wicca-witch

what is the differance between a witch and a wicca?

by Caleb:

Answer by Fierce
Witches aren’t real and Wiccas are unfairly persecuted, for religious beliefs, like most religions because they’re different. Saying that all wiccans are witches, just because some people practice both, is like saying that all Christians are slave-owning racists. Which we ALL know isn’t true.

The difference is that Wicca is a religion. Anyone who follows Wicca is called a Wiccan. Most Wiccans are also Witches. In order to be a Witch you must practice Witchcraft which isn’t a religion, but is the use of magickal energies. Witches are found in every religion, even Christianity. However, many Wiccans will call themselves Witches and many books on Wicca use the term Witch or Witchcraft a lot. It makes it hard to tell the difference sometimes. For example I own a book called “The Witch’s Book of Answers” by Eileen Holland and Cerelia and it is a… Read more »

The definitions of Paganism, Wicca and Witchcraft can be varied depending on which book you are reading, and the experiences of the author who wrote it. The first thing most people look at, which would probably be the first thing you looked at also, is the bog-standard dictionary. Well not surprisingly, there were no entries for Wicca or Wiccans. There was an entry for pagan though, which I found quite interesting: Pagan adjective 1 belonging to a religion which worships many gods, especially one which existed before the main world religions: a pagan religion The Easter egg has both pagan… Read more »

A witch is a person (or either gender) who practices magick mostly out of doors, as opposed to a magician who practices magick mostly inside a temple or lodge. Wicca is one of many NeoPagan religions. Some Wiccans are witches, some witches are Wiccans.

A Witch is someone who practices holistic healing through herbs, reiki, reflexology, colors, spells and crystals, to name a few.
Some Witches hold to a Pagan or Wiccan Tradition, others do not.

A person who practices Wicca, is practicing a neo-Pagan religion. Wicca is a religion recognized by the United States and many other nations.

Some Witches practice Wicca, but not all those who practice Wicca are Witches.

answer: Wicca is a religion, a Wiccan is a follower of Wicca.

Witchcraft is a practice, a witch is one that uses witchcraft.

Not all Wiccans are witches, not all witches are Wiccans.

Witchcraft is the raising of energy and sending out that energy towards a directed goal – like prayer. Energy is raised through ritual, the use of candles, herbs or other tools to aid in the necessary focus.

Wicca is a religion that is life affirming, celebrating the year and life with holidays throughout the year and the phases of the moon.
