Happy October and a very Merry Meet Monday to all!
~Moon Phase: Last Quarter Moon~
With the passing of last week’s Full Harvest Moon, we move into the next moon phase. This Friday, October 9th we will be blessed with the light of the Last Quarter 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 last quarter moon is a time of rest and the banishment of negative energies or forces in your life.
For more information about Moon Magick and specific spells recommended for the last quarter moon, visit the guide Moon Magic: Spells for Every Lunar Phase: Last Quarter
~Birthday of Alesiter Crowley~
Called the Wickest Man in the World, Aleister Crowley was an occultist who wrote several influential works for pagan and witch practitioners. His birthday will be celebrated next Monday, October 12th
More can read about this interesting and sometimes controversial historical figure on Learn Religions: Alesiter Crowley.
~Other Events of Interest~
Some other non-witchy but interesting (and perhaps conversation-starting!) events coming up this week include:
- October 7th- National Kale Day and Frappe Day (I already celebrated with this Freak Shake here!)
- October 9th- Moldy Cheese Day
- October 11th- It’s My Party Day
Double, double, toil and trouble bring out your cauldron, mortar, and pestle (and perhaps wine glass too!) and whip up a potion for this week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge- Potion Making!
Like witches, positions come in every shape, style, and purpose you can imagine- put your creativity to the test and try your hand at potion-making! There are guides and suggested recipes to help you get started
The challenge will remain open until tomorrow, Tuesday, October 6th at 7:00AM CET . After this time a Props and Presents Post will appear with recognition and gifts for all entries!
For challenge enthusiasts, a new challenge is announced every Wednesday
A very warm welcome and merry meet to all of the new users who have joined the forums over the past seven days!
