Believe it or not, there are still a lot of witches who get confused with the terms witch, wizard, and warlock. Some assign genders to them like witch is to a female what a warlock is to a male. When we were still starting out, we were confused too.
If you are new to Wicca, let me explain to you the what makes a witch, a wizard, a sorcerer, and a warlock.
A witch is someone who practices witchcraft. This can be anyone, and this doesn’t call for an natural or inborn ability. This title is for both male and female practitioners.
The powerful witches are the hereditary witches, or those who come from a line of a family of witches. They are born with a natural ability to perform magick.
A wizard is a wise witch; male or female who have extraordinary gifts. They are well-respected and prominence due to their special skills and abilities.
Wizards usually apply science and mathematics into the mix and have laboratories and are known for alchemy. They like performing experiments and mixing potions.
The spells of Wizards take into account the complexity of Nature and the Universe.
A warlock is NOT a male witch. Many have fallen for his false definition which has hurt a lot of male witches who practice white magick.
A warlock is an evil male witch who practices the diabolical dark arts. He is a traitor, a scoundrel, and liar. But will form alliances with anyone if it’s to his benefit or to the benefit of the dark arts.
What a warlock wants is powerful for himself. He is not Wiccan and he has no regard for Mother Nature.
SORCERERS and SORCERESSES
Sorcerer or sorceresses’ are the most powerful practitioners of magick. They are very rare and hard to find. To become one, you have to have come from a natural line of sorcerers or have a natural power that makes you one. There is a natural power in your genes and it manifests itself in magnificent metaphysical energy.
If left unchecked, a sorcerer can go on over to the dark side.
If you wish to become a sorcerer, training under one will make it possible.
