A reader writes in asking, "I want to do a full moon ritual this month, but it's getting really cold. Will the ritual still be effective if I do it inside?" Another reader asks, "If I'm doing a full moon rite outside and the clouds cover the moon, should I start over again?"
The short answers to those are yes and no. Yes, your ritual will still be effective if you do it inside. No, you don't have to start over if the moon goes behind a cloud. Here's why:
Just because you can't see the moon doesn't mean it's not there, or that it's no longer full. You're basing your working or ritual on the energy of the full moon, and that never changes -- whether you can see it or not.
