Wishing a very Merry Meet Monday to all!
Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on these events!
[[ Moon Phase: Last Quarter Moon ]]
Depending on your location, you will be blessed by the light of the Last Quarter Moon on Monday, December 7th - Tuesday, December 8th
The last quarter moon is a time of rest and the banishment of negative energies or forces in your life.
For more information about Moon Magick and specific spells recommended for the last quarter moon, visit the guide Moon Magic: Spells for Every Lunar Phase: Last Quarter and the Waning Moon Magick Guide.
No matter the moon phase, 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
