October Full Harvest and Hunter Moon October 5, 2017 15:40
Happy Full Harvest and Hunter Moon!
The Farmer's Almenac explains why this moon is both the Hunter and Harvest Moon of this year. It happens to also be my and my husband's 3rd wedding anniversary! I was almost done with this artwork and then I thought, "I should include the 3 year wedding anniversary stone in this." As it turns out, Clear Quartz (and pearl) are the traditional 3rd year wedding anniversary stones. So this Full Moon is extra special to me. It's in the sign of Aires and here are what the experts have to say:
I normally launch new products on the New Moon but I am OREGON bound for our Anniversary trip October 10th through the 21st. My husband lived in Portland for 7 years and Astoria for 3 years so he's showing me his old stomping grounds. I lovingly call him, "Chef Squatch," so I feel as if we are taking him to his native land. The New Moon is on the 19th so I thought I would launch some items on the Full Moon so I can enjoy my trip. Here are this Lunar Full Moon's offerings:
Happy Full Moon!
Keep an eye on my Instagram for photos of OREGON!
August 7th Full Moon Solar Eclipse August 30, 2017 09:42
Happy Belated Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse
According to the Farmer's Almenac, this moon was called the 'Sturgeon Moon'. "The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon."
Monday's full moon was also a partial lunar eclipse and its effects were powerful. With the Sun in fiery Leo and the Moon in watery Aquarius, this one was intense! It had me in an incredilbly reflective state, and I had a hard time focusing my energy on anything else. Hence, the tardiness of this blog. Eclipses bring about sudden change, so my of us experienced some major shifts over the past few days. Eclipses have a way of ripping away things that are no longer serving us, leaving us feeling vulnerable and out of control at first. But eclipses have a funny way of knowing what's best for us. Perthaps as we let the dust settle, we'll find that this was JUST the change we needed.
Here's what a few of my favorite astrologers have to report:
For this Full Moon, I decided to add some of the Unisex pieces I've recently made to my Etsy shop! I post all one of a kinds there and you can follow the links to below to purchase them. These Unisex necklaces are all on thick antique brass or silver chain with larger lobster clasp closures.
August 21st Total Solar Eclipse of the Sun
Next New Moon is also a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF THE SUN!
This eclipse's path of totality goes 45 minutes north of my hometown, Kansas City.
The last total solar eclipse viewed from contiguous United States was on Feb. 26, 1979 whose path passed through the northwestern U.S. states and Canada. After this total solar eclipse, the next annular solar eclipse that can be seen in the continental United States will be on October 14, 2023 which will be visible from Northern California to Florida. Following this, a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 visible from Texas to Maine.
I consider myself so lucky to be a part of this event on the day of the Solar Eclipse! All my New Moon listings will be available and I'm making some one of a kinds in honor of the Eclipse. This is a sold out event but I will blog about it!
I'm coming to CHICAGO!
I'm popping up at Squasht Boutique for a Happy Hour event on Friday, August 25th!
Happy Belated Full Moon!
Love and Light to you all and my the Eclipse season treat you well.
