DECEMBER LONG NIGHTS FULL MOON – SUPERMOON

The December full moon is called the Long Night’s Full Moon because midwinter nights are at their longest and darkest and the full moon is seen above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full moon has a high trajectory across the sky because at this time the sun is low in the sky.
December full moon is also known as the Full Moon before Yule, thus I have illustrated this moon with a huge bonfire on a Yule log. And this moon is also known as the Full Cold Moon, too.
On Sunday, December 3, 2017, this full moon is also the year’s one and only full supermoon. This December moon comes close enough to Earth (222,443 miles or 357,987 km) to enjoy supermoon status. This makes the full moon look extra close and extra bright.

SUNSET LIGHT – WE LINGER NOT WANTING TO LET IT GO

ONCE IN AWHILE SUNSETS ARE SO GLORIOUS THAT THE LIGHT SEEMS TO FILL OUR HEARTS & SOULS.  We linger at the beach watching the golden become amber then purple, then pink.  And still we stay wanting this light to fill our heart, our minds, penetrate every cell in our bodies to heal us, to bring us joy & to carry with us always.  I carry this beauty in my heart.  

FULL MOON NOVEMBER – BEAVER MOON!

WINTER IS COMING!  THE FULL MOON IN NOVEMBER IS CALLED THE BEAVER MOON!  Beavers are hard at work preparing for the coming winter.  Native Americans set beaver traps at this time before the winter freeze so that they would have winter furs to keep them warm.  This November full moon is also called the FROSTY MOON.
