Wishing everyone a very Merry Meet Monday !
Here’s a peek at forum happenings this week.
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 on Wednesday, May 26th.
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 .
May’s full moon is called the Full Flower Moon and represents a very powerful time of year. Draw on the energy and passion of the Flower Moon by following along with the Full Flower Moon Spell on Spells8
You can also learn more about the unique meaning of each full moon in What’s in a Full Moon Name?
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
[ [ Celestial Event: Lunar Eclipse ] ]
In addition to the full moon, certain parts of the world will experience a Lunar Eclipse on Wednesday, May 26th.
A Lunar Eclipse is a dark time with unique effects on spellwork. Every witch forms their own opinion about working or abstaining from magick during this time.
Learn more and consider working some insightful shadow magick with a Lunar Eclipse Ritual :
To find out if you are in range of the Lunar Eclipse and to chat more about it, visit the discussion Super Flower Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius.
