I am unequivocally a lover of the moon 🙂
Tonight I’ll get to see her, once again, in all her majesty.
The moon, in my opinion, is one of God’s most beautiful gifts.
And I’ve been nursing a crush on this celestial ‘mama’ for as long as I can remember.
I watch her.
I talk to her.
I dance ‘with’ her.
I read about her.
In fact, I adore Luna related folklore.
A few years back, while poking around on the interwebs, I ran across a little ritual for wishing on the moon.
After reading it, I thought, “Hmmm this might be fun to try someday.”
And, with that, I saved it for future reference.
Well it looks like future reference has arrived 🙂 and tonight Lady J and I are going to give it a try!
I’m listing the steps here just in case you’d like to ‘join’ us 🙂
Wishing on the Moon
Gather some pennies–some sources say 9.
Go outside and face the moon.
Spread your arms as if you are about to give it a hug.
“You have said that when you’re around, prayers are answered, chains unbound, you promise that all one’s wishes shall come true.”
Now, visualize your wish as if it were already fulfilled.
Speak your wish out loud.
Then, throw the pennies toward the moon.
Now say, “Now take this token of my love as your silver light shines from above, please bring to me what I ask of you by harvest night and morning dew. So shall it be.”
Oh yeah, before you go forth, let me offer a couple of caveats:
First, as I said, I found this ritual on the interwebs. Actually, I’ve seen it on several different sites; none of which listed the actual author. That said, if you know, without a doubt, who wrote it please feel free to add that in comments and I will update the post 🙂
Second, I ain’t got no idea if this will work, so take it with a grain of salt. I make no promises so consider it a form of entertainment ONLY and NOT a guarantee that your wish will be granted.
Tell me your moon stories in comments. Better yet, if you try this or have tried it, let me know what happens/happened 🙂
Now go frolic in the moonlight! Don’t forget to bring your pennies and a wish!
For my Corsican Twin, Gloria, who is now frolicking in the moonlight in Seattle–A wish fulfilled!
