The Stars Align-

Post by Hytegia » Tue Oct 06, 2009 6:01 am

If my math is correct (and, by the gods, it usually is in these matters) this year's a special Year. Three cosmic events occouring within the span of this month on a single day-
1) Samhain
2) Full Moon
3) The Full Moon is a Blue Moon (the second to arise each month!)

So you better dust off those Robes and get ready for the Highest of High Magick... It's gonna be coarsing through the air, and the Astral will be strumming with Mystery and Wonder!

Far as I was aware, the full moon wasn't happening until November 2nd (northern hemisphere) November 3rd (southern hemisphere). When I picked the day of our wedding, October 31st this year, I picked it cause it was Beltane on our end of the world, but would of been incredibly happy had it been a full moon as well lol.

I just checked as well. I usually call the moon full the day before and the day after, but I'm not certain if it counts... It will be powerful though! Everybody make sure to put a bump into your wards this Samhain... Winter is Coming!

Aww....
Well, I did it out on a piece of paper using complex makeshift diagrams on a Linear function graph where it bases the Full moon at the crest and the New Moon at the Troth based upon my current position in the Norther Hemisphere and the conditions surrounding the area at the time.....

Oh well!

It was still pretty close Hytegia :-) And as Kitsune says, it will still be a very powerful samhain/beltane.

Did have a quick look around, and it appears that while we will have a few years of the same kind of phases around that time of year (full moon within days of samhain), in 2016 there is meant to be a new moon on samhain, and in 2020 a full moon on samhain. Could be interesting.

I have been admiring the moon the last week. It is the brightest I have seen it in a full year. There's something special about the October moon :D Certainly very powerful!!
