13 Signs You're a Witch
13 Signs You're a Witch

October 24, 2021

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.

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.
