40 Empowering Witch Quotes That Will Make You Feel Wicked

These Quotes About Witches Will Bring Out Your Inner Magic this Halloween

While many women wield their inner witch year-round, October and Halloween tend to bring out the witchy side even in the muggles that walk among us. And while many of us envision hook-nosed, hags in pointy black hats when the word “witch” is mentioned, the truth is, that real witches walk among us and they are nothing like their cartoonish depiction. In fact, they are professionals, moms, nurses, and teachers and they have an abundance of wisdom to offer. That is why this Halloween season, we are sharing quotes about witches, by witches, and from some of our favorite TV and movie witches that are well worth the read.

While it’s fun to think of witches as the beloved (and sometimes hated) characters in movies and TV shows, more and more, feminists are embracing witchcraft as a method of empowerment during a time in our history when sexism, racism, and homophobia are surging across the country. The following include witch quotes by actual witches, as well as quotes about witches and feminism, and fear not! We even included quotes by beloved fictitious witches to get you ready for your Halloween antics.

“Witches exist throughout space and time.” — Amanda Yates Garcia

“The whole concept of witches was that women were speaking up for themselves and fighting for their rights. The whole concept of witchcraft came into play to hold down women and women’s empowerment.” —Mädchen Amick

“The witch is the ultimate embodiment of the divine feminine—and the demon feminine. She has as many faces as the moon, so regardless of your background, there is an iteration for you.” —Kristen J. Sollée

“‘Witch’ is something we call a woman who demands the benefit of the doubt, who speaks the truth, who punctures the con, who kills your joy if your joy is killing.” —The Witches Are Coming, by Lindy West

She was devoted to the moon in its darkness she found comfort and in its light she found hope – Wild Woman Sisterhood

“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hiding in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” — Roald Dahl

Quotes By Real Witches

 “Remember, your words can plant gardens or burn whole forests down” – Gemma Troy

“A witch is a woman who worships herself as her own god. She is the creator of her own life, the healer of herself.” — Maura Dillon

Quotes about witches

“Witchcraft is a way of life for individuals, not the masses, and there’s no point in you coming toward the Craft if you are a wimp, a follower, a coward, or a fool, as sorcery is both a practice and a priesthood, and it is not a garment that can be discarded when the going gets tough.” —Ly De Angeles

“According to the oral tradition of Witches, we were once the priests and priestesses of a peasant Pagan religion. Members of this secret sect met at night beneath the full moon, for these were the “misfits” and “outcasts” who did not fit into mainstream society. Little has changed over the centuries and the Witchcraft community still embraces individuals frequently rejected in mainstream society. These include gays, lesbians, transgendered individuals, and other people with the courage to live their lives authentically in accord with who they are inside their hearts, minds, and spirits.” — Raven Grimassi

“Witchcraft is not evil. At least not any more than lighting a votive candle, praying for a sick friend, or carrying a lucky charm is. However, there are some who do view witchcraft as evil. This is only because organized religion (primarily the Christian church) has conditioned them to fear anything which strays from their narrow condemning view. After all, if you have the ability to fend for yourself, solve your own problems, and choose your own method of spiritual expression, why would you need the confined structure of a church?” Lady Sabrina

“On every full moon, rituals … take place on hilltops, beaches, in open fields and in ordinary houses. Writers, teachers, nurses, computer programmers, artists, lawyers, poets, plumbers, and auto mechanics — women and men from many backgrounds come together to celebrate the mysteries of the Triple Goddess of the Dance of Life. The religion they practice is called Witchcraft.” Starhawk

“Love for life in all its forms is the basic ethic of Witchcraft.” Starhawk

“My First Rule of Witchcraft is Don’t burn the witch.” — Heron Michelle

“A wise witch knows the shadows come from the light.” Dacha Avelan

“Why does the Wicked Witch of the West stick in our minds? Is it because she’s so ugly? Or because we all want to command a troop of flying monkeys?” Denise Zimmermann

“In Witchcraft, each of us must reveal our own truth.” Starhawk

“My religion speaks of the old ways. It is the perfume of my night, the sanctity of my day.” – Karla Bardanza

“The day I decided that my life was magical there was suddenly magic all around me.” – Marabeth Quin
