Degree

By

Definition:

In some traditions of Wicca, a degree system is used to show the stages of learning. After a designated learning period (usually a year and a day at the minimum) a Wiccan may be initiated into the level of First Degree. A Wiccan who has reached the Third Degree may become a High Priest or High Priestess and form his or her own coven.

Do I Have to Be Initiated to Be Wiccan?

Can I Self-Initiate Myself Into Wicca?

Examples:
Willow studied for a year and a day, and then was initiated into the level of Second Degree by her High Priestss.
