October’s Full Hunter’s Moon, Megamoon 2016, Ground Energy Mother Earth

Travel Moon and the Dying Grass Moon Ok I can see this?

I just do not feel well during full moon, emotionally physically, I just hang low.  Saw my son was up at 6:30am so things are off then.  I believe the night before he took a walk at 4am.  Yes, it is the Full Moon! Thank you Jordan for fixing my computer.  You saved me from buying a new one! That is huge! Love and Happiness! Blessings, OM the Full moon in Aries, not good for blood flow. Oh OK, outRAGEous, socially unjust energies, I will keep reading! I knew it, that huge shift since last September’s Full Moon. OMG  this is going to continue.

My Friends who are in the journey with me Vicki and Debbie are always on my mind.

The Full Moon in Aries is exactly conjunct (joined) with Eris and also Uranus. That’s a serious, eyebrow-lifter for astrologers.
“We know Uranus can bring out the gifts of the rebel, the liberator, the awakener, the exile – each of these personas bringing a radical perspective because they value freedom and usually are precipitating it through unexpected and unsettling change.
“…Eris is cutting new ground here. She, with the aid of Uranus and in this moment the Full Aries Moon (all at 22-23º Aries) has been kicking up all the issues smacking of injustice whether in inner cities, locker rooms, prison cells, banks, war torn countries, wherever outRAGEous, socially unjust energies reside.
Eris is the archetype of the feminine spiritual warrior, a warrior goddess. She gives a voice to feminine wildness compelled to do the right thing for all living beings, and she doesn’t care what gets left behind on the battlefield.
“Eris can access her fierce, ruthless strength to battle all the ugly manifestations of dominance, separation, and greed that can be created by the ego. This is not wanton destruction, but principled action out of deep necessity to WAKE UP!
“So, I’m just saying, this is a big influence for this Full Moon. It’s showing up in the news and it will show up in the charts of those with planets at 20-25º cardinal signs Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Libra.
“When Mars and Aries are strong as they are here, anger is not your best ‘go to’ emotion. Although anger has its righteous place, over-reaction will not serve you.
“Keeping the peace or asserting yourself will be on the table. This Megamoon has a lot to teach us.”

Pink Floyd: The Great Gig In The Sky.

My Dearest Friend Angelo, brilliant DJ, reminded me of the times we shared this song together. He inspired my improvisational dance career in South Jersey. I was feeling blue and he told me I owned this song when performed. Deep emotional feelings surface down to my heart and inner soul.

Pink Floyd keyboard player Rick Wright, wrote this song, which is about life, gradually descending into death. Hence the angrier and more intense first half with a dying person refusing to “go gently into that good night.”The second half is gentler, as the dying person gives into the inevitable and fades away. In the March 1998 issue of Mojo, Wright explained: “For me, one of the pressures of being in the band was this constant fear of dying because of all the traveling we were doing in planes and on the motorways in America and in Europe.”

Saturday Tunes.

It is a rainy,dreary Saturday but I am not complaining.  I will take rain over snow any day. I have to wait a few weeks before my entire body thaws out from the coldest winter I have experienced at my age,  Also, it is 50 degrees , no wind chills in the teens. Has winter made his exit?

I went on my Facebook page yesterday after a few weeks off and a dearest friend Angelo sent me the first song. Pink Floyd’s, The Great Gig in the Sky. I teared up and got all emo.  I had placed Led Zepplin’s Whole Lotta Love on his wall.  Angelo is one the best DJ’s in South Jersey when I was club hopping.. I should have known you cannot outdo a music man,  A friend for over 25 years, and have always inspired my dance.

In retrospect, my life is The Great Gig in the Sky.

Comfortably Numb, Roger Waters & David Gilmour, Live, London, 2011.

I wished I would have seen the original production of “The Wall” at the Spectrum in Philadelphia.   I was a  4-5th year full-time student at Temple University during the formative/passionate years of Classic Rock and Roll.  My sister-mother from Alpha Gamma Delta worked at 93.3 WMMRJoe Bonadonna,  was on air radio personality during the afternoon I believe Mark Goodman followed him. Joe gave me a not to be sold LP of “The Wall.”  Lots of brilliant rock and roll was exposed in Philly.  WMMR was located on the 2nd or 3rd floor overlooking Rittenhouse Square at 19th and Walnut Streets.  

I hung out there during live broadcasts with friends from Temple..  Now, that I remember, that was totally awesome. But, back in the day no one was superficial. It was always a party. Music was the magic.

But through the power of the Internet, I can relive and research my days of future past.

BTW, can you tell I become inspired  upon brilliant guitar musicians.

Comfortably Numb, Composition, Wiki

According to Rolling Stone, the lyrics came from Roger Waters’ experience when he was injected with tranquilizers for stomach cramps by a doctor prior to playing a Pink Floyd show in Philadelphia on the band’s 1977 In the Flesh tour. “That was the longest two hours of my life,” Waters said, “trying to do a show when you can hardly lift your arm.” The experience gave him the idea which eventually became the lyrics to this song.

The 121212 Concert for Sandy victims, Robin Hood relief effort, Madison Square Garden in New York City was awesome.  Viewed it on Bloomberg HD Channel. It was brilliant. Ticket prices range from $150 to $25,000; the top end sold out immediately. But I went to sleep late since the concert ran over 1am east coast time. McCartney closed it down. But first review I read this AM is that it was Racist. WHAT?  GMAB.

It did not reflect the diversity of New York City and of the people affected by the storm. Really? There is a whole lotta white people on Staten Island still without power. This Hurricane was not racist.  The concert had breaks of video and showed the pubic housing affected, fly overs of the entire Jersey coast line while it gave time for the musicians to set up their instruments. Do you think they played each others band pieces? How the stage people  prepared before every band was brilliant.  McCartney had a new set of strings/guitar every song. Then he went to keyboards. Back down to stage level. Wow.  Endless energy was present from all who participated. The finale had the first responders all up on stage also. Excellent.  They will be the people who will aid the in rebuilding in the years to come.

Getting back to the racist issue.  Why because there was a group of white men?  But  Ms. Keys did perform.  I know she sung that New York song, they debut it during the Empire State Building light show, LED effects.  Did not see the K. West fiasco either. It was a rock concert. London was invited. Not R&B,  pop or rap. I missed the middle of the concert. Will view it at a later date, the file is 8 GB, downloading it as I type. But, there is racism in a benefit concert?

I attended Live Aid in Philly at the demolished JFK, that held over a 100,000 outdoors. Amnesty International. But this was special.  This hit home.  It was at the Garden. I never was at the Garden.  I lived at the Spectrum from 1972 forward.

Bruce and Jon are Jersey boys.  I worked from Keyport down to Atlantic City. Vacationed in Long Beach Island, Beach Haven Crest to Ocean City. It is in ruins.

I saw Bruce singing with Bon Jovi.  Jon was holding himself back at times during Born to Run.  Then Bruce interjected the lyrics of into Jon’s tune. Priceless moments. Nirvana playing instrumentals with McCartney.. My son corrected me, the musicians from The Foo Fighters. Kurt Cobane has passed. Can’t wait to view  Roger Waters with Eddie Vedder. Eddie Vedder does that cover Comfortably Numb. He got a chance to perform it with its originator. That is what made the night so special.

Bruce played at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Yeap, right on the boardwalk. I worked on that boardwalk in the winter of 94′. It is a Jersey thing. It is in ruins totally destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.

Rock is so Alive.  Rock isn’t racist either.

PS. I wonder how the dressing rooms were prepared, what rocker was next to whom? These men have 5 decades of Star Power. Maybe they will do a video of the interactions behind stage.

It was viewed in approximately 22 countries.  Broadcast to nearly 2 billion people around the world.  It was awesome. Lighting, set design. So totally awesome.

This concert will never happen again. It will take many years to rebuild the Jersey Shore and New York’s coast to the Atlantic Ocean.

Great Video Below Minus Hussein in the photo-op right before his reelection.  He did not allocate extra money to New Jersey relief. Christie was  foolish in thinking other wise. Hussein just used him.
