How Will The Cold Moon Affect Me?

This years cold moon is in Gemini, the sign of communication and thinking. This December full moon will bring with it help in renewing love and strengthening relationships. This time is a good time for open conversations and implementing change where needed.

Many people, including myself find that they struggle to sleep on a full moon. I believe it's because the sky is so bright and the connection we have individually to the moon is more intense during a full moon. We all operate from our subconscious whenever we aren't putting in conscious effort which is more often than you would realise, trust me! Operating from your subconscious leaves you prone to being stuck in habits that are stopping you from moving forward in life.

The moon is the mother influence, she guides you when she's full and close. She saves you from your own subconscious behaviours, she wants the best for you. Isn't that comforting?

How Did The Cold Moon Get It's Name?

The Cold Moon gets it's name from simply being in the cold month, it's also known as The Moon Before Yule, The Oak Moon and The Long Night Moon because it's the closest full moon to the Winter Solstice which is the start of longer, darker nights and shorter, colder days.
