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!

  1. I consider myself a pagan not Wiccan as Wicca theology tends to be based a round a destinctive Lord and Lady model, specifically the various paths ussally honor the Triple Goddess and Horned God. I personally work with the Hellenistic / Roman Pantheon, which while compatible with the rest of Wicca’s teachings it is not quite the same theology model.
    I also hang out with the ADF Druids which is a very orginized international group of pagans, and worth a look as you learn and explore.
    I am always glad to help people find information, suggest resources and answer questions.
    Deborah Blake is a good author for beginers, and based off your writting style I think her books would be a good match for you. I also recommend True Magick by Amber K. It has the best instruction I have ever read for basic energy work and spell construction.
    Blessed be on your spiritual journey.


  2. Hi! Welcome to the path. In my experience, we are all still learning all of the time. I’m looking forward to reading more about your journey.


  3. Great article! I consider myself a, solitary Atheopagan to-some-extent-witch as I follow the ideals and sabbats of Paganism but without gods (though I really appreciate their symbolism). I perform some magick and rituals but only those which affect my mind and spirit. I don’t believe that I have the power to alter fate or anything so don’t perform that sort of magick (i.e. spells for money, black magick, and so on) abd I don’t really believe in divination, however I use tarot cards for perspectives – that’s why I’m kind of a witch but not 100% sure! I borrow some things from Wicca within my spiritual lifestyle so looking forward to seeing more of your posts 😊
