Is a Christo-Wicca pretty much someone who is a Christian and they are also a Wiccan?

I’ve been doing some research on Wicca because my friend was telling me about it, but I couldn’t understand what she was talking about. I went online and someone mentioned Christo-Wicca. I couldn’t understand it because it was all in a different language. But what is a Christo-Wicca?

  • I would call it woefully confused.

    But on a side note; today is the day of the lady of the hunt. To the Romans, she was Diana, to the Greeks she was Artemis; queen of the witches, goddess of magic. Born on the island of Delos. The daughter of Jupiter and Latona. She was the god Apollo’s twin sister, and the Ides of August (8/13) is her day.
    Very cool story too.

    Here this should help;

  • So-called Christo-Wiccans generally are Christians who do folk magic and think Wicca is about doing folk magic….

    So, basically, they aren’t Wiccan at all.

  • Yes, a Christo-Wiccan is someone who is trying to blend the ideals of two faiths.

    You can be both a Wiccan and a witch, these two words are not the same. None of these words has anything to do with devil worship.

    One of the biggest sore points among Wiccans is the improper usage of the terms “Wiccan” and “Witch”. Too many people use the terms interchangeably, presuming that they both mean the same thing. They do not.

    Wiccan
    Wicca is a religion, and someone who follows that religion is called a Wiccan. Sometimes it can be difficult to accurately define Wicca, and not all Wiccans will define themselves the same way. Observing the 8 Wiccan Sabbats, honoring the Gods and/or Goddesses, creating sacred space for rituals, to name a few. Many traditional Wiccans also feel that belonging to a coven is also a requirement and that those who practice their religion as a solitary, should not refer to themselves as Wiccan. Personally, I’m still not sure on that point. Typical Wiccans also practice magick, and therefore are also witches. You cannot be a “natural Wiccan” any more than you could be a “natural Christian”.

    Witch
    The practice of witchcraft is not associated with any religion, therefore you can be a witch and yet also be a member of any number of religions (or none). Using the natural energies within yourself, along with the energies of herbs, stones or other elements to make changes around you is considered witchcraft. Though the skills and gifts that are part of witchcraft can be inherited from parents or grandparents, you aren’t automatically a witch just because your grandmother may have been one. The use of magick takes practice, experience and learning. On a side note, a male witch is called a witch, not a warlock.

    Pagan
    While I’m explaining terminology, I thought I would throw in “Pagan” as well. Paganism refers to a variety of non-Christian/Jewish/ Islamic religions that are usually polytheistic and are often nature-based. Wicca is only one Pagan religion, but there are others such as Santeria, Asatru, or Shamanism. Many people do not necessarily identify with a specific religion, and just use the broad term “Pagan” to define their spiritual path. Pagan religions are distinct and separate from each other, and it should not be assumed that they are just different names for the same faith.

  • Merry Meet Skye,

    Realistically any person can make Wicca work with Christianity, but it is going to be a hard road ahead for that person when trying to make Christianity work with Wicca. The two realistically are not compatible. If you are truly interested, there is a book out on the market called Christo Wicca, and from what some people have told me it’s a good read. Search Amazon.com, I bet you can find it there. Also check out this link http://dagwench.tripod.com/christianwitch/Wicca/what_is_a_christo_wiccan.htm.

    Blessed Be

  • basically yeah. it’s christians that worship in the wiccan fashion instead of a christian one. but wiccans from other trads don’t accept them because they’re christians, and not pagans.

    here’s a site, in english, that will help you in your research.
