Blue Moon
Tonight is a full astrological blue Moon. A blue Moon usually only occurs if it is the second one in a single month. This blue Moon is an astrological one because the Moon has been stuck in Leo and Aquarius since the last full Moon on July 22nd. It is what is called a seasonal blue Moon It will present the third of four full moons to fall in the same season. A season is defined as the period of time in between a solstice and an equinox – or vice versa. This full moon is the third of four full moons to take place in between the June 2013 solstice and the September 2013 equinox. That makes the August 2013 full Moon a Blue Moon! This Moon is also called the Sturgeon Moon or the Corn Moon.

This Aquarius full Moon has an extra bit of creative magic with the Sun in Leo. The time is potent to follow our hearts to create new pathways. There is a simultaneous shedding and emerging as we focus to ground our visions into form. Some deep activations happening as well so we must move with the changes, allow what wants to come forth, and trust our inner knowing and guidance.

Your enthusiasm, idealism and creativity could be at an all-time high. You could be bursting with new ideas. You could have sudden insights. You can move from breakdown to breakthrough. You are experiencing a transformation in consciousness.

Sometimes your growth can feel weird and strange when you are no longer connecting to your past. But truly, the old way of living no longer works for you. You are experiencing new aspects of yourself and life. You are giving birth to the new you, and giving birth is painful. This is real work. This is real growth. There is so much to celebrate.

You are being encouraged to break free from the chains that bind you. Let go of what no longer serves your emotional needs and inner security. The more you release the further you can travel.

The Moon We Left Behind

...The Moon We Left Behind How can we as a society turn our back on our space program? The author of this article shows his admiration for imagination, which came to life. Nearly 40 years ago the space program was put in motion. The thought of mankind walking on the moon astounded a generation of scientist. Some of his points on where we place priority are evident. How can we spend time and money on a space station that we share with the Russians and Chinese, and not try to still excel above the rest of our counter parts? This mission remains ours to maintain our status in the science history books. We are experiencing problems at an alarming rate such as disease, unemployment, war, etc. Why not invest in the future and accept what it could bring. Imagine how it could jump start the vast number of great minds that exist in our communities here in the United States of America. One thing we all should marvel at is the “beautiful, intricate, and complicated -- and ultimately, hopelessly impractical -- machine ever built by man: the space shuttle.” (p. 55) But now it has become a display at our museums. So if our nation can spend billions on stimulus, why not put monies in our future space programs for our advancement? Furthermore, through the missions to the moon has created a new profound consciousness of earth’s environmental precautions. We have become a society that is deep into extra-terrestrials now more than ever before and why stop now? The picture of the blue......

The Moon Landing

...The Moon Landing On the day of July 20, 1969 the United States of America accomplished a colossal feat that astonished the world. After years of trial and error the United States of America was able to beat all odds and all other countries in putting a man on the Earth’s moon, two men to be exact. Neil Alden Armstrong, the first man to lay his feet on the moon’s surface and Edwin Eugene “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. who shortly followed became symbols of America’s self-proclaimed superiority. The controversy of this topic lies in many questions. What events took place that led up to the moon landing? Who was involved? How and why did we put a man on the moon and be the first? History itself can give us these answers but there is also one question that seems to still have people talking to this day and that is, did it really even happen or could it possibly be the United States of America’s greatest hoax? The Cold War began approximately in 1945 at the end of World War II. The United States, Great Britain and some other allied counties decided they wanted to contain communism in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R) and China. Although the United States of America and these communist enemies did not get in any physical battles during this war there was definitely a lot of unspoken threats and the flexing of muscles between the two super powers, the United States of America and the Soviet Union. One of the two biggest contests or “races” between the two countries began when...

...Moons of the solar system Ganymede Ganymede is a satellite of Jupiter and the largest moon in the Solar System. It is the seventh moon and third Galilean satellite outward from Jupiter. It has a diameter of 5,268 km 8 percent larger than that of the planet Mercury. It is a fully differentiated body with an iron-rich, liquid core. A saltwater ocean is believed to exist nearly 200 km below Ganymede's surface, sandwiched between layers of ice. Ganymede is the only moon in the Solar System known to possess a magnetosphere, likely created through convection within the liquid iron core. The meager magnetosphere is buried within Jupiter's much larger magnetic field and would show only as a local perturbation of the field lines. The satellite has a thin oxygen atmosphere that includes O, O2, and possibly O3, which is ozone. Ganymede's discovery is credited to Galileo Galilei, who was the first to observe it on January 7, 1610. Astronomer Simon Marius soon suggested the satellite’s name, for the mythological Ganymede, cupbearer of the Greek gods and Zeus's lover. On January 7, 1610, Galileo Galilei observed what he believed were three stars near Jupiter, including what turned out to be Ganymede, Calisto, and one body that turned out to be the combined light from Io and Europa; the next night he noticed that they had moved. On January 13, he saw all four at once for the first time, but had seen each of the moons before this date at least once. By January 15, Galileo came to the......

Distance of the Moon

...one time, according to Sir George H. Darwin, the Moon was very close to the Earth. Then the tides gradually pushed her far away: the tides that the Moon herself causes in the Earth’s waters, where the Earth slowly loses energy. How well I know! – old Qfwfq cried – the rest of you can’t remember, but I can. We had her on top of us all the time, that enormous Moon: when she was full – nights as bright as day, but with the butter-coloured light – it looked as if she were going to crush us; when she was new, she rolled around the sky like a black umbrella blown by the wind; and when she was waxing, she came forward with her horns so low she seemed about to stick into the peak of a promontory and get caught there. But the whole business of the Moon’s phases worked in a different way then: because the distances from the Sun were different, and the orbits, and the angle of something or other, I forget what; as for eclipses, with Earth and Moon stuck together the way they were, why, we had eclipses every minute: naturally, those two big monsters managed to put each other in the shade constantly, first one, then the other. Orbit? Oh, elliptical, of course: for a while it would huddle against us and then it would take flight for a while. The tides, when the Moon swung closer, rose so high nobody could hold them back. There were nights when the Moon was full and very, very low, and the tide was so high that the Moon missed a ducking in the sea by a......

The Man in the Moon

...The Man in the Moon (1991) Review/Film; A New Boy In Town Captures Her Heart Everything about "The Man in the Moon," Robert Mulligan's effortlessly old-fashioned family drama set in a small Southern town, has a rosy glow. It's a reminder that Mr. Mulligan, a seasoned film maker whose credits include "To Kill a Mockingbird," "Summer of '42" and "The Other," can direct with real tenderness and without fake emotion. His latest film unfolds gently and gracefully, in a climate where the warmth isn't merely a matter of weather. Until its final reel, when it strains badly to accommodate an almost biblical stroke of retribution, "The Man in the Moon" is a small, fond film that achieves a kind of quiet perfection. The story concerns two sisters, and Mr. Mulligan can find something evocative even in the way the elder braids the younger one's hair. The latter, 14-year-old Dani (Reese Witherspoon), is just on the verge of real beauty, while the slightly older Maureen (Emily Warfield) has already gotten there. The girls' family, which is beautifully evoked, exists at all different stages of development, from their toddler sister to their pregnant mother (Tess Harper) and the father (Sam Waterston) who is wary of his daughters' prospective suitors. In his or her own way, each member of this family longs for a boy. When one arrives, in the form of a handsome teen-age neighbor named Court (Jason London), he affects the girls' family in powerful ways. The coltish Dani becomes smitten with...

The Moon

...------------------------------------------------- the interpretation "The Escape"  by W. Somerset Maugham I would like to interpret the text which is called “The Escape” written by W. Somerset Maugham. He was a famous English novelist, playwright and short-story writer of the end of the nineteenth and of the twentieth centuries. His first novels were not successful. But gradually he gained a success, he became internationally celebrated, his plays were performed all over the world. Among his famous work are “Lady Frederic”, “Moon and Sixpence”, “Ashenden”, “Cakes and Ale” and many others. Thanks to his work he became known as a master of human soul, a wise man who not only knows how to depict, the hypocrisy and brutality of bourgeois society, but also has the ability to portray different characters in clear and natural Manner. The text under interpretation is the story about a woman who made up her mind to marry to a man who tried to avoid it and to extricate himself at any price. This ironic story discloses the problem of nature of relations between men and women. The main characters of the text are the narrator, his friend Roger Charing and Ruth Barlow. In the first person narration the narrator tells that there is no way for a man to escape from a woman who decided to marry him at any price but instant flight. One of his friend seeing the inevitable loom menacingly before him was so conscious of the danger to be married that he took the first ship and went away for......

...US Army Uniformity Essay In 1776 the British and the Continental Army, led by; Commander in Chief George Washington, fought over who would control the 13 Colonies and the future of the United States of America. During that time The British was dominating for the main reasons being; uniformity, organization, and overall military knowledge that the Continental Army clearly lacked during the first years into the American Revolution. In 1778 a Prussian Officer, General Von Steuben reported to Valley Forge to turn demoralized and unknowing men into a ready to fight, physically fit Continental Army who would later drive the British out of control over the colonies and let us go on to make the United States of America the land it is today. Even when America fought over itself in the Civil War over slavery where the enemy wasn’t the Taliban, French, German, or British but instead the North and South fighting against one another there was uniformity, military knowledge, and above all discipline still in effect. The Uniform code 670-1, Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia is the code by which a soldier should look. For example, Tattoos, how insignias can be worn, the army’s view on jewelry and many other examples. I believe this regulation falls under, “I will always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself” in the soldier’s creed. While I was at basic training, the first day my company commander had a saying for us to understand during our time there, “Its hard but......

The Moon

...The Moon is a vast, elegant, and mysterious celestial object of the sky. Although it doesn’t take an expert to measure the Moon, but everyone, who has some knowledge of the sky, is able to do this task. As an assignment for my Astronomy 100 class, I had a choice of projects and chose the moon. The project had me find measurements of the position, phase, and the appearance of the moon. From my window adjacent to my bed, I made observations of the moon, but as the moon made its orbit around the Earth. I couldn’t see the moon from my current position, so occasionally I moved position from my bedroom window to the outside. The night is cool and grand, but never knowing the weather; the sky could be clear, cloudy, or raining, but I don’t think I had a rainy day, so I had perfect weather throughout. Cloudy days often happened, but the moon is bright and sometimes helped me locate the moon; on the other hand, I couldn’t see the moon so I had to use a website my professor provided us. Keeping up with the date and rarely skipping days, it was smooth and I was able to view the moon even if the weather and the appearance of the moon changed over time. Beginning on October 27, 2014 to November 17, 2014 while some days where skipped. I was able to see a Waxing crescent, first quarter, Waxing gibbous, Waning gibbous, Waning crescent, and especially a Full Moon on November 6, 2014, and about becoming less to more brighter or vice-versa, but the intervals from New to Full moon was zero. ...

The Origin of the Moon

...The Origin of the Moon: discussion on the gradual perfection of proposed hypotheses Introduction The Moon is the easiest and most familiar object that human can catch in the clear night. The Moon as known as our Earth’s only natural satellite is indicated by Rick Carlson in recent research to have an age of between 4.40 and 4.45 billion years, which is not long after the origin of the Earth. However, the origin of the Moon is still not defined and further research on this topic is continuous. The exploration of formation of the Moon is gradually per fected by the various proposed theories started from 1878 to nowadays. This research essay will discuss both the past and present hypotheses of origin of the Moon. The past hypotheses also known as “The Big Three” referring to Fission, Capture and Accretion hypotheses are popular in different times and centuries before the Apollo mission flew in 1972 (Tyson, 2000). However, the study on the moon rock brought by Apollo’s program gives unavailable clues for “The Big Three”(Tyson, 2000). Nowadays, the Giant Impact Hypothesis is regarded as the most leading theory that is most accepted in present. Nevertheless, it is widely accepted, some studies supported this theory; others may create new theory to challenge this Giant Impact Hypothesis, which make this hypothesis still arguable. However, whatever these hypotheses failed or will achieve, they bring a better understanding on the formation of planet’s satellites in our Solar System......

Blood Burning Moon

...Literary Analysis #1 In the “Blood Burning Moon” by Jean Toomer, the author takes the reader back in time to the rural south-1 during a time of Jim Crow laws. In a small town, Tom Burwell and Bob Stone challenge each other for the affection of an African American woman named Louisa. Louisa has no last name, which signifies that she has not taken on a name of the “master” or she is just any Negro woman. After bob-1 and Tom discovered each other’s-1 lust for Louisa, a fight breaks out in which Bob’s throat get slashed. Bob, a white man, was able to stumble back to the white side of town to tell others. An extreme racist mob formed quickly to lynch Tom and burned him at the stake. Throughout the story, the author accentuates racism, love and passion, imagery and Tom’s getting lynched.—Thesis needs a clearer and more unified sense of purpose and theme.    The moon symbolized the eyes of God as it is lowered to the earth. Clouds symbolized the presence of God. The blood red moon symbolized the host drenched in blood. In this story, the moon is raising toward a dark cloud. These represent God hiding his face from the evil.—If you are gong to make these analytical claims about symbolism, you need to show and back them up with specific and concrete quoted support from the story.    In exploring(,)-1 the feelings of Bob and Tom toward Louisa, Toomer portrays a relationship of love and passion through racism. In order to show racial conflict, Toomer creates a romantic......
