“Drink in the moon as though you might die of thirst.” ~ Sanober Khan
This Christmas Day, the moon will be full in the constellation of Gemini, just above the star Geminorum, also known as Alhena.
This is a powerfully rare occurrence that has not been seen since December 25, 1977 and which will not return until the year 2034.
This graphic represents the view due east at 7pm GMT on Christmas Day 2015 as seen from the center of the British Isles, about an hour after full darkness has descended.
Welcome to December’s Full Cold Moon, a powerhouse of potential and possibilities!
“As we look at the Moon on such an occasion, it’s worth remembering that the Moon is more than just a celestial neighbor. The geologic history of the Moon and Earth are intimately tied together such that the Earth would be a dramatically different planet without the Moon.” ~ John Keller, of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.
And just as our beautiful planet is symbiotically connected to its only natural satellite, the moon, we, the children of Gaia, are also intimate with the phases of Luna.
Just as Luna governs the tides, which affect the weather, she also affects our emotions—as we are approximately 78 percent water—and so, as our Earth Mother shifts we shift, a swaying continuum that holds us close to the bosom of Nature.
We are indeed children of the Goddess, coming into our fullness this December 25th, for one last time this year.
The Moon and Numerology
The Moon, an expression of the feminine, is associated with the number 2. The number two is, like the fertilized egg splitting, the symbol of life at its most powerful potential. Any year or month adding up to the number 2 comes under the influence of the moon, such as the month on November (11 – 1+1 = 2)
“To determine if you are a moon child, add up the numbers of your full birth date: for example – 2/4/1967 = 29, 2+9 = 11, 1+1 = 2.” ~ Moon Wisdom, Sally Morningstar.
