From all that i have read so far, the belief of reincarnation in one form or another is one of the major beliefs of Wicca
Not that Scott Cunningham is THE authority on the subject, but he seems to be well respected here (plus, it’s the only reference I have handy at the moment
). In Wicca, A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner, he says the following:
“As in eastern religions, Wicca also embraces the doctrine of reincarnation. . .” But then goes on to say, “This isn’t something that should be believed. Through contemplation, meditation, and self-analysis, many come to the point where they accept reincarnation as fact.”
Later in the book he makes a very good case for reincarnation – in fact, he devotes an entire chapter to the subject - but again, he concludes with, “Until you’ve decided for yourself, you may wish to reflect upon and consider the doctrine of reincarnation.”
So, I guess reincarnation is a “major belief” of Wicca. But then, so is thinking for oneself.
