Most Pagans hear about the Wiccan Rede and Threefold Law when researching Paganism for the first time. This is because both the Rede and Law are everywhere. Seriously, everywhere on the Internet. There are 291,000 Google search results for the “Wiccan Rede,” and 2,310,000 results for “the Threefold Law.” It’s not unreasonable to think that the Rede and Law are discussed again and again on many different websites.
But this week’s question is this:
If you identify as Pagan, but not necessarily Wiccan, then what sort of ethical and moral system do you follow when working magick?
Do you follow the Rede and/or Law? Do you maybe follow a variant of the Golden Rule (do unto others as you would have others do unto you)? Or do you follow a personal sense of right and wrong as your magickal morality?
I realize this is a rather personal question, so I don’t expect many people to answer. Rest assured, no flaming or serious fighting in comments will be tolerated, but I would love if you readers would post your insights into this topic.
