You are a Crone Wanna Be. Still innocent but with some life lessons under your belt. You are probably too busy trying to create a career and or family to even consider a deeper meaning to life. You are not yet ready to snatch the pebble from the masters hand, Grasshopper. Still, there is a spark of potential in you. You have the core elements inside you to become a great Crone someday. Come back in 10 years and try the quiz again. Now get back to work.
If you scored between 31-45
You are an Apprentice Crone. All the elements are in place and the journey to becoming a full Crone has begun. You are developing empathy, intuition, wisdom, patients, and a deep knowledge of the secrets of life. You are probably becoming a master in your chosen field of study, be it skill, art or humanity. Folks are beginning to respect your gifts and seek you out for advice. Be ever vigilant, many are chosen but few take up the call. This is not a path for the ego. Continue on with your studies and share your gifts freely.
If you scored between 46-60
You are a Card Carrying Crone. I stand in awe before you. You are confident and comfortable in your skin. You know who you are, what you are capable of and don’t take any guff from us lesser beings, but you are a master, a mentor and so you show compassion for all walks of life. You are humble and reverent to the vastness of all that is. Your faith in mankind and mother earth is unwavering. As a Crone you have also earned the right to dance to your own tune and may sometimes come across as eccentric, opinionated or crotchety, but you gave up caring what others thought of you a long time ago. So like the Cheeky Monkey, dance freely under the full moon, and sow the last harvest of your wild oats because as a Crone, the most important lessons you have learned is that life is meant to be lived.
