|XVII: The Moon.|
From Tarot Illuminati by Lo Scarabeo.
"Most Witches are in fact elemental vampires who, according to legend, gain their powers from the moon..." -- The Demoniacal
Several Moons ago, he said to me: "Your recent communications about your relationship to energy made me ponder your Luna devotions as she is traditionally yin and cool, and a perfect ground... so I wonder where she is in your current moment. You missed your full moon post I think for the first time in a long old ... Not a thing for self-recrimination but perhaps significant..."
It's so annoying how you know me.

But the lapse in exercising my fifth chakra began long before...
And I blame most of it on the drought & heat & fires for the lack of fungi because I can see from the record that this is where it all began. Or ended.
(And no, this is not the "Snow Moon," because we don't have any.)
But the Moon, She doesn't bow to climate change, so I have no explanation for the disconnect save for... what? My spiritual web -- is it that sensitive to changes from one end to the other?
Perhaps a spiritual lifeway, as it becomes truly organic -- that is, of the organism -- also becomes much like any other living system itself. As with our ecosystems, our energetic fields, our planetary wellness, etc. -- alter the balance of one thing & watch the mayhem begin.
It is worth some thought, anyway.
And so the poetry for this Esbat illustrates my personal bond with the Moon as silent confidant. She is for me, a little bit like a Star to follow, but also a bit of a recent reflection as well. The model Role Model, in so many ways.
Moonchild, by Christopher Poindexter
There was a reason
that she was so
romantic about the moon.
It never asked her
questions or begged
for the answers, nor
did she ever have
to prove herself to it.
It was always just
there – breathing,
and in ways most
humans can’t understand:
Blessings to you this Esbat, my friends.
