First topic message reminder :

So, a friend of mine consulted with a family member, who happens to be Shaman, about some topics of Magick for me. She (the shaman) warned me about associating with the Wiccan Goddess. she didn't tell me why, but didn't hint that it was the most benevolent reason.
is there anything i should know about Wicca that isn't exactly in the brighter spots of the alley?
and is there any conflict between Wicca and Shamanism? another friend of mine (also shaman) told me that shamans and wiccans don't see eye to eye.

Lore in terms of written and recorded knowledge.

that's interesting, like how there are different types of crosses for different meanings, such as the celtic, crusader, and holy crosses?

The lore of Wicca in terms of recorded knowledge isn't that existant until recently. I actually have a lesson in my classroom you should view as I just touched this subject on it today Smile. Anyways it was largely passed verbally to keep a sense of secret, if it was recorded it was usually locked away in a book of shadows of the coven or person.

The crosses differ greatly. The Celtic cross was introduced into popularity by St. Patrick. as the "Driver of the snakes from Ireland" Snakes was another word for druid then. He stole it from the Druids which used it assumingly to worship the sun. As that knowledge of its proper use was destroyed during the Dark Ages in which St.Patrick existed and perpetuated himself.

The Crusader cross was composed of A different form of celtic cross which was absorbed by the Greeks, in turn became a symbol of the crusades. The four other crosses represented the cardinal direction and the 4 gospels of the new testament. Some argue it might have been the five wounds of cross, hands, feet and the javelin to the stomach/heart region which is what killed him.

The cross in general wasn't only celtic, it was Egyptian too. Only known to them as the Anhk which represents eternal life and rebirth. Sounds rather similar doesn't it?

Most crosses have quite a similar meaning, generally stolen or absorbed from Celtic, Roman, Greek, and Egyptian beliefs.

i just finished reading your lesson. that's awesome. there were a lot of loose ends of mine that were tied up in reading that.

are there different types of Pentacles with different symbolical meanings other than just regular and inverted? like the flower pentacle (i really like that one Very Happy)

There aren't many different variations of pentacles, theres a few. The pentagon for example is part of the same sacred geomertry/ But generally just the structuring and the designing artistic wise is what holds the meaning behind it.
