Blue Moon and Its Influence

Blue Moon over Kobe, Japan taken by Daisuke Tomiyasu

A Blue Moon occured on Friday, Aug. 31st.  I hope many of you took time to enjoy it.  For some the Moon has distinctively romantic implications.  Moonlight enhances romance, and lovers love the full moon.  Somehow moonlight makes everything more magical.

The blue moon occurs rarely.  A blue moon is the second full moon in a single month.  And usually it is not blue.

A full moon may have effects on humanity.  It’s been said by evening cops, psychiatric staff and emergency room personnel, that when there’s a full moon crazy things happen.  It may influence more than the tides.

And of course, there are the werewolves.  It’s an extra party-time for them. :) And if all werewolves looked like Joe Manganiello of True Blood, would we care?

This final photo of the many being posted around the world seems just that little bit more paranormal.   Ah, I feel inspired.  I wonder how many poets, song writers, and authors have been entranced into words under the influence of the moon.

What has the influence been on you?

  1. It was an excellent moon. So bright

  2. I would like to be influenced by Joe Manganiello … yum! I did happen to get a chance to take a romantic walk (with the pugs of course) and we really enjoyed it.

  3. Enjoyed the blog. Two full moons in one month, it was so bright in the back yard I could almost read.
