Wishing a warm welcome to all!
Thank you once again to those who shared their beautiful altars as part of last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge - All About Altars
After decorating our altars and showing pride in our sacred spaces, it’s time to celebrate another sacred space- one that we all share together!
The theme for this week’s challenge corresponds with a special occasion and is…
Happy Birthday to the Coven Community!
This Saturday, May 1st marks the 2-year anniversary since Founder @Francisco opened the doors of Spells8 to the world
The past two years have seen the coven grow and flourish- blossoming into a community of over 900 users! The growth of Spells8 and the warmth of our community wouldn’t have been possible without the many wonderful witches who joined the coven along the way
This week is for YOU! It is all about celebrating the Spells8 community by showing off the best of its coven members.
Are you ready? It’s…
CHALLENGE CELEBRATION TIME!
PART 1 : Strut Your Stuff!
This week, the focus is on you- what is your favorite aspect of magick? Is there a special type of spell or particular tool that you love working with?
Feel free to let your talents shine by showing or talking about your most beloved aspect of magick!
For those unsure of the direction they’d like to take with this challenge, here a few suggestions:
Share your favorite spell
Do you have a go-to spell you use all the time? Or perhaps there was spell that just worked perfectly for you in the past.
Feel free to share your favorite casting or a successful spell experience with the coven!

Express love for your favorite aspect of magick
Are you a Green Witch at heart, who loves learning about plants and herbs ? Or perhaps cooking up magically delicious meals as a Kitchen Witch is your specialty ! Maybe Tasseography leaf reading is your cup of tea , or perhaps you’re all about working with crystals
Whether you’re an astrologist studying the Zodiac or a devotee of Moon Magick - feel free to express your love for your favorite aspect of magick!
Talk about your time with Spells8
Instead of (or in addition to!) working some personal magick this week, you might also reminiscence on what brought you to Spells8.
Did you come for the courses, or found your way here while on the hunt for a spell? Were you a baby witch looking for guidance, or perhaps a solitary practitioner hoping to find a supportive community?
Take some time to reflect on your journey here so far!
If in your reminiscing, you come up with suggestions for witchy content that you are hoping to see on the site (such as new topics, themes, subjects, etc.), feel free to share your thoughts!
