It is doubtful that we will be able to actually see the Full Moon tonight. Obscured by clouds and snowfall most likely. Last night, I looked up into the night sky and there was a blurry, half-glowing shape up there. I assumed it was the Moon. But whether or not the Lovely Lunar Lady is a-sail for us to see, we can certainly feel her Presence.
Just as the moon affects the ocean tides, Wiccans "attune" to this energy, depending on the phase, to work spells, rituals and other tasks. Full Moons are a perfect time to charge tools such as crystals, wands, athames, spring water, candles, the list goes on. Charging simply means infusing power into an object using the Moon's energies. Wiccans are aware and awed by the energies that exist in Nature and learn how to utilize these energies to achieve a goal/result/change. This is primarily the definition of Natural Magick: directing energies to cause a change.
Each phase of the Moon offers energies for specific tasks. Waning or waxing, New Moon, Dark Moon, Full Moon. There are many books that will help the magickal practitioner learn more, but also, it is important to recognize one's own intuitions. Books are terrific guides, practice is the key.
Esbat is the term Wiccans use for the Full Moon ritual/observance. One can have a simple candle meditation or a formal ritual. Working as a Solitary Practitioner of Wicca, I can decide for myself how I wish to honor the Full Moon and the Goddess.
Full Moon magick is a beautiful way to connect with Nature, the Universe and deity.
How will you observe the Full Moon tonight?
