The moon is full in Scorpio today at 14:57 Central Daylight Time.

I liked this full moon report a lot!  Check it out for the astrology.

And this was good for the astronomy of the "shallow" eclipse.

Part of an eclipse trio, not a pair, btw.  Tonight might be the best night of the year to conceive-- a child, a business, a garden, a dream.  Anything.

This is the night of the year when you "sow" the harvest.  This is the twin of the full moon near Samhain at the end of the magickal New Year.

Bealtaine is coming, and Spring is full upon us, almost unbearable here in the fertile, green confluence.  Bealtaine is the mid point of the magickal year.  The Lady to Samhain's Lord, Life to Death, New Spirits entering the world to the Departed and Lost.

Plant the seeds, bless the seedlings and sprouts, welcome the returning fecundity. Envision the crops at the height of summer and at harvest time, at their best.  Every molecule in the air wants to be part of the waxing Spring energy.

Like thistle-seed moats floating in the breeze, seeking a place to sprout, the energy right now is seeking dreams in which to take root and grow.

Reach out with your heart to all the goodness that the future holds for you!!!

Let your light shine and your heart soar!!!  (And if you are on the Astral Plane, mount your broomsticks or dragon ;o)


PS-- if you are an Ent-Wife, like me, you might notice that in Spring, trees are like babies and change everyday.  There is no stronger magick right now than observing and appreciating the growth of the green earth.  xoxoxox

"Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be ... oh so smart, or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me."--- Elwood P. Dowd in the movie Harvey
on You Tube:

The moon was New on Wednesday, April 10, at 4:35 AM here in Saint Louis.  It is the first new moon of the astrological New Year, and Mercury is up to speed.

Cast your spell.

The time and the energy right now is SO powerful.  Possibilities that have never existed before are opening up in so many ways.  The past is cleansed, the present is blessed, and the future is ripe with opportunities.

For me, this profound shift has occurred not because the world changed, or that I changed worlds. Since returning here, particularly at the end of 09, I have been living in a Haunted House of my past.

There are places here, where every experience is really two: what is happening in the present, and then also comparing it to what my experiences were in the past at that same location, or among the same or similar people.

 But I wanted to get over it, and release it.  Sometimes that meant getting angry and sometimes it meant letting go of anger.

And sometimes, a rare and magickal moment comes along.  A golden moment.

Something unexpected shows up.  It's the beginning of every great story and every great adventure in the story.

I was just watching Harvey, the movie with Jimmy Stewart and the giant hare Harvey, the Pooka.

Elwood P. Dowd, Jimmy Stewart's character, has this to say about golden moments:  

"Harvey and I have things to do... we sit in the bars... have a drink or two... play the juke box. Very soon the faces of all the other people turn towards me and they smile. They say: 'We don't know your name, mister, but you're a very nice fellow.' Harvey and I warm ourselves in these golden moments. We came as strangers - soon we have friends. They come over. They sit with us. They drink with us. They talk to us. They tell us about the great big terrible things they've done and the great big wonderful things they're going to do. Their hopes, their regrets. Their loves, their hates. All very large, because nobody ever brings anything small into a bar."

I was at a bar the other night, a rare place, where such moments have the occasion to happen.   Even the name is rare "Blue Moon", Pop's Blue Moon to be precise. 

I was listening to a new reggae band, the YardSqaud, on the Hill.

I went out to have a drink that night originally, to escape- to have a few drinks and just forget about my life for a minute.  What I remembered while I was there is that I need to forget about my past, and start paying attention to all the great experiences this city has to offer me right now in my present.

The only time a person can truly get overwhelmed is to live beyond the present time and company.

"I always have a wonderful time, wherever I am, whoever I'm with."  --Elwood P. Dowd

If I were the author of a story "Lady Rae's Adventures in 2013 Saint Louis" I could not have imagined a better place for her to be! And this is a city of numerous, multiple good bars and entertainment venues.

I will be reading tarot cards there beginning this Saturday, April 13, from 4:30 to 7:30.  The readings are $5 and usually 5 or 10 minutes and usually 3 cards, generally good for one situation or question, or just to see where you are at, at the moment.  If you only what happy news, ask for the Happy Hour reading. :D

The readings are held in a private area in the back room. Come have a chat with me and my Pooka.  ;P

Happy Spring New Moon!!!!

Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it. --Elwood P. Dowd
