On October 18 the end of the Lunar Eclipse will be visible here in eastern North America as the Moon rises at 7:45 pm.  The moment of fullness is at 9:38 pm EDT.  Of course we need clear skies to see this special event, but all those who are attuned to cosmic energies will feel the full Moon and lunar eclipse consciously, and can meet the powerful forces at work with an open embrace.

This is the Moon of Gort, the Ivy plant.  A close companion with Muin (Vine) of last Moon,

Ivy represents the spiral search for the self.  Chewed by the followers of Dionysus as a source of ecstatic release, Gort continues the connection with wine/vine because she was believed to relieve the worst effects of wine, and was often included in signs for taverns.
