Moonwise newsletter for Ivy Moon
If you're in Ireland or North or West Britain, I hope ex-Ophelia didn't affect you too badly. We're waiting for storm Brian to hit tonight and tomorrow, so we'll see what happens with that.

If you are lucky enough to be away from cloud tonight (20 October), you might see the Orionid meteors. They should also be there in good form on Saturday night, Sunday morning. Later in the month come the Leonid meteors on 16/17 November. As usual, the best time to see them is in the early hours. On the morning of 17 November, if you have a clear night, you'll also be able to see the old crescent moon close to both Venus and Jupiter in the dawn sky. If you like that sort of thing, it is well worth getting up early for. The two bright planets are actually closest on 13 November. They get pretty close: close enough that you should be able to see Jupiter's moons along with both planets in the same binocular or wide-angle telescope view.

Thank you, everyone, who has bought the new calendars and diaries already. For those of you who haven't yet, there are a few special deals. If you buy three calendars and three diaries, you benefit from all of the deals, and save as much as £12.

Order them from Edge of Time here.

As I know some of you prefer to, you can also now order them from Amazon:
Moonwise Calendar,
Moonwise Diary for Britain & Ireland and
Moonwise Diary for Cornwall / Dydhlyver Furlorel rag Kernow

If you are a fan of the diary, do look at the Cornwall version of the live diary page on the Moonwise website. Because it's a bilingual edition, the astrological events are shown for conciseness in symbol form. There is a key, of course, at the front. Would you prefer this for the Britain & Ireland version as well? It allows a bit more space for writing, and it's clearer, but only if you know the symbols, or don't mind looking them up. Let me know either way at or on the Facebook page

In the month to come, remember to put back the clocks next weekend if you're in Europe (the night of Saturday 28th), and a week later in North America. There is also the big Pagan festival of Samhain on 31 October and 1 November, along with Halloween, All Saints Day, Allantide in Cornwall, and (in Britain in general) Guy Fawkes Night a few days later.

It is better for me, and cheaper for you, if you buy your calendars and diaries from Edge of Time. A small amount of money also goes to charity, via our payment portal Charity Clear. But I know some of you prefer to buy from Amazon, because it so well-known. The links are shown above.

If you want, you can also order them from your local bookshop, especially as the calendar now has an ISBN for the first time. Here are the ISBNs for the 2018 calendars and diaries:
Moonwise Calendar 978-1-911521-13-6
Moonwise Diary for Britain & Ireland 978-1-911521-14-3
Moonwise Diary for Cornwall / Dydhlyver Furlorel rag Kernow 978-1-911521-15-0

Please do make comments on our Facebook page, and share what you think of the calendar and diary on social media. The more people who buy them, the longer these calendars and diaries can go on.
