Us humans have always had a fascination with the movement of the heavenly bodies. The sun around the earth. The stars in the sky. The moon in the night.
Ah the moon… There’s something very feminine, very female about the moon. It’s regular cycle closely matches that most female of biological cycles, for a start. And then there’s the fact it changes shape, like a pregnant woman does.
The moon cycle is important to Wicca. It was and is important to a lot of religions down through the ages, likely more than many people realise. Especially those who are Christian by upbringing or simply a-religious.
I will be going to my first Full Moon Circle tomorrow night. It should be interesting, to say the least!
