The Witches Moon for September 2018, Celestial Wisdom, is quite impressive. This month’s box contains two stunning pieces of art: The Zodiac & Celestial Sky Chart and the Mabon Book of Shadows page. Mabon is by far my favorite time of year so I am quite happy to have this page to add to my grimoire. The zodiac enhancement sigil is a stunning but simplistic black and white print that can be colored or adorned if desired and has a blank space in the center to add your own star sign or other relevant mark. As usual, the personalized oracle reading resonates with me. I truly have a hard time accepting anything from others, be it gifts, compliments, or other acts of kindness.
I was ecstatic to receive the Astrological oracle cards this month because I recently saw a review on YouTube for the Barbieri zodiac oracle and wanted to get an oracle for myself. It is almost as if The Witches Moon knows. These cards have silver gilding on the edges and feature Art Nouveau designs. There are 22 cards in the set and a guide book is included.
Another stellar (pun intended) item in the box is the Shooting Star specimen, which is a Campo del Cielo Iron Meteorite. Per The Witches Moon: “This Shooting Star fell from the sky 4,700 years ago, about 1,000 km northwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina. This meteorite is now a protected specimen and can only be harvested with special permission from the government”. You can read more about the meteorites here. I did not own any meteorite specimens so this is an especially nice inclusion.
The candle, herbs, oil, parchment paper, and sacred salt are all amazing in their own rights. I truly appreciate that these items are included in each monthly box as it helps me build up my witchy stash. The magickal anointing oil is especially delightful – it is reminiscent of a mystical snow globe with crystal, foil, glitter, and herb inclusions.
Finally, I feel I must address two disappointments for me this month – the Seeker of Knowledge incense and the smokey quartz. Being a severe asthmatic I freely admit I am not a fan of stick incense, but this month’s selection has an especially off-putting aroma. The scent is overpoweringly soapy and my husband seems to be allergic to it. Moving on to the smokey quartz, I feel bad saying this, but I do not like my crystal this month. Maybe I am being picky, but it just does not resonate with me. Perhaps the universe is trying to tell me something and I should reflect on my impression.
