Tonight the moon will be dark, halfway between the two full moons of October–on October 1 and on Halloween! And we are also moving into the dark time of the year. As the nights are lengthening, the upcoming Halloween holiday will mark the halfway point between autumn equinox and winter solstice. Each year I look forward to this change of the seasons and the call to focus inward. Do you feel the pull too?
In the Wise Woman Tradition we embrace the spiral of both dark and light. The dark moon and the dark season of the year invite us to go inward, to rest, and to reflect. I savor the long dark nights of winter, gazing at starry skies, and cozying up under blankets.
