You can create a link to Pagan Roots using the images and code examples below. If you want to use a picture, please right click on the image you like and choose ‘Save Image As’, then save it to your computer. Move it to the images folder of your website, and upload it to your web server. Then copy and paste the HTML code into the page you’d like to show the link on. In the code, change the section “address of the file on your server” to the address of the picture on your web server. If you’d prefer to just create a text link, you can copy the code for one of the first three example links given below, and simply paste it into your website, no changes needed.

There are a great many Pagan and Wiccan sites on the internet which will give you ready-made spells or rituals, which will give you step by step guides to performing magic, or will give you endless lists of names with no depth to the information. Roots is different.
On this site you will find the information you are looking for, along with personal thoughts, insights and opinions. More than that though, I have tried to explain why these things are done. It is all very well to have examples of what to do, but unless you understand why they are done it will be much harder to create your own versions. Why do you need to create your own rituals and spells? I believe there is only one rule in Wicca; find what works for you.
Using things which other people have written is a good way to get used to practising Wicca, but much of it is simply what the author has found works for them. There is no one right way to word a spell, or perform a ritual and you will find that the most effective workings you do are ones which you have tailored for your wants and needs. Magic is about your mind, not about what you say or do; these are simply prompts to help you achieve the right state of mind. With a solid understanding of why different things are done, you will be able to better understand the rituals and spells that others have created, as well as being that much closer to creating your own effective magical workings.
Remember while reading through the articles and information on this site that I am simply presenting my own thoughts and opinions for you to consider. I hope you’ll find it both interesting and helpful, but I would always recommend further reading, and experimentation to see what works for you.
The examples given above are by no means a complete list of the pages on this website, and I encourage you to explore using either the drop down menu near the top of the page, the various tags listed at the right hand side or the search box at the top of the right hand column.
