The world is full of lots of different religions, with lots of different beliefs. Wicca and Paganism are both examples. Both have a foundation of nature. Though they may be very similar in many ways, they are two totally different religions.

Wicca’s formal definition, according to wicca.com  is “A religion influenced by pre-Christian beliefs and practices of western Europe that affirms the existence of a supernatural power and of both male and female deities who inhere in nature and that emphasizes ritual observance of seasonal and life cycles.” Whilst Paganism is very similar it is not exactly the same.  According to wikipedia.org, the formal definition of Paganism is, “A modern religious movement incorporating beliefs or practices from outside the main world religions, especially nature worship.” Wicca is a specific religion with its own beliefs and gods. Paganism is more of an umbrella over several religions.

Wicca and Paganism are two very different religions, but they do have one thing in common. Everybody thinks they worship the devil, but most don’t. Many Wicca and Pagans worship gods and goddesses such as the Horned God Herne the Hunter. However, not all are polytheist, some believe in no god at all. Both the religions are very open.  They don’t have strict rules.  The one ‘rule’ of Wicca is known as the Wicca Rede. Its more of a moral code instead of a rule. But, it states: do as you will, as long as it harms none. Some pagans also follow this Rede as well. Most Pagans follow the rule of three. Which basically means whatever you do in this life will get you back in the future. May it be good or bad.
