The Moon of Convivality
October Full Hunter's Moon This is the month when the leaves are falling and the game is fattened. Now is the time for hunting and laying in a store of provisions for the long winter ahead. October's Moon is also known as the Travel Moon and the Dying Moon.
-the Farmer's Almanac.
The mysterious and magical moon of October, for some reason a full moon is associated with Halloween, though this is usually not the case. Perhaps it is the belief that majikal denizens gather under the full moon to dance. Who knows.
the October moon is also known as the blood moon, one queses it is from the fogs so common at this time of year.
Still, it is this moon of children of all ages dressed up and hunting for merriment and a chance to laugh at death. that last excursion out into the warmth and feasting and conviviality. I think I would call this the Moon of Conviviality. this full moon will soon be here, laugh and enjoy, be a kid at heart.
