Full Frost Moon

fullfrostmoon

Today is the Full Frost Moon, also known as The Snow Moon, Beaver Moon, Cold Moon, and Mourning Moon. This Full Moon is in the sign of Taurus.

Finances are illuminated on this Full Moon to watch what we are spending and to improve or bring in an extra income. We must become empowered to make the changes necessary to shift our situation. It is up to us and the time is now. As we let go and surrender to the deeper current that is transforming us, we are reminded to relax into the waters of tranquility and appreciate the depth of experience that our life journey has brought us.

The earth sign of Taurus symbolizes values, material security, possessions, beauty, tranquility, and self-worth. There is the potential to concentrate and remain steadfast when working with the higher potential of Taurus. This practical sign is in no rush to get anywhere, rather it wants to indulge itself in sensual pleasures such as savory foods, exquisite fabrics, delightful fragrances, and harmonious sounds.

During the Full Moon in Taurus, why not ease yourself into a state of being which is feeling gratitude for whatever is in your life rather than fixated on the lack of it. Think about what changes you can make deep within you to promote the change you want in your relationship, work and life. Before you see the change in your world, change needs to occur within you first. You can sabotage your own success by resisting change. Being stubborn can appear as strength on the surface. In truth, this can be your fear masking your needed changes.

This Full Moon gives us access to tremendous power and healing ability. This is the feminine power continuum. The Sun is in the sign of Scorpio the water sign. The water/earth polarity of emotion and practical manifestation are here, we can use it to delve into some cold, hard truths about ourselves and transform what has gone before by opening our hearts to our true self, the power of love, Our self-esteem, our self-worth, our safety and feelings of security and comfort, what is truly valuable to us, and the connection to our material possessions and finances. All of this is up for scrutiny.

It takes courage and a desire to heal. Let the Taurus Moon lead you to nature, Mother Earth and the beauty, love, and support available through her. The feminine is being hugely empowered now and along with that comes the need to clear out our emotional filters and distorting veils with forgiveness and gratitude for the re-balancing of the Masculine and Feminine on the planet. Ruled by feminine Venus, she brings to Taurus the sensuous, the beautiful, and the ability to magnetize what she desires to her. We are magnets to our desire now, and we have the power to attract what we want toward us.

This Full Moon look into yourself and ask yourself what you need to move forward, ask yourself how you are going to achieve this and ask yourself if you feel that you are strong enough to do this. If you feel you are not strong enough, use the energy of this Full Moon to heal and gain strength. Ask the Goddess for guidance and to lead the way to more positive and happier life.

Tonight is a good time to determine just what you value and want to stand for, create in your life and carry forth into the next cycle of your evolution.

Have a blessed Full Moon. May the Goddess watch over you.

The Mourning Moon

In November, the Mourning Moon is upon us. It’s also known as the Fog Moon or Snow Moon, depending on where you live. Some Native American tribes referred to it simply as The Moon When Deer Shed Antlers (although in most regions, it’s more accurate to say they’re shedding their velvet – a buck doesn’t usually lose antlers until later in the winter, unless you’re very far north.). In the early Celtic society, November was the beginning of the new year. Why not use the magic of this moon phase to celebrate new beginnings?

Correspondences:

  • Colors: Gray, blues
  • Gemstones: Lapis lazuli, turquoise, topaz
  • Trees: Cypress, alder, hazel
  • Gods: Bastet, Isis, Kali, Hecate, Astarte
  • Herbs: Thistle, betony, verbena, fennel
  • Element: Water

This is a time of washing away the baggage of the past and letting it go. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to focus on the joys of the future. During the Mourning Moon phase, say goodbye to bad habits and toxic relationships, and get a fresh start for the new year. Work on developing and strengthening your connection with Deity.
