Congratulations :clap::confetti_ball: @Rowan for a double shout-out!


Congratulations @Rowan :blush:


Congratulations @Rowan! You’re awesome! Thanks for sharing the love with the forum!

I don’t know what I might do this week. I’ve got some Bloodstone coming in Friday, might do something with that. We’ll see.

Happy Monday everyone!


Congratulations @Rowan! :confetti_ball: Thank you for sharing!

@Amethyst… speaking of Bloodstone, I know I have at least 2 pieces… do you think that with the other stones in my Selenite bowl or in my printer’s box that I can figure out where I put them… That’s a resounding No. I think I found the bigger stone, but then I put it next to another stone & was like… nope I don’t think so :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: So I have to figure that out, I’m hoping to at least be sure of 1 of them. :joy:

I have a quiet day planned so far. It’s a beautiful day so far. Kind of rest & recharge type of day. I had a rough night Saturday & a good day yesterday, time to refocus on the week ahead.

I have started picking up things for Thanksgiving, kind of a couple of things every time that I go into the store. Instead of trying to do 1 big trip closer to :turkey: turkey day. Samhain is the start of a very busy time of year for me.

Oct 31 - Samhain
Nov 07- My birthday
Nov 16- My passed (2003) mom’s birthday
Nov - Thanksgiving
Dec 07 - My brother’s birthday
Dec 21/22 - Yule
Dec 24/25 Christmas
Dec 31 - New Year’s Eve
Jan 01 - New Year’s Day
Jan 03 - My passed (2021) mother’s birthday

December has a couple of other birthdays, I just can’t remember off the top of my head the exact days. I also have Veteran’s Day in Nov (the 11th) where my daughter will be home with me for the day.

I have 2 appointments tomorrow. 1 with a doctor & then I am getting my hair trimmed/cut…not really sure where I am going with it right now :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: Probably just going to have my long layers trimmed in so they don’t start growing out too much.

I’m done rambling for now. :joy: I hope everyone has a great day! :two_hearts:


Maybe the fairies like them and took them away with them? LOL.

I’ve had most of my stuff for Thanksgiving for a while now. Last year it was difficult for me to find pumpkin pie and I didn’t want that to happen again this year.


Those mischievous fairies strike again! I will find it… I will look at them again today & do a little more identifying than just holding it up to the light. :rofl:

Last year finding disposable pie pans was a nightmare! So this week I am going to buy a few, the reusable ones that we have are downstairs… but we’ve had so much go happen & the basement has taken a beating & is running out of room. So disposable this year… only buy early. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:


Good luck finding them! Both the crystals and the pie pans! LOL!


Thank you @TheTravelWitch for the shout-out! And to everyone else for the Congrats, you all make it easy to stay engaged and like the content :grin:.
Merry Meet Monday! I don’t really have any plans this week, none that are set in stone anyway… lol.

Hope this week treats everyone well.

Blessed Be


Good morning!
Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here! I couldn’t resist and started browsing the Christmas section at Walmart and Lowe’s. I have such a love/hate relationship with Christmas anymore. Some days I think it’s the worst time of the year full of unnecessary anxiety and stress. Other days I think, “Oh! Lights! Snow! :snowflake: Santa! :santa:t3: Candy Canes! Trees!:christmas_tree: Pretty! I want to start decorating!”:laughing:


Congratulations @Rowan :clap: :fireworks:
I’m having a quiet time this week, thinking about things, need to consecrate :crystal_ball:
Have a witchy week everyone :sparkles: :dizzy: :hugs:


Congrats on your new treasure, @Amethyst- enjoy your Bloodstone! :heart:

You are amazing that you’re already getting ready for Thanksgiving, @Siofra- good for you for planning ahead! It does look like a busy time of year for you. Remember to take good care of yourself! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

You’re very welcome, @Rowan, thanks for all that you do! Same to you- hope you have a lovely week :two_hearts:

Hahaha I understand your love/hate for Christmas, @Kasandra! I personally hate all the pressure and expectations this time of year (and there are basically four Christmases in Poland- it’s exhausting to be honest). But the snow and happiness and bright colors have such a strong sense of warm nostalgia from childhood that I can never bring myself to hate it :christmas_tree: :heart:

Enjoy your quiet time this week, @debra2- wishing a witchy week to you too! :woman_mage:

I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! :sparkles::blush:


Where is the zoom link for group ritual? When us the time?


@Princess_Tara there is no Zoom today. MeganB is unable to hold one today, but next week the Zoom should be back on track.


Thanks @Siofra


Good Evening :city_sunset:
I am looking forward to sharing a ritual of mine I’ve been doing to help clear energy, for the challenge.
This morning I lite a :candle: candle for our coven!

I got some new jewelry about 20 pieces I am thinking of doing some jewelry magic 🪄 Megan suggested on Round The Cauldron. :grin:I am so excited to do jewelry :gem: Magic :sparkles:
I have one ring :ring: that looks like a Aquamarine so this is part of the water element. I used and it said “ Are you feeling weighed down by toxic emotions like fear and frustration? Do you feel dull and not as vibrant? If you want to rejuvenate your spirit and reawaken the passion and creativity you have towards all areas of your life, the Aquamarine stone is the crystal you need to work with.
I also got one that is related to “Hecate” it’s a :snake: with an Amethyst in the middle! Pretty neat huh, Not to mention the mood ring :ring: that is so pretty! I got a spiral :cyclone: forward and reverse! One with a black crystal which I’m not sure what it is!

Rowan- Congratulations :fireworks: on making the most hearts :heart:
Your a star :sparkles: and a Goddess!


Welcome @Princess_Tara! The details for the weekly group ritual are always posted in the group ritual post itself. For anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, here is a link to this week’s group ritual: (Group Ritual - Nov 11) 11:11 Manifestation Ritual.

As @Siofra said, the live Zoom meet has been postponed to next week. I hope you will be able to join at that time! In the meantime, feel free to do the current ritual (as it is still Thursday in some parts of the world) or enjoy videos from past group meditations :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

You have such a beautiful collection of blessed jewelry, @Jeannie1! :heart_eyes: One of the silver rings on the top left looks like it’s a piece of silverwear jewelry, which I really love- it’s so creative! And I see a lovely piece of what looks like amber (with the leaves on the sides). So gorgeous- congrats on your new treasures! :ring:

Looking forward to hearing what you will do for the challenge this week :blush:

Blessed be!


WOW! That’s a nice collection! I wouldn’t know what to wear first!


@Jeannie1 that is a very nice collection indeed! Amazing new charms & jewelry for you to enchant with your intentions. I hope they work out for your highest good in the best & easiest ways. :candle: :infinite_roots:
