This weekend is very special for the moon if you follow that sort of thing. It will be the closest to earth since 19 years ago and so therefore will also appear brighter. Click here to read the whole story: Full-moon
Now, I don’t know about the rest of you but I actually do believe that the moon has mysterious powers and that there is an invisible force in the Universe that scientists label as ‘folklore’ because they can’t explain it otherwise.
I also know that Italian’s seem to be attuned to this sort of thing too because whenever I want to plant seeds in the garden my husband first consults the calendar to see when there will be a new moon. Hmmm, my husband is not exactly the tarot card toting, gypsy, I believe in ferries kinda guy (unlike his hippie wife), so why is he so fixated on the moon when it comes to farming?
All I know is that things have been quite weird for me this weekend. Is it the moon? Is it me? Is it hormones? I just got a frantic call from Mama saying she can’t find Coco! Jesus! Do I need this? How can you not find a 4 kilo white cat in a 2 bedroom apartment??? Okay…the phone just rang, she found her! Breathe I say, breathe! Someone please rescue me from this madness!!!
But if you are just a hopeless romantic, do yourself a favour and look out the window tonight to see the moon, you won’t be disappointed. Here’s another link if you’re interested: Supermoon
