Stregheria is an ancient Italian term for witchcraft. In recent times, Italians also have used the term Stregoneria or Strega for the new pagan traditions that originate in Italy.

Strega was originally very similar to Wicca in many ways; the practitioners used to honor a large number of deities but the Moon Goddess and the Horned God is regarded as the most important divine entities. The Goddess and God are considered to be lovers and are called by many names including Diana and Dianus, Jana and Janus, Uni and Tagni, etc.

As in Wicca, the followers of Strega also celebrate the seasons and practice rituals and spells to effect changes in their lives. The pantheon of Goddesses and Gods also include ancestors and deities that have specific duties or powers.

Raven Grimassi is a well known scholar of Strega who has written several books on this subject. He even won the "Book of the Year" award for his book titled "The Wiccan Mysteries". His award winning work also includes "The Encyclopedia of Wicca and Witchcraft".

One of Grimassi's ancestors included an Italian witch, Calenda Tavani, who had learned the art of witchcraft in Naples. Grimassi later supported the Arician Tradition of witchcraft and had many students including (supposedly) Scott Cunningham.

When the Italian Immigrants arrived in North America, they were exposed to a lot of hardship and hatred. As a means of survival, Italian witchcraft thrived amidst the violence and racism of the early years in America. Many of the practices of European Mystery traditions, theories of witchcraft from Aegean/Mediterranean region and the old religion of Italy was incorporated into the Arician Tradition into which Strega evolved among the settlers in North America.

The Arician Tradition was founded in 1998 by author Raven Grimassi as an introduction to Old Italian witchcraft when combined with the newer traditions.

Many ancient Strega rituals are mentioned in the Arician literature. In ancient Italy, the craft was usually passed on from the mother to the daughter. As one gets initiated to Strega, blood was exchanged and a new mark was made on the left thigh of the new member.

The witches gathered at night to perform the ritual of "calling down the Moon". As early as 30B.C, witchcraft in Italy seems to have been an accepted form of lifestyle and worship. The main deity was Diana, who was known in Greece as Artemis, Apollo's sister.

What is Wicca? Modern Pagan Witchcraft
★ OathBoundSecrets is an educational channel dedicated to distributing free information about modern pagan witchcraft and the occult. Please like our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/OathBoundSecrets ★ Quote from Wikipedia: In Modern English, the term "Wicca" (/ˈwɪkə/) refers to the religion of contemporary pagan witchcraft. Modern practices identified by their practitioners as "witchcraft" have arisen in the twentieth century, generally portrayed as revivals of pre-Christian European magic and spirituality. They thus fall within the broad category of Neopaganism. Contemporary witchcraft takes many forms, but often involves the use of divination, magic, and working with the classical elements and unseen forces such as spirits and the forces of nature. The practice of herbal and folk medicine and spiritual healing is also common, as are alternative medical and New Age healing practices. The first groups of neopagan witchcraft to publicly appear in the 1950s and 1960s, such as Gerald Gardner's Wicca and Roy Bowers' Clan of Tubal Cain, operated as initiatory secret societies. Other individual practitioners and writers such as Paul Huson also claimed inheritance to surviving traditions of witchcraft. The term "Wicca" appears to have developed within the Pagan Witchcraft community during the early 1960s, as increasing numbers of Pagan Witches learned of the Old English term "wicca", the etymological origin of the Modern term "witch". This etymological fact had been referred to five times in Gerald Gardner's book The Meaning of Witchcraft (1959), as well as in other early texts propagating Pagan Witchcraft, such as Doreen Valiente's Where Witchcraft Lives (1962) and Justine Glass' Witchcraft, The Sixth Sense--and Us (1965). None of these specifically referred to the Pagan Witchcraft religion as "Wicca". The earliest known published reference for the word "Wicca" to be an advertisement published in a 1962 issue of Fate magazine; in this, a Cardiff-based group of Pagan Witches advertised a tradition as "Wicca--Dianic and Aradian". The advert may have been linked to Charles and Mary Cardell because Mary was allegedly born in Wales and Cardellian Witchcraft had apparently venerated a goddess under the name of Diana. However, many Pagan Witchcraft groups would have adopted the deity name Diana and Aradia, these being the goddesses featured in the American folklorist Charles Leland's supposed account of a Tuscan witch tradition, Aradia, or the Gospel of the Witches (1899). Another early use could be found from December 1965, in the penultimate issue of Pentagram, the newsletter of the Witchcraft Research Association. Here, a small column on Halloween made reference to "the Craft of the Wiccan", apparently referring to the entire Pagan Witchcraft community. Although, the writer's name was not printed. It had probably been produced by one of the figures involved in editing Pentagram, such as Gerard Noel or Doreen Valiente. In July 1968, a group of British Gardnerians began publishing a magazine titled The Wiccan, while Welshman Gavin Frost founded the Church of Wicca in the United States that same year. In the 1960s, Alex Sanders, an initiate of the Gardnerian tradition, founded his own tradition, which became known as Alexandrian Wicca; he used the terms "Wicca" and "the Wicca" in reference to the entire Pagan Witchcraft religion. One of Sanders' initiates, Stewart Farrar, described "Wicca" as "the witches' name for their Craft" in his book What Witches Do (1971). The widespread adoption of "Wicca" in reference to Pagan Witchcraft would have brought benefits to its practitioners, who were widely maligned and faced persecution for their practice of "witchcraft"; an emotive term often associated with Satanism that had negative connotations in the Western imagination. By presenting themselves as "Wiccans" rather than "witches", he argued it removed some of the social stigma that they faced.

Wicca is the fastest growing religion in the USA. As more and more people get tired of the weekly reminders to fear God and to not think outside of the box, they turn towards new perspectives, ones which allow an individual to think for themselves and to change with the times.

Once the world was isolated, each tribe or culture believing in what they think was right and using the laws of Nature to keep themselves in check. For those still affiliated with organized religions, free thinking is still banned.

As a result, many websites have come up, each touting a particular theology or way of life. There are many styles of pagan sites that claim to know everything about the pagan ways of life.

As we eagerly search for the TRUTH, we can only rely on our intuition to believe what is written on these sites as gospel. Which sites can you really trust when it comes to matters or our own individual spirit and inborn awareness?

For newcomers to witchcraft and Wicca, one site that is newbie friendly and informative is:http://www.askroseariadne.com/

Here one can leave questions for a real witch to answer. Children as young as 8 or 9 have left questions on the vast Universe that is magick. The site tries to train people properly in the art and science of magick as well as give proper instructions on how to use magick in a safe way to make their dreams come true.

Another site that is full of valuable information for the serious Wicca practitioner is:

This site has search facilities and a book store. It allows the eager practitioner to decide which books to buy and use for rituals, etc. Also, it explains many of the terms on magickal living in their articles on subjects such as Celtic religion, Chakras, Quartz Crystals, Shamanic Symbols, Astrology, Witchcraft, Voodoo, Numerology, Astral projection, Tarot, etc.

Another site that has a lot of useful information is: http://www.anisoptera.com/
This site helps you find your own path. A grimoire with information on Auras, becoming a witch, Grounding, Sabbats, Rituals, Tarot, Stones, Totem animals, and other thoughtful snippets can be found at this site.

One site that is dedicated to the deep study and practice of Paganism is
http://www.shanddaramon.com/ Here, one can read articles on various subjects and a very informative, interesting and personal article on "Why I Am A Pagan" by the owner of the website.

http://www.witchvox.com/ is an amazing site that puts a new witch in touch with others who are already practicing Wicca or interested in joining a coven. One can search by country and then town or city to meet/communicate with other witches in the area. A coven is good because we get the right training and guidance. For those who do not find a coven in their area, they can be solitary practitioners or create their own covens.
