My beloved Divine Mother
Dance with me under the soft moon shining
in the wide open fields
far beyond the toil and trouble of my busy mind
Dance with me before the night grows old
while the winds of love
still bow the grasses
and the coyotes howl for you to step their way
Dance with me my beloved
while the Mystery’s Edge still flirts in the shadow
of your radiant light.
The above poem, taken from Soft Moon Shining by Ethan Walker III encapsulates the awe directed towards the moon that many of us have. Watching this satellite change from its first sliver of light through to full, back to its final sliver before even disappearing from our night’s view, only to once again appear conjures up all manner of feelings and associations.
Together we will gather in a sacred space to discover what the lunar energies will be for the coming month. Through the process of meditation, we will seek clarity and guidance for the coming lunar cycle as well as give thanks to the gifts and insights provided during the previous cycle.
The energy of the full moon tends to make us purge and release things from our lives. Therefore it is important that we make sure that we are in control of what we are releasing due to the heightened emotions also experienced around the time of the full moon, otherwise we may regret our decision. Often the full moon is a time when we reap what we sowed at the new moon, for good or for ill. As such we need to be mindful of what we bring into our own lives.
