Upcoming Events :spiral_calendar:

~Group Ritual: Tea Meditation with the Coven~

Join in for a shared group ritual and tea meditation on Thursday, November 12th.

Group meditation rituals and conversations are held every Thursday. Feel free to visit last week’s ritual post to get an idea about what to expect, and look for an announcement on the main page of the forum for details about this week’s group ritual :woman_in_lotus_position:

~Moon Phase: New Moon~

On Sunday, November 15th we will be blessed with a New Moon :new_moon:

To find the exact time of moon phases for your location, I recommend the Moon Phase Calendar from the Old Farmer’s Almanac.


The time of the new moon is a great time to either take a break from magick, or partake in various New Moon Rituals . You can find a list of rituals and spells specifically for drawing on energy from the new moon on Spells8 :sparkles:

Congratulations @Rowan! That’s great! You too @berta! Congrats!

As for me this week, I’m nervous. I have a phone appointment for my SNAP benefits on Thursday and a phone appointment for my Medicaid Waiver Helper on Friday. Friday the 13th. I’m trying not to let conventional beliefs get to me but I worry about that Friday one. I really need the help. I need the food stamps too but I really need the home help one.

So wish me luck guys! Hopefully, everything will go well with both calls!


Good luck, @Amethyst. Our family knows how hard it can be to get benefits when you need them. Sending you lots of light and hoping for the best.

Congrats @Rowan and @berta!

Friday the 13th? Even if it is a little late, more horror movies sound order.

I have one of the most important phone calls of my life this week. :open_mouth: It is supposed to be today. We’ll see. I am also waiting to hear back on 3 different positions I applied for. My FMLA ends soon and I get to go back to work but I would love to start a new and better job soon afterwards. :joy: Seems like the perfect time for New Moon magic.


Thanks, hon! I can use all the help I can get! :hugs:

Sounds like you can use some good vibes yourself! I’ll send you good vibes and you can send me and hopefully, we’ll both have good luck this week!


Thank you Everyone! Merry Meet Monday, this week is definitely going to be better than last.
I’m going to clean my alter today, work on my BOS, and continue my Witches ladder.
My Franklin had an allergic reaction this weekend, we can’t figure out from what. Benadryl gives him the munchies so he’s been eating good, just had hives popping up. He slept with me last night, he loved it. :heart_eyes:
My son had to go into the ER yesterday, I’ve believed him to have Aspartame poisoning for the last 4 days…when the chest pain, dizziness, unable to eat or drink anything hot or too cold; were consistent each day new symptoms of sleeping all day for the last two days and confusion set in. That’s when I had to make him go in.
They say he has a stomach infection and gastric ulcers(which aspartame poisoning can cause ulcers). And that it doesn’t help that he is overweight. So obviously, being 10 hours away from him, my mama bear mode is in overdrive but to hear what they said just pissed me off! My son has been down for 7 months with his back due to bone spurs and a herniated disk. He’s been off work this whole time, living on workman’s comp and now unemployment because his POE terminated him. He cannot climb stairs, walking is even a challenge. He’s been unable to get to his bed or shower regularly because of this. He’s always been a bigger guy since he was 6 years old. Obviously he knows he’s got weight to lose but why kick him when he’s down.
Plus in the beginning of this he got Covid.
To hear him last night talk about just giving up and being hurt by words of ignorant people, broke my heart. I think now he’s dealing with a bit of depression. It’s one thing after another for him.
Ugh, I wish I could fly.
Blessed Be Everyone


I feel so called out right now :joy:

Congrats to @Berta and @Rowan! Love you both for your gorgeous presence around the forum :heart:


Congrats to @berta & @Rowan! Great job!

I dont have much going this week. My daughter will have Wednesday off for Veterans Day, so we may do something together depending on the weather. My nephew is still recovering from Covid and he’s been having a lot of pain in his chest from it. My nephew has severe asthma and allergies, so they are monitoring his lung functions each day.

I did the Candle Challenge with a twist on the Legal Blessings Spell for my Social Security hearing. So I’m hoping it will be good news, but also that it comes sooner than later.


@TheTravelWitch @Limeberry Funny, I just shoveled out the fridge last night.


Thank you, you’re so sweet.


Congrats :clap::confetti_ball::tada: @Berta!


@Rowan, I’ll be keeping your son in my prayers. :pray:


Wishing you all the best of luck, @Amethyst!!! :pray: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: You’ve done everything you can to prepare and it sounds like you are a good position to get the benefits you deserve. Sending lots of good thoughts- may the phone appointments both be a piece of cake (or perhaps pumpking pie cupcakes?) for you :raised_hands::joy:

As for Friday the 13th- I’ve made this my lucky day! My old soccer jersey number was 13 and I passed my road test and got my drivers’ license on Friday the 13th. Like many superstitions- they can be beaten by the power of your own mind :brain: Some even say that Friday the 13th is tied to witches- it can easily become your lucky day too, Kasie :grin:

Oh goodness- seems like many people are expecting big news this week! I hope the phone call brings joy and celebration for you, @praecog29 :pray: Wishing you all the best!

And yes- time to work some lovely new moon magick :new_moon_with_face::sparkles:

My heart goes out to your and your son- @Rowan :pray: . He has so much going on right now, the last thing he needs is more worries!

Sending lots of good thoughts and prayers your way- and for anyone else who has energy to spare, @Siofra has created an Energy Exchange for Tamera and her son!

When I saw this I felt the same- my fridge is the nightmare zone :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

I hope you have a wonderful day off with your daughter, and that your nephew recovers quickly, @Siofra! :pray: And of course that the legal blessings spells brings success to you very soon- any idea when you will get the news?

What a coincidence! Or it is :thinking::joy: You are so in tune with the eccentric holidays, @Berta! I bet it’s nice to have a fresh and clean fridge. Really gotts do mine as well… I’m dreading it :sweat_smile:


WOW several of you are having a busy week with important issues… prayers for all of you especially
@Siofra @Rowan @praecog29
Extra helpings of love and support.


I’m sending healing energy & good energy to those who need it this week. I pray everyone has the best outcomes for their highest good.


Thanks sweetie! I appreciate it!
