Monday Mutterings: July Full Moon/Power Outages

The July full moon, also known as the Blessing Moon, began yesterday evening.  However, for myself and my friends living in the Tri-State area, we could not see her.  For the past few days Mother Nature has been sending us some interesting weather, including some water spouts and tornadoes.  We lost power at my house for about two hours yesterday, which isn't too serious, but it made me a bit crazy since the outage was shorty before True Blood.  The Lord and Lady must understand my lust for Eric Northman because power was restored 10 minutes before the show was about to begin.

Later today I will be posting my July full moon ritual.  I need to complete homework for my Shakespeare Graduate class as well as dragging my rear end to the gym.  I've been a bit of a slacker on my weightloss regimine.  I did want to post a picture of my power outage activity with the hubby from yesterday.  It seems like I always go back to the same activity when the lights go out: puzzles.  I rounded up some candles and the hubby and I set to work on seperating our pieces by color and type.  It's a work in progress but it will be a nice indoor activity when the humidity spikes.

You have to click on the photo to really see the puzzle pieces, but it was a lot of fun sitting by candlelight.  It gave me some ideas for candle chandeliers when I have my own house.

I rather enjoy the occasional power-outage - except in winter. :) It seems to offer a powerful perspective shift, one filled with potential wisdom, should we choose to gaze that way and acknowledge what we witness - even in winter. :)

I have a question that I can't seem to find an answer anywhere. Background info behind the Q. : I have for many years tried to close my senses to the spirits and only recently realized due to recent events it was time to learn how to control my ability. What I noticed, though, was during this months moon for the past 2-3 days my senses increased to the point where I had difficulty sleeping and saw/sensed wisps of spirits. My question is can the moon naturally increase abilities or is it during certain times of the year? Thank you for reading this and if you don't have the answer then that is perfectly fine. Have a good day!

@Anonymous: My mind/sense seem to always be open to the spirit world and I've never really tried to close myself off to it. Some people are impacted by the phases of the moon. I'd look more into your own star chart as the positions of the moon, starts and planets may impact your own psychic/spirit abilities. I'm not an expert on the topic but it's really the only explanation I can think of for heightened abilities at different times of the year.
