What Wiccans believe in regards to deity can be different. What I mean is there is no one way for Wiccans to believe. We are generally called Polytheistic which means we believe in more than one deity. It seems that most Wiccans believe in a God and a Goddess. Those who honour specific Gods and Goddesses (e.g. Aphrodite, Bacchus, Isis, Diana etc...) tend to think of them as aspects of the God or Goddess, not as separate Gods and Goddesses. Some, including me, think of the God and Goddess as one full being, not as two separate beings. To me, it makes sense to call them God and Goddess because we are used to putting things into male or female categories. This is changing slowly but is still a prevalent way of understanding things.
This page is about the female aspects of deity.
The Goddess is normally portrayed by a moon:

Although I tend to subscribe
to different patheons, I really like Egyptian.
My favourite goddess is Isis. She is the goddess of motherhood and magic.

The Goddess Film
A flash film about Goddesses. 10 Minutes long, need Shockwave to play. Could be better quality but still worth a watch.
The Charge of the Goddess
The Charge of the
Goddess is attributed to Doreen Valiente,
a student of Gerarld Gardner. The poem, originally found in the Gardnerian
Book of Shadows, is now loved by all witches as a statement of our
reverence for the Goddess and Nature.
