The Hunter's Moon Know Your Full Moon

So many of us have heard of the harvest moon, and many celebrate it around the world in various celebrations and parties. It is readily heralded as one of the most brilliant full moons of the year. But there is one that holds as much significance as this but is shrouded in myth.

The Hunter’s Moon. Also called the Blood Moon, because of the orange-red glow it has due to the elevation of rise in the late autumn atmosphere. Harvest moon falls the first full moon closest to the fall equinox and hunters moon is the next full moon after, usually falling in October, and rarely in November. Most of the full moon’s names are from Native American Myths and lore. Hunters moon was named as it signified a time of easy hunting, even deep into the night to prepare for the long winter ahead.

This year the Hunters moon falls on the evening of October 14, so invite over some friends and have a moon gazing party.

Our Wiccan friends call this the Shedding moon or the Falling Leaf moon. It hold great reverence to many on a spiritual journey. Many believe that the veils between worlds are the thinnest on this night. Pay close attention to all visions, and messages received at this time.
Those wishing to contact loved ones may wish to do so on this night as the bridge between worlds is easiest to cross.

For those of you just wishing to leave an offering to our brother and sister spirits and guides, I have put together a sample list of items you may like to include:

cloth of dark blue or black, stones of obsidian, and or amethyst, fruit such as apples, or fall harvest veggies, corn, small pumpkins and gourds, herbs such as catnip and mint.

Of course this is just an example of things you could use, and it never hurts to set out a glass of wine. Your heart, or your guides will give you guidance on how this moon should be honoured by you.

But what ever you choose to call it, full moon, Hunter’s moon, the big wind moon, moon when water begins to freeze, does not matter. Just take a few special moments for yourself, and thank it for shining on your path. Bask in the wonder that is the full moon. Marvel at the magic it casts upon the earth. And remember that all throughout history, it has been an important part of our past. And hopefully it will remain an important part of our future.

Grandmother moon, watches over the waters of the Earth. She brings the tides. She is also a feminine energy, bringing illumination and creativity. It is said that her cycle was a gift that was given to women to cleanse them mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally.

You may, at this time of full moon ask her to give direction in your life or bring wisdom. You can do this easily, by sitting in the light of the moon. You should bring some water and pour it into a small bowl, then offer it to Grandmother Moon and the Earth. Ask her to bless the water to bring you direction or healing. Allow it to stay in her light for a time. Thank her for her blessing. Now you have blessed moon water to heal yourself or others. And it can also be used to bathe any stones you may have of negative energies, or any unwanted energy attachments. Make sure to thank her for her blessing.

No matter what you believe, it is hard to ignore a full moon. So next time you see one, enjoy its beauty. And if it’s the Hunters moon, its time to store up for the winter months. This moon has always been my personal favourite. It has an air of mystery to it, and you cannot deny the magic in the air. I wish you all a wonderful full moon, and great blessings to you I send on the wind from this moon till the next.
