The 13 Full Moons in 2020

The Full Moon

That Means A Blue Moon 

Every month of the year will see a Full Moon. But Blue Moons, when there’s a 2nd full moon in the same month, do not happen all that often. Maybe once a year, or if you’re lucky twice a year. Our last Blue Moon was on Friday December 13th, 2019. Another auspicious event.

For 2020, we’ll only see one Blue Moon on the calendar. But what a night for it to show up! According to the Farmer’s Almanac Moon Calendar,  October will see it’s first full moon on October 1st. And another on Saturday, October 31st, at 10:49am eastern U.S. time.

In the world of Pagan Metaphysics, we call the observance of the Moon, Esbat days, or Ritual days. These phases are where we combine the energy of the Divine Goddess, in this case in the form of Grandmother Moon, with your own energy, for magikal working. Continue reading

The Full Blood Moon Eclipse of January 2019

The Full Blood Moon

Yes We’ve Covered That

The January 21 total lunar eclipse will be the last one until May 2021, and the last one visible from the United States until 2022. But this full moon is also a “Super Blood Moon” and a lunar eclipse, which makes this month’s full moon so special.

The partial stage of the lunar eclipse begins at 10:34 p.m. EST Sunday night (0334 GMT Monday morning) with the total eclipse beginning at 11:41 p.m. EST (0441 GMT Monday morning). Totality lasts for about an hour, and then the moon will exit. – Read more at Space.com

We’ve covered Full moons, blood moons and even lunar eclipses here on Reflections. So at the risk to not be redundant,  here’s a few links that you might like to peruse as you search for information about this special moon.

May you all have a wonderful Full moon celebration and ritual.

Defining What You Believe

What Do I Believe?
A Student’s 1st Assignment

Before you can begin your spiritual journey; what ever that journey is, you have to know where you’re starting from. What do you believe and how does it relate to your spiritual path? Are you looking for a spiritual path, but don’t know which one fits your current beliefs? How are you going to assess where you are today with where you want to be, or where you’ve come from, if you don’t know what you believe today.

It’s easy to sit down and answer questions off the top of your head when talking with someone about what you believe. You jump from topic to topic and you may not even realize how the subjects are interconnected. You can give one description today and two weeks from now, you’ll have a slightly different description. And you won’t even realize you’ve altered your view or perception.

If you take on this assignment, you’ll see how much that ‘easy to answer’ scenario changes. When you’re writing those answers down, putting thought to paper you are forcing yourself to really think about what you believe. You’ll begin writing an answer to a question you were sure you knew, only to discover that you may not be so sure about it after all. It also forces you to connect the dots. You’ll find that as you’re writing an answer to one question, that might contradict your response to another previous question. And suddenly you have to re-think an entire subject. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Pentacles

Eight of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Spend time mending fences instead of holding onto your anger. Not everyone is to blame for the event you’re mad about. But it sure seems like you’re taking it out on everyone around you. Take a deep breath and allow your inner kindness to show. You’re not the only one who is worried or concerned. So stop pushing others away, when all they really want to do is help.


Additional Insight:

Whither it’s a build up of all the little things, or one big event that has you on pins and needles, you’re not alone. Your actions impact others around you and all they want to do is show you support. They’re not part of the problem, and their not out to get you. So stop taking your anger out on them.

You’re better off keeping to yourself and offering a fake smile, than saying something you shouldn’t or uttering something you wish you hadn’t said. You need to breathe and show some patience. Eight days from now, things are going to be totally different and the decisions that have been made will show their hand. Those making the decisions will see the error of their ways and make necessary, and beneficial changes. But you must wait for them to get to that point on their own.

Just do what you need to do, follow the direction you’ve been given and keep your nose to the grind stone. The work you do now will be noticed, especially if you show the quality in your efforts that benefit everyone.  Use your newly discovered spare time to fill out paperwork, submit requests and follow-up on issues that are more personal in nature. This is your opportunity to complete the tasks that benefit you most. The Divine Universe is providing you this opportunity to improve your situation while you wait. Take advantage of it. You’ll be glad you did.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Chariot

The Chariot

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Ride it out, don’t go in looking for a fight and just watch the drama work itself out. The game isn’t over, but you still have no part to play. Decisions are being made in the shadows that have to face the light of day. There’s no agreements being made, just knee jerk reactions. That alone, will have consequences and you don’t want to be in the way.


Additional Insight:

Today you need to mind your manners and hold your tongue. While some decisions are impacting your ride, they won’t last for very long. Allow the Divine Universe to work its magik as those around you search for answers that bring about the necessary balance. There’s nothing you can do right now, but wait and be patient.

This isn’t the time to panic or make rash decisions. The cart is moving too fast to know which way to turn. If you move too quickly, you could be giving up the security you’ve built up. Just be calm and watch the aftermath relating to the actions already taken. You have plenty of time to do your paper work and prepare for any scenario.

Take advantage of the opportunity to catch up on the things you’ve been putting aside for too long. You already know there are some items on your list that you can do, maybe even things you’ve long needed to do. Stop putting off the fine details and make time to fill out the forms and submit the requests. Even if you stay where you are, those “certifications” will give you some much needed leverage. Make it a priority of your day and get it done.

By evening, don’t count on having any more information than you did this morning. You’re not being kept out of the loop, because no one really knows what’s happening. Even though you still don’t know what all the issues are, allow yourself to relax. The pressure is off your shoulders, even if it’s just for a little while.  Spend some quality time with those you love and don’t worry! It’s going to be ok. You’re not going backwards!

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Cups

Knight Of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be watchful, keep silent and stay out of the fray. A backlash is about to occur and you don’t want to be anywhere near it. Guard your domain, but don’t engage in the fight. It’s not yours to defend, nor is it in your best interest to rebuke. You’ll learn more by remaining silent and if possible, remain hidden.


Additional Insight:

The battle that’s raging around you, has nothing to do with you. The conflict may impact you down the road, but don’t assume that’s a bad thing. Some issues must be hammered out and put to rest in order for you to move forward with your goals. But that doesn’t mean you need to stick your nose in, where it doesn’t belong.

Just sit back and watch. Remain ready in case you need to push the fight back onto the battlefield and away from your personal domain. Don’t allow someone to pull you into the fray with the idea that you’re going to stand up for their side. You might want them to win, but whatever you do, don’t let that get out. A simple “don’t bring me into this” will be sufficient to keep you in neutral territory. Don’t even think you can be the mediator and bring peace to the situation. It’s not your place! 

By evening, you’ll be able to relax and have a better understanding about what’s been going on behind closed doors. Keeping your nose to the grind stone and avoiding the drama, will be noticed by those in charge of the battle. And it will be appreciated. When the “King” comes calling, and only IF you’re asked what would you do, should you give your opinion. Just make sure you do it in private and without pointing fingers at anyone. Don’t tear anyone down, don’t build anyone up too much. And be able to justify your opinion. Otherwise, you’re just another clog in the wheel.
