Generally speaking, this is how I would describe the religious beliefs of Wicca as I was taught it: 1) Honor and adore the Goddess and God of our religion, Whose living body is the universe itself; 2) Observe Their holy days (the esbats and the sabbats); 3) Choose to abide by the Wiccan Rede (“If you harm none, do what you will”); and 4) Worship in a Wiccan style (creating circular temples of energy, calling upon elemental spirits and the Gods of our faith). There is no set Wiccan belief in an afterlife, although belief in reincarnation is common (based on observation of the repeating cycles of nature).

1. As many as there are Wiccans. It is pretty much a person path that covers many beliefs. The main ones shared, however, is that we can not and or will not control what others do or believe (Free will and all that), what is sent out comes back (@ least) three fold AND HARM NONE! 2. Many believe that we go to a place where we await the chance to be reborn, or where we at last are resting at peace. 3. Depends on the path one takes. 4. All are welcome. 5. It is a polytheistic (IE two or more God/dess) system which is more of a spirituality. It is also nature based. 6. Though not asked, we a. don’t believe in Satan or Hell, b. We do take responsibility for our actions, c. We don’t force our beliefs on others, but we will answer other questions d. We do care about nature and try to live our beliefs. Hope this helps.
