A New Year, A Blue Moon January 1, 2010

A Blue Moon

Last night was quite wonderful. It wasn’t just because of the fancy champagne, of the fact I was around my family, of the fun game of Scrabble and watching of Star Trek. Nope, the main thing that got me was the moon.

Last night, you see, was a blue moon. As you can probably guess from the name, these occurences don’t happen very often (once in a blue moon, in fact…), and are even less likely on a significant date such as New Year. A blue moon is when there are two full moons in a single month – and now you can see why it is rare! As the Hootenanny continued on TV s the bells stuck midnight, we headed outside, and were greeted by this full moon, this blue moon. As “The Night Before Christmas” says, the moon gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.

It was so bright, glowing away in the sky, casting long deep black shadow and making it feel like night never truly descended. To cap it all off, this blue moon was surround by a huge white halo, a rare occasion in itself and beautiful to watch.

The combination of the moon and the halo got me to thinking in  terms of astrology. Whilst my logical lateral side denies any relevance, I couldn’t shake of the feeling that maybe 2010, and the next decade, are going to be important for the world. I don’t know whether good or bad, but surely the happening of such significant events as the clock ticked oer to a new year means something? Something important, life changing possible… who knows!

The way you describe the moon is absolutely magical. Happy New Year!

I concur with your premonition. The next decade is going to be critically important in numerous ways. We’re facing such serious problems that, whatever we do, we’ll affect our life on this planet. I’m just hoping for the best, for all of us.
