Thank you once again to all those who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge - Morality in Magick
After some deep reflective work, it’s time to stand up and shake it out- the spotlight is calling your name! It’s a special chance to show off magickal skills that you’ve been working on
The theme for this week’s challenge was suggested by the lovely @georgia and is…
Witch Talents & Magickal Skills
What magickal skills have you been studying? Show off your hard work this week!
We all have our areas of passion in the Craft- from tarot to crystals, herbal magick to divination, astrology, numerology, and so many more- these are the things we dedicate our time to in hopes of improving our magickal level of skill.
A magickal skill can be something you are naturally gifted in, or anything you are working to develop- it’s an area you feel passionate about, that you’d like to continue to improve in.
This challenge shines a light of appreciation on the work you have put into your magickal practice and the skills you have been developing. There is no judgment here- just a place to share pride in the effort you have dedicated to your Craft. We are all living and learning, and taking the time to acknowledge our accomplishments can provide a boost of motivation and encouragement.
Developing magickal skills is something to celebrate- so don’t be shy, step up and share about your magickal skills and achievements with your supportive Coven!

This challenge is all about the skills you have developed/are developing in your practice - but as always, how you choose to take on this theme is up to you!
Still not sure where to begin? To help you get started, here are a few ways in which a witch might approach this challenge.
The question “what are you good at?” may cause humble souls to shy away, but the truth is that everyone has skills and abilities they are good at, and they are worth acknowledging!
If you’re not sure, here are a few exercises you can do to help you find your witchy talents:
Look back at your journey- what drew you to magick? Did your intuition or sharp senses help you see beyond the mundane? Did you forge a close connection with a deck of divination cards or successfully communicate with a spirit? Maybe you craft beautiful things or find peace through meditation. These are just a few of the many possible magickal skills one can have!
Ask yourself what type of witch/practitioner are you? Feeling called towards Green Magick, Moon Magick, Kitchen Witchery, Ocean Magick, Hedge Magick, or the many other types of witches out there is a huge hint as to where your interests (and thus, the areas where you are developing skills) are.
Recall the most recent spell or ritual you cast. What did it involve? Were there certain parts of the spell that you felt comfortable with- from knowing ingredients to sensing correspondences to saying a prayer or reading a candle flame, these are all magickal abilities.
Take this challenge by the horns and share your skills by putting them to use! Once you have recognized your magickal abilities and witchy talents, find a way to tap into them this week.
You might cast a spell, do a ritual, craft something fun, do art magick, whip something up in the kitchen, or write a prayer, spell, or dedication- the choice is yours!
There are no limits on what counts as a magickal ability! So here are just a few suggestions that might spark inspiration:

The suggestions above are just a few ideas to help kickstart your creativity- if you feel called to explore magickal skills in another way, please feel free to do so!
As always, all witches are encouraged to embrace their own unique practice with how they explore the challenge theme
