Canaan, VT (PRWEB) October 10, 2013
October features the much-loved Halloween season; where witches are a common symbol of ugliness, evil and other misconceptions. This time of year provides a great opportunity to explore both Wicca and witchcraft, and share knowledge about what they actually are, the differences between them, and what their adherents actually believe.
The Wiccan faith uses a lot of interesting ritual tools and symbolism in their practices. Some are more widely recognized and unfortunately, more misunderstood than others – most notably the Pentagram. In many Hollywood tales, this symbol is associated with dark arts, black magic and Satanism.
Wiccans who commonly wear this symbol are often subjected to these misunderstandings, when the truth of the symbol's meaning for them is anything but dark or evil. In fact, the pentagram has a complex and rich history throughout many traditions, including Christianity. In neo-pagan belief systems like Wicca, the circle represents inclusion - the whole of creation. The points represent the spirit and each of the different elements that work together in unity.
Other Wiccan tools highlighted in October include:
Athames: These beautiful, elaborate ritual knives are carved from Selenite stone and used to direct and control energies during rituals.
Cauldrons: This widely known image is often associated with witches and Halloween. In Wicca, the cauldron represents the womb of the Goddess and is used for a variety of purposes. The New Age Source offers gorgeous, durable cast-iron cauldrons in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Incense & Holders: Incense provides the smoke used to purify ritual tools after use. Brass or stone pentagram incense burners look beautiful on any altar.
There are many interesting concepts to Wicca. The New Age Source invites you to explore these rituals and traditions. Take time this month to discover the differences between Wicca and witchcraft and the common myths surrounding them. Explore Wiccan ritual tools and the true meaning behind Halloween, or Samhain.
