(Even though the month of January is mention in this short article the spell at the end I feel can be done on any Full Moon throughout the year.)
Once upon a time there was…
the Moon! A traditional means of teaching lessons and revealing truths, fairy and folk tales are peopled with heroes and heroines, sometimes in the form of the Moon who appears as both a character and catalyst. In her face we see our own, in her shadows, the depths of our personal darkness. Over the course of the year, celebrate Luna’s full phase with the wisdom of legend. What does she see as she changes from moment to moment? Hans Christian Anderson might have been pondering this when he penned “What the Moon Saw” in 1840. From her perch in the heavens, the Moon watches over the world and all the people in it. Night after night she reports on the beauty of nature that she sees and revels in the mundane details of people’s everyday lives. Her message? There is magic and wonder in all things.
At January’s FUll Moon, ask Luna to help you see and appreciate the wonders of the world around you, great and small:
Luna, show me what you see,
That I, like you, may blessed be.
