"A great love is a lot like a good memory. When it’s there, and you know it’s there, but it’s just out of your reach, it can be all that you think about. You can focus on it, and try to force it, but the more you do, the more you seem to push it away. But if you’re patient, and you hold still, then maybe… Just maybe… It will come to you"
Waverly Hills Sanitorium
Rumored to be one of the scariest places in america, Waverly Hills began construction in 1908 and opened for business in 1910 as a small two story hospital. The hospital was, after much construction and expansion in 1924 due to the spread of tuberculosis, considered one of the most well equipped hospitals of it’s time. It could accommodate 400 patients at the time. However, in 1961, the cure for TB was released and rendered the facilities obsolete. In 1962, the hospital was reopened under a new name but eventually was closed down by the state in 1980.
The hospital was so large, that it was considered its own community by the state, and even had it’s own zipcode! Although the community was great, treatments were not. Since there were not antibiotics quite yet, doctors were constantly using experimental treatments on patients that were often painful and left many scars. Some patients were even disfigured. Many treatments proved fatal. The most popular feature of this hospital was infamously named the body chute, which was a long dark tunnel used to carry the dead bodies out of the hospital discreetly as not to lower the morale of the patients.
There are literally hundreds of different reports of different ghosts being seen in the hospital, which isn’t surprising considering the size of the place. People have seen a little boy on the third floor, rolling a ball. People have even seen a ball rolling on its own from one room to the next. Many people have reported seeing multiple shadow people around the building. It is not odd to see several in one area at one time. Others have reported seeing a woman with her wrists slit screaming “someone save me”.
Room 502 seems to be a hot spot in the hospital. Legend has it, the room was the site of two suicides by nurses. One hanged herself, while the other jumped out of the window. Many people have experienced seeing a woman hanging or sitting in the corner crying and rocking back and forth. Additionally, many people have heard voices and have even reported being physically pushed. People outside of the building have also witnessed a woman falling from a window and disappearing before reaching the ground.
Within the body chute, people have reported seeing people running, hearing crying, and hearing people whispering or laughing.
The building is currently only used for tours and paranormal investigations. It has been on several different popular shows on the paranormal, and has now be bought and is to be renovated and turned into a “haunted hotel.”
Personally, I can’t imagine anything still residing in that hospital being too pleased about the renovations…
Today is the second New Moon in January making it a Black Moon. The Celts and the Druids seen a Black Moon as a time of great changes and of good luck. This Black Moon is extra special as it is also a Supermoon meaning it is much closer to the earth than at any other time. This will make tides higher than normal, it will also make our emotions feel heightened.
The Aquarius New Moon represents freedom and liberation. Liberate your mind first and your freedom will follow. Aquarius reminds you to follow the beat of your own drum. Be unique. Be original. Be who you really are. Take a walk on the weird side of life. You may find a part of yourself that has been begging for expression. This is the Antiquarian New Moon message.
A new cycle is beginning for you. The Aquarius New Moon can empower you to move in a bold direction. You may break free from bad habits and relationships. You are no longer distracted by fear and doubt. You are ready to be who you were born to be. This is a time of great luck, so go out and try new things, use this lucky time to grow businesses, start new jobs, go to interviews, find a new love.
Change your mind. You change your life. See your challenges from a different perspective. See your challenges as opportunities for growth. They keep your life fresh and lively. Your life can be much freer than you may have realized. In this way, new opportunities will emerge for you. Believe in your dreams coming true. Believe when you wish upon a Star your dreams come true. The Star is shinning on you. The New Moon is lighting up a new path way for you. Perhaps it was there all along and now your eyes are opened.
The SuperMoons strengthen the impact for change. This is setting the tone for the New Year. Get out of your own way. Move out of your comfort zone. Make bold beginnings. Uranus is encouraging you to have a fresh start. Be innovative. Don’t allow the negative ego to hold back your dreams. Listen to your intuition. You intuition is your inner knowledge. Allow your Higher Self to guide you to new relationships and goals. Sudden unexpected opportunities can come to you from out of the blue.
There are new perspectives to be enjoyed now and this Moon reminds us that no matter how far we may have strayed from where we want to be we can always get back there as long as there is hope and the will to move and grow yourself.
The Black Moon opens a portal to other dimensions. Honored by Wiccans and various schools of Magic, the Black Moon is a fertile time to connect with spirits and other realms and the planes where the ascended masters walk. It augurs a cycle of mystery and magic, even more mystical than the Blue Moon. The double New Moons are associated with higher consciousness, altered states of awareness and hidden wisdom. Use the energy well.
Have a Blessed New Moon and may the Goddess watch over you.
