🗺 Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Magick on the Go!

I took a different direction for this week’s challenge than originally intended (something in the local woods) and decided to venture into my garden instead.

It’s mine and my husband’s sixth wedding anniversary today and we’ve had a lovely weekend. The weather has been poor most of the last month but beautiful today so we’re sat in front of the fire pit in the dark…

I thought this was a good opportunity to do some moon magic, and the date seemed like a good opportunity for something relationship related.

I chose a spell from The Little Book of Moon Magic by Sarah Bartlett, designed for a waning moon for banishing relationship negativity to “get rid of all that is unwanted in your life, to banish negativity around you, and to move forward and manifest your relationship desires in the next lunar cycle to come”.

This doesn’t mean I think that there are major negative issues in my marriage, I just don’t want my own fears holding us back from moving forwards with what life brings our way.

Here’s the spell itself…

What I added was rather than to do it all my main altar, instead I did it outside at the outdoor altar space I’m trying to create.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that my husband had brought home some crystals and rocks. This included two rather large pieces of black and red jade that have been set up in the garden.

I set the spell up in front of those…

Then wrote the wording on the paper before repeating it out loud and focusing on the selenite tower as required…

I’ve now blown out the candles and I’m supposed to leave everything where it is (it looks lighter outside in this last picture because my phone camera went into night mode without the lit candles).

May need to modify this last part as I’m not sure the candles outside will survive Sherlock either trying to eat them or wee on them :rofl:

Thanks, @crystal24! I wrote it with winter roads in mind. It’ll be icy sooner than I like.

Your spellcasting looks awesome @IrisW! The fire pit is beautiful and I like the rocks your hubby brought you.

This had me snorting water out of my nose! :rofl:

This is an awesome topic :
I love all the portable alter kits and need to make one. Usually I pack my books , cards, a crystal or two and Jars to collect magically nature specimens. Nature is a huge part of my magick and often I collect things as i’m out and use them for magick on the go .

This week I meditated at the park and made this beautiful natural offering while I was there

The other images are of offerings made on the go or from items collected on the Go .

I think those are all lovely things to bring with you on the go- agreed, @phoenix_dawn! It’s great to have your favorite tools close at hand even away from home. Beautifully designed! :sparkling_heart:

Absolutely, @Eliza_Beth- and thanks again for sharing your beautiful protective spell jar in the other thread, you did a great job with it! :blush:

Wow, what an amazing experience @Garnet- it sounds like you had quite the adventure! I would love to visit such a place, the way you described it sounds so relaxing and comforting there :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Thanks for sharing your astral travel experience!

What a lovely keychain, @steph! That’s a great way to have some tools always close at hand, and in a way that’s personal and customizable to your needs of the journey- great job! :two_hearts:

Congrats on the successful I Release You Spell, @Kasandra- it sounds as thought the Dragon Healer heard your prayer and granted immediate relief from your heartache. May you move forward, blessed by happiness from within, to see all that the world has to offer you :heart::earth_americas:

Ohhhh I am loving this travel chant to Hermes, @Amethyst! :heart_eyes: I’m always in awe of the chants you craft, and this one is no exception- gorgeously written! I read it once in my head and felt so compelled to re-read it out loud that I did. Here’s to (hopefully!) travels in the near future :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Hope you and your husband had a lovely anniversary, @IrisW! Thanks for sharing the banishing negativity spell- and wow, what an impressive display, I think you chose a great spot! The rock absolutely looks like a face- half in shadow and half in light, like the waning moon itself :last_quarter_moon: :sparkles: And uh-oh- hopefully Sherlock doesn’t decide to “help” with the spellwork! :joy:

It sounds like you had a blessed nature meditation, @JasmineTheBlueJ! And ohhh I love the pictures- what a neat pinecone spiral! And those decorations are stunning, did you make them? :heart_eyes: Really beautiful job- thanks for sharing!

As we wait for the USA to reopen to the EU, my partner and I haven’t been doing too much traveling lately. But we have been enjoying our weekly adventures into the woods! :evergreen_tree:

So for anyone who can’t go adventuring at the moment, here are some pictures so you can come along with us in spirit :blush:


Wild boar tracks in the morning woods


Heather in a woody field

The heather is currently in full bloom- full of happy bees buzzing in the more open parts of the woodlands. In Poland, the month of September is named after heather, it’s a very popular plant around these parts!

If anyone is interested, I wrote a piece last year on the Magickal and Medicinal Properties of Heather- it’s a lovely plant :purple_heart:


Strange shrooms- NOT EDIBLE

We found lots of mushrooms- many of which are not edible, but several of which are! :mushroom:

I am still a very low-level student in mushroom foraging (you can read more about it in: Into the Woods for Shrooms and Blues) so everything I forage needs to be double-checked by two mushrooms experts before it’s given the okay to eat :laughing:


Edible mushrooms- boletes and a few rare porcini

:exclamation: :mushroom: Mandatory mushroom/foraging note : There are many deadly mushrooms and plants out there- many varieties can be difficult to identify. If you go foraging, always forage with an expert and never EVER eat mushrooms or other plants if you are not 110% sure that they are safe.


Before heading into the woods, I’ve been saying a quick prayer to Artemis- Deity of the Woods and the Wild. I’ve been working with Her a bit since coming to the countryside, and She has really become a go-to deity of the woods for me :bow_and_arrow: :deer::woman:

As we head into the woods, I say a mental prayer. It’s different everytime, but goes something like this:

Oh, Artemis- Lady of the Woods
Watch over us as we walk your paths
So that we may return home again safe.
Guide us through burrough and brush
Over hill and riverbed and field
And should the Lady like,
Fill our basket with forest bounty

So far we haven’t come home empty-handed yet! :pray::heart:


Forest floor

Blessings to all from the countryside and woodlands of Poland.

Love and Light! :evergreen_tree: :sparkles:

That’s a beautiful spiral @JasmineTheBlueJ! You did a great job with that. I hope you left it like that to make other people wonder if there were faries in the park! Your other pictures are lovely too!

Thank you @TheTravelWitch_Bry! I’m glad you liked it! Although I’m the type of person who would never leave their hobbit hole unless I have to. No travels for me if I can help it.

What a lovely prayer! I’m sure Artemis quite likes it, even if it is a bit different each time! Good job!

For this challenge, I did a couple of things. I did a road opener spell. It’s already working, I got a new job!!!
And I also try astral projection every night. I remember a few. I went to a forest with flowers made up of flowers. And there was a waterfall so majestic! And nature everywhere, even fairies so petite and prettyfull!!

Last but not least, I wear crystal jewelry!! It’s considered magic on the go!!! I wear these the most:


The one on the left has moonstone and rose quartz. The one in the middle is clear quartz and the last I recently placed a rose quartz inside for self love.

Thank you @TheTravelWitch_Bry for the opportunity to do this challenge!!! :love_letter:

Happy Anniversary to @IrisW! I’m happy that it went well for you.

I really have to come up with something for this challenge. Time has gotten away from me this week. I will think on it a little bit & post something for it later today.

Firstly Happy anniversary @IrisW! :revolving_hearts:

For this challenge, I had every intention (there’s that word) of heading to the beach for sunrise :sunrise:
However, lack of sleep last night caused my need to stay in bed longer. SO, I ventured into my back yard with my little travel altar to meditate beneath my dad’s favorite tree, our leaning maple. I sat in the grass beneath her listening to the sounds of nature. It was wonderful :revolving_hearts:

I was trying to wait for the wooden box to come in, but this is cutting it close.

I went through my space to see what I thought I could use in my travel altar.

I chose 1 white candle, 1 black candle, a lighter, incense cones & stand, quartz crystal, Amethyst, rose Quartz, Carnelian, Red Jasper chips, Lapis Lazuli, & Tiger Eye chips in bottles, 3 seashells, my wand, & my very 1st altar cloth :grinning:
