May's "Flower" or "Hare" full moon is upon us, and while the East coast is getting super-hot spells, we in the West are chilly under a rather constant haze of cloud and rain. This does have some positive results for us locals though - it greatly increases our water sheds and keeps the mountains green and verdant for a while longer, staving off the inevitable dry spells and risk of wildfires. It's not so great for our tourism trade though. At any rate, I'll be putting on my woolies to brave the rain tonight and head to a cathedral-type building at one of the local lakes, where there is a woman doing a crystal bowl meditation for the full moon. Mary at Moontides has a great take on the moon in Sagittarius this month, and there is also a nice little article at About.com.
