Long Nights Moon - Full Moon Tonight :)
Did any of you happen to see the eclipse early this morning? I'm in New England so it was very difficult to see, but I have been sent pictures of it that were absolutely beautiful. :)))) Thank you to those who shared with me.
Tonight is the night of the Long Nights full moon. It's the last full moon of the calender year. This moon is also known as the Cold Moon or the Big Winter Moon. Native Americans called this moon the Full Cold Moon or the Full Long Nights Moon. I betcha you can guess where this months full moon got it's name from. It's known for the long hard winter and the longest and darkest nights of the year. Even though we are in the darkest time of the year, know that we will be coming back into the light soon. Use tonight to reflect on where you have been and where you want to go in 2012.
The full moon is a time to banish things in your life that you don't want. Release those habits that you don't want to bring forward with you. Open yourself up to healing energy to prepare for the New Moon in a couple weeks. Tonight is also a great night to do protection work or any divination. Envision the light of the full moon cleansing you of any negativity. With the lunar eclipse from this morning the energy is especially wonderful to work with.

Colors: White, red, and black
Gemstones: Obsidian, ruby, serpentine
