“You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.
Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them.”

Celebrate the Blessing Moon . . .

Today is this month's full moon, and it's the one we know as the Blessing Moon. In addition to being the perfect time to take inventory of the good things you have in your life, use this moon phase for magical workings related to dreams and divination. It's also called the Meadow Moon, which would explain why I've felt compelled to go for a four mile walk around a nature conservancy which is a short distance from my house. This afternoon I plan to do just that and enjoy the chance to be outside, breathe the fresh air and perhaps pick a wildflower or two.


• Colors: green, silver, blue-gray
• Gemstones: moonstone, white agate, opals or pearls
• Trees: Ash and Oak
• Gods: Juno, Venus, Cerridwen, Athena, Nephthys, Lugh
• Herbs: mugwort, hyssop, lemon balm
• Element: water

Tonight I'll perform my first rituals by celebrating the 'Blessing Moon'. May your day be a blessed one.

Ah, thank you♥ I was trying to find out which moon this was and couldn't find it anywhere in my books - I should have checked here first. ;D It's great because I chose to make some of my first elixirs with this moon and now I find out it's the Blessing Moon ~ perfect!
I hope your ritual was magickal!
