What’s up witches ! I have to start this off by saying that I don’t consider myself a witch. I am The Aries Alchemist. Dassit. Well, I’m also #TheVibeCreator but that’s another story. Yes, you guessed it. I am generally anti-title. However, I found it fascinating to know that a witch isn’t just a witch ! There are levels to this shit. And that’s what we’re going to discuss today.
P.S. Today is my 32nd b’earthday ! I am accepting all donations to helo my business grooowww 🙂 $AriesAlchemist
What Are Witches ?
I couldn’t decide if I was going to hit you with an official definition or my perception. So I decided to do both. Oxford says that a witch is, “a woman thought to have magic powers, especially evil ones, popularly depicted as wearing a black cloak and pointed hat and flying on a broomstick.” Where I’m from, any bitch with a couple candles and extra salt calls herself a witch. I think in a nutshell, it’s any woman who has learned to tap into her inner magic.
Types Of Witches
Everyone’s magic manifests in a different way. So there are tons of different types of witches. I’m going to name as many as I feel like naming before I don’t want to type anymore. Deal ??? Deal !
These babes practice one of two things, the witchery of her ancestors or the witchery of the community she is part of. They typically have ancient knowledge about spells, herbs and allat that can’t even be found in books. They like to keep it old school.
Half of us are kitchen witches without even realizing it ! This is all about making each meal (or whatever meals you feel like) sacred with your blessing and intention. In this case, your stove is your altar and your counters are your workspace. You have to use fresh ingredients for this one.
These witches care more about the outcome than the ritual. This is what I identify with most. If your goal is to find clarity, you’ll do whatever is needed to find that clarity. It may be a candle or something with the river or some food.
These women pick and choose whatever they vibe with when it comes to being other types of witches. Sometimes she gardens and other times she cooks. Every time… she’s a baddie.
Also called Green Witches, these babes worship Mother Nature to the fullest. They know like every species of plant, flower and herb out there. Their power is in the combination of plants they keep in and around the home.
You may have guessed, these women work with all 5 elements; fire, air, earth, water and ether or spirit. She may even only focus on just one or two elements. Eventually though, they tend to master all elements.
These witches pay the most attention to Mama Luna aka the Moon. The lunar cycles and the energy they give means the most. They often have tons of knowledge on the element of water too.
I first heard this on like The Magicians or Charmed. One of those types of shows. Hedge witches are usually rogue and do everything solo. They’re not as focused on tradition and doesn’t follow really anything specific.
These women gain their power from astronomy knowledge. Her strength is on the birth chart and how all of the planets move. They can decipher the types of things you’d find in the farmers almanac.
Hella Other Witches
There are many other types of witches who do other things. What type of witch are you ? …OR ARE YOU ?! Wanna confirm it for sure ? Get a reading 🙂
