If anyone has any questions on Wicca
I would be more then happy to answer them Icontexto-emoticons-09-032x032

My qualifications LOL are that I am a second degree Wiccan High Priestess in a coven (which means I have studied my butt off and have been initiated through a coven degree system). I am also teaching a Wicca 101 course to students seeking the Wiccan path. I am also a Hand Maiden which means I am the one who takes over the coven when the High Priestess decides to step down. I practice magick also tho I do not teach magick to those seeking. I will answer questions on it, but when you teach...you become responsible.

So ask away if you have any questons ask away Smile

Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.
(William Butler Yeats, "The Land of Heart's Desire," 1894)

I always associated wicca with magick...are they not connected?
aren't the followers called witches? If so, is it possible to practice wicca
without doing the magick? or..is magick all it consists of?
I'm so clueless...lol~sorryy
~this might kinda be off topic, lol, but uhm...what difference does it
make if one spells it 'magick' or 'magic'? is there any difference...?
Wicca seems to have a good vibe to it~
it just seems more appealing to me everytime I hear about it..
although I do not have any religion.

Wiccans CAN practice magick if they so choose. All magick is is manipulation of energies. There is a saying that some disagree with

"All Wiccans are Witches but not all Witches are Wiccans" The argument with that is some wiccans say that they do not practice magick. But in reality....if you ever cast a sacred circle of protection during a ritual...your manipulating energy there for your practicing magick. Theres a fine line but that is MY personal beliefs.

When I say "magick" there is no difference between that "magic" I use the K at the end because in my mind it seperates energy/spell work from stage magic (like david copperfield)

Magick is just a small part of the Wiccan religion. We honor and worship our deities as a male and female aspect. We call upon certain ones depending on our needs. We honor the earth and all that it holds.

RE: If anyone has any questions on Wicca
oh~thank you for the information.
I joined http://www.witchvox.com/ a few days ago & I noticed this word, 'handfasting' . . . what is that?
It's under the clergy > priest/priestess section for my state...
so I'm assuming its something only they can do?

RE: If anyone has any questions on Wicca
I believe handfasting is a marriage ceremony isn't it? The priestess preforms it and depending on where you live and if they are ordained... it is considered legal. (I think LOL)

RE: If anyone has any questions on Wicca
You think? You're probably right~if not WitchMom will know for sure...I'm positive of it! lol
Thanks for the answer though~you seem more knowledgable about Wicca
than I do~but I have a few books about it now(Alexandrian Book
of Shadows, Garnerian Book of Shadows, The Wiccan Book of The Dead)!

A Handfasting is a "union" ceramony. Joining together of two souls. It can or can't be legal. and we perform them on same sex or opposite sex couples.

Many couples who do a handfasting just do a ceramony binding them together for a year and a day. If the High Priestess or High Priest is ordained in their state It can be a legal Ceramony.

I've been a part of many handfastings. They really are beautiful!

Also if you can have a "Hand Parting" where when you and your lover decide to part ways, you can have a hand parting ritual to signify the cutting of the ties.
one of the books I recommend most to people who are curious are

"Wicca, a guide for the solitary practitioner" by Scott Cunningham

Its an easy read (the books you have are very hard reads, very informative but kinda dry and hard to read) and has alot of usefull information

same sex couples to join together.
