The full moon in October is sometimes called the Blood Moon. I’ve read that it marked the time when herds would be thinned to ensure survival of the fittest livestock over the winter. Meditating on this, I find that this is the season for culling. I plan to go through my things as much as I’m able and let go of what isn’t serving me. It’s good preparation for the winter, which is my time of reflection. Clearing space will prepare me for the cleansing snows and allow spring to enter my life with plenty of room to bring new growth and blooming possibilities.
