Thanksgivings’ Mourning Moon

This evening the moon revealed her complexion to me. All of her blemishes and scars where proudly displayed for my camera lens. I am awed, humbled and grateful to be able to capture these images. A beautiful way to end Thanksgiving Day.

The Last Full Moon until Winter Solstice on December 22, 2015

I shot these images, this evening after celebrating a multi-culture thanksgiving feast at my daughter’s house.  Date: Thanksgiving Night, November 26, 2015  @ 8:00 p.m.

My affirmation for the mourning moon is to shed 30 pounds!

On the eve of Thanksgiving, which was yesterday, Pagans celebrated a traditional and lesser-known occasion known as the “Mourning Moon.”

Mourning Moon, Wednesday, November 25th 2015 @ 8 p.m.Moonrise on Wednesday, came on the heels of September’s “blood moon” and a supermoon in October,  and began at 5:44 p.m. Eastern, is the last time the moon is full before the Winter Solstice on Tuesday, December 22, 2015. This is the shortest day of the year.

The mourning moon, is time for cleansing and breaking bad habits. It is a great time to begin a diet. Guess what I’ll be doing:-)  Wash away the fat from my body! Yes!
