Wicca religion and beliefs

The world consists of various religions and various religious ideas. It is quite hilarious that the God of one religion turns into a devil in another. One religion considers Goddesses as the equal or complementary part of the universe. While another believes that the goddess does not exist. Wiccans have their unique theology. Wiccan has various views of theology, but the basic belief revolves around a God and three Goddesses. Based upon this idea, other beliefs like duo-theism, polytheism, animalism, etc. have been conjured.

In the pagan world, gods and goddesses had their places, and they were thought to be complementary to each other to keep the universe balanced. When Christianity came, Goddesses lost their place. However, in Wiccan belief, male and female deities still represent the polarity that should be there to retain the world’s balance. If you do a comparative study of the pagan world and beliefs, you will find a similarity in the pattern of providing gender to the natural elements. In most pagan religions, the moon is female, and the sun is male. The earth is always female because it stands for the image of a mother.

A continuation

The triple goddess belief consists of a maiden, mother, and crone goddess. They stand for virginity, fertility, and wisdom, respectively. According to some of the Wiccan sects, the Goddess is more important, and others have criticized this belief. The witch cult worshiped the Horned God and the Mother Goddess, and Wicca is supposed to be a continuation of that very cult. The trend was prominent during the medieval period and is still ongoing.

According to pantheism, there is only one God who is most powerful and is the main power behind the universe. This God is an entity that no one can know or understand completely. In the view of polytheism, there is more than one God. Instead, there are many deities with their entity and rights. Another view illustrates that all the Gods and Goddesses are actually the manifestation of a single God and Goddess. In animism, the Gods are given the shape and look of animals, like the horned Godhead.

Believe in the afterlife

This animalistic manifestation of God is also present in the Wiccan belief. The afterlife is a mysterious area that people have treated throughout centuries and religions. Wiccans also believe in the afterlife. Some sects believe that the human soul is reincarnated in the same species for learning things, but others think the soul is reincarnated in various species. However, not much emphasis is given to the afterlife in Wiccan belief.

These discussions have been ongoing for centuries, and no one has ever concluded. It will remain in the same state, probably for many more years.
