Auspicious Moon

There are some very interesting things going on with the Full Moon tonight. I’m going to run through them very quickly and let everyone draw their own conclusions as to how to apply this lore to any working being done.

Simply due to being a full moon we know that it is symbolic of the Mother full in belly. The moon is also associated with the mind, mysteries, the womb of the underworld, secrets, transformation, and the spiritual.

It is the first full moon of the New Year and as such is the Beth Moon according to the Beth-Luis-Fearn Calendar. It is a moon associated with new beginning, birth, initiation, and the starting journeys. Also for some reason my intuition says it is important that the tree of Beth is often called “our Lady in Silver.”

This full moon is occurring during under the sign of Sagittarius, which in very short form is about being free and carefree. It is a fire sign with is associated with the will, energetic, change, and passion. Being a mutable sign, it is very adaptable. Sagittarius is also ruled by the planet Jupiter, which is all about home, hearth, career, wealth, and prosperity.

Depending upon who you ask and which almanac you refer to it is either the Beaver, Mourning, Snow, Dark, or Fog Moon; most commonly the Beaver Moon. Whichever way you chop it though it is about the onset of winter, preparation, and a time of being busy within the home but otherwise resting. The lore behind the Beaver Moon is two-fold. It is the time unto which trapper’s are advised to set their final trap to catch beaver for their fur before winter, and it is also the time in which beaver’s are very busily trying to finish their stockpile and preparation going into winter before hunkering down in their lodges.

The last point of lore that I am going to relate is that it is a lunar eclipse. Lunar eclipses are a threshold/crossroads time associated with major change, transformation, new beginning, and the start of a journey.

Draw whatever conclusions you would like but I personally find this synchronization to be very auspicious.

The Moon was also tightly conjunct Jupiter last night, very much magnifying the effects. Since both were in Gemini, it was and is a very "Airy" moon. The "lady in silver" is interesting as it relates to a vision received in circle last night.
