As most of you probably know by now, tonight will be a blue moon, or the second full moon in a month. That this happens "once in a blue moon," AND that it's the last day of the year, ushering in a new decade, seems especially auspicious to me. Or at least I'm going to insist on its auspiciousness. And it's a good thing, because I've very little inspiration this week and sort of dreaded the whole New Year thing -- the resolutions, the passing of the old, the ushering in the new, etc. I've never been much on the new year's eve celebration thing, preferring to go to bed early and pretend it's just another day.
But you know how much I love the moon, and the Blue Moon makes me feel good. And I read this article in Salon today which, although a bit on the overly new-agey style, makes me feel good, too.
The last day of 2009 is a doozy -- triply auspicious. Not only is it the eve of a new year, a new decade no less, there will be a full moon, a lunar eclipse and a blue moon to boot.
