The Stormy Moon



July's full moon has come and gone.  It has made its magic and done its damage.  July, I read, is the stormiest month.  It has been here.  I wonder what they mean?

I've had too much champagne and whiskey and chocolate cake.  It is time for reclamation of some type.  I look around and think, "I must do something."

One thing I want to reclaim is photography.  New Mexico is made of aluminum.  I mean, there are many trailers there.  In my own home state, however, trailer parks are disappearing.  I would like to photograph them before they are gone.  Tough.  A huge commitment.  I would have to get permission not only of the people who live there but of the owners and managers of trailer parks, too.  You can't just walk in with a camera and not expect trouble.  But I have been in trailer homes.  They are unique places, not like any other place at all.  I envision photographing people sitting by praying hands lamps and portraits of pets.  Doilies, perhaps.  I want to get to know the people who live there.

I shouldn't have said so, though.  It is a huge commitment, probably one of which I am not capable.  Not just now.

The full moon July 2017 astrology is as intense as it gets. Moon and Pluto opposite Sun and Mars creates such intensely hot energy that it will be difficult to control. This dangerous full moon has the potential to cause serious relationships problems if you let things get out of control. 
The July 2017 full moon could cause threats, violence, displays of power, murder, invasions, overthrows and war. There is, however, a real chance of compromise and peace between lovers and between nations.

 It is still July, still the stormy month.  Summer is a danger here.  I toss and turn and always fret.  These are not the gentle months.  Troubles are many and pleasures are few.  Sounds like lyrics in an old soul song.  It is the south.  Like Faulkner said, we endure.
