🕚 Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Catch-Up!

Challenge Entry – Inviting Abundance

I hadn’t realized that I missed this challenge, so what better way to celebrate Thursdays then give everyone a sneak peak at my prosperity altar! It’s simple yet effective and hasn’t steered me wrong yet.

Every Thursday, I take a candle and place it on my golden plate. Usually I use a green chime candle but I’m all out so I used a tealight today. I dress the candle, the sigil painting, and the coins with my homemade prosperity oil. Depending on how I feel that day I will also anoint the coins and money in the green pouch (that I made) and shake the pouch toward my chest.

I don’t have a specific chant or incantation I say. I simply focus on inviting in abundance and prosperity, staying open to opportunities that would benefit our financial stability, and keeping our home the way we enjoy it.

Today is no different! I spent a few minutes in mindfulness today at my prosperity altar, lit the candle, and it will burn until it goes out (or until I have to leave).

Weekly Witchy Challenge Entry - Witch Brews & Potion Brewer

I am so glad I saved my Challenges that I did not get in on time! Here is one that I missed. Witch Brews & Potions. I am not sure what Badges you are talking about that we want? This badge is "Potion Brewer" I would like that badge, Please and thank you. I will begin with, :drum: roll…Wordpad by copy and paste. Then I will do some touch ups…Done.



Weekly Witchy Challenge - Witch Brews & Potions Entry

Below is a list of my Intentions to choose a spell and a potion to achieve my final outcome for Grounding my Son and Banishing Demons:


  1. A Spell to assist in “Grounding” my son. He has changed his journey in life but he now knows this was the wrong path to take.
  2. A Potion to Banishing any Demon that may enter my space or my families space with the intent to harm.

The Spell I am using for my first intention is a Grounding Tea Spell. (hemanicnami.tumblr.com/namis-grounding-tea, 16 SEP 2016)

Nami’s Grounding Tea
⦁Black tea of your choice
⦁Cinnamon (powdered is the best)
⦁Peppermint or Rose petals (depending on which you have or prefer, i personally prefer rose petals)
⦁(optional) Milk or Cream

Heat your water to a temperature you enjoy drinking it at, I personally don’t get mine to the point of boiling due to sensitive teeth that don’t like heat. Pour it into your cup with the black tea and sugar placed into it. The Black tea is for energy as well as strong relations to the earth and grounding, the sugar is for more energy and attracting positive energies to yourself. Take one spoonful of rose petals/mint for divination and psychic power enhancement and put them into your tea (preferably into a tea holder or infuser of some kind). Finally add a tiny bit of milk (if you wish) and a half of spoonful of cinnamon to the top of the cup. The cinnamon is for power, energy and psychic powers and stir it clockwise (Nami, 9/16/2016)

I prefer to use tea versus coffee. It must be an intuition but I belief tea has a stronger spiritual connection over coffee.

Reading the Tea Leaves or Coffee Grounds
Reading tea leaves or coffee grounds has traditionally been practiced in many countries by the women in the family, typically at gatherings of family and friends (Fortune Telling Using Tea Leaves, Coffee Grounds., 2016)

⦁Tea leaf reading is also referred to as tasseomancy, tasseography or teomancy.
⦁Coffee reading is known as cafeomancy.
Tea Method
⦁First of all sit, down and enjoy your cup of tea. Remembering of course, that you need to make your tea the old-fashioned way using a teapot, so that you end up with a fair few tea leaves!
⦁You need a teacup with a wide mouth, sloping side of cups, and a plain, undecorated surface inside of cup.
⦁Do not strain the tea as you pour it. Many people believe you cannot read your own cup, however that is a personal preference. As with any form of divination, it is always difficult to read your own fortune objectively. (Powers, 2016)

Remember, this is a form of divination. is to sit down, enjoy the tea,
relax and gather your thoughts.

Before you even start the reading , there may already be
some early signs to interpret: (Powers, 2016)

⦁ Bubbles on the surface of your tea or coffee means that money is on its way.
⦁ If any tea leaves are floating on the surface, then visitors are imminent. The number of leaves shows how many days away they are.
⦁ If two teaspoons are accidently placed on a saucer, then you can expect news of twins soon.
⦁ If a teaspoon is placed upside down onto a saucer then you will hear news of the ill-health of a close relative.
⦁ Finish your tea leaving a small amount of liquid in the bottom of cup of the cup.
⦁ Holding the cup in your left hand, swirl the tea leaves round three times in a clockwise direction. Make sure that the remaining tea swirls around the whole of the cup.
⦁ Then, upend the cup on the saucer and let the liquid drain away.

Now you can examine the cup and the patterns of the tea leaves inside. As
a general first impression, just a scattering of leaves inside the cup
indicates a tidy mind and disciplined life. A lot of leaves indicates a rich,
full, busy life.

First take a quick look inside the cup to see if there are any
signs that jump out at you: (Powers, 2016)

⦁ Any distinct drops of tea or coffee that remain in the cup despite the swirling and emptying of the cup, represent tears.
⦁ A very large clump of tea leaves indicates trouble. Near the handle - trouble caused by your own making. Opposite the handle - the trouble is not your fault.
⦁ Tea-stalks indicate people. Long stalks indicate men. Shorter stalks indicate women. Pale or dark stalks indicate colouring. Slanted stalks indicate untrustworthy people.
⦁ Most tea leaf readers interpret the patterns that the dark tea leaves make against the light background of the cup. However, some also read the images formed in white (seen on the cup itself), with the dark clumps of tea leaves forming the background.
Reading the Leaves
⦁ The cup is held so that the handle points towards the questioner. The handle represents the questioner and his or her home, and the tea leaves are read in relation to the position of the handle.
⦁ The rim of the Cup represents recent events. Leaves lying closer to the bottom of the Cup indicate events that are more distant in time. The very bottom of the Cup represents misfortunes.
⦁ Leaves that lie to the right of the handle indicate the future, and leaves to the left of the handle indicate the past.
⦁ The further away the leaves lie from the handle, the further away the events are in either time or even physical distance. (Powers, 2016)
The hardest part of this Grounding Spell was getting my son to do it with me. His girlfriend is very much into this type of ritual including Astrology, Tarot Cards, Palm Reading, The Moon and etc…Over the last few years, nonchalontly, she has been teaching and/or reading “misc topics” which helped me. I told him I needed to use him for school paper…it worked! He told me he would do this with me once a month…this will be my quality time and alone time with my son.
Potions, for some reason, never enter my mind to make. I was watching Charmed today and Pheebe was making a vanquishing potion to get rid of Cole because he killed a innocent. This reminded me of my “Demons”
As per "The TravelWitch_Bry at Spells 8, What is a Potion?:
“A potion is a combination of ingredients and magickal intent. It can be something consumed, applied topically, added to a ritual bath, diffused into the air, or used as a spell enhancement. Potions come in as many forms and have as many properties as there are types of magick” (Bry, Spells8, 2022)
The second Intention is a Potion to vanquish any Demon that may enter my space or my families space with the intent to harm. This Potion is from the

I am learning a lot about making potions and this might not be the way for me to go. Making my own Potion requires a lot of experience, knowledge and patience, all which I do not have. I am hoping by the end of this Weekly Witchy Challenge, I will have some feedback in order to learn more about Potions and Demons.
Here is a Potion that I found on the website; www.livejournal.com, belthazor, March 14, 2006
Potion to Vanquish an Upper Level Demon


2 Cockles
3 Crickets
1 Pig’s Foot
Mandrake Root
Sprig of toadflax
Dash of Cardamom
Pinch of Carrot Seeds
Strip of Elm Bark

Mix the ingredients in a pot over fire with boiling water. In theory, this should work to vanquish an upper level demon. ( Since these ingrediants might be a little difficult to obtain, I decided to make my own Potion.
Remove Demons from Home
If you get notification that your, house is not safe for you then what will you do? We think you do not know but you can remove demons from home with our helping method. First we should find that our house is usually has bad environment or it has demonic environment. If your home have fleshy environment then your house affected from demonic powers. These types of home are not ordinary home because these are spiritual homes that keeping demons or evil inside the home.

If you want to remove demons from home, then please consult with spiritual prayers or discuss with our astrology specialist. (livejournal.com, belthazor, March 14, 2006). This surpised me, I did not put an astrology specialist together with vaqushing a Demon.
I accualty had someone remove a Demon from me! I was sitting in front of a sink doing dishes at my friends house when out of no where, this black object as big as me, fell out of my right side. It took my breathe away for maybe 2 minuets, I could not talk and when I gasped for air, my friend asked me what just happened? When I could finally speak, I told him. That’s when he told me he threw Blessed Holy Water on me because he knew I had a Demon inside me. From that experience, I decided to come up with a potion using Blessed Holy Water for this Challenge. I went to a Church and purchased a bottle but, you can make your own. Below is an article that shows how to do this: (Rice, Jacob, Sept.6, 2016)
How To Make (Relic) Holy Water
⦁ Get some water. It doesn’t matter what kind (tap, purified, Brita…it’s all good).
⦁ Put the water into a clean container (again, it doesn’t really matter what it is: flask, vase, mixing bowl, etc.)
⦁ Drop a pinch of kosher sea salt into it.
⦁ There are two options to finish the holy water:
⦁ Use a holy relic like rosary, a cross, St. Benedict’s coin, another symbol with Christ;
⦁ Recite Psalm 103.
There are other ways and options to obtain Holy Water, here are a few: (Rice, Jacob, Sept.6, 2016)
⦁ Saint Holy Water
This type of holy water is found in holy wells associated with famous Catholic saints. The most famous well is in Lourdes, France. This means you’d have to travel to a well to take the holy water. Not very practical.
⦁ Gregorian Holy Water
This is the traditional kind of holy water. It has ashes, salt and wine as well as the holy water. It’s generally used to consecrate altars, but it would work against demons.
*Please note: You could also run into a strong demon, and your relic holy water won’t help. You’d need to get something stronger, holy oil. (Rice, Jacob, Sept.6, 2016)

The symbols and meanings that follow below can be used as a general guide when doing your readings. However, you may find that certain symbols have a particular meaning for you alone and vary from the meanings given below. Feel free to follow your own instincts when doing readings. Basically, the rule of thumb is, if it works well, then stick with it. (Powers, 2016)
⦁ Abbey Freedom from worry.
⦁ Ace of Clubs A letter.
⦁ Ace of Diamonds A present.
⦁ Ace of Hearts Happiness.
⦁ Ace of Spades A large building.

*Please note that the rest of the list can be read here, otherwise, this Challenge would be 10 pages long: Fortune Telling Using Tea Leaves, Coffee Grounds.
There seem to be several ways, times, days, night, daytime and using colors, herbs, spices, material objects and much more when deciding to preform Magick.

Pin by Psychic Life Journey on Correspondences|Magick,Magick spells …
Magick is very new to me and I did not think about the difference between Spells and Potions and when I should you use a spell or use a potion. The answer to that, according to Kitty @ Otherwordlyoracle.com, here is a list of the best days and times to perform Magick:
Magical Days of the Week and Their Correspondences Magical Days of the Week: Correspondences & Daily Energy 2019, Kitty)
Every day is magical; therefore, you can harness the energy of a specific magical day of the week instead of waiting for a planet to move or the moon to cycle.

  1. Sunday Magick
    Sunday is named for…you guessed it…the Sun! So we can think of this weekday’s magick as everything related to the sun. Cast your spells and perform rituals on Sunday for the following intentions: growth, prosperity, strength, vitality, healing, opportunity, money and victory.
    Sunday’s magical correspondences:
    Magical Intentions: abundance, growth, enlightenment, strength, healing
    Crystals: citrine, sunstone, pyrite, gold, goldstone, carnelian, orange calcite, tiger’s eye, amber
    Herbs: sunflower, chamomile, calendula,
    marigold, bergamot, oak, rosemary, oregano
    Gods/Goddesses: Helios, Amaterasu, Sunna, Sulis, Ra, Bastet, Sekhmet, Freyr, Apollo, Belenos, Aurora
  2. Monday Magick
    We often dread Mondays, but Monday has a special kind of magick that might make you think differently. Monday is named after the Moon. Therefore, all magick related to the moon can also be performed on a Monday! No more waiting for the right moon cycle if you have an immediate need. Cast spells and perform rituals for the following intentions: love, healing, intuition, psychic abilities, dreams, emotional balance, friendship, purification, fertility, shadow and spirit work.
    Monday’s Magical Correspondences:
    Magical Intentions: intuition, dreams, shadow work, psychic abilities, emotional balance, friendship
    Crystals/Metals: silver, moonstone, pearl, fluorite, amethyst, quartz, sapphire
    Herbs: moonflower, jasmine, gardenia, white rose
    Gods/Goddesses: Thoth, Selene, Diana, Artemis, Luna, Hecate, Phoebe, Kalfu
  3. Tuesday’s Magick
    Tuesday’s name isn’t as easy to figure out. Tuesday is named after the Norse god of lightning, justice, and war – Tyr. When Tuesday rolls around, my mom and I say, Happy Tyr’s Day! Being that Tyr was a powerful god with strength and virility, the magick you perform on Tuesday should include: justice/legal issues, protection, binding, banishing, reversal, courage, power, passion, self esteem and confidence, and more. Not surprisingly, Tuesday is ruled by the planet Mars (also a god of war).
    Magical Intentions: legal matters, justice, protection, binding, banishing, reversal, courage, self confidence
    Crystals: carnelian, ruby, bloodstone, garnet, red jasper
    Herbs: dragon’s blood, nettle, thistle, thorns, wormwood, hawthorn, red flowers and plants associated with Mars
    Gods/Goddesses: Tyr, Mars, Apollo, Maeve, Bran, Ares, Valkyries, Sekhmet, Kali, The Morrigan, any war or justice deity
  4. Wednesday’s Magick
    Wednesday is also a day that acquired its name from an old Norse god – Odin. In the Germanic, in particular Saxon tribes, he was also called Woten or Wodin, hence Wednes-day or Woden’s day. Odin is the All-Father in the Norse pantheon and rules wisdom, mischief, poetry, quests and the runes (among many other things). Wednesday is ruled by the planet Mercury, which rules communication and more. So, if you cast on Wednesday, it should be for one of the following intentions: communication (verbal and written), technology, cars/transportation, wisdom, clarity, spiritual growth or enlightenment, travel, psychic abilities, courage, divination (particularly the runes), and power.
    Wednesday’s Magical Correspondences:
    Magical Intentions: divination, wisdom, knowledge, education, traveling, communication, spiritual enlightenment, courage, mischief
    Crystals: Agate, citrine, aventurine, sodalite, lapis, hematite, emerald
    Herbs: lavender, rosemary, fern, cherry, licorice, poppy, mugwort, plantain, apple, fennel, chervil
    Gods/Goddesses: Odin, Mercury, Hermes
    Thursday’s Magick
    Thursday is named for one of our favorite Marvel characters and originally the Norse god of thunder – Thor. Thursday’s magick focuses on the following intentions: protection, power, male fertility, strength, purification, consecration, storm energy, and forest magick. In addition Thursday is ruled by the planet Jupiter, which is the planet of good luck, prosperity, health, career success, leadership, politics, legal matters, etc.
    Magical Intentions: storms, legal matters, military, protection, cleansing, consecration, good luck, prosperity, career success
    Crystals/Stones: amethyst, sapphire, turquoise, lepidolite, sugilite
    Herbs: cinnamon, beech, oak, thorns, garlic, hawthorn, leek and onion, thistle
    Gods/Goddesses: Thor, Juno, Jupiter
    Friday Magick
    Friday is a magical day of the week named for one of two goddesses: Freya or Frigg. Both are Norse goddesses and it’s debated whether Friday is named after one or the other. Some say they’re the same goddess, further complicating the matter. Freya and Frigg share similar qualities, which are good intentions for Friday magick: love, motherhood, marriage, emotions, female fertility, the household, passion, beauty, war and death. Friday is ruled by the planet Venus, Venus was also a goddess of love, passion, etc. When you think of Friday think the day of LOVE and passion.
    Friday Magic Correspondences:
    Magical Intentions: love, passion, sex, home and hearth, family, motherhood, female fertility, death, beauty
    Crystals/stones: rose quartz, pink tourmaline, moonstone, jade, peridot, emerald, ruby
    Herbs: red hibiscus, rose, lavender, rosemary, jasmine, blue lotus, violet, birch, sage, ivy
    Gods/Goddesses: Freya, Frigg, Venus, Aphrodite
    Saturday Magick
    Saturday is named after the planet and god Saturn. Therefore everything Saturn rules is appropriate for magick on Saturdays including self improvement and transformation, knowledge-seeking, time, evaluating one’s personal values, banishing negativity and bad habits, etc.
    Saturday Magic Correspondences:
    Magical Intentions: knowledge, values/morals, time, banishing, self transformation, psychic defense, meditation, locating lost items or people, self defense, liberation
    Crystals/stones: onyx, obsidian, smokey quartz, jet, pumice
    Herbs: myrrh, moss, thyme, basil, hemlock, nettle, peppermint, pomegranate, hyacinth, mallow, juniper
    Gods/Goddesses: Saturn, The Norns, Oshun, Yemaya, Set, Cronus (OtherworldlyOracle, Kitty, 2019).
    In conclusion, there are a huge number of spells out there and collecting them to put in the Book Of Shadows (BOS) is an excellent idea. It will keep you organized and be able to obtain quickly. Potions seems to be more personalized according to the sistuation. For example, Demonic.

“Catch Up” Challenge Entry #1: Your Magickal Roots - The Spirit-Rider / Ancestral Serpent Wisdom

  • Resource: “Communing with the Ancestors: Your Spirit Guides, Bloodline Allies, and the Cycle of Reincarnation” by Raven Grimassi.

For myself, Ancestor Veneration is an essential part of my path. I ran across this concept of an ancestral spirit rider a few years back that I thought would be perfect for sharing under the “Your Magickal Roots” challenge.

We have all at one point in time told someone to “Hey, Get Off My Back!”

Acknowledging its meaning of being driven or constantly hounded by that person. We often regard these situations as one of annoyance, but there is another “back-rider” that wants to help; it is a Spiritual and Ancestral Back-Rider who can bestow guidance and wisdom from those who came before you.

Who or What is the Spirit-Rider?

Ancestor Veneration is practiced and prevalent in many countries and cultures around the world. In one teaching or concept, it is believed that we are accompanied in life by one of our Ancestors from one of our collective lineages. This being is sometimes called the “Mind-Rider or Spirit-Rider”.

The Spirit-Rider is an Ancestor that can come and go between the Mortal Realm and the Ancestral Realm. It is said to attach itself to the spine of the descendant and to ride with her or him. The Spirit-Rider is seen as a serpent form, resembling the shape of the human spine. It’s a lot like the concept of “Kundalini Energy”, which is said to be like a snake, coiled at the base of the spine waiting to be released. It is the same for the Spirit-Rider who works its way up the spine wrapping and wielding itself until its head is positioned in the area of the brain stem.
Ancestral Serpent Wisdom
In Ancestral wisdom the serpent is revered, the serpent can move easily between the worlds and inner dimensions. We see this in the theme of the Cosmic Serpent or World Serpent. It is the serpent who is the mover of tides and can be seen as those very tides. The serpent originates and maintains the tides; more specifically it carries the tides of life and death.

In ancient artwork and myth, the serpent is carried by those Gods and Goddesses intimately connected with the Dead. They are deities like Hekate, Cernunnos, Hermes, Apollo, etc…

Just like these deities, the Serpent is the messenger between the physical world and the non-physical world, between the world of mortals and the spirits of the Otherworld and Underworld.

The Gift of The Spirit-Rider & The Ancestral Eye

What makes the Spirit-Rider special is… The Spirit-Rider carries one eye in its open mouth… “The Ancestral Eye of The Past.” So, as the Spirit-Rider with its winding movement representing the flow of the generations across time, aligns “The Ancestral Eye of the Past” with the descendant’s Third Eye.

Through the Ancestral Eye, and through us, the Spirit-Rider can see the world of the Living, and it can help us to see the world of the past. “The Ancestral Eye of the Past” allows us to look upon the world of Ancestral wisdom, to see it as it was in its day, and to see it as it is within us now.

The Spirit-Rider at times can give the descendant vision into the future which is called “fetching”; this means it can take the descendant’s consciousness to another place or realm. Spiritual or magickal visions are often the result of being fetched away. The Spirit-Rider can also fetch another Ancestor and bring it to the descendant.

Without understanding “the fetch” and how it works, most of the work of the Spirit-Rider goes unnoticed by the conscious mind unless the person has had some training or alignment practice. However, some people experience the “chill of affirmation” which is that tingling feeling up the spine. It manifests when some greater truth is acknowledged in our being.

This sensation is the Spirit-Rider moving in the spine; it is drawing our consciousness to appreciate the words being spoken or a message to pay particular attention to. It often comes with a revelation about some matter in the descendant’s life.
Now with that being all said, The Spirit-Rider does not always remain with the descendant but can and does rejoin the Ancestors in their realm from time to time. For all things must return, from which they came.

What We Can’t See, Sees Us… Watching & Waiting With Wisdom & Guidance

From time to time in life we can lose the feeling of spiritual connection, of connection to many things in our life. We can lose our rootedness to the Spirit of the Land and to the Ancestral Spirit. In time we can return to our Path or to what carries us forward in life.
It’s comforting knowing that we have a Spirit-Rider with us. It means we are not alone and not disconnected from those who came before us in our lineage. To have a Spirit-Rider means that there is great work within us, it is one of meaning and purpose to our lives.
Like the serpent, however, it slips away from time to time; it disappears into an underworld, only to return again. Just like the Sun, Moon, and Stars above, it goes into the realm of the West and disappears below the horizon.

Ancestral wisdom knows that light is at home and is at times found in darkness. So, the next time you see the celestial lights passing above our world; remember that just like the lights… our Ancestors and one-day even our own being will be “Riding” someone down our lineage, visiting but not staying, returning home when all is said and done.


Lol… I have to go through the last 10 & figure that out myself :laughing: I’ll find them though… I have to see which creative juices decide to start flowing… :rofl:

So far i have enjoyed everyone’s entries! I’m sure I’ll find some great inspiration once I look through them :smiling_face:

@Garnet thank you! I appreciate it very much :sparkles:


@Garnet no i wish i had. A friend of mine did. She made them for me out of resin. She also made me all of the major arcana of tarot, so i would have them, bc i don’t have a tarot deck


I have decided that my entry will be the Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Reading Auras
I have seen greyish/brownish-black shadows around certain people and places since childhood. I never knew they were called auras till I was an adult, and, as a child, I assumed everyone saw them.
I cannot say whether they are truly auras because I don’t see other colors. So, I will be attempting to read or see auras, starting with my own.
I’ll keep you posted, in case my blunders help others! :wink: :blush:


Well thank you very much Garnet, that means a lot coming from you. I have always enjoyed reading your posts, Challenges, feedback and so on. This was one of my three (3) Challenges that I did but did not download them here in time. Have a Blessed and wonderful safe weekend.
Blessed Be,
Medea :revolving_hearts: :tree_of_life:


@Wysteria_Norn I cannot wait to read this Challenge. I had 2 different women, who I specked were Witches, walk up to me and said you are Special; you have a vibrant aura about you. I just smiled because I did not know what she was talking about. About 3 hours later, another women came up to me and said the same thing. She also told me to never forget that…hmmm, ok.

Blessed Be


@Kasandra I’m sorry about the family troubles (:people_hugging: :heart:), but I’m glad that despite what happened you were able to enjoy a lovely Night of Hekate and work some peaceful moon magick :full_moon_with_face: And look at those brownies- YUM! :heart_eyes:

@Amaris_Bane I know right!?! 120 is crazy- I’m always surprised when I check the list and see how long it’s gotten :laughing: Can’t wait to hear which themes you’ll choose! :blush:

@catherine11 That’s big progress- congrats to you, Catherine! :clap: And I just have to say that I’m really proud of you for sticking with it despite the challenge. You’re very strong to keep working towards improvement, and step by step you’re going in the right direction. Great job! :star2:

@MeganB Your prosperity altar is so lovely, Megan- it has such a great ambiance and warm, homey feel to it :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Thanks for sharing, wishing you much abundance and prosperity! :raised_hands: :heart:

@Medea That is it exactly, Medea, thank you for very much for letting me know which challenge and badge- you’ve definitely earned your new title! Thank you so much for sharing everything- I got especially excited about your tea leaf reading, I love tasseography :tea::blush: As for the Demon Banishing Potion, it is a very… curious recipe. I remember LiveJournal used to be a place to go to read fantasy (fanfictions especially), so I’m surprised that there are witchy resources there too? I know you mentioned it may not be the right method for you, in which case I’d recommend sticking to the tea readings and perhaps holy water crafting. For demon banishing, maybe a Banishing Spell might help? Either way, great work, Potion Brewer, and thank you for sharing your experiences! :books::cauldron: :sparkles:

@ashley69 I really enjoyed reading about Spiritual Riders! Looking at the picture, it seems familiar- like someone I knew had a tattoo or drew it before. Next time I see it pictured, I’ll be able to recognize it, thanks to you! :snake: :blush: Thank you for sharing your wisdom, Ashley! :heart:

@Wysteria_Norn It sounds like you have a natural talent for seeing auras, Wysteria! :rainbow: Wishing you all the best with your aura work this week- I’ll look forward to hearing how it goes! Good luck! :sparkles:


Challenge Entry

I’ve never done a challenge before, but here goes -

I had purchased some “Money Money Money” spell oil from my local metaphysical shop, so decided to put it to good use.

I took 5 $20 bills and placed them in a circle - sprayed them with the oil while meditating on prosperity - also sprayed the inside of my wallet and my purse. My next step is to spend the blessed bills before the new moon, thus sending out the money energy. Without being greedy, and harming none, my intention is that the prosperity energy will return to me (at least!) threefold.

Challenge Entry

Weekly Witchy Challenge-My first catch-up is Trying something new. This started on Monday when @TheTravelWitch_Bry posted the weekly news. I have studied a few Goddesses over the last year, but when she posted about the Night of Hecate, I decided to learn more about her and I am so happy I did! My witchy room is full of crows, owls, skulls and keys! I even have a cast iron key holder in shape of a skeleton key that I use to dry herbs. All week I have listened to YouTube videos and even bought an audio book that I listened to twice. I ended up buying it because I want it in print. I made an altar for her on Wednesday morning before I left for work and on Wednesday night I went to a cross roads and left a bulb of garlic. I am excited to begin my journey with Hecate.

I have been on my witchcraft journey for almost a year now. I have grown and learned so much over the past year and I am proud to say that I am no longer a Christian witch!
