Full Moon Ritual 2/10/2017

WHAT YOU NEED:

1 White 12 inch Taper Candle for each person you want to send healing to

Sandalwood or Other Oil  you feel appropriate to anoint each candle

Matches or Lighter

Merry meet and merry greet to our brothers and sisters.

I cast this sacred circle round all those here three times three to protect all inside, to gather our strength and power as one to send healing to those in need. I cast this sacred circle to initiate our novices and adepts within the safety of our coven’s circle.

We stand in a time that is out of time. In a space between worlds. Within here we welcome the Devine to bless this circle and all who are in it.

I call upon Kwan Yin to come to the watchtower of the East. Great Lady, we welcome you and your healing power be brought into our circle.

I call Apollo to come to the watchtower of the South. Great Lord, we welcome you and call upon your powers of light, enlightenment, prophecy, medicine, poetry, dance, and reason be brought into our circle.

I call upon Sirona to come to the watchtower of the West. Great Lady, we welcome you and ask that your healing powers be brought into our circle.

I call upon Inaus to come to the watchtower of the North. Great Lord, we welcome you and call upon you r powers of beginnings, endings, transitions, times, doorways, gateways, passageways, movement, and traveling. Be brought into our circle.

Quite meditation for 2 minutes while the Gods and Goddesses join us and the power in our circle starts to rise to do the healing work on our novices April (liver malfunctioning) and Sally (breast cancer). (This is the time to inscribe the name on your candle for the person you are asking healing for and to “dress it” with the oil. To dress the candle you get a little oil on the tip on the index finger on your power hand and trace the symbol of a pentagram three times onto the candle. Turning it slightly after each pentagram so this entire candle is anointed or “dressed”.)

Light your candle during the first time the spell is said. Spell will be repeated 3 times. It is to be spoken out load by each person to help whom ever s name is on your candle.

We are asking healing for these people – Sally, April, Lady Abyss and Lady Beltane. Type in the names or names of people you are asking that healing be sent to please.

Kwan Yin, Sirona, Ancient Elements of Fire, Air, Water, and Earth,

Gather around fill in name of person on your candle whatever is their hearth.

Help heal insert illness, disease for person on your candle that is keeping them down,

So they might improve and more easily move around.

At the end of third time say “So mote it be” or however you end your spells. Then type into the chat room “Blessings for healing.” Leave your candle burn in a safe place for one hour. Relight candle every day/evening for a half-hour until it has burned all the way down. When you relight the candle say “Candle burning bright. Release your power with all its might.”

We will now be welcoming our current and new novices back or into the coven as well as initiate our new adepts. We ask at this time that anyone not a member of this coven to please say could night and depart. There is a small doorway open so you can exit.

The circle is once again sealed

We welcome our current and new novices into our circle. Would you please give us your name and the state or country where you live.

Lady Beltane – after all novices have shared – We welcome you with open arms as potential full members of our coven. But as you are part of the coven now it is asked of you to keep the coven’s and other members identities a secret as well as anything discussed in a coven class gathering.

FULL MOON FOR FEBRUARY 2017

FEBRUARY FULL MOON NAMES

February’s full Moon is traditionally called the Full Snow Moon because usually the heaviest snows fall in February.

Hunting becomes very difficult, and so some Native American tribes called this the Hunger Moon.

Other Native American tribes called this Moon the “Shoulder to Shoulder Around the Fire Moon” (Wishram Native Americans), the “No Snow in the Trails Moon” (Zuni Native Americans), and the “Bone Moon” (Cherokee Native Americans). The Bone Moon meant that there was so little food that people gnawed on bones and ate bone marrow soup.

See more about the month’s Full Moon names and their meanings.

Some of the names for February’s Full Moon and their meanings are:

Full Moon Names and Their Meanings from FArmer’s Almanac

Full Moon names date back to Native Americans, of what is now the northern and eastern United States. The tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full Moon. Their names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred. There was some variation in the Moon names, but in general, the same ones were current throughout the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. European settlers followed that custom and created some of their own names. Since the lunar month is only 29 days long on the average, the full Moon dates shift from year to year. Here is the Farmers Almanac’s list of the full Moon names.

Full Snow Moon – February Since the heaviest snow usually falls during this month, native tribes of the north and east most often called February’s full Moon the Full Snow Moon. Some tribes also referred to this Moon as the Full Hunger Moon, since harsh weather conditions in their areas made hunting very difficult. http://farmersalmanac.com/full-moon-names/

Full Moon Names and Meanings from 

Many human cultures have given names to the full moon throughout the year. Different full moon names can be found among the Chinese, Celtic, Old English, and New Guinea cultures, to name a few. In addition, Native American tribes often used moon phases and cycles to keep track of the seasons and gave a unique name to each recurring full moon. The full moon names were used to identify the entire month during which each occurred.

Although many Native American Tribes gave distinct names to the full moon, the most well known names of the full moon come from the Algonquin tribes who lived in the area of New England and westward to Lake Superior. The Algonquin tribes had perhaps the greatest effect on the early European settlers in America, and the settlers adopted the Native American habit of naming the moons. They even invented some of their own names that have been passed down through time.

The names given below aren’t the only ones that have been used. Every full moon, with one exception, had variations on its name among various Algonquin tribes, not to mention other tribes throughout North America. But the names below are the most common. Some of the variations are also mentioned.

February: The Snow Moon
Snow piles even higher in February, giving this moon its most common name. Among tribes that used this name for the January moon, the February moon was called the Hunger Moon due to the challenging hunting conditions. http://www.moonconnection.com/full-moon-names.phtml

 Can you tell me the full moon names? from EarthSky

For both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, the full moons have names corresponding to the calendar months or the seasons of the year.

Some almanacs like to give each month a special full moon name. Other almanacs like to reference full moons relative to seasonal markers, as defined by equinoxes and solstices. Is one way better than the other? No. Both have their roots in folklore. Of course, both the monthly names and the seasonal names necessarily favor either the Northern or Southern Hemisphere. That’s because the moon has different characteristics in the two hemispheres, at opposite times of year. For example, the Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. So it falls in September or October for the Northern Hemisphere, and it falls in March or April for the Southern Hemisphere.
