Witchcraft is the practice of magick that encompasses many different types of activities including astrology, divination, spell casting, and spirit communication. It includes the practices of many cultures, nations and religions as well as many books and writings from ancient times. Depending upon the individual, some witches practice their power by certain belief systems, such as Voodoo, Wicca, or any number of other magickal practices from countries and cultures all around the world. Although the majority of witches are commonly portrayed as being kind and selfless humans who use their powers to maintain balance within the world; in the case of Bonnie, Nancy and Rochelle, it has been proven that some witches are independent thinkers who may go against the Wiccan Rede by practicing their powers for dark and sinister deeds.
- Anyone can become a witch.
- Anyone can practice witchcraft.
- Contrary to popular belief, the term "warlock" is never used to describe a male witch. While other terms such as "Shaman" are used to describe witches who follow Shamanism, and "Wiccan" is used to describe witches who follow Wicca, it appears that "witch" is a gender-neutral term that applies to both men and women.
- Whilst anyone can utilize magic, a natural witch is someone who is naturally born with magical energy and can practice their power with little-to-no training. While these witches are considered very powerful, it is possible that ordinary people, without the genetic boost, can equal them or possibly surpass them.
