Full Hunter's Moon
Merry Meet :)) Tonight is the night of the Full Hunter's Moon. It is the night when the veil between the worlds is at it's thinnest. It's the full moon that is closest to Samhain. Tonight is a night of spiritual growth. It's easiest for you to communicate with those who have gone before you. If you have a loved one on the other side, tonight is the best night to try to contact them or leave them an offering.
You can probably feel the shift in the energy of the world around you. The air is getting very crisp, and the nights are getting longer as we transition with the turn of the Wheel of the Year. Tonight's moon is also known as the Blood Moon, Shedding Moon, or Falling Leaf Moon among other names. The Full Hunter's Moon is Native American in it's name origin. It's pretty easy to see why they would've named it this way. It's the time when they needed to start hunting to get their storage ready for the long winter ahead. As all the leaves are almost off the trees now, it also makes it easier to see the animals in the woods. Historically this is an important day of feasting in Europe and among many Native American tribes.
Tonight is a very strong night to work with your animal totems and guides. If you are looking to discover your animal spirit guide, tonight is the perfect night to do so. It's a very powerful night for divination as well.
