Wicca & Witchcraft
Post # 1
I think I searched on all the forums, I was looking specificly for a post named in a way "What Withcraft is and isn't" by Lark. It had "What Wicca is and isn't" but I think on he past I saw about Withcraft as well.

Anyways, I think I have understood the differences. Basically Wicca is a religion and Witchcraft is an art. I have asked people what Witchcraft is and they told me it's everything, everything we practise and such. But in that "everything" isn't Wicca involved? All Wiccans are Witches but not all Witches are Wiccans, according to Lark. I understand that, a Witchcrafter may choose not to follow the Wicca path. But Wiccans are Witches and they have a specific religion, love for nature and such. Isn't that contained in "everything"?

Also, I'm planning to be a Witchcrafter in the future. I saw Witchcrafters don't necessarily work with nature and such-but I love nature, and maybe want to work with it (rarely). I also saw Wiccans believe in all Gods, I believe in all Gods too. Will this make me a Wiccan?

Eventually, I thought "Complete book of Witchcraft" was about Witchcraft from the title, but Lark mentioned it was about Wicca. I still had the same opinion about Witchcraft and Wicca back then, but why wasn't I able to understand the difference??? I don't think all Witchcrafters who work and love nature are Wiccans.

that article might help you.

Wicca is just a title like Witch, just because your path is similar it doesn't make you Wiccan. If you don't believe in the Threefold Law or The Rede, you're not Wiccan. If you believe in multiple deities it doesn't make you Wiccan either. i'm no expert on witchcraft myself, but it's more about observing and understanding the world than spells and gods [that's just extra. some follow it, some don't] Wicca is a religion withe one goddess and one God. [some choose to combine more deities, but that's personal, not Wicca by definition] don't worry about being labelled 'Wicca' by the universe, it won't, it's other people. just say you study Witchcraft and that's all you need to say really.
