Harvest Moon 

Witches Moon

Libra Sep. ~ Oct.

Scorpio Oct ~ Nov.

This full Witches Moon is also know as the Hunters Moon, Vine Moon, Blood Moon, Sanguine Moon, Travel Moon and Falling Leaf Moon. The leaves have fallen, the fields are empty and the forest animals have fattened up for the winter. This time of the year brings us a perfect opportunity to reflect on our goals that bring about Spiritual Advancement. We look to learn from our ancestors who brought us into being and those that have passed as well as the plants and the animals that have given their lives to sustain ours. A time for storing our provisions, a time to cook old family recipes and retell old family stories in honor. We will take a look at scrying and dream work, participate in healings, and do some crafting together. Please join us in this time of honor.
