Principles of Wiccan Belief No.1

The Council of American Witches was founded and then later disbanded in 1974. During the Spring Witchmeet of that year they put together a document they entitled “The Principles of Wiccan Belief”. At the time, as now, Wicca was greatly misunderstood as a religion, particularly in North America. The intention of writing the document was to clarify and somewhat to define Wicca. Because of the myriad Wicca traditions, practices and groups the statements are deliberately nebulous.

The first principle of Wiccan belief is:

“We practice rites to attune ourselves with the natural rhythm of life forces marked by the phases of the Moon and the seasonal Quarters and Cross Quarters.”
