Although they are traditionally feminine archetype, here the witches don’t bear the traditional clichés of weakness and subservience. In the Tarot of Devotion witches are not linked to one gender only. They are about having a strong sense of self, embracing power, about using the magic that is unique to you. They are about creating and making. They are also about fighting, and about defiance. The witches’ symbol is the knife.
" In the Tarot of Devotion, the witches symbol is the knife. Inspired both by the blade of Wiccan and other pagan ceremonies, but also by this simple tool humans have been using since time immemorial, it symbolises the active principle, the ways in which we act upon the world, to make, to destroy, or to transform. When pulling one of the witches ask yourself, how are they using their knife? What colour is it? Does it remind you of everything from your life? It might help you discover what those cards represent for you! "
