Very warm greetings to all!
Thank you again to everyone who participated in last week’s challenge: Trying Something New! It is time for round two, and the theme for this challenge will be…
In order to successfully complete this challenge, there are two easy parts:
STEP 1: Exploring the Celestial Heavens
For those who are more advanced in their studies of the stars and heavens: Consider trying a new spell, ritual, or craft related to your favorite aspect of the celestial heavens!
For those currently unfamiliar with cosmic magick or astrology: now is a great time to learn a bit about this fascinating aspect of magickal practice! Learning about Moon Magic and looking into Moon Meditations may be a good place to get started.
If astrology (the study of the celestial bodies and their movements) is calling to you, perhaps you can get started by finding your Sun/Moon/Rising Zodiac Sign , connect with your Chinese Zodiac Animal , or learn about your Primal Zodiac (a combination of both!) . Those interested can learn more about different zodiacs and astrology in the post Astrology: East and West.
For celestial worshippers both new and experienced, the Full Moon is almost upon us!
The Full Buck/Thunder Moon will be visible in the skies on the night of Saturday, July 4th to Sunday, July 5th
The full moon is a time when the moon is at its most powerful- this is a great time to conduct rituals, do spellwork, charge your magickal tools, and more!
There are many possible ways to honor, celebrate, and/or worship a full moon. Here are few possibilities for you to look into:
Consider trying a Full Buck Moon ritual! The ritual page includes a lot of helpful information about the full moon, the complete details of the ritual and what you will need, printable journal pages, and even a wonderful coloring page
Considering using the power of the full moon to charge your crystals and magickal tools
Or perhaps consider having a Full Moon Ritual Bath
The full moon this weekend is extra special, as (for those in the US and some parts of Canada) it will be proceeded by a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse .
There is a lot of excitement in the cosmos this week- now is a great time to channel the celestial powers into your practice!
STEP 2: Post about your experience!
If you learned about your zodiac, learned about the history of the full moon, or found an interesting fact- feel free to share your newfound knowledge! If you tried a ritual, spell, or project- how did it go, and would you recommend it?
Whether you attempted something big or small, any experience is wonderful- so please share your findings in the comments!
This challenge will conclude in 7 days- on Wednesday, July 8th.
When the challenge closes, all participants will receive a special shout-out and will be granted a small prize to reflect their efforts
A warm reminder that the challenge is very open- you are encouraged to participate in a way that reflects your unique practice . There are no right or wrong answers so long as you practice respectfully, and there is no way to ‘lose’ the challenge if you participate!
The goal is to provide encouragement, the sharing of new ideas, and to help you to strengthen your practice . I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone chooses to pursue this week!
May the stars illuminate your path forward, and may the celestial heavens shine brightly upon you!
