I agree with most of what is said in this article but again I do not feel the books are needed by novices. Lady Beltane
In my previous article, 5 Common Mistakes Made by Beginning Witches, I discussed mistaken concepts and ideas about the Craft overall that would trip you up before you even got started. In this article, I’d like to focus more on technical mistakes that a beginner is more likely to make.
It’s understandable that everyone would make mistakes– Witchcraft isn’t an ‘easy path’ to anything; and everyone starts off stumbling when they first start it. There’s a lot of information to take in at once, and without a one-on-one mentor or guide training you, it can be difficult to build your understanding. Some of these points here might save you from struggling, or help you realize why you have struggled with something.

While I do not agree with everything written in this article it is another point of view on The Craft. I also do not recommend the book in this article for novices, some of the things in it to me are to advance for beginners. Lady Beltane.
“Beginning Witchcraft can be a bit confusing, especially when you don’t have a mentor or any kind of guidance. It’s no surprise—if the Craft were the quick and easy way to deliver your heart’s desires to you, everyone would be using it. There is a reason why so many people say, “I tried Witchcraft, it doesn’t work!” This is because dabbling gets you nowhere. It’s a little like someone who has never played a musical instrument before coming into your house, banging on your piano for 30 minutes and proclaiming pianos don’t work because it didn’t play a song. The problem is not the instrument; the problem is you have to learn how to play it.
When you first begin learning, there are some common pitfalls you may want to avoid.
