During meditation tonight I got in touch with the crone or powerful old woman. In my vision she carried a big stick and walked through the frozen woods vital and alive!
The American Indian names for this moon are:
Moon When the Rivers begin to Freeze-Lakota
Moon of the Brown Leaves-Cheyenne
The Farmers Almanac calls this moon the Beaver Moon. One explanation is that the this is the time the trappers wanted to set their traps for the winter. Also, the beavers build their winters dams now.
Go out into the night and embrace the aliveness of the moon, darkness and stars!
