Feast Your Eyes on the Harvest Moon!
I love watching the cycles happen and was provided the opportunity to watch 2 full cycles during the quarantine. I have always been locked in to the moon for some reason. I am a Sagittarius born at 12:17 on 12/19/1963. If anyone has input as to why, I would love to hear it .
GRAND RISING GEORGE, TRY USING TimePassages mobile app for more detailed information on yourself! Its an amazing ride of self exploration! Good luck in your search!!
ITS PROBABLY BECAUSE OF THE SHRINKYDINK PHASE THAT CAUSES THE MOON TO BE OUT OF ALIGNMENT FOR YOU. THE CURRENT CONDITION IS A GOOD CONDITION FOR ITS CURRENT SET OF CONDITIONS
Three beautiful full moons coming-up, Corn Moon, Harvest Moon and Hunter's Moon, here in the Ohio Valley. Just lovely.
Feel so lucky to live in the gorgeous Catalina Mountains in Oro Valley AZ. The moon coming up over these mountains is beyond breathtaking. I can't stop watching, want to sit all nite taking in such a glorious sight. So still, so erie, so peaceful, and always amazed at the brightness of the full moon and the shadows it creates. It is beautiful and bittersweet at the same time. I always think how nature will in the end endure, despite all the havoc we are wreaking to our planet.
Not sure how or why this is but when it is a full moon or close to it I always feel a lot happier, optimistic, positive, refreshed etc. Full moons do for whatever reason improve my mental state. Don't know why. I'm sure it has to do with something
The full moons always make me happy too. I love the Native Americans names for the moons!! So suiting. I love the fall moons most of all!!!
It had to have been a wonderful time back then, when there were no headlights or flashlights, floodlights or streetlights. The only lights were the moon and the stars, and fires if you made one.
People must have just marveled at the night skies, and they did, to the point of being able to tell there was something different about some of the illuminated objects. How many nights observing the planet Venus (they had no idea that it was a planet, but they figured out that it was the same object every night, and paddled out to an island to view it when it was very low in the sky) how many generations of Mayans, watching the night sky, did it take for them to create their calendar.
Places like Stonehenge and other prehistoric monoliths were all created based on the sun and moon and stars. The darkness put people together (for safety), the stories of the night skies brought and kept them together, all these artificial lights allowed them to wander apart.
Google "pale blue dot" sometime, to see what life-forms "out there" see of our planet.
I was born on the Autumnal Equinox, 60 years ago this year, and up until tonight I have always heard the September full moon called the Full Barley Moon, never the Corn Moon. Didn't the native Americans call what Europeans called corn, maize? It doesn't really matter what anyone else wants to call it, it will always be the Full Barley moon to me.
One full moon was given a special name by slaves that was best for running away light. During the time when the Underground Railway was operating, they had to reach a known destination by moonlight. I can't remember what it was.
Maybe they called a full moon, Freedom Moon, but I found this info about the instructions given to them to keep the Drinking Gourd (Big Dipper) in sight when travelling on starlit nights. “Follow the Drinking Gourd” was a song used in the Underground Railroad to help give directions to the escaping slaves. The “drinking gourd” was the name for a hollow gourd that the slaves would use to collect water.
