A Supermoon is a New or a Full moon which coincides with the closest distance to the earth in its orbit. This means the moon appears larger […]Super Full Blue Moon Magick: 31st August 2023
As always, I really enjoy Setjataset’s blog posts. She is a practitioner I know personally and admire: her blog is worth a visit.
She also very generously shares posts like this detailing the Moon phases, Festival dates, both their Traditional dates and the actual Moment.
She has two excellent posts about the various moons for 2023 as well that she shared at the start of the year (as she does every year, her consistency and discipline is part of what I admire about her.)
I have always loved the beauty of a Full Moon.
Even before my cancer experience, as I was closing out my 40s, I found this quote from Roman Payne that just resonated for me.
I fancied my luck to be witnessing yet another Full Moon. True, I’d seen hundreds of Full Moons in my life, but they were not limitless. When one starts thinking of the Full Moon as a common sight that will come again to one’s eyes ad infinitum, the value of life is diminished and life goes by uncherished.
“This may be my last Moon,” I sighed, feeling a sudden sweep of sorrow; and went back to reading more of The Odyssey.”
Full Moon Honouring
Mysterious Illumination, I honour you.
You who transform darkness into light,
Even as, in all your glory, the Moon is full, so too, might I be illuminated.
Full Moon, change in me what changes in you,
Guide me through High Tides,
Grace me with Light, Guidance, and your blessings.
Full Moon, may I glimpse mystery, may I embrace the strength and wisdom of illumination,
and the deep, ancient, transformative powers of knowledge;
like all those who have gone before me;
guided by your light, and celebrating your gentle brilliance.
I dare to dwell in beauty, harmony, and delight,
I dare to see with clear eyes, and an open heart.
I honour the Mysterious Ones,
Both Above, and Below,
Both Within, and Without,
Known and Unknown.
I honour The Guides, and the Guardians,
Past, Present, and Future,
Known and Unknown.
I honour myself, the work I have done, and will do.
Empower me to manifest your divine Beauty and Grace
In my words, thoughts, actions, body and face.
I honour you.
