The Craft: Beliefs & Worship
The Fundamentals of the Craft

All religions essentially acknowledge a genderless force, a higher power beyond human comprehension that we wish to communicate with and that we respect and request our inner desires from. Each religion has developed its own understandable and relatable forms of this life-ruling supreme power to which they direct their worship.

Since Wicca is a religion that is largely based on nature, it is only logical then, that the Wiccan deities are related to in both feminine and masculine forms, as all in nature manifests itself from this duality. Thus the ’Ultimate Deity’ is divided into God and Goddess. Different denominations of Wicca stemming from different traditions have differing names for their deities and differing forms.

The names you select for labelling your deities are simply a matter of preference. When addressing the deities, it is important to be comfortable with the names you use and thus selecting your own is a suitable option. A deity’s name is simply a label, what is most important is what the deity represents and the attributes that you are worshipping. Names are a means of identification and are personal as religion itself is personal. You may rest assured that the God or Goddess you are worshipping or praying to will not be confused as to whom you are addressing!
