The concept of witches has long fascinated the human population. Once seen as a frightening presence, leading to the witch hunts in an attempt to eradicate them and save the human population, today witches often grace our favorite books, movies and television shows.
This modern portrayal of witches, as seen in Charmed, Buffy, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and Harry Potter, shows a much more relatable individual with many of the same emotions, mannerisms and life experiences as that of their human counterparts. In fact, the tales of Harry Potter and his experiences at Hogwarts have swept the nation, earning millions of dollars and inspiriting people everywhere to hope for their own Hogwarts acceptance letter. The final movie in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, earned $43.5 million just in midnight showings. The franchise has now grown to include The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando and the website Pottermore, revealing never before seen information about the characters, and allowing its visitors to experience life at Hogwarts from being sorted by the sorting hat to discovering their Patronus.
Those who practice modern day Witchcraft and Wicca continue to share the myths, legends and lore that tell the history of witchcraft across the planet. A subsect of Paganism, those who share in these beliefs are highly in tune with nature, drawing from it their energy and power. They partake in a number of festivals and rituals, each focusing on thanking nature and the higher powers for their role in guiding their lives.
It is believed that one is born with their gift as a witch, however, not all witches are aware of the blessing that they have been given. Many will go through life blissfully unaware of the fact that they may actually be responsible for many of the abnormal coincidences that occur around them on a daily basis. While there are several ways to investigate whether or not you are born to travel this path in life, one of the easiest is rooted in the art of palmistry.
A science that was studied by our ancient ancestors, alongside that of astrology, palmistry is the ability to read the signs, symbols and lines on one’s hand in order to better understand the individual and their fate. Palmists are able to make a number of predictions including the likelihood of future success, one’s romantic destiny and how long the individual is expected to walk the planet.
Your palms can also serve as the key to discovering if you are a born witch. Experts advise that there are 5 specific signs to watch out for on the palm that would indicate that one is a witch. This isn’t 100% accurate, there are some witches that will discover their abilities only to realize that they do not possess any of these signs. These signs serve merely as a strong indication of whether or not someone has been born as a witch.
