the cold moon
Full moon greetings! Today is an excellent day to take advantage of the full moon's energy to initiate change or to bring something new into your life...Opportunity perhaps, or relationships. Hopefully, the cold moon (or wolf/snow moon) will stimulate some creative energies :)
It's certainly snowy outside in the Chicago area. It looks like a good day to stay home and write. (Or submit your work, if you are so inclined...) I'm looking forward to reading the next batch of submissions for Summer. (Which seems a long way off on this shivery day...but the older I get, the faster time seems to flow...must be some strange and unknown law of physics!)
The cold moon is also a good time for goal-setting. I've already decided to try and worry less this year (and that's quite a challenge, trust me!) I'm generally a very goal-oriented person, always pushing forward, looking for the next big task, but I think 2008 will be the year of rest and reflection. I think 2009, however, will be my year to get crazy-busy (according to my astrological chart, anyway), so learning to chill might be a useful little talent...
I also want to give some well-deserved props to Melissa, whose work appears in the (just released) new journal Barn Owl Review! Congrats, lady! Looks like the full moon is shining a light on your poetic talents today :)
