Happy Friday the 13th Full Moon


Friday the 13th FULL MOON

By Tara Sutphen

The Strawberry Full Moon (Native American) falls on Friday the 13th at 22* Sagittarius, it will culminate June 12, 2014 9:13pm PDT/ June 13, 2014 12:13am EDT (Farmers Almanac).

There won’t be another Full Moon on Friday the 13th until 2049. Here are a few fun facts of Friday the 13th to get you in the mood that it’s a good day:

o   The US Seal has 13 stars, bars, feathers in the eagle’s tail, 13 bars in one claw, 13 olive branches in the other.

o   The Chinese, Pagans and others in ancient times marked time by the lunar cycle and calendar, thus 13 was considered a very lucky number.

o   Egyptian philosophy believes life is a mission for the eternal afterlife. This journey walks through 13 levels, the first 12 in this life, at death the 13th level. The number 13 symbolizes death as glorious and attaining “real life”. But you must go through the 12 stages first.

o   Fear of Friday the 13th is called Triskaidekaphobia.

o   The fear of Friday the 13th started as a Norse Myth where 12 gods were having a party in Valhalla (Heaven) and capricious Loki came as the 13th guest and arranged for Hoder the Blind to shoot Baider the Beautiful with a mistletoe tipped arrow where he died and the earth grew dark.

What a beautiful omen as we are at summer solstice and the sunshine is at its peak. We are to honor the light of the sun and our inner luminosity. The moon in Sagittarius asks us to take an unprejudiced look at our happiness. This moon is about racing back into the verve of life. We are to sing, dance, love with the utmost reconnection of the self. Reactivate the pulse on ‘who we really are ‘ underneath conditional programming. This is not about going hog-wild and releasing the inner-crazy, this is about coming back to the “beautiful you”.

No longer should we feel disoriented or locked in a box. There is a side to everyone’s psyche that is triggered by their personal unhappiness. We are to re-find the lost parts of our wise choices, sense of fun, and no more boredom.   Let go of stress, bad habits and negative thought patterns, and this IS clear-cut, don’t hang on to pain. It’s a time to stop any callous behavior too. You are to break free. Manage your life with gentleness. As you gain insight, your intuition leads you to stabilize your emotions and act in your best interest.

Actions speak louder than words. Stepping forward isn’t about doing what other people want you to do…it’s about you doing what you want to do. Society has some unnecessary rules, yet the universe is boundless, and the one rule is simple: “Live life in compassionate harmony”. If you don’t act in your self-interest now you will waste precious time.

Journal Questions:

Maybe if we reverse our sight we could see ourselves a little better: Visualize your self from space – close your eyes – and in your minds eye – look down and identify who you are on the earth – really click in and see……. scope in and see yourself down there in your human suit.

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”~Aristotle (Ancient Greek Philosopher 384 BC-322 BC)
