Wow is there a lot of supernatural survival cosmic awesomeness going on this weekend.
Not only is today the Summer Solstice (in the northern hemisphere*) which many in the modern world only think of as the longest day but in fact it’s also a big day for Witches! It’s probably one of the top 3 witchiest days in the whole calendar**. It is also a big deal for pagans as all solstice/equinoxy events are (as astutely pointed out by Survivor Archaea Venomtongue).
But it is also the Dyan Full Moon*** which also happens to be a Super Moon****! and not just a super moon but the biggest super moon of the year.
Super Lunar Lycanthropic Lunacy and Witchy Werewolfy wildness will likely ensue so beware while being were.
Clues for the Survivor Of The Month will be going up here over the next couple of days and the Survivor of the Month will be announced on Monday.
* For survivors in the southern hemisphere look back to this article and this article to see how to deal with the Winter Solstice.
** I sense that I will soon be writing a blog post about the top 3 witchiest days on the calendar…
*** For more info on what exactly a Dyan Moon is check out these articles from my wolfy pals over at YourLupineLife.com:
**** What’s a Super Moon? That’s when the Moon is both Full AND at perigee (the closest part of its orbit to the Earth). The more they coincide the more super the Super Moon. To track when these are going to happen get the free Lupine Life app for iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
SOTM clues to follow… soonish…
My apologies for the delay in getting the Survivor of the month clues up. The super moon has caused some significant supernatural issues. Issues that have caused collateral damage sufficient to disrupt both the power systems and the network connection here at Survivor HQ.
Graham and I are just getting our systems back online so I hope things will be back to normal soon and I can finish updating the site.
Until then survivors keep on keeping on.
UPDATE – I managed to get things working well enough to be able to deal with a few replies to survivors but now I have to head out to deliver so pizza for the lunch rush so that hungry downtown office workers can survive until supper time. (just one of the many survival services I provide – I am putting in a few extra shifts to save up for a new camera) But I’ll be back later today to continue this article. – Seth
UPDATE #2 – I am back from the watery death pit and am FINALLY about to put up the survivor of the month announcement. Due to the delays caused by my incarceration in the belly of a giant lake monster we are going to skip the clues this month and go straight into the unveiling. That and my notes for the clues are extremely waterlogged and partially digested. Short version of the story I had to deliver some pizzas out near the lake and thought I would take a brief break before heading back to see if I could get a few pictures of lake monster that a some local residents claimed to have spotted. I was able to get a few good ones including one particularly good closeup of the inside of its mouth before finding myself with a number of fish and a used tire in a dark damp room that I later determined to be the belly of the monster. I guess I must have smelled like the shrimp and mushroom pizzas I had just delivered so if you are not into getting swallowed whole by giant lake monsters I suggest following the rules of waiting 60 minutes after eating (for the smell of food to dissipate) before swimming. It took me a while but I was eventually able to escape and make my way back to Survival HQ. Keep checking back for more details about my adventure. Unfortunately there won’t be any pictures as my iPhone is not functioning very well after spending a week in the belly of a lake monster. – Seth
