Which Witch Are You Quiz

Which Witch Are You?

What’s Your Witch-Type?

Much like everyone else, witches and their beliefs come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you consider yourself a witch or not, definitely interesting to see which type you’re similar too.

Examples I am probably most familiar with, and described only in basic and general terms, below include:

Traditional Witch:

Studying the craft in a traditional time-honoured sense especially in their locality. Many modern-day witches practice in this way as Traditional Witches. May include a Ceremonial Witch, strongly rooted to ritual and often calling on other beings.

Hereditary Witch:

The Hereditary Witch is born into the craft with practices mainly handed down through generations but still ability to work individually as well. Likely to be more traditional overall.

Kitchen Witch:

Someone using oils, food, cooking and regular goods to work their magick, rituals and spells. I always think of spells as recipes so could be anyone who’s ever followed a food recipe that technically has experienced this to some extent. The difference of course with a Kitchen Witch is that they are consciously aware of how to use and apply these skills to a variety of situations and enjoys doing so.

Solitary Witch:

As the name suggests a witch who chooses to work her magick alone or has yet to find a coven to work with. Blends well with other witch-types. Some believe that Solitary Witches are witches who have been reincarnated, whose knowledge and abilities become available to them upon entering adolescence.

Hedge Witch:

Believed capable of “hedge-jumping” between other worlds and a messenger is the Hedge Witch. Includes working with the elements, astral-projection and/or herbs. May be where the “broomstick” idea came from.

Eclectic Witch:

An Eclectic Witch draws on all different traditions, religions, practices and culture to operate. Makes their own rules. May or may not believe in a deity. More “free styled”.

Other Types of Witch:

Of course, a quick Google check shows that there are literally dozens more that are less familiar to me, including Cosmic or Dianic.

There are also witches that follow a certain founder such as Gerald Gardner, aka the “Father of Wicca”, Wicca being generally considered the modern-day practice of the religion of witchcraft within relatively structured parameters.

Reading through the above list is helpful if you think you could be a mix of more than one. If you’re more interested in just seeing which you’re most like for a bit of fun, I’ve linked to a quiz below on a site I like, MagiQuiz:

I got Solitary which didn’t surprise me too much but I’d say I’m probably pretty Eclectic too with a splash of Kitchen Witch thrown in for good measure!

Would be great to hear what you got too and if it seemed accurate?

What’s Your Secret Psychic Power?

What “Clair” Are You?

Said to mean “clear”, your “Clair” is what type of vibes or energies come through most clearly to you. Clairvoyance, for example, means clear-seeing so this could be someone who has had full on visions or premonitions or maybe even just snippets of information are seen by them that they aren’t able to fully understand the meaning of immediately.

Further Examples:

Clairaudient: Someone who receives their guidance, messages, intuition, and the like from an inner voice is said to be clairaudient.

Clairsentient: Someone who gets “gut feelings”, an empath who “picks up” on energy around them, other people’s moods or senses a connection to a person or building.

Claircognizant: Where someone receives their messages through an inner knowing often referred to as “downloads” or maybe someone who knows something that they cannot explain where that knowledge comes from.

There are said to be many other types of clair such as clairalience (clear-smelling) and, one I only learned of today, clairgustance (clear-eating!).

To be psychic is to have a way of receiving and understanding the information you are bombarded with on a daily basis which, in my view, is something we all have and use every day without ever really thinking about it. If you are able to believe that the universe is made up of matter and energy, then is it not conceivable that life on earth is capable of tapping into or being affected by those energies and matter in more ways than just the usual 5 senses of taste, touch, hearing, sight and smell?

It’s worth having a think about times in the past when you have just “known” something, something that perhaps you and/or others put down to coincidence or funny timing. What was it that you just “knew”? How did you “know” it? Was it a feeling, a thought, a song you were listening to?

And, if you can’t think of a time why not have a go at this Quiz I found (link below) on PlayBuzz. You might be surprised at the results!

I got clairsentient which really wasn’t surprising to me at all. What did you get – do you agree?

The Magick of Herbs – The C’s

The Magick of Herbs – The C’s

Feeling under the weather this week with a cold, I write whilst currently sipping on a lemon and ginger herbal tea which is most definitely helping when standard Western medicine (Sudafed!) really hasn’t. So whilst I don’t exactly feel like writing, I’m spurred on by the hope that some of what I write may help others understand, appreciate and make use of the magickal powers of herbs.

Continuing with our A-Z guide to herbal magick, this week we take a look at the Cā€™s. To catch up with last week’s guide to the B’s, click the link below:

Cattail Seeds

Cattail is commonly used in passion and lust spells and carrying some in a charm is said to increase a woman’s libido should she wish to. It is particularly good as fire kindling which is perhaps where it’s associations with lust and passion arise from.

Chamomile

A herb still revered today for its healing and sleep-inducing qualities, often mixed with apple and used in herbal teas. Peaceful and tranquil it can be used in love spells or to purify ritual tools. It can be added to a bath to either unbind from an unwanted person/lover and their energies or to attract new love. It can also be used by gamblers as a lucky hand-wash.

Cinquefoil (Five-Finger Grass)

The 5 “fingers” of cinquefoil are thought to be useful in attracting money, wisdom, power, health and love so would work well in related spells and rituals. Medicinally, it has been used as a tincture for bruising and to reduce inflammation and fever. In herbal teas, it is thought to aid with digestive difficulties.

Cleavers

For those wishing to encourage commitment and fidelity in relationships, carrying cleavers as a charm or amulet is said to increase one’s prospects. It can be used in spells concerning difficult love relationships to bind another to you. Can be added to teas, soups and juices to reduce bloating and has also been used medicinally to reduce wound inflammation.

Conkers

A much-loved favourite of school children everywhere back in my day! Conkers, carried as a charm/amulet are said to bring luck and prosperity to the carrier and are especially effective carried in a green bag, wrapped in a money-note. Simply rubbing a well-looked after conker is considered lucky in itself. As the shape of the conker is similar to testicles, they are also said to increase fertility in males.

Coriander Seeds

If looking to draw in new love, coriander seeds carried in a red bag with the name of the person you are trying to attract, are said to bring in lust and passion and would be a powerful combination with cleavers (see above). They too are a helpful addition to fidelity spells as well as being a charm against illness. They can be added to a bottle and placed decoratively round the home to increase happiness as well as being used as a purifier in divination.

That brings our brief journey through the C’s of the herbal world to a close. Were there any surprises? Personally, I’ll never see conkers the same again! Join us next week as we move onto the D’s….

As with any remedy or medicine, be sure to check with your healthcare provider before beginning to work with any herbs listed.

A Lovely End to the Solstice

It’s 10:25 PM here in Manchester and the sun is just dipping below the Pennines.

Photo doesn’t do it justice; literally took my breath away as I entered my bedroom.
