The portal to the Other Realm

The Other Realm is an other-dimensional world set aside as a home for witches, mystical beings and other members of the magical community. It has never been properly defined; it seems to have qualities of an alternate earth (having divisions like Earth similar to Canada and the Caribbean islands) possessing seasonal and astronomical cycles and periods but having characteristics outside the regular Laws of Nature. Said to be millions of light years away from the Mortal Realm (that is Earth and its Solar System), it is accessed through a portal resembling a small black hole or by mystical teleportation aka Molecular Transference. Zelda Spellman and Hilda Spellman located their portal in the Linen Closet of their Westbridge residence. The portal doesn't seem to be prejudiced to travelers, often transporting mortals to the Other Realm who stumble through it.


In the Other Realm, there are several places and locations to play, to find jobs or the Witches Community service, Examples like these below:



(Appears in Jenny's Non-Dream) Limbo appears to be a neutral local where all the adjacent parts of the Other Realm can be accessed. When Jenny Kelley stumbles through the portal, she confuses it with the fictional realm of Narnia and discovers everyone has to limbo to get where they are going.

The Rules of the Realm

The Rules of the Realm are strict rules that all witches that live in the Other Realm must follow. The rules are always announced by the official Rule Bearer. The Witches Council is also the important mainly organization in the Other Realm with laws that govern the magical population in both the mortal and the other realm.


Astronomy is mentioned from time to time in the series. The most prominent showing is in "Mars Attracts" where Hilda, Zelda and Sabrina go for a vacation. This indicates that witches use other planets for remote locations. Venus was also mentioned to have a currency way lower than Earth, when it was mentioned in "Humble Pie" a New Mexican deli opened up at Orion's Belt. Many witches are also born in bizarre places in the galaxy, such as Aunt Irma who was born in The Big Dipper (which was mentioned as an armpit) and Amanda is from the fourth galaxy of the Other Realm.
