Moon Magic

Tonight is the Supermoon, the biggest moon of the year.  Last week I took this shot of the half moon, mainly because it seems every time I want to capture something celestial, the clouds appear out of nowhere and ruin the view, though perhaps not tonight since it's been clear and hot all day. The Perseid meteor showers begin as well, so I'll pretty much be spending most of my evening outside. Living on a mountain with no lights or neighbors has its perks, for sure.

In pagan lore, standing in the glow of a full moon, three months in a row, while imagining true love...will bring it into your life. This would be a perfect moon to start such a enchantment. Throw your arms wide, lift your face to the night sky, and open yourself to the possibilities, dear readers.

The sun bakes and burns, a merciless but necessary evil, but the moon...ah, the moon. Soft, gentle, empowering. And always beguiling...


  1. "The moon will never lie to anyone. Be like the moon. No one hates the moon or wants to kill it. The moon does not take antidepressants and never gets sent to prison. The moon never shot a guy in the face and ran away. The moon has been around a long time and has never tried to rip anyone off. The moon does not care who you want to touch or what color you are. The moon treats everyone the same. The moon never tries to get in on the guest list or use your name to impress others. Be like the moon. When others insult and belittle in an attempt to elevate themselves, the moon sits passively and watches, never lowering itself to anything weak. The moon is beautiful and bright. It needs no makeup to look beautiful. The moon never shoves clouds out its way so it can be seen. The moon needs not fame or money to be powerful. The moon never asks you to go to war to defend it. Be like the moon."-Henry Rollins Solipsist

    Dragons slithering across the night sky block out the moon tonight. It's supposed to dry out the next few days. Tuesday, the Perseids peak and we mean to be up top of Loveland to see them.

    Lovely photograph there. I dig the way you got the craters.

    1. Love the moon words! And how cool to see the meteors flash across the roof of the world... ;D

      Thanks...about the photo. It appears to be the only shot I'll get--more on that tomorrow. Much cursing has ensued this evening...
