About This Quiz

Some say witchcraft is based in nature. Some say it's backed by science. Some even say it's not real at all. If you fall into the category of people who believe in witchcraft, you need to figure out which kind is the best for you to practice. Some types are way more formal than others. Those are rooted in history and tradition, and the initiation process is pretty intense. However, there are types of magic that rely on nature, drawing power from the plants and water that live on earth. Some practices are derived from specific religions, like Wicca.

Whatever you believe and wherever you get your powers from, there's no wrong way to practice witchcraft. Even if you weren't born into a life of magic, that doesn't mean you can't grow into one. Your powers might present themselves as a feeling you just can't shake. They also might not show themselves until you start reading and studying about witchcraft. Being able to accept it is the first step to pretty much everything, and this is no different. Once you've accepted your powers, how do you know which type of witchcraft to practice? Maybe that will just come to you too, but if not, take this quiz instead!
