    Default The Moon

    hunters_moon.jpg

    The Moon. It's a big dusty ball that lights the night's sky. How does it do it? I didn't think dust could be shiny.

    In honour of the great cheese sphere I open this new thread, in honour.

    Traditional Full Moon Names:

    Wolf Moon – January
    Snow Moon – February
    Worm Moon – March
    Pink Moon – April
    Flower Moon – May
    Strawberry Moon – June
    Buck Moon – July
    Sturgeon Moon – August
    Harvest Moon – September or October
    Full Corn Moon (Harvest) – September
    Hunter's Moon (Harvest) – October
    Beaver Moon – November
    Cold Moon – December

    October’s Full Moon is the Hunter’s Moon. It is also called Travel Moon, Dying Grass Moon, and sometimes Blood Moon or Sanguine Moon.

    Every three years, the October Full Moon is also the Harvest Moon. This particular name is given to the Full Moon which is closest to the September equinox, which is the start of fall in astronomy.

    However, the astronomical seasons do not match up with the lunar month. Therefore, the month the Harvest Moon occurs in, varies. Most years, it is in September. However, every three years, it is in the month of October.

    Hunter's moon is mentioned in several sources as the Anglo-Saxon name for the Full Moon of October. This is the month when the game is fattened, and it is time to start preparing for the coming winter. Traditionally, this included hunting, slaughtering and preserving meats for use in the coming winter months.

    Me and the moon have a long relationship. As long as I can remember it always made me feel restless when it was full. Sometimes even a few days before and after. Tonight is no different. Urges to do reckless things come in soft but perceivable waves. Nothing too crazy, mind. As the night goes on, the feelings get a little more intense. But it's only ever subtle. Never anything near a narcotic effect or whatever. I've grown used to checking the moon phase when I get these feelings. So often they come on the exact day of a full moon. But how? And I know I'm not the only one. Magnetic forces? Joni Mitchell once warned "beware the power of moons." Why, Joni? What is it?

    It's really easy to write it off as nonsense because it's the bloody moon and it only seems to effect some people. But from my own observations of my own self I've noticed changes before even knowing the moon phase. This happened a lot before I started to put 2+2 together. So I don't think it's just suggestion.

    Weed aids a full night's sleep, so that's good. And I doubt I'll ever be cured of it. So I guess it's something I'll have to live with. Even though it can make sleep a little difficult, I love my relationship with the moon. One time in 2008 on my birthday, the moon was literally the biggest I ever saw it. Looked double it's usual size at least. Like it was leaning in and having a closer look at us. Cartoonishly big. And the surface had so much more detail. And what is that face thing? And we only ever see one side of it?!

    And they went there once but can't get there again? And then destroyed all the tech? And Stanley Kubrik filmed the fake landing and then told us about it in The Shining?

    How can such a seemingly innocuous ball hold so many secrets and inspire so many minds?

    Here's to The Moon.

    Back at the Buddhist place doing a working visit atm. I noticed quite a few people were out of sorts at breakfast. Asked around, several people reported a restless night and were not feeling 100%.

    Is that because it's a full moon, or because it's 2019?

    For seafaring folk, the moon is like a giant traffic light. Waiting for that high tide green light. Fishermen all over the world have used the lunar phases to judge when to pack their biggest nets. Full moons are when fish are plenty and coral like to mate.

    This morning was especially difficult. We're out in the forest. Barely connected to the outside world. It's easier to sense smaller corporal changes. In the city it blends together.

    It's a sex cult. Free love. Ritual orgies.

    Great bit of seasonal (HB woops!) and cosmological Quran,
    beautifully translated by this tweeter https://twitter.com/azforeman/status...79416473559040

    Opening of Surat al-Raḥmān (thread...)

    The Lord of all Compassion
    Taught this Recitation
    Brought humankind into creation
    Taught them articulation.
    The sun and moon in reckoning alternate
    The plants and trees in prayer are prostrate...

    ...Heaven He raised up, and set down the balance
    Do not upset the balance
    Give all its proper weight
    Nor skew the balance He ordains.
    Earth He set down for His creations' sake
    On it are fruit and palms with flowers splayed
    And the fragrant herb and the kernel in the grain..

    ...Which of your Lord's glory signs would you two deny in vain?
    Mankind He wrought from wet clay like an earthen pot
    The Jinn He wrought from smokeless fire blown hot
    Which of your Lord's glory signs would you two deny in vain?...

    ...Lord of the two West Settings and two East Risings of the days,
    Which of your Lord's glory signs would you two deny in vain?
    He set the two seas free to meet,
    The bound between them is unbreached
    Which of your Lord's glory signs would you two deny in vain?...

    ...Coral and pearl they both contain
    Which of your Lord's glory signs would you two deny in vain?
    The ships splayed banner-like upon the seas are in his reign
    Which of your Lord's glory signs would you two deny in vain?...

    ...All on this earth shall wane
    Only your Lord's magnanimous majestic face remains,
    Which of your Lord's glory signs would you two deny in vain?...

    ....All on earth and heaven beseech him,
    Day after differing day he reigns.
    Which of your Lord's glory signs would you two deny in vain?

    Who's seen it tonight then? Big bright and beautiful. A really top moon and fullish too. At least my one is anyway, can't speak for yours.
