FuLL mOOn ~ October ~ Hunter's mOOn

san*guine ~ {adjective}
1. cheerfully optimistic, hopeful, or confident;
a sanguine disposition.

Moon of many mOons..
Hunter's moon
Blood moon
Sanguine moon.

Hunter's Moon, or sometimes the Blood Moon, 
gets it's name from Hunters 
who tracked and killed their prey 
by Autumn Moonlight,
stockpiling food for the Wynter ahead.
It's also a great time to give 
thanks for the Animals and Plants 
that died to allow the balance of nature to be maintained.

"Twilight, a timid fawn, went GLimmering by,
and Night, the dark~blue Hunter,
followed fast."
~ George William Russell

Sanguine moOn is yet another name 
for this October moOn.
Cheery and red?
maybe we should call it Blush Moon.
Yeah we all shine on, like the moon, and the stars, and the sun.
John Lennon
Also at this time, the Veil between this World,
and the Underworld, is thinnest.

The Celts associated this moon with Protection, Prosperity, Healing.
Increase in Psychic Abilities and Fertility also.

"His sanguine Spirit turns every firefly into a Star."
~Arthur Conan Doyle

Spend some time reflecting on this moon tonight; 
think about how we are a part of the natural cycles.
How this is a time of inner cleansing to make way 
for the justice of karma; 
a time for moving beyond sacrifice to seek renewal.
Reflect on the sacrifices you have made this year;
they will nurture and fortify your spirit through the coming darkness and cold.

Then again,  nothing like a quick dash through the woods naked
under a full moon to lift the Spirits!

Zoë: You sanguine about the kinda reception we're apt to receive on an Alliance ship, Captain?
Mal: Absolutely. What's "sanguine" mean?
Zoë: Sanguine. Hopeful. Plus, point of interest, it also means "bloody".
Mal: Well, that pretty much covers all the options, don't it?
