Wolf Full Moon

10° Leo 15’ at 1:18 AM

This Full Moon is a “Perigee Full Moon,” which makes it one of the biggest and brightest Full Moons of the year and highlights the archetype of Leo – the King, the Lion, the power of will, and the quest for integrity. Leo calls on each of us to shine our light, our individual essence. This is a special opportunity to “get ourselves together,” to figure out who we are and where we stand, and to express ourselves. Leo loves to perform, so create a ritual that support and encourage you to live your own truth. Have fun!

This Full Wolf Moon in Leo conjunct Mars retrograde. Mars stimulates our ability to respond to life with creative assertive action.  Mars is moving backward to reclaim of sense of that self-directedness and self-expression. This is a perfect time to take a break from your daily soap opera drama and consider a new plot twist. This is a good time to be aware of the actions you need to take.

Sabian Symbol for 10-11 Leo: Children on a swing in a huge oak tree. Focus what does this symbol say to you? 

Full Moon in Leo which rules:

Because Leo resides in the 5th house of the zodiac and is ruled by our Sun, our life force, ego, ideal, our future, children, creativity, romance, pleasures, enjoyment, fun, sports of all kinds, games, arts, leisure, activity, energy, creativity, entertainment, holidays, romance, love affairs (the type that may or may not lead on to seventh house matters), gambling, speculation, financial risks, stocks and investments are most important to Leo.

Question to ask yourself at this Full Moon in Leo:

·        As a child, what was I most passionate about?

·        Are you happy?

·        Are you having fun

·        What do I want to create in my life?

·        How do I sabotage myself?

·        What can I create with my passionate nature that gives me joy?

·        And more important how do I share this heart expression with the world?

·        What opens my heart?

So what to do on this full moon:

  • Replay the movie of your life, watching for the lines you missed, the scenes you’d like to retake. It’s never too late to do what you want to do. Who told you that you couldn’t draw, sing, or fly? What stops you from doing it now? 
  • Express yourself – scribble with crayons, sing, dance, paint, dress up!

·        Makeover the Hairdo – try something new: Get a new cut, add some highlights, change your hair color. If you’ve got long hair, toss it big time. If your hair is short work on your inner toss!

·        Go to a party or, better yet, throw a party

·        Go to the theatre  

·        Work on your posture

·        Open your heart

·        Wear dramatic and expressive clothes.

·        Angel to work with: Adnachiel the Angel of Independence to help you find and build up your inner and outer freedom.

o       Affirmation: My individual freedom and independence stimulate my confidence and happiness. 

Shamanic Journey Idea: Remember that the effects of a Full Moon are more emotional and directed inward, so Journey to the Upper World and ask your teachers to help you to be aware of the actions you need to take to create the life you want.

 Feng Shui tips for this Full Moon:

·        Check and repair all fire related issues inside and outside your home like the stove, oven, all electrical outlets and appliances, outdoor BBQ’s.

·        Check your bedroom (represents the “love/relationship” section of your house) and the Relationship area gua – which is in the rear right section of your home if you would like to attract a love relationship or improve your relationship with yourself.

·        Some suggestion:

o       Replace Images of Lone Figures With Pictures of Happy Couples

o       Treat Yourself to Sensual Bedding

o       Pull Your Bed Away From the Wall

o       If you are single, clear out one of your dresser drawers and leave some empty hangers in the closet to make space for a new relationship in your life.

 Remember that life is the ultimate adventure and a continual blessing. It’s time for you to explore, discover, walk your truth and live your gratitude in each present moment.

 Full Moon Purging

  •  Cleanse your sacred area with an opening prayer, a sage smudging, and/or by burning some incense. Invite your guides, angels, masters, or teachers to be at your side throughout the ceremony.
  • Light one or more candles. Look to the skies. Breathe in the night air.
  • One by one, read out loud the words you have written on each slip of paper. Set your intention to release the item/addiction/attitude from your life. Set it to fire and place it in the calderon. If you have a campsite barbecue or bonfire going that’s cool, just toss the slips of paper into the fire one by one. If you are doing this ritual with a group of others take turns reading your words. If these things are too personal to read out loud, read them silently to yourself. Just remember… our words have power. Saying – “Be Gone” audibly and loudly can be very freeing. Go ahead, howl at the moon if you’ve a mind to. Have some fun!
  • Thank the spirits. Be safe. Put out the fire.

11°Aries 10 

“When the moon is full, mankind is one!”

The Full Moon at 11degrees 10 minutes Aries on October 4 at 2:10 a.m. EDT follows the Autumn Equinox on September 22nd. Its Native American name is Harvest Moon, and because the Moon rises this time of year near sunset, it was used as an early evening light to pick the autumn crops of corn, pumpkins, squash, wild rice and beans.

 This Full Moon will intensify your feelings of independence and the desire to start something new is highlighted. New ideas or intuitive flashes of insight are possible. Intuition and creativity may be heightened, and personality, temperament, disposition, anger, physical appearance and individuality will be issues.

 Parts of the body ruled by Aries include the eyes, head, nose, mouth, ears, forehead and brain. Its ruling planet, Mars governs the blood, muscles, and the adrenal glands. It rules headaches, migraines, vertigo, inflammation, eye afflictions, neuralgia of the head and face, high fevers, skin eruptions, nervous exhaustion, sinus troubles, hyperactivity, strokes, delirium, brain damage, concussion, head accidents, and insomnia.

The Angel of October
 October’s angel teaches us that the greatest fruit of our personal harvest is understanding ourselves.

Shamanic Feng Shui:

  •  Check the Family Gua – it is the middle left side of your home. This area is about self esteem, solid foundations and supports your financial obligations. This area is about nurturing and growth. You might want to p ut a beautiful healthy green plant here.
  •  Next check your Children and Creativity Gua – It is the middle right section of your home. Since this is the place for future projects and new ideas make a collage of the things you value and put it in this area.

This Full Moon Affirmation:
“I trust my instincts to act. I know that as a creation of Spirit, I am a worthy and intelligent person, so my actions are automatically beneficial to myself and others.”

Celebrate this Full Moon:

  •  Get plenty of exercise, especially activities that connect you with the Earth like walking, running, hiking and swimming.
  • Journal information that comes in dreams and meditation. You’re likely to receive messages from the subconscious and ascended realms during the eclipse period that will help you on your evolutionary path.
  • Work with affirmations and intentions about how you choose to be, grow and transform during this period. Intention work is especially powerful during eclipse alignment periods.

The Moon Festival for year 2009 is October 03, 2009 

In China and throughout many Asian countries people celebrate the Harvest Moon on the 15th day of the eighth month of their lunar calendar. The date in the Western calendar changes yearly. This year, it falls on Saturday, October 3, 2009.

 The Harvest Moon or Mid-Autumn Festival (Zhong Qiu Jie) is a day of family reunions much like a Western Thanksgiving. Chinese people believe that on that day, the moon is the roundest and brightest signaling a time of completeness and abundance.

     During the Mid-Autumn Festival, children are delighted to stay up past midnight, parading multi-colored lanterns into the wee hours as families take to the streets to moon-gaze.

 It is also a romantic night for lovers, who sit holding hands on hilltops, riverbanks and park benches, captivated by the brightest moon of the year!

Traditional foods for a Chinese Mid-Autumn feast are red — for good luck. Lobster and salmon are particular favorites along with apples, pomegranates, roasted peanuts, pomelo, chestnuts, fatt koh (sponge cakes) and moon cakes.

Full Moon in Pisces



Full Moon in Pisces
Friday, September 4, 2009
12:03 PM Eastern Time

This Pisces Full Moon is a portal to our higher mind and our higher conscience. This planetary energy is providing us the help we need to release long-standing patterns. Full Moon in Pisces can be a bit dreamy, so use this full moon’s energy to execute the discipline of meditation and embody the positive spectrum of Pisces: Enlightenment!

 Key Phrase: I BELIEVE or I MERGE

 Pisces is a mutable (adaptable) sign and is ruled by the planet Neptune. Pisces is the need to dissolve, to shape-shift and become one with a larger truth.

 Positive: adaptable, artistic, careless, compassionate, deep, dreamy, easily-led, selfless, sensitive, happy, humorous, hypersensitive, idealistic, imaginative, ingenious,  intuitive, inventive, kind, loving, mystery,  open, poetic, prophetic, receptive, spiritual, visionary, Sensitive deep dreamers, understanding, Cares for needy people, Spiritual, mystical, psychic, Romantic, artistic, poetic

Negative: secretive, self-sacrificing, confused, deceitful,   hopeless, immoral, impractical, impressionable, indecisive,  spiteful, escapism, greedy,  unworldly, vague, deceptive,  weak-willed, wild, misdirected, misunderstood, woolly, intangible, intoxicated,  Escape by fantasy ,Withdraws into isolation, Introverted, retiring, shy, pathetic, Suffering, personal sacrifice, Addictions, Savior-Victim games


Do I spend most of my time grabbing and craving for more things; trying to fill your inner emptiness with a multitude of possessions?

  • What can I freely give away?
  • What can I share?
  • What do I feel passionate about?
  • What leaves me with a feeling of excitement?
  • Do I fully embody this vibration?
  • How do I share it with others?
  • How does the world see me?

 Celebrate this Full Moon:

  •  Go out and allow the energy of this big, beautiful Moon to energize your prayers and intentions.  Create a ceremony of healing and thanksgiving. Honor all those who help you (in every dimension). 
  • Rradiate peace and calm through group prayer and meditation and ritual.
  • Get a massage or Reiki treatment.
  • Use this time of diverse feelings to learn more about yourself and your rhythms and hopefully grow from them.
  • Sit by the light of the Full Moon give thanks and express gratefulness for your blessings.

 Shamanic Feng Shui Tip:

  •  Take an Epson salt or sea salt bath to clean your aura. Add rose quartz (for self-love) and amethyst (which clears negativity and clear away toxins) to your bath water.
  • Clear out your space, your personal space. Use sage, sprays, singing bowl or tingsha bells.
  • Clean your closet! I’m talking about taking the time to go through your clothes and throw out or donate all the things that you haven’t used and probably didn’t even know you had (Pisces is about all the things you stuff in the closet and don’t want to deal with).
  • Go into all your junk draws (your hidden madness) and ORGANIZE them. This is a good way to reflect and stay out of trouble.
  • Use blue candles to release.

 Shamanic journey: journey to the upper world to thank and honor your guides and teacher.

 Affirmation for Pisces:  I dream magical and sublime dreams.

Remember that life is the ultimate adventure and a continual blessing. It’s time for you to explore, discover, walk your truth and live your gratitude in each present moment.
