The Autumnal Equinox Full Moon!

Dear Family & Friends,

Celebrate tonight with meditation, positive words and the warmth of loving community! Why? Because the long hours of the moon’s “pull” on all the water elements here on earth – especially in us humans – can raise tides and emotions to the max.

Tonight is the only full moon night of the month when the moon is visible from just after sunset all the way to sunrise.

The Algonquin Native American tribes referred to October’s Moon as the Full Hunter’s Moon because it marks the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. The Hunter’s Moon is always the first full Moon after the Harvest Moon, which is the closest full moon to the autumnal equinox.

Since the harvesters have reaped the fields, hunters can easily see the animals that have come out to forage. Other tribes named this the Full Traveler’s Moon and the Dying Grass Moon.

In India it is celebrated happily by several spiritual paths as it marks the end of the monsoon season, so a blessing indeed!

Looking at the planetary numerology for this month in this year’s 11 cycle, October (a 3 Cycle) is the time we must sharpen not our bows but our laughter and happy thoughts. We need to capture and project positive consciousness, and happiness sounds do that best. So tonight we chant with joy and meditate to build our strong and welcoming community together.

Bless you all in all ways always!

Sangeet

Compatibility and Support Information for Computers / Smart Phone / Tablets

Please note that on some computers, phones and tablets the video can take up to 60 seconds to start (it is buffering the video stream).

Video support for mobile devices ("smart" phones and tablets) is often iffy because they use the newer and currently less compatible "HTML5" video instead of Flash.

Desktop/laptop computers (Windows, Mac and Linux) work best because they come with Adobe Flash Player. Please check that you have a very recent version of Flash. Video support for mobile devices, however, is often iffy. Mac users often have problems with the built-in browser "Safari". Install Google's "Chrome" browser or Mozilla's "Firefox" browser and use either one of those instead. (The difference between those two mostly has to do with privacy -with Chrome, being from Google, you surrender all your privacy [same as using Safari] and Firefox, being from the Mozilla Foundation, you retain much of your privacy.)

Android Smart Phone and Tablet users -In the recent versions of Andriod the built-in browser is called "Chrome." It is most compatible and usually works very well. If the video is not playing correctly, then there is not really anything that can be done other than try a desktop computer if one is nearby -that may work better for you.

Firefox-for-Andriod (free and found in the Google Play store) usually works well. We personally use Firefox-for-Android on our Android devices rather than the built-in brower (for a number of reasons including better privacy and also better compatibility with HTML 5 video). So you might want to give it a try!

iPads and iPhones purchased within the past year or so usually work fine with the video. Older versions often struggle to keep a reliable video connection and there really isn't a way to fix it.

In general, though, if the video stops and there is just a black box without a big "Play" button in the middle of it, "refreshing" your browser usually re-starts the video. Unfortunately, interruptions during live broadcasts are usually unavoidable. However, with the new cutting-edge technology we're using in 2016 combined with you using a computer / smart phone / tablet less than 2 years old can minimized interruptions and in some cases avoid them all together. It is just the nature of this young technology, but it will improve in the coming years.
