Let’s ask the Tarot! I used the Watcher Angel Tarot for this little reading about a rather weighty issue in the Pagan community…
To me it seems rather obvious that the answer is… well, both. The Hanged Man here makes a strong argument for Witches being born with a unique set of spiritual gifts – especially since it was the first card I pulled. Reading the cards from left to right, I get a sense of forgetting the Path at birth and then being reawakened to it through some crisis with the 5 of Swords.
And then a witch as to be made as well (8 of Pentacles). Because it is entirely possible to ignore one’s calling and to refuse to hone one’s craft.
Interestingly, the quint for this reading adds up to 25/7 – The Chariot, another strong argument for Witches being born.
What’s your take on this?
