QUESTION - How do I know what type of witch I am? I am obviously a beginner and I'm having some trouble in my practices. I feel like I've been kind of searching in the dark.
ANSWER - We covered quite a bit of this in this question here so have a read and I think it will point you in the right direction.
I really feel strongly that on coming to the craft a witch shouldn’t worry too much about giving herself a label as to what kind of witch she is. Most of us don’t fall into any single category – we all have strengths that don’t allow us to be easily pigeon holed. I think that it is really important to be true to your own nature as trying to pigeon hole yourself to fit a specific definition means you might overlook things that don’t fit into your chosen category and as a result you are a poorer witch for intentionally choosing not to work on some of your skills.
The best thing to do is to start with some reading around the craft. Try and get a real mix of biographical accounts, modern (101 witchcraft lol) and traditional texts throughout the ages. Then look at joining a forum and chatting with other witches about what they do and what works for them. Forums are a great idea because they usually have such a range of experience from absolute beginner to pretty advanced practitioner and even if you don’t feel confident enough to contribute much in the beginning just reading through the forum chats will give you an idea of how other witches got started.
