History of Wicca

The History and Origin of Wicca

Although Wicca as a religion ,was introduced to the public in the 1950s by Gerald Gardner, it had existed for a few decades prior to that functioning as separate covens throughout England.

Wiccan Traditions and Paths

Generally speaking, although Wicca has a set of guiding principles, each coven lays down its own rituals and rules. However, they also incorporate the opportunity to learn, develop and grow and so can be seen to allow a certain amount of flexibility into their practices.

Foundation of Magick

Foundations of Magick

Magick has been defined as ‘ The Art of Causing Change in Accordance with Will”. We cannot reach out directly upon the material level and touch the things of tomorrow, for upon this level they are yet . We can however, enter today, a subjective tomorrow in which we may touch the astral foreshadowing of those things, to bring them “nearer to desired will”. The mere naming of this mystery commands all reverence and circumspection; for, in this, we [...]

Wiccan Gods

Wiccan Horned God and the Triple Goddess

White Magic

What is White Magic? An Introduction

Compared to our ancient ancestors we are, simply because of the way society has developed, far less experienced in the ways of magic than they were.

The problem tends to arise because often Black Magic is automatically associated with Satanism or Devil Worship and often this misconception has been perpetrated and exaggerated by modern media [...]

Wheel of the Year

Sabbats – The Wheel of the Year

The pagan Wheel of the Year is marked by eight Sabbats, spaced approximately every six weeks throughout the year. Four of these Sabbats represent the position of the solar calendar (either solstice or equinox) and four fall at what are called the “cross quarters.” These ancient dates mark the middle of each season where the old begins to fade into new. Yule For many pagans, Samhain marks the first Sabbat. For me, however, the Wheel of the Year begins at Yule, [...]
