Three Muses--Hunter's moon

So many of us have heard of the harvest moon, and many celebrate it around the world in various celebrations and parties. It is readily heralded as one of the most brilliant full moons of the year. But there is one that holds as much significance as this but is shrouded in myth.

The Hunter’s Moon. Also called the Blood Moon, because of the orange-red glow it has due to the elevation of rise in the late autumn atmosphere. Harvest moon falls the first full moon closest to the fall equinox and hunters moon is the next full moon after, usually falling in October, and rarely in November. Most of the full moon’s names are from Native American Myths and lore. Hunters moon was named as it signified a time of easy hunting, even deep into the night to prepare for the long winter ahead. .

Our Wiccan friends call this the Shedding moon or the Falling Leaf moon. It hold great reverence to many on a spiritual journey. Many believe that the veils between worlds are the thinnest on this night. Pay close attention to all visions, and messages received at this time.

Those wishing to contact loved ones may wish to do so on this night as the bridge between worlds is easiest to cross.
