Witches

The religion of witchcraft, or wicca, takes its teachings and inspirations from nature.  The moon, sun, and stars are looked to for their insights and information, as well as trees, birds, animals, and seasonal cycles.  Unlike some film portrayals, witches do not fly on brooms or vacuum cleaners, worship the devil, or conspire to harm others.  In fact, people who practice wicca live by the Wiccan rede: “As long as you harm no one, do asyou will.”
