Emporiblog - November Full Moon + Total Lunar Eclipse 2022

Image
Hello all!! Don't be confused by the picture, all will be revealed!! This month's Full Moon in Taurus ♉ will be accompanied by a total Lunar Eclipse!! So, with the total lunar eclipse, and a meteor shower to boot, energies are quite fraught this month, and that counts as the energies within you too. This turbulent time is said to activate your inner rebel, that little voice within you that says 'what if we just...' Authority will grate on you, especially if it is misused and power is being abused, and this will prompt you to start flouting the rules.

 Hello all!! Just a quick announcement to clarify some things. A bout of influenza and seasonal bugs has struck Kerenza's household and knocked her for six, I also have some stuff going on and the sudden freezing temperatures aren't helping my hands! Posts will be intermittent if at all so please bare with us until normal service can be resumed! Today is also bonfire night so this is a very brief Pet Safety announcement: KEEP YOUR PETS INDOORS TONIGHT!   I know it's raining but that won't stop people letting fireworks off. For those of you with pets who do not cope well with fireworks, there are a few radio and TV stations that provide calming music and there are playlists available on Spotify and YouTube. Close all windows and avoid letting dogs outside unless they need the bathroom. Thank you for reading this announcement! Shop Blessings, C )0(
