Wicca in a Nutshell

Wicca is a gentle, earth-based religion. While there are many different paths within this religion, most Wiccans believe that Divinity is both masculine and feminine, and all Wiccans revere the earth and nature as sacred and divine.
Most Wiccans follow a principle called the Wiccan Rede, which states, "An it harm none, do as you will." This means that the religion puts no limitations on the practitioner except for the obligation to not hurt anyone - including the practitioner!
Devil-free Craft - Is devil worship part of the Wicca religion?One of the most common misconceptions about the Wicca religion is that it involves devil worship. On the contrary, there is no satanic form in Wicca, no evil to blame for life´s low points. Wiccans believe in balance, not dichotomy, meaning that everything has its place and purpose; nothing is "good" or "bad", per se, except perhaps on a situational basis: for a mundane example, food is neither good nor bad, but it is "good" when you are hungry and "bad" when you are full (or perhaps on a diet). Practicing Wicca involves putting one´s life (including the environment) in good order, and the concept of evil or a devil figure does not enter into this way of life at all.
