Merry Meet Monday - Forum News! April 26th 🌳

Wishing everyone a very Merry Meet Monday ! :sparkles:

Here’s a peek at forum happenings this week.

Upcoming Events :spiral_calendar:

Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on these events!

[ [ Moon Phase: Full Moon :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 :rose: 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 :sparkles:

You can also learn more about the unique meaning of each full moon in What’s in a Full Moon Name? :full_moon:

Aw thank you so much :hugs: IV had such an amazing time being a part of this Coven I’m glad I could give something back :heart: I have a few shifts this week but I’m hoping the weather stays dry so I can get the grass cut. We also opened up the hospitality sector and other retail shops today and long may that continue :crossed_fingers::crossed_fingers: oh and patiently waiting on the Full Moon to make my anointing oil :heart: I hope everyone’s week is filled with love and light :heart:


Congratulations @Liisa & @Amethyst! Great job from both of you.

Don’t forget that there is a group ritual/cleansing tonight too! It can be found here:

Monday April 26 Coven Cleansing with the Pink Super Moon Every coven member is encouraged to join us during their full moons tonight!

Welcome to all of the new coven members also! I haven’t been able to post much on the introductions page, but I will do better this week.

I only have 1 PT appointment this week & it’s my reevaluation! We are working on hips, core, & balance. So she will give me a regimen to work on until I see her again next year & let me know how or when to modify the program.

I hope everyone has a great week. My sleep is a wreck because I had to be up so early on Saturday & functioning to get my son to the airport. I’m hoping to have it corrected tonight. Right now I am having my first cup of coffee at 5:10 AM here. It smelled glorious & tastes wonderful! I love the first cup of coffee in the morning.


Congratulations @Liisa! That’s so great! You’re a great part of the coven!

And thank you for the honor of giving the most likes again. It’s easy to do, cause I like just about everything I read here!

@Liisa I hope you get your lawn cut. It’s getting that time again here too. Good luck with your anointing oil!

@Siofra thank you for the cleansing post. I’ll do that later on when I have the brain cells. Glad you’re down to one PT appointment, that’s great! Get some sleep though, it sounds as if you need it.

As for my goal for the Pink Moon is to eat less junk, so I’m waiting till tomorrow to get the energies of the waning moon. But I’ll do the coven cleansing today, that is such a good idea! And Happy Birthday to Spells8! :birthday: This place should be celebrated because it’s really special!

Have a good week everyone!


@Amethyst thank you, that means so much :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Congratulations to you too :tada: :tada: I wish you every willpower for your goal :heartpulse:

@Siofra Good luck with your PT appointment :heartpulse:


@Liisa, thanks for the willpower, I need it! LOL.


Congratulations to @Liisa and @Amethyst :clap:
Happy Birthday to Spells8! :gift::balloon::tada: I’ll be celebrating my birthday in a couple days too!!! Nothing special. Actually I don’t have any plans. My mom usually surprises me with a cake and a gift. And my siblings come over but they’re not doing well. That’s what facetime is for!!! :boom:
Ok I’ve got to sign for a package. Have a blessed day all!!!
