Rituals and Worship

Sacred Time

Cycles of the sun and moon establish a sense of sacred time for Pagans, while some ancient fertility or agricultural festivals are still celebrated today.

Sacred Space

A variety of mythical and ritual approaches to sacred space can be found within Paganism, including ancient ceremonial sites and mythical otherworlds.

Rites and Ceremonies

From elaborate Wiccan Circles to the simplest of "do-it-yourself" meditations, Paganism encompasses a wide array of ritual practices.

Worship and Devotion in Daily Life

Because it is less about obeying an external authority than about trusting one's inner guidance, Paganism fosters a daily practice of balance and harmony.


While no single symbol is universally held within the Pagan community, several are widely recognized and revered, with the pentagram perhaps the most commonly used.
