Big Spirit Moon is a time to reflect upon the healing powers of the universe and create our own vision of the truth. It’s the thirteenth teaching from Grandmother Moon in Anishinaabe tradition that views the moon as a living relation who makes 13 appearances throughout the year to watch over Mother Earth’s children and light their paths with her gentle wisdom. The 13th moon marks the beginning of a long spiritual journey to contemplate the universal knowledge we have received, and how to apply it to our individual roles and life circumstances. Like the mother and her child that is being purified by a feather, each one of us must discover our personal truth to live our greatest ideal for the benefit of our family and community.

Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon behind a leafless tree. A man stands to the left, gazing down the Red Road in quiet contemplation, his pipe at the ready to carry his prayers to the Great Spirit. The feather headdress reveals he has been honoured for four separate achievements, and the strands of hair that flow from his face are symbolic of his connection to the web of life as a sacred part of creation. The vibrantly coloured shapes within his silhouette are a signature design element in Anishinaabe art and represent the universal life force that animates all things.
