A merry meet to all
After unlocking the Solar Plexus Chakra in last week’s group ritual, hopefully you have been enjoying increased confidence and energy With that extra boost of positivity, we a ready to head into the period of darkness quickly coming our way this week
As explored in the current Merry Meet Monday news post, this Thursday is one busy day- there are many exciting things going on! Among all of the happenings, there are two big astrological events coming up.
This Thursday, we will experience both a New Moon in Gemini and a Solar Eclipse
The New Moon (also called the Dark Moon) is approached in various ways by witches. Some seen it as a time of rest and reflection, while others pursue Shadow Work, and others work special New Moon spellwork .
Eclipses (both Solar and Lunar) are similar to the New Moon, as the way they are approached various greatly from one witch to another. Some believe it is best to refrain from spellwork at this time, while others enjoy doing Shadow Work or drawing on the unique energy of this celestial event .
Whether you enjoy working New Moon/Eclipse magick or prefer to take a reflective rest during these times, you are invited to join your coven in a group ritual to celebrate these two exciting celestial events!
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!
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 - Jun 10) : Enjoying the New Moon Solar Eclipse
The following meditation invokes the soothing and reflective nature of a time when the moon vanishes from the sky . It is the Spells8 New Moon Rising Chant that has been adapted slightly to suit a tea ritual
Begin by tidying up and cleaning the space where you will make/enjoy your beverage
Prepare your drink while breathing deeply, focusing on and being mindful of each of your movements
As you sit down to meditate with your drink, you may choose to light a white candle and place it in front of you
Say the words of the Chant:
Her other side.
She is my Mother,
Her light my seed.
Nature’s the Temple
for all my needs.
New moon sweetly rises,
I see all constellations.
A time of new beginnings,
A time for restoration.
Hear my words,
Give me speed.
Clear my paths,
So mote it be.
This chant is available in audio/video format! Feel free to listen along with the chant here
- Sip your drink and relax as you watch the flame of the candle. Focus on nurturing the light you hold inside yourself
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!
