Wishing everyone a very Merry Meet Monday !
Here’s a peek at forum happenings this week.
Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on these events!
[ [ Moon Phase: First Quarter Moon ] ]
Depending on your location, you will be blessed by the light of this moon phase tomorrow- Tuesday, April 20th
You can find current moon information for your location as well as complementary spells and rituals to draw on its energy on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page
The Moon Magick Guide to First Quarter Moon Magick on Spells8 says the following:
This is an excellent time to take action regarding your deepest wishes and to address your biggest blockages. It is a great time for growth and self-healing . As a continuation of the previous phase, the energies present at this time can help you feel more lucid and aware of how your intuition and second natures are developing.
Looking for ideas for spells and rituals specific to the First Quarter Moon? The Waxing Moon Spell Page has a lot of information including history, meanings, and a collection of spells and rituals that work in harmony with this moon phase.
