FULL MOON AND CHRISTMAS UNITE IN CANCER AT 11:11 UTC
The earthly and the celestial events united this Christmas Day at an auspicious 11:11 time UTC/GMT, signifying both Masters’ presence and Rebirth, just like the one that took place 2015+ years ago.
Not since 1977 has a full moon dawned in the skies on Christmas. And there will not be another one till 2034. So since most of us will only get a chance to experience something like this perhaps twice in our lifetime, let us welcome, honor and celebrate this rare confluence of physical, spiritual and celestial.
The folks in the British Isles, Iceland, Portugal and Western Africa have a chance to do so at exactly 11:11 on their watches and clocks. And only New Zealanders were left out. By the time the Full Moon was at its apex, it was be already Dec 26 there.
11:11 In Numerology
11:11 is the universe’s way of urging us to pay attention to our heart, our soul and our inner intuition. It’s serving as a wake-up call to us so that opportunities are not missed in this lifetime. Sort of like a Rebirth or a second chance to pay attention to the synchronicities around us. For, they are signs of Spirit presence. And in case of the Number 11, the Masters’ guidance in our lives.
Over here at the Rainbow Shower in Maui, the celestial Christmas show started on Christmas Eve with this sunset rainbow…
MUSICAL CHRISTMAS CARD
And this is my musical Christmas card – two variations from Carmina Burana.
I just finished playing them “live” here at the Rainbow Shower, so I thought you might also enjoy this recording of it I made in Sep 2014.

Christmas Full Moon Rising
I feared we would miss it. With all the rain and clouds we had been having today, I was not sure I would get to see this auspicious Full Moon that appears at Christmas only every so many decades.
But something made me step out to the lanai to take a look. Miraculously, the rain had stopped. Momentarily, I am sure. And I could feel, more than see, the moonglow through the clouds.
I needn’t have rushed. Because by the time I got back out, clouds had obscured the moon. Undaunted, I decided to wait them out.
Sure enough, after a few minutes, Mama Quilla (Mother Moon), La Luna, showed up again, this time bright and beautiful bathing everything in its bluish milky light.
The reflection off our solar panels was a bonus. Made it seem as if was reflecting off ice.
And then, Elizabeth called to say goodnight after her big Christmas Eve party in AZ. She is flying back home to Maui early tomorrow morning.
I looked at the time of her call: 11:11 (AZ time). 🙂 The official Full Moon time as 11:11 UTC.
PS: For the photo enthusiasts, both picture were taken freehand, without a tripod. The left one with the iPhone special NightCap Pro app, the right one with a Canon G12. Both were slightly edited.

CHRISTMAS MORNING IN MAUI: MOONSET AND SUNRISE COINCIDE
I was awakened this morning around 6 AM. It felt like it was still nighttime. But a mellow outside light gave the windows a milky glow.
“The full moon, moonset…” entered my consciousness as I was slowly waking up.
I felt too sleepy to get up and look. But the outside light worked like a magnet to draw me out of bed and onto the lanai.
The sight of a setting Moon was breathtaking. The sky was clear. Yet the rain must have evidently just stopped. Because the lanai was very wet.
That’s when I realized there will be no more sleeping for me on this Christmas morning. So went inside to get the cameras.
A few minutes later, I drove some 5 miles west to Ho’okipa Point to try to catch the moonset over the ocean and the sunrise that was happening simultaneously.
By the time I got back to the Rainbow Shower, it seemed the sun was rising once again over the mountain on whose slopes our property lies.
So here are some of the shots I brought home. This is just a preview from one of the two cameras.
MOONSET GIF TAKEN AT HO’OKIPA POINT, MAUI
I shot this video “by accident” this morning while trying to take a photo… and yet it captured the waning moments of a setting Christmas full moon. Just for one second. No accident, I guess?
You can also see the surfers in the water even at that early hour (6:54 AM), before the sun had even come up.
