Welcome one, welcome all- it is Merry Meet Monday !
There are many different calendars within pagan practices. The Celtic Tree Calendar follows one pagan calendar based on the pagan traditions of the Celtic peoples. There 13 months on the calendar, each based around a full moon named after a tree
In two days we will leave the Oak Month behind and enter the month of the Holly Moon .
Holly Moon: July 8th - August 4th
Holly reminds us of the everlasting cycle and strength of nature. Holly is particularly useful in protective magic- hang a sprig of holy in your home to protect yourself and your loved ones. You can read more about holly, the Holly Moon, and it’s magickal properties in the 13 Months of the Celtic Tree Calendar.
