Well I am a person very much interested in the religion that is wicca..It is definitely not associated with satanism...Each religion should be accepted since wicca or paganism was more of nature worship...Over the years it was given a false appearance of satanism..But from what I have read about it is not satanic in nature...and is associated with Goddess worship- the ultimate feminine concept of spirituality and religion...
But since ur 13 both masquerade and moonchild are right about waiting for a couple of years until ur completely sure..Anyways May God Bless and u take care...:-)

And even at my age the attraction of some religions and beleifs was intriging. So I can only agree with the others, just wait a few years, explore and read and learn all you can about all the beleifs of others. You dont have to beleive, just be aware of what they beleive. For a number of years, i have read and visited and talked to people of many forms of Wicca, Pagens, Druids .. and still do not mesh totally with any. (but you should see my booklist!)
the fact you can allow others to beleive without making them feel that you are changing there mind is a good tool in our multi cultural society. It allso allows then to be a little more tolerant towards what ever chosen beleifs you have.

I see no reason to let your parents (if they are open minded...and only the 'child' can make that call) know that you are interested in or reading about Wicca and Paganism, but hold off announcing that you are a Wiccan or a Witch or a Pagan until YOU are sure this is the path you want. When I was 14 or 15, I defined myself as Wiccan without fully grasping the faith. Now, as an adult, I am a Celtic Pagan and practicing Witch, really rather different from a Wiccan. Not that there is anything at all wrong with Wicca, just that Celtic Paganism spoke more deeply and truely to me.
Some things you need to take the time to understand on your own (for your own benefit and to answer the inevitable questions from others) and to take the time to feel your way about and find the right path for you. Defining yourself as Wiccan at 13 may find itself changed drastically by age 20.
Oh, and please don't take that as me saying 13 year olds are fickle. (a lot of my posts have been interpreted in entirely the wrong way lately) That's not what I'm saying at all. Just that self discovery at any level is an ever changing thing. Wicca can speak to you at 13 but by say...18 Norse Paganism is what you have discovered is your truth. Or even a return to your childhood faith. That's all.

most parents are gonna have afit if their child tells them they are a witch, wiccan, pagan ( any occult) because they are lead to belivce its evil . its more difficult when you are under 18 because your parents w3ant to control all parts of your life even your religious choice.
here are some facts, we do not belive in the devil, we take responsibility for our own actions and do not blame them on an evil being, beliving in the devil just gives hime great powere over you, and i see no need for that. we worship god and goddess. we are spiritual people, we care and love all of nature. we do not cause harm to any living thing. many of us are supporters of animal rights activists groups and eviromentalist groups, i support both, we do not saccrifice animals or humans. we do not conjure evil spirits, we do not participate in orgies or have anything of the sort at meetings. we are not missionaries because forcing your religion on others is not our thing. if somone is intretd then they just ask us.
harry potter is not real, harry potter is pretend (why dont parents understand that)
we do not fly brooms, because its just impossible, we dont all dress in black9 many do because black represents all colors and absorbs energy.yes we use wands. no we dont claim to have power to move things or shoot light from our fingers. we do have familiars, not all are cats, its just an animal you feel a greast connection with, it could be any animal, its like a guardian, not a connection to the devil.
if anybody has any questions just ask me, or if you need som help. BLESSED BE

Lying is almost never good, and only bad things can come from lying in the current situation. Wind of Light needs to be honest - s/he is interested in / reading about Wicca. At 13 one still needs parental permission to join a religion (on my mission, we couldn't baptize anyone under 18 without a permission slip signed by the parents). Only announce you are Wiccan once you understand what that entails.
I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere
