Can you feel it? You know, that spooky thrill you get every October around the same time? There’s something undeniably alluring and mystical about the fall… and well, Donovan couldn’t have sang it better: Must be the season of the witch! Granted, we’ve never been the same since Lana Del Rey covered this 1960s psychedelic gem, but kudos to the OG folk singer for coming up with this spellbinding tune. Please have a listen if you haven’t already.
Grab your broomsticks, witches! If you’re not carefully curating the details of this year’s Halloween/Samhain festivities, then chances are you’re tapping into your big witch energy! “Who lit the black flame candle?” This, of course, includes binge-watching your favorite witch movies, because as Alice Hoffman said via her 1995 novel Practical Magic: There's a little witch in all of us. Care for some midnight margaritas?
In the meantime, read on for the Hollywood witch you are, according to your zodiac sign.
Aries: You’re Miss Eglantine Price, Bedknobs and Broomsticks
As the youngest in the zodiac, your cosmic resemblance to Miss Price has a lot to do with her being an apprentice witch. However, this didn’t stop her from taking the bold risk of aiding the British in the midst of WWII, which very much aligns with your aggressive ruler, Mars, also known as the planet of war. Miss Price somehow manages to take witchcraft lessons through a correspondence school, and agrees to take care of three kids who have been evacuated from London. The audacity!
Taurus: You’re Hermione Granger, Harry Potter
“Honestly, don't you two read?” As a Venus-ruled earth sign, there’s one thing no one in the world can take away from you, and that’s your self-confidence. In the case of Hermoine, she and everyone else are well-aware of her intelligence… and just like your brutally honest #NoFilter approach, Ms. Granger has no problem calling someone out when they’re wrong. Hermione is a loyal and devoted witch, but she’s also incredibly headstrong. When she sets her mind on something, there’s no changing it either. Sound familiar, Taurus?
Gemini: You’re Sarah Bailey, The Craft
Despite being the new girl in town, Sarah’s intellect and grit are some of her greatest assets. Granted, she’s also prone to overthinking things... but like you, it all boils down to her innate curiosity, and need for mental stimulation. This, along with her desire for a sense of belonging, is what inspires her to join a coven of witches. However, it isn’t long before she has a change of heart, and shows her fellow witches a side of her they’ve never seen. There's two sides to Sarah Bailey.
Cancer: You’re Samantha Stephens, Bewitched
Being a witch is almost inevitable when you're ruled by the moon, and Samantha’s magic is ever present in her family line. Similar to the spell-casting homemaker, you cherish your family more than words can describe, but you also need a break from time to time. “Oh, mother!” Having an overprotective parent who shows up unannounced (like Samantha’s mother Endora) is also something you likely resonate with as a Cancerian.
Leo: You’re Fiona Goode, American Horror Story’s Coven "Who's the baddest witch in town?" Being ruled by the sun can explain why you’re always the center of attention—a supreme in your coven, no less! On the dark side, however your confidence can turn into arrogance, similar to how Fiona allowed her pride to get the best of her. Like Goode, you possess fierce leadership skills… but the real question is: how would you use your telekinesis if you could? For the greater good or for selfish gain?
Virgo: You’re, Game of Thrones
“The night is dark and full of terrors.” Before celebrating your effortless poise and seduction, embracing your inner witch requires you to face your shadow. For you, this could very much resemble Melisandre’s mind games, and incredibly complex nature. The same goes for your deep devotion, especially since the Red Woman believes to be a servant to the Lord of Light. Also, the way she “conceives” these shadow creatures without actually “conceiving” can also resonate with a taboo (Virgo) virgin archetype.
Libra: You’re Winifred Sanderson, Hocus Pocus
“Billy! I killed you once. I shall kill you again, you maggoty malfeasance.” As a Venusian, the last thing you’ll stand for is being called ugly, but this doesn’t mean you won’t take matters into your own hands if and when necessary. For instance, despite being a clever spell caster with her beloved spell book, Winifred cursed her ex Billy after he took her younger sister as his lover. Admit it, Libra: A relationship without loyalty is a deal breaker for you. Heck, you might even sew someone’s mouth shut if you have to!
Scorpio: You’re Prue Halliwell, Charmed
As a Plutonian, you’re celebrated for your emotional depth and sheer willpower, as you are often familiar with the cycles of death and rebirth from a very young age. Prue is no exception, considering she is both the oldest and most courageous of her sisters. Everything from the sacrifices she made as an adolescent to the death of her mother resemble your alchemical strengths. No matter how difficult or life-shattering, you always rise from the ashes like a Phoenix.
Sagittarius: You’re Glinda, The Wizard of Oz
When considering the divine order of the zodiac wheel, and the way your archetype represents a second chance at life (after the sun’s journey through Scorpio), you *would* be none other than technicolor Glinda. A symbol of hope and a light at the end of the tunnel, the Good Witch of the South serves as a generous guide and teacher for Dorothy. That said, in addition to your undeniable wisdom, Glinda’s character beautifully captures the essence of your benevolent planetary ruler, Jupiter.
Capricorn: You’re Bellatrix Lestrange, Harry Potter
Empathy may not be your strong suit, but this doesn't take away from your intriguing spectrum of emotions. Like you, Bellatrix can be quite ruthless in her pursuits, which makes sense when considering her troubled past as a prisoner in Azkaban. Being a loyal and devoted follower to the Dark Lord is also the root of her sadistic tricks and torturous schemes, but the way she finds joy in the misery of others makes her one of the worst villains of all-time. Your sign is also symbolic of self-mastery, so it’s only fair for you to be as evil as possible.
Aquarius: You’re Sabrina Spellman, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Similar to the way your Uranian presence is seen as unique amongst the crowd, Sabrina knows what it's like to stick out like a sore thumb all too well. After all, imagine growing up in a world of mortals, not to mention being the only student at Baxter High left with no choice but to sign the Book of the Beast on their 16th birthday. Fortunately, both you and Spellman possess a tremendous sense of self, and stubborn willpower. You’re also no stranger to rebellion.
Pisces: You’re The Wicked Witch of the West, Wizard of Oz
Everything from your fantasy-prone planetary ruler Neptune to your evocative imagination can easily conjure up the smoke and mirrors of this classic villainess. After all, it was Dorothy who manifested this evil character, after her strict neighbor Elmira Gulch threatened to take her dog Toto away. As a Pisces, you represent dreams, illusions, and the subconscious realm—the same goes for film and media! As for the Wicked Witch, she is an embodiment of both horror and glamour, a walking contradiction just like you.
