Well, I didn't knew that. I have been looking for something that fits my needs, and I decided to study witchcraft. I'm from Belgium, so I think that I feel the most connected to witchcraft in Europe. I don't know why but I associate witchcraft with Great Britain... Is there something like Celtic witchcraft or something? I'm a little bit puzzled. Something like "plain" witchcraft doesn't exists then? And so magic is different within each culture then? This is getting confusing...really.

Your decision to research and practice witchcraft is good. Smiley  At this point I would recommending a bit more reading, because it seems right now that you don't have quite a good grasp at what you are trying to learn or say.  I'm not trying to discourage you, rather I am hoping you will go out and get all those fabulous books and a journal so you can sort out all of this information.  There are excellent articles here at TC as well as threads that discuss recommended books for beginners.  You may also want to take a look at the book review section to help you get a feel for what types of material you will be getting into.  I hope that with your reading you will no longer be confused and that you will grow as a spiritual person.

In response to your question about language and ritual, I would like to add my two cents.  I think speaking other languages (my native tongue is American English) is beautiful and moving.  Also, I think it adds more to the ritual because you are putting more time into it.  I would love to speak Irish Gaelic in my rituals, but I'm still working on the pronunciation!

Also you mentioned something about the official language of witchcraft.  Witchcraft really doesn't have an official language, rather it is dependant on the person.  Witchcraft is one of those things that is highly adaptable and can mean many different things--again based on the individual.

Finally, if you are interested in the "Celtic" side of things, head on over to Hazel and Oak, TC's very own Celtic SIG.  There are a lot of threads that can help you get started in your search.

Good Luck to you!

The only people for me are the mad ones. The ones who are mad to love, mad to talk, mad to be saved. The ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars." -Jack Kerouac
