So I came back early this morning to stick down the pictures and write this post, now Mama Luna is truly at her fullest :D
The Holly Moon's theme has been 'coming back to Source'... asking myself 'What IS important?' 'What is essential?' These big questions were in my mind as I 'chose' the images...
Top right is a favourite We'Moon image I've been saving - 'Moon Goddess' by Marion Cloaninger (2002), next to her a lovely Toast model. Below her is another We'Moon page entitled ROOTS corresponding to this moon (July 15 - August 14) with the amazing 'Rainbow Blesser' by Cher Lyn (2000). Finally this wonderful rewording of the Our Father by Jennifer Webster (2003) - The wee image is 'Altar I' by Ulla Anobile (1998):
Our Mother, who art all around us,
blessed be thy children
Thy blessings won, thy work is done
on earth and in the heavens
Give us this day, the strength and trust
to confront our fears
As we challenge those who would use our fear against us
Guide us in the struggle
with love and peace
to create a new world
of justice, joy and harmony
For thine is the beauty
and the love of creation
In the circle forever,
Top left is a page from last year's quote-a-day calendar:
I thrive best hermit style
Most definitely true as 95% of ME is submerged, hidden, unexplored...
Then a vintage Vogue photo from the 1960s, I think, with the words Learn, Live, Dream clipped from a magazine ad - a mantra for me :)
Bottom right is a stunning We'Moon image called 'Rooted in Reverence, Seated in Spirit' by Mara Berendt Friedman (2006) which speaks deeply to me on oh so many levels...
Then the Liberation card from Arnell Ando's tarot with the words 'All we're ever looking for is an open door', and finally a favourite quote I typed out:
In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves.
I just love this moonboard - the images came easily, the lay-out even easier - everything just FIT, slotted into place...
I feel stuff shifting... deep below the surface of my Being...
May we all be richly blessed by this beautiful Blue Moon - what a gift!
