I voted Yes. I was raised by the seaside, within earshot of the ocean, and have vivid memories of lying awake at night, listening to the waves breaking on the nearby beach. I was told, at an early age, that the powerful king tides crashing upon the beach were a direct result of the Moon's magnetic pull. So when I found out that the human body is primarily comprised of water, it seemed logical to me that we too are probably also influenced by the Moon.

I really like the fact that the full moon is the same all over the world no matter what season it is. The sun blazes or wanes and changes the state of affairs on the earth, but the moon's effect is more subtle...and it affects everything all over the earth.

The full moon is coinciding with the autumnal equinox. How neat is that?  :D

I wonder whether powerful magic can be worked--more powerful than usual--when the full moon and the equinox coincide?

THey don't exactly coincide, but very close. The equinox is this evening (in the Eastern US time zone) and the full moon is tomorrow morning.

Powerful magic? Apparently you can balance an egg on its end during this time!! Might be a good time to try some experiments!!

Me too!

I love the moon, esp the full moon.

Sadly, I've never been able to take any good pictures of it, probably I need a better camera to do it.

The full moon was beautiful last night from a balcony in the South End, wispy clouds floating by - a very "Brokeback Moon".

No planets were visible either because of clouds or lights. We observed that the boys would have been off the Mountain already separated a full month.

Later on there were some sprinkles, but they didn't dampen the company or conversation.

Sounds heavenly!! Did you talk of dogs you had owned, the draft, or anything involved with threshing?
