She sparkles, shimmers, and dances~

The words on this photograph (from our walkabout shoot) are from Robert Graves' The White Goddess: A Historical Grammar of Poetic Myth. 
The book is a poem about the White Goddess of Birth, Love and Death, or the Mother Goddess from ancient Celtic pagan mythology based on the moon phases. 
Beautiful & inspiring words & poetry. 
I am preparing for the biggest full moon of the year coming up this Sunday. The Supermoon occurs when the moon hits its full phase at the same time it makes its closest approach to Earth for the month. It's going to be magical! 
The powerful Moon Goddess is associated with conception, fertility, controlling waters, weather, and rebirth. She goes by many names: Luna (Roman), Isis (Egypt), Inanna (Sumeria), Asherah (Canaanite), Akua-Ba (Ashanti, Africa), Selene (Greece), Hina (Hawaii), Chang-O (China), Artemis (Greece). And there are many ways to celebrate her. "The Moon Goddess' holidays are all the full moons of the year—there are thirteen, not twelve. That is why the number 13 is mystical and definitely good luck, not bad luck!" (The Grandmother of Time)
During the full moon, we can ask her for health, abundance, and wisdom and thank her for her white light in the desert of her starry night.
