Hello and how are you? How was your full moon in Gemini? I always feel like Gemini has such a playfulness, it’s very roguish, it’s light, it’s flirty. And I appreciate it, I welcome it; that’s the vibe I need right now. There’s always a lot of heaviness around the full moon, energetically it can be really overwhelming, very somber, but Gemini provides a really good balance to all that seriousness.
Hello, witches! Thank you to everyone who sent congratulations on the anniversary of our podcast last week. I can’t say how much it means to me. I really can’t. I’m really excited that I’m getting to connect with so many people on the forums on the website, middleagedwitch.com. There are some really cool witches hanging out there, so I hope you’ll join the discussion. And I’m looking forward to this next year, beginning of course with Virgo season coming next Tuesday, the 23rd. We are already on the backside of Leo season, if you can believe it. And I hope everyone’s full moon intentions went well. All I really tried to pour out into the universe was gratitude. And of course I made some moon water. But back to business!
We are well into November now, and the weather here is gorgeous. We have been taking advantage of these cooler temps to do a lot of baking, taking a little more time to make meals, especially on the weekends when we have extra time to get fancy. The days of BBQs and summer salads are behind us, and we are officially deep into stew season. I’m not an especially gifted cook, but I am a hell of a breadmaker, if I do say so myself, and I am always anxious to fire up the oven once the weather permits.
Today is Thursday, September 23. The moon is waning gibbous, and I hope everyone’s full moon intentions are coming along nicely. It is also the first day of Libra season, which will end on October 22. Libra is ruled by air, so it’s always a good time for partnerships, communication, and justice. Libra is an initiator; so in general, this is a great time for starting something new, like a new creative project, or a new job opportunity, or a new relationship. EXCEPT that Mercury goes retrograde on Monday the 27th.
Today is Thursday, August 12. The moon is waxing gibbous in Sagittarius, the weather is warm, the sky is clear, Summer is slowing down but there’s still plenty of warm weather left. Depending on where you live, school has started or is just about to start. I have three kids, two girls, aged 19 and 17, and a boy, aged 15. My oldest starts her sophomore year of college, my younger daughter starts her senior year, and my son starts his sophomore year of high school. My husband and I also have full time jobs and a very energetic bastard of a yellow lab, so yeah. It’s a busy time in the Middle-aged witch household. But let’s get on with it.
