When I first discovered Jamie Ridler last year, it was through Wishcasting and creating Full Moon Dream Boards. It was through Jamie that I became familiar with the idea of creating a vision board and using collage to manifest our hopes and dreams. I’m not really all that comfortable – still – with collage, even though I have a ton of magazines that are just gathering dust here in the house. I keep meaning to go through them and tear out pictures and words – putting them into files so that when I am ready to do collage or create a vision board, they are all there for me – but I haven’t gotten around to doing that.
In the meantime, particularly for the creation of my Full Moon dream boards, I’ve found that I really enjoy using Pinterest to create my board. With Pinterest, I can meditate on the question that the Full Moon asks. Once I feel like I’ve got an answer to the Full Moon’s question, then I can begin to winnow it down to the essential pieces of it. I find that it’s kind of like my dissertation research, in which I collected a bunch of information, and then began winnowing it down until I had just a few key elements. Once I have those essential pieces or those keywords, then I can begin searching for pins that help me clarify my dreams.
While there are several interpretations for the Full Buck Moon, along with their differing ideas of the questions that the Full Moon is asking us, I went with the Jamie’s question, although I also like the explanation here and here. Once I knew what question I was answering or what to think about with regard to the full moon, I began pinning images and came up with the following:

I chose images that relate to the dreams that I want most – to be a writer, to take great pictures (maybe make a tiny bit of money at both of them), emotional security and stability, family. They are the things that come to me again and again and again. They are the things that keep creeping up in the back of my skull, inching up my spine and coming to rest in that little notch where the two meet. It’s what I hear again and again when I am quiet enough to listen. They are the things that Sweet Husband is saying to me again and again, “If that’s what you want, I’m OK with it. Do it, but give it 100%. Find some little shit job that gives us enough to pay the bills and put all the rest of your energy into that thing that you want. Be a writer if you want to be a writer. I’m good with that.”
As the Super Moon has risen, and now it is just left to let the Universe work her magic.
