Written by best-selling Wiccan author Lisa Chamberlain, Wicca Magical Deities draws on the author's experiences as an active practitioner, delivering information in a clear, concise, and easily digestible way.
The God and the Goddess
Perhaps the biggest difference between Wicca and other religions is the belief in a dualistic form of divinity. Rather than worshipping one god, Wiccans believe in a God and a Goddess, representing the male and female energies of the Universe that can be found in all of nature.
Wiccans also believe that individuals can do more than simply pray to a supreme, all-powerful God and hope for the best. Instead, many Wiccans co-create with the forces of nature by linking their own personal energy with the divine through ritual and magic.
Magic and the Deities
Pioneers of Wicca and modern Witchcraft were piecing together what they envisioned as "the Old Religion." With little historical information available, these spiritual pioneers drew from the occult knowledge of prior centuries and ancient civilizations - this included the deities they worshipped.
This has seen gods and goddesses like Osiris and Venus essentially reclaimed by Wiccans, as well as other deities from pantheons of lost ancient civilizations. Many Wiccans call upon these deities during magical rituals and they honor them at various points of the year.

the content is great and informative. it gave me a solid foundation for my practice with options of who I want to study further. But it was obvious certain sections were replaced with different voice over work. the entire tone and volume of the speaker would change mid sentence. that made it hard to pay attention so I hope the producer does better on the next one.
