Blood Moon………..

Merry Meet my friends!  It’s a gorgeous Spring day here! Sun is shining, it’s quite breezy and warm.  I have spent the morning washing all my throw rugs and hanging them on the line.  I’ve jarred up new herbs in those awesome anniversary Ball jars that are GREEN!!  I love them and need more!!

I’ve made foccachia bread, did some housework and opened doors and windows  to let fresh Air in and stagnate Air out!  Wish I could be outside planting but it’s just not time yet as I’ve said 🙂   I think everyone in the neighborhood is mowing..the scent is amazing!!  Hubby mowed a couple days ago and our grass is greening and lovely!

April 15 is going to be an amazing Full Moon.  It will be a Blood Moon!  A lunar eclipse!  Can you imagine the terror this must have brought in ancient times and the Magickal energy it’s going to bring to us in these times? About 2am EST the Moon will cross the Earth’s shadow turning the Moon a copper red….A Blood Moon.  It will last about an hour. This is one Witch who will be up in the middle of the night soaking in the Energy and Power and watching in amazement!

Another special thing about this Blood Moon…. there will be Four of them in the next year and a half. Pretty much unheard of!! There are sometimes 2 a year, but so subtle most can’t be seen.  There was a 300 year period where there were NO Blood Moons before the 21st century.  It shows how non-common they are.  The dates are April 15, 2014; October 8, 2014; April 4, 2015, and September 28, 2015. I for one will be marking these in my calendar.  I don’t want them to escape me!! 🙂

I would try to use this magick to the fullest extent!  Make Blood Moon Water, energize and cleanse your crystals, jewelry, altar tools…. Draw down the Blood Moon energy into yourself…set out powerful wards and protections with the aid of the added energy,  and just sit and bathe in Her Light.  Full Moon rituals will take on a whole new meaning under  a red, red Moon! Don’t you think?

“But about the first watch the Moon in eclipse, hid at first the brilliance of her heavenly body, then all her light was sullied and suffused with the hue of blood.”

From: Curtius, History of Alexander.
These quotations refer to a lunar eclipse at moonrise in Sicily and at Arbela, of 20/21 September 331 BC.

 

I wish you all an amazing Full Blood Moon!  May Her Light shine on you and fill you with Magickal Power!

 

Blessings and Love, Autumn

    The energy of this Moon has really played havoc with me. I was so looking forward to watching the eclipse, but we are due to have rain beginning Monday night and not ending until Wednesday. Of course! But I will continue to draw down her energy through the clouds here on the Lake. I love your jars and herbs by the way! Have a wonderful Sun Day and your planting time is approaching! Love you!

    • Hi Deb! I have discovered since I wrote this blog..that we will have snow! LOL…Crazy weather this year..but I will hope that we can still see the Moon..snow or not! Thank you so much….for all your support and friendship! Hugs and Love!

    I’m surely hoping there won’t be any clouds~ I shall have to look up some myths info on blood moon

  3. We will be dancing here, as I’m sure you know 🙂 I cannot wait, and wish I was off the next day so I could really enjoy. We may not get to see Her because of a storm coming our way but we will FEEL her no matter. ❤ you Kelly

  4. If I didn’t have an exam the next day I would be up all night. Alas university takes priority, though I think I’m going to plan out a blood-moon meditation.
