Full Moon Eclipse November 28th, 2012
November’s full moon arrives on the 28th at 9:47 a.m., EST - two days after Mercury turns direct. Hallelujah! The November full moon, or the second full moon after the Fall Equinox, is called the Full Beaver Moon (No snickering from the kids in the back, please). Historically, this was the time of year Native Americans set their traps for beaver, who become very active in the late fall. November’s full moon is sometimes called the Frost Moon, as well.
After all the dire warnings we’ve had during the past few full moon cycles, it’s going to be nice to have a full moon that is relatively uncomplicated and just darn right fun. Our full moon this month is in six degrees Gemini, in opposition to a Sagittarian sun. This means that while Gemini asks you to use logic and reason to solve a problem, Sagittarius nudges you in the ribs and says, “Come on. Think outside the box.”
The Gemini moon is about communications and attitude. We also have a lunar eclipse occurring at the same time and remember, eclipses have the power of 10 full moons. You can expect to receive extra power kick to the already boosted organizing and accomplishing drive we have from Mars visiting Capricorn.
Sparkling conversation and witty remarks are the hallmarks of this full moon cycle. Consider hosting an afterwork soirée with good wine and friends who always have something thought-provoking to say. You might also round up your friends and drop by your favorite bistro. The 28th is definitely an evening for good food and good cheer. Think of it as a cosmic kickoff to the holiday season.
In terms of tarot, the number for the 28th is 8 (11 + 28 + 2012 = 8).
Major Arcana # 8 = Strength: compassion, coping, the ability to act
powerfully, yet calmly
8 of Wands = movement, a message or proposal, timing
8 of Cups = leaving a situation or relationship that is completed
and going to something better
8 of Swords = self-imposed restraint, or limitations
8 of Pentacles = task mastery, development of work skills and discipline for
the sake of the job itself, immersion in work
Enjoy our Gemini moon. She heralds some interesting high points for the December holiday season.
