By the Light of the Lavender Moon

Night Sky Storytelling

August 17th, 2021

The waxing crescent Moon has slipped into the underworld kingdom of Scorpio, on its way to true blue Full Moon phase, but not before it passes through its Lavender stage, that in between place where we are invited to wake into dreams and experience life's deepest mysteries. Tonight, we may yet catch a stray Perseid as we gather under the thickest region of Milky Way stars to hear the tales of the night.
