Merry Esbat

image

Hope you are all enjoying tonight’s beautiful full moon, as I certainly am.

Tonight’s moon is in Virgo.
This is a good time to cast spells and perform workings in service of others.

To me, February’s moon is the Fruit Moon, which fits well with my local area. 
This is the time when stone fruit is harvested and there is an abundance of delicious fresh fruit available.

The February full moon in the Southern Hemisphere can also be dubbed the following names:

Harvest Moon
Grain Moon
Sturgeon Moon
Red Moon
Wyrt Moon
Corn Moon
Dog Moon
Barley Moon

Merry Esbat!

Aquarian Super Moon

The energy of last nights moon was very strong.

Not surprisingly, as this was the super moon of the year, the closest the moon will be to the earth all year.

In the Southern Hemisphere, this was also an Esbat to celebrate, as it is the last Full Moon of Winter.

Unfortunately, it was much to cold to work outside in the moonlight, but it didn’t much matter, the energy of my indoor circle was crackling with life and joy.

I left my stones outside to charge and the strength of the moon has imbued them with a very strong energy.

They even look clearer and are sparkling with life, their colors enhanced by the moon’s rays.

I also charged some moon water, for use as an elixir and in ritual, capturing the power of this amazing moon in a bottle.

The Best Of The Super Moon

This month’s Full Moon is a special one.

As well as being our last Winter moon, it is also a Super Moon.

We have had several Super Moons this year, but this month’s will be the biggest and brightest of them all.

2014-08-09 06.21.15

I am really looking forward to working with the energy of this glorious moon, though I am a bit sad that it will be too cold to hold my rites outdoors, in the moonlight.

Outdoors is preferable, but being miserably cold is not very conducive to good ritual!

Full Moon Magick

Merry Esbat Witches and Pagans!

It is currently 10.30pm and I am waiting for my Daughter to finish her shift at work, so I can go and pick her up and start my ritual.

I get very restless when ritual time is drawing near.

That is a good thing though, as it makes raising energy in the circle that much easier.

 

It is very cloudy here tonight and though I can’t see the moon, I can certainly feel her lunar energy!

 

Here are some photos of full moons past, as getting one tonight is impossible.

Merry meet!
