Blog changes

In an effort to get this blog back on track I have simplified it, deleted some of the attached one-topic blogs
and focused on Sabbats and Esbats, which was the original intent.
Other writings will be in 'stumbling upon the path of the goddess'
and the Borrowed Book of Charms is still active.

November Full Moon - Snow Moon

The Full Moon in Scorpio-Taurus is on November 10 at 3:16 pm EST

The November Full Moon is often known as the Snow Moon, Beaver Moon or Tree Moon.
This is a time of year to strengthen bonds with family and friends.  The winter is coming and depending on others used to be necessary for survival.  This is an old attitude that perhaps we should rely on more.

This is a good time of year for divination, remember that at Samhain the curtain was at its thinnest, that hasn't suddenly changed.  Get out your Tarot cards, Runes, Pendulums, Crystals or whatever other tools you use and ask for guidance in the coming months.

Full Moon is, of course, a time that magical people of all traditions gather to honor the Goddess, or reflect on the universal energy or offer respect to local Gods and Goddesses.
If you do not have access to a Coven,  a Grove, a Kindred, a Clan or another gathering and you feel that a community ritual would suit you best, look for the nearest Unitarian Church.  Chances are they are holding a Circle tonight.

Along with ritual, this is a good time for relieving stress, teaching your body to relax, using meditation and essential oils can calm the mind and body and make the stresses of life easier to handle. 
Try a simple cleansing/relaxing bath as part of your ritual today.   Substitute or leave out ingredients to make use of what you have at hand.  Lavender is relaxing to the mind and body and citrus is cleansing.
one cup of powered milk
half cup of espsom salts
half cup of sea salt
8 drops of lavender essential oil
4 drops lemon essential oil
Mix and pour into running bath water

I turn off the electric lights, light a candle and do a meditation while I am soaking in the heat and wonderful feelings from this bath.

Full Moon Blessing to you
