This morning, we walked out of the house to a symphony of bird song.
The birds were even more loud and numerous when we returned home in the late afternoon.
The March Full Moon is known as the Worm Moonoon because worms are beginning to surface and birds are coming out to feast. The Worm Moon is still 17 days away, but the worms are already starting in Raleigh.
Woke up this morning feeling very well. Despite Witchling being up twice overnight and it being my turn to tend to him, I wasn’t sleepy upon wake.
This morning we went to Rise for breakfast, then to the circus with Hubby’s parents.
I was very impressed with the lack of whips and force put towards the cats. The man had a long stick with a pointy end which he used to scewer meat and feed it to cats upon completion of a trick and an even longer stick with a frayed string at the end.
Witchling took a nap on me for the tail end of the show, as it was nap time and he was ready. The four of us got home and Hubby and I split the kids. He and Witchlette went driving, Witchling and I went to the playground.
Witchling climbed the steps, crawled through the tunnel and made his way to the biggest slide. Twice. Third time he went back and forth through the tunnel. Then, after asking to get down, he walked to the gate and said bye bye home. I asked if he wanted to go for a walk or go home, and he said walk, so we took to the trail.
When I stop for long moments, I still have a tingle. All through the woods, I could feel the vibration.
During our meditation, after connecting with Her and feeling Her presence, I was told, “She has another name. Find her other name.” I did some reading this morning, and I feel I may be onto something. More reading is needed and I will share my discovery.
Today was a hugely Magickal day. Today, I led a CotE class on spell writing and Circle casting with a strong focus on intent and owning one’s own personal power.
Tonight, I believe, is the first of many nights.
As CotE is on night hiatus while we locate our new permanent home. Tonight, a small group of us with whom I have found some kindered spirits gathered for an evening meal then performed a moon ritual invoked Bridget.
There was so much power with us together…I am still tingling with the power for which we were conduits. She who wrote the ritual, did so with beauty and grace. The four of us had a truly joyful time together, before, during, and after our rite.
Next month I am writing the rite and she who wrote this evening will be hosting.
Still tingling with just as much intensity and it’s been three hours.
We started celebrating the Full Moon as a family at dinner a few months ago. Tonight, in honor of the Full Moon, we shared the following blessing:
North, south, east, west
May our Circle now be blessed
We are a Circle within a Circle
With no beginning
And never ending.
With the Moon
Full and round
To the ground
Bless us all
This Magick night
All before us
And not in sight
Bless us all
Far and near
As we gather
So mote it be
<After our meal>
West, south, east, and north
From our Circle
Now go forth
