About This Quiz

"Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble ..." Casual fans of the witching world know that it was Shakespeare's "Macbeth" that gave us these enchanting words. Those who know a bit more about sorcery, magic or the occult may even remember that the three sorceresses in this iconic play added eye of newt and toe of frog to their pot. Self-proclaimed witches might think they can recreate this bubbling potion themselves and might even know where to find the required scale of dragon or root of hemlock to complete this charm. Real witches, however, well, real witches would know how to do all this without even checking the recipe. They would also know how to administer this concoction and slip off into the night sky without being spotted by mere mortals.

Yet modern witches are so much more than how they've been portrayed in media, even in the images created by literary greats like Shakespeare. Today's witches can blend right in with non-magic folks, and they might only show their supernatural abilities when they're around their own kind — or when someone sends their temper flaring. Of course, just as most people are good, so are most who count themselves as part of the witching community. Many embrace nature, Pagan customs or Wicca, which is now an officially recognized religion in many countries. 

Do you think you've got weird and wonderful powers, or that it's time you take your metaphysical or spiritual side more seriously? First, take our quiz to find out where you fall on the witching scale!
