Although the term “Wicca” is a term that became popularized in the mid-20th century, the origins of Wicca go back hundreds of years. From a technical perspective, Wicca is considered a neopagan religion. However, Wicca is less a religion in the conventional sense and more of a “belief system,” a term I use extensively to describe Wicca. Wiccans are modern day practitioners of witchcraft, though that term certainly carries with it a stigma because of the demonization of the term by the Judeo-Christian religions.
So you want to be a Wiccan, eh? Or, at the very least, you’re interested in learning about what a Wiccan is and what the beliefs & practices are. Either way, if you’re new to the Wiccan belief system, you’re in the right spot to begin to learn.
If you’re just starting out, then I recommend that you read through the different pages here in the “What Is Wicca?” section. There’s quite a bit of reading, so make sure you’re comfortable and you have a fresh refill of your favorite beverage before diving in.
