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: New Moon ] ]
Look to the skies! Early morning today, Monday, May 30th, as well as in the skies tonight, we are blessed by the presence of the New Moon (sometimes called the Dark 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 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, June 2nd - 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
