Each month close to the full moon on The Wirral I hold a Moon Circle to share the ancient teachings of the moon; we gather together in a spirit of love and community. Since beginning my circle, other circles have been created in the UK and abroad joining us together in the old ways of honouring the moon.
The moon is full on July 9th in the sign of Capricorn and Capricorn is the mountain goat, that great tenacious animal who can accomplish many things. The mountain goat does not let anything stand in its way as it climbs up often nearly vertical rock. We too can be like the mountain goat as we surmount all the obstacles which life brings to us and as you know these are our teachings.
Life is filled with teachings and the spiritual path becomes narrower the further you travel along it, it does not become easier. In the early days you lived more upon the surface but when you get to a certain stage you have to delve deep into the recesses of your mind and your being and it is there where you will find your true authentic self and it is this which is the goal of our journey.
This path can feel lonely at times especially if you do not have many others to share it with so it becomes even more important that you share even more of yourself with those who are on this same journey with you.
We need others to share our problems with and we need others to discuss spiritual matters with for we cannot speak of those things which are in our hearts to everyone whom we know, they would indeed think that we are very strange. To nurture one another is so important and sometimes we think we have to be strong, the spiritual warrior and although we need to be the warrior we can let our defences down in the presence of those in our spiritual circle.
The essence of this full moon is filled with nurturing, it is completely about nurturing and this is something we must remember time and time again to give to ourselves and to share amongst those around us. The teachings coming from this moon are for you, to nurture you and to let you know that you are safe and always looked after.
Here are the teachings for this month’s full moon:
Draw down the light of Sirius into your Crown filling up with the Starlight and radiating it out into the circle around you.
Have a chalice ready or a glass will do.
Hold the chalice up into the air and draw down the light of the full moon into it, then manifest from your hands chocolate which you blend with the moonlight. Chocolate is so sacred and it is the essence of nurturing and even the brown colour of it brings nurturing. You may even wish to use actual chocolate as part of this ceremony.
Bless the contents of the chalice and then drink from it filling up with this heavenly drink allowing the mix to fill you in body, mind and spirit. Take a moment to feel the combined esssence of the moonlight and chocolate completely immerse you in its nurturing love.
As you fill up with a great sense of being looked after you find yourself transported out into the universe and as you look towards the stars two great hands reach out and take hold of you. These are the hands and the arms of the light of the cosmos and you are then held in an embrace the like of which you have never felt before and you know that you are safe and cared for.
In this moment you do not doubt that you are truly looked after. You then see before you a door opening amongst the stars and the light takes you to the door which you step through. As you reach the other side there waiting for you are your relatives and loved ones who have already passed over. They tell you that they are so grateful for this opportunity to show you how much they care and how much they are always there if you need them. They lead you forward into the most beautiful scene and all you can feel is safety and light. You are pampered and looked after and taken care of. You are given cups of tea and cake just as you would if you were entertained by your relatives upon the Earth.
This is your time, time for you to understand completely how looked after and nurtured you really are.
Before you there manifests a huge clear crystal and it brings light and understanding and clarity to you. You take a piece of the crystal and hold it in your hands allowing it to travel up your arms and into your heart. You then ask any questions which you may have and you will receive your answers. Return to the crystal any time you need guidance.
Manifest a roaring fire either outside in nature or in a cosy cottage kitchen. You are accompanied by cats and by dogs for our domestic friends provide such wonderful nurturing. You begin to sing a beautiful song and you drift off into a state of complete nurturing.
Your heart will open with these simple journeys so may your heart be blessed by much self nurturing and may you also be blessed too by spiritual companions to ease your way as you travel upon this sacred path.
With love Margaret

If you would like to begin a moon circle in your area then I will be happy to pass on information to help you to do this. Although you can run a circle any way you want I send out teachings to all the moon circle teachers each month before the full moon and they can use these if they wish. Your contact details can also be added to the contacts page on the website.
If you are interested in beginning your own circle then please get in touch with me at: [email protected]
