Merry meet to all!
How is everyone’s Crown Chakra after last week’s group ritual? The theme of connecting to the Higher self continues this week, but is now about sensing a crown of another kind- a crown of mighty antlers
The Full Buck Moon is the peak of the summer and represents a connection to higher powers, fulfillment, and the beginning of preparation for the winter that will eventually come
In addition to “Buck Moon”, this moon goes by several other names as well:
The moon will be filling over the coming days to reach full illumination on Friday/Saturday this week (location depending)- this is a wonderful opportunity to channel your inner Stag and celebrate the heart of summer!
Find some time to join in for shared spellwork and a tea meditation - an easy and beginner-friendly meditative practice to help you focus your mind and draw in your energies
Although we are physically spread out across the world, it is possible to come together and share our energies and support when we share a quiet moment together.
Let’s enjoy a relaxing and peaceful tea time as a coven- you are warmly invited!
[From Gillie and Marc]
Choose your beverage . While tea is the standard, it is perfectly fine to do this meditation with coffee, juice, hot cocoa, or any other beverage
Focus your intent . You can follow any style or type of meditation you choose- focus on your breath and thoughts and be present in this moment
Work some magick! While meditation is a magickal and healing process all on its own, you may choose to add an additional element of magick to your tea time.
(Optional - Jul 22) : A Cup for the Full Buck Moon
Welcome in the magick of the Full Buck Moon with a tea ritual to honor the occasion!
The following ritual is a condensed version of the Full Buck Moon Ritual and Spell, adapted to suit a tea meditation. For the full version of the original ritual, visit the page on Spells8
Before beginning, you may choose to enhance your spellwork by lighting a golden candle- symbolizing the might of the summer stag
Focus as you prepare your drink- be aware of each sound and scent like a deer on alert
Breathe deeply as you hold your drink, imagining each breath to be charging the air around you with golden light
Before you take the first sip, say the words of the Buck Moon Chant:
- You may also consider doing the following visualization:
Then, for a few silent moments, imagine yourself as a magnificent stag with a beautiful rack of antlers, standing in a clearing in your forest as the Summer sun goes down and a Full Buck Moon arises. Feel yourself in the fullness of your power, take that power into your heart.
- Relax and continue to breathe deeply as you enjoy your beverage and the power of the rising Full Buck Moon
NOTE : For those who enjoy Guided Meditations, this 10 Minute Peaceful Forest Walk Meditation is a lovely accompaniment to the Buck Moon Ritual
When your meditation is complete, enjoy the good vibes! Meditation helps to foster a clear mind, increased focus, and boost of positivity- carry these good feelings with you through the rest of your day or night!
