Om The Wiccan Rede 

The Wiccan Rede blir generelt sett på som hovedregel eller veiledning i Wicca. Det forteller at du kan gjøre som du vil så lenge det ikke skader noen andre, inkludert deg selv. Man må tenke over mulige konsekvenser for hver handling og hvordan andre kanskje oppfatter det du gjør. 

De fleste hekser tenker igjennom en handling før de faktisk gjør noe i magiens vei. Hvis skade kan bli resultat av en handling, prøver man å finne andre veier til samme ønskede oppnåelse som kan gi mindre skadevirkninger men så ønskelig resultat som mulig.

Noen ganger kan det å IKKE handle skade mest.
