Flower/Big Leaf Moon In Sagittarius
Gotta find your mission to pursue
You know you’ve got a talent whatever it may be, so work your magic
— Alexander Rybak - That’s How You Write A Song
Hey Witchy babes! We've got a full moon upon us that hit its peak at 10:20 am!
This full moon is excellent for spells and divination regarding growth and improving communication, as well as spellwork regarding completions, healing, and empowerment.
For green or hedge witches who will be gardening during this time, a moon in Sagittarius is an excellent time to prune to stop growth (particularly useful if you have a beautiful but pesky plant that has its eyes on taking over the garden – I’m looking at YOU, MINT.) The waxing-to-full cycle (so days leading up to Monday) are a time for planting crops with seeds inside (berries, drupes, legumes, pomes). The following cycle, full-to-waning, is a time to plant root crops, bulbs, and perennials.
Here are the celestial and spellwork details to help you plan your night(s):

🔮Witchy Ways To Celebrate June🔮
Decorate your home or altar with fragrant blossoms, light candles to represent the sun, and let your crystals bathe in the sun. Be careful some crystals will fade in the sun; i.e. flourite, rose quartz, citrine, aventurine, amethyst, aquamarine, and smokey quartz are the main one’s I know of. Opal won’t fade but it can become brittle!
Connect with the fae by leaving offerings of milk, honey, or sweet bread. You can also spend this time with nature, fire, or sun gods!
Do a purification spell by creating a midsummer fire on Letha(Summer Solstice, June 21st) in a small cauldron or a campfire! Whatever floats your boat. Cast negative feelings and illness aside by throwing a pouch(or just some) herbs in the flames. Make a protective talisman of summer herbs and flowers! Oak leaves are great for protection.
Come together with others, either in person or online, to celebrate the longest day of the year. Try to make a connection with a friend.
Get out and about, find an oak or holly tree and bow in respect and thanks for all they have to offer our world and to honor them at this time of their yearly battle.
Here are some more very EASY ways to celebrate midsummer!
Open up the curtains and let some good sunlight cleanse your room.
Open up the window.
Clean cobwebs from the ceiling and other places.
Go on a picnic!
Eat some berries.
Light a candle that reminds you of summer or of the sun.
Wear a floral print.
Make a honey and sugar face scrub.
Make a flower crown.
Garden, or water your plants.
Just sit in the sun, relax for once and soak in new beginnings :)
