The advice that I would give, and I often give (uselessly) is: don't expect to find a ready-made 'path' that is 'authentic' and that fits you perfectly.
There's no such a thing. Witchcraft is an experiential path: trust you guts first, then trust the spirits that work with you, then trust people who've been doing this longer than you have.
Read whatever comes through your hands, then close the books go out and do things your ways.
Never believe something is going to work because it's presented as 'traditional', question everything. Be suspicious of everything that claims to be 'ancient'. When asking 'why is this done so?' the reply you get is 'because it's always been so', you're probably dealing with someone who's just looking for influence over people. If something doesn't feel right to you, then probably it's not right for you. Never trust those who seek followers, but always learn from other practitioners and 'steal' what's useful.
Don't get in stuck in your beliefs, they will change as you go along the way.
Don't be afraid to try stuff just because it's not 'traditional', you may be missing out on cool things.
