An Amber Moon...

.... for ambermoggie. Her patch of sky has been covered with cloud all month, so how could I resist posting this... hope this compensates a little, amber! (oh... take a peek here for a few more of this months moon photos!)


For so many of us the Moon is much more than a pretty bright object in the sky. We seek her out & miss her when she is not there... we honour her rhythms that affect us so... and seek her help in understanding ourselves. Watching her cycles is a clue to the changing rhythms of our moods, creativity & energy that pulse with the music of our Universe. If you haven't taken notice before, try noting the phase of the moon when different energy levels hit you... see if there is a pattern there. Being able to recognise the fluctuations, and being aware of when & how they affect you can make such a difference.

I no longer worry when I don't feel like creating artwork when the moon reaches its last quarter... i tend to ponder & write more intuitively at dark moon... and as the moon waxes past the first quarter, from half to full, ideas come thick & fast... if i'm going to be 'upsettable' its likely to be at new moon. Not always, & we are all different, but  a little understanding goes a long way! 

This site is great for checking moonrise & moonset times....
& skywatch friday has great skies from around the world.

I always love photos of the moon, especially when they have that little wisp of cloud!

Moon shots are so difficult to capture, and yours is terrific. Amazing that you are half way around the world from me, and we got the same image. I like the dark cloud effect to.
Have a great week-end, and thanks for stopping by.

S - Thanks for sharing. As others have intimated it makes one feel a sense of joinedupness when we realise we can be poles apart but sharing such wonder. A few days ago we had a great moon set - shining through our large glass doors into the bedroom at 4am. Wonder. B
