Friday the 13th and a full moon can lead to real fears for some

If you’re a selenophobic— people who fear the moon— or suffer from friggatriskaidekaphobia—
fear of Friday the 13th— you may not want to leave the house today.

For the first time in nearly a century, there will be a full moon rising on Friday the 13th.
And for some, superstitions of these two phenomena are very real.

“In the U.S. there are millions and millions of people who just want to stay home and not take
any chances on either one of these – Friday the 13th or a full moon – and here they are both
together,” said Mike McKee, a psychologist at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio......

The next time a full moon rises on Friday the 13th will be in the year 2049.

I don’t buy into the hooey. Mrs. 40 was born on Friday the 13th and she has been the best thing to ever happen to me.

There must be propitiation! Let the Obama daughters be sacrificed!

O stranger, tell the Lacedaemonians that we lie here, obedient to their command.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

The month of June's full Moon's name is the Full Strawberry Moon. June's Full Strawberry Moon
got its name because the Algonquin tribes knew it as a signal to gather ripening fruit.

I don’t buy into the hooey.

**************

I don’t buy into the superstition part. But for me this will be the only one I’ll see
in my lifetime. The next one is 2049 and I’ll not be walking this earth.

“Is everybody in?

Is everybody in?

Is everybody in?

The ceremony is about to begin.

The entertainment for this evening is not new, you’ve seen this entertainment through and through you have seen your birth, your life, your death....you may recall all the rest. Did you have a good world when you died?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS4gVVIMp0E

“Awake”

“Shake dreams from your hair
My pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
The day’s divinity
First thing you see.

A vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon
Couples naked race down by its quiet side
And we laugh like soft, mad children
Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy
The music and voices are all around us.
Choose they croon the Ancient Ones
The time has come again
Choose now, they croon
Beneath the moon
Beside an ancient lake
Enter again the sweet forest
Enter the hot dream
Come with us
Everything is broken up and dances.”

Called my vet today. She’s not in. Office is closed.
Thought this was weird because her day off is Thursdays. Then I remembered. She wasn’t in on 06-06-2006 when I had a feline emergency.

I think she’s a tad superstitious.

When I was in France back in 1980, I was dating a police detective. No joke, but on a full moon they locked up all the known crazies overnight.

Maybe we should lock the white hut.

Makes no difference, the werewolves, witches and vampires are on the prowl in DC 24/7. Why would today be any different?
