Wiccan Morality

Defining morality or immorality is always a battle of different ideas and conflicts. The struggle is ongoing because society still understands morality as a relative idea. If you can justify your action and do not think it is immoral. How can someone else decide if it is moral or immoral? Does anyone have the right to criticize your path while he or she has never been on your way? Despite these words, there is something called society, and you cannot possibly ignore it, as you have to live with it in any way. Though morality does not apply in different societies, the idea has always existed.

Wiccans do not have any ethical code, but some ideas also bind them. These ideas are not that much for binding them, but making them aware of their responsibilities or must follow. If someone has power, he or she must understand the responsibility that is associated with the power. As the good old fellows used to say, “ With greater power comes greater responsibility.” That is why the Wiccans believe they must take responsibility for their actions despite the freedom to act. If the action is good, the result will be good; otherwise, results can be adverse.

The return of the same force with triple power

There is another idea that the Wiccans had. Whatever action one performs, good or evil, they will face the return of the same force with triple power. If you have done something good, your body, mind, and spirit will be blessed with divine happiness. If you have done something evil, you will be thrashed by the rage of God. This belief is very much like (the idea of) karma, found in the religions and ideologies of East and South East Asia.

Throughout the years and centuries, the ideas of morality have changed a lot. Initially, what was considered immoral was no longer regarded as such. The full understanding of morality and immorality stands upon the ideologies and newer societal trends. With time, the perspective of society changed drastically. Modern people have ignored and denied loads of old ideas. Wiccans are not the only part of the society which has evolved. The rest of society has also changed over time. So, many new trends in Wicca spells can be found these days.
