Full Moon Music

Tonight’s full moon is the second one in this month, making it a “Blue 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.


Sunday Songs & Silliness: Mercury Retrograde Memes! (Re-blogged)

Mercury is direct again, so this post of memes and music marking a retrograde transit earlier this year demanded a re-blog.

The musical selection still has a theme, too. I like how I tied the songs together!


Eyrie Of An Aries

Mercury turns retrograde at 1614 PDT. Time to reflect on things, revise plans and goals, and see what is revealed when you reassess certain events. Sometimes things can be repaired; other times, retreat is a necessity. Enjoy these thoughtful and silly memes, along with a bit of music. I decided to play โ€œconnect-the-songsโ€ this time around; letโ€™s see if those of you who are REALLY reading this can spot how it was done! I hope that your respective weekends are going well โ€“ later, โ€˜gators!

5 Songs for Full Moon Monday…7 August 2017!

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, 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 please enjoy these 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!

Tribute On Teachers’ Day…

I had a post planned for today, until I looked at my favourite astrology website and saw this:

Daily Horoscope

Jonathan Cainer 1957-2016 Tuesday, 3 May 2016

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Jonathan passed away in the early hours of Monday morning.

Jonathan was a Sagittarian and the forecast he wrote for his own sign that day was uncannily prescient:

“We aren’t here for long. We should make the most of every moment. We all understand this yet don’t we forget it, many times? We get caught up in missions, battles and desires. We imagine that we have forever and a day. In one way, we may be right – for are we not eternal spirits, temporarily residing in finite physical form?”

‘Didn’t he see it coming?’ is a question that will inevitably be asked. Jonathan was always adamant that astrologers should not look to predict the time of a person’s demise. He said there was the danger of creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.

From BBC News:

The Daily Mail’s horoscope writer Jonathan Cainer has died aged 58.

The Mail said Cainer was “quite simply, Britain’s greatest astrologer” and that his death was a “tragedy”.

Cainer was the newspaper’s astrologer from 1992 to 2000, returning to write the column again from 2004. His horoscopes were translated into Japanese, Spanish, Italian and Chinese.

The Mail said Cainer had died from a suspected heart attack but that this had not been confirmed.

‘Heartfelt condolences’

A Daily Mail spokesman said: “A much-loved contributor to the Daily Mail for 20 years, his wisdom and compassion were unmatched.

“Millions of readers couldn’t start the day without him – and would end it marvelling at the uncanny accuracy of his forecasts.

“It’s an absolute tragedy that Jonathan has passed away at such a young age and we have no doubt his countless fans will join us in expressing heartfelt condolences to his family.

Ah, me…I don’t know what to say. I’ve been following Jonathan’s forecasts for as long as I can remember – I think that I started reading him regularly in 1996, since that was the first year that I bought a PC for myself. It was my reward to myself for successfully landing a full-time office position, which I wasn’t sure was within my grasp at the time, LOL – I call myself a “diamond in the rough,” for many reasons!

In tribute to Jonathan, teachers, and astrologers around the world…some music to celebrate his life and the spirituality he shared with all.
