I am so grateful for the connection that I have with the moon, with my ancestors and the gods.
My connection is deep and very magickal.
This Full Moon was a powerful one for me.
As usual, every Full Moon, I join my tribe at the beach to dance and drum as the moon rises.
This Full Moon, before the darkness arrived I walked to the oceans edge to give thanks to one particular Goddess.
I have been working with Aphrodite for most of last year, asking her assistance to allow my heart to open to love.
Late last year, Septembers Full Moon, the gods showed me that this was a possibility and I opened my heart to a man.
It was beautiful and confronting all at the same time.
It was a whirlwind few months with the Ancestors completely throwing me out out my comfort zone with everything moving along so quickly.
Although it did not work out, destined that we would not be together, I was shown that I could in fact open my heart and allow love into my life.
Yes, I was very sad that this relationship did not continue, heartbroken you could say. I was sad that our paths changed, and it was not destined to work and within that sadness I got angry with the Ancestors for putting me in this position of heartache. "They know how fragile I am in the arena of love", I thought, "they have been with me on my life's journey every step of the way, why would they do this?' but I did not sit in that energy for long.
After many years of my heart being closed off to love, I realise that this is a possibility for me.
So this Full Moon, I walked to the oceans edge with love in my heart and gave an offering of dried Rose Petals from the roses that adorned my altar at Beltane.
I gave thanks to the Gods for meeting him, for bringing him into my life, allowing the deep connection to manifest so quickly therefore showing me that I could open my heart.
Showing me that I can make room within my home, my heart and life for love.
For that I am very grateful.
For lessons I have learnt within those few months that we spent together.
For finding my voice, for stepping outside my comfort zone, for showing me what I actually want within a relationship, for pushing through my fears and allowing me to be vulnerable.
As I stood at the oceans edge I connected with Aphrodite sending her my energy and deep gratitude.
Knowing that this experience has bought me that much closer to finding my love.
Finding my twin flame.
My Anam Cara
I remind you that on the Full Moon, it is important for you to give thanks and extend your gratitude to the gods for all that you have and all the magick that has, or has not manifested.
To thank them for their assistance. You cannot always ask, ask, ask without giving back to them. It is just rude and disrespectful.
Our magick is not always about spell work, it is about connection. The balance of giving and receiving.
You must take the time to just honour and give thanks.
