Embracing the Energy of October’s Second Full Moon
This month we will experience a second full moon on the 31st. It is rare for a second full moon, also known as a blue moon, to occur on Samhain or Halloween. An opportunity is being presented to engage these powerful energies in a positive and productive manner.

The veil between the ordinary and non-ordinary worlds thins this time of year making it much easier to access your intuitive connection. This creates the perfect moment to participate in full moon ritual and intuition building exercises which encourage an exploration, enhancement, and expansion of your intuitive capacity. Additionally, this is an ideal time to engage the supportive relationship with your guides, especially during dreamtime or meditation.
I suggest working with your second chakra, which governs your gut level intuition, and your sixth chakra, which governs your clairsenses. During your meditation or self-reflection time it is extremely helpful to hold carnelian and ilolite stones. These stones aid in the clearing and harmonizing of your sacral and third eye chakras and enhance your intuition, clairsenses, and spirit guide communication.
Making a blue moon elixir is a beautiful ritual that facilitates a deeper sense of connection to your intuition, spirituality, ancestors, and spirit guides. Place a clear glass bowl filled with spring water under the light of the full moon. Your bowl of water will be energetically infused with the healing essence of the blue moon. Once made, your potion will enhance your intuitive development, clairsenses, and spirit guide connection. Ideally, retrieve your bowl of blue moon preparation before sunrise. Store your liquid remedy in a glass mason jar in the refrigerator and use it within a month. Your elixir makes a beautiful supportive addition to any bath. You may also want to place your concoction into a spray bottle for ease of use. Spritz your elixir just above your crown chakra right before meditation or self-reflection time.
Wishing you an expansive and healing blue moon experience!
