Full Moon

Last night was the first night of the full moon. As I saw it rising out of my window, I had to put my sandals on and head outside to bask in the silvery light.

The Moon has long been a fascination for all people, of all countries and spiritualities. She is roughly the same size as the Sun when viewed here on Earth. The Moon is full thirteen times a year, with one month having two full moons. She cycles every twenty-eight days from new to waxing to full to waning to new again. It’s no mystery anymore that the pull of the moon affects our oceans’ tides, and womens’ monthly cycles.
