Witchcraft has historically been defined as the ability to influence someone else’s mind or body involuntarily. Powerful, prophetic, enchanting and mysterious, witches have epitomized the Halloween spirit for years. In Christianity and Islam, spell-casting was also viewed as heretical and was overwhelmingly associated with women. In recent years, many women have reclaimed this image, as this interesting article explains. Rather than ignoring the dark history associated with witches, many have chosen to embrace it and redefine it. Today, there are possibly as many as 1 million pagans in the United States alone.
