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.
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.
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, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

As we prepare to say farewell to 2022, we welcome December, a month of change and renewal to send us off with flying colors into the new year. As the last month of the calendar year, December is likely to bring some closure to the events going on in our lives and present the signs with the opportunity to sit down, reflect, and plan out their future. As such, this is likely to give us a chance to get our life together more, slow down, and enjoy the moment with loved ones.
Aside from the general vibe of the month, December is likely to be quite an active month for the planets, with key influences coming from Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter. To start, we will kick off the month with Neptune going direct in Pisces in the first week of the month, stirring up a dreamy and imaginative aura that is likely to help us find better clarity in our lives. Mercury will then move into the sign of the Capricorn on the 6th of the month, boosting our communication and pushing us to speak more freely about the things on our minds. A few days later, Venus will move into Capricorn, which is likely to put a focus on our relationships for the next several weeks and help us find more stable ground within them. On the 20th, Jupiter will enter the Aries sign, encouraging expansion, new energy, and passion in our lives.
Then, on the 21st, we enter the season of the Capricorn, which is likely to push the signs to become more serious about the path ahead and work to start planning out their future better. This is also the same day that Yule begins, bringing with it a powerful period of restrospection, transformation, and rebirth. To end the month, Mercury retrograde will begin in Capricorn on the 29th, ushering us to reflect and slow down as we move into the new year with a steadier and calmer pace. And, with Mars retrograde still actively going on until January, this is likely to slow our energy even more so.
As you can see, December is likely to be full of many unique energies that are likely to inspire many changes within us as well. But, to give you a better idea of some energies that may be present around you this month, today, we're going to go over what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout November and how you can adjust your life to make the most of them.
