One can become a warlock by taking up pagan religions, primarily the Wiccan religion, which is widely known as the religion of witchcraft. By definition, a warlock is a man. A female counterpart would be a witch or a sorceress.
- Study paganism
It is important to understand a faith thoroughly before joining. Contrary to popular belief, Wiccans are not the type of spellcasters who utilize magic wands. Reading up on Wicca and networking with Wiccans is a good way to learn what it is all about.
- Dedicate yourself to being Wiccan
There is no formal dedication ceremony for Wicca. It is a personal act of faith performed as a location chosen by the individual converting. It should, however, in some way reflect what it means to be Wiccan, and it should demonstrate a genuine appreciation for the commitment being made.
- Begin practicing magic
This can be done either alone, by consulting available resources such as books, or it can be done communally by joining a coven. A coven is a group of witches and warlocks who practice together. Most covens have a mandatory period for new members to learn about them and integrate themselves into the culture before being formally inducted.
