I always cut my hair on a New Moon and an Eclipse always makes the New Moon even more powerful, so I thought this was a great time for her first haircut, although she didn't really need one, hence the tiny lock!
First cut baby hair are often used in fertility magic and they also make powerful amulets to ward off evil. I will give it to her one day, along with a piece of her first blooded underwear, as my mother did to me(although for the life of me, I can't remember the spell I used them in!). Needless to say that she gave them to me when I turned 16 and I used them a few days later, month tops! I loved practicing magic and I had no patience whatsoever.
Brightest blessings to all of you beautiful people!
