30-Days of Samhain 2021: Day Eleven

Full Moon is Coming! Come, Gather Near!

Full Moon is coming
Come gather near
The magick is upon us
Our Ancestors are near.

Aries rises with enthusiasm
Youthful energy and joy
The promise it holds is new gifts of
The Mysteries and awakenings to explore.

The season is filled with new opportunity
The time has finally come to reveal
The power and promise of the final harvest’s 
Energy to release, to embrace and to heal. 

Full Moon is coming
The Mother is at hand
In Her light and in Her shadow
In the legacy of Our Own Divinity
In brilliance and wonder WE now Stand.

Mother Moon waxes Full on Wednesday, October 20th in the astrological sign of fiery and catalyzing Aries. In these few days surrounding on either side, those that precede offer opportunity to gather to ourselves the tools and energy wishing to be birthed into fullness and those following allow for the integration and synthesizing of the Full Moon’s potency. And, we are in the midst of Samhain’s season and tides, which provide another layer of insight and mystery to reveal in this brilliance of moon light.

There are many “hows” and ways in which to mark this Esbat and as we know, intention is everything when reaching out in extension towards the mysteries and gifts and of cosmic energy. Ritual is one way as is contemplative pause. Pathworking and visualization provide a certain ambience and keys as they were. I would also suggest action as a source of celebration. Pure and simple “action”!

Astrological Aries is the first of the twelve signs of the great Zodiacal Wheel and as such is often equated as the child of the zodiac. Youthful and unabashed excitement, boundless energy and a perspective that is the beauty of a child-Limitlesness! Freedom, no limitation, nothing unattainable and magick all around. These are the inherent staples of most children.

So, what if we actively sought out more knowledge of our ancestral lineage? What if we actively moved through a natural setting, fully awakening to the beings and “life” that inhabits those spaces? What if we danced with joy in the space of welcome we have created to honor our beloved departed? What if we embrace this Full Moon , seeing the eyes and wonder of a child in seeing the first moonbeams creating a trail of stardust into the unknown? What if___________________________ (you fill in the blanks)?

Not to worry, on Wednesday, I will offer a small ritual celebration that may be used in a more (or less) traditional way of honoring the Full Moon. But, for today, let’s just bask in the build up, gather to ourselves the joy of anticipation and actively and unabashedly  move through our day!
