October Full Moon - Blood Moon  

Posted in

October's Full Moon is known as the Blood Moon. Autumn has arrived and it's making itself known. Already here in Pennsylvania, the leaves are turning colors and falling to the ground. Olivia says "Faeries painted the leaves" - I haven't the heart to explain that during winter, there is not enough light or water for photosynthesis, but I digress. Interestingly enough, some Native Americans call the October Full Moon the Falling Leaf Moon.

Everything about this month and this Full Moon is all about darkness. Dark colors; black, deep purples, and dark blue. Even the gemstones follow this theme; obsidian and amethyst are strongly connected to the Blood Moon.
Correspondences:

  • Colors: Dark blue, black, purples
  • Gemstones: Obsidian, amethyst, tourmaline
  • Trees: Apples and yew
  • Gods: Herne, Apollo, Cernunnos, Mercury
  • Herbs: Apple blossom, pennyroyal, mint family, catnip, Sweet Annie
  • Element: Air
This is the month to really connect with your inner self and your spirituality. With Samhain being this month, it's also a good time to connect with those who have passed on.
