New Moon = October 6th | Full Moon = October 20th
As the first few weeks of Fall settle in, we are now preparing for winter & the upcoming holidays. The month is bookended by Halloween aka Samhain in the Celtic culture. Samhain offers an opportunity to be in awe of the shorter days & to welcome the darkness. October 31st is a great day to (safely) have a bonfire or light candles. Feel the warmth of the fire, see the light of the flame in the dark of night. This is a time of harvest & gratitude for all that we grow & cultivate. In preparation for winter there is also an opportunity to slow down & reflect. October is a good time to be assessing what it is you want to learn. Here on Kaua'i we feel the seasonal shift in the swell. Soon there will be a lot more energy moving in the ocean. Change is constant yet it feels so potent this month.
