The Princess & the Witch

"Two masks
One a princess one a witch
Both ridiculous and painted and blind
So I will wear them both
The witch next to my skin
The princess next to yours
Which will you see first?"
-Emilie Autumn

The classic archetypes of the "Princess" and the "Witch" exist within the psyche of every girl.  Learning to balance them is important, lest the two begin to battle!  First, think of how you view these symbols; often the princess is associated with youth, beauty, and goodness while the witch stands for evil, envy and black magic.  These outdated sterotypes are changing as more and more princesses in the media are being portrayed differently, and Wicca is now a recognized religion(one which doesn't hurt others).   Here's how to make peace with the two:
