Warm greetings to all!
Another round of appreciation to all those who joined in on last week’s challenge: Moon Magick!
After celebrating the moon and all her glory, it is time to invite in additional positive forces and blessings into our lives. The theme for this week’s challenge is…
Prosperity and Abundance
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the coming of Autumn signifies harvest time and reaping the bounty of the Summer. This is a great time of year to welcome in the results of our hard work and enjoy the fruits of our labor!
Friends in the Southern Hampshire are leaving the Winter behind them and welcoming in Spring. Now is the time for nature to blossom and bring the many joys of a season abundant with new life
No matter where in the world you are, now is a great time to draw on the energies of abundance and invite in prosperity! It’s time to draw in good forces, live long and prosper!
Are you ready? It’s CHALLENGE TIME!
STEP 1: Inviting in Prosperity
successful in material terms; flourishing financially.
“prosperous middle-class professionals”
bringing wealth and success.
“we wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year”
Late Middle English: from Old French prospereus , from Latin prosperus ‘doing well’.
Similar: thriving, doing well, wealthy, vigorous, productive, profitable, flourishing
[Definition from Oxford Languages]
This challenge is about finding ways to invite prosperity into your life, or about celebrating the blessings that you already have.
While the term “prosperity” usually refers to material goods, you are very welcome to wish for success in any topic of your choosing!
Consider seeking prosperity in terms of money, new jobs, school, family, health. You may choose to welcome or celebrate prosperity for yourself, someone close to you, or perhaps for the world as a whole
To help get you started, here are some potential ways to welcome in prosperity to your life:
Connect and/or make offers to a deity associated with abundance and prosperity
Decorate your altar for the new season
Consider sharing your abundance with others. Whether you find yourself with some extra time or energy, consider sharing it with others- through magick or mundane means.
Meditate on the incoming flow of energy
Do a visualization inviting good things into your life
Celebrate the season in your own witchy way!
Do a spell or ritual to invite good energies and success into your life.
Here are just a few spells and rituals related to prosperity:
Sugar Spell Jar for a New Home
Sun Sigil to Pass an Exam
~Good Luck and Success~
Good Luck Spells and Powerful Rituals for Success
NOTE: Magick that influences other people isn’t for every witch- you may want to review the Spellcasting Safety Tips and consider the ethics of casting before using your magick to influence another person. While love spells have been used throughout history, it is up to you to decide if you wish to include them in your practice or not!
~Prosperity for Nature~
Prayer for Healing Mother Earth
If you find yourself already very blessed, you may choose to celebrate the prosperity you have by looking back on your accomplishments . A reflection or gratitude meditation can help you to see how far you have come on your journey, and appreciate everything you have achieved!
STEP 2: Share Your Experience
To participate in this challenge, you must share your experience!
Feel free to share any spells, rituals, or other work you did to bring prosperity into your life. You could appeal to a deity associated with thriving and abundance, create a list of goals you have for the future, or create something new- so long as it relates to welcoming in prosperity, your wisdom and experiences are very welcome in this challenge!
Please feel free to create a new post in the forums (and don’t forget to mention the challenge!) or write about your experience below!
For all those who celebrate the energies of the changing seasons by welcoming success and good energies into their lives, there will be a special shout-out and a small prize given for your efforts!
This challenge will be open for 7 DAYS!
To join in, please post about your moon magick by 7:00 AM CET (Central European Time) on Tuesday, September 15th!
After the challenge closes, you are still very welcome to post but please be aware that no additional prizes will be given.
A warm reminder that this challenge is very open- all are encouraged to participate in a way that reflects their unique practice. There are no right or wrong answers so long as you practice respectfully, and there is no way to ‘lose’ the challenge if you participate!
This challenge’s goal is to help you help yourself! By exploring new aspects of magick and trying new practices, the hope is to both help you further diversify and strengthen your abilities, and to bring together the Spells8 forum family to inspire and support one another
May you bask in the abundance of the changing seasons, and may the new energies bring you much success and happiness!
Blessed Be to All!
