Blood Moon…

May 8, 2013

Sanguine – definition: 1) blood-red in color 2) having a temperament of full-bloodiness; liveliness, cheerfulness; 3) confident : optimistic


This image will more than likely elicit thoughts of vampires and werewolves – we seem to be in the age of such beasts.  You may also think of the Red planet. I have always loved the lunar cycle but especially crystal clear nights under a full ‘harvest’ moon. It’s golden tones are quite magical.

A red moon is the result of an lunar eclipse. The sun’s rays pass through the earth’s atmosphere when all three planet’s are aligned hence the red colour.

Apologies that this post is so short but I woke up in a lot of back pain…I hope everyone else has a great day.
