Each month close to the full moon on The Wirral I hold a Moon Circle to share the ancient teachings of the moon; we gather together in a spirit of love and community. Since beginning my circle, other circles have been created in the UK and abroad joining us together in the old ways of honouring the moon.
The moon is full on September 25th in the sign of Aries so we have a lot of fire with this moon but there is also a connection with the planet Saturn; Saturn represents the mother and so we will be blessed by much mothering energy and it is badly needed for everyone at this time of transition.
Here are the teachings for this month’s full moon:
Draw down the light of Sirius taking in the Starlight and radiating it out into the circle.
The essence of this full moon is one of healing deep wounds; the lunar energies provide the perfect opportunity for opening up, releasing and healing. Many people have been experiencing deep releasing within and it is at those times where you need comfort, reassurance and nurturing. The moon is a symbol of the mother and so as we connect to it in its fullness each month we are repeating what many have done in the past over and over again by immersing ourselves in the universal mother love.
The moon brings the light into the darkness which means it shines the light into the deepest part of our subconscious but it also carries within its essence a deeply protective, cosy and all enveloping love.
The teachings with this moon are very simple indeed and within their simplicity is included the most profound healing and supportive energy. These teachings are more about being immersed in the vibrations and allowing them to completely enfold you so that you experience the purest transmission of love and reassurance.
You are to receive the highest vibration of divine unified love which comes from the moon, your mother and this is all about expanding in consciousness into the unified field where there is only love and light. Play some music for this experience for there are few words to say with it, there is only a deep connection to what is being transmitted.
Choose a piece of music to play which touches you so deeply, music which moves you. It can be anything at all, it can be a goddess chant, classical music, what ever touches you. Choose a piece of music which lasts about eight or 10 minutes. Here is a link to the music I am going to play because this moves me:
Draw down the light of this full moon and fill every part of your inner self shining the light with this wonderful luminosity. Allow that light to radiate outwards to create a gown of moonlight.
As you look up the moon descends from the sky and it envelops you in its radiant light and as it does this it transforms into one of the great mother figures; each individual will receive their own mother figure, one which they connect to. This may be a goddess, the divine mother, mother Mary, Anandamayi Ma, the face of the mother is many.
You are to lie in the arms of your mother in whatever form she comes to you and she will hold you close for you are her divine Child. You will begin playing the music and you will sink into the love of the mother; as you do this your consciousness will begin to expand like never before and the vibration of love within you from your mother’s love will connect you to the universal vibration of divine mother love. All your boundaries will disappear as you dissolve into the unity of love.
The ceremony from this full moon is healing for the world for many cry out for help and the Earth itself mirrors the inner cleansing of the individual as she too releases and purifies herself.
This full moon brings the fire, the essence of Aries and so we have moon fire. Draw down the moonlight and see it as moon fire filling the chalice; say a blessing over the chalice, a blessing for world healing and then drink deeply from it. Take a moment to feel the moon fire within and when it is fully absorbed this fire can now be radiated outwards and spread around the world.
The healing is to be done at the chakra points of the Earth, sacred places which represent seven chakras. Connecting these chakra points is a rainbow serpent and so you will follow the path of the rainbow serpent beginning at the base chakra.
You will all begin a journey around the Earth stopping at sacred places where you will radiate moon fire into the Earth. When this has been completed these places will be repositories for this lunar fire and these chakra points will then radiate much healing and harmonising energy around the whole of mother Earth.
These are the six places to travel to: base chakra-Mount Shasta California, sacral chakra-Lake Titicaca Peru, solar plexus chakra-Uluru Australia, heart chakra and third eye chakra-Glastonbury, Crown chakra-Mount Kailash Tibet. You will notice that Glastonbury contains two chakra points.
The rainbow serpent links all the chakra points around mother Earth and the rainbow serpent is also the energy fire which resides at the base of the spine and just as the rainbow serpent flows around the Earth it also ascends up the body clearing the energetic pathways and chakras.
The serpent is wisdom and when it rises within you it not only clears your pathways of light it also allows your own inner wisdom to be released.
Clothed in your white gown of Aries lunar energy you are taken to a serpent Temple. The doors are carved with serpents and they open wide to allow you to enter within. You can feel the wisdom as soon as you cross the threshold, you can almost touch it.
In the centre of a Temple is a huge tree with its roots in the Earth and its branches leading to heaven. There are priestesses here who guide you to the tree and they ask you to stand with your back to it. The priestesses begin to chant and as they do rainbows of light begin to rise up from the roots of the tree and as they ascend up the trunk these rainbows of light move through you. They move through you clearing and purifying all your energetic pathways and when they reach your Crown as your old energies are pushed out they are transformed into stars and these stars rise up into the sky where they shine so brightly down over mother Earth.
After this healing sit quietly and ground your feet back into the Earth.
The autumn equinox takes place this month, another turn of the wheel of the year. This is the time of harvest and as you connect to the full moon energies you will harvest your own wisdom and share your light far and wide.
May your path always be filled with rainbows,

If you would like to begin a moon circle in your area then I will be happy to pass on information to help you to do this. Although you can run a circle any way you want I send out teachings to all the moon circle teachers each month before the full moon and they can use these if they wish. Your contact details can also be added to the contacts page on the website.
