There has been a death in Big Dawg’s, Lady Beltane’s fiancée, family.
I am sorry for not being able to let you all know what is going on with the daily posts I do on Witchcraft and More until today. The following is not an excuse for me not posting but an explanation of why I have not done so. My fibromyalgia flare has been so bad since last Thursday that I could not even wear anything but a very loose fitting robe. Anything that touched my body in anyway sent me into tears. I also have to deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder, Clinic depression, and arthritis though out my body. I fight them all the best I can but some days or serval days some or all of them catch up to me. Which is what happened starting last Friday. It is just starting to taper off so I hope to be back to catch up birthday horoscopes and do regular daily posting again sometime this week. It has taken me almost an hour to get this typed and to find information of the fore mentioned medical problems. I am sure I am not the only one out here in cycberland having to deal with with some or all of these problems. I am on medication for the fibromyalgia, Clinical Depression, and Anxiety attacks. I use White Willow Bark and Passionflower tea for the athirst.
Thank you for bearing with my absence once again, your support and patience as I deal with this awful auto-immune disease and other medical problems!!! May you all be blessed with good health, love, harmony, and laughter. I will be back as soon as I can comfortably type.
The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase
The Waxing Gibbous on December 26 has an illumination of 88%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On December 26 the Moon is 11.39 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.
