This week here on The Spiral Dance, we celebrate the Full Moons of Winter.
All the full moons have names, as you know. But during the Winter, the Dark time of the year the moon has an ever stronger effect on us.
Each of the Full Moons of December, January, February and March have different qualities. So we'll take a look at each moon's quality.
This year's December full moon is on Saturday, the 22nd, the day after Yule! It will be the longest Full Moon of the year, appearing full for three days before and after the time of Full Moons
Also each of the moons have Goddesses associated with them. Specifically there are sabbats which are sacred to certain goddesses. And so, to my mind anyway, the full moons during those months are great for connecting further with those Goddesses.
And I also have a recorded Guided Meditation for you from Bente Hensen. This is called "Luminescent Reflection"
Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include Loreena McKennitt: "Moon Cradle"; Enya: "Shepard Moon"; Lorellei: "Moon Azure"; Llewellyn: "Hunter's Moon"; Kellianna: "Lady Moon" and more.
