Happy August & Full Moon Lunar Eclipse!

August is bringing the eclipse season a month early and also a Mercury Retrograde (on 8/12), so you may be experiencing a more intense lunation than normal!The Moon is Full in Aquarius with a partial Lunar Eclipse on Monday, August 7 at 2:10pm, but you may have been feeling the effects for at least a week. If you have Aquarius on or near 15 degrees anywhere in your chart, pay particular attention to those areas of your chart.

Aquarius is the sign of the New Age, transformation, community consciousness, and visions of the future. More than ever, we are being called to release old patterns, tired and repetitive ways of thinking, and anything with a focus on the past. Eclipse cycles are 19 years and you can gain some information by looking back to where you were in August of 1998.

Want to hear more about the eclipse and ways to work with the moon?Here is my Divination for the Full Moon and Astrology Update!

The offerings at Mystery School are offering a sanctuary from cosmic influences! We are delighted to have some of the Autumn classes starting to roll out, like Rhythms of the Goddess – Season of the Witch! Plus, a new series called Medicine Woman with Brandi Auset that is perfect to offset eclipse season and has several offerings with more coming!

We are also thrilled to welcome Katherine Skaggs as a new instructor! She has a free offering for Tarot and the Goddess and new courses coming in September! Katherine is an inspirational Goddess artist and we are lucky to be collaborating with her!

Sending you calm vibes to survive the cosmic chaos! Thank you for being connected with Mystery School of the Goddess – I appreciate you!

And we have a NEW free summit coming in September for Feast of the Sacred Waters – stay tuned for the sign up link within the next week!

Blessings!

HOW TO CAST A MAGICAL CIRCLE IN 6 SIMPLE STEPS

Many spells and rituals start with the instruction: “Cast a circle, and then…”

But what is this magical circle, exactly?

And why do you need to cast it?

And what’s the best way to do it?

First, the what:

A magical circle is an energetic construct that you build or envision around yourself before working magic, doing a ritual, or sometimes even meditating. For a single magic worker or solitary witch, it’s usually around 5 or 6 feet in diameter, but the size expands based on the size of a group.

Sometimes, the circle is defined by something in the physical world, such as a ring of candles or scarves, or perhaps just symbolic items at the four cardinal points. Other times, it’s defined simply on the energetic plane.
