It’s Friday the 13th and the Full Harvest Moon in Pisces.
My energy is all over the place! While it doesn't seem unlikely for me to put on my lucky Friday the 13th dress, play with my luck in getting tickets to see Bauhaus, then run out to offer my arms and legs for inexpensive flash tattoos, grab 13 donuts, terrorize a suburban woman with a "ch-ch-ch-ah-ah-ah" as I walk by her in Trader Joes; pumpkin bread mix in hand and then chill and watch teens get murdered at Camp Crystal Lake, I have other plans to harness and use this energy.
Tonite the Full Harvest Moon will be at its peak. I haven't found a forest in SoCal that I truly feel connected with. So, dancing naked in the forest is out. And it feels better this way because it's a Full Harvest Moon in Pisces. I'll be taking my intentions to the ocean tonite.
The moon has so much power to offer. It's blamed for bringing out the crazy in people. Such a potent energy can't be contained and doesn't bode well for some who have no idea why they feel the need to do something out of character. It makes for interesting stories and superstitions.
Personally, I felt drawn to the moon when the stirring within me became impossible to ignore. This was roughly two years ago. There was magick working in me when I didn't even know it. The day after Xmas 2017, I had the opportunity to spend four days in complete solitude. I simply opened myself up during that time. And without realizing I was doing it, I wrote some wishes on a piece of paper, burned them with the flame of a white candle I had lit, and threw the ashes into the air facing North. Seriously, I had no idea. It was fun to just make wishes again, and I had to learn more about witchcraft and specifically how to call on the moon. I have been doing moon rituals ever since. Harnessing and using magick that is amplified by the moon has opened me up in ways prayers to an invisible man in the sky never did. I have been set free. I am powerful. Charging water and crystals during the full moon offers me the full moons strength when I feel out of sorts when its not the full moon. With tonite's rare moon, I am letting go of the things that are no longer serving me. Things that make me feel shitty and letting the waves take them. While it pains me to let go of some of these things, I know for a fact that they will be replaced with even better purposes. Then I will celebrate the coming darkness with some wine, candles and music.
If you are taking the time to read this, I hope you take a few moments to look up at the moon. Whisper a wish to her and let something go thats been holding you back. By the light of the moon.
And so it is.
