Air. Fire. Water. Earth. Spirit.
Wiccan beliefs boil down to just a few basic laws: the Wiccan Rede, the Charge of the Goddess, and the Rule of Three. The Rede, simply, states that so long as no one is harmed, you may do as you will. The Charge is a promise from the Goddess to teach and guide us. The Rule of Three states that what you put out into the world is returned to you threefold.
Eight words, the Rede, thou must fulfill: An’ it harm none, do as ye will.
What ye send forth returns to thee, so ever mind the rule of three.
Wicca is a nature-based, neo-Pagan religion. The largest of the modern-day pagan religions, Wicca is a broad movement with diverse beliefs and practices. The followers of Wicca, called Wiccans, often identify as witches, may practice in groups (usually called covens) or individually (often called solitary practitioners).
Wicca is considered a modern interpretation of pre-Christian traditions. The history of modern Wicca originates in the early twentieth century, and is based on the writings and beliefs of Margaret Murray, Gerald Gardner, Doreen Valiente, Raymond Buckland and so many others.
Wiccans practice their religion according to an ethical code, and many believe in reincarnation. Followers often use a pentagram, the five-pointed star, as the main symbol of the religion. Though rites and observances may vary, the practices generally include the honoring of a goddess and a god, holidays and festival celebrations on the “quarters” or solstices and equinoxes, and/or on the “cross-quarters” (which fall half way between the quarters), and based around the lunar cycle, and the inclusion of nature and natural objects in the rituals.
