In skylore, the October full moon is called the Hunter’s Moon. It’s the time when peoples indigenous to the Northern Hemisphere would hunt by the silvery light of the full moon.
Lunar moments have held significance to humans for a long time. Sure, we might no longer rely on lunar cycles to track our activities, or need moonlight to hunt for our survival. But a growing trend is drawing on ancient beliefs to understand the role the moon plays in connecting us to nature and it’s creative power. It’s part of the ethos of the Folk School to explore the meaning behind those connections.
Perhaps we can use the phases of the moon to bring what is hidden into light, just as the the autumn hunter is guided by the light of the moon, and the signs that are hidden within nature.
