[ [ Moon Phase: Last Quarter Moon :last_quarter_moon: ] ]


Sunday, March 3

This week we will be blessed by the light of the Last Quarter Moon. The exact time you will see this moon phase depends on your location :telescope:

The Spells8 Moon Magick Guide to Last Quarter Moon Magick lists this moon phase as the ideal time to remove negativity and banish things that are holding you back. It is a good time for spellwork that deals with laying things to rest and banishment.


This moon phase is part of the Waning Cycle :arrow_double_down:. For more information including history, meanings, and a collection of spells and rituals that work in harmony with this moon phase, check out the Waning Moon Spell Page :last_quarter_moon:

Congratulations both of you for the shout-out and thank you for sharing your wisdom and love with the forum!

Not much big planned for this week other than trying to finish taxes. The hard drive went out on our financial computer 2 days ago so we’re getting a new one and I’m trying to rebuild the return on my laptop.

Also need to get some outside chores done, mulching leaves, cleaning and amending my garden, and setting up the memorial marker for Donut.

Spring is on its way!


Congratulations to @Devenne and @crystal59 woohoo :partying_face:. You’re both fabulous :sparkling_heart:


Woohoo! :tada: :partying_face: Congratulations, you two!

@Artemisia – eeeekk! I hate when tech does weird things, but it’s even worse when it breaks!

Nothing too big for me over here. I don’t think so, anyway… :thinking: I’m not holding my breath because things inevitably go weird lol


Congratulations @Devenne and @crystal59!!!

This week I am doing some much needed Spring cleaning and filling out job applications. It’s so convenient applying for a job these days. You don’t have to leave the house. Lol!


Thankyou everyone and congratulations @crystal59


welcome to the witch family all you new members !Have a good trip on the paths of Magic! :two_hearts: :two_hearts: :two_hearts: :two_hearts:

@crystal59heart_decoration - for giving out the most hearts :heart:
congratulations for all that is offered to the family! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!


Congratulations :tada::purple_heart: @Devenne @crystal59

Haven’t been here much the past few days… Been exhausted…still. my hands aren’t working too well so I’m slower to type. Speech to text thing is goofy sometimes then it takes more work to edit.

Good news! They’re coming Friday to put the door in for the ramp!

Other than that I don’t have anything else scheduled. Hoping for a peaceful week!

Hope everyone has a great week! :blush::people_hugging::purple_heart:


That’s amazing news! :clap: Finally!!


Congratulations :partying_face: and thank you :pray: both for all you do! :hugs:

It’s been so cold this winter, I am looking forward to warmer weather. Yesterday was sunny :sun_with_face: and warm, in the upper 60s, so I spent some time outside in my Magical Garden! I have a few Violas in bloom and, Daffodils and Tulips :tulip: are coming up! Woo hoo! :dancer:

I’m still working on taxes :roll_eyes: although I’m procrastinating as much as I can :rofl: But there’s good news… we are getting a refund!

Wishing everyone an amazing week filled with love :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: and magick :dizzy: always!


I can’t wait to see pictures (if you choose to share) in our Magick Gardens post :hibiscus: I’m so ready for warmer weather here, too.


Thankyou @Sivonnah @marsha


Yes, I will post them soon! The yard looks messy now because I like to let everything go to seed and let the leaves help protect the roots from freezing. Anyway, I worked for an hour or so yesterday and started the cleanup, but it’s a work in progress. :green_heart:


I need to spend some time in mine. The weather is nice right now, but it will be 100 plus degrees before I know it.


It’s so nice out here but I’m feeling lazy and just want to relax


Congratulations to @Devenne and @crystal59! Thank you for all you do!

Just a short note this week. Apartment inspection Wednesday. I’m gonna go dust my bedroom, which hasn’t seen a duster since last inspection! LOL! Wish me luck!


@Amethyst thankyou. Good luck to you my friend :four_leaf_clover:


Thank you!


wait… am I just now realizing you can have an emote in your username? :open_mouth: :heart_decoration:
