I'm Wiccan! Ask me anything!Watch
Wicca is a pagan religion. The main difference between Wicca and Witchcraft is that Witchcraft is a lifestyle, and Wicca is a religion - we believe in deities, and abide by guidelines, sort of like the bible but we follow it quite loosely in most cases.
I have some wiccan friends that believe in all different traditions of wicca- british traditional, irish and dianic.
Cool! I'm just getting into Wicca, it's an awesome religion. Can I ask, what deities do you worship?
I only really do deity work with Morrigan though
Because I believe in it? Because I like the morals, the confidence and happiness it brings me? That's an interesting question, and a hard one to answer other than it's my belief lmao.
We have 2 main things. The Wiccan rede (The most important lines from this are: "These eight words the rede fulfil, and harm ye none, do what you will). It basically means that you can do whatever you wish, as long as you don't harm anybody doing it. The second is our way of describing karma, the Three Fold Law. This means that whatever you do comes back to you three times over, be it positive or negative.
Those are decent startpoints. But I do think belief ought to be justified in some way. Is there some sort of soteriology? Christians are Christians because they hedge their bets on salvation (well...), Buddhists are Buddhists because the psychology of Buddhism is meant to provide salvific reprieve from dissatisfaction etc. Does your flavour of Wicca offer something similar?
