13 Signs that You Have the Witchblood

When you are born with the Witchblood there are things that move you, things that other people may not notice or may not care about, but that mean a great deal to you. These are usually natural things, for a true Witch lives in alignment with Faery and Faery is part of the natural world. Despite what computer games may suggest to you, The Faery flees metal, synthetics, unbalanced electro-magnetic waves, and will not appear where there is not an open and receptive heart.

These are the signs by which we are known and by which we know ourselves:

1:  You love the moon and all things related to the moon: Night, mirrors, pools of water,  owls, cats, the sound of frogs and crickets singing, pearls, crystals, willow trees, night blooming jasmine….

2:You love what is old and speaks of the past: Castles, ruins, stately homes, old books especially magic books, antiques, fairy tales, folk ballads…

3: You respond to silence and can sit for long periods of time in the woods, or by the sea, just communing with the trees and sky, the animals and the spirits of the place. You recognize ‘power spots’ and go back to them frequently for refreshment.

4: You are drawn to graveyards and tombs, the older the better, for you are in touch with the ancestors, those who have gone before and you know instinctively that the dead are still alive in a parallel dimension.

5: You dress differently to others. You feel the need to be in a distant time and place and so express yourself  as if you were already there. Your visions of the Faery will be clothed like you because the time and place you long for is Faery.

6: Animals are attracted to you and you to them. They sense your strong connection to nature and the Faery and so they trust you. Horses and cats, dogs and deer will approach you and wish to speak with you. You may know how to do this even if it happens below the level of awareness.

7: You are interested in Tarot cards, Astrology and perhaps you watch the stars and know the constellations. Divination is constantly fascinating for you. The movements of these things through Gypsy caravans and passed through the hands of Magicians with their magical books of sigils and talismans are your favorite areas of study.

8: Solitude is you friend for it allows you to commune with your soul where all things come together in the still center. From that place you are able to create, to bring forth the images of beauty and poetry that live within you that are the gift of your dual perception through Nature to Faery.

9: You are creative and artistic, a born poet, a painter of visions, a singer of strange songs. Especially if you are Green Ray, you are compelled to express what is in through the arts.

10: You can feel alone in a crowd, alien to the others, as if the people around you are less real that whatever it is that calls you from over the low, dark hills. Feeling misunderstood and as if you are not from this world is a common  phenomenon.

11: You are very sensitive, empathic and kind unless your empathy has been terrible abused and your sensitivity trampled and scorned. Then you can become very vindictive and seek the left hand path.

12:Stories and books about weird things, fantasy, fairy tales, ghost stories, sci-fi, dark fantasy and horror, erotica, lives of outsiders, arcane subjects and history bring you endless enjoyment. But this is not because it is fashionable, or only a whim. This is because the authors of these works are like-minded souls who experience and understand the same things you do  and are able to share worlds that you know exist, even when many dismiss them as ‘imaginary.’

13: The main three religions are uncomfortable for you. You cannot accept that thee is only one God, cannot believe in a philosophy that leaves out the earth and the rest of the living things to focus soley on mankind. You know in the depths of your soul that the Earth is our Mother from whom we are born and to whom we return, and to whom we owe our very life in between.

  1. I’ve bookmarked your blog for some more reading on my day off tomorrow :)

    A lot of what you’ve listed here just spells me out. I dress differently to most of my friends. I’ve a cat that I feel knows me more than anybody else. I love just sitting and staring at the stars on a clear night. I’ve been told that I’m empathic, I sometimes get the saddest feeling when I see a stranger in the street. I have been known to have complete strangers either break down to me, or tell me their life story. My mum is very spiritual, and often tells me that I need to protect myself before going out into the world. At times I find the sadness unbearable. I love your blog, please keep it up! You seem really interesting.

  2. Glad to know this helps. Empathy is a tough one. It gives you compassion but the world is not so kind. Work on protection and take care.

  3. I call my spirit Elder Brother
    I have sought isolation in order to preserve my initial personality
    I recall events and images and dreams from a few months old
    I never feel alone when walking in the wilderness
    I love silence
    Feeling invisible themes course through me
    I feel deep sorrow at the loss of habitat and the suffering of our cousins the birds and reptiles and little furry things
    Except rabbits which I chase with my dogs
    Yet rarely kill as I enjoy the elation of the hunt
    i seek to be fearless and clear
    without projection on the Tao
    that I MAY BECOME FREE

  4. I am everything thats is listed here but i need help learning my path and want to embrace my abilites.

    Oh how the deer bellowed,
    Far in the distance a crow screeched and the waves crashed in response,
    A world of wonder awaited around the willow tree,
    And i weeped for the blind souls in the oblivion for they are lost,
    This beauty is a secret and as whispers of love creeped by,
    their shadows passed by unseen as in a trace not understood by us their creators…

    I love and understand everything that u ppl said and it explains a lot about me hope u guys like the poem ^.^ :)

  5. i cannot thank you enough for posting this. all of these qualities you have listed explain me thoroughly and perfectly. i’m completely serious. i just got a bit teary eyed! ever since i was little i would have vivid images of events that would happen in the future. everything from meeting a new person to just a glimpse of a conversation with someone. i never really gave it much thought but i always felt different. i’ve grown up in a catholic family and so, some of these things i’ve kept to myself. my grandmother on my dad’s side. she practices some sort of witchcraft. she hadn’t told me about it though. she said i was different and she’s always silently been there watching me, but hasn’t said much. i’m 21 and i’ve just began looking into my different qualities.for years i tried to ignore these qualities in myself but i am always drawn back. your article just came up and it’s been so helpful. please keep writing always!

  6. omg. i am a total witch! everything that you wrote relates to me! I’ve always knew i was different in some way. thanks this really helped!

  7. I’m glad this helped Kimberly. It is so powerful when you feel these differences and find a context for them. I think some of us are inter-dimensional beings and very much of the earth spirit. Stay true to yourself.
