[ [ Moon Phase: First Quarter Moon :first_quarter_moon: ] ]

Depending on your location, you will be blessed by the light of this moon phase tonight- Friday, February 19th

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 :sparkles:


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.

Happy moon magick! :first_quarter_moon:

Yay, @Amethyst! Congrats. Only one more week to go. :smiley:

I have a doctor appointment today. (pink eye)
A book study with friends tonight.
They are calling for 11 inches of :cloud_with_snow: :snowflake: :snowman_with_snow: tonight. :open_mouth:

An interview on Thursday. IDK if I really want the job but I’m keeping my options open and I am interviewing at many places.

Friday I am going to my first concert since last March. :partying_face:


This entire post filled me with such joy! I’m beyond grateful to have found this coven


OH MY GOSH!!! I am so excited for you I cannot wait to hear all about the concert! I’m going to live vicariously thru you ok!!! Oh I’m so happy right now! I cannot wait to hear live music again!!!


Congratulations @Amethyst! Great job!

I am crossing my fingers for you that things work out for your highest good @praecog29 & I’m insanely jealous that you are going to a concert! That is so exciting! I used to go to them all the time. I had 2 gets canceled on me when Covid hit & have been dying to go to another one. Please let me know how it goes & how much fun you have. Who are you going to be seeing?

I missed the last tea meditation last week. There was a reason, but it escapes me right now. I will be sure to make this one though.

This is vacation week for my daughter from school. So I will have her to putter around with all week. I hope everyone has a great week & I will see you all around the forum.


I’m getting drops for my eyes. They’ll be in tomorrow. 🤷 But I’ll be better before my interview. Yay!

I’m seeing Kim Walker-Smith. She’s the most amazing Christian worship singer. It confuses my friends a ton that I listen to Christian worship songs but I worship The Lady. That’s eclectic witchcraft for you. :joy: I’m also seeing Kari Jobe and violinist​:violin: Lindsey Stirling this year. I was going to Welcome to Nightvale (favorite podcast of mine) but it got cancelled after being postponed. Halsey cancelled her tour, too. :sob:


I was just on FaceBook & one of my favorite concerts to go to is being live-streamed again this year. I watched it last year, but it just isn’t the same as going to a concert.


I hope your eyes feel better & you will do great at your interview. It’s always good to have options rather than be stuck somewhere that you aren’t comfortable @praecog29


Aww, thank you, dear heart! I’m honored! Thanks so much for the recognition!

Thanks, @praecog29! Good luck at your doctor’s appointment today. And be careful coming home from your study session, we don’t want you lost in the snow until Spring! Good luck on Thursday also!

We’re grateful you found us! :hugs:

Thanks, sweetie! I hope you and Peanut have some fun this week!

That’s good. Pink eye is also a symptom of Covid so I’m doubly glad you got checked out.

As for me, I’m late posting today, because I had an appointment with my leg doctor. My leg is doing much better, the ulcers in my legs are shrinking a lot but I still have a nasty infection so more antibiotics for me.

The good news is my leg doctor also got a copy of my CT Scans for my heart doctor and congratulated me on being all clear so that’s great! One less thing to worry about!

Not much else going for me this week, other than the fact that I’ll be celebrating another trip around the sun on Wednesday! I plan on having pizza and birthday cake from the store. But stay tuned for my recipe posting today, if I was up to baking from scratch, that would be what I’d bake for myself. LOL.

Hope everyone is keeping warm and is having a lovely week!


I’m so happy for you! That must feel like a big weight being lifted! I’m happy that your leg is healing, it may be slow to do so, but it will be fine. Patience is key on this one I think.

I’m sure Peanut & I will get into something. She made herself a custom nest today when she had lunch. Complete with post dessert dessert. :rofl:


Thank you! Yeah, I was very relived. I told the doctor that I’d act surprised when the heart doctor told me the results. And yeah, it’s taking forever for the legs to heal but they’ll get there. Slowly but surely. Thanks again love!


Wishing you the best of luck with your interview on Thursday, @praecog29- you are smart to keep your options open and try new things! I hope the drops help your pink eye and please stay safe- 11 inches is way too much snow! :snowman_with_snow:

It is a pleasure, @AliceInWonderdab- thanks for being here! :hugs:

I know the feeling, @Siofra- concerts seem like a distant memory now! Gosh, my last concert was Todrick Hall in November, 2019. I’m looking forward to being able to hear live music again soon too! :musical_note: :blush:

Sorry about the antibiotics, but that aside it sounds like you’ve got a lot of good news, @Amethyst! I’m so happy that your leg is doing better, the heart doctor says you’re in the clear, and also- your birthday!!! Hope you have a wonderful and very blessed day, Kasie :birthday: :partying_face: :heart:


Thank you dearest! I’m planning on Burger King and cake at home, thanks to my helper.


Now that sounds like a fun celebration- enjoy the tasty goodies, Kasie! :yum: :two_hearts: Cheers to you!


Thank you, dear heart! I couldn’t decide between caramel brownies or an itty bitty carrot cake so I got both! Yum! My last overindulgence for a while. Hope you have a good day too!


Good for you- it’s okay to splurge on your special day! :partying_face: I hope the goodies were as tasty as they sound! :yum:


They were very good, but man my sugar is high! LOL.
