That's a good question because I get confused too.
I can't wait for an answer.

Hiya,

I'm curious what the essence of Wicca is, its definition and if it relates to Paganism in any way?

Thanks
:love2:

I always sort of marry the two in my own mind, but I'm not sure if that's an accurate assessment. Perhaps someone with more knowledge on the subject can enlighten us. I don't consider myself a wiccan, but I do find many of the beliefs to be quite beautiful, most especially the female god-head (i.e., the Goddess) and the honoring of nature's power.

I consider myself a wiccan or a pagan but because i'm naive I don't know the difference between the two so maybe someone can help us.

How long have you got ?

Pagan is the over-arching term indicating a polytheistic faith outside of the Abrahamic group. Wicca is a faith within this blanket term.
Beyond that point I will not go as that is the point where arguments begin.

That was what I was thinking. Thank you for clarifying :smile:
