Who’s afraid of the big bad super blood wolf moon? Not us! The name might sound menacing, but all it means is that the first full moon of the year is featuring a lunar eclipse! This Sunday, the Leo full moon will appear closer and larger than usual. Eclipses are said to be catalysts for change, and this one will be no exception; astrologers have been warning us about the life changing aspects of this phenomenon for weeks! Read on for more information on how to harness the Big Moon Energy for good.
Do any of you feel affected by the full moon? I catch myself feeling my strangest at times when the moon is nearly or actually full. Sometimes my feelings are so intense I just want to sleep them off. The night of and three days before and after the full moon are energetically powerful times, so much so that I hardly want to do anything at all! So I came up with a gentle full moon ritual that even the most weary witch can muster (also useful up to three days after the full moon).
Spiritual pep talk time! Logging into this blog just now felt like busting open a REALLY creaky door in the middle of the night, probably waking up a roommate. (Am I still welcome here?!?) I’m ashamed to say I nearly abandoned this magical place!
I have a confession to make. I’m not a witch for a living (although I hope someday to cast a spell that pays the bills). I have a full time day job and a dog just like you. For a time I really just let my life get in the way of, uh, well, my life. Has this ever happened to you?
I’ve been a busy witch lately, and like most of us, I have no shortage of responsibilities to keep up with! I’ve noticed that my day-to-day routine keeps me constantly occupied and although I am glad to never feel bored, I have been left with precious little free time for my magical endeavors. I’m sure many can relate — although it would be nice to always be able to set aside a scheduled moment for spiritual reflection, it doesn’t always seem possible. Sometimes we ache to delve into our inner work but can’t set aside more than a moment. So how can we squeeze in a little magic without any wiggle room? You don’t need any extra time or materials — a bit of creativity is all you need to create a magical meditation space anytime, anywhere!
It’s the last day of March, but what else makes this time special? It’s the night of the second blue moon this year! I keep blurting this out excitedly, and the reaction I get is mostly, “Cool… so what does it mean?”
Welcome back, witches! I hope everyone had a wonderful new moon / St. Patrick’s / weekend. I just wrapped up my birthday celebrations (it was the 16th, but I made it my birthday WEEK) and I’m here to share some of my favorite elements of classic witchy style. We’re all familiar with the stereotypical “witch” caricature and while not all of the associations that may come to mind are pretty (I’ll pass on the warts), there are several essential witchy style details that are enduringly timeless and can add a touch of magic to any ensemble.
