Most Wiccans believe in a single ultimate reality that pervades the
universe and is expressed in the Goddess and God. Most traditions
worship the two deities as equals where none deserves more importance
than the other. An attempt is usually made to reflect this balance in
the coven, although men tend to be a minority in the Wiccan religion.
One notable exception is Dianic Wicca, which worships the Goddess
exclusively and only women are admitted to the covens.

The "Triple Goddess" refers to the Wiccan Goddess in her three
aspects, Maiden, Mother and Crone. This perspective on the Goddess
celebrates her three main forms or appearances, while also adding
meaning to the stages of women's lives. All three forms of the
Goddess (and stages of life) are regarded as equally valuable and
desirable. The Maiden exemplifies innocence and adventurousness, the
Mother embodies compassionate love, and the Crone represents wisdom.

The Triple Goddess is worshipped in three of the four phases of the
moon: waxing, full, and waning. Some add a fourth aspect to the
Goddess to correspond to the new moon, such as the Dark Goddess.

The male God of Wicca is known as the Great God, the Great Father or,
most commonly, the Horned God. "Horned God" is a modern syncretistic
term that combines similar gods from a wide variety of pagan
traditions. The archetypal Horned God is based on, among others, the
Celtic Cernunnos, the Welsh Caerwiden, the English Herne the Hunter,
the Hindu Pashupati, the Greek Pan and the satyrs, and even the
Paleolithic cave painting "the Sorcerer" in the Cave of the Three
Brothers in France. There are also a number of related British folk
figures, such as Puck, Robin Goodfellow, and the Green Man.

In Wicca, the Horned God is associated with hunting, strength, and
virility. His imagery is of a man with horns or antlers. He is often
portrayed with an erect phallus, a symbol of the power to create
life. Another symbol of his sexual prowess and virility is the
occasional presence of cloven hoofs or the hindquarters of a goat.
With the Great Goddess, the Horned God is part of the duality that
makes up all reality.

In addition to the main Goddess and God, many Wiccans worship various
other deities, most of which are drawn from Celtic pagan traditions.
Eastern deities such as Kwan Yin or Shiva are also worshipped by some
Wiccans.

In the Feri Tradition, the main gods are the Blue God and the Star
Goddess. Alexandrian Wiccans "work with and worship the Old Gods of
Europe, primarily focusing on Our Lady of the Moon and her Consort,
the Horned One. Our Gods are not jealous, and Alexandrian initiates
may work with other deities on a personal or group basis as well."

With regard to the afterlife, Wiccans reject traditional Christian
notions of Heaven and Hell and most believe in reincarnation. Some
Wiccans believe reincarnation is eternal, in accordance with the
cyclical nature of the universe, while others believe that one will
eventually attain a place of rest called the Summerlands.

Another notable aspect of Wiccan belief is the set of Four or Five
Elements of nature. Some hold to the earlier Greek conception of the
classical elements (air, fire, water, earth), while others recognize
five elements: earth, air, water, fire, and spirit (akasha). Some see
the points of the pentagram symbol as representing the five elements.
