Merry Meet !
Welcome to your weekly update about what’s happening in both the forum and the witchy world at large
Here’s the news for this week:
Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on these one-day-only events!
[ [ Moon Phase : Full Moon ] ]
On Wednesday, July 13th , the skies will flourish with the beauty of a Full Moon. The exact time of peak illumination will depend on your location.
The full moon of July is called the Full Buck Moon . This moon marks a time where the antlers of deer have grown to their fullest and it is time to harvest and store the hay. Now is the time for Solar Magick and drawing on the magick of the color gold
Explore a special moon ritual and learn more about this moon on the Spells8 Full Buck 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
Ready for Moon Magick? You can find current moon information for your home as well as complementary spells and rituals to draw on its energy on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page
[ [ Group Ritual : Together with Your Coven ] ]
