I’m taking a break this week from my Monday Morning Pages because I have something important I want to share with you. We’ll return to our regularly scheduled programming next week.
This Saturday is a new moon. For me that means sowing seeds (prayers, spells, whatever you want to call them) that I’d like to grow as the full moon approaches. Different witches have different ideas for when the best time to cast a spell is; for me, it’s the new moon.
Those who’ve read my blog for awhile know I’m not into advertising or asking for much. I don’t use affiliate links and only share things I would use/do/read myself. I also don’t use my spells to garner support. My witchcraft is generally very personal — I cast the odd spell for all of humanity, but most often they’re used for me or people I know well.
I am making an exception this week. A dear friend of mine Mirjam lost her fiancé recently. He died unexpectedly after exercising one night. These two had the kind of love you could feel radiating off them. Big Love. The whole ordeal is heartbreaking.
Not only did she lose her lover and best friend, she lost part of her financial support. Her teacher training salary will not allow her to stay in her home. After this final year of teacher training, she will be eligible for a job with higher pay, and she’ll be able to afford the rent.
To help her out, we’ve created a GoFundMe page to raise the money she needs. None of us want to see her have to move during such a stressful time. Plus moving can be so expensive, it never seems to save much money, does it?
I will be casting the money spell on Saturday afternoon, and anyone who donates to Miri’s cause will be included in the spell. No donation is too small. Even if we don’t reach our goal, she will keep all money raised.
I generally get 600 or so visitors on my Monday Morning Pages each day, so if we could each donate 5 bucks, the campaign would be done today.
For those of you who can’t spare the cash right now — I’ve been there. I know how hard it can be to stretch a budget — I’m also casting a luck spell for anyone who shares the link. It’s super easy.
For those of you who are skeptical of spells, I say donate and share anyway. I could try to convince you by telling you that I’ve paid for emergency room bills, come up with cash for rent deposits when I was broke or received checks at the most opportune moments because of my rituals, but I don’t think that’s necessary.
There are plenty of other reasons to donate: Helping your fellow (wo)man, good karma, being a philanthropist, you have a little cash burning a hole in your pocket. BUT know that I’ve donated, so this spell isn’t purely selfless.
There are some seriously cute brown boots I’ve been eyeing at the store, so a few extra bucks in my bank account would do me some good too. I could use a good money spell. I’m sure you could too. So skip the fancy latte today and donate now. I guarantee you’ll see a return later
