Warm greetings to all!
Well done once again to all those who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge - The Magick of Music
After treasuring the wonders of magickal music, it’s time to tune in to other treasures in our lives. And for all that we hold dear- it is worth the time to effort to keep those precious things safe
The theme for this week’s challenge was suggested by the wonderful @sarah29 and is…
Protection spells come in a plethora of forms- ranging from shrouding spells, blessing work, physical protection, spiritual warding, and more.
It is common for other types of spellwork to be followed by protection spells, and many general types of spellwork (such as blessings and prayers) often incorporate elements of protection and defense .
Protection spells are common and well-used- they are both a very versatile and useful aspect of magick!
This week’s challenge is all about exploring how you can use protection magick in your practice .
Are you ready? It’s… CHALLENGE TIME!

A “ward” is a form of magickal barrier that can be used to both protect things within and keep negative forces out. While not all witches use circles in their practice, casting a circle is a common form of protective warding used in magick.
There are other ways to cast wards and protective barriers- on both yourself, others, and inanimate objects.
There are many ways to use protective magick- feel free to be creative with your challenge entry this week!
