Just because you’re a witch doesn’t mean your craft has to cost a fortune. In fact, it should never cost a fortune unless you want it to. While witchcraft is different for everyone, practicing as a witch is often about finding magic in simple things around you and creating something beautiful from them. Social media has played a huge part in the expensive expectation for those first coming into witchcraft in this day and age. From large and extravagant altar setups to enormous luxury crystals, many people are under the impression that you have to have dozens of crystals, candles, and tarot decks in order to truly practice, but that’s not true. Don’t get us wrong, while these tools can be fun and inspiring to add to your collection and can help you to enhance the energy in your craft; they do not supply the magic––you do. The magic is within you, dear witch, and you put magic into everything you use, whether it’s cheap or expensive items, and we’re here to show you that.

The moon is one of the most divine and mysterious energy sources available to us. Not only does it provide a truly captivating view in the night sky, but it also has the natural ability of connecting directly with our subconscious and helping us to heal in a number of ways. While the new moon and the full moon are most known for their empowering energies, the other phases of the moon are just as powerful and offer their own healing vibrations in many other ways. And today, we’re going to talk all about them.
In this article, we’re going to cover the meaning behind the eight phases of the moon. We’re going to talk about what each moon phase means, the unique energy they give off, and how you can work more closely with them to perform self-care practices to heal, grow, and align more intentionally in your life than ever before. Let’s get started.

As we move out of the inspiring and energetic energies of April, we move into the month of May with flying colors, welcoming new changes, transformations, and chances for renewal. To start, we will be kicking off the month in the balanced and assured sign of the Taurus. Often considered to be the mother of the Zodiac due to their kind, nurturing, and wise nature, the Taurus craves balance in all that they do. They are hardworking, know the importance of creating a good routine, and always approach their goals with a slow but steady pace. For that reason, the signs may also begin to bring these energies into their life this month. From creating a routine for yourself, focusing on small steps for your goals, or even just picking up the pace towards working towards your dreams, this month is all about gaining stability and finding what new direction you may wish to go with it.
Aside from this, May also marks the official start of the eclipse season, which is sure to bring a plethora of new energies into our lives. With so many energetic shake-ups at this time, the signs could find themselves feeling more drained and disoriented. However, all of the changes are likely to help us align with our destined path later on. Aside from this, the planets will also be quite active this month, with Jupiter, Mars, and Mercury as the biggest influences. Jupiter will be lingering in the sign of the Pisces for the beginning of the month, making this an opportunistic time for the signs to seize new opportunities and take a chance. After this, Jupiter will then make its way through the sign of the Aries, pushing hard work, confidence, and a new dynamic in your life as the signs likely begin to feel a little more open-minded in trying new things. We will then welcome our next Mercury retrograde on May 10 in the sign of the Gemini, which is bound to bring some energetic shake-ups in our social lives as well as our communication skills. Lastly, we will then end the month in the sign of the energetic Gemini, pushing our social interactions, lust for adventure, and need for expansion to the extreme.

Although our moms always make the best times for us, it is still challenging catching up with our busy moms, especially during special occasions. Whether they’re busy from work, doing the chores, laundry, shopping, cooking, etc.. It always seems like they are trying to chase stuff and run to beat some deadlines. Well, it is completely reasonable, otherwise we won’t be having the best lives they are trying to shape for us. Undoubtedly, there are also times it scares us out of our wits seeing our moms with too much on their plates. And it leaves us thinking whether they still have time for themselves and for the things they love to accomplish. Unfortunately, we learned (sometimes the hard way) that there’s nothing much that we can do because our moms love pressure and love to be fulfilled in their own ways. And how unkind of us to stop what makes them happy, anyway?
Anyhow, this article is a helping hand for people like me and you who’d love to catch up with our busy moms this Mother’s day regardless of their tight schedule. And keep in mind that we are focusing on gifts that you can give simply because sometimes it's better to let gift speak for itself! :)
So without further ado, we have collated some relatable items that your mom would surely love that they’d want to go on a fun date with you!

As we move into the warmth of the growing spring, the season is changing, the earth is blooming, and the energy is shifting with a promise of rebirth and new beginnings just beyond the horizon. With opportunity in the air, this is a truly auspicious time for wiping the slate clean and moving forward with a fresh new attitude.
With that said, the sun will soar through the fiery Aries sign at the start of the month, encouraging the signs to start taking more of a head-on approach with their goals. As a result, the signs will likely begin to feel more spontaneous, social, and optimistic this month, especially when it comes to pursuing their dreams. With the abundant and opportunistic energies of the growing light of the sun, intentions set in prior months are now beginning to rise to fruition, allowing us to make bigger moves for the start of the new Zodiac year. To go along with this, we also have many planetary changes occurring this month, mostly following Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, and Venus, welcoming in lust, luck, and action into our space. Mars and Jupiter could bring changes to your attitude and approach towards your goals, while Mercury can add a sharpness to our tongue, allowing us to be bolder with our words and actions. Lastly, Venus could stir changes in love, allowing partners to connect deeper as well as the opportunity to overcome issues of the past. To end the month, we will then enter the sign of the Taurus on April 20th, allowing the signs to regain balance in their lives after a busy last few weeks and focus their attention on nurturing themselves more mentally, physically, and spiritually. And since the Taurus is an earth sign, this is also a time of calmness and slow but steady movement after the raging fire sign’s ruling, allowing the signs to build a more strategic plan for the path ahead and look at their goals with more of a long-term vision.
Overall, April is predicted to be a month of action, optimism, and transformation as all the signs begin to move into the next chapter of their lives swiftly with the season’s change. But, to give you some deeper insight into what you can expect this month, today, we're going to go over what changes each Zodiac sign can expect energetically throughout April and how you align yourself to make the most of them.

As we transition out of the last month of winter, we make our way into inspiring new beginnings in the month of March. With the spring equinox happening on March 20th, this month, we prepare to welcome the energies of change, transformation, and forward movement as we begin to blossom into our most authentic selves like never before. With that said, we will kick off the month in the wise and sensitive Pisces sign, urging the signs to delve deeper into themselves and their connections to the world around them. Since Pisces is directly connected to the water element and the divine world, March is expected to bring some highly intuitive energies into our space, allowing us to be more receptive to the changes happening within and around us. Expressive in nature, Pisces' influence will likely help us to channel a deeper connection with our creative passions to help us develop a strong connection to our most authentic energy and shed away what no longer resonates. Not to mention, since Pisces is the last member of the Zodiac, you can bet that this adaptable energy will guide us to our last stage of development before we start our new Zodiac cycle, working to help us move forward without any lingering emotional or energetic baggage.
Aside from this, there is also a lot of planetary shifts happening this month, with Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn, just to name a few. With so much energetic change happening, this could stir up a lot of new inspiring, ambitious, and loving energies within us. However, it could also bring new expansion, readjustment, and change that could have things feeling a little rocky at times and could require some patience to work through. To top it off, we will then end the month in the ambitious and self-assured Aries sign, helping to boost us ahead once and for all in new directions in our lives, ready to embrace all that life throws at us.
Overall, March 2022 is predicted to be a month where we start picking up the pace to get a move on all the things we’ve been planning out over the last several weeks. But, to give you some deeper insight into what you can expect this month, today, we're going to touch on what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout March and how you can adjust your life to make the most of it.

With that said, the month of February will kick off in the intellectual sign of Aquarius, urging the signs into some deep reflection. Since the Aquarius is a bit of a loner but also highly self-empowered, don’t be surprised if you find yourself pulling away from society to work on your personal endeavors this month as you formulate a new plan for how to move forward along your journey. Aside from this, Mercury will end its retrograde on the 3rd of the month, which can help the chaotic and uncertain energies we’ve all been feeling return to normal. Not only that, but Venus is also moving into our space at this time, which will likely help to level out any intense energies that may have risen over the last few weeks from the retrogrades. This will be happening alongside the planets of Mars and Pluto as well, which could simultaneously stir forward movement and tension, making some of the energy this month feel a bit up and down.
