The Moon


The full moon has always been something special to me. Like many others, I've worked in hospitals, schools, and other institutions where the full moon seemed to effect the behavior of others. Emergency rooms are known for their extra busy nights when the moon is full.

Witches believe that magic is at its greatest when the moon is full, making those nights special for spell work and ritual.


The moon has always seemed like a protector to me, like a watchful mother casting a soft light through the darkness. When I had a job that involved a long commute and late hours, the moon seemed to watch over me and provide companionship.


I took this picture through the trees last week during the full moon. The night was foggy, giving this moon a mystical quality.

Blessings and Peace,

Jill
