Hunter’s Moon, Falling Leaf Moon or Blood Moon are other names for the full moon that takes place on October 5, 2017. As this full moon occurs before October 23rd, the sun in Libra will produce a full Fire Moon in Aires. This moon will reach its peak at 2:40 PM EDT on October 5, so you can perform any spells and rituals on the evening of October 4th and leave your tools to charge overnight.
Also, this is the last full moon prior to October 31st, so you should cleanse and recharge your tools to ready them for the festival of Samhain.
A full fire moon in Aires is an ideal time for spells promoting boldness and self-assurance. If you need one, my book Simple Wiccan Magick Full Moon Spells & Rituals has a spell for promoting enthusiasm, which may give you the confidence to try new things and take advantage of interesting opportunities. It also contains seasonal recipes for every full moon.
Flowers: Calendula and Marigold
Stones: Morganite or pink Emerald, Opals and Tourmaline.
