Hey hey, did I get your attention!!!!???!!
Nothing like a bit of juvenile humour to start off a Monday….So how was the full moon for you on Saturday? I definitely get in the mood to finish stuff and clean and chuck things out and do things that I’ve been meaning to do for a while when it’s the full moon. This weekend we pared down on some household bits and bobs, got rid of books we’ll never read again, and went through some old papers. I love doing this, it’s such a feeling of liberation! The stuff you accumulate, especially with a baby, can get really out of hand! And with such a small flat we really need to keep it under control. So out it went!
My heart also races more quickly than usual around the full moon, and Jamie definitely sleeps worse, but hey that’s hardly noticeable!! Ha ha! Anyway I’ve always loved the moon, its role in Paganism, its relation to the sea, and the stages of a woman’s life. One of my only regrets in life is not buying a beautiful painting in Cornwall of the full moon reflected on the sea. It felt like too much money to pay at the time, and I’ve missed it ever since, which has been about 20 years! My dear friend Gez almost made up for it by painting me a replica, which was lovely but not the same. Ho hum, it’s cerainly true for me at least that it’s the things you don’t do that you regret rather than the things you do do…
I made the moon calendar above showing the new and full moons of 2013, so I can keep track of my life in relation to the phases of the moon. A VERY good source of information is the farmers’ almanac, which I shall be checking often. Did you know January’s full moon name is Wolf Moon? Love it! Happy Monday!
