Wishing everyone a very Merry Meet Monday !
Here’s a peek at exciting happenings in both the forum and the witchy world at large this week:
Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on these events!
[ [ Moon Phase: Full Moon ] ]
A beautiful full moon will bless the skies above on Wednesday, October 20th . The exact time of peak illumination will depend on your location.
The full moon of September is called the Full Hunter’s Moon and celebrates the energy of this time of year. This moon is ideal for collection, preparation, and release of negative energy .
Explore a special moon ritual and learn more about this moon on the Spells8 Full Hunter’s Moon Ritual Page .
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
You can find the current moon phase for your location as well as a daily lunar spell on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page
[ [ Group Ritual- Together with Your Coven ] ]
Join in for a shared group ritual meditation and coven chat on Thursday, October 21st - this activity is open to all members of the forum
