Spiritualism By Jerome M

Hi fengirl,

Thanks for visiting! I appreciate your questions.

I don't think labels are irrelevant, because they serve as a starting point for building identity.

"Wiccan" has become a catch all descriptor for all of the things you've described. If there is an unfortunate side-effect to this, it's that Wicca has become so diluted by poor scholarship and pop culture as to be nearly indistinguishable from the religion Gerald Gardner created in the middle of the last century. As I grew and learned more about what Wicca really is, I chose to stop calling myself Wiccan and instead began to identify as a solitary witch. (If you haven't read The Triumph of the Moon yet, please do! It may help you.

If you are drawn to a specific culture's pantheon, (Roman, Greek, Norse, Egyptian, etc.
), please respect and honor that culture by looking beyond the latest mass market (Llewellyn) publication and do some honest, scholarly research into that culture's history. Doing so may give you a deeper understanding of their deities by providing context (gods and goddesses don't live in a vacuum!)

Also there are many reconstructionist movements for Greek, Roman, Norse, and other original peoples, easily found with a few well-worded internet searches.

I hope this helps, and I wish you all the best on your journey!
