Mouths of Medusa: Am I A Witch?

Dear Medusa

How do I know if I’m a witch or not? I sometimes feel like I am, and I think I’m psychic too. How does it all happen??

Medusa: Witchdom lives in ancient songs, and snow-bound howls. It can strike from your hands like a tempest, or swell like a bulb in your belly. If you feel your witchdom, then it’s yours alone to feel. There is no one path to take, no one channel to cross, that will mark you officially so. Power lies in words, and to be ‘witch’ means to own the title. You are a witch, if you speak it. You can remain a witch, if you want it. But you probably knew I’d say this, and I hope my own words are a reassurance. Welcome.
