Wicca

Definition of Wicca

Wicca is another term for the Wiccan religion, one of the main Pagan faiths. It is Earth-centered and worships the gods and the goddesses of nature. There are many branches of Wicca — and just as many claims as to where it originated. The truth is that while it is a very old religion, Wicca today is more neo-Paganism than anything. You can practice witchcraft without being Wiccan.

Ephemeris

An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
