Full Harvest Moon & Fall Equinox:
The Harvest Moon is the full Moon closest to the Fall Equinox. At the peak of harvest; corn, pumpkins, squash, & beans are now ready for gathering. We are blessed with much to be thankful for! In this circle, we will rejoice & indulge in the awakenings of the harvest including a witch's brew & holiday fare. The Fall Equinox has mostly become a harvest home celebration and much of the spiritual aspects have been lost or forgotten.
At the moment of the Fall Equinox, the Sun passes the equator making days & nights equal in length. From this moment until the Winter Solstice, the Sun's strength diminishes. It is a dramatic moment of cosmic balance as well as change, putting us in touch with the transformational nature of life here on Earth.
Are you ready to face change?
Are you ready to bring warmth & light into a time of cold & dark?
The rhythm of change is divine & balances us physically & spiritually. As our awareness is brought to cycles of death & rebirth, we are comforted by Mother Earth's ability to continue life beyond death & we set our intention to deepen our commitment to life & faith. In moments of magick, we truly know & feel that we are in flow with the rhythm of life & unite with the oneness of Spirit. In this circle, we set ourselves up to do magick ~ achieved through ritual & ceremony.
The broom is an ancient tool for practical magick; it is used to sweep a ritual area clean before casting a spell. Sweeping with a witch's broom is not intended to make your house spotless, but is a symbolic act for maintaining your home as a personal sanctuary. It is important that you do not use a ritual broom for housecleaning & to purify your space with as much of your own personal energy as possible, a broom you have crafted by hand is best.
In this circle, we will use dead grass harvested from Luna's yard to make a small purification broom & add crystals to boost its power. Smaller brooms are ideal for cleansing altars & hanging on doors. Witches usually leave their purification brooms near doorways pointed up for protection, believing that any negative energy entering a room will be neutralized by entering one end of the broom then traveling down, up, and out.
This circle will center around the warmth of ceremonial fire. The center provides a neutral space to deposit stories, opinions, thoughts, & feelings which we can lean into with curiosity & without judgement. A neutral center allows people to listen & speak in a more intentional way. We will also have a ceremonial altar to the side which all are invited to contribute to.
The meeting spot for this circle is at Luna's home, along the shore of Arrowhead Mountain Lake, where we can enjoy the warmth of a blazing fire!
