Consider the situation: I am wearing an Amulet of Proof against Detection and Location, giving me the following effect:

While wearing this amulet, you are hidden from divination magic. You can't be targeted by such magic or perceived through magical scrying sensors.

I want to cast the detect magic spell, which has a range of self. Am I correct in assuming that the spell targets me, and thus I will be unable to cast it until I remove it? None of the existing answers cover the eventuality where you are casting the spell, only whether or not you show up to somebody else with it.

    \$\begingroup\$ I closed this as a dupe because the questions, at least to me, are identical. "If I cast a nondetection spell on me can I also cast spells like detect magic on myself?" vs (paraphrase) "If I wear an Amulet can I also cast spells like detect magic on myself?". Where nondetection states "The target can't be targeted by any divination magic" and the Amulet states "You can't be targeted by [divination magic]" \$\endgroup\$ Commented Oct 4, 2022 at 18:30
