Time of the Vine Moon

September 5 to 29 was known in Celtic lore as the time of the Vine Moon. Pictures of grape vines were drawn on garden walls as a symbol to promote fertility in one’s garden.  A common use for vines was to heal burns. The wound was dressed in leaves soaked in spring water.  Each leaf had to be dipped three times to make it effective.  Intoxication from wine was thought to be the possession of one’s self by the spirit of the vine.  It was also used in the fairy realm to reach a deeper level of consciousness.
