TONIGHT is the Cancer New Moon, the Adonis Moon of Antinous honouring our spouses, partners and significant others.
From the start, Antinous has always been identified with Adonis, as with the breath-taking Farnese statue of Antinous/Adonis at right.
Every New Moon my love Soman and I write down our intentions and aspirations for the coming moon phase.
We stand under the moon and read an incantation over them asking for the blessing of the goddess.
We then place them under the pillows we sleep on until the next Full Moon ... in two weeks' time.
Then we read an incantation of thanks and offering while burning the intentions in a cauldron. I then soak the ashes in water and sprinkle them around the base of our roses.
Our intentions almost always come true and our roses are magnificent. Last year, one orange rose was still flowering in mid November!
So tonight might be a very good night to start such a cycle for yourselves folks!
Love and Moon Light
