In honesty though, humility is hard. I often fall into the trap of thinking x,y,x doesn’t matter because I can work a spell to mitigate it. There is a danger that in a bias toward spell work you start to overlook other solutions that may be either simpler or more appropriate. Take if I fall out with a friend for example. I would be far better served to have a chat with them and find out what I’ve done to annoy them than I would be to leap in with a binding or a hex.
In another example, I recently found myself thinking up all sorts of potions I could make to reduce travel sickness. I spent ages on it before I had the bright idea of just nipping to Superdrug and buying some anti nausea pills….
I think another pitfall for the witch, again concerned with arrogance, is that when you start to see results from your work you can become a little over confident in your own spells. I’ve been guilty of stinting on the effort once or twice and then being surprised when I don’t get the results I want.
I use my craft in the world on a daily basis but I try not to ignore my more worldly skills and I remember that I am a witch, but not only a witch.
Pushing the arrogance aside is hard and I think most of can hold up our hands to struggling with it at times.
