Full Moon Names

Historically, the Native Americans who lived in the area that is now the northern and eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full Moons.

Each full Moon name was applied to the entire month in which it occurred. These names, and some variations, were used by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior.

Link on the names below for yourmonthly Full Moon Guide!

Month Name Description

Moons and MagicK

Magick and Lunar Phases

The phases of the moon are said to have a definite influence on your magickal purpose, so that it is important to choose the proper type of magick in relationship to that phase. Basically magick can be broken down into two distinct categories, drawing and banishing. During the waxing moon, we generally concentrate on drawing what we want towards us. During the waning moon, we should work towards banishing whatever it is that we want to get rid of.

For instance, if someone becomes ill during the waxing moon, work to draw health to that person rather than banishing the illness. And say, for example, that the situation calls for a money spell during the time of the waning moon, work towards banishing poverty instead of drawing money towards you...

Animal Symbolism of the Turtle

Turtle Meanings and Totem/Animal Symbolism of the Turtle

Those with the turtle as their animal totem can relate to the “sure and steady” message this creature brings to our lives.

It is also a powerful totem for protection as withdrawing into it’s shell is an amazing self-defense mechanism.

The turtle has few predators, which gives it an innocent energy. This also increases its lifespan, and so holds the symbolic meaning for longevity in many cultures.

Animal symbolism of the turtle includes:

Order
Creation
Patience
Strength
Stability
Longevity
Innocence
Endurance
Protection


Because of its seemingly wide-eyed, long-lived, carefree attitude the turtle is often thought to be the wisest of souls among the animal kingdom...

Animal Symbolism of the Octopus


Octopus Meaning and Symbolism

Diverse and impressive, octopus animal symbolism requires years of exploration and demands innumerable pages of symbolic explanation.

Truth be known, I’ve got a soft spot for the octopus. She’s come to me on several occasions, imparting much needed and (to me) sacred insight.

The following bulletpoints and paragraphs detail some of these insights on a symbolic, spiritual, energetic level. Because of her endless attributes, I’ve provided only a few areas of contemplation here (I was serious about the octopus deserving a book for all her implications in my blog post on the octopus here).

A quick-list of octopus animal symbolism includes attributes such as…

Will
Focus
Magic
Reason
Illusion
Defense
Mystery
Strategic
Potential
Knowing
Diversity
Creativity

Animal Symbolism of the Deer

Deer Symbolism

When we encounter the deer in the wild, our breath catches – we are transfixed by their graceful features and delicate movements. The tender beauty of these beasts has not gone unnoticed by our ancestors.

The deer is linked to the arts, specifically poetry and music in ancient Celtic animal lore due to its graceful form. The Celts also believed that deer were associated with the fairie realm, and would lead troops of fairies – hundreds of them trailing behind them as the stag cut a path through the forest.

Both Celts and Native Americans observed the deer to be savvy when it came to finding the best herbs. These earth-bound peoples would follow the deer to prime herb patches – many of which proved to be highly beneficial in their medicinal purposes.

A quick-list of a...
