Merry meet to all!
Thank you once again to all those who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge- Salty Spellwork
After sharing our spellwork with salt, it’s time to share an experience of another kind- a bond that stretches across the coven, from one witch to another
The theme for this week’s challenge was suggested by the friendly @praecog29 and is…
Sharing Witchy Wisdom
Modern-day witches or pagans from the past,
Solitary folks or those in a local gathering,
Wiccans, Eclectics, people of all paths,
Practioners near and far, far and wide-
No matter where or when or why someone practices magick, we are all guaranteed to have something in common: we draw on wisdom from one another.
As a nod to the community and the interconnected nature of practicing magick, this challenge is an information exchange- sharing witchy wisdom amongst the coven!

This week, take a moment to realize and appreciate those who have contributed to your magickal practice in some way, shape, or form by sharing a piece of wisdom you discovered- whether it was from a coven member, a post in the forum, a book, or a witchy teacher in your life.
Doing so not only serves as a reflection of what you’ve learned, but also helps to spread useful witchy wisdom to others who could gain from it as well
So, are you ready?
It’s… CHALLENGE TIME!

If there’s no one or no post in particular that sparked something new in your practice, feel free to share witchy wisdom gained through another source.
In addition to the main Spells8 site, perhaps you find something neat on another site, in a witchy book, or through a pagan YouTube channel?
If so, feel free to share it- just remember to share the URL so others can check it out too!
Those who have delved into the world of magic know that witchy wisdom is all around us- we just have to know where to look!
