Buzzfeed. Beano. Pop Sugar. Brainfall. These are just a few of the websites promoting quizzes and listicles that will tell you what type of witch you’re destined to be. The belief around these categories or types of witches is so pervasive, it’s one of the most common beginner questions we see. Liz believes there’s value in these labels, while Aradia feels they’re too arbitrary to do anyone any real good. What do you think?

Ann Moura’s work with beginner information is so good if you like natural magick, faery lore, and “green” witchcraft. Check her out on her website! (Aradia has a couple of her books and her tarot deck, and they’re all gorgeous.)
