Merry Meet !
Here is your weekly update about 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 one-day events!
[ [ Moon Phase: New Moon ] ]
We will be blessed by the presence of the New Moon (sometimes called the Dark Moon) on Wednesday, March 2nd - 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 specific 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 the current moon phase for your location as well as a daily lunar spell on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page
[ [ Group Ritual : Together with Your Coven ] ]
Join in for a shared group ritual meditation and coven chat on Thursday, March 3rd - this activity is open to all active coven members
The group meditation ritual has step-by-step instructions that you can join in on your own schedule at any time during the day
If you’d like, there is a scheduled hour-long live Zoom chat to do the ritual as a group as well as meet and greet fellow coven members
Group meditation rituals and conversations are held every Thursday. Feel free to visit last week’s group ritual to get an idea about what to expect.
Please note that group rituals are hosted in A Sacred Space - you must be logged into your active Spells8 account to access the ritual.
