Buckle your seatbelts, ladies and gentlemen, because this full moon is supposed to be a doozy. It's the harvest moon, ordinarily a deliciously mellow full moon that reflects back to us the whole spectrum of bounty.

But this year, what the harvest moon is reflecting is a Sun/Saturn conjunction, opposing explosive Uranus. Ouch. The sun likes to radiate light and warmth. Saturn likes to contain and constrain. The Sun is a happy light, Saturn is quite sober and stern. When they get together, there's always a clash, like rain on a parade.

Uranus is the revolutionary, tossing Malatov cocktails into every situation. In the case of this weekend, the clash between the Sun and Saturn will be exacerbated by Uranus.

Every astrologer has a different way of understanding the dance of the planets and how that dance interacts with the dramatic dance of we humans. My take on it is that this weekend is likely to be very emotional for many of us.

My strategy? I'm going to ride the waves of emotion as if I were on the Cyclone at Coney Island. Why not?

This full moon will pass, as they all do. Thank God for the relentless march of time! Hang tight, ya'll. It'll all be over soon.

Wow! I had no idea such forces were at work! Thanks for the heads up! :)

Adrianne said...

I shudder to think of how these forces might be affecting the already-precarious world of financial institutions and markets. Jeff has been on conference calls non-stop today, and I think that tomorrow will be more of the same. Stay tuned. . . .

P.S. That black box gadget is totally addictive.

Ah, there are very powerful forces out there. So far, no cataclysmic events around here. But it's only Saturday . . .

The old moon, a very powerful force in so many ways.

I'm hoping it will provide the relevant blast of Malatov Cocktail to shift months of stagnant energy so things can finally begin to move smoothly again. A moon enema, perhaps ;-)

I love those shots - gorgeous - as always.

What a relief. A cosmic reason why my weekend is dipped in emotion.

If only I could wait out the fight by photographing a couple of trees rather than writing an essay.

Great pictures! I particularly enjoyed the first one with the contrasting darker hues in the middle strip.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and taking the time to comment.
