Wake up call: red moon rising

So I'm up at 3:45 this morning, and there's no fog...
Dim up in the sky hangs the eclipsed moon, dark red and orange...



I'm wide awake, so I start to wonder what our dear old friend Rudolph Steiner and his creation -Anthroposophy (and "biodynamics")- had to say about eclipses, particularly lunar eclipses. Certainly, it must've been something sublime and insightful, no? Does it portend a decline in the Moon influence and signal a day where we can combat mold & fungi more effectively? Is it a day in which we must exorcise the lunar demons to free the solar influence to be "rayed back" upon us?
Are there ritual to be performed of any type....?
After all, these are the two diametrically opposed celestial powers which somehow influence all life on earth...that HAS to be worth mentioning and discussing with his erstwhile diciples...these two celestial bodies rule supreme over his universe!

Off I head to the internet and to my copy of his 1924 agricultural lectures...

Nothing. Not a peep about eclipses...

Even if they are opposed forces, one would expect the eclipse days to be described as "caution" days, or perhaps days where no activity should take place as the universe was "unsettled", or in "flux" and without clear direction - a "rest day", if you will....

Nope. Nothing. Nada.

What bunk that all is, to ignore what must fit into your philosophical system somewhere...but then again, maybe he was just too busy describing how to skin young field-mice to make a cure all "pepper" to rid yourself of those same field-mice...

Dear God...the herbs might be worth a damn, but crystals?
Wait a minute!
It wasn't "crystal meth", was it?
Reminds me of the superstition 2,000 years ago that amethysts could cure or ward off poisons...

Get out the love beads & tie-dye, I fear we're doomed to repeat history yet again.

The beauty of anyone offering such a wine is that they can reuse the crystals indefinitely, as they'll never really be changed by their exposure to the wine.
What genius!
