THE GODDESS ALMANAC: Grateful Moon

image credit: TAO OKAMOTO

Tonight's full moon in Gemini is an extra special blessing, as it arrives just before the holiday of 'Thanksgiving' for those of us living in the United States. A beloved holiday with bitter roots that grow deep in our nation's soil, it reminds us of a shameful time in our history - but has evolved to become a time of giving thanks and for being grateful, which are two very powerful aspects of the full moon, and profoundly reflects the duality essence of Gemini.

As the light of the moon grows, so does her power, and as she swells with light we can tap into this increase to amplify our gratitude, our devotion and our magic.

One of the things that I am most grateful for this year, is you. Without your readership and presence in my life, all that I do is meaningless. I often say that if my words were to reach just one woman, and inspire her to begin her journey back to The Goddess - then I have fulfilled one of my most important life's purposes. And, so it is with gratitude for you, that I've written a special prayer for tonight's full moon as a token of my thanks, and it is my hope that wherever you live, you devote an evening under the moon to express your own gratitude for something that fills you with joy, to give thanks for whatever it is that you have received from The Divine, for all that you have learned, experienced and received this year, and also to prepare yourself for the coming year. If you are unable to use the prayer tonight, please feel free to use it on any full moon.
