Exploring the Arts of Celebrancy
Once again the Moon and Sun face off. We have the fifth ‘super Moon’ of the solar year because the Moon is at her closest approach to earth. The excitement of the opposition between Sun and Moon grows as the Moon swells! We are aware of all that must be contained in this time of bright moonshine. The crickets and cicadas take out their violins and castanets every evening to play the wild rhythms that are in our bodies and blood as well. What is the rhythm of your heart? How often do you take time to listen to the beat?
The Labyrinth is my theme for this new Moon.
In the throat of the valley the brook is a trickle of song
coming out of darkness and homing to light and ocean
between the sussurations of midsummer grass and birdsong.
A year and a year and a year and still the world issues its questions –
sometimes the answers show themselves in full sun
sometimes the same faint question drags the same furrow, in shade

Full Moon in Scorpio for 2014
To understand the Invisible, study the Visible—The Talmud
How quickly a new Moon in Taurus has grown to be the large full Moon in Scorpio! Once again we are asked to balance two opposing impulses in our psyches and in our lives. We might best understand these impulses and energies if we think about Beltane and Samhain. Taurus in Beltane heightens our love of the physical and visible beauty of the earth, while the Scropio Moon reminds us there is another world invisible and mysterious.
