Types of Witches: Explained!

Witchcraft is popular in Astrology as they rely on the celestial bodies for their magic. However, the witches that conduct witchcraft also differ in their techniques and types of magic.

 Witches Types:

Green Witch

A green witch uses natural elements from the earth to cultivate their spells and manifestations. From working with herbs, flowers, dirt, fire, air and water, a green witch is always in tune with the natural world around them.

Kitchen Witch

A kitchen witch is exactly what it sounds like–someone who loves to spend time cooking and in the kitchen. Spells often involve infusing their foods and recipes with intentions. Some kitchen witches will incorporate herbs with specific properties into their recipes to call in a certain type of energy. The process of consuming the food is part of the ritual and where kitchen witches combine the energy of their intention and manifestation with their body and the Universe.

Hedge Witch

A hedge witch focuses on honing their own unique craft and style of magic. Hedge witches blend various disciplines and magical practices but tend to perform their magic solo and incorporate magic into the mundane.

They craft routines and rituals and incorporate them into their daily life. The term hedge witch is a nod to the healers, witches, and seers who lived solitary beyond the hedge. Hedge witches generally have a deep understanding of plants and the natural world and incorporate the elements into their work.

Celestial Witch

A celestial witch is someone who works with the stars, planets and lunar cycle. From calling in new beginnings and setting intentions under the new moon to releasing and shedding what no longer serves them on the full moon, celestial witches pay attention to the sky at all times.

Eclectic Witch

Eclectic witches blend magical practices and form their own unique type of spellcasting and magic. There’s no one standard path for an eclectic witch. These witches might combine the wisdom of astrology with their green magic and use the lunar cycles to find the most fertile time to plant and tend to new seeds. 

Some will draw on their own heritage and cultural background and incorporate some of those magical practices into their workings, as well. This type of witch follows their intuition and knows that the sky’s the limit.
