[ [ Moon Phase: Full Moon :full_moon: ] ]

Depending on your location, you will be blessed by the light of this moon phase tonight- Sunday, March 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 :sparkles:

Full-Moon-Magic-Spells-Witchcraft

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 :star_struck:

The March full moon is called the Worm Moon :bug:. In 2021, the March Worm Full Moon will be a “Super Moon”- meaning that it will appear much larger than normal as it closely approaches Earth.

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

Oh thank you! I love this badge! I will keep it safe with the others.

I don’t have much going on this week except I have OT on Thursday. I have been working on a few craft things & I’m going to do my Catch Up Challenge today. I just need my daughter to get off to school.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I’m going to set up my altar for the day & I will be back.

Congratulations @Siofra! That’s such an accomplishment! Way to go!

As for me, I’ve been to the doctor again. My boo-boos are getting better but aren’t gone yet. They’ll get there though!

I also have a new Smartphone so I’ve been trying to figure that out. Does Spells8 have an app? Just wondering. I don’t want to miss out. Any other apps y’all think I might need?

Hope you all are having a good Monday!

I don’t believe there is an app yet, but @Francisco left some helpful instructions on how to add Spells8 to our home screens. :grinning:

I love all of the crafty things you have been sharing. I can’t wait to see more! :star_struck: Congrats on the badge. :slightly_smiling_face:

OOH! Thank you so much @praecog29! Now let’s see if I can figure this out. LOL.

@praecog29 thank you & you beat me to it! I used it to put Spells8 on my phone. It comes in handy when I post the Brigid Flame pictures & the ones of my projects. Usually, I am on my laptop if I am in here because it’s just easier for me to type & on my hands.

@Amethyst this is the 2nd time I have gotten the badge, maybe the 3rd? You & I were going back & forth with it last year :rofl: I just get chatty with my people. I’m happy that your boo-boos are getting better! I have to call the place that assists with getting people helpers. My house is taking a beating with my hand only working for a short time each day.

Good luck, it takes a while. But I don’t know what I’d do without Sally, so I’m very thankful for her. Hopefully you can get some help soon.

You’re very welcome, @Francisco- it’s always a delight to put the weekly news together and see the upcoming excitement! :star_struck: :cherry_blossom:

Congrats on your new smartphone, @Amethyst! It looks like @praecog29 came to the rescue. I hope you were able to set it up okay :blush:

Good luck and have fun with your crafts, @Siofra! :sparkles:

So, speaking of Spells8, I originally thought that Spells8 was our coven name. Lol, I didn’t know what to call it so I used that as the name when I was talking to my friend in town. I love Infinite Roots though, I think it’s a good name for us because we are so spread out & there’s an infinite number of people & places that we could be from.

I love how you worded this, Krissie :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

And cheers to that- I always called it the “Spells8 Coven” too! :grin: Now I think of ‘Spells8’ still working perfectly as an over-arching name for the main site and the forum board, with the users calling ourselves the Infitite Roots Coven :infinity: :deciduous_tree:

Kind of like how a house may have a name (like the ‘White House’, ‘Downton Abbey’, or even ‘Hogwarts’), but the people living within may refer to themselves by another title or name. I think of it like Spells8 is the home of the Infinite Roots Coven :house_with_garden: :heart:

I like that & how it was explained. I feel the same way. It just hit me when I was going through Spells8 for my full moon stuff.
