The outdoor Wicca & Witchcraft monthly FULL MOON  Open  Rituals (in London Woods) are re-starting again!    These Wicca Full moon Rituals are ideal for anyone new and interested to Wicca. We will use the ritual format.. This one in August 2013 is an astrological Blue-Moon.. Magical! (that is the 2nd full moon in the same sun-sign..ie Aquarius!).

Key facilitator: Mani Navasothy, Initiated Wiccan High Priest, with over 18 yrs of Wicca, Craft & Coven experiences in one of the key lineages in the UK.

RITUAL FORMAT

-Preparing space & setting up Altar.
-Run-through (quick explaining of ritual and what’s involved)

Then..

-Meditative energy work (chakra or other)

* Facilitators will be happy to answer your questions…after the ritual.

* Sharing of what you experienced is encouraged during social time.

* We ask you keep gossip & political / controversial chit-chats outside of these magical events.. ! Pub moots are good for those kind of chats…not these full moon rituals.

TRAINING Opportunity:
If you attend a few times, you will quickly become familiar with practical format & words.. And after a few visits, you can volunteer to take some of the roles at subsequent rituals.. When that happens, facilitators can help you prepare ..

ROBES:
-Facilitators will be putting on their Robes for the ritual.
-If you have any robes, or ritual cloths (outdoors!) please bring them.
-We will have a few spare robes for new comers to borrow at the event..

PRINT-OUT:
We will provide a print out of words / ritual outline .. It is advised that you browse through it, and follow it during run-through..but put it away and watch/ participate in the actual ritual.. Then you can take the print out home and re-read it and fill gaps from memory. This is the best experiential way to learn Wicca!!

Astro-Blue Moon coming up (August 2013)

Astro-BlueMoon - 21August2013 (c) Mani Navasothy Astrologer
Astro-BlueMoon – 21August2013 (c) Mani Navasothy Astrologer

Blue moon is `traditionally’ the second full moon in the same calendar month!  What’s an astro Blue moon?   Well, that is what I consider to be a true blue moon!  It happens when there are two consecutive full moons in the same astrological (sun) sign!

I give this more importance, because Calendar months are too arbitary. Depending on when you start to count the dates, a calendar month can vary.  Indeed most religions of the world have their own calendars. Even the modern western calendar has been chopped, changed, dates added, reduced and adjusted by various Kings/ Emperors of the past (Julian calendar, Gregorian calendar and so on).

Data

We are about to have 2 full moons in the same sign!

  • Full Moon on 22nd July 2013 – at 0’06” Aquarius.
  • Full moon on  21st August 2013 – at 28’11” Aquarius.

So you see, 2 consecutive full moons in the sign of Aquarius ..!    By this approach, the 2nd full moon – 21st August’13 – is an Astro-BlueMoon!

Magical

This has more magical significance.. because a) people of that Zodiac sign get 2 full moons in one year (normally we all get one full moon in our own signs).  People not of that particular zodiac sign van also take a big advantage of this astro-opportunity!  For example, if you like to do some magic that relates to a certain aquarius quality, or want to work magically on the `house’ where this sign encompasses,  you get 2 opportunities.

You can either do the same magical work twice…or start magical work on the first full moon of this sequence, and conclude it at the 2nd one.

Note: to make use of this magically, you must start  the magical or esoteric work on 22nd July’13, and conclude/ repeat it a month later on 21st August’13.

Good luck!

–Mani Navasothy (astro-mage!)
