Receiving the Moon’s Light: (for women)
The Priestess receiving the Full Moon, will need an assistant. The assistant will require a silver disk, smooth and highly polished. If absolutely necessary, a small hand mirror may be used in its place. The Priestess will stand or kneel before the altar, with her head bowed down. The assistant will part her hair at the base of the skull, using water or oil to help separate the hair, if it is short.
While the priestess visualizes the form of the Goddess merging from behind, into her own form, the assistant will reflect the Moon’s light upon the base of the skull, using the silver disk. You will find that this is quite difficult in city light pollution, and works best in a country setting, or a desert.
Once the Priestess receives the Moon she can channel it into the Moon bowl, or she can “store” it within her Being for seven days. This light is pure Lunar energy, and can be “impregnated” with whatever “thoughtform” the priestess desires.
Receiving the Moon’s light: (for women without assistance)
There are several ways for a woman to receive the Moon’s Light, without any assistant. The technique I gave in this subject note, is just one of the magical techniques. The Moon may also be received in a religious setting (no magic intended, just a blessing or a union with Deity). In these modern times, you can set up a mirror behind you, and angle it so that it reflects down upon you, if you desire to try the magical technique.
One of the old ways of non-magical union, was for the woman to lay nude beneath the Full Moon in the Full Moon Goddess Posture. This posture is also referred to as the Star Goddess Posture, and is an X formation, arms and legs spread out wide. The woman anoints herself with an oil of the Moon, just below her navel (forming a crescent with the oil). As she lays upon the earth, she will look up into the Moon, and slowly draw in the muscles of her abdomen, as she mentally pictures that she is drawing down the light of the Moon, into herself. Just as men draw power into themselves through the solar plexus, a woman draws power into herself through the navel region(“pit of the stomach” kind of thing. This is the center of a woman). This is just one method, but it can be a powerful experience.
