Merry Meet Monday - Magick News of the Week! May 30 - Jun 5 🕯

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: ] ]

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 :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:

You can find the current moon phase for your location as well as a daily lunar spell on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page :sparkles:

Whether it’s magickal or mundane, feel free to share your current happenings or give a shout-out to your fellow coven members in the comments below!

Blessed be! :sparkles: :candle:


Shout out to @Amara and @Garnet! Whoot! You ladies rock!

For the New Moon, I did a Release the Past spell and it went very well this morning. I want to start this new month off right, you know what I mean? It felt good to let go of some of my past problems.

It’s Memorial Day here in the States so I’d like to take a moment to thank all those that have served in our armed forces. And their families, it’s got to be difficult for them to see their loved ones go off to fight.

Other than that, there’s not much going on this week. I don’t have any doctor’s appointments or anything like that, so that’s good. I’m hoping to get some writing done today. We’ll see.

Have a good Monday everyone!


Thanks once again, am happy to have this week shout out again :heartbeat::heartbeat: I feel on top of the Moon
Am looking forward to celebrating the national creativity day I already sign up for it and am also looking forward to this week challenge,

Although my partner is really and needs my time, too😔


The top posters and sharers this week are:

  • @Amara- for sharing the most posts, on a two-week streak! :writing_hand:
  • @Garnet- for giving out the most hearts over the past week :heart:

Thank you so much Ladies for all you do, and congratulations :partying_face:
on your ‘Shiny New Badges’ :star2:


Congratulations @amara and @Garnet! This is my first full week of summer vacation and my husband and I are trying to get our house back in order! 2 of 4 children are away traveling with their grandpa (who also lives with us) so my house; while still very full, is quieter than usual. We have already packed up about 4 big boxes to donate and I am nowhere near finished. Our house is so very cluttered! Looking forward to a lovely evening of kabobs in the grill and kids in the pool tonight!


Congratulations @amara :rose: and @Garnet :rose:! Great job sharing forum love :two_hearts:

I had a great visit with my son and his girlfriend last week. We did some neat things here so it was like a staycation for me. I plan on sharing some pictures in the forum this week. I got some cool goodies I will show off too!! :smiley:

I missed last week’s challenge since I had company, I just couldn’t do it. I have this weeks planned for today so I am excited about that. I have some reading to catch up on in the forum too :wink:

Most important for today: :us:
Thanks to all the armed :military_helmet: forces that have fought, lived and died for the freedom of others. Bless Be :two_hearts: to all those still fighting today for freedom and justice :balance_scale:


Congratulations for the 2 week streak @amara & for spreading the love :heart: through the week @Garnet! We appreciate all that you ladies do. :tada:

I’m still waiting for people to arrive from out of state, so parts of my week are a little up in the air. I do have 2 appointments tomorrow though in the afternoon.

I’ll be taking this week day by day, so if anyone feels they would like to help with Brighid’s Flame, please feel free to do so :hugs:


@Siofra_Strega @marsha @Sarall @AileyGrey
Thanks everyone for the congrats :heartbeat::heartbeat:
Am blushing red now🤗


Update to MMM

This week’s group ritual post is now LIVE in the forum! You can find out more as well as ritual ingredients in the full post here:

6-3 Waxing Moon Crescent in Cancer Increase Emotion Heal

(Group Ritual - Jun 2) :ocean: Moon Magick: Rising Tides

The Waxing Moon is a time of increase and wish-setting, and it will find respite in the watery sign of Cancer later this week. The Crab of the Zodiac, whose ruling planet is the Moon herself, shows that this is a wonderful time to nurture positive emotions, encourage healing, and improve bonds with loved ones :heart:

Looking forward to the ritual with you all this Thursday!

Cheers, Infinite Roots! :coffee::waxing_crescent_moon: :sparkles:


Tomorrow is the official start to Hurricane Season and I have :sparkles: plans :sparkles: to go alone with the current waxing moon :waxing_crescent_moon: Hopefully it pans out and doesn’t storm like it did yesterday and I actually get to perform my ritual :laughing:

That sounds like it was much needed! I’m glad you’re feeling well this week!

Heyy, we did the kabobs and pool yesterday, too! How funny! :joy: I’m glad to hear that you and your husband are getting things back in order. I hope you enjoy your summer break!

I look forward to seeing what you have to share! :heart: And don’t worry, I missed last week’s challenge, too lol I’ll get it on another catch-up challenge and I’m sure you will too :blush:

One foot in front of the other :footprints:


It was! Thanks, love! I hope your week goes well too!


Congratulations @amara and @Garnet :tada::tada:

We had kabobs and water bottle sprinkle no pool :joy:@Amethyst and @AileyGrey

Gratitude to all who served

I’m really looking forward to this week! Perfect starting fresh with a new moon cycle :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Our pool time got cancelled due to an epic thunderstorm, but we will try again!


Our local pool is closed, no lifeguards. Again this year. Not that I’d go but that’s a bummer for kids.


Ohhhh that sounds amazing, Megan! :star_struck: I hope it all works out for you- please be safe, and I hope you have a great time with your ritual! :waxing_crescent_moon: :sparkles:

Oh wow! Sounds like storm season has already arrived in some place :cloud_with_lightning_and_rain: . I hope you’re able to reschedule your pool time for nicer weather! :sun_with_face:


It was great this morning! :sparkles: It’s the first time in a while that I’ve just felt right in a ritual space and felt the connection with what I was doing :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Our pool is in our backyard… so, it’s not hard! We are super lucky ducks!


That’s awesome- sounds like you had a really lovely ritual! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: It is such a good feeling when everything just clicks into place and flows. Congrats to you! :heart:

Sounds like you are all ready for summer! Nothing like daily pool parties to beat the heat :sunglasses: :sweat_drops:


Good morning everyone, I still feel in the dumps but still working through things.

A shout out to @amara and @Garnet, way to go ladies.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
