What is Witchcraft

Witchcraft is a very general term that incorporates many practitioners of magic(k) and nature based religions, the newest and most well known of these religions being Wicca. The word Wicca comes from the older word ‘wicce’ which means either ‘the wise’ or ‘to bend’


The word ‘Witch’ actually means ‘Magic Maker’. Generally speaking Witches are Pagans. Many people believe that paganism is a religion but others call it a system of beliefs or a culture.

The terms Witchcraft, Wicca and Paganism are often used interchangeably adding confusion to a great body of knowledge that is generally misunderstood by those not directly involved.

Magic(k) is a part of occult study, along with systems of divination and alchemy. In general,magic(k) is the activity of trying to cause change toward a desired end through symbolic means. The objectives of Magic(k) and the elements of its practice vary from one system or culture to another.

The witchcraft category has moved and can now be found here.
