What Is Wicca All About? Part II

In Part I, I talk about the basics of the deities and ethics in Wicca. Rituals and mythology play a key role in the Wiccan faith and I will discuss them here. The practice of magick is a defining feature of Wicca, as is the complex and interesting theology of the God and Goddess.

Wiccans, along with other neo-pagans and occultists, often use the spelling “magick” or “magik” to refer to the mystical practices in their faiths and traditions. They do this to make it clear they are referring to the special body of practices in Western esoteric traditions. “Magick” is contrasted with “magic”, which is the illusionist trickery used by street magic performers and stage magicians. Magick is regard as a real phenomena that appeals to deities for intervention or utilizes the natural, mystical laws of the universe.

The Use Of Colors In Magick

Colors and their symbolism take a large role in the practice of magick. However, remember that all of the tools and symbols in the world could vanish today and magick would still exist. Colors, like any other tool, is simply an aid to help you focus and cast spells effectively. They are especially useful when first starting out to help you steady your concentration and the contemplation of your goals.

One important aspect to bear in mind is the impact of particular colors on how you feel. If a color is unpleasant, carries bad memories, or makes you feel other negative emotions, avoid using it unless that feeling is appropriate. For example, feeling sadness for a dead loved one during Samhain (Halloween, or All Saints Day) is perfectly OK. The emotional effect of colors should not be underestimated.

What Is Wicca All About? Part I

The average person has only heard about Wicca in passing. Perhaps a cousin is a Wiccan or they heard about some controversy about Wicca in the news. Many are left with the impression they are some sort of “Satanic witches” or a strange and tiny cult. Both are quite contrary to the truth. Wicca is a faith rooted in Earth reverence and the practice of magical, spiritual rituals.

Wicca has holidays, rites, small traditions, and so forth like any other religion. It is an incredibly diverse faith with many branches and sets of beliefs. There is no established orthodoxy or ruling structure. Most Wiccans are “eclectic”, meaning that they draw information and mythology from several sources. That noted, there are some unifying features that define the faith.
