[ [ Moon Phase: Last Quarter Moon :last_quarter_moon: ] ]

Last-Quarter-Moon-Phase-Spells

Wednesday, November 16

Look to the skies! Tonight we will be blessed by the light of the Last Quarter Moon. The exact time you will see this moon phase depends on your location :telescope:

The Spells8 Moon Magick Guide to Last Quarter Moon Magick lists this moon phase as the ideal time to remove negativity and banish things that are holding you back. It is a good time for spellwork that deals with laying things to rest and banishment.

Waning-Moon-Magick-Ritual-Ideas

This moon phase is part of the Waning Cycle :arrow_double_down: , so check out the Waning Moon Spell Page for more information including history, meanings, and a collection of spells and rituals that work in harmony with this moon phase :last_quarter_moon:

Ready for More Moon Magick? You can find current moon information for your location as well as complementary spells and rituals to draw on its energy on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page :sparkles:

Congratulations @Mistress_Of_Herbs and thank you for all the love you give to the forum.

I’m going to learn about Hecate this week. She sounds interesting.

First of all, congratulations @Mistress_Of_Herbs! You’re on a two-week streak! That’s great! You bring so much to the community, thank you!

Secondly, I love, love, LOVE that last image you put up with the moon, Bry! Did you write that? It’s awesome!

Slow week for me this week. I go to the doctor tomorrow instead of today. A different doctor too, I’m going for a breathing test. That’ll be loads of fun. Not.

Then on Wednesday, I plan on getting my hair cut. That’s very much needed. Other than that I don’t have many plans for the week. I’m waiting to see what the next weekly challenge is before I figure out what I’m doing for the Moon.

Hope you all have a good week! Enjoy November, it’ll be over before you know it!

Congratulations on the shout-out @Mistress_Of_Herbs :heart: You definitely deserve it! You bring such a light to the forum here and I, along with everyone else I’m sure, really appreciate you!


I don’t have much going on this week, I don’t think? Just the usual homeschool lessons, work, etc. I’m dealing with doctors and medication stuff today but I think I’ve got it pretty much handled :+1:

Congratulations @Mistress_Of_Herbs for the shout out!

My plans this week are to stop working 11 hour days and get more home stuff done and to connect more with my family and on here. I have been so distracted and disconnected I have been barely doing any tarot at all and no spell work, well ritual spell work. I set intentions regularly but I need the ritual and meditation to put some more power into it.

I hope drs appts go well for you both @MeganB and @Amethyst. Have fun with your new do @Amethyst !

Blessed week everyone!

Hello all. Wishing you a merry week.

Congrats @Mistress_Of_Herbs! I appreciate all the love and knowledge you share with us.

This week is a week of busy work and rest at home for me. I’ve been feeling off the last few days so I’m planning to do some meditation and energy work.

@TheTravelWitch_Bry I am so looking forward to Nov. 16th When I opened my laptop, this is what I saw:

# Return to Sender’: Easy Karmic Justice Spell with Lemon
Posted on May 14, 2019 in Protection Spells

I am so glad you posted the resources on Hekate. I will be “cramming” them in tonight. I also need to get ready for the Karmic Justice Spell. With all the negative bs going on around me, I really need to stay focused. Thank you again. Blessed Be!

Maudot7, I can relate with you on so many levels. I have to get organized and write down my intentions. I need a morning ritual list and write down “things” to do during the day, then I need a nighttime list/ritual list to follow and end my evening. Blessed Be.
