This Week's Moment of Gratitude! - Well we danced by the light of the moon!

There is an impending Full Moon energy that has been clouding things up a bit cosmically speaking. Full Moons are considered endings; perhaps a chapter in your life is closing now. In the clear light of the Full Moon, you are able to distinguish what may be holding you back and what you need to break free of before you can move forward. Start with a junk drawer, then move to a closet. Maybe the clear light of the moon will help you see your items with fresh new eyes.

Sometimes even songs capture the nostalgia that is arisen during a new moon phase and help us put our feelings into perspective.

Seals & Crofts Dance by the Light of the Moon Lyrics:

Remember the old days when I met you. I never
thought I would get you. Remember the good times
we shared together, and now they're just a song.
Remember the first time that I saw you. Remember
the first time that I taught you. Remember the old
friends we knew together, and how they've all gone

Well we danced by the light of the moon. The band
kept on playing that tune. You asked me to carry
you home, we were alone. And then I saw moonlight
dance in your hair. Now I'll never, never, never
see it again. No I'll never, ever, ever have it
again. It's gone, just like the song that lives

Doesn't it seem like the right time. I wanna go
way back through my lifetime. Gotta go way back
and re-live those days, when everything was mine.
Doesn't it seem like a long ways. Back through the
fog and the byways. Doesn't it seem strange it
took so long, but I saw it all today.

The moon through the trees did go down. The
snowflakes had covered the ground. Morning left
moonlight behind; day was unkind. But then I saw
lovelight dance in your hair. Ah I'll never,
never, never see it again. I'll never, ever, ever
have it again. Oh no, just the snow and I know.

What do these lyrics remind you of? The bolded lines really resonated most with me. This new moon weekend has found many I know purging their closets and while I at first bucked the idea,  I think I will spend the day doing much of the same. Getting rid of the old will make room for the new, and also let me know clearly what I still value by what makes the cut in the 'save' pile by the time I'm through.

After I clean my closets and get nostalgic over what has to go because it no longer serves a purpose or fills a need, I'm also going to take a moment to really enjoy the pieces that 'made the cut' the ones staying with me because I need them a little longer on my journey. Then I'll stare in complete satisfaction at the empty space I've made.  And the wonder and possibility of what is going to fill this new space in my life.

When that's all done.......I may just have to the light of moon.....and let moonbeams dance across my hair. What will your full/new moon ritual be?

This Full Moon in humanitarian Aquarius is a time to tie up loose ends and see just how you can make a difference in the bigger worldly picture. Other Aquarius Full Moon themes include a breaking free of the status quo, visionary ideas, worldly knowledge, and unexpected breakthroughs. (I could use a few of those, how about you?)

Make this your Best Week Ever!

Share what you are grateful for this week! (You can share on this thread daily, I will post weekly!) I am grateful for the day of Rest after a long week of hard work! I plan to allow myself work free time and errands free time and just be at peace. I'm thinking it's a great night to catch up with an old friend! Laughter is the most healing medicine I can think of after such a long, stressful week!

Remember Attitude Really Does Determine Altitude!
