Professional Witch: 9 Day Jobs & Career Paths for Witches

Wouldn’t it be nice to live in the woods in a perfect little cabin surrounded by herbs and animals? We all have dreams and those dreams are totally attainable. BUT we need money in order to make our dreams a reality, right? And money comes from having a steady job. Witches need jobs and careers just like muggles do. Here we provide ideas for day jobs and career paths for the professional witch.

Day Jobs and Career Paths for Witches

By night you’re a wand-wielding, candle-burning, tea-brewing witch. As much as we’d like to be our true witchy selves all day every day, the truth is that day jobs for witches are necessary. It’s about choosing a day job that inspires you AND puts food on the table. And if you’re looking for career paths for witches, first identify YOUR passion in life. Now think about how you can combine your passion with witchcraft and make money off of it. Sounds difficult, but it’s actually not that hard when you put some thought into it.

Here are just a few ideas for the Professional Witch:

1. Metaphysical Shop Owner

I think every witch dreams of owning their own metaphysical witchy shop. If you’re a witch and you haven’t thought about it at least once, I’d be shocked. You have an option of working as an employee in a metaphysical shop which could be a fun day job for witches OR working towards a career path of owning a metaphysical shop of your own. Which leads me to the next career path for witches:

2. Professional Psychic

Most metaphysical shops make the lot of their money from the services they provide more so than the merchandise. A fitting career path and day job for witches is to use your abilities and get paid to do tarot readings, palm readings, crystal ball readings, and more. Depending on the shop you work in, you can make good money using your witchy skills and helping others at the same time.

Being a tarot reader or psychic is a great career path for witches!

3. Reiki Master

Professional witches typically like to choose career paths that are somewhere in the spiritual or healing industries. To be a Reiki master combines spirituality and alternative healing. Reiki is a Japanese energy technique that reduces anxiety and promotes healing. It takes time to become attuned (certified) and you must work your way up the ladder, so to speak, from level 1 Reiki practitioner to a full-blown Reiki master. HOWEVER, once a Reiki master, you could open a practice, charge for your services, and/or offer classes.

4. Farming and Gardening

There are so many options for jobs in the agricultural field that would be perfect for the professional green witch. I’m not talking Monsanto or anything detrimental. I mean running your own small organic farm. Teaching gardening classes. Becoming a master gardener and selling your produce. This day job for witches could turn into a career path AND keep the green witch working in her favorite place – with hands in the soil!

Farming and gardening are great professional witch career paths for those who love green witchcraft and the earth.

5. Midwives and Holistic Nurses

While we know the medical field is great for so many reasons but also has its many faults, we also know that professional witches are needed in the medical field. A. Because witches are natural healers and B. because the medical field needs people who are compassionate, see into the other worlds, and are willing to make the necessary changes. Career paths for witches include professional midwife and holistic nurse.

6. Acupuncturist and Herbalist

Many witches love herbs, so why not choose a career path that promotes herbalism and healing? Acupuncturists use acupuncture plus herbs and other healing modalities to aid their patients on the path to wellness. Professional witches could choose this career path and intertwine their love for herbs and healing AND make money.

7. Witchy Small Business Owner

Do you love to sew? Cook? Do you make things with your hands or have a hobby that you’re passionate about? Think about how you could turn your passion into a career path. Many professional witches choose to open a witchy small business and put their witchy skills to work! Start by selling your product or service online and begin building your witchy business which will blossom into a full blown witchy career path before you know it!

Professional witches are also authors and business owners.

8. Witchy Author

I’m partial to writing, if you couldn’t tell. I have combined my love for writing with my love for witchcraft AND I am making money off of the venture. If you’re a professional witch with a love for writing, consider choosing a career path as a witchy author. You could write non-fiction books on witchcraft OR witchy fictional books. Screenplays are also an option for witchy authors.

9. Veterinarian or Animal Rescue

Many witches are animal lovers at heart. Have you considered choosing a career path as a veterinarian or animal worker of some kind? Animals need healing and care, too and witches are typically wonderful with animals of many kinds. Animal rescues, veterinary clinics, and farms are all great places for witches to work

Don’t like any of these professional witch career paths?

As said previously, think about that one thing in life that you’re most passionate about. Combine it with your witchy skills and knowledge and think about how you can turn that into a day job or career path. It could be anything! Artwork, fitness, business, fashion, healing, teaching, and so much more! Professional witches are needed in EVERY industry if only for our unique way of seeing things. There are hundreds of day jobs and career paths for witches just waiting for a witch like you!

    I have a question! Since one of the jobs was being a psychic, would it be possible to maybe talk about being a psychic and how to do it for beginners. That would also include tarot cards or just a normal deck of cards.

      I mainly ask this because in the palm signs and witch marks, I have an X on my hand which was mentions as a psychic ability. I have them a lot either daydreaming or a sign, but I would like to get deeper into it.

      OF COURSE?? Why not?! Magic or magick is even part of a valid religion, so i dont see why not! You can be anyone who does anything and have a relationship with magic, its your choice and nobody elses, and dont let anyone else tell you whats right or wrong because their opinion doesnt matter when it comes to your happiness.

    I was a chemistry technician for 35 years and loved it. Very witchy in my opinion!

    A bit late reading this. When I really got involved in my path and couldn’t hide it anymore, I started my career in hospitality. I’ve always connected to the Hearth and Home side of witchcraft. Working at a hotel, being inviting, and being the one people rely on to ensure that they have a restful stay has been rewarding. My coworkers and regular guests say that I have the magic touch when it comes to hotel life. One day, I will either own my own franchise hotel, or own a Bed & Breakfast.

    Hi there. When going down my career path i had 2 options that i was really interested in. It was either Floristry or Nursing. I went down the nursing route and thought that floristry could always be part of my life and i could create it as a hobby but if i was to be a florist i couldnt have nursing in my life as a hobby.
    When i think about what would have happened if i went the opposite route i think about how witchy i would be everyday surrounded by the art and feelings of flora and foliage. I deffo think a florist could match up to these too 🙂
