Coming up for Air

20210919_225042

It was a quick trip to Mom, 4 days.  Packed a lot into the time. POA shift, moved Mom on to hospice, need a new hospital bed – motor died (made do with a log and seat cushion to change the angles for Mom), attempted to get quality WiFi (need a new router), attempted to get the gardens/yard into some semblance of order (including picking up 15 cigarette butts on the driveway from a caregiver – what is wrong with people. Are they born in a barn? We have a cigarette repository out there.), maintenance man/snow removal man is no longer working – looking for help (Note his kid moved away and they no longer need to store his classic car in the garage…hmmm? Maybe that had something to do with being unavailable…), cleaned the odd places in the house and the upstairs as best as possible.

Grocery shopped at night and saw ⇑⇑⇑ the MOON!

It’s Full this Evening.  Don’t forget to shake your wallet at the Moon!

And think of dievca flying home late tonight. XO


In the Pink

Super Moon GifThe final week of April will kick off with a full moon, known this month as the Pink Moon. It’s also a “supermoon”.

The moon will officially become full at 11:32 p.m. ET Monday, April 26, but will look plenty full when it rises above the eastern horizon Monday evening. The moon will be its usual golden color near the horizon and look white as it moves overhead.

So why is it called the pink moon?

Creeping phlox (Phlox subulata) or moss phlox on flowerbed

Creeping phlox (Phlox subulata) or moss phlox on flowerbed

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, April’s full moon often corresponded with the early springtime blooms of a certain pink wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox subulata – commonly called creeping phlox or moss phlox – which also went by the name ‘moss pink’.


Chain the Moon!

The Beaver Moon will occur on Nov. 30, 2020 and will reach its fullest phase Monday morning, Nov. 30, at 4:30 a.m. Eastern time.

As the moon is becoming full early Monday morning, there will be a partial lunar eclipse — known as a penumbral eclipse. While it’s not as dramatic as a full lunar eclipse, it could be visible here on the East Coast and in other areas of North America.

A penumbral eclipse takes place when the moon drifts through the outer section of Earth’s shadow, or penumbra, and part of the sun’s rays are blocked from shining on the moon during that time, according to astronomy experts at EarthSky.org.

dievca caught an early glimpse of what is to come, heading home from the gym last night.  Looks lovely in Chains.


Look for the Moon! What does it all mean?

Jane Greer Full Moon.

Hunter’s Moon, Beaver Moon, Blue Moon, Micro Moon, or Frost, Frosty, Snow Moon. Sharad Purnima; and the Thadingyut, Hpaung Daw U, and Low Krathong Festival Moon. This All Hallows Eve Moon will appear “opposite” the Sun (in Earth-based longitude) at 10:49 AM EDT and will appear Full through Sunday evening.

Thoughts from around the web on what this Blue Moon on Halloween means:

“Magically speaking, blue and full moons are amazing opportunities to release and heal,” This moon is a very fortunate time to mend our bodies, minds, and hearts.

“Full moons have always been seen as moments in time in which the astrological energy comes to a climax.  Since this moon is happening on Halloween and while the Sun is in Scorpio, a sign that is closely connected to the spiritual world, this blue moon is an obvious invitation to get super witchy!”  If you aren’t taking advantage of this lunar event and performing a witchy ritual around this time, you’re missing out on all of the mystical, fantastical, and enchanting energy in the air.

“This is one of the few times within the year that we can easily bridge the gap between both worlds. The blue moon will serve as an extra illumination on the metaphorical realm, as full moons expose matters on Earth due to its effervescent glow.”

Halloween will be the first blue moon visible in every time zone since 1944. Might be good to charge those crystals! The next full moon on Halloween that will be visible worldwide is expected in 2077, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.

“Full moons are a time when we get a little assistance seeing in the dark.  It is a very significant full moon, and it is happening four days before the election and is sitting next to a planet with upheaval, change, surprise, excitement: Uranus.” It’s a good time to get rid of things we don’t need.

“I think that symbols — and a blue moon is a symbol — do have the potential to activate things in an individual and in the collective.  It is a time when something rare can happen.”

For the moon to actually appear blue is a whole different matter. There has to be enough matter of a particular size kicked into the atmosphere that red light is scattered. The popular example of this is the 1883 eruption of the Indonesian volcano Krakatoa. According to NASA, the eruption was so large that for years afterwards,the moon appeared bluish and sometimes greenish. The volcanic ash particles were large enough to block out red wavelengths of light, while other wavelengths carried on as usual.

Full moons are a call for balance. The moon — symbolic of the divine feminine — sitting proudly across from the sun — a symbol of the sacred masculine and the greatest source of energy — is powerful beyond words. This is precisely why full moons are so climactic and revealing. This lunar phase never ceases to bring what’s hidden to light. and with the sun in Scorpio — symbolic of the underworld — opposing the moon in Taurus — a representation of Mother Earth — this lunation is speaking to the cycle of life and death.

To top it off, this full moon will also conjunct Uranus, at the exact same degree, so shocking is an understatement. The “Great Awakener,” and the planet of chaos, revolution, and unexpected change, it’s safe to say that the shocking revelations stemming from this full moon will make history. Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t there, and this year’s full (blue) moon conjunct Uranus on All Hallows Eve will prove it.

Wishing you a HAPPY HALLOWEEN,
no matter what the FULL MOON brings~

Full Corn Moon!

The next full Moon will occur tonight Wednesday, September 2, 2020, at 1:22 AM ET, and is known as the Full Corn Moon. Since the Harvest Moon and Corn Moon are different this year, the Harvest Moon will be the next full moon set to appear on October 1.

September brings with it a positive new attitude — starting in the wee hours of September 2, when the Moon waxes full in sensitive Pisces, filling us with a sense of optimism. This Full Moon is supported by a sextile with innovation-leading Uranus in retrograde, revealing new solutions to old problems.

Plus, the Moon and the Month brings along dievca’s birthday. XO


Sturgeon Full Moon and an Optical Effect

The Full Sturgeon Moon

August’s full Moon will appear this evening of Sunday, August 2, before reaching peak illumination at 11:59 A.M. Eastern Time on Monday, August 3. On either August 2nd or 3rd, look toward the southeast after sunset to catch a glimpse of the Sturgeon Moon rising, weather permitting!

August’s full Moon will hang relatively low in the night sky, which makes it look larger due to perspective (Ebbinghaus Illusion). Why is the Moon hanging lower? A full Moon is opposite the Sun, which as we all know, is higher in the sky during summer. So the full Moon runs lower.


The Ebbinghaus illusion is one optical effect that might help explain the moon illusion. In this illustration, the green circles are exactly the same size, but the ones on the right appear larger than those on the left.green


Cagey Floral (lingerie)

Contemporary and classic all at once, the CAGE BRA has additional straps that form a pattern resembling a cage, either in the front or back or both sides.. It looks fantastic on any size bust because it appears to give ample support to any cup size. Caged bras look awesome on goth girls, bondage mistresses, and fans of Fifty Shades of Grey. Conversely, those who prefer a more traditionally feminine style can rock a caged bra when they fancy flaunting an edgy look.

Despite its name, wearing a cage bra doesn’t mean you’re locking up your bust. The cage bra gets its name from multiple straps that spread above or below the cups for an elegant look. Coverage: Cage bras vary in coverage, but usually they favor showing off your curves and sexy cleavage rather than full coverage.

Liquid Red Floral Cage Bra on sale for $24,99 one size (click photo for link)

Elegant Floral Lace Harness Cage Bra Lingerie piece. This is a stretchy designer harness top that will compliment your black, color, or nude bra or wear alone with pasties or topless depending on how much of a bold statement you’re looking for at an affordable price! It is one size fits most.

PS. Something to wear for the next Super Floral Moon appearance!


Just because…the Moon needs to be shared.

After the Solstice: DECEMBER’S FULL COLD MOON

WHAT IS THE WINTER SOLSTICE?
The word solstice comes from Latin sol “sun” and sistere “to stand still.” In the Northern Hemisphere, as summer advances to winter, the points on the horizon where the Sun rises and sets advance southward each day; the high point in the Sun’s daily path across the sky, which occurs at local noon, also moves southward each day.

At the winter solstice (Friday, December 21st, 2018), the Sun’s path has reached its southernmost position. The next day, the path will advance northward. However, a few days before and after the winter solstice, the change is so slight that the Sun’s path seems to stay the same, or stand still. The Sun is directly overhead at “high-noon” on Winter Solstice at the latitude called the Tropic of Capricorn.

The Full Moon for December 2018 rises on the 22nd at 12:49 PM—very near the winter solstice this year! It will be close to full (95%) on Christmas Eve. Traditionally, this Moon is called the Full Cold Moon because it is the full moon closest to the Winter Solstice.

Don’t forget to shake your wallet at the moon to come into money. And keep in mind the days will be getting longer from here onward!

A “Thank You” to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, Refinery 29 and Google!

The Day Begins = Strawberry Moon = Moody Blues

Where dievca’s head is, this morning, and what is coming up.

Good Morning!

Breath deep
The gathering gloom
Watch lights fade
From every room
Bedsitter people
Look back and lament
Another day’s useless
Energy spent

Empassioned lovers
Wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love
And has none
New mother picks up
And suckles her son
Senior citizens
Wish they were young

Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours
From our sight
Red is gray and
Yellow white
But we decide
Which is right
And
Which is an Illusion

Look for the Strawberry Moon on June 28 12:53 am in NYC

Days Of Future Past~The Day Begins

Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colours from our sight,
Red is gray and yellow white,
But we decide which is right,
And which is an illusion.

Pinprick holes in a colourless sky,
Let incipient figures of light pass by,
The mighty light of ten thousand suns,
Challenges infinity and soon is gone.

Night time,to some a brief interlude,
To other the fear of solitude,
Brave Helios, wake up your steeds,
Bring the warmth the countryside needs

To grow these:

Make a Wish.


A Cold Nose and the Full Moon

Tonight’s Moon is the last full moon of the year and it should be a good one.

dievca caught the moon, yesterday evening, after walking home from sharing Ramen with a friend. (http://www.junmenramen.com/)
It was very close to full!

Photo: dievca 12/02/2017 NYC

December’s full moon is called the Cold Moon.
Tonight’s full moon will be a supermoon, and the only visible supermoon in 2017.

During her city wandering, dievca was wearing:

 

The moon becomes totally full at 10:47 a.m. EST (1547 GMT).

The best time to see a supermoon is just after sunset. Something called the “moon illusion” makes the moon appear even bigger: The closer it is to the horizon, the larger it looks. No one knows exactly why this happens, but it is probably has something to do with our eyes.

For those living in the mainland United States, the supermoon will rise at 4:29 p.m. local time in San Francisco and 5:26 p.m. in New York City. If you are in Honolulu, head outside at 6:25 p.m. Those in Anchorage, Alaska, can catch the moonrise at 4:28 p.m.

dievca will be wishing you good health and joy on the Moon!


Hunter’s Moon: Bark at the Moon

In folklore, all the full moons have names. The names typically coincide with months of the year, or seasons. One of the most famous moon names is the Hunter’s Moon. It is the full moon immediately after the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon occurring most closely to the autumnal equinox.

The Hunter’s Moon, in skylore, is also sometimes called the Blood Moon. Why? Probably because it’s a characteristic of these autumn full moons that they seem full – and rise soon after sunset – for several evenings in a row. Many people see them when they are low in the sky, shortly after they’ve risen, at which time there’s more atmosphere between you and the moon than when the moon is overhead. When you see the moon low in the sky, the extra air between you and the moon makes the moon look reddish. Voila. Blood Moon.

As the light of the full Moon spills into the room are you planning to dance and serve your Sir under its gentle light? Make a wish, dream a dream and the Blue Moon will guide your way. 

XO dievca

Originally, a Blue Moon was defined as the third of four full moons in a single season. More recently, people have defined a Blue Moon as the second of two full moons in a single calendar month.

So, if a full moon occurs early in a longer month – there is a chance for a Blue Moon to appear.   It happens every 2-3 years.

Today’s Blue Moon is set to occur at July 31, 2015 – 06:43 am (EDT) for NYC.

When was the last Blue Moon, according to the monthly definition?  August 31, 2012.

Let dievca offer some music to dance by — not the most famous version of the song, but the original: 

VIDEO: ♥ Blue Moon (original Al Bowlly, 1936)

Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue Moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper, ‘Please adore me’
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold

Blue Moon, now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
