Well done once again to everyone who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge - A Touch of Tarot
With wisdom granted from the Tarot, it’s time to take a closer look at another enchanting aspect of magick
The theme for this week’s challenge is…
Beauty is all around us…
There is physical beauty like seeing a blooming flower, catching an enchanting sunset, wearing an outfit that brings out your best, or seeing someone who steals your breath away
Beauty can also be emotional or mental- found in the smiles of loved ones, joyful successes, powerful moments you will remember forever- things that go much deeper than the mirror’s reflection
No matter whether you choose to increase beauty physically or work some beauty magick in a non-material way, this week’s challenge is all about using magick to increase or discover beauty in your life
Are you ready?
It’s… CHALLENGE TIME!
Before jumping into this challenge, it may be helpful to take a moment to ask yourself:
What does “beauty” mean to me?
Where do you usually find beauty- in the mirror? In your favorite things or most beloved people? In the world around you?
Once you get a feel for how beauty plays a role in your life, you will be able to examine where you feel that you are lacking beauty and can focus on increasing it in that area.
~~~ Here are just a few suggestions of how you could jump into beauty magick this week: ~~~
Do you want to look more beautiful? There are spells to increase physical beauty- but in order to determine where and how to direct your magick, you may want to first consider the standards of beauty are you comparing yourself to.
The commercial beauty industry has earned a reputation for being “toxic”- using cosmetics that contain dangerous chemicals, models pressured into unhealthy habits, and impossible standards set by heavy photoshop editing- just to name a few of the issues of this extremely profit-based industry.
With a clear intention in mind, you can use the following spells along with safer natural ingredients and taking a more ethically and wholesome approach to foster both a beautiful and healthy appearance
No matter their physical appearance, those with low self-esteem may struggle to see the beauty in themselves or believe that they don’t have any beauty at all.
Consider using self-love and self-care spells to spark good feelings that you have for yourself and begin to see the beauty hiding from your eyes.
There is beauty all around us- but so often, we don’t see it! This week, you could explore beauty magick by cultivating mindfulness and appreciation for beauty that is currently going unseen in your life.
There are many deities associated with beauty. Practice beauty magick and increase the beauty in your life by working with a deity such as one of the following:
Beauty takes many forums- feel free to pursue it in your own way!
You may consider making some lovely artwork , redecorating your altar in a stunning way , or making something blessed and beautiful to give to a loved one or as an offering
