Wicca is an earth and nature-honoring religion that celebrates the cycle of the year, aslo known as the Wheel of the Year, along with the duality of divinity. It stresses residing in harmony with all creatures and also the earth.It honors a supreme power which can be personified into males and femalesaspects as the Goddess and God.
