First full moon of autumn - Oct 20th 2021

The Hunter's Moon rises tonight, marking the first full moon of the fall season



In many Indigenous traditions, Grandmother Moon was revered as ruling the rhythms of the tides, or the waters - which is the lifeblood of the Earth. She teaches you about intuition and introspection and has a strong connection to the cycles of life.

If we think about the fact that we are mostly water, we can only wonder: “could the moon also be affecting us?” In many Indigenous traditions, water is associated with the emotional body.

At the most simplistic level, we could say the moon is pulling on our emotional centres, and at the new and full moon, its pull is maximized. While the moon’s magnetic effect is not creating a physical movement of water in our bodies (according to science), it could be bringing heightened emotions to surface.
