How often do you venture out at night to look at the moon? Have you taken the time to really see the moon? Seeing goes beyond looking and observing. It involves making a deep connection and feeling it within. There is much more to the moon than meets the eye.

Preparation and Cooperation

October’s Full Moon is named the Full Hunter’s Moon. North American tribes would use this lunar time wisely to prepare for the cold winter months ahead, in cooperation with the wisdom of Nature. Having harvested corn and grains in the weeks before, tribes and settlers would use the light of the Hunter’s Moon to hunt deer and fox while they were searching for fallen grain. While most people no longer hunt and gather in the same way the ancient tribes did for survival, we can use this celestial presence to gather in a different way. Here, we stand in the moon’s presence and gather the essence of the moon through our Qigong practice. This effort can add to the quality of our entire system, which directly influences our health.

The Moon and Women’s Health

The Moon rotates on its axis every 27 days. It also travels around Earth every 27.3 days. What other systems follow a similar cycle? One is the female reproductive cycle. Ancient Qigong masters and traditional Chinese medical doctors used the moon’s energetic presence to allow the body to reset with a quality practice on the full moon. From an energetic perspective, they knew that just one day with the full moon equals the power of 30 days. Quality Qigong practice can help you jump start your own natural healing ability and maximize the benefits you feel and receive.

Align With Nature’s Messages

The Full Hunter’s Moon will reach its peak on Wednesday, October 20 at 10:57 AM EST. As such, this is the best time to tap into the potential of the full moon. Stand in our powerful, meditative posture The Dragon Stands Between Heaven and Earth at this time to connect to the moon’s powerful presence and align with the transformational energy of Autumn. Pay attention to the signs the season is speaking with leaves falling, squirrels gathering nuts, and bears fattening up in preparation for the winter rest. Use this opportunity to align with Nature’s messages. The time is now. Don’t waste this opportunity.

As an added celestial treat, while the light of the moon fills the sky, the Orionid meteor shower will peak the night of October 20 into the morning of October 21. Look toward the bright star of Betelgeuse in the constellation of Orion after midnight to view the origins of the Orionids meteor shower. Likewise, look to the constellation Taurus to connect with the origins of the Southern Taurid meteor showers, which will continue to be visible until November 20. Feel the essence of the shooting stars moving through you as your energy shifts and make a lasting connection within.
