ESPN shared a factoid this morning: golf is the only sport that’s been played on the moon! You’re probably asking yourself, where’s he going with this post? Or, wait a second; Tony watches ESPN?
Space links aside, one doesn’t have to be an astronaut to have a grasp of the moon’s special energies and forces. My late grandmother, or Mama, as I called her, once shared with me stories of how her own father, a man with limited formal education, studied the moon’s powers. He, like many men of his generation, raised crops and he consulted The Old Farmer’s Almanac for lunar cycles, as they influenced ideal times to plant and harvest.
I relished listening to Mama’s tales of her rural Alabama childhood. “Since I was the oldest of the kids,” she said, “daddy took me under his wing. Not only did he teach me how to care for the land, with chores like tilling and sowing, he let me read his almanac.”
With its 2017 edition, The Old Farmer’s Almanac celebrates 225 years of being published. Devoted readers delve into pages of facts and figures, which still include the magic of the moon. I recall my grandmother saying, “The moon was considered the farmer’s beacon.”
During our conversation, I told Mama a little bit about my spiritual career and work as a psychic medium, expecting her to have questions. There were none; instead, she said, “What you’re doing isn’t so newfangled. You’re actually in touch with ancient wisdoms, kind of like how my daddy observed the moon.”
Her response was far from par for the course!
Love and light,
