Witches, Wiccans and Magicians, I have a question?

Is the “Etheric Plane” the same as the “Astral Plane”???

This has an explination of the etheric plane if you want to check it out — http://davensjournal.com/index.htm?APotI.xhtml&2

Thanks!
To me it seems to be the same thing, but I would like your thoguhts on this matter.

The Etheric is more like the delicate division between the first plane (physical) and the second (astral).

In A Witches Bible the Farrars have an excellent chart of all seven planes, this webpage is theirs and it gives the exact same thing: http://www.wicca.utvinternet.com/aura.htm

Yes, they are the same thing. “Etheric” was a more common word for it during the Golden Age of the Victorian occult revival. “Astral” became more popular with the newer breed of occultists in the 60’s.

That would depend on who you ask.

Most consider them synonomous.
