It is not uncommon to search for witches to find people of likeminded beliefs, thoughts and ideology about life. Although witches’ practices vary in different cultures, witches unite in their strong belief in the power of nature. 

You just cannot simply judge a witch by how they present themselves. Some witches are bold, but a lot in the global population is rather timid, conservative, leaning on to solitude as the core of his or her practice. In this article, we’ll talk about the subtle traits to look out for when spotting a modern day witch. 

Before you read on, note that these traits are not limited to witches. You cannot simply assume and approach someone asking if they are a witch. Just have fun, make friends and keep an open mind! 

Traits of a Modern Day Witch

Trait #1: Interest in Crystals

Not all witches are addicted to crystals, but most of them are drawn to crystals. Crystals carry powerful energies that lift, protect or elevate the aura which makes sense for a witch to carry a crystal in their pocket or even use it as jewelry. If you’re trying to make friends with a witch, asking about their favorite crystals is your best bet in striking a conversation. 

Trait #2: Having a Certain Aroma

Witches have daily routines that may likely include a cleansing ritual with a smudge stick, an incense cone or a couple of essential oils. This scent is carried by their clothing which then becomes their personal scent. If you visit their home by chance, there is a big possibility that their house smell like sage, lavender, patchouli, or frankincense. 

Trait #3: Loves the Moon

If she/he talks about the moon, then she probably is a witch! The easiest way to spot a witch is one’s interest in astrology, metaphysics, reincarnation, and spirituality in general. You’ll notice this with the topics he or she initiates in a conversation. 

Trait #4: Witchy Tattoos

Symbols play a significant part in a witch’s life. Runes, sigils, and the pentagram are just a few of many symbols that are evident in rituals and in protection spells. When they have it on their body, it could be possible that they are constantly trying to attract certain energy in their life for a long period of time. 

Trait #5: Loves Nature 

A witch can be a kitchen witch, a green witch, an eclectic witch — you name it. But if you try to notice: all of them have strong connection with mother nature. That’s because nature is their home, and nature is basically where witches can directly connect with the divine, source energy.

Trait #6: Most Likely to Become an Empath

When you begin becoming sensitive of the energy you contribute to the world, you are even more vulnerable in absorbing other people’s energy. Not all witches are empaths, but witches have the tendency to become involved with others’ life because they are much closer than anybody else in their life. This happens during one-on-one tarot consultations and other divination work.
