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: Full Moon ] ]
Depending on your location, you will be blessed by the light of this moon phase tonight: Monday, September 20th .
The full moon of September is called the Full Corn Moon and is the final full moon of summer. This moon is ideal for abundance and transformation .
Explore a special moon ritual and learn more about this moon on the Spells8 Full Corn Moon Ritual Page .
This moon is extra special, as it is the closest full moon to the Autumn Equinox. Due to this proximity, this week’s full moon also goes by the name Harvest Moon. For a special spell for the occasion, visit Harvest Moon Spell
You can also learn more about the unique meaning of each full moon in What’s in a Full Moon Name?
Every 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 additional full moon inspiration, visit What to Do During the Full Moon .
No matter the moon phase, 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
