October Hunter's Moon Worksheet

The Hunter's Moon, also known as the Falling Leaves Moon, Sanguine Moon, and Drying Grass Moon, occurs during October. The name Hunter's Moon comes from the fact that hunting season peaks during the Fall months, especially during October. This is the time of year for hunting and gathering to stockpile provisions for the upcoming Winter months. The falling leaves and drying grass comes from the fact that the trees are losing their leaves and the grasses are dying back, leaving dry stalks in its place. The nights lengthen, giving us time to hunker down and reflect upon the months prior, making this the perfect time to address bad habits, start fresh, and work with your ancestors.

This month's Full Moon worksheet contains the usuals of my past Full Moon worksheets, including a to release and cleanse section, a box for your intuition, and an oracle spread. I decided to switch to oracle cards from tarot because there is some talk in the witch community of tarot being a closed practice, and out of an abundance of caution I felt switching was best. Unlike past worksheets, however, this one can be used every October, as it is based on the correspondences of the moon itself and not other astrological events. The tarot spread for this month features 3 cards to help you get in touch with your ancestors.
