April’s Witches Moon, Spirit Wisdom, contains a fresh mix of witchy goodness. The past few boxes have contained two Book of Shadows pages and this month is no exception with the Lovers Moon – May Esbat & Full Moon Correspondences and Fluorite artwork. Each piece is detailed with metaphysical information in addition to the lovely imagery.
My personalized oracle reading for April is the Prosperity card. It is interesting that I have received multiple readings centered around this theme.
Included in the Spirit Wisdom box are four items I simply adore: the Mystical Wisdom oracle deck, Pythia ritual jasmine tea, a double terminated rainbow fluorite and a selenite desert rose. The Witches Moon really hit the mark this month!
The Mystical Wisdom oracle deck contains 46 cards and is illustrated by Josephine Wall. I must confess I was nervous we would receive a deck I already owned, so hwrê for this inclusion! Double hwrê because Josephine Wall is one of my favorite artists.
Tea is my blood type. Mostly. Ok, my blood type is A negative, but I do consume an epic amount of loose leaf. Tea in The Witches Moon? Yes, please! The Pythia ritual blend contains a green tea base with jasmine petals. This union is the essence of spring and has an intoxicating aroma of jasmine with a faint hint of anise. Side notes: I recommend brewing with water heated to 165 degrees Fahrenheit. You can steep this tea more than once per serving so save the leaves and enjoy a second infusion.
Fluorite is almost always present on my altar. I love it. Love it. The double terminated rainbow fluorite I received this month is stunning, and yes, I love it. The gradation of colors from emerald green, teal, and muddy purple to lavender, brown, and crystal clear is mesmerizing.
While I am not typically a fan of desert rose, the specimen in my box really resonates with me. I see the shape of a bird’s head in the crystal and it just feels right.
Rounding out the Spirit Wisdom box, and wonderful in their own rights, are the candles, herbs, oil, salt, and incense.
The Wise Guidance spell candles are a bit different this month which is a pleasant change. Instead of a single beeswax candle we received two rolled tapers, with the monthly spell placed in the box on top of the artwork. I’d like to see more of these dual candles in the coming months or perhaps a cluster of tealights.
7 Barks, also known as hydrangea, and ginger are the featured herbs. While 7 barks is new to me, I have received quite a bit of ginger lately. Thankfully it is a good herb to stock due to its medicinal and spiritual properties.
Bliss is an apt name for April’s magickal anointing oil. Containing cedarwood, bergamot, ylang ylang, and lavender oils with St. John’s wort, passion flower, ginger, and echinacea inclusions, this oil is calming and inspiring. Fittingly, this oil is also infused with Comfort magickal oil from The Witches Moon’s personal cabinet of witchery. Blissful indeed!
Earthy and floral, Beltane Celebration sacred salt contains jasmine and rose oils, as well as hawthorn, marigold and rosemary fragments. I feel inclined to use this salt as an offering, along with the bits of twine I have been collecting from the Moon boxes.
I am not a fan of incense but I am intrigued by the ritual rose rope incense. The twisted fibers are tipped with a vibrant rose red color and have a heady floral scent.
Spring is a season of renewal and I certainly feel a renewing energy within the items created for the April box. Change can be good and it is most welcomed with the deviation in the standard elements for the Spirit Wisdom box.
The Witches Moon is a monthly subscription containing high-quality spiritual items crafted around the seasons. The current US price is $54 a month, including shipping.
