Hi, Keith.I'm a Wiccan High Priestess and I'm honestly a little confused by your question.I'm not trying to be critical here, but the reason I'm confused is that a) familiars are animals, spirit or corporeal.Humans are working partners.b) you aren't *given* a familiar.Familiars are animal allies who work with us out of choice.I realize that this is possibly semantic, but your phrasing leads me to believe that you may need more instruction.Are you being trained by a qualified Wiccan teacher? Wicca isn't just a "make it up by experimenting and reading books" sort of thing.It's a real system.

Please feel free to e-mail me at if you have more questions.

Sorry, there's no such thing as a psychic or a medium or a combination of the two.You're simply fooling yourself.

Since you're calling yourself a Wiccan without really knowing much about Wicca. One would wonder if you're not doing the same with psychic medium.
Anyway, I'm sure you'll do just fine with the familiars. Something tells me you'll be loaded with paranormal pals of all kinds.

My condolences to you on both counts.

Wicca is a religion. Familiars aren't part of Wicca.

Originally the concept of familiars come from Christian propaganda from the dark ages: they were believed to be evil creatures disguised as animals, under the control of a witch, or a witch herself disguised.

It made it's way up into the occult practices; then into new-age practices. I've never even heard of a human familiar.

But it's never actually been part of Wicca (except that maybe some Wiccans believe in it). People aren't given familiars because they become Wiccan. I can't even imagine who you think would be passing them out.

If you understand Wicca, I don't get why you would even preface a question about familiars. It's like saying, "I'm a Wiccan, I eat cheese." It's like, yeah… to unrelated things, what's your point? I guess that's what I find so confusing.
