Tonight is the full moon of March ..this year called the Storm Moon. I unfortunately can’t see the moon as we are under a very cloudy, dark, dismal sky all day today and continuing into the night. Tomorrow its supposed to clear up and the sun is coming out and its warming up..so I’ll be doing my full moon spellwork tomorrow night, out on my porch.
I like to recharge my crystals and silver jewelry in the light of the full moon. I also will be making up some Blessed Water. I bought a beautiful bottle to put it in and can’t wait to use it. The Storm Moon is perfect for performing cleansing, purification and healing spells too. So putting your altar ritual tools out in the moonlight will cleanse and purify them until the next full moon.
The best news I have to tell you is that I finally received my beautiful Book of Shadows from Witches Moon. It took 7 months which seemed like forever but it was well worth the wait! My book is everything I dreamed it would be and more. It looks aged, it smells great, the paper and leather are awesome and my triquetra on the binding looks amazing. I have started working on getting my pages I’ve worked on for months in the book, deciding what goes where etc. It’s going to take a while but I believe my Book will be a a real heirloom to pass down to my grandchildren in time and something I’ll be proud of and cherish. I’ve also now ordered a smaller version of it for a herb book..hope it doesn’t take 7 months for it to get here! I ordered one for my daughter Willow also. She is still waiting for her book of shadows to come..my other daughter Luna, sister Teagan have received their books now too. Poor Willow, she ordered hers first and its still not here!
Today I got my herbs planted in the little paper pots, made up cute little herb markers and got them in the window where the Sun comes shining in the mornings. Can’t wait to see how they start sprouting. I’ll plant them in large patio pots probably around Beltane (May 1). I planted a few veggies too but mostly herbs. How wonderful it’ll be to go out and pick my own fresh herbs for cooking and for spellwork.
Well, thats it for now..Have a blessed Full Moon..Autumn
