A Fun Witchy Quiz

Roman Goddess whos Greek equivalent is Hecate, triple phase and guardian of the crossroads and graveyardsEleven challenging and interesting questions to test your Witchcraft knowledge. Some obscure trivia and some common sense mixed together to make an entertaining, quick quiz.

The answer to each question is written in white directly after the question sentence. Use your mouse to highlight the white text so you can read the answers, or scroll to the bottom and click "Next" for the answer key page.

1. The majority of Mandrake root (mandragora) sold in herb stores and occult supply shops in the United States is not true Mandrake but is actually:

    • A) Passion Flower (Passiflora)
    • B) May Apple (Podophyllum)
    • C) Ginseng (Panax) 1. B May Apple- also known as "American Mandrake" this botanical has different magickal and physical properties than true mandrake (mandragora o.) The "American Mandrake" does not have the shammanic and magickal history of use but is rather considered a +purgative, +emetic or +vermifuge medicinally. Words marked with a + are defined in the site glossary.

2. True or False: For scrying purposes, very early Witches or seers would most often use either a crystal ball or a mirror for scrying. 2. False- Crystal spheres and mirrors were rare and prohibitively expensive for the average village 'Witch'. They would also have been certain evidence to convict a suspect of Witchcraft. The most popular tools were bowls filled with water, colored bottles filled with water, or hollow glass fishing floats.
3. An Esbat is...

    • A) a regular meeting of a coven of Witches
    • B) A celebration of the Full Moon
    • C) A term used by Margaret Murray
    • D) All of the above3. D. All of the above

4. The best method of discovering whether someone you just met is a Witch is to:

    • A) Try to discretely collect a strand of their hair from their clothing. When you get home, pour some warm water in a bowl, add a pinch of salt. Place the strand of hair in the bowl. If it floats, the person is not a Witch, if it sinks, the person is a Witch.
    • B) Say the Lord's Prayer and if the person seems to be in pain, the person is a Witch.
    • C) Look for jewelry with significant symbolism, drop a few very subtle hints in your conversation and if they seem to be responding to them, become more obvious as you are comfortable. Finally, just ask if you must. 4. C) Of course!

5. Ogma is:

    • A) A Celtic God.
    • B) A Hindu word meaning dogma.
    • C) A Druidic system of Runes. 5. A) Ogma is a Celtic God. Ogham is a Druidic system of Runes.

6. The most powerful spells are those that are:

    • A) Found in ancient grimoires and magickal texts and followed exactly as dictated.
    • B) Designed by or adapted by the individual practitioner or coven.
    • C) Taken directly from quality modern spell books and writings. 6. B) The most powerful spells are designed by or adapted by the individual practitioner or coven. In this way they are tailored to specific needs and are connected to the Witches' energy. Ancient and modern grimoires can be wonderful resources and will provide excellent examples to use as a spring board to your own ideas. They can also sometimes provide the energy of 'collective memory'. In other words, when a spell is repeated by many people over a long period of time, it becomes a type of 'doorway' to a particular energy pocket. Tapping into this energy by repeating a spell found in books can assist newcomers who are not adept at raising power, but it can also be dangerous. These energy pockets are rarely as effective as a Witch's own personal energy and if a Witch cannot raise enough energy to do a spell, they certainly cannot direct energy pockets they may tap into by using another person's spell design.

7. Hugin & Munin are:

    • A) Raven companions of Odin.
    • B) Female & Male magickal practitioners in Santeria or Vodun.
    • C) Druidic words meaning night and day. 7. Hugin & Munin are raven companions of Odin. Hugin is thought, Munin is memory.

8. What is the minimum number of Witches needed to cast a true magick circle?

    • A) 13
    • B) 4, one for each element
    • C) 3, representing the Triple Goddess
    • D) 1 8. D. A single Witch can cast a circle.

9. True or False: Traditionally, Witches never used drugs. 9. False- Flying ointments, medicines and other Shammanic types of drugs were used.

10. Which color of candle is most appropriate for a prosperity spell?

A) Red

D) Green

G) Black

B) Orange

E) Blue

H) Silver

C) Yellow

F) Violet /Purple

I) Gold

10. All are correct! The feelings, energies, and associations you derive from a color is of primary (pun intended) importance. Some colors may have a tradition of use because they are associated by many people with specific energies, however the most important association is with you!

11. All forms of Witchcraft were legal and accepted under ancient Roman law: True or False 11. False: "Black" magick or sorcery that associated with harm or death was illegal, however "White" magick or sorcery was tolerated.
