet exausting at the same time LOL

I imagine that would be very exhausting indeed, haha. I like to really dedicate myself to things, though, so a lot of time and effort put into something would be a major plus to me. Hopefully I'll be able to learn from someone myself someday. I recently moved to a new area so I'm hoping to find a coven somewhere nearby that might be willing to teach me or at least associate with me once in a while, haha.

I actually own that very book, but haven't yet read it. I'll move it to the top of my list. Thank you. Smile

If your looking for local pagans a good place to check is meetup.com or witchvox.com

I run a meetup group in my area for local wiccans...thats where many of our coven members came from.
