My dream-time remembering is of a particularly dark time in the ancient war waged for millennia against the Light: it may be your nightmare too, for the men and women who were on Earth then are here again. Do you remember? That is what this Full Moon is all about – reminders and choices as it illuminates starkly the schisms and fissures in our world as the battle for the Light rages between religions and races, nations and individuals, values and intents, compassion and cruelty. This is the Moon of the Hunter, and it is Blood red as it falls into its eclipse.

Blood Moon 2014[/caption]
Nightmares are reminders of the past, and of dark events and feelings that seem real at the time but which fade in the light of day. Light dissolves the dark, always, and the dark cannot exist in the Light. So it is that the sombre happenings of war and plague and death all around us may seem like a terrible reality now, but the imminence of a great Light will turn it into a dream.
This Full Moon of Blood and Hunt offers us the choice as to whether to believe in our nightmares and give in to them, or to wait, knowingly, for our world to wake up to a new way of life as the black flags of the perpetrators of darkness become white flags of peace.
Did you know that a Blood Moon signifies the End Times? And after the end, comes a new beginning – always.
