Wicca is growing at an astounding rate today. Teens may feel overwhelmed or discouraged when attempting to introduce Wicca into their lifestyles and not know where to go. Many teens don't have the resources to purchase items that are commonly used in spell work or worship, and are looking for alternatives. Teen Wiccan is a place for teens who are Wiccan, interested in learning about Wicca, or are looking for ideas to help them on their path. Welcome, and blessed be!

What is Wicca?
Wicca is an earth based religion. It is the largest neopagan religion today, and is still growing. This religion has nothing to do with satanism or devil worship. The Christian idea of a "devil" or "Satan" has no place in Wiccan beliefs. Wiccans (called Witches) have a love and respect for nature and life, and believe in a a Goddess and a God who created all life. While many wiccans choose to relate to just "the Goddess" or "the God", others choose to commune with specific dieties. The Wiccan Goddess and God have no specific image and no specific name, and leave room for interpretation.
Wiccans develop their own practices and rituals. One Wiccan is never the same as another, and each will adapt Wiccan beliefs and standards to make them their own. Wicca is all about personal preferance and creating practices that make the Witch feel connected to the earth and all of the creations of the Goddess and God.
This quotation elequently describes the Wiccan religion in ways that whole books have failed to:
"When one defines oneself as Pagan, it means she or he follows an earth or nature religion, one that sees the divine manifest in all creation. The cycles of nature are our holy days, the earth is our temple, its plants and creatures our partners and teachers. We worship a deity that is both male and female, a mother Goddess and father God, who together created all that is, was, or will be. We respect life, cherish the free will of sentient beings, and accept the sacredness of all creation." - Edain McCoy
