I know I am pretty new at this, but one of the things that I’ve noticed about people who are newly interested is Wicca is to rush to buy everything even remotely pagan related. For a religion focused mainly on nature, that seems rather silly to me.
Over the past month or so, I’ve collected…
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with buying tools, especially when it’s from local pagan shops. However, I’ve seen over the years that solitaries (not all, but a lot of them) become more reliant on buying things than someone who is taught [by someone else]. That’s not bad or anything, just not the most traditional look at it. My first teacher had me go out and find as many of my tools as possible in the woods and also had me find all of the ingredients to cleanse and bless them there too; so for me, buying things just doesn’t seem as personal as finding them in nature, you know? But, as the saying goes “each to their own,” how other people get their things isn’t really any of my business. ^^’
