From July 8th until August 4th we have the Holly Month. This month is the 8th moon of the year and the first moon of the dark half of the year.
The magickal uses for the Holly month are :-
watchfulness, good luck, holiness, death, consecration, rebirth, material gain, physical revenge, beauty and travel, protection magick for animals.
On a personal level I find, again, that there are things I can address within the theme of the month. Life has been so very hard for me these past few months and I am not putting so much time and effort into online pursuits. I have found that a lot of online "friendships" have fallen by the wayside and that left me unnerved, momentarily. I find my priorities have really changed and I no longer give the time to things I did a few months back. I have found that what I thought was important to me then no longer is. At the time I would have felt my life was the poorer for not having such things and such people in it, but I have changed so much since the catalystic chain of events stormed through my life, I don't feel like the same person anymore.
So with rebirth being a theme of the Holly month I am going to do a little cleansing ritual and meditation specifically for rebirth. I feel it is time to re-enter the world.
