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: Full Moon ] ]
Depending on your location, you will be blessed by the light of this moon phase tonight- Monday, April 26th and into tomorrow Tuesday, April 27th.
The full moon is a celebrated time where the energy of the moon is at it’s most powerful. Now is a wonderful time to charge, cleanse, and absorb the potent energies of the moon.
For inspiration, visit What to Do During the Full Moon .
April’s full moon is called the Full Pink Moon and is a time of rebirth, love, and positivity. Draw on the unique energy of the Pink Moon by following along with the Full Pink Moon Spell on Spells8
You can also learn more about the unique meaning of each full moon in What’s in a Full Moon Name?
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
