13 Moons.

I am fascinated with the 13 moons in a year theory. There have been 13 full moons in 2007,2008, and 2009 with 13 full moons (with a Blue Moon on 31 Dec). The theory is that 13 full moons in a year brings very bad weather, due to the effect of the moon on the tides, and it is interesting to note the last time this happened was 1960, 1961, 1962, which were apparently bad Summers,(I can't remember) followed by the worst Winter in living memory 1962/1963. It will be interesting to see what sort of Winter we are going to have, but then maybe we will revert back to good Summers.

Re:
Frances's Avatar Thank you for this, Tiggy, it is just the sort of thing that gets my interest. I didn't know until now that our coming New Year's Eve will also feature a full moon. Oh my.

What do you think about the recent confirmation that there really is water on the moon?

Thank you, also, for your wonderful posts over in the forum area. xo

Re:
Ivy's Avatar Must be a local British thing Tiggy here the summers in 2008and 9 were fantastic and last winter was okay, well not enough snow for my liking and no frozen lakes for iceskating but not particularly bad either. Maybe it is so different because Britain is surrounded by sea, the best we get is being sandwiched between Baltic and North sea.

Re:
Ivy's Avatar P.S. Faith a blue moon is a second full moon within one month. Does not happen very often therefor the saying " once in a blue moon"

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Something that I remember from the dim and distant past was that the Latin expression for once in a blue moon was (apparently) 'cum mula puperit' (when a mule foals), which I gather they do do, once in a blue moon. On the 13 moons - surely this ought to have an astrological significance?

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar It is interesting isn't it.
Him Outdoors' work with the dolphins is tied closely to the tides and the tides are tied even closer to the moon phases so we live our life by the moon and tides, his watch doesn't tell the time it shows the moon phase and the tidal state!...some people are often surprised to find there's even a link between the two.
The link between the moon and the weather is so noticeable by the sea...if its horrible weather and low tide in the morning you can be assured 9 times out of 10 it will improve on the turn of the tide in the afternoon( or of course get even worse if the mornings gloom WAS the good spell!!!)

Re:
Tiggywinkle's Avatar I haven't a clue about astrology Fennie, and I have no idea what water on the moon means Frances, but I have an interest in listening to old farmers re the moon and moon planting etc. I have some recollection that we should sleep with the bed facing North, and by walking on grass with morning dew we earth ourselves. All to do with our electro-magnetic fields. I must try to find my notes. All very interesting.
Ivy, maybe because Ireland and England are Islands, the 13 moons affect us more, I really don't know.
