We will be blessed by the presence of the New Moon (sometimes called the Dark Moon ) on Friday, April 1st - although the exact time will vary according to your location.

New-Moon-Spells

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 :new_moon:

Additionally, the New Moon Spells and Rituals Page has more information and a list of recommended spells for this special time :new_moon:

A New Moon on April Fool’s- will you be doing any shadow work, or will you use the lack of a moon to your advantage for some silly pranks? :wink:

A note that this month there will be two new moons- the first is this Friday, April 1st and the second is on Saturday, April 30th.

The second new moon later this month will thus be what is called a Black Moon :black_circle: :sparkles:

I just want to take a moment out of my day to say thanks to Scott Cunningham. Though his books are older now, he is where a lot of people started with Wicca and witchcraft and for that, he deserves a prayer of gratitude :pray:t3:

Also, I hadn’t realized until I did my April bullet journal spread yesterday that there are two New Moons this month! That second one will sure be interesting :thinking:

Merry Meet Monday!
This week is still uncertain as to what I’ll be doing…Sunday is my bday so there’s that. The Big 50. I’m back to experiencing interrupted sleep, waking up at 3 and then usually 5 am most days. I get up with Tim at 6:30 Fri-Mon so it makes those days especially sluggish.
My son had a outpatient surgical procedure last Thursday to repair the hole in his esophagus that he has been dealing with for the last year, and the doctor believes that is what was causing the acid levels in his blood. So they repaired the hole with silicone to seal it shut. Today is his first day back to work.
I’m creating two sigils today to go on my wall downstairs and one for the upstairs wall that is shared with the little boy next door that I have mentioned, there is still issues going on and I just want to extend some positive energy and a protection sigil for him.
Hope everyone has a great week full of opportunities and blessings from the universe.
Blessed Be,
Rowan

Happy Monday everyone! Hope y’all have a good week! Two new moons in the month, eh? Neat!

Congratulations to @Debra2 for all you do for the community! You rock!

Happy early birthday, @Rowan! I hope you have a good one.

I got my skin graft today finally y’all! Whoo! It cost like six thousand bucks for a tiny slip of faux skin that encourages skin growth. I hope if someone mugs me it’s for my purse and not my leg. On the plus side, it’ll help heal this hole in my leg that’s been there forever. On the minus side, it’ll smell like three-day-old fish after a day or two and that’s normal! It’s not infected like that or anything. I can’t unwrap it for a week so it’ll be next Monday before I know if it’s helping or not. Cross your fingers.

So that’s what I’ve been doing this morning. Hope everyone else’s day has been going as good as mine!

Sorry for the late reply, definite case of Mondays today at this household. :flushed:

Congratulations!!! Awesome job @debra2! That is a gorgeous badge on you! :partying_face: :tada:

I think for the New Moon :new_moon: I am going to cleanse my space & work on my altar & possibly at least a small place for my ancestor altar. I just feel like I need something for them. They have helped shaped me into who I am today & what I am working on to relearn & correct with their guidance.

I had my first appointment today & then Thursday I will have another 1 after my lab work for my procedure on Friday. I also have to pick up Hibiclens… for my wrist… not even my wrist… a cyst on my wrist that is being removed. Something else very different, I had to have a Covid test 2 weeks ago & another 1 the day before. Even in 2020, I didn’t have to wash in Hibiclens & take 2 Covid tests. Just amazing to me how different places have or haven’t changed their policies.

I have some things to figure out & usually at night/evening I spend time with my husband & Peanut, so that’s why I’m off & on real quick in the evenings. :smiling_face:

@Sarall Cheers to that- the Black Moon is pretty exciting! :star_struck:

@Amethyst Congrats on your skin graft, Amethyst- I hope it helps your leg (and isn’t too stinky- but hey, gotta do what ya gotta do to heal!) :pray::heart: Glad to hear you had a good day, I hope the rest of the week is just as nice for you :blush:

@Debra2 The pleasure is all mine, thank you for all the love and joy you share, Debra! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: May it continue to be a wonderful week for you!

Merry Meet everyone!

Currently enjoying a few days off before things get fully underway with my new business.

Had a lovely leaving do with a small group of close workmates on Saturday, and topped up my hair colour for it!

Today I’m treating myself to a glass of wine with bread and olives for lunch, and once again TK Maxx has provided fabulous witchy finds!

I really like your hair, I think the blue color is your color. A blue Iris! :wink:
Congratulations on the business and lots of good luck and well wishes for you. :butterfly:
I plan on getting my hair cut short as soon as it’s warmer. I need to lighten the load! I was thinking about adding a silvery purple color too :wink:
