Full Moon Fever, Superstitions

This week is special because the full moon and Friday the 13th are falling at the same time.  Just a few minutes after midnight on Friday, EDT the full moon will brighten the sky.  For astrology buffs this moon holds aspects of jubilance and caution.  For sky watchers the visual effects will be stunning, since the full moon is close to the summer solstice.  Much ado is being made about the combination double whammy of the date and the moon, but I want to point out that if you live west of the Eastern time zone in the US or Canada, our full moon will happen on Thursday the 12th.  I am in that lucky group.  Our full moon party will be free of any other beliefs about dates.  Here are some of the perils we may escape:

  • To begin any new project is folly on Friday the 13th
  • Cleaning or changing the bed brings bad luck
  • Signing contracts on this day will doom the agreement

My parents were married on Friday the 13th, which was also my maternal grandmother’s birthday.  Since she was not in approval, or invited, I think my parents might have meant it as a prank.  The most significant thing that happened in history on that day was the Battle of Guadalcanal.   I can’t say that it was lucky or unlucky for the marriage, but they did not divorce.  The contract they initiated on Friday 13 Nov, 1942 lasted until death did them part in 2004.  My parents were either bold or not superstitious. I consider 13 to be a lucky number.  Do you have reservations or feelings about the upcoming full moon and the meaning it has in your life?

Can;t wait for this moon. I saw it at almost full moon last night around midnight or 1 AM (I was too blearly to be sure) and it was high in the sky and it was pretty big.
