Keep It Weird: Ritual Healing

Sep 24, 2010

by Michelle Traub

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Did you catch the super harvest moon on Wednesday? The anticipation was overwhelming, autumnal energy drifting in an intoxicating cloud from office desk to office desk. Too bad that cloud then proceeded to seep out into the aether, rudely obstructing my view. I drowned my disappointment in some Szechuan out in Queens, but my pagan yearnings remained unfulfilled. This week’s Keep It Weird calls upon the spirit of the green man for guidance.

    Agh... In Brooklyn the storm obscured the moon too... Such disappointment! I was so, SO EXCITED about watching it... For days I told everyone, not only about the Harvest Moon coinciding with this year's Autumnal Equinox, but also about Jupiter's extreme proximity to Earth (closest since 1951!)
