August 27th N. H. Current Moon Phase and Planetary Positions

Current Moon Phase

TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2019

The Moon today is in a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this phase the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Celtic Symbols to Use on Candles, Yourself, or Wherever You Want

Coven Life®

One very important thing to remember when using any type of Cleric symbols is to draw them exactly how you see them this goes especially the Celtic/Druid Ogham alphabet. The reason for this is the Celtics and Druids used more the alphabet than symbols either vertically or horizontally but never mixed the two directions in the same “sentence or page” or scroll or stone cravings or anywhere else as the drawing of the “letter” can mean one “letter” vertically but a totally different one horizontally. The same for the symbols if you draw one say upside down it will have the exact opposite meaning than drawn the correct way. For examples let us look at the symbols for the Elements used in working spells, rituals, etc.
