Greetings, witches and pals! It’s been a minute. I’ve been knocked down with a bug (which was not the Covid-19, thanks for asking).
Anyway, today, Monday 9th March, brings us both a full moon AND a Supermoon, in Virgo, AND we’re still in MRx, AND Friday is the 13th. Let’s talk about all this f*ckery.
What exactly is a ‘Supermoon’? Well, it basically means that the moon is essentially closer to Earth, which means it looks bigger and brighter than your average full moon (although, in our line of thinking, is any moon really average?). And why is it called the ‘Worm Moon’? Because Spring is sprung, witches and friends – the little wormies and grubs are coming out of their deep Wintry hidey-holes to start getting the soil ready for planting of Springtime crops. CUTE.
The Moon is in Virgo
If you are a regular reader of OBW, you’ll know that I am a Virgo. Not the type of Virgo who has a clean house (I do, but that’s because my Sagi partner is wonderful and does it). I’m actually rubbish at tidying and cleaning, as said partner and my parents can definitely attest. It does not come naturally to me.
What does, however, come naturally to me, is that Virgoan need to keeps things mentally and emotionally tidy. I hate conflict, but I would prefer to address something and get it sorted out than leaving things to fester. If I’m feeling a twinge of jealousy, I tend to catch myself, analyse the feelings and then do something to get rid of that green-eyed monster. This month’s saying is one of my old faves (which is notoriously hard to attribute properly): a variation of, “You can’t drink the poison and expect your enemy to die”. Because holding onto sh*t feelings only makes you feel sh*t – it’s not going to punish anyone else.
So the point is, it’s Virgo moon time, which means it’s time to get your sh*t together, de-clutter physically, mentally and emotionally, organise your life and stop procrastinating. Basically (says the witch who just called her parents midway through marking an essay because her attention was wandering).
Mercury Retrof*ckery is nearly over
Everyone, we made it through ANOTHER Mercury Retrograde. Whether your ex resurfaced with a “how are you” text (WTF to those people), or your phone died, or your holiday got cancelled because of the Covid-19, Mercury had a field day with us this time round. As of March 10th, we’re out of Retrograde, but as always, please remember the Retroshade period of pain which is going to last for another few weeks. So I know you’re hovering your pen over that contract, but sign NOTHING for a couple more weeks, okay? Unless you really have to. I understand that life happens. I’m not a monster and I may be One Boss Witch but I am not the boss of you. But do take it easy – be kind to yourself.
Friday the 13th
I actually love Friday the 13th. Not the film, I haven’t seen that, much to Jessie’s dismay. Anyway, I love the number 13 and Friday the 13th is always a fun one to watch everyone around you lose their sh*t. According to this article, Friday 13th is supposed to have got its weird ‘bad luck’ reputation from something to. do with Judas Iscariot and the Last Supper. Whatever, everyone. Here are some great things about Friday the 13th:
- Friday’s corresponding planet is Venus, which makes Fridays great for (ethical) love spells.
- Essential oils corresponding with Friday according to Allure are some of my personal faves: Rose, Yarrow, Cardamom, Sandalwood, Saffron, Vanilla.
- Fridays are great for casting spells around love, friendship, healing relationships, creativity, music, pleasure, and beauty (although I personally think you are very beautiful already, please don’t change).
- In numerology, 13 (1+3) gives us 4, which relates again to creativity, emotion and compassion, and corresponds with the heart chakra which just marries so beautifully with the Friday Venus love vibes.
So fear not, witches! Friday 13th is a great day. Get your magic on.
Anyway, in summary, this week might be tough, but it’s going to end with a beautiful Friday 13th so I strongly suggest that if you have a sweetie, you plan something romantic for Friday eve, and if you do not and would like one, that would be a great day to cast your love-drawing spell. If you don’t want a significant other, more power to you! Maybe take a luxurious self-love bath, because you deserve it.
What are you planning for this week?
