FULL LUNAR ECLIPSE TONIGHT!!

Although it's snowing to beat the band at the moment, I understand the skies should clear later in the afternoon to make way for a spectacular full lunar eclipse tonight. Imagine the power of the event--- full moon lighting up the snow-covered earth darkened by the passage of the earth, only to emerge again a couple of hours later to bring back the light. I'm sure it will be an energetically-packed time. I can't wait!!

I believe the next full eclipse is not until winter solstice in 2010. Here's hoping tonight's celestial spectacle removes the funk and illness that seem to prevail at the moment.

Wasn't it AMAZING! I sat outside bundled up in wooly clothes and watched until the end. Sigh. I feel so suddenly small.

My friends and I cuddled in our blankets and coats and warm clothes to watch this beautiful spectacle of nature. I loved every minute of it!! Well, I didn't love having "Total Eclipse of the Heart" stuck in my head, but that doesn't matter :D
