This morning I was up at one of my favorite places – a remote beaver pond out in the country. The reeds and purple loose strife blew softly in the breeze as I walked and mused about this weekend’s inspired Full Moon on Saturday 8/13 at 2:57 pm EDT. When it came to me suddenly about what to write I returned to the car and excitedly drove off – subsequently discovering I was going in the wrong direction! This is a good symbol for the influences of the upcoming Full Moon- a very good time to be in touch with the higher planes – accessing information for creative or spiritual growth- but sometimes confusing and illusory on the mundane level- with Mercury retrograde opposing Neptune. There is a strong Venus influence at the Full Moon so it also bodes well to identify and appreciate all the things we love and value in our lives – a very good time for gratitude.
