My husband and I couldn’t figure out why this little guy was MIA, and hadn’t been trying to get into the birdseed and suet feeders lately. Now we know!
What does it mean when you see a blue jay in your yard?
In animal symbolism, the blue jay resonates truth, faithfulness, and solidarity because they are vigilant in their tasks. They also keep the same mate for life, which is symbolic of endurance, patience and loyalty. … In the spiritual realm, the blue jay speaks of clarity and vision.
This is a photo of the full supermoon that I took shortly after 5:00 this morning. This is the first of two supermoons that we will be having this month. The next supermoon, on January 31 will also be a “blue moon” – along with a lunar eclipse.
Some important things to remember to take time for in 2018!
Counting my blessings and wishing you more. May 2018 bring you happiness, love and good health. Happy New Year!
I took this moon photo at 4:00 a.m. this morning – 96 percent illuminated. Tomorrow we will be starting out the New Year with a full supermoon, and it will be closely followed by another just a few weeks later.
In case you don’t remember, a “supermoon” occurs when the moon appears bigger and brighter in the sky. A supermoon occurs when the moon becomes full on the same day that it reaches its perigree, the point in the moon’s elliptical orbit when it is closest to Earth.
During these events, the moon generally appears to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than a typical full moon. They typically occur about every 13 months.
But if you miss the supermoon on New Year’s Day, don’t worry. On January 31, another supermoon is set to light up the sky – making it, a “blue supermoon.”
The second full moon in a single month is called a blue moon, and they occur about every two and a half years.
Even the blue jays don’t like the snow! This is a photo I took of a blue jay shielding himself from the snowfall yesterday.
