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

Full-Beaver-Moon-Spell-Witch-Magic

Tuesday, November 8

This week, the skies will flourish with the beauty of a Full Moon- the moon of November is called the Full Beaver Moon :beaver:. The exact time of peak illumination will depend on your location.

Explore a special moon ritual and learn more about this moon on the Spells8 Full Beaver Moon Ritual Page . The ritual draws on the energy of this moon that is associated with hard-work, family, home, teamwork, and achievements. This is an excellent time for taking casting a spell of self-discipline and success :sparkles:

Blood-Moon-Witches-Ritual

As this full moon is also a lunar eclipse (see below for more details on the eclipse!) it is also called a Blood Moon :red_circle:. You might consider channeling the energy of the season with this special Blood Moon Ritual to connect with your ancestors :headstone:

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.

[ [ Lunar Eclipse :black_circle: ] ]

Lunar-Eclipse-Candle-Ritual-Magick

Tuesday, November 8

This week’s Full Moon is extra special as it is also a Lunar Eclipse! :black_circle: Eclipses open special opportunities and unique energy that a witch may use in their practice. Check out the Lunar Eclipse Guide for ideas and spellwork suggestions.

The Community badge is an impressive badge to earn any month, but the month of October was on fire in terms of new members and introduction posts- we were blessed with an extraordinarily busy month!

Yet despite the abundance of introduction posts, I saw a warm greeting message from @Marsha and @Amethyst in every single introduction post I checked for the entire month of October :fire:

Just want to give an extra round of applause to you too- that was a heroic feat!!! :clap::heart:

Yay to @Mistress_Of_Herbs! You’ve added much to the forum since you got here! You go, girl!

And thank you, Bry, for mentioning me! There were a lot of new people and I hope they all stay! It’s nice to meet new people!

I’m off to my regular doctor’s appointment and when I come home I’ll figure out what I’ll be doing for the Full Moon tomorrow. I’ve also been a bad girl and haven’t started my book club book, got to get on that.

Possible apartment inspection on Wednesday but Sally went on a cleaning fit for me Friday so I’m pretty much ready for it. They haven’t given out any notices, I’ve heard it by word of mouth so they might not be coming into the apartments just into the halls. We’ll see.

Other than that, not much going on for me this week. I hope you all have a lovely Monday and a great Full Moon!

Oh, and @MeganB? First! LOL!

Every shout-out that goes your way is well-deserved, Amethyst- you’re a big beacon of light and blessings and the coven is so lucky to have you here! :sun_with_face: :two_hearts:

Full Moon, Beaver Moon, Blood Moon, Taurus Moon, Lunar Eclipse- there are so many angles and ways to work with this moon it’s enough to make a witch’s head spin! :crazy_face: I’m sure you’ll find a lovely way to celebrate- wishing you all the best with your spellwork, appointment, reading, and the potential apartment check too. You’ve got all this, Amethyst! Cheering for you! :partying_face:

:joy:

I love this little competition- and I apologize that the MMM is written up and launched at somewhat different hours each week! :bowing_woman: I usually do a full check of the forum first and then put it all together.

Although perhaps the mystery adds some suspense? Lol!

Thank you, Amethyst- wishing the same to you! Have a blessed week! :full_moon: :sparkles:

Merry Meet Monday, and Congrats to @Amethyst @Marsha and @Mistress_Of_Herbs.
My handfasting ceremony went beautifully, it was a little hotter than earlier predicted but I couldn’t have asked for a more in sync day.
We also went camping for a our “Sweetie-Moon” just the two of us, by the ocean, dancing in the moonlight under the stars and by the waves.
Although not much planned for this week, I thought I’d share some pictures of our ceremony.
















Apologies for so many pics…lol.

Have a blessed week Witches!
