  • Equinox Full Vine Moon, Tuesday 25th September 2018

    Tuesday 25th September @ 03.54 is Pagan Equinox Full Vine Moon (Monday night/Tuesday Morning). 

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel.

    To the left is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

    Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop. 

    See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition. The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook.  Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, and associated each with a tree; this is the Vine Moon(thoughtco.com). All over the northern hemisphere, at this time of year, the fruits of vine are ripe for harvesting and ready for the first stages of wine production. The vine is a symbol of passionate emotions whether expressing either joy or wrath. The Celts called the month Muin (Neopagans call it Mabon) and typical celebrations would include magical workings connecting with gardens involving both ends of the emotional spectrum (such as exhilaration and rage) acknowledging also the darker aspects of the Mother Goddess. Vine leaves can be used to enhance goals and ambitions. This year, being very close to the Equinox, the Vine Moon will carry the frequency of balance and harmony embodied by the Equinox when light and dark are in perfect balance.  

    Other names for a Full Moon in September are: Fruit Moon, Harvest Moon (Northern Hemisphere) or Worm Moon, Sugar Moon, Chaste Moon, (Southern Hemisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Equinox Moon could also be called the Harvest Moon, or Hunter’s Moon, Frosty Moon, Beaver Moon (after the autumnal equinox)or Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Planting Moon, or Milk Moon, Rose Moon, Flower Moon, or Strawberry Moon (after the spring equinox). Source = earthsky.org. 

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body.  In view of this being an Equinox Full Moon (where the focus is on balance), I would say it's an even better time than usual for a detox.  I recommend anoil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    See my Facebook Live on Saturday 31st March is the Equinox Easter Alder Blue Full Moon (featuring the energies of the March 2018 Equinox Full Moon event plus instructions on Oil Pulling and Angela McGerr's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel). Plus, if you're interested, 'Has Easter been superimposed onto an earlier Pagan celebration Eostre?' 

  • Monday 20th/Tuesday 21st September, Full Moon Meditation (Equinox Harvest Full Moon @ 00:55 Monday night/Tuesday morning)

    21 Sep Harvest Equinix Full MoonTuesday 21st September @ 00:55 (Monday night/Tuesday morning) is the Equinox Harvest Full Moon.

    Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    new moon new vision 2Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing balance and wellbeing into our lives. 

    My next lunar cycle study course is Wednesday 6th October - Thursday 4th November.

    The Native American tribes named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. The Full Moon nearest to the Equinox is the Harvest Moon(it can be in September or October). There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. Some Native Americans identified this as the Harvest Moon as it heralded the end of the summer season, when the crops were gathered. At this time, the Moon rises early and appears particularly bright, allowing farmers to continue harvesting into the night. See more at timeanddate.com.

    Although the Celts, wth their Druid priests, were believed to have revered nature, the idea that they also had tree names for each Full Moon of the year, is neo-Pagan, having been introduced by Robert Graves in the 1948, which I find rather charming. So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings; this is the Vine Moon(thoughtco.com). All over the northern hemisphere, at this time of year, the fruits of vine are ripe for harvesting and ready for the first stages of wine production. The vine is a symbol of passionate emotions whether expressing either joy or wrath.

    The Native American tribes named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. The December Moon is caled the Cold Moon,as its considered the month when winter starts in the northern hemisphere. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. See more at timeanddate.com.

    Although the Celts, wth their Druid priests, were believed to have revered nature, the idea that they also had tree names for each Full Moon of the year, is neo-Pagan, having been introduced by Robert Graves in the 1948, which I find rather charming. So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings, this is the Elder Moon (thoughtco.com). The Elder Moon marks a time of passing. The Elder bush damages easily but bursts back into life recovering promptly and so it is representing the coming New Year. The Celts called this month Ruish (pronounced roo-esh) and it's a time for renewal, rejuvenation and creativity, endings and beginnings and therefore still honouring the cycle of life - birth, death and re-birth.  Elder is used in magic lore to connect with the Faerie realms and nature spirits and is reputed to protect against negative entities. 

    Other names for a Full Moon in December are: Frost Moon, Hunter's Moon, Moon before Yule, Long Night Moon (Northern Hermisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Full Moon could also be called the Harvest Moon, or Hunter’s Moon, Frosty Moon, Beaver Moon, Moon Before Yule or Long Night Moon (after the autumnal equinox)or Old Moon, Moon after Yule, Snow Moon, Hunger Moon, Wolf Moon, Sap Moon, Crow Moon or Lenten Moon (after the winter solstice). Source = earthsky.org,which also includes a link detailing names from other ancient cultures at  lunarphasepro.com

  • Thursday 18th November, Beaver Full Moon Meditation at 19.30 UK time/GMT (Full Moon peaks Friday 19th at 08:58)

    19 Dec Full Moon in Dec

    Thursday 18th November is the Beaver Full Moon meditation. The Full Moon peaks at 08:58 on Friday 19th, when we also have a penumbral eclipse, the first of two eclipses in the next 30 days.

    Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    This month we have an eclipse; part of analmost tetrad" (link to timeanddate.com for details), when a series of four major lunar eclipses in two years. Starting in May this year, three of these eclipses are total, while the one taking place early tomorrow UK time, is a deep partial eclipse, that is so deep that it is nearly a total eclipse. It will be visible in  Austalia, North and South America parts of Asia and europe. It's visible in the Uk between 06.02 and 07.24 then it will disappear behind the horizon.

    Even when we don't see an eclipse, it affects us energetically. Eclipses bring an opportunity for deep transformation; allow it to help you discover better clarity, understanding and more inner contentment.

    instruments and at this time of year, as the wind blows through the dying reeds (they die back in winter), and the resulting eerie haunting sound was thought to be the souls of the departed on their final journey to the underworld. The Celts called this month Negatal (pronounced nyettle) and it's a time for magical relating to spirit guides, meditation, energy work and honouring the cycle of life - birth, death and re-birth.  It's also a good time for scrying and divination. The neo pagans sometimes refer to this month by it's alternative name of Elm Moon.

    The Native American tribes named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. The Full Moon nearest to the Equinox is the Hunter Moon (also an Anglo-Saxon term), Harvest Moon(it can be in September or October) or Blood Moon. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. This was noted as the month when game fattens. Traditionally, this month would have been used for hunting, slaughtering and preserving meats for the coming winter months. Other names are Travel Moon and Dying Grass Moon. Some also called it Blood Moon or Sanguine Moon, which also refers to the hunting season. See more at timeanddate.com.

    Although the Celts, wth their Druid priests, were believed to have revered nature, the idea that they also had tree names for each Full Moon of the year, is neo-Pagan, having been introduced by Robert Graves in the 1948, which I find rather charming. So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings, this is the Ivy Moon(thoughtco.com). Samhain (Halloween, 31st October) is approaching and the year is coming to a close. The Ivy Moon marks the end of the harvest season, when most of the plants have withered but the evergreen Ivy carries on (even when its host has died), reminding us of the ongoing circle of life - life, death and rebirth. The Celts called the month Gort (pronounced go-ert) and it is seen as a time to banish fear and negativity from your life. Protect yourself from people, products and activities that are toxic to you. Ivy can be used in magical ceremonies for protection, healing, co-operation and for binding lovers together.

    Other names for a Full Moon in October are: Harvest Moon, Hunter's Moon, Blood Moon (not to be confused witht a term for a Total Lunar Eclipse) or Sanguine Moon (Northern Hemisphere) or Egg Moon, Fish Moon, Seed Moon, Pink Moon, Waking Moon, (Southern Hemisphere).

This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme. And, most importantly, it's a step towards making a difference to the global predicament.
