Lunar Lore
…when the moone is at the full:
because that planet is comfortable in the night time,
and with her warme light mitigateth the cold of the night.
~ Pliny’s “Natural History,” Philemon Holland’s trans.
•           •           •           •.
When the moon is on the wave,
And the glow-worm in the grass,
And the meteor on the grave,
And the wisp on the morass;
When the falling stars are shooting,
And the answered owls are hooting,
And the silent leaves are still…
~ Byron, “Manfred” (I.1).
•           •           •           •.
The Moon in opposition to Venus,
shews a laudable day in all kind of business.

To see his British brothers reign
As stars below.

Current Moon Phase for January 10th – Waning Gibbous

Gibbous Moon

(waning /52% of illumination)

This is a tremendous time of transmutation. All of the prior elements are coming together for a final burst of creative output. You have seen a clear view of your own needs and the posture of significant others. Now the accumulation of that input is leading to a deep, core change within you. In this phase, you will naturally be inclined to seek higher guidance so that you can emerge from this transformation successfully. The Gibbous Moon favors sharing what you have learned (and are learning) with others.
