Note for Cosmic Witches
Tonight is a rather special night, apparently.
You see, tonight is the anniversary of the first manned space flight, commonly known as Yuri’s Night, after the cosmonaut who made the journey, Yuri Gagarin. It’s traditional among geeky space fans to celebrate by stargazing tonight, and the moon being full is a treat, as well.
I’ve only heard about this tradition recently, but reading about it excites me and makes me wish I wasn’t in a city with so much light pollution. I think this a great opportunity to pause and think about humanity’s relationship with the stars, both magically and in terms of our technological endeavors.
I just wanted to share; I think it’s cool, I guess. I’m one of those space geeks, after all, and I’m always prone to contemplating the intersection of magick and technology, and how the advent of things like space travel changed the mental landscape of humanity. I’ve often wondered about the significance of the moon landing in magical terms, too.
Anyways, uh, just wanted to share. There are parties being held in some locations, apparently, but obviously actual stargazing isn’t as possible in cities like Krakow. If you’re in the countryside, why not, though?
