October Full Moon: The Full Blood Moon

October Full Moon: The Full Blood Moon

16 Comments

The full moon for the month of October is the blood moon.

This is the full moon that leads up to Samhain, so you can bet that it’s highly charged and carries with it super duper strong vibrational energies.

For this reason, witches cast spells, perform rituals, and host dumb suppers around this time.

With the arrival of the blood moon, you can recharge your tools just in time for Samhain for all the spell casting you will do on that night.

The blood moon is also known as the:

  • Hunter’s Moon
  • Falling Leaf Moon
  • Shedding Moon
  •  

    History

    For our ancestors, this was the Hunter’s Moon - named after the hunting season which is right about this time.  

    They would hunt this time and store and preserve as much as they can for the coming Yule. Our ancestors would be stocking up on provisions and planning for the winter to ensure their survival.

    The darker and colder nights are a serious matter for our ancestors. It is a matter of life and death.

    If they fail to plan accordingly for the colder months, themselves and their families could freeze or starve to death.

    Blood Moon Magick

    Despite its bloody name, the full moon for October is an ideal time for spells that promote courage, boldness, fierceness, and self-assurance.

    It’s time for magick to give you the confidence and self-belief that will make you try new things, learn new things, and grab opportunities that you’ve felt are a little out of your league.

    You can do as your ancestors did and prepare for Yule by making sure you stock up on the best thoughts, ideas, and hobbies so that when you emerge from Yule, you are much better than you were before the season.

    Figure out how you’re going to continue casting your spells during winter. Stock up on smudge sticks, incense sticks, herbs, candles, etc.

    You will be spending much more time indoors when during the colder months and the best thing you can do is to engage in worthwhile thinking and activities and magick.

    Offering to Ancestors

    Being that it’s the full moon before Samhain, you may want to offer a little ritual to honor your ancestors.

    Learn about your family members who have long passed.

    Decorate your altar with symbols of ancestors and Samhain, as well as with items that help you connect to your ancestors who have passed. 

    Also, don’t forget to honor your living family. Have dinner together and spend as much time as you can. You can even have a ritual together.

    Samhain is the time when the veil between our world and the spirit world are at its thinnest. Use this time wisely. 

    These are your magickal correspondences for this Month:

    Colors: Dark blue, black, purple
    Gemstones: Obsidian, amethyst, tourmaline
    Trees: Apples and yew
    Deities: Herne, Apollo, Cernunnos, Mercury
