The Witch Spiritual Archetype

The Witch has a strong belief in themself, which enables them to create magic in their life. Although they may not literally practice magic, they have an innate ability to manifest. They are powerful in your intuitive abilities, regardless of whether or not you have yet harnessed those powers and their full potential.

The Witch understands their power and the power of the divine feminine. The Witch often finds themself in the occupations of a midwife, herbalist, apothecary, healer, coach, or teacher. They are feminists and, if female, may even work in a profession that primarily serves women. If they are male, they may find they are deeply in touch with their feminine side and have mostly female friends. The Witch prefers to be alone or among a small group of trusted allies who are usually female. They have mysterious and powerful energy, especially to outsiders, but are deeply loyal, loving, and committed to the few they let get close to them.
