What do the Wiccan believe in? Is wicca a religion?

Wicca is most definitely a religion and the principles of the faith date back
to pre-Christian times. Modern Wicca and other forms of Paganism are celebratory,
positive and life-affirming. These belief systems have absolutely nothing to do
with sacrifices of anything or anyone. Believe me�I�ve been in the
movement so long if it existed, I�d have encountered it! Our beliefs have
nothing to do with devil, Satan or any form thereof. This is true no matter what
you may have read, or been told, or seen on T.V. or in the movies.

As Wiccans, we practice rituals that attune ourselves with the rhythm of life.
We mark the phases of the Moon and the seasonal Quarters. We pay attention to
nature and respect the natural rhythm of everything in our world. Nature is
sign of the divine and we respect that divinity.

We also worship the Mother Goddess and her consort, the God. Both figures comprise
the duality that we see in nature. The Goddess and God have taken several different
forms to different people around the globe over history.

We follow the Wiccan Rede that states �An Ye Harm None, Do as Ye Will.�
It means that our work in this world may be done, as long as it harms none.
It is the foundation our practice of magick and other rituals. Some Wiccans
practice spellcraft, but it is not necessary in order to be Wiccan.

We acknowledge that we each have a power within ourselves that is greater than
is apparent to most people. Everyone has this power and it is a potential within
all of us to foster this power.

We also recognize the presence of both inner worlds and outer worlds. These
are personified by the Spiritual World and the Material World.

Just like nature, we seek balance in everything: our lives, the world around
us, our environments.
