The First Questions I Had About Wicca

Recently, I started my Wiccan journey. I feel like this is the right path for me and I feel like I was always meant to find Wicca.

Today I wanted to share some of the questions that I first had when I started my Wiccan journey…

Can anyone be a Wiccan?

The simple answer to this is yes. There’s a little magic in all of us. Never let anyone tell you that you need to be of a certain heritage, or born into a tradition of witchcraft in order to learn.

Do you need to be a vegan to be a wiccan?

The Wiccan Rede is a statement that provides the key moral system in the neopagan religion of Wicca and certain other related witchcraft-based faiths. A common form of the Rede is An’ ye harm none, do what ye will. After I read this, I figured that surely, you can’t be a Wiccan and eat animals. So, I did a little research and it turns out that you don’t need to be a vegan to be a Wiccan.

Do Wiccans have Witch names?

This one I was really interested in as it’d be really run to have a magickal name. The answer to this question though is that is depends on the Wiccan. When we are Wiccan, baby names and pet names take on even more significance, because Wiccans know that a name has power.

What is the connection with Wicca and crystals?

Crystals are used in magick because of their power to conduct magickal energy. When you are working with a crystal, your energy, intent, and power are focused into the crystal and blend with the magickal properties the crystal already possesses.

What is the difference between a book of shadows and a grimoire?

Most witches keep a Book Of Shadows, but not a Grimoire. A BOS is a witch’s personal book of magic; a diary of magic if you will. It includes records of all magical workings, dreams and their meanings, rituals, etc. A Grimoire is like a BOS, but not as personal. It holds information about rituals, spells, potions, and how to prepare magical tools.

Do you consider yourself a Wiccan? I would love to chat to you if you do! I’m still new to this but I love to learn more and grow!
