Witches come in many shapes and sizes, it is a gender-neutral term. It is only Hollywood that has taught us differently. It taught us that the male term for a witch is a warlock, but this is not true. A warlock was, in fact, a person cast out from a coven. Often they were people that infiltrated groups of witches to find out who they were so they could be reported and burnt. The word encompasses a wide range of people from varying religions and backgrounds. Witchcraft itself is not a religion, but a practice. However, there are religions based around witchcraft, such as Wicca, for example. To be a witch is to practise the craft in a way that calls to your spirit, there are no hard and fast rules here.
There are varying types of witches, you can be all or none, dependant on your craft, and how you wish to categorise yourself (or not). Wicca is one of the few paths in Witchcraft that are is a recognised modern religion. Wicca is also one of the most well-known paths that witches choose to follow. It owes much of its origins to Gerald Gardner, who developed the Gardnerian practice. The practice includes the worship of gods or deities, that represent the male and female aspects. It also follows the wheel of the year and celebrates seasonal holidays such as Samhain, Ostara and Yule. There are two main codes that Wiccans practice in their craft. The first being ‘The Wiccan Rede’, which states “An’ harm ye none, do what ye will”. The second is the threefold law, which states that any good, or bad, that a witch does, will come back to them three times over.
