Merry meet everyone!
How is your Sacral Chakra energy after last week’s group ritual? Hope you are doing well and staying healthy!
This Thursday marks the rise of the Full Strawberry Moon- a wonderful time to get together with the coven to share a cup brimming with full moon energy

The Full Moon of June is called the Full Strawberry Moon- but it goes by many other names as well:
It is a moon of summer- of heat, passion, and love . You can learn more about the Strawberry Moon and find another great ritual for the occasion on the Spells8 Strawberry Moon Ritual page
If you’re ever unsure about the current moon phase for your location, you can check on the Spells8 Lunar Page

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 24) : A Cup for the Full Strawberry Moon
Welcome in the magick of the Full Strawberry Moon with a tea ritual to honor the occasion!
The following ritual is a condensed version of the Strawberry Moon Ritual and Spell, adapted to suit a tea meditation. For the full version of the original ritual, visit the page on Spells8 !
Make your tea and feel free to add sugar or honey, as sweeteners (a common component in love spells) help with binding and encouraging positive emotions
Breath deeply as you sip your drink, and meditate as you watch the candle burn
If you’d like, you may make an offering to your Goddess by writing a wish and placing it under the candle. You might also offer strawberries or other summer fruits (both the actual fruit or an image/drawing would suffice)
You can let your candle burn down or blow it out as needed, but leave your wish and offerings to sit out until the Full Moon sets and the sun rises tomorrow
The following day, dispose of your offerings and say a word of thanks to your Goddess
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!
Know that you are very welcome to share any thoughts or experiences you had during tea time in the comments below. Feel free to share some pics of your tea, your plans for the rest of the week, or just talk about what’s on your mind today.
Please note that the Zoom meet-up has been postponed this week. Apologies for any inconvenience, please look forward to more Zoom chats in the future!
May the light of the Full Strawberry Moon bring you many blessings and help to bloom happiness for you this week
Looking forward to a peaceful moment and a shared cup of tasty tea with you on Thursday. Until then, Love and Light!
