Mourning Moon

There was a beautiful full moon this weekend and I took this blurry picture late at night on my way home from a great party. I then remembered to turn on the flash to get a sharper result (see below). In retrospect, I think the unfocused and shaky image looks a bit more magical.

This month's full moon is sometimes called the Mourning Moon as November is a traditional time to grieve for that which has gone, before entering into the festive season of Yule.

Below is a link to a lovely Mourning Moon ritual - the kind of thing a witch should be doing on the night of the full moon rather than going out partying:
