Storyteller, the sixth full moon, begins tonight. She is the seer of speaking the truth. The natural world is alive with song. All we have to do is be open to listen. We may even become a discerning enough listener and seer to ask questions and be confident that the answers will come. This, however, is a disciplined practice of routinely going into the silence.
This moon also reminds me of the six. I was taught that the number six represents all of our ancestors beginning with the Grandparents. When we call out to them in personal ceremony we may say, “All of Our Ancestors Who Have Loved Us Since Always”. I love this shout out. It’s beautiful.
When we honor the spiritual aspect of our human ancestry (the individuals who trekked and endured and brought change, so that we may have an enriched life experience because of their wisdom), I feel heartened. This is what the Medicine Chiefs, our philosophical/spiritual leaders, try to teach us. They want us to learn about our own symbolic language–how we interacted with what is real and tangible on the Good Red Road of Life.
