as a one-time bartender – and bar-attender! – i know for damn sure that people get a little freaky when it is a full moon. it should come as no surprise, even to those of us who are not superstitious. after all, the moon pulls the oceans’ tides with massive power, are not unrelated to menses, and as any bartender will tell you, makes people act damn crazy.
however, today is the new moon, a time for setting intentions, a sober look into the coming lunar month. i still want a drink, but there you go. so, if you have any promises you want to keep to yourself, consider this your friendly opportunity extended by black moon, welcoming the unknown possibilities that only come in darkness.
