Wiccan Spells: Wiccan Traditions and Wiccan Spells

Wicca is more than a culture of rituals, sabbats and Wiccan spells. It is a belief, a tradition, a way of life. In this case, the word ‘tradition’ refers to the many different Wiccan covens that can be found all over the world today. These covens are branches, or subdivisions of the notable Gardenarian Tradition, which was founded in the 1950s by British public servant and avid occultist, Gerald Brousseau Gardner. He was to later became known as the “Father of Modern Wicca”.

Every tradition is unique in that each has its own distinctive set of fundamental belief and practices. Even so, many, if not most, steadfastly uphold the customs of their predecessors. In other words, they preserve the old culture in a modern fashion.

Is one tradition better than the other? In a word, no. Each has so much to offer and from a different perspective, so it is up to the individual seeker to decide which tradition’s principles most closely resembles their own. You could draw upon the knowledge of one group or from many groups. That decision is completely up to you.

Whichever road you choose, go with an open mind, a pure heart and a desire for spiritual growth. There is much to learn and share, new friends to meet and many, many possibilities.

Lastly, always remember the threefold rule when casting Wiccan spells: "Ever mind the Rule of Three, three times what thou givest returns to thee, this lesson well, thou must learn, thee only gets what thou dost earn".
