My Facebook Memories feed popped up a poem I wrote at the Full Moon in October 2017.
I’m in the Southern Hemisphere, and we are shifting from the energies of the Spring Equinox to the energies of Beltaine.
A veiled Full Moon,
A mild Spring evening,
The gentle surprise of freshly blooming Jasmine and Wisteria perfuming the air..
Seeping into a care worn soul,
and soothing a worried mind,
healing a hurt heart,
whispering promises of new beginnings..

Just a heads up, Total Lunar Eclipse: 8th November 2022- Lunar Eclipse Magick
I mark the Dark Moon as the night before, but again, there are lots of variations as to how people observe the Lunar calendar. Some people don’t consider it a New Moon until you can see the crescent in the sky. I live in Melbourne, and there is frequent cloud cover, so I go with the times.
Observing the Phases of the Moon is part of my devotional practice. I find this practice helps keep me grounded and open to appreciating beauty and moments of awe and wonder. It also helps me move through particularly unpleasant times in my life.
