INTRODUCTION

Wicca is both a religion and a craft. As a religion it is the oldest in the world and worships The Goddess and The God.

Wicca and witchcraft are frequently linked together as describing the same craft but there are slight differences in that witches are believed to be more skilled at utilizing personal power in conjunction with the energies within natural objects. Today both words seem interchangeable so from now on I have chosen to use the term wicca.

The Goddess is seen as the creaturess of the universe bringing fertility, wisdom, love, compassion, healing and power. The God is masculine and presides over deserts, forests, wild animals, death and resurrection.

Wicca has nothing to do with devil worship, as some people without knowledge fear or shall we say assume thanks to Hollywood! It is an unending path of light, magic, love, healing, and awakening. Wiccans revere nature and see the true divine beauty of the universe.

Wicca as a craft, envelops magic (spells),divination (psychic powers) and positive healing using natural objects and personal power.

Some wiccans prefer to work alone and others to join like minded folk and become part of a coven but all abide by the Wiccan Rede:

'Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfil,
An` it harm none, do what ye will!'

 

Magic in itself is neither black or white but neutral and the power lies in the beholder to decide its outcome but no sensible wiccan would use magic for negative results since all believe in the threefold law;

What good you do returns to you threefold;
What harm you do also returns to you threefold

The significance of the number three in wicca comes from the three faces of The Goddess: The Maiden, The Mother and The Crone ( find out more on our Goddess pages)

Another significant number thirteen comes from the fact there are thirteen lunar cycles and until the Romans decided to change the calendar for their convenience there were thirteen months. To discourage people from using the old system they spread the word that the number thirteen was unlucky! Naughty Romans!

Certain numbers and symbols play an important role in wicca and over the next few months each month I will be adding to the witches broom closet further objects, symbols or numbers with a brief explanation of their importance - have a sneaky look at what's in the broom closet now!

 

Blessed be!

Remember the Nine Million
Bright Goddess of the Summerlands
Whom we shall meet, and know, and remember
and love them again!
