You name it…..this moon did it huh?
Moon Magic is wonderful at the best of times weather its harnessing the potent power of yesterdays ‘Mega Moon’ or using the waxing moon to bring things in…or releasing ‘stuff’ at New Moons as it wanes away…there’s plenty that can be done. With this Full Moon being on the threshold of Imbolc I did a bit of everything. I did a bit of Kitchen Witchcraft, baking up nourishing goodies at the Community Cafe I work at part time; I did a bit of Hearth Fire Magic releasing my unwanted shit into the flames; my daughter and I sowed our seeds for the coming year into Witch Bottles and I placed my beautiful Moon Bowl out under the ‘Mega Moon’ to create a Swan Moon Essence and Tincture…as well as creating the beautiful Swan Moon Mala, pictured above. Yes I was a busy girl.
The Swan Moon Mala brings with it the rejuvenating spark and effervescent inspiring energy of this quickening moon. It’s also has that very gentle healing energy that the swan carries upon her wings at this time of year. Its created with the same blue and black glass beads, plus the full moon-y opalite, that all these Luna Malas will have as a common thread, but the differing intentions and energies are woven and knotted through each one on their specific moons and are reflected in their tassels and charms, this Swan Moon Mala having a white tassel and swan feather charm.
Swan Moon – January 31st Full/Blue Moon
Other names for this Full Moon include Storm Moon, Tree Moon or Icicle Moon. For me I call this ‘Swan Moon’ as its also Luna Imbolc, so drawing on the many aspects and associations of Brigid I always feel a very strong Swan energy with this moon.
Its the perfect time to ‘sow’ your hopes, dreams and wishes for the coming year, I do this by creating a Witch Bottle every Imbolc, but you can just as well create vision or dream boards. Think about sowing and plant seeds in your garden or greenhouse…plant some pennies in with them too, as you sow your seeds, nurture them and watch your abundance grow!
Hope you all had a wonderful Full ‘Mega’ Moon and Imbolc Blessings as we start our dance with the Maiden. Get planting those seeds xxx
