So I was thinking about the moon last night and how it’s such a prominent symbol in magick.
Currently the moon affects the tides and we try to balance eggs on the equinoxes because the gravitational pull changes things for us here on earth.
What would happen if the moon were way closer to the earth than it is now? What kind of crazy “magical” shit would be possible, especially when the pull is the greatest?
This got me thinking about a distant past where things were affected way more by the moon, which may have lead to the idea of the moon being magical being jammed so far up our collective unconscious. Even in our artwork depictions of the moon are often ridiculously huge. I fell asleep and dreamed about witches flying on brooms because lunar gravity woowoo.
The next day, I wake up and Google whether the moon is getting closer or farther away, but I felt like I already knew the answer.
Sure enough, the moon is getting farther away. This means in the past it was much closer.
Then I Googled balancing eggs on the equinox (debunked) and I see another tradition I never even heard of. Balancing BROOMS on the equinox.
Well that’s weird, ha ha.
Did things used to be possible in ancient times which are no longer possible and some part of us remembers this?
