We have a dark moon coming this weekend so let's look at some ways of working with this special energy.

Anyone else feel like they've been trapped in a washing machine these last few weeks? Phew! With a full moon and mercury retrograde at the same time, I know I feel like I have been through it all. I am officially on my knees. I often post about dark moons because I bloody love them! I know that people like to do banishing spells at this time, but I prefer to luxuriate in the quiet introspective energy.
I'm introspective anyway so this helps. More and more I am forced to pause in this ridiculous experience of adulting. Dark moons are our companions for pause. They envelope us in velvety, gentle, truth. They show us the way, hold our hand and rub our backs when it gets rough. At least that's my experience.
If you have been following me, done my online course or read my zine, you will be aware that I put art magick for witchcraft into three broad tenets: exploration, invocation and devotion. These projects are for this time of inner journeying and therefore address the tenet exploration.

Blessed Lammas! I have been spending a lot of time thinking about this sabbat and what it means in so many different ways. Creating an altar triptych has been a rewarding way of exploring so much of what this time means. I hope you enjoy the video I made talking about it.
