This full moon is known as the Full Beaver Moon, and it occurs in the sign of Gemini. According to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta, during this full moon, you'll be focused on yourself while also giving others freedom to be themselves. This lunar cycle brings about feelings of self-importance and vanity. You may even feel like you can do anything you set your mind to.
The beaver moon affects those born between January 4 and February 5. It is believed that if you see your crescent moon when you look up at the sky next to or instead of a full moon, you will have good luck with love affairs. Beavers are associated with peace, tranquility, and cooperation; therefore, this moon is said to bring about calm emotions after a stormy start to the month. The beaver is also associated with craftiness and ingenuity, which is why this moon is considered good fortune for artists and architects.
The beaver moon is also called the Full Cold Moon because there will be frost in certain parts of the country. This frost is caused by clouds moving in from the south and east, which creates cooler air. The beaver is associated with water, so this moon indicates that money coming from sources other than work will help you pay for personal endeavors.
Finally, the beaver moon is used by some farmers to help them with their crops.
SIGN OF THE MOON The moon is the soul that gives you your individuality. The driving force behind your emotional reactions is the subconscious half of yourself that you generally keep buried. Your moon sign assists you in feeling pleasure and suffering, love and sadness, and provides insight into how you nourish and heal yourself. It can also reveal problems you may have had with self-control and emotions in general.
The moon is the ruler of your psyche, the part of you that thinks and feels. It influences all aspects of your personality, including your moods, desires, passions, fears, strengths, and weaknesses. The moon is responsible for giving life to new things, such as ideas or feelings. It also causes these things to die down again after they've been released. For example, when you feel angry, this emotion comes from deep within you, where it was born months or years ago. This anger has nothing to do with someone or something specific who'd take it out on you if you let it. Rather, it's an overall feeling that flows through you like a river, changing direction as it goes.
Like any other part of your body, your psyche needs sleep. If it doesn't get proper rest, its ability to function properly is impaired. When the moon is in one of its phases that discourage sleep, such as when it's full or dark outside, it becomes difficult for your mind to quiet itself and release stress.
A New Moon Ritual to Assist You in Achieving Your Goals If you've ever heard the expression "set your full moon intentions," you've probably wondered what it meant. The Full Moon is a time for making intentions and purging ourselves of unpleasant ideas, feelings, and emotions that no longer serve us. It's also a good time to focus on growing aspects of our lives that need attention.
Here's how it works: Each month there is a new moon. During a new moon, it is believed that the forces of darkness outnumber the forces of light. At a minimum, there is balance between dark and light energies. For this reason, some people choose to call the new moon a "dark moon."
Intention setting is a process where we identify goals we'd like to achieve, make plans to accomplish those goals, and add energy to them by thinking about them daily. Intention setting for a full moon ritual should be done at least two weeks before the new moon. This gives us time to think about what we want to create or destroy, attract into our lives, and so forth. Anything that comes to mind regarding growth or change can be included in our intention setting exercise.
The next step is to write down our intentions. Have a pen and paper ready. Some people prefer writing their intentions down, while others find speaking them out loud helps them come true.
