It’s a half moon tonight. Even at 50% the moon makes shadows as it shines into my car. It makes me think of balance and duality. Illumination and shadows; what’s presented and what’s hidden. 

I believed for a long time that a part of marriage was knowing your partner 100%. Knowing everything about them, every thought, every idea, every temptation, everything. 

The moon hides half of herself away tonight and so do I. Because even though I love my partner, some of myself is just for me. 

We all have parts of ourselves that never get shared with anyone, that are impossible to share. There’s a whole universe and reality inside our minds, images and thoughts that can’t be shared and can only ever exist inside ourselves. 

Witchcraft is teaching me to fall in love with and treasure the shadows inside of me that can only ever belong to me.
