There were seven of us in the boat. We have life jackets, I’m not stupid. But the day is really warm and the jackets are sticky, so they stay off but are kept handy. We enjoy the sun and the wind. I carefully steer the river boat, a new one I brought from a local man who builds these, down the Kalum past the other boaters to where the Kalum River joins the Skeena River. Some boats are going downstream, fishing rods already into their holders.
Why follow the moon? In astrology, the moon rules our feelings, habits and instincts. Knowing what sign and phase the moon is in gives you the chance to harness the moon’s energy to your advantage – to know when the best, most effective time is for taking action, romance, relaxing or when to avoid certain things. Also, if you’re more tuned into the moon’s energy, it gives you a heads up of how the moon will be affecting you on an emotional level.
