What is Wicca?
Wicca is a spiritual belief, religion if you will, that was introduced by Gerald Gardner in the mid 1900's. It's roots are in Paganism and that of Witchcraft, an ancient practice that goes back through the mists to ancient prehistoric times.
Wicca is an old Anglo Saxon word that means a seer, or someone who can divine information by the use of magick. This word also has the meanings: turn, bend and shape. Witchcraft is over 20,000 years old.
In Wicca we use magick. The word Magick comes from the old Greek word "Magos" and the old Persian word "Magus", these words mean seer or wizard. Wizard in old English means someone who is wise.
What is a Witch?
What is a witch? We have all seen wicked witches on TV in the movies etc... Just take a look at the Blair witch project movie for example, are witches really that evil? What are they really about?
The Oxford dictionary gives this definition of a witch:
A sorceress, esp. a woman supposed to have dealings with the devil or evil spirits. An old ugly woman; a hag.
This is how the world view us as witches. This is not what we really are.
The word Witch comes from the old Germanic root "to know", and this means that a witch is a person who is wise. As Witches, we are well versed in both scientific and spiritual truths. Witches are all about love, and harmony. If you ever hear of a black witch, or a witch who casts spells to harm others on purpose, he or she is not a witch.
