This year’s blue moon will be shining bright on August 31st. The blue moon happens once each year, when two full moons occur in one month. This second full moon, or “blue moon” is the thirteenth moon of each year, named after the Clan Mother “Becomes Her Vision.” As her name implies, Becomes Her Vision is the keeper of all cycles of transformation, and is the mother of change. She follows on the heels of She Who Heals, the guardian of the eighth moon cycle, and the mother of all the healing arts, herbalism, midwifery, spirit healing, and of the life-death mysteries.
How wonderful this year that August contains two such perfect, complementary moons? Healing and Vision—is there a more powerful duo you can think of?
Normally, I hold my prayer ceremonies on the new moons of each cycle, but I failed in my duties this month. Luckily, I have the opportunity to pray for two moon cycles in this one month, so I’ll honor the full moons this particular “blue” month.
If you have any prayers you would like to send my way, especially those for healing, transformation, and new vision, please send them to me by next Friday, the full moon. It should be a very special night, and I hope that the sky is clear so that I can see Becomes Her Vision’s shining face through the pipe smoke.
