I feel drawn to both of these paths. I am having trouble deciding which one to follow. Can anyone give me some guidance?

@ Sanne
One can travel the paths of both 'Wiccan' and 'Druid'. It does not have to be an either/or choice. For myself, I am a Wiccan with Druid leanings.

I'm an eclectic myself, as it's easy to piece together your own path from what you learn. I have long said there are as many paths as there are travelers. Some of the most obvious distinctions lie in how rituals are performed and how much spellwork is performed. For example, on average, a druid won't perform as much spellwork as a typical wiccan. However, where the wiccan will cast the circle, the druid will not (preferring to allow helpful and benign spirits to pass freely through the space). Anecdotally, I have heard of wiccans going to druid ceremonies and performing the minor pentagram ritual in a bit of a panic when the druids seemed to have "forgotten" to initiate the practice with it. There are some other differences, sure, but those are the most readily obvious. I cast more spells than your average druid does, but I forgo the casting of the circle. However, when a ward is required, I opt for the druid version which is actually rectangular rather than circular. In any case, you can mix and match what works for you.

The information I have presented can be found in a really awesome book by Sutton and Mann called "Druid Magic." Some great stuff in there, actually.
