A very merry meet to all!
Thank you once again the brilliant folks who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge- Star Magick
After channeling the dazzling magick of the stars, it’s time to let our own natural talents shine brightly
The theme for this week’s challenge is…
Magick in the Arts
With both the Sun and the New Moon currently in intuitive and thoughtful Pisces , now is the prime time to let our creativity loose:
Magick is manifestation- and there are so many ways to channel our energies and express our spellwork through the arts!
This challenge is all about exploring and using art magick.
Are you ready? It’s… CHALLENGE TIME!

STEP 1 : Artful Magick
Art is as broadly defined as creativity itself- any form of self-expression can be categorized as art!
So for this challenge, feel free to pursue your favorite crafty calling or explore a new form of self-expression. The sky is the limit and possibilities are endless
Since a blank canvas can be intimidating, here are few suggestions you may consider:
Painting and Drawing
Talented drawers and painters are welcome to let their skills shine! Feel free to paint in honor of a deity, symbol, the earth, or any other aspect of your practice that calls to you.
→ You can find inspiration in the thread Art Witch
For anyone who wants to pick up a brush but is feeling less confident, consider expressing your magick in abstract ways. Cocobee has some wonderfully meditative and stress-free videos on abstract painting:
Writing and Poetry
Music and Prayer
Explore witchy songs and find inspiration in the power of music and prayer!
→ The thread Witchy Music- What’s Your Favorite? is a great place to find new magickal tunes.
→ Magick in Music has additional ways to incorporate magick in your practice
You may also enjoy the purifying sound of meditative music in your practice, such as the cleansing videos of WOKE NATION.
If you feel the pull of expression but don’t know where or how to begin- considering working some magick to boost your creativity!
→ Spell for Creativity may help spark your creative juices
In such a rich and colorful world, the possibilities for magically artful expression are truly endless!
