Alt.Religion.Wicca.Moderated FAQ (v.1.8) 1 November 2008

In recent years Wiccan communities have seen the development of many
new resources. Through the internet in general and usenet in
particular, Wiccans and pagans have been able to share ideas and
information with an unprecedented ease. Alt.religion.wicca.moderated
(arwm) is a usenet newsgroup that extends this tradition by offering a
structured central forum for the beginner and expert alike.

This FAQ (frequently asked questions) explains some of the more common
ideas behind arwm and Wicca in general. As with the newsgroup, this
FAQ is a product of many dedicated individuals.

Modstaff would like to thank Rain of Teleport for allowing us to use
parts of the alt.religion.wicca FAQ as a basis for our own. Our
robomoderation software is designed and hosted by Igor Chudov, and we
offer him our deepest gratitude for his support. Modstaff would like
to extend thanks to Dove for compiling and maintaining the arwm FAQ.
In addition, we would like to thank the members of the original
steering committee that spent eleven months creating our Charter. With
the help and effort of these people, arwm has become an example of
what a concerned community can accomplish.

Questions:
1. Introduction
1.1 What is alt.religion.wicca.moderated?
Alt.religion.wicca.moderated is a Usenet newsgroup, created on 15 May
1998. The newsgroup caters to a diverse group of people of all ages
and backgrounds who are interested in the Wiccan religion and
Traditions.  It provides a forum to hold discussions and exchange
ideas in a moderated environment.

1.2 What is Wicca?
Wicca, (pronounced Wick-ah) is a nature based religion which
celebrates and venerates nature and life and worships the Goddess and
God in their various forms. There are many different "Traditions" in
Wicca, but the religion as a whole has no central authority or ruling
body, and it is without strict dogma.

There is an emphasis on individuality, as each person is essentially
responsible for their own actions and free to follow their own paths
and beliefs. This is not to say that Wicca itself is structureless.
Many Wiccans work with like-minded others to form covens which do have
an internal hierarchy, but covens often differ from one to another as
to their practices and beliefs.

1.3 What is a moderated newsgroup?
A moderated newsgroup offers a particularly structured environment for
participation in discussions by its members and guests. The
environment is administrated by Moderators who uphold the newsgroup's
Charter for the benefit of all participants and readers alike. The
moderating body of alt.religion.wicca.moderated is known collectively
as Modstaff.

2. Basic Orientation
2.1 How is Wicca related to Paganism?
Wicca is one specific religious branch of the various religions and
practices which fall under the umbrella of Neo-Paganism today (Neo
meaning new). Paganism covers such belief structures as Druidism,
Shamanism, Nordic and Celtic beliefs to name just a few. Paganism
often involves many of the Old (pre-Christian) Gods. A way to
summarize the relationship between Wicca and Paganism is that all
Wiccans are Pagans, but not all Pagans are Wiccans.

Paganism & Wicca offer a way of worship of the sacred as immanent in
nature & focuses on attunement and understanding of the forces of
nature and our involvement and interaction with these forces. While
alt.religion.wicca.moderated emphasizes the Wiccan experience, there
are similar usenet newsgroups devoted to paganism. For more
information, see alt.pagan and soc.religion.paganism

2.2 How old is Wicca?
This question is often a matter of debate among Wiccans, and opinion
will differ depending on who you speak to. The modern Wicca movement,
and the coining of the term "Wicca", is credited to Gerald Gardner who
revived Wiccan practices in the mid to late 1940's from various
sources. These practices became the basis for many modern day Wiccan
traditions. There are certain traditions that have been passed on by
word of mouth, in secret covens, or through families (called
'FamTrad'), that have survived through the ages to become part of
Wicca today. Others feel that their tradition and inspiration comes
directly from the gods. Whatever its origins, modern Wicca is a
constantly evolving and vibrant religion.

2.3 What are the basic beliefs of Wicca?
There are a couple of main principles that are commonly accepted by
Wiccans. This includes love for and a kinship with nature, recognizing
that everything in nature contains a spark of the Divine, and that we
are also divine creatures, who have a personal link with the divine
life source. Wiccans accept the reality of the polarity of the Divine;
Goddess and God, female and male principles and many find Wicca more
welcoming of women than other religions. Wiccans as a whole accept the
cyclic nature of life, phases of the moon and changing seasons.

Although many Wiccans may believe in some sort of reincarnation, they
may distinguish themselves from Buddhists in seeing life as a journey
or adventure without any desire to "leave the wheel" of return. Like
Hindus, Wiccans may pride themselves on their tolerance for other
paths, like Buddhists they may value personal insight and like Taoists
they may seek to align themselves more perfectly with nature. Some
Wiccans may separate themselves from the "New Age" in their value for
both "light" and "dark" aspects of existence, a do-it-yourself
attitude and a distrust of money or hierarchies of "enlightenment"
which seem to place spirituality up for sale.

2.4 What were "The Burning Times?"
The term "The Burning Times" is commonly used to refer to period of
the Witch Hunts and inquisitorial trials in Europe, roughly between
1550 and 1750, during which time somewhere between 20 and 100 thousand
executions were documented and an unknowable number of undocumented
deaths occurred. The term itself is a somewhat inaccurate reflection
on this period of fear and religious persecution. It does not
illustrate the many thousands of people, predominantly women, who were
hanged, drowned, pressed, beaten and tortured to death whether or not
they had undertaken any practices which would be understood as
witchcraft. Whatever the method, type or number, however, the victims
of the Witch Hunts are perceived by many Wiccans today as martyrs,
with the lessons of social intolerance and religious terror being
clearly highlighted.

3. Wiccan Beliefs and Practices
3.1 What god(desse)s do Wiccans worship?
Although some Wiccans focus on particular gods from specific world
mythologies, Wiccans may worship many Deities by many different names.
Most worship some form of the Goddess and God. Such duo-theistic
forces are often conceived as embodying complementary polarities, not
opposites. In some traditions worship of the Goddess is emphasized,
although in others the Goddess and God are seen as complementary co-
equals. The Goddess and God may be seen as associated with certain
things (such as the Goddess with the earth or moon, God with sun and
wildlife, etc), but there are no hard and fast rules. Some traditions
worship the Goddess alone while others see Divinity as essentially
beyond human understanding, with "Goddess" and "God" simply a
convenient shorthand.

3.2  What are the major traditions in Wicca and where do they come
from?
Aidan Kelly argues that all of Wicca derives from Gerald Gardner, with
some crucial editing and revision by his initiate Doreen Valiente.
Alex Sanders is widely thought to have acquired a Gardnerian book of
shadows, with which he started his own "Alexandrian" tradition,
initiating Janet and Stewart Farrar.

Other well-known traditions include Raymond Buckland's Seax Wicca,
Victor and Cora Anderson's Faery Wicca and feminist Dianic Wicca,
which emphasizes the Goddess as put forward by such authors as
Zsuszana Budapest. There are also branches of Wicca identifying
themselves with various ethnicity's and traditions such as druidism,
shamanism and so forth.

3.3 What are Wiccan ethics, the "Wiccan Rede" and "three-fold law?"
Wiccan ethics are seldom codified in a legalistic way, but may be
informed by some common expressions such as the "Wiccan Rede" and the
"three-fold law." According to most versions of the three-fold law,
whatever one does comes back to one thrice-multiplied, in amplified
repercussion. One short, rhymed version of the Wiccan Rede states
"Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An it harm none, do what you
will." Often "none" is interpreted to include the doer themself in
analogy to the "golden rule" of other faiths. There are no universal
proscriptions regarding food, sex, burial or military service and
Wiccans, as a rule, discourage proselytization (attempts to convert
others to a different religion).

3.4 What are "dedication" and "initiation" in Wicca?
These things mean different things in different traditions. Usually
"dedication" ceremonially marks the beginning of Wiccan study, while
"initiation" may mark full membership in a coven/tradition. Initiation
commonly takes place after an extended period, frequently spoken of as
"a year and a day" that is devoted to the study of the religion and
reflection upon its “rightness” for the individual, or may indicate
elevation in skill or to special clergy status. Some traditions look
on all initiates as co-equal clergy, while others have grades or
"degrees" of initiation, which may be marked by distinct sacramental
ceremonies, duties or expectations within the tradition.

Some people claim that "only a Witch can make a Witch," whereas others
say that only the Goddess and God or demonstrated skill can make a
witch.

Doreen Valiente was initiated by Gardner himself, but slyly asks "who
initiated the first witch?". Valiente and others assert that those who
choose to "bootstrap" a coven into existence (by an initial
initiation) or to use self-initiation may do so, citing the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights. Self-dedications are also quite common
among new practitioners and solitary Wiccans ("solitaries").

3.5 What is the Wheel of the Year?
Wiccans speak of the year as a wheel, signifying the cycle of the
seasons which turn endlessly. During the Wiccan year, there are eight
holidays known as the 'Sabbats'. Four of these are considered 'minor'
Sabbats and are celebrated on the solstices and equinoxes. The
remaining four, known as the 'major' or 'high' Sabbats marking the
beginning of a new season, on or about the first of February, May,
August and November of each year.

The names of the major Sabbats may vary between traditions, but are
generally known as:

Northern Hemisphere
Samhain (Winter) : 1 November-31 January
Imbolc (Spring) : 1 February-30 April
Beltane (Summer) : 1 May - 31 July
Lughnasadh/Lammas (Autumn/Fall) : 1 August-31 October

Southern Hemisphere
Samhain (Winter) : 1 May-31 July
Imbolc (Spring) : 1 August-31 October
Beltane (Summer) : 1 November-31 January
Lughnasadh/Lammas (Autumn/Fall) : 1 February-30 April

Many Wiccans also celebrate the "Esbats", rituals for worship in
accordance with a given moon phase (such as the full moon), the dates
of which vary from year to year.

3.6 What tools do I need to perform a ritual?
This varies, depending on the tradition and individual belief, and
what the ritual is for. Rituals may be held at Wiccan "Sabbats" or
"Esbats" or to mark life transitions such as births, coming-of-age,
marriages/handfastings, housewarmings, healings, deaths or other rites
of passage. Some ritual items are common to almost every Wiccan
tradition, such as the athame (ritual knife) and chalice (ritual cup).
Others may be used by some traditions but not others: bells, brooms,
candles, cauldrons, drums, incense, jewellery, special plates,
pentacles, scourges, statues, swords, staves, wands and various robes
and cords. Usually a Wiccan ritual will involve some sort of creation
of sacred space (casting a circle), invocation of divine power,
sharing of dance/song/food or wine and a thankful farewell and
ceremonial closing.

4. General Questions about Wicca
4.1 Is Wicca the same thing as Witchcraft?
The short answer is no. Many cultures have a word which has negative
connotations like "witchcraft," often viewing it as a malevolent,
supernatural tool used by the weak, old or malicious. Some people use
the term "witchcraft" to cover more general skills, such as
counselling, the occult and herbcraft.
Some Wiccans call themselves "Witches", capitalizing it as a gesture
of solidarity with the victims of the Burning Times, but this is a
personal decision. Although many Wiccans today may cast spells and
practice magic/k, these are not considered an integral part of Wicca
by all Wiccans. Wicca is not traditional folk magic and all magic is
not necessarily Wiccan, anymore than all people who pray belong to any
particular religion.

4.2 Is a Warlock a male witch?
The use of the word 'warlock' to describe a male witch has been the
source of much debate in the Pagan community. The term "warlock" is
taken to mean "oathbreaker" and relates to an individual who has
broken the oaths that he/she has undertaken during initiation within
their coven.  The etymology has been traced to an old English term
w'rloga meaning oath breaker, from w'r oath + -loga liar, from leogan
to lie. As such, referring to a male witch as a warlock can cause
great offence. It is not acceptable to call someone a warlock, unless
that person has explicitly chosen to identify themselves by that
term.

4.3 Do all Wiccans practice magic/k?
That depends on what one means by magic. The occultist Aleister
Crowley helped re-popularize archaic spellings such as "magick",
terming this "the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in
conformity with Will”. Others may think of magic as folk
parapsychology or see the changes wrought as primarily changes in
consciousness. Ceremonialists may distinguish between the "high
magick" of ritual observance and the "low magic" of practical spells
(such as for protection and health). Almost all Wiccans, however, have
some sort of ceremony or psychological practice to better attune
themselves with divinity, encouraging insight and a sense of efficacy.
Others may cast love spells or other curses but no, we don't do it for
strangers on the net and no, we don't confuse this with stage magic.

4.4 Where can I get a Book of Shadows?
The Book of Shadows (or "BoS") is sort of a customized reference book
for Wiccans, containing useful information such as myths, liturgical
items, one's own writings or records of dreams and magical workings.
According to Gerald Gardner, such a book should be handcopied from
teacher to student but in practice not every Wiccan has a "book of
shadows" and few are exactly alike. Sometimes only initiates are
allowed access to a tradition's book, or it may be called by a
different name, such as "mirror book," "magical diary" or classically,
a "grimoire." There are many "books of shadows" available in print and
on-line (leading to the "disk of shadows" or even "directories of
shadows" several megabytes large). If you'd like to copy from these
sources for your personal use, you may assemble your own book, but
please observe copyright laws as applicable.

4.5 What is a coven and how do I join one?
The coven is the basic, cellular "congregation" for some Wiccans, but
is often very formal, selective and closed, aiming for an ideal of
"perfect love and perfect trust" among members. Most Wiccans begin in
less formal ways such as attending festivals, public rituals, classes
or more open groups (often called "circles"). Many Wiccans probably
begin and continue practice as "solitaries," whether before, after or
while a member of a coven. Solitary practice is a valid "tradition" in
the Craft, but some good places to find other Wiccans are on the net,
at public Pagan events or through occult, political or "new age"
bookstores.

4.6 How do I learn more about Wicca?
Reading is a great way to glean more information about Wicca and its
various traditions and practices. Visit your local book store or
library and see what they have available. If for some reason you have
trouble obtaining books through local shops, there are mail order
bookstores around which you can purchase via the internet or by mail.
There is a recommended reading list and mail order companies listed at
the end of this document. Unfortunately, books can't answer questions
that might arise, which is where resources like this newsgroup come in
very handy. You may also like to get in contact & get involved with
groups in your area and attend gatherings or festivals to meet like-
minded others. This is generally known as networking.

5. Newsgroup Guidelines for alt.religion.wicca.moderated
The moderating board of alt.religion.wicca.moderated is made up of an
odd-numbered group of volunteers and members of the newsgroup who
uphold the newsgroup Charter. The Charter of
alt.religion.wicca.moderated can be found as posted to the newsgroup
once every few months. Questions or concerns regarding moderating
policy or general newsgroup issues should be directed to: arwm-
bo...@stump.algebra.com.

5.1 General Newsgroup Guidelines
Alt.religion.wicca.moderated is an ecumenical and diversified news
group accepting posts from authors of any race, sex, sexual
orientation, age, or religious creed so long as the posts are relevant
to Wicca and follow the rules for posting to the news group.

The terms "Wicca" and "Paganism" are elusive at best, and there will
be no discrimination of posts due to differing opinions of what these
terms actually mean. While posts should be Wiccan orientated, those
non-Wiccans who post to the newsgroup on spiritual and magickal
matters are welcomed as long as their posts are Wiccan relevant.

Each post should include a subject line that is relevant to the post's
message. A message that is commercial in nature and Pagan orientated
should contain the prefix [AD] in the subject line, denoting an
advertisement. Notices and decisions of general decisions regarding
the running of arwm by Modstaff will be posted on the newsgroup with
the [ADMIN] tag, within one week of their occurrence.

Certain types of posts are not appropriate, and will not be
tolerated.  Inappropriate posts include (but are not limited to):
spamming, commercial advertisements that are not relevant to pagan
interests, Ad Hominem attacks (generally known as 'flaming'),
Intolerance and religious preaching (including superiority of one path
or tradition over another), and trolls.  These posts will be rejected,
and will not show up on the arwm newsgroup.

It should be noted that if an article that is cross-posted is rejected
by a moderated newsgroup, this article will not show up in any of the
groups that it has been cross posted to.

5.2 How does the moderation system work?
All posts to arwm sent by a user (members and guests) will be received
initially by the robomoderator, an automatic moderation center. The
robomoderator will do one of two things with the post: if the post is
from a pre-approved address it will be then forwarded to the
newsgroup. If not pre-approved, an automated acknowledgment notice
(auto-ack) will be posted back to the user advising them that their
post has been received, and their post will then be forwarded to
Modstaff for hand-moderation. It will then be approved or rejected,
and either way, a second message will be sent to the user advising the
status of their post. If their post is approved, it will then be
launched into the usenet system and end up on the newsgroup for
viewing and discussion.

The robomoderator is responsible for weeding out posts that contain
binary attachments, are heavily cross-posted (more than five cross
postings) repeated posts, and posts from banned users. It is also
responsible for logging posts that are rejected and the reasons for
rejection.

5.3 What does being a 'member' of alt.religion.wicca.moderated mean?
All new users of alt.religion.wicca.moderated are considered guests.
Anything that is posted to the newsgroup by a guest is 'hand-
moderated', that is, individually reviewed by Modstaff in accordance
to the newsgroups Charter guidelines before being submitted to the
newsgroup.

Membership is not automatic, and the guidelines for membership
approval will be reviewed every so often by Modstaff and posted to the
newsgroup.  At present the minimum requirements are if a guest has
posted several (seven +) on-topic posts over a period of several days,
and fulfilled all the guidelines of the Charter they will be
considered for membership. Being a member means that posts will not be
sent to the moderation queue by the robomoderation software, but will
be forwarded directly to the newsgroup.

Modstaff reserve the right to rescind the membership status of any
user, with a majority vote. Grounds that will be considered for loss
of membership are improper posting, not honoring Modstaff requests and
not following suggested guidelines.  Improper posting means posting a
message that does not follow the rules of posting as outlined in the
Charter, which constitutes abuse of member privileges.

5.4 Why did I not get an automated acknowledgment?
The robomoderator will send an automated acknowledgment (auto-ack) to
the reply address that it is given.  If this address has been changed
to avoid spamming (ie: munged or false return address) the automated
acknowledgment will probably never reach you. It is possible to turn
this function off so you don't keep getting replies. Instructions on
how to do this are included in the acknowledgment.

5.5 I can't see my post in the Group. What happened?
Once your article has been received by the robomoderator, messages are
queued until Modstaff logs in to do the actual moderation. This may
result in a short delay in the actually processing and moderation of
messages. Generally, if you received an automatic acknowledgment for a
post your article will appear, assuming the article does not violate
the Charter in some manner, in which case it will be rejected usually
with a brief note explaining why.

When your post has been approved it is injected into usenet from the
moderation site and propagated to the rest of usenet from there, and
is susceptible to all the rules of the way usenet operates as a
whole.

5.6 Alternative Usenet Access
There has been an interesting flaw noted among users that, depending
on their internet service providers news server, they may simply be
able to see some, but not all, replies in a thread.  In cases like
this, it is not actually any persons 'fault', just part of the way
usenet operates.

There are web sites which allow access to Usenet newsgroups posts and
subscribing will give you posting privileges. http://news.interbulletin.com/
and www.google.com allow viewing and posting to newsgroups. Archive
searching of newsgroup posts can be undertaken through http://www.google.com/.
Registering with www.news2mail.com allows newsgroup messages to be
sent directly to your email account. To post a message to the
newsgroup via email, submissions can be sent to
a...@stump.algebra.com.

6. ARWM Community
Often members share with the newsgroup works of poetry, crafts, book
reviews and experiences at events and gatherings. Discussion regarding
pagan books and authors is sometimes identified in the newsgroup via
the subject line prefix [Book Review]. These reviews are valuable
sources of information for those who wish to expand their studies and
would like some background on reading material before buying or
borrowing books.

If a post is thought to contain information for a specific section of
the community, such as a country or local political topicality, it is
recommended that a subject line prefix is included to aid in thread
identification. For example, information on a circle gathering in
Norfolk, England might be given a [UK] prefix, or a post with a
predominantly political nature be given a [POL] prefix in the subject
line.
