SUPERMOON, Saturday 19 March 2011

19 Mar

On my evening walk last night, I took a mental photo of the sublime moon shining in the dark blue sky. Soft grey clouds floated over it, hiding it from view in the first few minutes of my promenade. Then slowly, they descended, like a silk chemise falling down, revealing an exquisite body underneath. The moon glowed, lighting up the sky around it. I started at it, hypnotised.  With its magnetic force, it drew not only me, but water, earth and air, towards it. Its majestic reign over the evening sky was like a queen’s calm gaze over her devotees. Despite being distant, the moon has strong, but subtle power over us; although it seems disengaged from the world, the moon is completely connected to us. I looked at this mysterious goddess in the sky and, despite knowing that I would never fathom this ethereal creation, I was grateful for being able to appreciate its beauty.

Tonight, 19 March 2011, will be the first “supermoon” – a full moon when it is the closest to the earth – in nineteen years. Be sure to take time to look at the night sky and make the most of this extraordinary event. And if your camera is as good as this one, please send me a photo!

    You know, I actually have a crescent moon tattoo on my arm, have had it for twenty years now, and I originally got it precisely to remind me of our connection to the moon, and even to this day, it is to me a daily reminder of how we all, and women especially, are connected to the moon.

      That is beautiful. You are right about us, and women in particular, being linked to the moon. I have so much to say on this topic, I may have to make it a whole post of its own 🙂
