Witchcraft

Wicca, pronounced “wick-ah”, is a modern religion, based upon the ancient Western European, pre-Christian shamanic traditions. (Wicca itself has only been around for about 60 years or so, however, the traditions and beliefs that it is based on are ancient). It is fertility, earth based and nature orientated. Wiccans recognize and worship during the change of the seasons and the full and new moons. Wicca is considered a pagan religion, which means that it is not Judeo-Christian in origin. Pagan simply means “not of the city” or “country dweller” and should not be thought of as a negative term.

Wicca is unique in that it has no dogmas, doctrines or set of rules. This can be confusing for new practitioners as Wiccan practices are derived from within, are personal and individual and are not mandated by any one person, hierarchy or “bible”. Many people brought up in an organized religion are not used to such an open and free belief system. It takes time to become comfortable in developing your religious practices from your experiences and knowledge, but therein lies the beauty of Wicca.

Individuality is an honored trait for Wiccans, therefore, Wicca is not a “cohesive” religion. One can practice either with a coven or as a solitary and they can worship in their own individual way. Some people who belong to covens may branch out and form their own coven. This is totally acceptable and allows for a greater sharing of beliefs and of the establishment of new ideas and practices. Although Wiccan practices are unique to the individual or coven, most Wiccan’s have more in common with other Wiccans than they do differences.
