Blood Full Moon
The blood full moon occurs every year during the month of October. Some say the blood moon got its name due to the reddish hues of the moon. It is said to be a time of magic, wisdom, and connection. What comes to your mind when you think of blood? The eerie and ominous concept of death? The flow of oxygen coursing through your veins to give your body life?
Whether the end of life or the engine for life itself, blood can take the roll of both. The blood moon marks the sign of a season shift as we begin the end of the year when life around us appears to be “dying.” Life seems to flee from the cold months that are just around the corner. Heat is necessary to sustain life and continue blood flow throughout our bodies. The wondrous magic of life within and around us never ceases to amaze me.
Animals show the sage, inherent wisdom by harvesting from everything around them before hibernating, or migrating toward the equator for winter. How does their natural instinct just kick in? How does ours? It is beautiful to see the intelligence within all forms of life showing how we are truly are all connected from the elements, to the trees, to the birds and the bees. Our bodies are naturally engineered to help us survive.
Full Moon in Aries
Our fiery, trailblazing warriors of Aries are aiding us in our full moon release as we have fully immersed ourselves into fall. They keep us active with a burst of creative motivation as they set the tone for the entire season. There is a lot of masculine power and assertion as we take charge of the plans Libra made at the beginning of this lunar cycle.
We are shedding our selfish ways and looking to make bigger changes for everyone to be able to survive the cold, upcoming season.
Virgo and Mars meet up in the sultry sign of Scorpio creating a powerful shift in love. Romance is in the air filled with passion and sensuality. The couple trines Pluto creating a regeneration of love in our romantic partnerships.
The sun conjuncts Mercury, our beloved communicator as we are able to utilize warm, embracing speech in both our interpersonal and interpersonal conversations.
The moon squares Pluto and opposes both the sun and Mercury. This is creating a minor setback in our growth as we subconsciously hold onto some unnecessary ways of thinking, communicating, and developing.
Because Aries is a fire sign I will be utilizing red, orange and yellow candles. I will pair them with sandalwood and rainforest incense to calm the intensity of our beloved, fire sign. It will cleanse the space and bring us down to earth.
My stones of choice will be dendritic agate, tree agate, and my main stone will be fire agate. Fire agate is said to be a flame captured within a stone. It is able to bring courage, protection and strength during these times of release and transformation.
I plan on focusing on letting go of any irrational aggressive tendencies by asking for conducive outlets for my excessive energy.
Enjoy your beautiful release Eternal Waking Beauties! May your fiery passions blaze a trail of light and love.
Om Mani Padme Hum.࿆ૐ
