One of my favourite bands of modern times – Within Temptation – sum up the Wiccan belief in the Mother quite nicely here. Incidentally, I want that white gown! (Video contains some mild flashing – just to let migraine sufferers know. It’s not triggering to my epilepsy and so I think you should be able to watch it, but I’d better leave this warning out of politeness).
Each Wiccan has their own personal beliefs and practices. The line “She goes her way” is especially true of the Wiccan lifestyle. We each walk our own Paths as long as our actions harm none.
“She gives and she takes”. This is also core to the Wiccan Path; the Earth gives much, but we must put back. We can do this by planting trees, growing our own vegetables (which I am doing this year along with my husband) or a simple Altar ceremony to leave an offering (flowers, honey, milk, an incense stick/cone, a lit candle… the list is endless) and give thanks.
Or you could just go out into your garden (or to a nearby field or hill or whatever) and dance your thanks in the rain. That’s perfectly acceptable too. No, you don’t have to go skyclad (although if you’re a naturist anyway that’s fine) and you certainly don’t have to have sex with anybody. Unless you want to, of course; sex is, after all, a celebration of the beautiful human form and the God. It is also used as a ceremony in some Covens.
Even then, however, it should be with somebody that you know and trust, even if you are not in a relationship with them. Picking up casual sexual partners in bars or nightclubs is distinctly not the way of Wicca, and the God and Goddess would frown upon it. Wicca is not an excuse to be putting yourself about.
Some of us create flower gardens to thank the God and Goddess. Others observe every Sabbat and cook the appropriate foods and leave an offering on their Altar. Some create pot gardens on balconies or in window boxes.
There are many ways to celebrate and thank the God and Goddess. All are beautiful. There is no official ceremony, as long as whatever you do is filled with love and joy.
