I am always excited when I hear there is going to be a special type of moon event coming up.
I was even more excited when I realised I would be up early for it.
Blood Moon, Eclipse Moon, Full Moon… in the last while, whether a rare or a monthly occurrence, there has been a spectacle of ‘different’ moons. There is something magical about looking up at the sky and wondering what and how and where and why and maybe even WHO is going on up there.
The best time in our skies to view this ‘Super’ moon this morning was 3am… alas I was up at 5:30, walking to my car to set off for work… ehh, close enough.
I saw it big and bright. No I don’t have a great photo. I was thinking of big spiders and moths and so hurried to my car so I wasn’t exposed another second to the night’s surprises.
But it made me think about cycles, and life.
How these regular moon cycles of new, crescent, half and full can be overshadowed by the looming presence of a greater moon.
Something bigger, brighter, with more bling and boisterousness come along and show off to the rest of the world.
We have these moments too. We might be going through our lives, doing the daily routine, but then we will randomly have these star moments, these lightbulb-type days where we shine our brightest, the reasoning apparently no reason at all as everyone stops to view our splendour.
And then we wake up the next day at 9am, to start a regular day again.
The moon’s cycles, and in fact all of these super moons can ramp up human emotions in the process. We can feel affected by these sudden changes, and a greater-than-usual full moon is a great catalyst for life’s upheavals.
Did you see the ‘Super’ moon? Did you feel it’s affect on you? Did you have a bad day?
Or did you have an extraordinarily amazing day?
Stay humble. Like the lunar cycle, we will wane and the light will go… only to come back again…
The moon is big. We are small. Keep things in perspective, and let go to the Universe.
