Full Moon in Leo

The eve of a full moon (in Leo, my astrological friend, Lisa Zimmerman, says) is a powerful event. Most of the time, a full moon has a bit of an impact on me. Typically, it’s a notice a day or two after the event has passed. “Oh, THAT’S what was going on, that’s why I felt a little agitated.” Or, “That’s where all of that excess energy came from!” At least for me.
My sister, Janet, supports my theory of agitation, too. For her, the evidence is obvious from her days working  in an emergency room. She reported that everyone in the ER knew to be at the ready during a full moon, which would surely bring in more shootings and injuries of all kinds. Now, that’s some agitation. At least I was armed only with my trusty Pilot G2 ballpoint ink pen.
Tonight is the actual full moon. All of that pent up energy was swirling around me last night, though, in unsettling ways. Not get-my-gun ways. More like cry-to-love-song-ways. Falling into bed later, exhausted, did not bring peace. Eventually, I gave it up, got up, and grabbed my G2 (the ink pen) and wrote a poem. About the stupid full moon that wasn’t even full yet.  My fave part was that I found a lovely photo of a full moon over Wyoming by Walter Hawn,  of  The Daily Photograph (TM).

Full Moon

Do your magic
cast your spell
shiver my psyche
unhinge my pin.

Shine like day
into my room
in my bed
crazy my head.

Spiral out
dissolve into dawn
release me soon
please, full moon.

After that, I slept, knowing I was going to be able to go to the studio today and hammer it out, literally. What do you do when agitation strikes? Do you have any tried-and-true full moon remedies? I’ll post them here if you’d like to share.

Handmade Jewely in time for Christmas!

So, I’ve been spending a LOT of time at the bench lately. And the chiropractor (the wonderful Bob Dixon!). Plus Mercury is in retrograde. And the Winter Solstice is just days away! I think there is a full moon in there somewhere. And I’ve been having a @#$*load of weird dreams as icing on the freak-flag cake. What to do? Be responsible and practical with my blogspace.
In order to keep from saying really dumb things, I’m going to post a bunch of photos of my work. Plus I now have Photoshop Elements 9 and I’m pretty happy with the four functions I’ve figured out so far:

  1. crop
  2. auto-sharpen
  3. auto-correct
  4. change image size

That’s really all one needs, and that’s about the size of it. Except, I have waaaay more beautiful handmade jewelry available than is pictured here! And most of it is not on the shopping page, but is nonetheless available.
