A peregrine falcon flies in the bright light of the Sanguine
moon, otherwise known as
Blood or Hunterís
moon. This is the moon following the Harvest moon and closest to the autumn equinox, it may really be just a gentler name for Blood moon, so named for its closeness to the third harvest of the year, the blood one of Samhain.
A Peregrine is no night hunter though, even though this is one of the brightest nights of the year, and what is Pagan about it, why paint it?
Now that association with Witchcraft stays secret!
The next Sanguine moon is October 27th 2015
