“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.”~Tahereh Mafi
There’s nothing like a beautiful, full orb lighting up an otherwise dark fall night. The slight nip in the air and time of year makes it feel a little more magical than usual.
November Beaver/Frost Moon
November’s full Moon was called the Beaver Moon by both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes because this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to make sure there was ample supply of warm winter furs. The November full Moon was also called the Full Frost Moon by other Native American people.
Some are saying this month’s Full Moon is a Supermoon (not an astronomical term) however the Farmers Almanac is saying the moon’s distance is not quite close enough to the earth to truly be called a Supermoon. That said, the energy certainly FEELS like we’re under the influence of a full on Supermoon. (FYI the next Full Supermoon is December 3rd, 2017)
Although there is a chill in the air, the energy from this moon is warm as it illuminates a lot more than just a path in the woods. Spiritually speaking, the full moon shines a light on, and intensifies, those energies we’ve been working on healing.
Love, Rebirth, Higher Consciousness
This Full Moon is in the sign of Taurus and will grace all of us with love and abundance. Couple that with November being 11th month of the year and we’ve hit the spiritual jackpot. In numerology 11 is a sacred number and represents divinity, rebirth and higher consciousness. 11 also happens to be the number associated with Angels. These abundant and supportive energies will be with us through the entire month so pay attention to any and all signs that come your way.
The Moon will also illuminate and magnify any self-imposed blocks. These include self-sabotaging thoughts, patterns and doubts, that we have carried. It is not just that the Moon lights up these blocks. We are being called to release those blocks to make space for love and abundance. In the next few days, and for the rest of the month for that matter, notice any self-sabotaging thoughts that come to light and effortlessly release them. Get out of your own way and let the Universe, Angels and Guides support your ideas and things you want to create.
Full Moon Intentions
If you’ve ever wanted to set Full Moon intentions, say the following words out loud then take time to reflect and meditate on them. Feel free to add your own as it is YOUR journey. These are just some suggestions.
- I accept and love myself the way I am
- I am (say your name) and my circumstances do not define me
- My intention is to bring in joy and enthusiasm
- I open myself to the abundance of the Universe
- I welcome any and all help from my Angels and Guides
- I allow the beauty and illumination of the full moon to fill my heart, mind and soul with grace, love and laughter
To really enhance your Full Moon intention take a few moments every day for the rest of the month to write down 10 things (per day) you are thankful for AND at least 3 things (per day) you will take action on as you receive help in the form of images, epiphanies, or signs. Remember, the Universe has your back and this Full Moon is energized and filled with abundance. Soak it up but don’t forget to take a few doable steps to move you forward.
Most important, take time to marvel at the mysteries of the Moon as it embodies the rhythm of time. The phases of the moon symbolize immortality and eternity, enlightenment or the shadow self. She serves as a reminder that the subtleties of subdued light are powerful and beautiful all at the same time.
No matter if it’s a Supermoon or ‘almost’ Supermoon, it never fails to take my breath away when I look up to see the wonder that graces our sky every month. I’m reminded that there are cycles that ebb and flow like the tides and that we are merely a speck in a vast Universe. Happy Full Moon!~Shine Your Light Debbie
