Wishing everyone a very Merry Meet Monday !
Here’s a peek at exciting happenings in both the forum and the witchy world at large this week:
[ [ Moon Phase: First Quarter Moon ] ]
Depending on your location, you will be blessed by the light of this moon phase Wednesday, October 13th .
The Moon Magick Guide to First Quarter Moon Magick on Spells8 says the following about this special moon phase:
The First Quarter Moon
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 nature are developing.
