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:
Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on these events!
[ [ Moon Phase: New Moon ] ]
We will be blessed by the presence of the New Moon (sometimes called the Dark Moon) on Wednesday, October 6th - although the exact time will vary according to your location.
While many witches see the New Moon as a time of rest and reflection, others choose to cast magick speicifc to this phase of the moon cycle. You can learn more about the symbolism of the New Moon in Moon Magic: New Moon
Additionally, the New Moon Spells and Rituals Page has more information and a list of recommended spells for this special time
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
[ [ Group Ritual- Together with the Coven ] ]
Join in for a shared group ritual meditation and coven chat on Thursday, October 7th - this activity is open to all members of the forum
