Did everyone get to see the glorious Full Moon* this week? My dad called yesterday, telling me how the sports announcers (in Baltimore) were remarking on it. Some people even tweeted phone photos. No matter how fancy-pants and technological we all become, there is still that basic and ancient delight when we look up in the sky.
* Referred to as the Storm Moon, or Seed Moon, Lenten Moon, Crow Moon.
In a recent e-mail update (from Awakenings) I received the complete report, here’s a sample section:
“This week we all have the opportunity to question our needs and desires a bit more deeply. To ask ourselves why we want what we want, and how that desire really took root within us in the first place. And in contemplating these questions we can begin to encounter the deeper and more enduring comfort that arises out of knowing we can pull together to meet our basic needs, to create workable communities that protect and support all their members, regardless of material status. Because there’s quite enough of everything to go around, if we all receive only what we need and pass on the excess to others.”
If you want to see the entire post, go HERE, in fact, I encourage everyone to do just that. Super informative and worthwhile (as Sarah’s work always is).
I’ve been trying lately (and for-fucking-ever) to move my focus away from the physical and (back?) on to the mental/spiritual, so this moon message came at me “full” force. It has to be noted, my acknowledgments, outloud appreciations, and gratitude are simply not as prominent in my day as I think they need to be. It’s all a process, I know. So I’ll take this lesson for what it was meant to be, an encouraging nudge, not a scolding reprimand.
I don’t have much other news to report, it’s been busy here (the beginning of our birthday season is like that). The pool schedule changes* next week, fingers crossed that the lap-laners will be better behaved than the last group we were forced to share water with. The sad fact of the matter is, I’m in a non-profit therapeutic facility, so we have to make the most of all hours and sessions. Economics take priority.
*My class never moves or changes, for which I am sincerely thankful.
On our card altar this afternoon I kept the illustration viewable, even though it wasn’t terrific. It wasn’t terrible, either.
“Goddess Of Justice ~
What seems an injustice is actually a blessing.
You feel that a certain situation in your life is in some way unfair. Yet be assured that justice, which is the natural state of balance inherent in the universe, does exist. Justice is actually the universal law of cause and effect through which all in life is kept in balance.
The recent event which you perceive to be unfair is actually a blessing in disguise, here to guide you towards your highest purpose. It is understandable that you cannot see the blessing at this time, however the Goddess of Justice is asking you to surrender the strong emotions and resentments you’ve attached to this situation.
By letting go of this issue she will help clear your path and create the space for something wondrous to occur.”
That “letting go” part, yeah. Gotcha. Loud. And Clear. Workin’ on it!

Recent FLP Sightings:
are backing up. We have seen at least two (possibly three) Wyomings, in the past few days, plus a Tennessee (that Dan spotted, but I missed), New York, some sort of a government Idaho, and Nebraska (on which he remarked, “examples from the Heartland are so rare“).
Another Festive Wave:
