The premise of the #30DaysMagicalRoots Challenge is deep, yet simple: do something magical and achievable every day. Find a moment in the day to renew your magical energy, because every witch knows what it’s like to feel burnout. Maybe you’re a seasoned witch seeking to further strengthen their foundations, or you may be a witchcraft beginner wanting a useful entry point to explore the basics and see what calls to you.
The #30DaysMagicalRoots Challenge checklist is the brainchild of Nicole, Michelle Simkins, Aurora Moone – and now you can take part in the challenge yourself!
How does the 30 Days Magical Roots Challenge work?
The challenge was launched on 1st August 2017. However, you can take part at any time.
First, visit the Plentiful Earth Wiccan Chat page. Enter your name and email address to get a digital PDF of the checklist.
The PDF checklist gives you a magical practice to complete each day, or when you can. Each daily item on the checklist will be a small but perfectly-formed activity to strengthen your roots, or an act of contemplation or research.
Here’s a taste of the magical practice you will do on each day. Don’t worry, the PDF goes into a little more detail!
We’ve included links below to Mookychick articles you may find useful, and the PDF also includes very useful links.

Mini Q&A with Aurora Moone
We asked Aurora Moone to say a few words about how the challenge came about, and her words really resonated with us:
“We’ve been Witches for years, decades even, and we know exactly what it feels like to experience magickal stasis (or even magickal burnout)! Some of us remember reveling in the pure excitement of our first dozen spells and miss the feeling, while others are new to the craft and are wishing that they had more of a guideline to follow on their own personal paths.
We were overjoyed when the idea for a magical challenge spawned out of one of our most attended #WiccanChats, hosted on Twitter, in July 2017! The question that served as the magical catalyst was “Q6: If you created a Wiccan 30-Day Challenge for yourself, what would it be?” Nicole, Michelle, and I simultaneously realized that many, many Witches, worldwide, were looking for an Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook challenge that was based around magic and spirituality!
Thus, the #30DaysMagicalRoots Challenge was born. We felt pure joy as we realized that many Witches could (and would) now come together to celebrate their path openly, and in their own way!
While PlentifulEarth.com started the challenge on August 1, the 30 Days Magical Roots Challenge is made to be 100% flexible and fit perfectly into everyWitch’s personal timeline and path. We want everyWitch to know that they can start at any time! They have not missed any deadlines!”
Hundreds of witches around the world have taken up the challenge, and we invite you to try it for yourself – and, if you wish, share your journey with other witches with the #30DaysMagicalRoots hashtag.
We love you. Good luck, and may your path unfold well-lit beneath your feet, wherever you choose to wander.
