|Lady of Lourdes, The Moon|
Mysteries of Mary Tarot Deck
December 8, Mary Feast Day of
the Immaculate Conception
She said to Bernadette :
Je suis l'immaculee concepcion
I took these photographs at Lourdes
during the full moon in September 2014.
I had already seen the amazing full moon
on the 7th September at the Notre Dame
and did not expect to see it two nights
later at the procession at Lourdes.
It was a most vivid red-pink -
my limited phone camera could not capture
its luminosity and colour.
I only took these two photographs
as I thought I would take some more the
following evening, but alas, the next night
was a cloudy one!

This extract from
The Life and Mission of the Blessed Virgin by
Early religions stressed the importance of the divine feminine,
publicly dramatized, usually in the worship of the
Moon goddess or the goddess of Heaven.
The Moon astrologically governs the sign Cancer, and both
governs the waters of the world and their psychical equivalent, the
emotions. (The word' mare' in Latin means ocean or sea)
