Default Ask a Wiccan!

Yes, I finally had the guts to make this thread.
And while I don't really consider myself a die hard "witch", Wicca is the closest of the religions/faiths that I identify with.

So if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask!

I'm glad that you made the thread. Wicca is not a religion that is commonly talked about. I have taken many courses on world religions and still don't know much about Wicca. Maybe you could start by explaining the basic beliefs?

How do you describe yourself when someone asks your religion? I don’t really know how to explain I’m roman pagan when people ask was wondering if it’s the same for you.

well that's the thing...Wicca has splintered off into alot of different sub groups over the years, so it's not like we all believe exactly the same things.
But for me, personally, I believe in the divinity of nature. Wicca is often very earth based and nature should be honored and respected. We come from the earth, and one day we will go back to it.
I involve the use of crystals, meditation, prayer, chants, and sigils in my practices. I celebrate the 8 major Sabbats (holidays) of wicca and will often spend alot of time in personal reflection and quiet thinking/meditation on those days. I hope to find a group of other people I can celebrate with in the future.

well, if it's a friend...I'll actually tell them i'm a witch lol. I mean i guess I am, even though I may not take it as seriously as other people. But if it's like a peer, or someone older, I'll just explain that I am Wiccan. Most people don't bother to get much into it after that

So have you practiced/tried using any spells? When I was in high school, someone told me they were Wiccan and they said they were trying to learn some magic/spells? I didn't know if they were pulling my leg or if all branches do that or what.

You mean the use of magic circles? Yeah, I've used it before, as well as other ritual drawings and sigils.

No....I haven't actually quite crossed that bridge yet. Like I haven't ever actually cast a specific spell...but I have sent out thought of intent with the lighting of a candle, or the drawing of a ritual circle.

demons? no. lost spirits who might wish to cause harm? yes.
it is very nature based, but I do believe in a spirit world...but no hell or heaven or anything like that.

I'll ask a list to help get this going:
(if answers vary amoung wiccans, give us your personal answer)

What holidays do you celebrate and how do you celebrate them?
Do you believe in one or more deities?
How was the earth created?
As a Wiccan, what do you do differently in your day to day life?
Where do you belief that you will go when you die?

I'm practicing Voodoo and it's folk magic based lil sibling Hoodoo. There you will find a great deal of rituals comprising of candles of different colors, oils, drawing circles and creating gris gris or the infamous dolls.
Are there comparable things in your religion, too?
Or we have some sort of sacrifices accompanying our prayers to the spirits and such is there something similar in Wicca, too?

That's cool. One of my teachers said his neighbor is one and to never piss one off. Is that true?
