Preparing For The Full Moon



This month, the full Moon will reach peak illumination on two nights: Sunday, October 9 and Monday, October 10 (though you can start admiring her as early as Saturday).
What’s more, this October’s full Moon brings a Hunter’s Moon, a brilliant orange-hued Moon that appears larger for around 15 minutes.
Hunter’s Moon is the name given to the first full Moon after the Harvest Moon, which occurs nearest to the date of the autumnal equinox.
This year, the equinox fell on September 22, making October’s full Moon a Hunter’s Moon. Other names for the Hunter’s Moon are the Sanguine or Blood Moon, referencing the time of year after farmers have cleared their fields and hunters could easily spot animals fattening up ahead of the winter.
The best time to view this celestial event will be just after sunset on Sunday, October 9, 2022. That’s when it will be possible to see the Moon appear on the horizon during twilight, with the surrounding trees and buildings giving the perspective that it’s much bigger than it really is.
The common spiritual meaning of the hunter’s moon prepares us for change.
It opens our eyes to see the power and benefits of embracing change.
The hunter’s moon is the link between summer and winter. Anytime it shows up in the sky, it reveals that winter is coming.
In the same way, the hunter’s moon has come to reveal that a major change is about to happen in our lives.
Therefore, we need to be prepared for it.
