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 events!
[ [ Moon Phase : Full Moon ] ]
Look above! A beautiful moon is blessing the skies TONIGHT: Monday, January 17th . The exact time of peak illumination will depend on your location.
The full moon of January is called the Full Wolf Moon . This is a moon that calls for strength within the darkness of winter and is good time to draw on the energy , eundurance , and communal nature of the wolf
Explore a special moon ritual and learn more about this moon on the Spells8 Full Wolf Moon Ritual Page .
While each moon has its own unique qualities, every full moon is a celebrated time where the energy of the moon is at its 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
You can find the current moon phase for your location as well as a daily lunar spell on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page
