Full Moon November 17 2013

full moon nov.The moon becomes full at 10:16am on Nov. 17.  Here in Louisville CO. the wind is whipping clouds over the face of the moon and leaves are swirling in the darkness. It feels very alive!

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!
