We after much consideration I have come up with this.
Wicca is a nature-based religion, close in the ideology to Native American and Shamanistic Traditions. The Knowledge of Wicca comes from the movement of the sun, moon, and stars, and the cycles of each season. Wiccans practice to align themselves with the natural forces of life. Wiccans honour and celebrate the female energy known as the Goddess in the form of Her Triple reflection of Maiden, Mother and Crone. And Her consort, the masculine energy known as the God, Hunter, Horned God, which completes the total being of the Divine Source. Wiccans recognise the innate presence of divinity in the natural world, each individual and the cycle of the seasons.
