Merry Meet All,
The Full Moon will soon show off her milky white power and glory. I love full moons. This full moon is known as the Corn Moon. Now is the time for the harvesting and gathering of what you planted in the spring. It is also known as Wyrt (green plant) Moon.
Use this time to practice magickal workings and to focus on what you harvested in your life, not just your greens. Divinations, spells, and rituals would be good to do. This is a time to finish projects that you began. The Wheel of the Year is turning. The dark half of the year is coming.
Here is how to perform a full moon esbat. If you are in a coven or a solitary, you can still have a magical time!! Smudge and cleanse yourself and your circle area with sage, frankincense, rosemary. Prepare the area and have at hand a special full moon candle. Adorn your candle with glitter and adorn your altar with lunar symbols- silver, crystals, lunar herbs. Call on the Goddess for her blessings and guidance. Stand at the altar and hold your arms out. Face the beautiful milky moon and utter a chant or prayer to the Goddess. Light your special candle and thank your deity of choice or the Goddess for the magical enchantment.
When you are ready, and you have meditated, close the circle and end the ritual. You can make an offering to the Goddess. I filled a jar with lunar charged water- mint essential oil, a dime, + a crystal, then poured that on my garden as part of the full moon ritual. Move into the Cakes & Ale ceremony. It is done.
This might be the last time of the year that some witches get to practice a ritual outdoors. The nights will turn cooler and darker earlier. Whether you are in a coven or practice solitary, I wish you all a blessed Full Moon.
