A warm welcome to all!
Well done once again to all those who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge- Of the Element Earth
After spending time working with each of the elements in turn, it is time to put our knowledge and skills to the ultimate test
The theme for this week’s challenge is the climax of the elemental challenges and is…
The knowledge we explored in the past elemental challenges has helped in finding ways to incorporate the elements in our practices. It has all been leading to this!
This week’s challenge encourages you to creatively incorporate what you already know- by using multiple elements in your magick!
Are you ready? It’s… CHALLENGE TIME!
STEP 1 : Using Multiple Elements
By using all of the elements in a spell or ritual, it helps to give your magick elemental harmony and nautral balance
You might consider:
Adjusting a Spell- by adding or adjusting the elemental components of a spell, you can change the spell’s direction or intention to better suit what you need and make it more personal.
Designing Your Own Spell- by using the elements as a guide, you can make a balanced and harmonious spell that you design yourself!
There are many ways to incorporate the elements into your spellwork- here are a few suggestions to help get you started with this challenge!
Review the Core Elements
Before mixing and matching the elements, you may want to re-visit the resources and ideas from the previous elemental challenges:

Explore Additional Elements
Witches and pagans come from delightfully diverse backgrounds with various beliefs around the elements.
While fire, water, air, and air generally tend to be the standard, different practices often have different names and/or consider elements beyond these four.
Many practices draw on the Fifth Element of Spirit, while others may consider Spirit/Life (sometimes called Aether) to be the combination of all other elements
Another good place to explore the 5 elements of Wicca is by visiting the Spells8 Elements of Wiccan Wisdom Page.
Feel free to explore and define what elements are important in your practice, and how you like to use them!
