Part 1: Sea Witch Series!
—» Types of Witches
Before we can talk about a sea witch, let’s begin by talking about the different types of witches, this fairly modern concept is where different areas of the craft relate to the type of witch you are. For example: some find their passion is practicing in the garden by growing, digging and nurturing plants and herbs, so we call them a garden witch.
There is a wide range of types of witches, as there are many interesting areas of the craft but here are a few common types of witches:
- Kitchery Witch – Loves bubbling and brewing in the kitchen! This witch sees food and cooking as a ritual practice, where it fuels us and gives us energy from the universe, consuming food empowered with magick and intent is a way to absorb it. Cooking is very similar to potion and spell work, through mixing ingredients together and measuring out for accuracy.
- Hereditary Witch – Someone where witchcraft has always run in the family. The spells, practices and witchy tips have all been passed down through the generations, with each adding knowledge and building up the collection.
- Earthy Witch – Earth witches choose to be devoted to working hand in hand with nature and the earth, they are closely connected to the natural cycles and sense that everything has a spirit and all is connected. Nature always provides, teaches and instructs, as long as it is listened to, which earthy witches do very well. Gardening and growing, plants and herbs, comes naturally as the earthy witch is in sync with the earth. This skill assists in creating potions and cures for ailments.
- Crystally Witch -Crystal witches are always surrounded by crystals, constantly polishing, cleansing and working with the moon. They can name every rock and crystal off by heart, reiki and energy work is their thing. And they have a whole library full of books on crystals and healing.
- Cosmical Witch – Into everything to do with astrology, zodiac signs, horoscopes or celestial energy. So if you know the days happenings for an astrology sign other than your own or what the planets are currently aligning, this could be you!
- Divination Witch – Obsessed with tarot cards? Have too many packs to count? You may be a divination witch! If you are also interested in reading tea leaves, spinning that pendulum, learning I Ching and palmistry, this is the type for you!
- Boundary Witch – Also called a Hedge witch, because it symbolises jumping the hedge, going between different realms and boundaries. If you can communicate and send messages between the other world, see ghosts, look into the spirit world or have the skill of astral projection, congratulations you are known as a boundary witch!
—» But, you don’t need to be a type, you can be a bit of everything! Which in fact does have a name, it’s called an eclectic witch, but to me, this is just being a witch! A witch knows and tries a bit of everything, as we love knowledge and there is magic in the everyday things we do!
