Paganism & Wicca - What Is A Hex?


The term "hex" comes from the German hexe and is one of those beautiful words that may be used as nouns, verbs, or adjectives. 

• A spell-caster and/or her spell are indicated by the letter hex. 

  • Despite the fact that every spell may be deemed a hex, it has come to denote a nasty spell or a curse: "The hex cast a hex." 

• Hex also refers to the process of casting a spell, thus one might threaten, "I'll hex you!" 

• To be hexed is to be mesmerized, cursed, or bewitched, and to be actually under the hex's power, as in "The home was hexed."


In German, a hex is a witch or a sorceress. (Hexen plural.)
