This is the last episode of September! Can you believe it? October is here, witches, I hope you’re ready to fly. We are also in the Mercury retrograde homestretch, thank the gods for that. I’m ready to go direct. We still have like seven other planets in retrograde right now, we don’t need Mercury in there too, just raising hell for no good reason.
Hello everyone, and happy solstice to you. I have been loving all the pictures and the beautiful rituals and I keep going back to some of them to have another look and I get all emotional again. This is such a magical time of year, and I do mean that in the most literal sense. There is powerful solstice magick all around us at this time, and a lot of it has to do with that little balancing act that we do right on the edge of midsummer or midwinter. When we get right to the cusp of the longest day of the year or the shortest day, depending on your hemisphere, before tipping over into the downswing again.
Hello my friends, and welcome to February 2022. We just had the New Moon on Tuesday, along with the lunar new year, so it’s already been a very energetic week, but it’s not over yet. Today, Mercury stations direct, thank the gods. He’s still in his shadow for another little while, but we are through the worst of it. We have a bit of a reprieve from planetary bullshit for a couple months now, nobody is going to be in retrograde again until the very end of April when Pluto stations retrograde, followed on May 10th by Mercury again. But let’s not worry about that just yet. Let’s just enjoy this breather.
Well we’ve made it to December, haven’t we. Thank the gods for that. The weather continues to cool down, it’s dark like, all the time now. And in fact, speaking of darkness, the New Moon is this Saturday, December 4 and then we have a solar eclipse the same day! What a wonderful time to release things that no longer serve us, and to also find new solutions for problems that have maybe been troubling us for a while. This marks a great time to start fresh and make some amazing progress. Don’t be afraid of this eclipse energy. Don’t ever be afraid of any eclipse, actually. Lean into it and let its energy take you where you want to go. Ok that’s all I’m going to say about that.
Today is Thursday, September 2. The moon is waning crescent in Cancer. Monday, the 6th will be the New Moon, so it’s time to maybe start thinking about the intentions we want to set at this time. I know that a lot of witches like to use the New Moon to set intentions for things they want to release, or things they want to banish, and I do that myself from time to time.
