I have long been fascinated with the full moon. In the past, I would even spend some time moon watching and even light a scented candle during the occasion. Last month on Halloween night, I took photos for the first time of the full moon that night. Ah, I love the photos! Well, I’m no professional photographer but I’d like to share the photos here just the same. It’s a great way for me to remember how much I like the full moon anywhere, esp. here in Binondo where I reside. 😀
I don’t know about you, but maybe the reason why I’m fascinated with the full moon is that it is associated with some folklore (like lycanthropy). Yes, I’m probably more a werewolf than a vampire person. However, it is worthy to note that I am not a Twilight Saga fan. I just want that cleared. LOL! 😀
I remember laughing when I once read a quote from my Facebook timeline. “In my younger days, we were scared of vampires and werewolves; nowadays, everyone wants to date them!” Or something to that effect.
The full moon is also said to be associated with temporal insomnia or insanity (hence the terms lunacy and lunatic). And even if science claims that no such connection exists, I still believe that a few people are greatly affected by this full moon phenomenon. It is quite evident in their mood swings and somehow irrational behavior during the full moon. They somehow tone down or mellow down once the moon phase changes.
The full moon is important to Wiccans too. It’s a great time to recharge and renew positive and good energies. It’s even great for renewing energies on crystals and other gems. It is of course up to you whether you will believe such a thing. I just happen to find full moon nights special.
If you didn’t see it, last night’s full moon was awesome! I couldn’t help take another shot at it. My daughter took the photos and she couldn’t reach up high enough so you’ll see part of some railings. Nonetheless, the full moon was spectacular! 🙂
Anyway, it’s good to share my moon photos here. During last month’s Halloween celebration on Squidoo, I shared a lens on my top three favorite werewolves. Do visit it too! Ta-tah! Till next time…
