A warm welcome and very Merry Meet Monday to all !
Here’s the latest about upcoming events and forum news:
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- Thursday, January 28th
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 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
