Time to Let Go and Howl!
October is a busy month to enjoy with our marvelous full Moon October 24, 2018 in Taurus. If you are prone to tilt your head and howl at the moon, like the great hunters the coyotes, this will be the only night this month when the moon will be visible in the sky all night long. Just be mindful of the neighbors when you howl!
In October, we enter the glorious late afternoon of the year. The woodland blazes with vibrant colors. As October passes the door to the otherworld opens wider. We become more receptive to spiritual energies and feel drawn to bond with our ancestors.
To the Native Americans full moons were a way to keep track of the seasons and make appropriate preparations for survival. Besides, with falling leaves and the fattening of wild game, also preparing for winter, who could argue that this month’s moon signaled a good time to go hunting.
The Hunters Full Moon is also called the Shedding Moon, Blood Moon, or the Falling Leaf Moon. Coming right before Samhain/Halloween, it is a time when the nights are crisp and clear, and you can sense a change in the energy around you. When the Blood Moon rises, it smolders like an ember in the autumn sky. She is a beacon for spiritual energy.
Elements to work with on the October Full Moon.
This is the time to give thanks to the animals, fruits, and vegetables during this moon for giving their lives so we can live.
Use red candles and burn cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger as your incense during this full moon.
This is the time when the veil between our world and the spirit world are at its thinnest. Use this time for spiritual growth. If there is a deceased ancestor you wish to contact, this is a great month to do it. Plan a ritual to remember those who have passed from this world, and be sure to make an offering to them. The full moon is always a good time to pray, have ceremonies, and be reminded of the continuation of life.
Throughout October work on your spiritual self, and pay attention to messages you get in your dreams.
On This Full Moon make sure you release what you do not need in your life. It’s a wonderful time to do a Burning Bowl Ceremony or you can even do a bonfire. Write out everything you want to release on paper and throw it into the fire and as the smoke goes up know that you have released it to the Great Spirit. If you do a bonfire after you burn your releases dance around the bonfire as it brings in powerful spiritual vibrations.
Some say it is unlucky to sleep in the light of the moonlight, but I disagree. I relish it. I imagine that I am drawing down her beauty and energy to store it and draw upon as needed.
If you are feeling drained please read my article "Does the Full Moon make you exhausted?"
