Earlier in the year I commented that 2009 was going to be a special year, a year with 13 moons. Last night we could witness the first of two full moons during this month of December; the second full moon will occur on the last day of this year. The two December moons will bring the year’s total to 13 moons.
I happened to revisit Robert Graves‘ Mallorcan home a few days ago, Ca n’Alluny in Deià. Graves’s White Goddess of Birth, Love and Death is inspired and represented by the phases of the moon. Señor Graves was an expert in matters of the moon in Mallorca.
The Mayan holy calendar is known as Thirteen Moons Calendar, measuring time by combining cycles of sun and moon. That calendar is based on concepts of lunation, tides and human biorhythms, similar to the female cyclical patterns.
