May Full Moon

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

Some possible themes:
*Moments of exquisite aliveness, realizing the magic that's all around us everyday.
*A greater appreciation for the diverse species we share the planet with.
*A growing global connection, as people band together for a unified response to societal/environmental/economic change.
*More hidden truths revealed, with networks of people making/sharing the news and facts on the ground.

Full moon blessings to all!

The super hot spell is gone, and now it is cool, windy, and gray. This is the weirdest weather. Thanks for the wonderful comments.

Lovely full moon post, there are a lot of changes afoot, plenty of lessons to learn, and justice to go around. Saggitarius rules higher education and learning, as well as justice. Here's to learning our lessons and creating a more just existence. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Great post it was too cloudy here to see her, but the night before she was beautiful, glowing orange as she rose up. Hope your weekend was warm x x x

This month I wasn't in the right mood/vibe for fully enjoy the full moon (pardon the pun! LOL), as you know... I'll try to in June, though. Performing a simple esbat to restore the soul! :o)

Thank you for your caring words, Rue.

Kisses and love from us.
