When is the next Full Moon?

December 12, 2019 - Full Cold Moon

In Native American cultures, which tracked the calendar by the Moons, December’s Full Moon is known as the Full Cold Moon. December is the month when winter truly begins in most of the Northern Hemisphere. Most of the ancient Full Moon names are related to the low temperatures and darkness of December. It is fittingly associated with the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. This Full Moon is a reminder that our possibilities are endless, and that there are always opportunities waiting for us on the other side of the horizon. Always Remember: You hold the key to your success!

December 12, 2019 Full Cold Moon – Pink Light and Loving Kindness!

December 12, 2019 - Full Cold Moon

During a Full Moon, the Moon is 100% illuminated as seen from Earth and is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. The Moon will be visible throughout the night sky rising at sunset in the east and setting with the sunrise the next morning. The Moon appears full to the eye for two to three nights. However, astronomers regard the Moon as Full at a precisely defined instant — when the Moon is exactly 180 degrees opposite the Sun. Since you have this Full Moon power behind you, send healing energy, forgiveness, pink light and loving-kindness to friends, family, colleagues, and strangers. In addition, send peaceful energy to the places in the world experiencing strife, hardship, poverty and war.

December 12, 2019 - Full Cold Moon

In North America, this Moon is referred to as the Full Cold Moon because it coincides with the winter solstice. It is associated with the time in which days grow colder and nights become much longer. The Full Moon will also share the sky with the annual Ursid meteor shower. The Ursids are named after the constellation Ursa Major, where they appear to originate. When it’s cold outside, open your heart and home to friends and family. Reach out to people who might be suffering from the chill of winter, either spiritually or physically

December 12, 2019 Full Cold Moon – A Time to Heal and Relax!

December 12, 2019 - Full Cold Moon

The Long Night Moon gets its name because the Full Moon in December occurs near the Solstice, which has the longest night of the year. This is a time of rest. As the night is long and the days are short it becomes a time of self healing and rejuvenation. As mother Earth has tucked herself in, so should you. It is perfectly fine to allow yourself the time to heal and relax that is necessary for good health. Now is the perfect time for spiritual awareness — time to evaluate your life, and know that you’ll survive the dark times. It is the time to get rid of that excess baggage you’ve been toting around.

December 12, 2019 Full Cold Moon – The Moon Before Yule!

Yule Log

Europeans call the December Full Moon the Moon before Yule. Yule is an old northern European winter festival that is now associated with Christmas. This is a season of adaptation and change. In many magical traditions, and certainly owing to its proximity to Yule and Christmas, this is also a time of sharing one’s blessings with those less fortunate. Many customs created around Yule are identified with Christmas today.

Dried Yule Log

If you decorate your home with a Yule tree, holly or candles, you are following some of these old traditions. A dried Yule log, (usually made from a piece of wood saved from the previous year) is burned in the fire to symbolize the Newborn Sun/Son. Many displayed symbols of Yule are very prominent today. Some displayed are the original Yule Log, or small Yule Log with 3 candles, evergreen boughs or wreaths, holly, mistletoe hung in doorways, gold pillar candles, baskets of clove studded fruit, a simmering pot of wassail (also known as Hot Apple Cider), and bright red poinsettias.

December’s Full Cold Moon – Spiritual Meaning!

December 12, 2019 - Full Cold Moon

This Full Cold Moon of December is happening in the Zodiac sign of Gemini. Gemini is an Air sign and is symbolized by the twins and ruled by Mercury. As this Moon moves through Gemini, regardless of how we normally feel, we may be a little bit more scattered during this transition. Take quiet time for clear thinking. This is a Moon loaded with vibrations of change. It is worth keeping in mind that part of growing as a person requires you to accept that life is constantly changing. Embrace these changes as they will be positive ones. This is a fantastically-beautiful Full Moon. We are tempted to be spellbound by it. But we are also tempted to be wary, as sometimes things are not as they appear to be.

High Karma Quotient

The Full Cold Moon of December is special, as it has a high Karma quotient to it. Creating good Karma is as simple as trying your best to be a good person, and to treat others with kindness. This is also the time of year for wrapping up loose ends, finishing up a project, or turning inwards. Clear communication must be highlighted here in dealing with others. Examine the ways in which you communicate to others and make some positive changes. Put out your best effort and true self into the world, and the Universe will send you experiences and people to match your energy.

December 12, 2019 Full Cold Moon – It’s a Time for Hot Apple Cider!

Hot Cider

Nothing beats a mug of hot apple cider on a cold winter’s day. In these more brisk months, there’s nothing better than wrapping your hands around a hot mug of apple cider. Just the fragrance is enough to lull anyone in from the cold and calm the senses for a while. Apple cider is perfect for gatherings with friends, family dinners, Christmas parties… pretty much anywhere where a large group of people plan on getting together. If you’re the one hosting the party, it makes your house smell like an old school cider house — better than any holiday candle can.


What we do: Grab an orange. Stick some cloves in it. Throw it in your Crock Pot along with a few cinnamon sticks and a gallon of apple cider. Turn it on. Wait four hours. Serve. *Option 1 – Thinly slice or chop up some McIntosh apples including the peel, into small pieces and drop a small bunch of the apple pieces into each cup of hot cider just before serving. This makes a wonderful addition to this recipe. *Option 2 – Add one and one-half cups of bourbon, whiskey or rum when ready to serve. (Adding it too soon will burn out the alcohol.) Also briskly whisk in a pat of butter right before serving. It gives the cider a rich, frothy top and smooths out the flavors. Makes about sixteen 8 oz. Drinks.
