Super Moon

August 10, 2014 — I had just finished dinner and cleaning the kitchen when I remembered tonight features the Super Moon.  Around 8 p.m. I headed over to Howe Homestead park and began trekking up to Summit Ridge to get a glimpse.  On the way, I saw a beautiful young deer on a road to my left, but it was a bit far away to get a decent photo.  In the pic below, the second white-topped fence stake from the left perfectly points at the rear end of the deer, appearing to be it’s white tail, directly in the foreground of the red car…

I was happy to see the deer, for that has been my animal totem for some time.  I felt as though the deer was guiding me toward the moon.  My yoga instructor had told us in class this morning that the Super Moon is a great time to meditate.  For me, the combination of the deer and the moon symbolizes a portent of something to come — a sign that significant change is imminent.

Within minutes, six more deer appeared nearby!

I also believe the deer came to say goodbye to me.  That is part of the change occurring.  I have been feeling drawn to water lately.

Yesterday I had taken a swim in the American River with some friends during a hot run.  Much of the trail went through forest. I was grateful to be close to nature; it was my intention that day.  However, despite the lovely forest and river, I did not see any birds or other animals.  I was not disappointed, but I was a bit confused.  Why was the Universe not sending me guides and messengers?  Yet, I have learned to trust my intuition and be patient.  The messages will come when they are meant to be.

I continued up the hill and watched the moon rise stunningly over the foothills of Mount Diablo.  I took many pictures, and many of them look similar to each other, so I will post just a few.

I purposefully let my phone camera stay out of focus for this shot, because for some reason it was making the moon look even larger and rounder.

I can’t say I know what exactly the portent is, but I’m excited for the future!
