July Full Moon

Also known as Mead Moon, Hay Moon, Buck Moon, Lightening and Thunder Moon.

The energies surrounding this full moon are ones of success, happiness, and fulfilment. We are blessed with the first harvest of the season - a reward for all our hard work.
The Moon at this time brings us feelings of being connected. Connection to Spirit encourages us to first recognize blessings in our own lives, and then pay them forward - thus continuing the cycle of positive energy.

Rain is expected once again tomorrow, so I will not be able to get a good clear picture of Mother Moon. Last night I saw her briefly through the clouds. Stepped out my back door, walked down the driveway to the street in an attempt to catch Her. I wanted to see her in all her almost- full glory! But she remained elusive. Hidden.

Thinking She was hiding in the trees, I trespassed on somebody's property to see if I could find Her. Doesn't sound like much of an offence, except that I'd called Security Patrol on these neighbours one afternoon last month because they were lighting an open fire in their backyard. I was worried the wind would carry the flames and spread the fire.
As you can imagine, I did not want to be seen traipsing through the wet grass of their lawns!

All that to say, Mother Moon has been elusive this cycle. I have not felt Her power, Her magic as I normally do during these summer months.

However, a Full Moon Ritual is planned with my group of Earth Healers. For my part, I doubt that She will be visible to me, so I will see what it feels like to simply sense Her presence. I will absorb her hidden energy tomorrow night, and Listen.....

Beforehand, I will unearth my crystals and choose a few (those that feel appropriate) to use in a ritual. Lighting a candle or two always feels right. At the end, I will raise a glass of red wine to toast Her, and Listen....

Dance in the moon’s light though you see it not. Her music is there behind the clouds. Her pull draws you as the tides… May the clouds part making way her entrance… Ah the beauty of the moon shines…. Love and Light, Nina P.

Sweet Wendy I got a good view of her yesterday and she was beautiful. She sends her love to you and told me to tell you that she saw you creeping on your bad neighbours grass and was really grateful for your valiant attempt.

Love Renee xoxox

hi. I'm wondering the all purple photo. with the really big fairy and the two small ones. Is the photo yours or did you get it from somewhere else? If you got it from somewhere else could you tell me where please, if you know. If it is yours would you mind if I use the photo for my senior project? My senior project is writing and publishing a book and I want to use that photo as my fron cover...please?
