About This Quiz
The history of witchcraft and witches is both fascinating and sad when you get into it. On the one hand, we have this idea of witches as people wielding awesome and frightening powers. Maybe they wave magic wands and cast spells. Maybe they use herbs and chant incantations to summon spirits or cast mysterious charms. In some cases, they're barely even human and in others, they may be seductive and dangerous. But these are all stories, and they're the fiction that we are entertained by. The real history of witches is grimmer than any fairy tale. While many people were accused of witchcraft over the years, the truth is it's likely that most of these women were just healers, women who had knowledge of medicine and herbs and techniques that could help heal the sick. And they were persecuted for that knowledge and made into monsters in the eyes of those who didn't understand. It's a sad legacy, but thankfully that history didn't end there.
Today, witchcraft and Wiccan beliefs live on. We're more understanding now, relatively speaking, to what it means to be a witch. And because of that some of us can even carve out a niche with our own sense of witch style to go along with it. But what element best represents your witch style? No need to cast any spells, just take the quiz and see!
