What Is a Metawitch, Anyway?

According to YourDictionary.com:

The definition of meta is a person or thing that is more than usual or that goes above and beyond.

The definition of a witch is a woman thought to be able to cast spells or possess magical powers, or the term connotes evil and can also be used to describe a mean old woman.

Therefore, a metawitch is a magical woman who goes above and beyond in her endeavors. This might make her unpopular.

Or, as we like to think of it, a metawitch is a woman who thinks for herself, thinks a lot, and doesn’t necessarily follow the rules, no matter who made them. An uppity or difficult woman who looks beyond the surface of a situation to figure out what’s really going on, then talks about what she finds.
