What is Wicca

Wicca (also known as the Craft or Witchcraft) is a religion based on pre-Christian Pagan beliefs. It is a recognized religion that might best be described as a modern religion, based on ancient Witchcraft traditions. It is a very complex faith which embraces widely varying practices and many different traditions. Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of life. Wiccans promote oneness with the Divine and all that exists.

Wicca is typically a duotheistic religion, worshipping both a Goddess and a God, who are traditionally viewed as the Triple Goddess and Horned God. These two deities are often viewed as being facets of a greater pantheistic Godhead, and as manifesting themselves as various polytheistic deities. It is important to note the Horned God is NOT the devil of Christian beliefs. His horns are more commonly "antlers" and he is a representation of Divine Nature. The Triple Goddess refers to the various states of womanhood: Maiden, Mother and Crone.
