Happy Full Christmas Moon


Full Christmas Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Christmas Moon (Native American) at 3* Cancer will culminate, December 25, 2015 3:11PdT/6:11pm EdT (Farmers Almanac).

This Cancer Full Moon is celebrated this year on the Holiday Christmas. There will not be another full moon on Christmas until 2034. The meaning of this moon is all about expressing yourself in the best possible way. Making an effort to be sincere. There are many times we are asked to awaken to our lives. And how appropriate for this full moon to be on a major world holiday where we are thrown together with family, friends and strangers. The Moon is your personal spotlight and shines down to help create good faith. Some of us resist and don’t want to participate. But this year the coast is clear. That’s if we step into our better selves and create some good karma. I don’t think spilling our guts might be the answer on a festive full moon. But the people who are meaningful for you, make sure to speak up and share a moment. Life is comprised of many such opportunities and it’s important to say what we mean and mean what we say. As there is an old adage and truth, we won’t pass this way again.

If we all started to appreciate the experiences in our lives, instead of being bored or too self-absorbed, we might release our personal suffering. Just remember to ask questions. Queries take the pressure from you having to answer. Get those conversations going and memories made. In the olden days the old folks could be square, well…”don’t be square”. The subject isn’t important, be honorable or listen on a deeper level. Quelling the loneliness of another or sharing a sentiment. Making others happy leads to our own happiness. And if we don’t have anyone around on the holiday, make yourself your own best company. Cook, read a book or watch movies, just be at your best. And if you’re in the dumps over losing loved ones, they want your happiness, rest assured they would revel in your new memories. We have to learn to live, every moment counts. And this Full Moon reminds us: Love our lives, love the people in our lives. Grant yourself permission to do the best you can…in any situation. Greeting others and letting ourselves be noticed as part of the memory.
