What is Witchcraft?

From a Wiccan point of view, witchcraft is a spiritual practice that involves working with the natural world and using energy to manifest desired outcomes. It is a form of magic that is often performed in ritual or ceremonial settings, and is rooted in the belief that everything in the universe is connected and has a spiritual essence.

Witches in the Wiccan tradition typically work with the elements (earth, air, fire, water) and the cycles of the moon to perform spells and rituals. They often use tools such as candles, herbs, crystals, and tarot cards to help them focus their intention and direct their energy.

Wiccan witchcraft is generally seen as a positive and life-affirming practice, and witches in this tradition are often focused on personal growth, healing, and connection to the divine. They may also work to help others, such as by performing healing spells or protection spells for loved ones.

It’s important to note that Wicca is a diverse and evolving tradition, and not all Wiccans practice witchcraft. Additionally, witchcraft can be practiced outside of the Wiccan tradition and may have different meanings and practices depending on the individual or culture.
