Merry Meet Monday - Magick News of the Week! June 27 - July 3 🌚

Merry Meet !

Welcome to your weekly update about what’s happening in both the forum and the witchy world at large :mage:

Here’s the news for this week:

Upcoming Events :spiral_calendar:

Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on these one-day-only events!

[ [ Moon Phase: New Moon :new_moon: ] ]

This Wednesday, June 29th, we will be blessed by the presence of the New Moon. The exact time of the peak phase 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, traditions, and best-suited spellwork for this moon phase in the New Moon Rituals Guide :new_moon:

Congratulations :tada: you two! Thank you both for being amazing hearts of the forum!

Congratulations @Mistress_Of_Herbs and @Ostara!


Thank you both for Sharing From The Heart :heart:

With Gratitude :pray: Always…


Yaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!!! Thats so cool. Now that i can post beyond the allotted. :grin::grin::grin:


Congrats @Mistress_Of_Herbs and @Ostara!!

After solstice, a busy week of catch up challenge entries, a devastating ruling from SCOTUS, and a weekend celebrating my baby brother’s birthday, I am in need of a break! I use the new moon to set intentions for the next cycle. I am still trying to decide what I want to set for my next 28 days. The new moon will be in Cancer, which is nurturing, caring, intuitive, and empathetic. The shadow side spends all of its energy on others, while forgetting to show the same level of care to itself. I think it will be important for me to focus on taking care of myself just as much as I do everyone else.


Most excellent. Thanks for sharing. Hoping for a less stressful week for u honey. Thanks for all u do


I have a lite work week and nowhere to go this week so I think it will be! Time to catch up on my chores and then curl up with a book and tea.


Sounds like a wonderful idea. If u need or want any new recipes let me know. I have over 30 tea and oil recipes each. And im always creating new ones. U even made a covid tea, it relieves symptoms in just 3 days. I even have a menopause tea for anyone interested. My grandmother and mother swear by it


Anything for allergy relief?? Mine are kicking my butt this year! I have lavender and lemongrass in my diffuser at all times.


Omg yes maam i do. And my mom swears by it too. She has chronic sinusitis.


You just became my best friend :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :sneezing_face: :tea:


Congratulations on the shout out ladies! You deserve it!

@Amaris_Bane sounds like you’re working on some needed self-care. Good luck!

As for me, I had another good report from the leg doctor today so I’m really pleased. I won’t have to go in because it’s the holiday next week so that’s nice too! I don’t have anything planned for the new moon tomorrow, sad to say. I’ll need to figure that out. Maybe that’ll be my project this month. I like that idea of focusing on something each month that @Amaris_Bane mentioned, I may steal that. LOL!

Hope everyone is having a good start of the week!


Congratulations @Mistress_Of_Herbs & @Ostara! Thank you for all you contribute to the forum! :revolving_hearts:

@Amaris_Bane I’m sorry to hear about your allergies still bothering you. I wish I knew of something to help with those. I actually switched to that type of thing while working with my Chakras. It works out better for my learning & applying.

@Mistress_Of_Herbs… what is in the menopause one? I heard red clover & black cohosh are good for menopause. Im curious what to be prepared for :laughing:

I have an appointment tomorrow morning at 9 AM. My daughter is out of school, so i wont have to get her up & going, starting a half an hour before she needs to be up :flushed: She comes by it honestly though.

The rest of my week, we are taking as it comes. I definitely need a rest & recharge type of week. Maybe throw in some self care with a dash of self love :heart:


@Amaris_Bane If your not allergic see if you can find a local beekeeper and eat a spoonful of local honey daily. Also, if the beekeeper has bee pollen get some of that and start out with just a few grains a day and work up to a spoonful of that.
I used to live North of the Red river and that was what I used for my allergies. So much drainage! :sneezing_face:
If that doesn’t work maybe move to the desert and get a new set of allergies! :roll_eyes:
If I hear of anything else I will pass it on :wink: Feel better :rose: :rose: :rose:


Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll see if I can find one here. I only have them on spring but boy are they bad, this year in particular too.


I sent my recipe to u. Yes black cohosh is wonderful for menopause. Red clover is not used as much mainly for menstruating or pregnant women. It wont hurt u to use tho if u wish.

Good luck tomorrow with your appointment. My mom was taking estrogen for yrs, since she was 32, due to having a full hysterectomy. And i was so disheartened bc she would always tell me about her hot flashes, irritability, lack of sleep. And just feeling like crap. Since drinking this tea she no longer has the hot flashes or any of the issues, and doesnt take the estrogen.
