Sunrise/Moonset

This morning as the the sun was rising the full moon was setting. Does this event has any special significance in Druidry?

It is a magical moment on those days when the weather is clear enough.
How did it feel to you?
What circumstance put you in that place at that time?
What do you mean by special significance?

I saw a beautiful golden glow of a sunset two days ago, the sun was nowhere in sight but the light was low and pale and everything seemed to be in limbo in the golden light, twighlight, waiting, waiting...
At three am yesterday the full moon was low I could see it behind the silohouette of a willow tree, slow and still, an eerie silence among the stars, dawn breaking, waiting, waiting..

Tonight there will be a lunar eclipse, a perfect time for working with the shadow self.

It happens either side of the equinoxes that the full moon rises as the sun sets and sets as it rises, giving 24 hour light. In the autumn these two moons are known as the Harvest Moon and the Hunter's Moon, but I don't know if the spring equivalents have a name.

Well it is Autumn here in the south and since it also only a few days until Samhuin I decided it was a good time for some divination.
