Molly Rice shares some of her Full Moon portal drawings from 2017 - 19
When you look up at the Moon do not forget to notice the stars.
As we hunker down into our winter hibernation and spend more time in our nests it seems appropriate that Bernadette Mac has drawn this card today ( 21st November 2019) - thanks for sharing B.
Now is the time to look at whether you are allowing yourself to receive the extraordinary gift of feeling at home wherever you are.
Take time to savour it so it can deepen and remain with you.
On the other hand if you feel that the world is out to get you it's time to take a break.
Go outside tonight and look at the stars.
Even if you can't see them know deep with that they are there.
10th January 2020
Hi everyone and welcome to a little bit of moon magic.
10th January 2020 the first full moon of the New Year named after the howling wolf in some cultures. It was known as the Old Moon, Ice Moon, Snow Moon and the moon after Yule. It is also a Penumbral lunar eclipse and the moon is in Cancer.
For some you may be feeling that you are doing a lot of shadow work, the more you rise the more the shadow shows itself. Well, let it show you what it is that you need to close the door shut on so you can go forward in the light.
This full wolf moon is asking you to now close the door shut. There has been a huge amount of illness in the late 2019 and it has been a great way to clear energy.
Change is happening on so many levels, transformation, let go. Look at it as not a breakdown but a break through.
The Eclipse is a way of bringing out these old stories which will pass, bringing about the light of the moon. There will be a fight or flight feeling but, know that you are growing. Cry. Crying is so healing. Give yourself the gift of self love, allow your gifts to shine through.
The date struck me with this full Wolf Moon – 10.2020 comes to 50 take away the 0 and you have the number 5, throat chakra - speak your truth. And still if you add the numbers up 122 leaving out the 0 also comes to 5... again speak and walk your truth.
The moon is about hidden magic, so go deep within, heal the past, bring out your gifts, and love, and most of all be true to yourself.
Many blessings, Bernadette Mac
21st January 2019
First full moon of 2019, a moon called the Super Blood Wolf Moon, and a total lunar eclipse.
I was just woken up, at about 4.30am'ish, thirsty and decided to go and look outside.
The moon was to the right of the house and it was nearly covered but I
managed to get a photo of it. I felt a great sense of wonder.
knew others were out and about around the country but, me being in an
urban area, I felt like the only soul out taking the photos.
own inner feeling was there was a soul healing and knowing taking place
in the early hours of this morning. It was a rare opportunity for me
and many others.
And for those who didn't see it, I know there was great healing taking place.
Moon blessings to all. Bernadette.
|The eve of the Super Full Blood Moon. |
Let there be a feeling of peace and ease in your heart tonight.
By the light of the moon
may there be healing and blessings to all.
As we approach the first full moon of 2019, a moon called the Super Blood Wolf Moon, and a total lunar eclipse on the 21st of January...
... ask yourself what do I want to achieve this year? have I let go of energies that no longer serve me?
The moon is, for some, a perfect opportunity to reset your goals and dreams for the coming year... kind of like a reboot.
So take the opportunity to reboot.
Make it simple as they say...
Make a list of what you want to manifest and let go of it, burn it, and just let it go.
We can use the the Super Blood Wolf Moon to start anew, but remembering every moment is an opportunity...
Blessings on this full Blood Wolf Moon.
27th February 2021
Hi Everyone, you are very welcome to some moon magic and this full
moon the 2nd one of the year, the 27th of February 2021, Full Moon in
As it is now springtime and the evenings are getting so much brighter and it's a time of birthing of new growth,
Did you plant new seeds in the garden? or in the home ?
Did you ask for new ideas and projects on new moon?
Have you made changes in your life?
If so bring yourself back to the moment of planting the seed of new ideas, or new growth, and look into your life today and see if you have achieved any of these goals, or maybe you asked on another's behalf. No matter how big or small the change is, it matters. It makes a big difference, and seeing your effort come to life is very rewarding.
So, on this full moon in Virgo, I invite you to step out in nature and ground yourself deep into the earth beneath your feet. Take a deep breath and bring the fresh grounding energy of the earth up through your body and up to the light of the full moon, to purify your physical and emotional body.
Ask yourself is there any loose ends you need to release and let go of ?
are there any issues you need to also let go of from the past, so you can break free and move forward and grow just like the seed you planted?
As we come into this new season and the Spring Equinox afoot watch your manifestations bloom to life. Just like a flower. bring peace to your heart and feel your soul restored as you align with your higher self and heart energy
Now this full moon I was guided to bring in the crystal moonstone.
And the meaning of the moonstone is compassion and empathy. It helps us to tap into our intuition and enhances our psychic abilities and clairvoyance. The feminine energy is activated by the moonstone. The serene and tranquil energy of the moonstone also invites creativity, healing and motherly protection.
Like many I know, including myself, I always leave out my crystals on the full moon to be cleared and energized and I ask you to pay close attention to the moonstone as she does her work in the field of healing.
So on this full moon, I wish you all great healing and blessings. Stay connected, grounded.
Love and light. Bernadette Mac
9th February 2020
Hi everyone welcome to a little moon magic.
This month the 8th and 9th of February is a Snow Moon in Leo. Some are saying "what does this mean". Words that come to mind is creativity , manifestation, love, playfulness , music.
Leo being the lion, the leader, maybe it's a time of taking back control of your life expressing yourself and being creative, seeing things unfold in a beautiful way, new love, or love for the self, being more mindful of your health and what direction your life has been going.
Have you been feeling the need to start something new?
It's that time of Spring where all the seeds we planted, whether it be in the ground or in our life, when things are starting to grow. Even a snowdrop appears through the snow, a great symbol of strength just like the lion.
Over the next few days take time out and see how far you have come, see the positive in your life, also this Full Moon falls near Valentine's Day. Leo being the fire and passion, a time of creativity, throwing yourself into what brings you passion in life, your life, your gifts, a very creative time.
Also the Snow Moon is like a blank page. In some cases snow storms keep us from going from our homes but gives us an a opportunity to focus on our gifts, get back to basics and create our gifts we put away on a shelf.
So this Full Moon use words and actions that are very positive and see the seed you planted grow and come into your light... see your strengths and gifts but most of all set yourself free and be in a place of joy, be grateful.
Love and light on this full Snow Moon in Leo, Bernadette Mac.
19th February 2019
As we come up to the 2nd full moon of the year 2019, again it is still a New Year to some, just having passed the Chinese New Year, the 5th of February 2019 and, of course, Valentines just on the 14th. So a lot of energies moving there.
So I invite you to pause for a
moment and remember loved ones who brought us joy and laughter, and then
bring the focus on the self.
Maybe some of you have started spring cleaning in the home or internally, breaking old patterns of thought or actions. Only you know your journey to date.
Have you noticed how things around us in nature are coming to life very early this year? time is surely speeding up.
As you go about doing a spring clean maybe you come across some old photos and items you are letting go of or keeping.
As you do so, have you noticed how time had flown by and how everything seems so far away, yet at the same time close?
It is, maybe, the energy coming up to the Spring Equinox. I am no expert, but something to think about.
So on this full moon, blessings. May your journey so far have been a gentle one.
Preparing for the Full Moon
As we approach the 2nd full moon of this year, 2019, on 19th of February, it is a time of new beginnings, a time of growth.
Buds are starting to come alive again, the birds are singing in the evening time, spring is surely here. The evenings are getting brighter so pause for a moment and ask yourself;
'What is it I would like to see grow and flourish in my life this spring?'
A little thought for the next coming weeks....
'What are you grateful for???'
Only in gratitude can we make room for more blessings, a time for love, light and healing. Bernadette
27th to 29th March 2021
... and the reason for the 3 dates is the moon will appear full for about three days around this time, from Saturday morning through to Monday night and early into Tuesday morning.
This full moon is known for the Worm, Crow, Sap or Auger moon, the holy festival moon and it's also a super moon on the 28th March 2021.
Now it's right in the middle of spring equinox and Easter Sunday
on the 4th April and it's in the star sign Libra. We had the spring
equinox in Aries which happened on the 20th March and it's important to
know Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and the beginning of the
With all this in mind, at this time of full super moon, the 3rd of the year 2021, it really feels like new beginnings. Which brings me to the date 28th... and when you add 2 and 8 you get 10.
And take into account the meaning of numbers 1 and 0. It is known that the number one is the symbol of leadership, new beginning and success. The number means that you have to create your own reality, follow your beliefs and your intuition.
On the other side the number 0, which is related to universal energy and spiritual aspects of your own personality. Number 0 will help you achieve your spiritual enlightenment and help you use your inner strength and wisdom. Now to know the meaning of the number 1 and 0 it's not hard to realise what the number 10 actually means - new beginnings leadership, determination, confidence and independence. The number 10 is to remind you of your spiritual life and that you should listen to your intuition and let your angels guide you to your path.
So on this full moon, supermoon, in Libra the energies are extremely high and the vibration also and it's a good time to take the opportunity to start afresh.
It's a time of awakening, death and rebirth right in the middle of spring equinox and Easter Sunday.
Just like the worm has come out of the Earth, the flowers, the buds starting to grow, where they have been in a dark place are now coming into the light and on the eve of the full moon our clocks moved forward, which gives us an extra hour of daylight.
And next Sunday the 4th April in Easter Sunday. Christ will rise again and so do we on so many levels.
So on this super Full Moon I invite you to take the opportunity to start afresh. As I said do what feels right for you at this time, and that is listening to your intuition and guidance.
Events like the full moon, spring equinox, autumn equinox, winter and summer solstice, and other celebrations around the Celtic calendar, it's a great time to connect with not only the earth but the heavens and whatever that means for you personally.
|On the full moon and new moons I like to leave out my crystals to be energized and cleansed along with my angel cards and some personal |
items of my choice, so on this full supermoon crystal are you drawn to?
On this full moon I'm drawn to the amethyst crystal. This purple stone is said to be incredibly protective and healing. It is said to help with negative thoughts and brings forth humanity, serenity and spiritual wisdom. It helps with addictions and cleanses ones own energy field of negative influences and attachments. It creates a powerful shield of spiritual light around the body and acts as a barrier against lower energies, psychic attacks, geopathic stress and unhealthy environments. This is truly a very powerful crystal and one which I will be putting out for cleansing and working with on the super full moon.
As we approach the holy Easter weekend.. a time of new beginnings and rebirth, just like the full super moon is in the centre from the spring equinox to Easter Sunday, I invite you to bring your intention to your centre and what is that you would like to manifest in the coming weeks ahead. Or maybe you were just to keep your focus in this moment and time. As I said do whatever feels right for you we can only guide it to another and support each other at this moment in time.
Full Super moon blessings to you all and love, light and healing. Bernadette Mac
9th March 2020
Hey everybody, welcome to a little bit of moon magic.
March full moon will be a super moon and it's also called a Worm Moon on the 9th of March. Why is it called a Worm Moon?
it's the time of year that earthworms and grubs tend to emerge from the
winter dormancy, making a sure sign of spring, yes, spring is in the
air and there is a supermoon.
What does this mean for you at this time?
The moon will be brighter, things are starting to grow, emerging from the darkness and coming up into the light.
Are you emerging from a darkness or place of reflection, just like the worm? Coming out of your shell with confidence,new ideas, and looking forward. Maybe you have come to the end of the cycle just like the full moon?
As this full moon is a supermoon this month what is reflecting in your life at this moment?
Are you beginning to shine again, stepping out of your comfort zone just like the worm, the daffodils, the snowdrops? Emerging up from the darkness of the Earth? Yes, it's the Time to Shine. A time to step into your authentic self.
Have you taken up a new craft, a project or maybe an old craft that you put on the shelf and you are starting to do again from a different perspective?
There's an old saying that I remember my mother saying when somebody has gone through something really difficult and have come out the other side of.
There's a spring in her or his step... you can see it...
I love the old sayings like that to remind us things do pass.
Do, on this full super Worm Moon, allow yourself to shine.
Many blessings Bernadette Mac

|This is an old photo on the Hill of Tara, the moon over the church. |
I was standing at St Patrick's statue as I took this on the 29th of November 2017.
|The moon through the strings of a harp being played on Tara.|
Full Moon is 21st March 2019 at 01.42
The moon has been hiding lately.
As we approach not only the third full moon of the year, on the 21st of March 2019, just before it is St Patrick's day, when celebrations are taking place in most parts of the world.
The full moon this time is known as the Full Worm moon.
The Old Famer's Almanac:
It's the year's third and final of three straight full supermoons and of course the Spring Equinox is around that time also...
3 events are going on which to me bring to mind the shamrock.
So pause for a moment and ask yourself,
- What have I achieved this year so far?
- Have I reached personal goals I set up for myself?
- ... let go of energies that no longer serve me?
As the evenings become brighter again, remember it's a great opportunity to start again.
There is nothing set in stone.
Each and everyone's journey is different, all going in the same direction with different experiences and stories to tell.
So on that note, may you have a blessed St Patrick's Day, Spring Equinox and full supermoon blessings.
7th April 2020
|Hi Everyone, welcome to little bit of moonmagic and boy, there was some moonmagic!|
Last night, the 7th of April 2020 on the full pink moon, I have never seen so many photos on social media. Each and everyone was so beautiful. There was a feeling of collectiveness and love last night through this event, as people are being asked at this time to stay in their homes and stay safe in this pandemic.
The world may be standing still at the moment for the human race. They all, however, are seeing Mother Nature's beauty, showing herself to all. Even some animals are coming out of the woods and walking the streets, like deer and fox. Sheep have been spotted on children's playground. It's like the animal kingdom has come out to play. It just warms the heart.
Now the full moon is pink and it being the colour of love, rose quartz. Mother Nature. Now everyone is seeing her beauty and wonder and this full pink moon is one we will always remember for sure.
Yes, a lot is going on around with the planets and astrology, with the full moon, if you search online. But I would like to keep it simple at this time.
As people stay home they are being more creative and together more than ever and getting to know their neighbours in this lockdown. Also chatting more on the phone, facetime and more. There are no planes in the sky and cars on the roads. Yes the earth has stood still.
For me I am using it as an opportunity to create and, being like many others, cleaning out my space, getting into the garden and apprecating my family and friends more and my space and Mother Nature around me and doing a lot more self healing.
There is a lot of learning and unlearning at this time, and being still and focus, and a massive letting go. So on this full pink moon embrace your gifts and creativity, send forth healing pink light to your beautiful planet and most of all peace.
May you all be blessed with love, light, and healing, Bernadette and remember...
This to shall pass...
19th April 2019
|This is an old photo taken a few years back on St. Patrick's Day on the Hill of Tara.|
As we approach the 4th full moon of 2019, on Friday the 19th of April at 12.12, in some traditions it is known as the pink full moon as it is almost that time of flowers in many colours which start to bloom.
Already the cherry blossoms are out in full bloom and so beautiful.
It is also Good Friday,a day for many of reflection on what it is we need to let go of, to forgive. Forgiving and letting go is very healing for us.
As it's a pink moon and there are many different stories around it that can really get us caught up in our heads, I invite you to bring the focus on our hearts today.
Visualise the colour pink. Hold your hand on your heart and think about someone or a situation you need to let go of and forgive... and breathe 3 breaths. In some cases some may find this hard to do.
Then I invite you to bring the focus on the self and forgive oneself, for in doing so you allow for love to come into your heart.
Give it time. Don't rush it. Just hold your hand on your heart and breathe.
This up and coming weekend is about letting go, acceptance, forgiveness, and rebirth... not to mention the Easter bunny or hare in some traditions, and Easter eggs, a symbol of new birth.
So this full moon is set around a very important event... and on this moon magic time, which is happening on 12.12 midday,
- ask yourself what do I need to let go of,
- what do I need to forgive,
- maybe forgive the self,
- bring love into my heart,
- start new projects,
- or simply fill my home with bright coloured flowers.
Whatever you do on this holy week and full pink moon, may you be blessed with love and light, and a happy full Easter pink moon.
26th May 2021
Better late than never! as the saying goes...
Full super moon blessings to you all and still feeling the energy of it myself.
It's otherwise known as a flower moon. So which flower are you drawn to as this May month comes to an end?
Whether it be a flower in full bloom or dandelion in your garden.
Something that I think is so beautiful to watch is a dandelion will open
up and greet the sun and at night when the Moon comes out she closes in
to go to sleep. There is so much we can learn not only from the sun,
the moon and the stars, but from the the seeds with plants in a garden
and the wildflowers especially.
And as I said before the full moon is a great opportunity to plant new seeds of life and what you would like to manifest. Full moon blessings to each and everyone of you.
Love, light and gratitude. Bernadette Mac
7th May 2020
This full moon is the 3rd super moon in a row and it's the last super moon of 2020. Full Moon in Taurus.
This full moon is known as the Flower full moon because of the abundance of blossoms that appear this time of year. It's also known as the Corn Planting moon, Milk moon.
The energies are very strong at this time of full moon. There is a lot going on in our world. Cocooning, social distancing, isolation, and yet there is a togetherness on another level. As the flowers begin to bloom it seems we go into a chrysalis phase, but in this phase we are not sleeping, we are creating, discovering, and doing a lot of inner deep work on the self. Just like the flower when it was a seed in the dark getting ready to grow and bloom, as too the butterfly in the chrysalis phase, it comes out into the world and spreads it wings and flies to the flower.
In this full moon tonight I invite you to look at the last few months and see what you have learned and unlearned. What gifts you have discovered. Ask yourselves, can I bring this to the world when this phase is all over?
Some may have made peace with the shadow self as it's a great opportunity to do so as we cannot have shadow without the light. It's finding the balance and the full moon is a good time to reflect and write down all one needs to let go of and start anew.
Some have have done so already with the events of the world today. Celebrate the light of the super Flower full moon and a just a few days after Beltane, Fire, Birth, Fertility.
Remember this tonight as we burn away what no longer serves us and give birth to new ideas. Emerge, fly, blossom and shine on this full moon.
Dance if you can.
Many many blessings on this May Full Super Flower Moon. Bernadette Mac
18th May 2019 at 22:11
|Hello everyone! |
Welcome to a little moon magic
on this month's full moon,
Saturday, May the 18th,
the 5th full moon of the year.
|It is known as a Flower Full Moon, |
a time for blossoming and spreading your wings and flying.
Step into your new ideas, goals and desires.
Up until now this year was a time for letting go and starting anew and this full moon is just the right time for doing so.
- what am I still holding onto and need to let go of?
- and what have I achieved so far?
Some might not feel they have been moving forward but we are always moving forward and renewing just like the flower.
So, pause for a moment...
take a deep breath and fly...
blossom and step forward...
Even if they are just small steps, small steps count. Many blessings to you all, Bernadette Mac.
24th June 2021- Midsummer's Day
Hi Everyone, last night was a full strawberry full moon, unfortunately, it was very cloudy over the past few nights and the moon was not to be seen here but very much felt.
It was the first full moon just after the summer solstice and the energy was somewhat different this year. more freedom and space to do more things including getting out to places to celebrate the summer solstice and it was very much welcomed.
Over the past year a lot of people spoke to me about how they were
taking the opportunity to go within as they stayed home and go on an
inner journey to heal anything they were still carrying from the past.
And some had dreams of things they thought they had healed and felt they
were going backwards but this was not the case as it also happened to
When I went to look at this I found so many in the same boat so to speak, full of emotions of the past, so with a lot of souls searching and speaking to many we discovered it was meant to be, as it was some karmic stuff being dealt with in our dream state, to help us let go of what no longer serves us.
And even in the waking hours we were faced with challenges of the
past which I was told was to clear the way for a new way of living in
the future. And in the present moment we have learned not only in the
past year to live one day at a time but learned what is important to us
and to have gratitude for what we already have in our lives.
So still in the energy of the full moon, strawberry and the summer solstice, I invite you to sit quietly in a place of nature and just look around you and see the beauty of mother nature as you have seen it over the past year and to look deep within and feel how family and health was more important than things and what others thought of you.
As we embark on a new journey don't lose sight of the learning of
healing inner wounds and the beauty of nature and family and friends
Celebrate life in a new way. just like the moon over the past few nights was not seen here in the sky but we knew deep in our hearts it was there... just like the past year we could not see family and friends and go to places we loved but deep inside we knew they were there and looked forward to seeing them again.
And for the ones who passed, they were very much there in our dreams at night or a song, flower or smell to remind us we are never really alone. they may be out of sight but not out of mind.
So I invite you to set up a space in your home or out in your garden, whatever is more convenient for you, with a rose quartz crystal and a flower of your choice and sit quietly and tune into that inner voice within you and listen as you bring your hands To Your Heart and fill them with love and healing from your heart chakra
- and send healing to all those who need it in our world, to our family and friends, mother nature and the animal kingdom for the highest good of all.
As the sun starts to move and the moon phases change once again so do our selves.
Give thanks for the healing and the opportunity to have the space to do so, never losing sight that we can do this more often now with a better understanding.
Love, light and gratitude in our hearts, many blessings to each and everyone of you, Bernadette
5th June 2020 at 20:12
Hi everyone! welcome to a little bit of moon magic and last night the moon was very magical. It was a Strawberry Full Moon on the 5th of June 2020
This full moon, the 6th of the year, was no ordinary full moon. Traditionally coinciding with the wild strawberry season and also in the star sign Sagittarius.
Now some of you may be experiencing high emotions over the past few weeks or may have noticed others been very emotional.
There has been a mix of emotional feelings, like anger for one, in our world, maybe even yourself, in these time of lockdown and being at home clearing out your space. That can also bring about a lot of emotions as we clear out our space and find things that bring up some memories, good and bad.
I have noticed it in my own life as I clear out my space. How certain things affect us even like the sudden change in the weather, going from hot to cold, as we are all connected to the world and each other. Some may be experiencing some peace and healing and looking at their own issues at home and taking this opportunity to just be with the self and heal.
I feel there is a huge transformation going on in everyone and the planet and because we are all in this together we surely do feel it. On the good side of all that, we are noticing birds singing, a bee on a flower, the wildflower as well as the garden flower, butterflies even dragonflies by the river. I've seen them myself on one of my walks.
There are more posts on social meda of people creating things in their homes and garden, upcyling and transforming the old into new, without realizing it is happening within also, and looking at the full moon and sunsets that they never done before and noticing our beautiful planet and taking walks in nature. It is a good way to heal all the emotional feelings, and send good vibes to our world and the anger that is going on in some parts of the world.
So on this Strawberry Full Moon it's important
during the days surrounding the full moon that we try our best not to
The moon is also squaring master of illusion Neptune, making us extremely emotonal and sensitive as well as vulnerable to deception. That doesn"t mean we do nothing. Still it may be smart to take time to think through how we can best be useful and how to channel our frustrations and discomforts most effectively right now. Some by praying to send healing and good thoughts, compassion. If enough people send light to the ones who are in the dark times, in the hopes that it will help.
So on this full Strawberry Moon pause for
a moment, put your hand to your heart and ask yourself, how am I
feeling right now? what emotion is stirring up in me right now? Is it
love, joy, gratitude sadness, frustration or anger? Only you will know.
Then ask yourself, how can I turn this around? If it's anger, frustration, sadness even fear, turn to love, joy, gratitude and abundance, and most of all peace in my heart. Then focus when you feel that love and send it in a ball of light from the light of the moon to our world, and just let go.
So on this Strawberry Full Moon, let us feel love even if it's just for a moment, hold it in your hand from your heart and send blessings,
Blessings to you all, Bernadette Mac
17th June 2019
As we approach the full moon on the 17th June 2019, this Monday, which is a Strawberry Full Moon and also Father's Day on Sunday - honouring the father energy, the male side of us all - have you been putting things off, new ideas and projects, over the past few months?
As we come now to the 6th full moon of the year, the 6th charka, your inner knowing, speaking your truth and getting things done, you are tapping into the male side of the self.
On this Strawberry Full Moon, being the colour red of the base chakra, dig deep down to the base again bring it up to the 6th and speak your truth and get things done, keeping promises to the self.
We are also coming upto the Summer Solstice at this time - the longest day of the year.
time of gathering together and giving thanks to what we have in our
life, to the hardwork that goes into the land by both men and women who
work to put food on our table. Sometimes we lose sight of that and need
reminding from time to time.
Some of you may have noticed the moon has been hiding a lot behind the clouds this summer but deep within we know it's there, just like deep within yourself you know your purpose and your dreams and goals, new projects and change.
So on this full Strawberry Moon, Father's Day, Summer Solstice, ask yourself
“Am I keeping my promise to myself, speaking my truth, getting things done???”
Maybe on a deep level we are and cannot see it. Just like the moon behind the clouds, we know it's there, that deep knowing.
Full Moon blessings, Bernadette Mac.

What are you most proud of?
For this full moon is there anything that you would like to release that no longer serve you?
In what area in your life do you notice the most self criticism?
And the least self criticism?
What is in your life that needs more healing and letting go of?
For this full moon is there anything that you would like to start afresh?
It is good to write down your own questions and your dreams and goals and what you would like to attract in your life on this full moon. Using the energy of the full moon is a great opportunity to set good intentions and starting over just like the new moon and, as we come up to the energy of Lughnasad, the beginning of the harvest season on the 1st of August, number one, new beguinnings.
With all of that said I leave you with this quote:
be gentle with yourself because life is about the journey, not the destination
Full moon blessings to you all love, light, and healing.

5th July 2020
Hi everyone, welcome to some moon magic on the 5th of July 2020. It's the Buck Full Moon and a lunar eclipse.
The moon is in Capricorn this month, the 7th full moon of the year, so what does it mean for you this full moon?
Well, some would say it is very good for starting new projects,
creating something new. Maybe, after all the strange times we have been
having in the past few months, you have come to realise you need a
career change, maybe a creative side of you has emerged you thought you
never had and you would like to pursue that?
On the outside world, people have been awaking and standing up and speaking out and saying enough is enough and coming together and speaking out and it can draw you very much away from your inner self. So focus on the positive. Look at what you have created of late. It has helped many to work on the spiritual side of themselves.
Maybe you have been 'not doing' for a long time. We have been turning
inwards, our cave to create, and yet so very hard for others to be
We have had so many Eclipses this year. We have 6 and 3 so far, that is a lot of them. So the veil is thinner. We can tune into information much better. So think on a more positive thought. Raise your vibration. It is a very intense time. Some of you may feel like you are passing through an eye of a needle, but stick with it. Whatever you are focusing on will magnify even more. So pay attention on your thoughts and how you are feeling
Stay as positive as you can and shine a light. Take time out on this full moon and sit silently and see how far you have come over the past 5 months.
What changes have I made in my life?
What creative side did I discover?
As we have just had the 4th of July, have I become more independent?
For some, we reconnected with old friends we have not seen or heard from in years as we let far too much time pass by not getting in touch. Now we are coming together again and starting a new friendship on a different level.
Also pay attention to your dreams this full moon. What are they telling you? As it's the deep conscious of your soul.
A lot is going on this full moon, balance, completion, seeing things through. Whatever you are working on in your life this full moon and Eclipse is going to illuminate this for you, so you can work it through.
So, again, do it with a positive thought and attitude. If you have to close the door go within and do it alone then do so. Take that time for yourself and take that space, it is very important to do what is best for you.
This seems to be the energy on this Buck Full Moon with the Eclipse, so go with it.
Take care people on this full moon. Many blessings, Bernadette Mac

Hi everyone! Welcome to a bit of moon magic on 16th July 2019.
These photos were taken on Sunday 14th July 2019
The full moon this month has many names.
Buck Moon, named after new antlers that emerge from a buck's forehead around this time of year. It's also called the Thunder Moon, Hay Moon and Wort Moon.
So I ask you to reflect on all the other full moons up till now, this being the 7th full moon of the year.
What changes have you made in your life?
Maybe the road you set off on took a different route.
Have you, like the buck, emerged with your goals and desires?
Have you grown?
These are questions only you can answer.
Thunder Moon - are there things you still need to let go of?
Hay Moon - are you getting out in nature? maybe you are getting out in the fields and preparing for the autumn months ahead?
Wort full moon meaning to plant. Are you harvesting something you have planted over the past few month, whether it be on the land or personal?
Again only you can answer these questions.
As we come into a season change, are you noticing the evening drawing in each day?
The days are getting shorter.
It is a time to get ready for the coming months ahead, gathering food and herbs from the land.
It is a time of abundance, emerging, preparing and gratitude.
Many blessings on this full Buck moon.

A full moon in Aquarius. A gentle time of reflecting....
So here is a piece from the book Anam Cara Spiritual Wisdom from the Celtic World by John o' Donoghue
A blessing of Solitude:
May you recognise in your life the presence, power and light of your soul.
May you realise that you are never alone, that your soul in it's brightness and belonging connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe
May you have respect for your own individuality and difference.
May may you realise that the shape of your own soul is unique and that you have a special destiny here.
But behind the facade of your life there is something beautiful, good and eternal happening
May you learn to see yourself with the same daylight, pride and expectation with which God's sees you in every moment.
Blessings to you all on this full moon, Bernadette
3rd August 2020
Hi everyone, welcome to a little bit of moon magic on the 3rd of August 2020, and the moon is in Aquarius.
The energy this month is about
everyone coming together to help one another. This time around it is
not about you, it's about helping others. It'a a time to use your energy
to light up others, use your light and energy, pull up your sleeves and
help. Actions speak louder than words.
There is so much you can do to help people who need it right now. Maybe you see yourself in them, when you were going through a life-changing time and you got through it, whether it was moving house, new job, starting your own business, or leaving a relationship or starting a new one.
Is there someone
you know at this moment in time that could do with a helping hand and
your knowledge and experience? You're not telling anyone how to live
their life but you are helping them by showing them how you
worked through your fears and got out the other side of it. And the
rest is up to them. It's also a time of realization that maybe that job
was not for you.
As we are coimg into the Leo fire sign it's a time to really get things done. There is a lot of spiritual energy around at this time, especially over the past few months or more. More and more people have been connecting to nature and seeing what really has value in there lives and connecting to a higher power or vibration. So this full moon is saying connect to the higher self, nature, meditation. This really gives your life meaning rather than going out shopping to make yourself feel good - it's just a temporary fix and people have come to see this during the time of change in our world over the past 6 months.
So today, on this full moon, its about helping others if you are in that position. Remember helping others is also helping the self, and you are learning all the time. and do it unselfishly.
As we come up also to the energy of Lughnasadh give thanks to all the hard work for the food we grow in our fields as we get ready for the autium. Already the evenings are drawing in and there is a nip in the air at night. Some have already lit their fires in the home and there is a dampness as the sunsets at an earlier time in the evening. It's a time to stock up on the food, fire wood. As we celebrate the harvest there is also a sense of getting ready for the autumn time ahead.
So on this full moon, key words -
reach out and help others,
give thanks for all you have in your life today and what you have acheived,
connect to spiritual evnergy by connection with like minded people,
be a service to others without expectations,
and most of all be kind,
stay connected and safe.
Blessings to you all on this full moon. May the fire in your soul bring you much healing. Bernadette Mac.
15th August 2019
Hi Everyone to a bit of moon magic on this months full moon.
New moon in Leo, full moon in Aquarius, there are sure a lot of energies going on this month!
August 15th 2019 - without getting too lost in so many different meanings I invite you to feel it with your heart, your intuition, use your chakras to tune into your body on this full moon, remembering we all have the answers within.
I would like to share some stories that I have come across with people sharing this month's full moon and also the new moon in Leo, what I picked up by their experience in which I could relate to, and of course the new and full moons we have been tuning into up to now.
Up to now we all have been setting goals, dreams and desires and letting go.
Making new plans in the New Year our first full moon, and with each
new and full moon, we got the chance to start over again with plans we
made for our life, maybe a new job, move to a new house, go on a trip,
or step into your own power.
Have you been putting off being a healer, work in holistic therapies, art and craft, music, dance, write a book?
I have come across people who shared that this full moon has brought change into their life, something they were working on a few years back and never gave up and now it happened.
Others are being forced or led to change that can be uncomfortable.
Go with it, also letting go of the past. Heal it and move on and let go,
and watch the time speed up making changes and stepping into the new.
So I invite you to say :
- All is well in my world
- I embrace change knowing everything is working out for me
- I have a support network of like minded souls, in more ways than one, looking out for me
See change as a new adventure. There is much abundance, celebrate it.
Time to plant that seed.
So, from the heart, plant that seed with love, peace and healing.
Many blessings on this August full moon 2019. BernadetteMac
20th September 2021
Full Harvest Moon. I felt the full moon was one of solitude and reflection. A time of
just been still and checking in with how you are and been gentle with oneself.
As I spoke to some friends I became aware of their need to be alone and step back on this full moon including myself. With a strong feeling of HOPE.
Looking at where one is at on their journey and going deep within as
the full moon is in Pisces, the fish, swimming in different directions
and yet a great sense of balance.
Also embarking on a new way of living and also a realization of much
gratitude for what we have learned over the past year or so.
And on this full moon we also had the autumn equinox a time of letting
go, just as the leaves on the trees do. The harvest, and the equal of
day and night as we go into the long evenings and early sunsets we
change along with nature... and nature, bing our greatest teacher, so I
would like to wish you all full moon blessings on this autumn equinox
and may your dreamtime be one of love , healing, harmony, and balance.
Love and light, Bernadette mac

2nd September 2020
Hi Everyone, welcome to a bit of moon magic. Full moon 2nd of September 2020 - also known as the Corn Moon and is in Pisces.
Harvest full moon. Last year I wrote of back to school. Work. New projects etc, etc, etc.
But this year the 9th full moon of the year is one with a difference.
Yes back to school, work, and so on but with many changes and a new way of living like never before.
Yesterday, the first of September, I took my granddaughter for a walk and we both saw a caterpillar on the path. I said "wow" and she repeated "wow" as we watched him/her cross the path into the grass.
I have not seen one since I was a little girl and thought how wonderful and thought as we are going through so many changes on our planet and learning to adapt to those changes maybe we will start to notice things we had never seen before or have never seen them in a long time, like the caterpillar.
It took me back to a place of magic and wonder as I'm sure it did the
same for my granddaughter as she was struck by 'ahh' as she watched
this strange creature crawling along the path but very beautiful.
There's also a lot of emotional stuff going on at the moment, outer, inner, in the world and in our own personal lives. A lot different from last year's full moon.
As I wrote last year, it's a time for transformation and moving forward and some may feel like just being alone. Take time out for the self so you can connect to your inner power, sort of like the Hermit.
Maybe like the caterpillar we need to do more of the same again.
Go deep within your cocoon, keeping your family and friends safe at this time of more movement.
The energy around the full moon is different for everybody and we must respect each and everyone's space at this time.
There is also a sense of freedom to transform and spread your wings and fly, just like the caterpillar that eventually becomes a butterfly. I feel at this time that nature and the animal kingdom have a lovely way of mirroring what's going on for us and on the planet.
Spirit keeper of the North.
I pulled a card today to see what comes up and this one did - Card meaning - take time out for contemplation, turn within, connect with your ancestors. Incubate ideas, mend relationships.
|Watch your dreams. Meditate. |
The answers are inside you, waiting to
be heard. Stay warm.
Create dreams for your future.
Repair whatever is
broken in your home and in your life. Forgive those people and
situations you've been dragging around for a while.
A time to let go.
As the moon is in Pisces it can be a very emotional time for some as it's a water sign, a time for letting go and moving forward gently. Now the evenings are getting darker and the leaves are starting to fall it is a perfect time for letting go.
I feel on this full moon to be extra gentle with yourselves.
Listen to your body and your soul. Rest when you need to and go gently with the energy of the full moon tonight.
It's important to take care of oneself and not get caught up in all the activity and energies that's going on in the outside world on the moment.
Take a deep breath In bringing yourself to this moment and time each time you feel yourselfdrift away to this, that or the other, bring the focus to your breath, to the self.
On this full moon, many blessings to you all. Bernadette Mac
14th September 2019
Take a deep breath and relax...
|Hi all. Welcome to the 14th September full moon.|
The full moon this month is a harvest moon and the moon is in Pisces this time round.
It is a time of Transformation and moving froward and some will feel like just being alone, to take time out for the self, so you can connect to your inner being or higher power, sort of like the hermit.
As the new moon was a best one getting things done and back to school and work etc, etc, now it time for rest as we get ready to transform forward.
Some take a holiday this time of year rather than the summer to prepare for the dark evening drawing in. Its also coming up on the Autumn equinox bringing in balance...
So I invite you to take a breath and bring the focus to the breath, as you breath in 3 times deeply and exhale all the time feeling grounded and connected to the self.
Allow your body to relax and just be in the moment, whether you are out in nature or just by on open fire, relax, take time out as we get ready to move forward.
Many blessings to you all, Bernadette Mac
20th October 2021
Full blood moon in Aries.
Last night's full moon... and how do you feel around it and what to expect?
For some, it was emotional, others physical, feeling it in the body, mind and soul. A shift of energy for the better as the full moons can bring things to a head.
Maybe things that have been swept under the carpet. Things that need to be aired and need to be seen ?
Some may have been working with the shadow self and it is a perfect time to do so.
A time to dust things off.
As we are still in this energy of this full moon, the hunter's moon and blood moon, look at what patterns we are still doing ?
The full moon is a great opportunity to let go and bring healing and change into our lives, we deal with old ways of habits we don't want anymore.
As the moon is a blood moon the colour red brings me to the base chakra, the root. It is about grounding yourself as we work through whatever is needed around this full moon. Maybe wear the colour red or put it around your home, place of work. It will help not only with grounding but healing in your space and surrounding area. Light a red candle but most of all listen to your gut, your inner voice and guidance. Take time to press the pause button
in your life and wait and find balance, stay strong, and staying in
your personal space and also remember to do the same for others.
Take this time to ask:
Do I feel compassionate ?
Do I feel alive?
Is my fire burning?
How can I illuminate my fire?
Maybe I need to light my candle from someones else's candle or maybe
they need to get a light from mine .... whichever helps and supports all
involved. Do so as we all need to support each other at this time in
As it's a time of Samhain on this full moon, I invite you to light
your candle of your soul brighter, support each other, so all who need
it will see our light and we can illuminate the way, so others can
follow but not attach themself to you or you . As I said, respect each
others space and journey, but yet have the feeling of support both ways.
So on this full moon, wear bright colours, light your candle as we
set our intentions for the coming week ahead as I feel the energy of
this full moon is lingering on into the end of next week and the work we
do around it as we come into Samain and All Souls night.
A time to shine brighter as we wear the mask of disguise so loved ones can find their way.
There is change going on in our world and the next, on so many levels. Stay grounded, stay focused.
Healing love and light to each and every one of you on this full moon. May you all be blessed with healing and the magic of all there is at this time of year. Bernadette Mac
1st October 2020
Hi everyone and welcome to this month's full moon in Aries.
A lot is going on this month, on the full moon, so again I like to keep it simple.
Of the information that sits with me is the light of the full moon this month in Aries and how not only high energy but the light of the moon being so so bight, some are saying it is 3D and I can surly feel that for sure.
As it's just after the autumn equinox and the first of October it is for sure settling into the autumn.
I am drawn to the first chakra on this month's full moon and the energy of fire, getting things done, shooting from the hip so to speak, moving forward, action, rebel, movment, speaking up for the self and others.
It is a time of less talk and more action, just like the base chakra, Aries is the first fire sign in the zodiac, the colour of Aries is red, it is the cardinal sign of fire.
The fire energy is very high on this month's full moon along with the brightness too and do believe we had the Northern Lights in our skies. Some of us were lucky to see them. They remind me of rainbows and the seven chakras.
As I mention the base chakra and it being the colour red, fire, I can't help but feel the need to clear all chakras on this full moon starting with Aries, the base, otherwise known as ram.
I do believe there is a chant we can sing up from the base to the head to clear chakras maybe some might try this, this full moon. It's not only good to clear the space around you but also within the body, working with the chakras. What a perfect time to do this on the full moon in Aries, the first fire sign, and the harvest full moon, bringing the divine light into our bodies and surrounding areas, for the higher good of all.
It would sure do no harm to give it a try on this full Aries moon and
the coming days, as soon we will be coming to Samhain, Saturday 31st of
October and ends on the evening of November the 1st. Again the number
one. In the start, getting down the the root of things, healing the
past, present and sending divine light into the future.
I find the new and full moon a great time to reboot, so on this full
moon I invite you to chant, clear your chakras and reboot and it's a
perfect time with ARIES, HARVEST, and DIVINE LIGHT, up to Samhain,
marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter,
13th October 2019
Be silent, for silence is golden, for there is great magic there.
|On this Full Moon, October the 13th 2019, |
the Hunters Full Moon,
lets just keep it simple by bringing healing to yourselves,
so we can bring healing to others.
Connect to the heart rather than the head and just be in the moment.
Be silent, for silence is golden,
for there is great magic there.
Blessings, Bernadette Mac
19th November 2021
Hi everyone! Welcome to some moon magic on the 18 and 19th of November, and this full moon is known as a Beaver moon and Eclipse in Taurus.
So what can this mean for you?
At this time the 2nd last full moon of this year and it is a very strong and powerful full moon. Having said that, with the research I've done around this full moon, all are saying one thing that stood out - get grounded. Go to the woods and ground yourself in the energy of the earth and trees. Allow the energy of mother earth to hold the space for you and be still. Go within rather that without on this full moon, as it is a time of inner work and reflection.
As for some there had been triggers in unfinished business and trauma there seems to be a lot of shadow work going on at the moment for so many people. Be gentle with yourselves. Like the beaver, as we are in the same rythmn as nature and all in mother earth, and remember to be gentle with yourselves if you are working with the shadow.
Ad as I write this I have to add shadow work is not a negative thing. It's very powerful work if done in a safe and gentle way by someone holding the space for you and you doing the same for them, so that we can all heal and shine our light even brighter in the coming months.
there is a shift and a change in our world at the moment, and what can
you do to help others and yourself to find balance at this time?
Go within listen to your heart and be gentle with yourself?
Meditate, ground yourself, go to a yoga class or go for a walk in nature in the woods or by a river or stream?
If you are spending time indoors do something to nurture the body mind and soul by listening to gentle music, salt baths or reading an uplifting book.
maybe you like to cook or get creative at this time of year?
Find grounding in a way that is comfortable for you?
If you are exploring shadow work ask why are you have been triggered talk to a friend you trust about this or a spiritual healer or counsellor if this is so for you?
And ask is there anything you have been called to release during this full moon?
So on this full moon be gentle with yourselves and others. Take time
to be in nature and let the light that is all around us in nature lift
and heal your soul. As this is a very powerful full moon and the energy
is very strong pulling back like the beaver, be still, be in the moment,
and be in love and light and healing full moon blessings to all
30th November 2020
Hi everyone! Welcome to Gemini Lunar Full Moon Eclipse on the 30th of November 2020.
Gemini is the messenger, so a lot of messages coming in for some people at this time. On a deep level a lot of people are feeling the strong energy of this month's full moon - the 2nd last one of the year...
and it sure feels like this full moon is bringing things coming to an end...
but not in the way we want, but in a subtle way... and it's also about TRUTH, and being true to yourselves.
As they say "the truth will set you free" .
Speak your truth.
Stand in your own power.
Listen to the voice deep inside as this is not only your intuition it's your guidance from your Angel, Guides, Higher power, and so on, whomever you talk to or pray to for guidance.
As we sit in silence on this full moon ask yourself:
what now can I let go of that is not serving me, as I go into the birthing with this full moon?
If the feeling of being stuck over the past few months is not lifting with this powerful full moon let the light of the full moon lift your soul to shine. Notice how you feel. Get into your feeling rather than thinking .... and feel love, freedom, gratitude, truth, and communication and healing, and a new way of living.
It's time to ask what new way can I express myself?
Am I in my head too much?
Are my thoughts ones of love or fears?
Now it's a great opportunity, on this full moon, to reset the button so to speak and watch your world change as you not only change your thinking but focusing on your feelings at this time...
feelings of love, freedom, gratitude, truth and communication and
healing, wisdom and your true identity and connection to source.
Become the observer. Get out in nature, feel your feet firmly on the ground as you decide what thoughts you need to turn off.
Are they thoughts of others or mine or a mixture of both?
Use this time and space to let them go. The more space you create the more you experience less noise and more poise,
You will sense when to act and when to stay still at this time.
Meditate. Take a breath. Gemini is an air sign, so it's about the
breath. So breathing is about taking in air and releasing air. Take a
breath tonight as you do your ritual on the full moon and create that
sacred space. Set your intention and don't let your thoughts run on
automatic. If you feel it happen then take a breath and breathe it out.
We cannot not stop that thinking but we can see it... know it's there and decide to let it go.
Meditation tonight is the key and to reset.
When you go out in nature notice the seasons changing, the birds singing, even the dark evenings bring a certain kind of light.
The light of the moon, stars, that gives us connection to the universe, to source, to our guides and higher power as well as below, nature, birds singing, leaves falling, sunsets and sunrise.
So set that space tonight that we need to create to move forward, in this time of birthing, and a shift going on as well. It will also give you a bird's eye view of not allowing thoughts to run your life and come into your own power and shine.
As you do this tonight remember to also make it a daily practice. Little by little you will begin to notice the shift as you do this. The inner world changes and so too the outer ..
so key words are,
love, freedom, gratitude, truth, COMMUNICATION and HEALING, new way of thinking and feeling, wisdom, true Identity and connection to source.
So on this Gemini Lunar Full Moon the 30th of November I wish you many blessings and ....
May the Truth Set You Free.
Love light to you all and i wish you all the best for the highest good. Bernadette Mac.
Written early morning, Saturday 28th November 2020.
Hi everyone, welcome to a little bit of moon magic.
I felt guided to write a piece as we approach this very powerful full moon. It is a lunar Eclipse and in Gemini on the 30th of November also known as a Cold and Beaver full moon.
I invite you, over the next few days, as we come up to this full moon, 3 days from now, to prepare for a birthing of new. The energy of this full moon is about moving forward. Getting this done, some of you may have been feeling stuck and asking the question:
who am I?
why am I here?
how can I make a difference?
Write down what it is you would like to manifest in your life.
Not only is this a very powerful full moon but the Winter Solstice and Christmas is also getting close.
Another way of setting intentions is to paint a picture, make a memory board, get creative.
As I was out walking late this evening, as the moon was coming out, the fog began to rise. I noticed some kids coming home from secondary school. Most of them were wearing masks. I thought to myself is this the new norm in which the whole world is in this together? Again, all in the same boats, and I wondered did anyone ask that question...
Is this the new norm? each and everyone is looking out for each other staying safe and been mindful.
It's very easy to get disconnected.
New moons and full moons are a great way of getting back on track, as well as meditation and being out in nature. So be mindful of this full moon coming up over the next few days.
The 30th feels like the end of the energy that has been unsettled and confusing for some and a feeling of being stuck and asking inner questions of the self and your journey.
Lots of healing is very much needed as we come to the full moon on Monday. Be gentle with yourself looking forward to the Winter Solstice, Christmas and of course the New Year.
So, see how you feel over the next few days and if there are still issues you need to let go of.
I feel in my life, over the past few weeks and days, a birthing is
coming on the 30th. So I will write some more on the night of the full
A lot can change in a moment. Be kind to yourself and others.
Until Monday, blessings and healing to you all. Bernadette Mac
12th November 2019
Hi Everyone, Welcome to a little bit of Moon Magic on this Full Moon the 12th of
November the Beaver Full Moon, and the Full Moon is in Taurus, a time of
release and let go in preparation for the coming month ahead.
Are there still some old issues you need to let go of ???
This Full Moon is a great opportunity for doing just that.
On the last Full Moon, on October the 13th, I posted to just keep it simple, connect to the heart and quiet the mind.
This Full Moon I invite you to do the same as the Full Moon is a busy
one, as the moon is in Taurus together with the Beaver, both being an
animal to get things done and both very grounding.
- Are there things you know you need to get done?
- Do you feel you're going 10 steps forward only to go 20 back?
Not to worry, for there is great learning and realising at this time.
Again keep it in the moment or the day.
Sometimes things happen for a reason when we feel like this and don't see the woods for the trees, only to know in the end, when we look back, it was all meant to be.
This is a time of old relationships to be healed. Forgive others so we can move on... and set healthy boundaries and also be gentle with the self.
|Last year was the first Full Moon Magic I posted for Tara Celebrations and it was a Beaver Full Moon on the 23rd of November and it fell on Thanksgiving Day.|
Losing the light of our sun as the evenings now draw darker, as we
prepare for the Winter season, bringing the warmth of the fire into our
homes, I invite you to reflect on the past year.
- What have you achieved?
- What have you let go of?
- What big or little changes did you make in your life? maybe a new job, home, relationship, etc. etc. etc.?
- Who did you forgive, make amends to? or maybe you forgave yourself ?
As you ponder on these questions ask yourself what am I grateful for and blessed to have in my life right now?
As you do this bring your thoughts to the moment and ask have I really taken 20 steps back?
Have all the ups and downs been you inner guidance, helping you along your path?
There is no right or wrong way when you let go and trust all works
out. It can be quite hard to see that at the time or even let go but we
do it anyway, sometimes without even knowing it.
So on this Full Moon:
May you be blessed with love light and healing.
May your light shine brightly on these dark Winter nights.
May you know that the light will shine again as the day of the Winter Solstice draws near.
Full Moon blessings, Bernadette Mac
23rd November 2018
|In some traditions the full moon this month is called Beaver Moon and falls on U.S. Thanksgiving Day.|
So let us pause for a moment as you read this and ask ' What is it today I'm truly blessed with? '
And ' What blessings am I asking for as the Winter months are upon us? '
The Beaver is busy building his home to keep warm for the winter, among many animals andhumans at this time of year.
As the evenings are darker we light our homes brightly inside with a beautiful fire burning.
As we lose the light on the outside we still have it on the inside.
It is a time of deep reflection and change.
So what blessings are you asking for as we draw within?
I invite you to sit quietly and listen to your inner being, let it guide you.
Knowing that the light will shine again on our days as the Winter
Solstice draws near, may you be all blessed with magic on this November
shin shin, Bernadette.
Hi everyone! welcome to the full snow moon. The full moon is a great time for setting intentions in your life and it's coming up in the winter solstice, Christmas, and end of the year.
As this is the last full moon of the year ask yourself the question.
What do you need to let go of?
What is it I need to bring about in my life that bring more balance and healing?
Where do you draw the line between your spiritual and logical /society acceptable self?
How do you find intimate or mentally stimulating connections outside of a romantic relationship?
When in your life do you feel most creative?
What I find very helpful for me on a full moon is to draw a circle on a blank page and write in the centre my intentions, and on the outside of the circle what I want to release and let go of.
So maybe tonight doing this may help you also and to do this with a short meditation and to burn the paper in the fire when you are done or at another time when you feel ready maybe on the winter solstice as the sun rises or sunset.
Many blessings to you all on this full snow moon. Love, light and healing. Bernadette Mac
Photo was taken a week ago in Poland of the snow sent by a friend. The moon is from last year. And hopefully tonight's sky will be clear for a photo. Many blessings, Bernadette

And the Full Moon brought in the snow in Ireland and England.
Bernadette took a photo of the Full Moon and woke the following morning to snow. Also thanks to Louise for these photographs of the Peak District 31st December 2020.

Hi Everone. Welcome to the 3rd night of the full moon in Cancer. In
some places it's on the 30th. So, knowing that, you can choose which
night you would like to set new intentions for the New Year to come or
would like to do both and let the energy settle in the soul and your goals, dreams and desires for the year ahead.
As it's the last full moon of the year, and this December's full moon reaches it's peak just before the new year, it is a perfect time to do a ritual and healing meditation around this moon cycle.
It's also known as the Cold moon and Wolf moon. With it already bringing a meteor shower, a solar eclipse, and great conjunction, Winter Soltice, and Christmas, it's been a busy month for sure. As the strangest, hardest year in recent memory comes to a close, we are anxious to hit the reset button. We have one final event and it's this full Cold moon in Cancer - the last full moon of the year - and it's going to light up our sky this week.
As the moon lights up the sky bring in the light to the self.
Focus on your letter to the self you have written, if you have done one.
Glimpse briefly on the year gone by, and how fast that year has gone by! What big or small changes you have made to your life? and yes, we are all in hope for a better year to come.
On this full moon the astrologers talk about two waves of galactic energy happening in our solar system. A high vibration they say and they ask that you lift your vibration with this in mind, setting your intentions with this in mind can make a great difference to all there is and this big shift.
Let go of fear, replace it with love.
Let go of all negative thoughts and self-doubt and replace it with hope, harmony and healing.
So you are being asked to choose all that is good for you on this full moon.
Replace the fear with trust.
What do you believe?
Do you believe in divine force in all life?
Do you believe you are being guided by a higher power?
Do you believe your prayers are being heard and answered?
If you are in fear ask yourself what is the best way to confront it.
Yes, trust everything will be ok. We don't always believe, so look at your beliefs and trust on this full moon and this new energy coming in on a wave of divine love.
I invite you all tonight, on this last full moon of the year, to let
go of all that no longer serves you. Just let it go, so you can make
room for the new to come in, the birth of the new you.
Now bring your focus on your letter to the self. You may wish to burn
it on the full moon or maybe you might go out and post this letter to
yourself to help you remember who you truly are ...
or maybe you might want to write a new letter tonight.
On this full moon, that is coming in with these waves of divine light and energy and upgrading your body, mind, and soul, to the intentions you have asked for in this new year to come....
Again ask yourself one more time .... WHAT DO I BELIEVE?
LISTEN TO THE HEART .... INNER VOICE ....
And one way to key into this is your birth promise, or the many promises you made to yourself down through the years or this year. Only you tonight can know what it is you want to achieve and manifest, what you want to let go of and what you believe.
Use this last full moon of the year to let go and to welcome the new year to come - 2021. Let your soul speak to you from a place of true love and healing.
Focus on this beautiful wave of light tonight, a cosmic wave, and yes, we are already in it since the 9th of December.
With all that has been going on and off the planet over the past 12 months now come into the heart and soul and most of all trust.
May you all be blessed on this full moon, may all your dreams come true. Connect to the inner self and guides, stay grounded, focussed, believe and trust.
Many blessings, Bernadette Mac
Now we can change a few words here people... Jupiter aligns with Saturn.....
28th December 2020
Hi Everyone, welcome to day 2 on the preparation for the last full moon of the year, known as the Cold moon and it's in Cancer.
To close out 2020 in a deep and emotionally connective way and a very powerful one for sure, the full moon is a great way of reconnection with the self and setting new intentions and letting go of what no longer serves us. So tonight I invite you to take a glimpse back on 2020 and write down things you have learned since springtime when the world stood still and we were all on a journey together.
Just at the Sping Equinox, as things began to grow, the days were getting brighter, we had a pandemic.
For me looking back, the lockdown was one of how things were not important and family was.
Gratitude was one thing I surely learned along with learning to do stuff around my home I never knew I could do. I revamped the garden and upcycled old furniture and lots more.
I had feelings of concern and also love. Like many others, we all prayed and worked together as one, for each other and definitely a new way of living and doing things.
This last full moon is one of reflection before we go into the New Year and letting go of the old as we are now finding yourselves in a new way of living.
Ask yourself "how have you changed?" "how have you grown?" and bring yourself back to January 2020...
We also had the full moon in Cancer and it was on eclipse. So this year we had the full moon twice in Cancer so we started in Cancer and we are also ending in Cancer.
Also this year we had so many lunar, solar eclipses. The energies were very high also on a spiritual level. So tonight dig deep, deep self mothering, deep self nurturing.
Set healthy boundaries.
Write a letter to yourself as if you are writing a letter to your best
friend. What would it say? how would it sound? how do you feel writing
this letter to the self?
This letter is a private thing between you and source, guides and angels whomever you tap into as your higher power. When you are done with not only writing a letter to the self but also writing the things you are letting go of and the new intentions you are setting for the year to come, put it near your candle tonight, in an envelope, and just be in the moment. Focus on the flame, breath it in, and just be.
Blessings to you all tonight, Bernadette

Hi everyone and welcome to some moon magic as the full moon is on the 29th, and in some places the 30th, of December.
I felt guided to post today to get ready for not only the full moon
but the shift that is also taking place over the next few days or since
before the winter solstice. Some astrologers are saying this shift
started on the 9th of December and the earth is moving through some
A guy called Rory Duff, I found fascinating when I looked him up. Without getting too much into him for the moment, but he does talk about the energy of this full moon in Cancer 2020 and the effects of it. And he talks about the earth going through this galactic current sheet and how this happens every 12 thousands years and 2 waves of energy coming in.
|This photo of the moon was taken by myself on Christmas Eve 2020.|
So let's get back to the energy and shifts that are taking place
during this last full moon of the year, known as the Cold moon, the Long
Night moon or the Oak full moon.
It is just around the corner and with it waves of new energy pouring into the earth and they are saying this new energy is upgrading our DNA... mm... I thought that is very interesting and hope you find in this information the same feeling I got of new coming in and our vibration being lifted to higher energy while being very grounded at the same time.
So starting tonight, as we prepare for the last full moon of the year, and it's in Cancer, and the new wave of energy, just focus on lighting a candle. Be quiet, sit in silence and just be go within and be gentle with yourself.
I invite you to light this candle at 8pm tonight with the feeling of harmony, love, focus on the heart and the soul and feel the fire of your heart burn brightly and your soul fill with pure golden light.
Feel and think all good thoughts as you light this candle, as Cancer is all about emotions and emotions are very high at the moment in our world.
So bring the focus to the here and now. As you light this candle be in the moment. Hold your hand to your heart, feel the healing coming in and light all around your home, your family, your body, mind and soul.
Do this tonight as you get ready for this new energy coming in and the old energy leaving,
Blessings to you all tonight, Bernadette Mac
12th December 2019
Hi Everyone! welcome to some Moon Magic on this Full Moon December
the 12th 2019, the last Full Moon of the year and close to the Winter
Solstice and Christmas Day.
It's also in Gemini meteor showers as well, so there is so much going on around the Full Moon this month.
So again I will keep it simple as we find ourselves coming to the end of another year.
12 Full Moons later have you achieved your goals and dreams or did
you find that things took a different path for you? what you have
planned did not happen? things getting cancelled at the last minute?
Have you noticed family and friends are not running around this Christmas in the mad rush to buy gifts?
I can only speak for myself, that there is a feeling of calm and no
panic this year and more focus on the real value of being around family,
friends, and out in nature, finding time to reconnect, only to see all
was meant to be.
We can still have our dreams, goals and desires. Life has a way of
bringing it to us in away we would never have thought, so trust and
watch the magic happen.
The one thing I love about the Full Moon is on a clear sky when you can see it shining along with the stars.
It can stir up a well of emotions and memories we thought we had
forgotten. It's amazing how nature can do this... like the Full Moon,
the rising and setting of the sun, our oceans, and mountains and the
So I invite you, on this last Full Moon, to simply connect to the
self. Give yourself the gift of self care and love. In doing this we can
share with others, for there is no better gift on this last Full Moon
Look up at the sky over the next few nights, remember all those who
shared these magic moments from the past, who are no longer with us, and
remember to pass on the gift of love to our next generation as we now
approach into a New Year.
May you have a blessed Full Moon, Bernadette Mac
What a rare moment of the moon joining the statue of Jesus in Rio De Janeiro...
22nd December 2018
A full moon blessing to all tonight,
one day after the solstice night.
As we come to the end of the year
remember your friends from far and near.
As we reflect on the months and weeks that past,
send all your blessings from deep in your heart.
Blessings to all on this full moon night,
and remember you are love and light.
21st December - Winter Solstice
- there is an element of magic in our urban life style......
As we approach the full moon on Saturday there is a great feeling of knowing, deep in the soul, of the new and creativity, of old ways being remembered, being reborn.
Creativity has great therapy and healing.
Our Ancestors knew that. Remember who you are. Blessings, healing and gratitude.
It is the last full moon of the year... maybe a time of letting go, moving forward into the new. It is happening one day after the Winter Solstice, the lunar cycle and nearly the end of the year. It is also known as the Full Cold Moon.
So what blessings are you thankful for as you reflect the new you wish to apply in the coming year?
I will be posting the blessings on the 22nd of December and with that in mind this week gives you time to sit with yourself and remember, reflect and let go...
|As we approach the full moon blessings on the 22nd of December, pause for a moment and reflect on what blessings you wish to ask for at this |
