INDICATIONS YOU DO NOT YET FIT INTO A SINGLE ART:
- You rely on a variety of mystic abilities.
- You do not have a desire to commit to one path.
- You feel confined rather than empowered by using a single discipline.
- You see no need for devotion to extreme mystic abilities.
Note: This is not necessarily a reason to panic. There are times when the practitioner is legitimately not prepared to take on the discipline strains of studying through a single caste. At first, in fact, it is recommended that things be taken slowly and that all paths are given a fair trial to ensure that there is no reminiscing or regret in the future. This is not a problem, nor a sign of weakness. It is a reality that many casters face. Using whatever seems appropriate for a situation and recording it in a journal (Book of Shadows) will eventually reveal trends in your casting that will allow you to see where your talent or need lies.
INDICATIONS YOU DO NOT NEED MAGIC AT ALL:
- There is a physical solution to your problems.
- You couldn’t be bothered to study if there’s no immediately achievable results.
- You already know of a few normal solutions to a problem without resorting to the occult.
