Wow. I think some people are beyond the help of even very simply put explanations of Wicca. I'm still halfway in the broom closet. My close friends know about it, as well as my parents. But that's it. I'm just going to keep wearing a cross and quoting the Bible in front of the rest of my family, though... Knowing my grandma, she'll drag me by the ear to church and try to have an exorcism done on me...
But anyway, my parents are lesbian. The one that actually had me thinks slightly that this is just a phase, but respects it. My other mom will actually get in on it! It's awesome. She's asked me to give her messages from my grandpa, who died when I was a baby, I've read tarot cards for her, and I've given her charms for when she goes to the casino, and she won double what she spent! (The charm was thyme, aventurine, and botswana agate in a green velvet pouch if anyone wants to make one). My parents take me to a pagan store to get whatever I need, but wouldn't let me get a pentacle necklace, for my sake at school and among relatives. But she compromised on a triskelion.
Anyway, I wish you all still in the broom closet the best of luck!
Hear now the words of the witches,
The secrets we hid in the night,
When dark was our destiny's pathway,
That now we bring forth into the light.
