As we look up to the sky and see the bright shining
moon, we see the same moon that our ancestors did thousands of years ago. Yet,
the moon appears different to each person. For many of our ancestors, the moon
was the Goddess. Her smile warmed their hearts and they felt part of the
universe. The sun was their God and his bright glow and warmth protected them
from the cold.
For others, the sky was the God and the earth was the Goddess or the God
was the stag in the woods and the Goddess was the bird in the sky. Each of us
has a different notion of deity. No one has the sole correct understanding. No
one is the ultimate authority. Instead, each of us is the authority of what has
the most meaning to ourselves.
We are Wiccans and our faith is in both Goddess and God. For each, the
concept is unique, but we share in the belief in the sanctity and beauty of
• Wiccans do not perform black or baneful magic. We believe that your actions
have consequences and what you do will return to you three-fold. We are bound
by the Wiccan Rede, to “harm none” in that which we do.
• Wiccans do not sacrifice animals in ritual. Most of us love animals, many of
us are vegetarians because we do not wish an animal killed for our food. We see
deity in all life, including animals.
• Wiccans do not worship Satan or any devil. Satan is an entity in
Christianity. We have no such concept in Wicca just as there is none in
Hinduism, Buddhism, the Native American religions or any other pagan religion.
• Wiccans do not perform 'black masses'. These are parodies of another religion
and we respect all positive faiths. Our celebrations are of the beauty of
nature and life.
Early in 1990, Iron Oak began as a teaching coven and since then has
grown, given hundreds of interested people a chance to understand what Wicca
is. Iron Oak began as a Wiccan church located in the Melbourne-Palm Bay
area. We have basic classes in Wicca called the Outer Court. When a new member completes
the classes and affirms to the church, they may ask to join one of the Iron Oak
covens. As an alternative, one can be a general member of the church without
affiliation to a coven. Iron Oak has workshops and groves where interested
Wiccans may learn more. If you wish to learn more about us, please feel free to
call (321) 722-0291.
