Ah, another question that I get all the time. Wicca is a religion, different than some, but not unlike any. We have our holidays, our rituals and rites, our clergy, and our God and Goddess. Some of us live lifestyles that would be considered 'different', while others you wouldn't know were Wiccan. Our beliefs may differ from some other religions, but this is what makes us unique. One of these beliefs is reincarnation, the belief of being reborn into a new body after death. Most Wiccans do not believe in hell or heaven, but rather believe in a place where the soul goes to ponder over the lessons learned in this life. Once these lessons are understood, the soul is reincarnated, and new lessons are taught or ones unlearned in the past life (or lives) are retaught. We are a nature based religion, and most believe in some kind of law of intent (some refer to this law as the Wiccan Rede which states "An' it harm none, Do what thou wilt."). This means that, as long as no one is harmed, we can do what we want. Of course, should this law be broken, then most believe in a law of return (some refer to this as the Three-Fold Rule which states "...Be ever mindful the Rule of Three, for what thou dost shall return thrice to thee..."). This means that for every action, good or bad, there is a consequence. For example, if you do something good, then three times that amount of good will return to you (of course, this is the same for bad things). I hope this helps to answer your question. Brightest blessings.
