PostSubject: Differences between Witches and Wiccans?   Sun Sep 30, 2007 7:26 pm

Is there a difference between Witches and Wiccans? Or is a Witch just a category of Wiccan or vice-versa?

Could someone help us out with a definition please? Thanks. Smile

Personally I'd class all wiccans as witches (but doubtless some people would disagree) but not all witches are wiccans (like me, for example Smile).

"Wiccan" implys a more specific set of beliefs and practises than "witch", which (see what I did there?) can be far more varied.

Not all magickal practitioners would call themselves witches either - mages, for example.

Thank you, that makes sense. I appreciate the reply. Smile

I used to class myself as a Witch, but changed it to Mage, which means I deal more with energy, different planes, spirits and the like rather then spells, potions and herbs, etc...

Cool
Names are meaningless. Every follower of ` whatever` follows that ` whatever` slightly differently...and all methods of `following` are equally valid and worthwhile. In my opinion the discussion of `oh! I'm this and you're that` teaches nothing and forwards the cause of confusion in the end. All of us are on a journey, the means of transport is merely a matter of choice. Inevitably..we all reach the same stations....Stay strong.

Nicely said Spider. Have not seen you hear before, hope you stick around (maybe use the 'Introduce Yourself" section to do just that!

Personally I have never understood the need people feel to label oneself. I suppose some people find it useful in their search for self to analyse and catagorise themselves. Even if I don't fully understand this, I respect it. Personally I think we are all evolving as we grow and cannot seek to label ourselves as this may be represent the person of tomorrow. I cannot deal with being put in a box, I feel constrained rather than comforted.
