Warm greetings to all!
Thank you again to all those who joined in to pass along witchy wisdom in last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge - One Witch to Another
After reaching out to one another across the distance, this week we’re taking the first step- crossing our borders to enter new territory
The theme for this week’s challenge is…
Magick on the Go
Whether you are an avid explorer or prefer to stay cozy at home, sometimes the call of the Craft strikes us when we aren’t at our altars. Near or far it doesn’t matter- magick is something inside us and can be done no matter where we’re at!
This week’s challenge is all about casting magick on the go- also called “travel magick” or “portable magick”. Whether you’re on an adventure or simply exploring your backyard, give casting in a new location a try this week!
So are you ready? Pack your cards and crystals , because it’s…

This challenge is all about exploring taking magick to new places (literally!)- there are many ways that you can make your Craft more portable.
To help you decide how to approach this challenge, here are few suggestions for you to consider.
@IrisW’s travel altar shared in Travel Altar
It’s amazing all the things you can bring with you in a small portable altar or worship bag! This week, consider making a Travel Altar of your own- made personal with a few small things vital to your magickal interests.
For tips and examples of the travel altars others have made, explore the following discussions:

Why not break the norm and head somewhere new to do your casting this week? It doesn’t have to be a cross-country voyage, just somewhere new to your practice. You may find that a new place imbues something extra special into your casting!
- Meditating in a local park
- Setting up a temporary altar in your backyard
- Forest bathing or other forums of nature immersion
- Doing water magick at a river, lake, or ocean
- Switching it up by casting in a different room
- Bring magickal tools with you by Wearing Witchy Jewelry
Note: If you are “in the broom closet” and/or not in a safe situation to be open about your practice in public- please do not do so! Your personal safety should always come first

If you’re unable to head to a new spot this week, perhaps consider spellwork that aligns with the spirit of wanderlust. Feel free to be creative with this, but here are a few suggestions:
Leave your body behind and have a journey of a different kind by trying Astral Travel! Here are a few places you can find tips and shared experiences:
- Do you Astral Travel?
- My First Astral Travel Podcast

Note: Astral Travel can be very difficult even for experienced practitioners- don’t feel discouraged if you don’t have success your first time.
