Even Nature Takes Some R & R!

As the winter solstice approaches, nature reminds us it is important to take time to rest and restore. I invite you to do the same as 2018 comes to an end. Nourish your body, allow your mind to daydream, and revitalize the spirit with family, friends, and loads of natural beauty! I'll be doing the same for the remainder of the year, so comment approval and email replies will be delayed. I appreciate your patience as I take time to replenish the 'ol creative wells (because I've been busy working on MANY new and exciting things coming your way in 2019, so get ready!).

Wishing you all a comfy and cozy, fuzzy-sock-wearing, soul-healing, snowman-building, chocolate-covered kind of Yuletide season! Love and blessings to each and every one of you! 🎄

By the Light of the Moon: 13 Simple & Affordable Spells & Rituals for a Year of Full Moon Celebrations

It's heeeeerrrreee!

I'm so excited, I can't even think straight. Let's see if I can organize my thoughts, or if I should just throw confetti at the screen and leave it at that.

So, what's with all the enthusiasm? Well, my dear friends, I wrote a book that will help you celebrate the full moon for an entire year, and I'm so excited to share it with you!

My first Penniless Pagan book, By the Light of the Moon: 13 Simple & Affordable Spells & Rituals for a Year of Full Moon Celebrations is, well, everything the title implies. It's what you've come to expect from Penniless Pagan — cost-free or nearly cost-free spells that are simple, easy to follow, and effective— all squished into one easy-to-download e-book! And the best part? There's thirteen BRAND NEW previously unpublished spells just waiting to be unleashed! Thirteen, you say? Oh yeah, I have you covered even on a blue moon year! ;) And at $7.99, that's just .61¢ a spell!

Full Moon Energy-Cleansing Carpet Powder

But Michaela, what if I'm too busy to read through a spell and then cast it? I've got that covered too! With a super simple BONUS ritual (bringing the spell/ritual count up to 14!), I'll have you honoring the full moon before your microwave burrito is fully nuked. And since many spells offer several variations, you can even reuse the same spell for a different outcome! For example, if you're feeling spunky one month, you can use the Moon Dust Fire Spell Pouches to increase your intuition, and then use the SAME spell the next month for wealth and abundance. Pretty swanky, hm?

Moonlight Herbal Sacrifice

Most spells can be completed in under 15 minutes, but none take more than 45 minutes. And because this is the Penniless Pagan and not Moneybags Pagan, most spells can be cast with materials found in your own backyard! Annnnd because I want to make your conjuring experience go as smoothly as possible, I've included tips and tricks for your casting pleasure, including an herbal substitution guide. This guide details common household herbs and their magickal intentions so you never have to worry about having the right herbs on hand!

Okay, Michaela. You need to slow down, take a deep breath, maybe have a sip of water.

*clears throat. Smooths skirt* 

You know what? Rather than getting myself all worked up, why not let you have a sneak peak of the details so you can get on your way to a year of full moon spells!

  1. Look at your writing books! Why aren't the pictures featured in the book as well? They are beautiful!

    1. Why thank you! The photos ARE in the book! It's the photo tags that aren't (the little hippie sitting beside the site title). But now I see that may be confusing, so I just may remove that disclaimer. =S

    2. That makes much more sense. I was like why in the world would she take these lovely pictures for them NOT to end up in the book. I understand now. Your watermark is not on the pictures in the book.

  2. These are in a hard copy form at barnes and noble you say. :-)

    1. Right now, the book is only available in e-book format. I'm trying to find a cost-effective way to offer it in paperback, but the usual routes are prohibitively expensive. Since I don't feel comfortable charging readers such high prices for a paperback, I'm offering it in e-book only while I research more affordable options. Hopefully I have a paperback option available to you soon! =D

    2. Hello, Samantha!

      I just wanted to let you know a paperback version is now available! You can find it on Amazon or by following this link:


      Happy Casting!

  3. Have you looked at Smashwords for doing a hard copy? I added this to my list of books to buy. :)

    1. Hello there! Smashwords is an e-book platform, but I do use them! I'm doing some serious research to see how I can get a paperback to you lovely folks without having to charge an insane amount! We'll get there! ;) Thanks for visiting the blog! I appreciate you taking a moment to comment! =D Have a great week!

    2. Hello again, Kathleen!

      There is now a paperback available on Amazon! =D

  4. Recently found you (thank you Pinterest) and signed up for your newsletter. I look forward to having a few extra dollars lying around to add your book to my collection. I look forward to reading it! One of my favorite books so far has been "witch on the go", which I gifted to a dear friend one Yule. (Something my coven does that I love, we go into our closets and bookshelves and gift each other with something we have loved, but no longer use.) Other books I have found fantastic for going back to repeatedly are "element encyclopedia of 5000 spells" and my old day planners from Llewellyn.
    Thank you for all your hard work and effort and this blog. :)

    1. What a sweet comment! Thanks for your support! It's a real mood boost to hear when someone enjoys the blog! =D

      I LOVE your gift-giving idea! What a fantastic way to celebrate without people having to feel stressed. I made a note of your book suggestions and will look into those. Thanks for sharing! And thanks again for your support! =D
