Annual Moon Cycle - Lalanna

Moon of Creation - The first time she sees the moon is a wonderful experience...

Lady moon, silver white, lighting our dark hours, you hold in your waxing horn the anticipation, hope, potential and belief that as you change you will grow in fullness. Within that promise there is also the wisdom that when the circle is complete it will unwind and transform into another. Thank you for the blessing your bring in revealing this cycle to us.

Moon of Beauty – the second visit to the moon fills her heart with its beautiful form…

Beautiful moon, whose light shines across the starry sky, please help me to shine like you. Teach me how to laugh, to cry, to live and be within the cosmos. Beautiful moon shining through the night, may I reach your depth of wisdom, sharing my light over the land and sky. Take my love and do what you will, my heart is full of wonder at your light, so calm, so still, so powerful yet so undemanding.

Moon of Joy – the earth is fresh and active the third time Lalanna talks to the moon…

Lady moon, in spring when the plants are making new growth, I see the buds and leaves unfurl after their winter rest. Please help me to recognise when it is suitable time in my life to use energy for new growth. May your light guide me to grasp the opportunities offered so that I can expand in new directions and in new ways.

Moon of Tranquillity – the fourth moon is shining brightly.

Dear lady moon, your light, although it is large and round, is always gentle, even at its greatest moment. Please help me to be like the full moon, never bring too loud or overwhelming, yet strong enough to fulfil my purpose and warm those that I touch.

Moon of Exuberance – It is high summer and Lalanna looks at the moon in July. She feels full of energy and life…

Lady moon, thank you. Your rays enliven the earth; bring the blossoms to fullness, energy to the air. Help me lady moon to take the opportunities of the full times of life.

Moon Overwhelmed – Lalanna notices the sixth moon in the earthly afternoon while the sun is still in the sky. It reflects a sun-tanned face, eyes tired from squinting in the brightness of the sun.

Sometimes the fierceness of the noon sun can be too strong. We seek shade and shelter from the hot beams of light that parch the crops. Please help us how to live in the world at those times when it is so hot that we want to run away and hide in a dark place. Teach us how to live in the glare of life as well as in the gentler easier times.

Moon of Love – Lalanna looks at the moon with contentment and respect. She smiles…

Lady moon, when plants are flourishing I see the blossoms and foliage full of vigour, luxuriant in the beauty of your light. Please help me to realise when it is a suitable time in my life to express the powerful strength of a full heart and active love.

Moon of Wisdom – On Lalanna’s eighth visit it is harvest time. She remembers her previous visits…

Oh, lady moon, we give thanks to you tonight for sharing your wisdom with us. Please help us to receive that wisdom with honour of the givers, in our thoughts and actions to use and not waste the gifts we are given at this time, to go peacefully and straight in our connections as we bring that wisdom into our lives and share it with all our relations.

Moon of Peace – Lalanna is busy with her sisters preparing for the winter and now most of the stores are laid in and she goes out to talk to the moon…

Lady moon, as we prepare for new ventures, changes and growth, help us to learn from those times that we need to create safe, peaceful, nurturing foundations and strong supports in our lives. It is wise to sped time, effort and energy in attending to the basic needs of survival before we can expand and develop into full maturity, for we shall often need a comfortably familiar place to return to as we go our and explore the world.

Moon of Reflection – In the light of the moon Lalanna notices her first grey hair…

Oh, lady moon, in being on this earth we age and grow. Please help us to do this with dignity and courage. Please help us to share with our friends both near and far the wonderful times we experience as we move through the world. Thank you lady moon for the wonderful nurturing and abundance we encounter in our lives.

Moon of Generosity – Oona asks Lalanna why she talks to the moon; after all it is only a circular dish that needs cleaning every day…

When we gaze at the moon we see its beauty from our perspective. Please help us to understand that another will see a different moon, from another perspective, but that we all have a different experience when we see the same moon. Each has its value; each has potential for wisdom, growth and beauty. Thank you for showing us your many faces and for showing many others to all beings.

Moon of Honesty – It is a very difficult day. The sisters are arguing and not talking to each other. Lalanna goes out to avoid the unpleasant atmosphere…

Tossed and thrown through the sky on stormy nights, hidden by rolling dark clouds, your light appears as a pale glow revealed through a haze. Our emotions toss and throw us through life, sending our beings into vortex and whirlpool of darkness from which there appears no escape. We are suddenly weeping and crying in a state of anger, fear and frustration. Please help us not to be afraid of emotions but to experience them in their turbulence.

13th moon – it is a cold night and Lalanna wears a warm woollen coat in the dark frosty night…

Oh, lady moon, as you enliven the night, as all our relations sleep or rest after the day’s activities, please help me to recognise these times of transition. Some will retreat to dark places for the daytime, whilst others will busy themselves in the sun’s light. Help me to understand that their actions are right for them and not to judge that living in the light or living in the darkness is the right way to be. That we are all on our own path and do what we need to do to live on the earth.
