I am sorry for not being able to let you all know what is going on with the daily posts until today. The following is not an excuse for me not posting but an explanation of why I have not done so. My fibromyalgia flare has been so bad since last week that I could even wear anything but a very loose fitting robe. Anything that touched my body in anyway sent me into tears. I also have to deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder, Clinic depression, and arthritis though out my body. I fight them all the best I can but some days or serval days some or all of them catch up to me. Which is what happened starting last Friday. It is just starting to taper off so I hope to be back to catch up birthday horoscopes and do regular daily posting again sometime this week on WOTC. Plus go back to posting on Coven Life more often. It has taken me almost an hour to get this typed and to find information of the fore mentioned medical problems. I am sure I am not the only one out here in cycberland having to deal with with some or all of these problems. I am on medication for the fibromyalgia, Clinical Depression, and Anxiety attacks. I use White Willow Bark and Passionflower tea for the athirst.
Thank you for bearing with my absence once again, your support and patience as I deal with this awful auto-immune disease and other medical problems!!! May you all be blessed with good health, love, harmony, and laughter. I will be back as soon as I can comfortably type.
Today the Moon will be in a Full Moon phase. During a Full Moon the moon is 100% illuminated as seen from Earth and is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. The Moon will be visible throughout the night sky rising at sunset in the east and setting with the sunrise the next morning. The point at which a Full Moon occurs can be measured down to a fraction of a second. The time it takes between full moons is known as a Synodic month and is 29.530587981 days long. Keep track of all the Full Moons throughout the year on the Full Moon Calendar >
The Full Moon on October 1 has an illumination of 100%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On October 1 the Moon is 14.42 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

I am sorry but we will not be hosting a Mabon gathering this year. We are still trying to figure out if we want to do another chatroom which is not very interactive or use Skype so everyone can see and hear what is being done in the ritual. Plus with Skype our social hour and monthly open chats I believe will be more fun and interesting. This way you also get to see you coven sisters and brothers. If you do not have a web cam or only want to do audio that will be up to each person. We will tell you more about how it will work before the next full Moon on October 1st in the Northern Hemisphere and October 2nd in the Southern Hemisphere. One way or another the October full Moon Esbat will happen.
