Full Moon Music (Re-blogged)

Eyrie Of An Aries

Tonight’s full moon is the second one in this month, making it a β€œBlue Moon.” There will be no full moon in February of this year; the last time this occurred was in 1999.

There is also a total lunar eclipse, which will be visible before the moon sets in the morning hours. People in the Midwestern USA, and as far west as Hawai’i, will be able to view this beautiful sight.

To mark this astronomical event, I offer up three moon-related songs for our collective auditory enjoyment. Go ahead – do some dancing in the moonlight.

Predictable Patterns

There are predictable patterns in nature.

The cycle of the seasons, the phases of the moon, the turning of the tides, or the migration of certain animals spring to mind.

Some people are equally predictable. Just wind them up and watch them go.

Little clockwork contrivances.

Some are amusing, but only for short periods of time. They wear out quickly.

Full Moon Monday

The full moon would be a lovely sight to see tonight, if the weather would only cooperate. Still, I can only hope that the clouds and haze today will be gone a fortnight from now, in order for us to get a perfect, crystal-clear viewing of the upcoming Solar Eclipse! An astronomical event such as this is a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence which simply must be seen. I recommend it if you’re fortunate enough to live in, or near, the path of totality. We’re picking up our eclipse-viewers from our optometrist later on today, as getting those from a reputable source is vital.

Creativity burgeons under the full moon and I enjoy listening to music when writing, so here are five songs which have nothing to do with the moon.

New Moon on Monday Music!

There is a rare, Monday new moon today…well, it is here on the U.S. West Coast! According to my Llewellyn’s Astrological Calendar, the new moon (in Aries, no less!) is at 1957 PDT; another calendar says that it is at 0257 UT. Time is a fascinating thing, isn’t it?

Anyway, you know this means that I have to play some moon-related music – but, I tossed in a couple of songs that aren’t, just to keep things interesting! I hope these songs get your week off to a good start. Later, ‘gators!

Tuesday Tunes: Mercury Retrograde Edition, December 2016!

Yep, it’s that time again…Mercury retrograde in Capricorn and Sagittarius, meaning double-trouble for my attempts at communicating with anyone! No wonder some people got all pissy and bent out of shape at me recently, LOL! Oh well, that’s how it goes…fecal matter doth occur! In light of that, here are three songs which articulate this perfectly. It’s also Solstice eve, and I’m working on a nice little post for tomorrow, which is the shortest day of the year. Music and pictures will abound! See you all later…

Storms On the Shore!!!

Hey all! Sorry for the late post, but unstable weather has been causing minor issues with the electricity. Also, my computer has been giving me a hassle, which is what frustrated the hell out of me yesterday – dealing with the computer techs has been a major exercise in futility! They refuse to acknowledge that there is some flawed component in my computer, which is causing the crashing and freezing issues I experience while gaming – whether I attempt to record a gaming session or live-stream, or not. I’m currently using what is supposed to be our ‘backup’ computer, and it’s running far better than mine is! Guess what? It even records and streams gaming sessions just fine – so there is obviously an issue in my main rig.

I was all ready to post a spleen-venting, expletive-filled, post of hatred towards condescending douchebags…but, waking up to the sound of thunder this morning soothed my mood. I will do a post about my ineffective dealings with the computer techs, but will try to do so in an amusing way! I’ve been inspired by a couple of bloggers who inject much humour in their writings and posts, and wanted to try to put a funny spin on something that has been exceptionally annoying and frustrating. I do my best to have backup plans in case things go wrong…it helps to be prepared for any possible eventuality.

The morning thunderstorms were very nice to wake up to…although, I understand that while I was enjoying the flashes of lightning and feeling, and hearing, the roll of thunder, the coastal town of Manzanita, down in Oregon, had a fairly sizeable tornado! The remnants of a typhoon are the cause, to my knowledge. Still, I love thunderstorms and wild weather…I’m what you would call a ceraunophile, LOL!

The wind is starting to kick up again, so I’ll keep this post short and sign off. It’s going to be a wild weekend! Hopefully the power stays on…I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Also, I hope that I can get some nice shots of the ocean after tomorrow’s storm blows through! The waters will look awesome, I think; I stepped out on the porch earlier, after everything had finally calmed down, and just listened to the roaring of the ocean…it was nice.

Also, I wanted to note that tomorrow is the night of the Hunter’s Full Moon (in Aries, no less!), as well as the Perigean Spring Tide…the overcast skies will prevent me from seeing the moon, but its effects are definitely being felt!

Thursday Thoughts…15 October 2015

Sitting here with a cup of coffee in hand, just thinking…I’ve always been more introspective than anything. If something goes wrong, I go inside and analyse it – must be the moon in Virgo thing. Instead of (or after) getting emotional, I turn it over and over in my hands, looking at it and picking it apart. The dog with the bone, shredding the gristle and cracking it open to get at the marrow inside. Tenacity. Grit. Drive, dedication, and determination – those are my qualities. Those are the things I live by. For some reason, though, there are people who want to slam your life and experiences. They choose to dismiss what you have gone through and demand that you acknowledge THEM. THEY are important, not you! Such psychopathy and narcissism is literally, physically nauseating to me.

I was thinking about this because of a recent comment made to me. Instead of reacting and responding to the vitriol and nonsense, I decided to sit and examine it for a bit this morning – I do my best thinking and writing in the mornings, and pretty much always have…my night owl tendencies are another topic, entirely! Anyway, while I was examining the comment, the town sirens began to sound. For those who live in areas where natural disasters are common, you might have a similar emergency system: if there is an event that requires evacuation, the sirens will sound and you must take prompt action pertaining to said event. There are monthly, bi-monthly, and weekly tests of these various systems, ranging from tsunami warnings to Amber Alerts. Growing up in Southeast Alaska, our emergency warning systems were the public radio and any CBs, shortwave, marine, or HAM radios various residents owned and operated. Living in South Dakota for a time exposed me to the klaxon system: massive sirens clustered on a single pole, radiating in all directions in a specific neighbourhood, or a single rotating horn of impressive decibel volume – the rotating ones were usually located near schools or hospitals, from what I saw.

At any rate, I have survived earthquakes, tornadoes, intense thunderstorms, and blizzards. I know about wildfires, flash-floods, tsunami, and avalanches. There are some people who are clueless about those events, just as I am clueless about dyslexia or privilege. I know that these things exist, but I have never experienced them personally. I won’t tell another that their experience is right or wrong, or that it didn’t happen…but for some reason, other people have done this to me throughout my life. Those people demand that I acknowledge THEIR lives without giving so much as a thought to my life, my experiences, and what I attempt to communicate. ’tis a strange thing, indeed…

Oh, well – there are some things in life that will never be answered, no matter how much we try! Enjoy these three Thursday songs…time for me to run some errands and do a little bit of housework.
