Tonight is the blood moon-super moon-lunar eclipse. It is conveniently visible from my geographic location and at a time that doesn’t require me to disrupt my sleep schedule to observe it.
The main issue is that it’s cloudy as fuck here and I’d have to drive out west to get a clear view of the sky, and that’s pretty much not happening. I’m very much a homebody and putting on pants after 9pm just isn’t in the cards.
My practice is very much one of working with earth-as-it-is and the daily, monthly, and yearly cycles of the world. Something like this that comes around every 33 years or so is nifty and cool and I kind of want to see it just for science’s sake, but it’s far too rare to really have that much of an impact on my daily work.
Plus, putting too much stock in rare events like these that I may or may not get to see would make me feel really discouraged about the rest of my practice, so it’s best if I just let it be and enjoy the idea of it.
