19 Dec Full Moon in Dec

Thursday 18th November is the Beaver Full Moon meditation. The Full Moon peaks at 08:58 on Friday 19th, when we also have a penumbral eclipse, the first of two eclipses in the next 30 days.

Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

This month we have an eclipse; part of analmost tetrad" (link to timeanddate.com for details), when a series of four major lunar eclipses in two years. Starting in May this year, three of these eclipses are total, while the one taking place early tomorrow UK time, is a deep partial eclipse, that is so deep that it is nearly a total eclipse. It will be visible in  Austalia, North and South America parts of Asia and europe. It's visible in the Uk between 06.02 and 07.24 then it will disappear behind the horizon.

Even when we don't see an eclipse, it affects us energetically. Eclipses bring an opportunity for deep transformation; allow it to help you discover better clarity, understanding and more inner contentment.

If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel. Click here for Angela McGerr's Full Moon Angelic Meditation with Gabriel from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book which is long out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop.

At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition. The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook.

Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

18 Nov FULL MOON MeditationAs the peak of the Full Moon is at 08:58 on Friday 19th, we will hold our monthly Full Moon  meditation on Thursday 18th November at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT). Participants all receive a deeply healing experience. 

During these monthly sessions, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness.

This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme. And, most importantly, it's a step towards making a difference to the global predicament. Cost to participate is £20 by online BACS payment (small admin fee added for PayPal) or half price to RSE graduates. Book at the Harmony Shop.

The Native American tribes named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. The November Moon is caled the Beaver Moon, as this is when they bulid their dams. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. This was noted as the month when game fattens. See more at timeanddate.com.

Although the Celts, wth their Druid priests, were believed to have revered nature, the idea that they also had tree names for each Full Moon of the year, is neo-Pagan, having been introduced by Robert Graves in the 1948, which I find rather charming. So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings, This is the Reed Moon (thoughtco.com). Samhain (Halloween, 31st October) hhas passed and the year is coming to a close. Reeds were used by the Celts to make wind

Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing balance and wellbeing into our lives.  I have a lunar alignment course running at he moment, the next lunar cycle study course will be in 2022.

instruments and at this time of year, as the wind blows through the dying reeds (they die back in winter), and the resulting eerie haunting sound was thought to be the souls of the departed on their final journey to the underworld. The Celts called this month Negatal (pronounced nyettle) and it's a time for magical relating to spirit guides, meditation, energy work and honouring the cycle of life - birth, death and re-birth.  It's also a good time for scrying and divination. The neo pagans sometimes refer to this month by it's alternative name of Elm Moon.

Other names for a Full Moon in November are: Frost Moon, Hunter's Moon, Mourning Moon or Flower Moon, (Southern Hemisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Full Moon could also be called the Harvest Moon, or Hunter’s Moon, Frosty Moon, Beaver Moon (after the autumnal equinox) or Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Planting Moon, or Milk Moon, Rose Moon, Flower Moon, or Strawberry Moon (after the spring equinox). Source = earthsky.org.
