13 Signs You're a Witch

For many, the term ‘witch’ puts the image of make-believe, long-nosed, green hags with pointy hats and evil cackles into their mind. These characters were often seen riding brooms, casting spells, and working with black cats on Halloween night to stir up trouble. However, modern-day witches of today are very real and very different. In fact, they exist in many different cultures and religions today and are all around us (and no, they don’t come with the pointy nose and evil cackle - well, at least, most don’t). 


Despite what many believe, witches are much different than their old-time cartoon depictions and are simply souls that own their power through nature-based practices that can be followed uniquely by many different religions, beliefs, and cultures. Because of this, truly no two witches will share the same practice and will likely conduct their craft very differently. However, despite the differences, one thing witches do seem to have in common is many of the same personality traits and lifestyle choices that lead them to this path. And since more people are feeling a call towards the path of witchcraft now more than ever, we wanted to do a fun article about witchcraft today and talk about some signs that you yourself may be a witch and may not even know it. 


So, without further ado and in honor of the spookiest month of the year, here is a list of our top 13 signs that you may be a witch just waiting to awaken. 


Signs You’re a Witch

1. You have a strong connection with nature


To start, the first sign that you may be a witch is that you feel an unparalleled love and connection with nature. Not only do you long to be in it whenever possible, but you may even feel ill, anxious, depressed, or irritable when you aren’t able to be in it. When you are in nature, however, you feel instantly inspired, and ideas just seem to flow endlessly to you. If you feel stressed or anxious, the earth always seems to always have a way of relieving these ill energies from you and helping you to feel like yourself again.


Not to mention, you are also likely very environmentally conscious and have a deep respect for the outside world as well as a powerful sense that you must always do everything you can to honor and protect it. 

2. You’re highly intuitive 


Next, another sign that you may be a witch is that you are highly intuitive. You may experience premonitions, prophetic dreams, or may even have developed deeper spiritual abilities such as clairvoyance or mediumship. Not to mention, as a result of being highly intuitive, you may also feel things deeply and are likely a lot more tuned in and connected to the energies around you than anyone else.

 

3. You ‘feel’ people’s energy and emotions 
Next, to go along with the previous sign, you also feel the energy of the people and the world around you very heavily. For this, you have a natural talent for reading people right off the bat and are usually an incredibly good judge of character even without knowing someone. 
However, because you feel energy so easily, being around people can also be incredibly draining for you and can deplete your energy very quickly. Because of this, you’re likely not a fan of being in large crowds for extended periods of time and prefer to spend a lot of time with yourself. Others may even go as far as to describe you as an empath or a sensitive

4. Animals are naturally drawn to you

Next, another sign that you may be a witch is that animals are naturally drawn to you. Whether it’s a family pet or a wild animal, you may find that animals naturally gravitate towards you and tend to act very calmly and unafraid whenever they are around you. This can be seen in animals in the wild that don’t scurry when you’re near or when normally aggressive pets act calmly around you and not other people. Whatever it may be, you may just feel a deeper connection and understanding with animals that other people don’t. You also likely don’t look at them as a pet but as a soul and find mutual respect, equality, and understanding within them. 


5. You have an interest in holistic practices 
Next up, you may also have a natural pull to holistic practices. This may have been something you’ve been drawn to your entire life or suddenly out of nowhere, but you have become very curious about these practices. This includes a sudden interest in home remedies, herbal or natural medicine, teas, acupuncture, and more. On top of that, following energy healing practices such as yoga, meditation, and crystal healing may also be of interest to you. 

6. You’re a natural healer 


Next, another sign that you may be a witch is that you are a natural healer. When we say this, it has different definitions for everyone; however, it could simply just mean that you want to do things that will benefit society, as well as help the people around you. You are likely the friend or the person in your family that others come to for help and advice, and many likely seek comfort in your words. You may also be involved in teaching healing practices such as meditation or yoga or may even be interested in other healing work as a nurse, doctor, or therapist. 


Whatever it may be, you just have a natural act for offering words of wisdom and encouragement to those around you and always know exactly the right thing to say.

7. You feel deeply connected to the moon


Next, another sign that you may be a witch is that you feel connected to the cycles of the moon. Throughout time, witches have long been associated with full moons, and it’s not without reason. In fact, the power of the moon is considered to be a guiding light in many practices for witches and is a natural point on which many spells, rituals, and healing practices are based. Because of this, gazing at the moon or standing in its light may also help you to feel more grounded, cleansed, and lifted up. 

8. Storms energize you


Next, another big sign that you may be a witch is that you are energized by storms, wind, and weather changes. Unlike a lot of people who often feel down when the weather patterns change, you feel rejuvenated and want to spend as much time as possible in it. Whether it’s lightning strikes, rain showers, or snowstorms, there’s just something about storms that help to energize you and get your mind spinning with new creative ideas and inspiration, leaving you feeling grounded, cleansed, and rejuvenated like no other. 

9. You love to collect things from nature


Next, another sign that you may be a witch is if you have a love of collecting things from the natural world. This could be crystals, plants, shells, rocks, leaves, pinecones, or other pieces from nature. Whatever it may be, having a collection of this in your home helps you to feel more grounded in your space and more like yourself. Not to mention, you may just find it to be incredibly healing and a necessary element in your space overall.


10. You’re fascinated by the occult


Next, in one way or another, you may find yourself fascinated with the occult. This includes everything from the paranormal to astrology, witchcraft to magick, myths to legends, and even spell and rituals. You are also likely deeply fascinated with the origins of ancient societies and love to look into all their spiritual practices and culture in movies, documentaries, and books. 

11. You’re able to ‘manifest’ or draw things into your life


Next, you may also have this innate ability to be able to manifest things into your life when you are fully emotionally and energetically invested in it. When we use the term ‘manifest,’ we mean that a lot of times, when you really want something to happen, you are able to draw it into your life subconsciously. The same goes for if you really don’t want something to happen; you are oftentimes able to keep it away just by focusing on it. 


This is likely something you’ve experienced a lot as a child and throughout your life and is just another way that witches cast energetic intentions out into the world to draw certain energies closer or farther away from them. 

12. You see a deeper meaning behind things


Next, another sign that you may be a witch is that you see a deeper meaning for the things all around you. You tend to move through life with the belief that everything happens for a reason and that there is something deeper to look at beyond the surface of a problem or situation. As a result, you also likely pay attention to recurring numbers and symbols around you and believe that there is an important message waiting to be uncovered. 

13. You’re just different


And lastly, another sign that you may be a witch is that you just feel different. You may feel like an old soul, and are often the outsider to those around you, and may tend to have a much different point of view on situations and problems than the majority. Your mind may be open to pondering the depths of magic and the deeper enigmas of life, while other people seem to be caught up in drama, gossip, and other small mundane things. 


While these details and situations are different for everyone, there’s no doubt in the fact that you are very unlike most of the people around you, and you aren’t afraid to own that.

Conclusion


Overall, every witch is different and may show none or all of these signs. However, if you’re drawn to witchcraft, and you’re reading this article right now to find out the truth, you are most likely a witch. Let’s just say witchcraft isn’t a topic that typically pops up in normal everyday conversations, so if you’re feeling pulled to it from out of the blue and find empowerment or comfort in it, that may be a sign that you should start looking deeper into its practices to see why you feel such a pull to it.


Above all else, while these weren’t all the signs that you may be a witch, we hope this article has helped to shed some light on the answers you seek to help to guide you to exactly where you need to be on your divine journey.

This just validates what I already knew. I have always been different, and felt different and most of my peers growing up described me as weird and that never bothered me.

I scored yes on every marker. I have known this since I was a child, I think that on some level, every witch recognizes what we are.

I most definitely resonate strongly with all thirteen points, through and through. I’ve known about my attributes for as long as I can remember; long before my maternal grandfather traced our family tree to a coven in Scotland that was driven out in the 1600s. The castle still stands in ruins along the shore of a loch and the Pagan blood flows in my veins.Thank you for this beautifully written piece. Blessed be.

I can relate to all the points. Some more than others. Nature and animals definitely always attract to. Storms, love them. So emotional when my friends are in pain. Always felt like an outsider with my family and most people I meet.

Wowzah. Total Solar Eclipse of April 8, 2024 Through the Signs

March 26, 2024

Fan of the dilly-dally? Our relationship game is on the starting block for this Total Solar Eclipse in Aries. It’s up to you to surrender to your true love nature to heal a sense of identity OR keep the mask on until the next eclipse season. Let the Nesters unite! You’re not alone, as our collective psyche as a species is going to have this axis eclipsed. Think war & peace, sport & rest, Mars & Venus, Aries & Libra. 

What’s under review for this total solar eclipse? The potential balance of our true cardinal fire nature (Aries) coupled with our diplomatic and conditioned peace-at-all-costs (Libra) is up for an overhaul review (oh, is that all…). Why is it more pronounced for us this time around? Because the North Node of the Moon s currently transiting Aries and the collective has Pluto’s ingress to Aquarius supporting evolution at this time: freedom to be. Can’t put it any simpler!
