To anyone that can give me some insight:


I have been studying Wicca, Paganism, and New Age for about 9 months now.  I am on a quest to find my spiritual path.  I would be very appreciative if someone could give me a good explaination of the differences between Wicca and Paganism/Neopaganism.  I have read a lot, but they seem so similiar in many ways, but I cannot find anything definitive that really lays out the differences.  Thanks so much in advance!

Bright Blessing,


for me - pagan is sort of an umbrella term for nature based spirituality/religion. it can have celtic, egyptian, norse themes...

wicca is a from of paganism and of course to make things harder - there are different types of wicca. however -i'm pretty sure all wicca paths have in common is the idea of karma - what you do/send out will come back to you wether good or bad thus comes the phrase "an it harm none, do what ye will" meaning - do what you want as long as it doesnt harm anyone.

wicca is also NOT what people see on tv or in the movies - worshiping satan, casting hexes etc, cuz well, that is essentially against the one code among witches/

i understand it can be tough, i'm also a bit of a seeker, still not 100% on my decision... youtube can be great - CharmingPixieFlora has been a great help for me, so i recomend checking her out, shes an eclectic wiccan... um - yeah, suppose thats all i have to say for now.

Dead thread.  Dead, dead thread.

Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.
