This full moon is commonly known as the Long Nights full moon because it is the time of the year in which the nights are the longest. As we grow closer to the Winter solstice and the the night will once again grow shorter. During this time of darkness it is a good time to evaluate the past year and leave the dark times behind you. There is a very simple ritual that you can perform to ofcu on purification and trust of what is to come. I found it in the Witches’ Datebook 2014 and it is by James Kambos and it goes as follows:

“Cover your altar with a white cloth, representing a future shrouded in mystery. Honor the Moon by lighting one white candle. Before the candle, lay one pine branch. Meditate about this past year and what your hopes are for the next year. In an act of purification, brush yourself with the pine branch from head to toe and say:

During this, the darkest time of the year,

Long Nights Moon keep me safe and free from fear.

I trust in the future, I trust fate,

I trust in the Divine Spirit and whatever awaits.”

Chiron is known as the Wounded Healer of the celestial bodies. Chiron is having a big impact during this full moon and so it brings with it great energy that we can use to do works to release emotional and address outstanding healing issues. This full moon is in Gemini which means that generally works that are related to communication, self -expression, the way we connect to the community, Throat Chakra balancing and travel are good to do during this time. You can also focus this moon for physical healing ritual for ailments of the shoulder, arms, hands or lungs.

As for me and my works, since Gemini is influenced by Chiron I think I will focus my intentions on healing my emotional self, maybe I will do a shamanic journey to get a ritual that I can perform to better my relationship with the community I am part of and to seek healing for any emotional hurts that I have been burying deep down below that involves others within my community. Our world is changing and it is at a fragile crucial state. We need to be agents of change and we need to bring tolerance, love and compassion into our works and our communities. The better the emotional, mental and physical state we are personally in, the better we can serve and support our community.

Many blessings to you and happy magical workings!
