[ [ Moon Phase : Full Moon :full_moon: ] ]

A beautiful full moon will bless the skies above on Friday, November 19th . The exact time of peak illumination will depend on your location.

The full moon of November is called the Full Beaver Moon :brown_heart: and celebrates the energy of this time of year. This moon is ideal for hard work towards a goal, dutiful preparation, and cultivating success.

Explore a special moon ritual and learn more about this moon on the Spells8 Full Beaver Moon Ritual Page .

Full-Moon-Magic-Spells-Witchcraft

While each moon has its own unique qualities, every full moon is a celebrated time where the energy of the moon is at its most powerful. Now is a wonderful time to charge, cleanse, and absorb the potent energies of the moon.

For additional full moon inspiration, visit What to Do During the Full Moon :full_moon_with_face:

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


[ [ Celestial Event: Lunar Eclipse :black_circle: ] ]

In addition to the full moon, certain parts of the world will experience a Lunar Eclipse on Friday, November 19th .

A Lunar Eclipse is a dark time with unique effects on spellwork. Every witch forms their own opinion about working or abstaining from magick during this time.

Learn more and consider working some insightful shadow magick with a Lunar Eclipse Ritual

Good morning @TheTravelWitch, I hope you have a great start to your week too! :hugs:

I have a separate reason for enjoying November 16, it’s my Mom’s birthday :two_hearts: I always keep her close by on this day. Growing up it was something we both enjoyed because our birthdays were close together & they started off her favorite time of year. :hugs:

I will cleanse & charge some things under the Full Moon :full_moon: but, due to unforeseen circumstances, I most likely will be resting after I get items out onto my porch. I’m not going to make any Moon Water :droplet: this time around because I still have some on my altar from the last Full Moon. Not a full container, but enough to get through.

I hope everyone has a great start to their week! :blush:

Merry Meet Monday!

This Monday has a refreshed feel to it, and my rune/tarot pull is confirming that as well (eihwaz and the chariot).
Yesterday was a beautiful day at the ocean, a bit chilly but beautiful.

I’m excited for tomorrow to honor Hecate, and I’m not quite sure if I’ll work with the Full moon or relax with the partial lunar eclipse…
Decisions Decisions. :grin:
Congrats to @Garnet and @jessica72 :tada::tada:
May each of you have a Blessed week!

Good morning! :sunny:

Things are improving at work! We’re waiting on the background checks of three hires. Some of the best news I’ve heard lately. With the holidays fast approaching, we can’t afford to be short staffed.

Not sure yet if I’ll have to work on Thanksgiving (with the pandemic raging on last year I had it off for the first time in 4 or 5 years) , but if I do, the shift will be very short (only 4 hours) and I get time and a half.

Still thinking about what to do for my first Hecate’s Night. I’ll have to click the link for ideas. Whenever I’m stressed at work, I’ll go outside when I have a break (and if it’s not too cold), find the moon and say Hecate’s Chant. It always relaxes me.

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all are having a good week. Congrats to @Garnet and @jessica72 for sharing their talents this week. You’re awesome, ladies.

I’m roasting some garlic for Hecate tomorrow and saying a prayer. Hopefully, that will be enough in Her honor. Sort of like incense and offering all in one. LOL.

I may have to be out of town the Full Moon, I won’t know till Wednesday, but if I do I’m going to do the Beaver Full Moon ritual on the day before. I’ve even got some Fiery Oil of Protection to use on my candle.

Mundanely, it looks like my leg is infected. Again. So I’ve got to see the doctor on Wednesday about getting IV antibiotics again. Sigh. Hopefully, this will be the last round I need. I was hoping to be healed by this time but it looks like it’ll be the first of the year or February at this rate. It’s frustrating.

That’s about what I’m doing this week. Hope everyone else’s week is going better. :hugs:

It sounds like you had a lovely tradition together, @Siofra- I’m wishing you all the best as your honor your mother today :heart: Hope your week is off to a great start too! :blush:

I feel relaxed just looking at those beautiful ocean pics, @Rowan- thanks for sharing them :ocean: Wishing you a blessed Night of Hekate, have a blessed time! :two_hearts:

You’re so right, @Velle- it is one busy time of year! I was surprised how much there was this week while I was typing up the news post haha. So much to do- may you have a blessed time! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’m so happy to hear things are improving at your work, @Kasandra! :partying_face: Hopefully you’ll be able to take the day off, or at least get away with the short shift :pray: Wishing you a blessed Night of Hekate! :heart:

Sorry to hear about the leg infection, @Amethyst- is the same as it was before, or something new? Either way I hope it gets better asap! :pray: Wishing you a blessed Night of Hekate (enjoy that yummy and homey smell of roasted garlic! :garlic:) and hope your potential travels go well! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Thank you :blush:, I have some time for myself planned today once everyone is awake or on their way to where they need to be. I’m not sure what I am going to do for her today :birthday: but I will think of something. Even if it is as simple as journaling :pen: for a little bit.

I hope everyone that Honors Hekate tonight has a good experience that assists their Highest Good :star2: Does anyone use prayer beads for when they Honor Her? :thinking: I’m curious about them in general & their uses as related to deities.

@Amethyst I will keep you in my thoughts & daily candles :candle: for healing. I have been there with seemingly neverending medical concerns that seem to have no resolution. I hope they listen to what you are saying about your body & come up with a better plan to help you heal. :hugs: :two_hearts:

Thank you so much @Rowan! I appreciate the energy coming my way! :hugs:

Same thing different day. I hope to get a good antibiotic tomorrow.

Thank you so much @Siofra! If they’d only listened to me a couple of weeks ago, it could have been nipped into the bud by now. Sigh. It’s getting there, just slowly as heck.

Congratulations to @Garnet @jessica72 :hugs:

Good Afternoon, it’s been a crazy last few days. Extreme rain at the Coast (Vancouver BC) and with heavy winds with rain here at home. Today is much drier with only one shower of pebble snow ( not quite hail and not quite a rain). Earlier, the first week in November the Vancouver area has a tornado that started out in the ocean worked its way to land, and then back out to the ocean. I understand that Seattle got some of the same weather, rain, winds that Vancouver BC got, with lots of flooding.
Take Care everyone
Blessed Be :sparkles:
