Learning spellwork and divination are really a secondary part of most Wiccan paths. Both “Wicca” and “witch” share the same linguistic root word, an old Anglo-Saxon term meaning “wise one.” Any adherent of Wicca may called herself a Witch—whether or not she practices witchcraft.

(A male Wiccan is also called a Witch.) Some Wiccans capitalize the word “Witch” to emphasize that it is a religious affiliation, not just a description of their behavior. Wicca was first named and described by an Englishman named Gerald Gardner.

Witchcraft is a broad term for a variety of practices, including spellcasting, divination, spirit communication, trance journeying, and many more.

Some form of witchcraft has occurred in every known civilization since the beginning of recorded history.

Simply put, all Wiccans are Pagans, but not all Pagans are Wiccans. Many other religions have branches or denominations.

If someone tells you that they are Presbyterian, you can safely assume that they are also Christian.

I’d venture—based on purely anecdotal evidence, of course—that most Wiccans do practice some form of witchcraft.

At its heart, witchcraft is about using interactions with the unseen world to effect change on the mundane world.

The Witch’s power comes from within his or herself, from Nature, or from allied gods or spirits.

Some just want to better understand their Pagan friends and neighbors.

Like many Pagans, I started my training under Wiccan teacher before moving onto my own personal path.
