Though sometimes used interchangeably, "Wicca" and "Witchcraft" are not the same
thing. The confusion comes, understandably, because both practitioners of Wicca and
practitioners of Witchcraft are called witches. All practitioners of Wicca are witches, but
not all witches are practitioners of Wicca. "Wicca" refers to a religion. The term can refer
to the initiatory tradition, where initiates are assigned a degree and generally work in
covens, or to Solitary Wicca, where practitioners’ self dedicate themselves to the tradition
and generally practice on their own. Both Initates and Solitary Wiccans worship the
Goddess and/or the God, and both celebrate the Sabbats and Esbats. "Withcraft," or "The
Craft," on the other hand, requires no belief in specific gods or goddesses and is not a
specific spiritual path. Thus there are witches who adhere to a variety of beliefs and
religious systems besides Wiccan ones. Witchcraft, the casting of spells and the practice of
magic, is considered to be a learned skill that can be seperated from religious beliefs.
