November’s Full Moon
Beaver Moon

November 30 at 1:29 am PST/ 2:29 am MST/ 4:29 am EST

“November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.”

Author: Elizabeth Coatsworth (May 31, 1893 – August 31, 1986) or Clyde Watson

After Samhain we enter the dark period where the seasons seem to slow down. It was during this time that the ancient people readied themselves for the coming winter. The last harvest was over and they prepared their final provisions and made their homes as winter-proof as possible.

. The Farmers Almanac says this was the last time to set beaver traps before the ponds froze over, however, the beavers themselves were making ready for the winter just as the people were!) Other names for this months moon are: Mourning Moon. White Moon (China), Trading Moon (Cherokee), Sassafras Moon (Choctaw), Moon When Horns Are Broken Off (Dakota), Dark Moon (Celtic), Snow Moon (Medieval English), Tree Moon (Neo-Pagan), Fog Moon, Frosty Moon, Full Frost Moon, Hunter’s Moon.

November’s moon also honors dark goddesses like Kali, Hecate, and Bast. Use purple candles for your Full Moon observance and burn Full Moon Incense of anise, lavender and rosemary or single blends of patchouli or mugwort. This is also a good time to cleanse and charge your moonstones, just place them on a windowsill during the night of the full moon.

It is also a time of mourning as we join the Goddess in remembering her love who has gone on to the Otherworld. But is also a time when we must also remember that all periods of mourning DO come to an end. The Crone is now the womb and will become the Mother in about six weeks time. While the “outer growth” is slowing down, we find it a good time to work on inner growth. While the Earth Mother rests it is a good time for tying up the loose ends in our lives. Let go of what no longer serves us and say farewell to bad relationships and habits. It is also a time of contemplation when we can strengthen our personal connection to the Divine Source.

To celebrate this full moon try wearing colors in grays or blues and adorn yourself with lapis, turquoise, moonstone or topaz.

The Irish Goddess Dana helps us to generate abundance through gratitude. She says, “While you wait for these blessings to arrive fill your heart with feelings of abundance.

1127: During the past month we have been watching our thoughts and setting positive intentions. Through these actions we have opened and strengthened our communication with the Universe and empowered our overall manifestation process. We have also been working with faith and the combination of positive thought and faith has guided us on our path as it clears our energy and replaces stress with peace. This is one of those days where the Universe is letting us know that we are on the right path and doing a great job. The work we are doing now will help pave the way when we enter December. If you have been slacking it’s a good time to tie up any loose ends so that you can move forward in the new cycle.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jeremiel is in charge of life reviews and changes. He can help you see everything that you have accomplished recently as well as the areas that need attention and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. He teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. He removes our fear of change and what the future holds and replaces them with a sense of expectant excitement.

The Ascended Master Paramahansa Yogananda teaches us that during times of stress or loss of focus peace can be found through meditation. Remember that meditation can be as simple as taking several deep breaths and centering yourself. Use this as your personal reset button.

The Egyptian goddess Bastet (Bast) is not only associated with cats both large and small she is also a goddess of protection and of things that bring pleasure to the senses. In her role as protector she tells us “Never be afraid to stand up for yourself. Remember the importance of setting boundaries. This helps you to take control of your life”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Blue Lace Agate helps us to create and maintain balance during times of stress. It helps us to find our voice when indecision is a factor, allowing us to freely express thoughts and feelings in a peaceful manner.

Carnelian is used for motivation and increased creativity. It teaches us to trust in ourselves and helps us find creative solutions to current issues. It boosts self esteem and invites us to embrace our personal power while promoting positive life choices which enhance our ability to draw new forms of prosperity and abundance.

Larimar helps to remove self-imposed barriers that may be keeping us from accepting our personal power and stops self-sabotaging behavior by bringing out the best in us. It helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted. This sky blue stone also helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Daily Good: Remembering Our Way Forward

What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez –

Remembering Our Way Forward

“Perspective has carried me through a year that has been marked by the pandemics of Covid-19 and racism, political strife, and an escalating climate crisis. Ive held close as gently as possible reliable truisms: Change is the only constant. Life tends toward life. I affirm: I’m not alone. In the end, death comes to us all I have only to decide how to live life now. Showing up for myself, for others, and for what I care about with all my human imperfectness makes me more alive. I ask myself: What is the opportunity? What remains true?” More in this piece from Gratefulness.org. { read more }

EarthSky News: Full moon, faint eclipse, November 29-30

In North America, we often call the November full moon the Beaver Moon or Frosty Moon. In the Southern Hemisphere, where it’s the opposite time of year, the November full moon is a fixture of the spring season rather than of autumn. But no matter where you live worldwide, this November 2020 full moon shines directly in front of the constellation Taurus the Bull, and presents the third and final full moon of this Northern Hemisphere autumn or Southern Hemisphere spring.

Inner Journey: FOLLOW YOUR OWN PATH

“Life is complex. Each one of us must make his own path through life. There are no self-help manuals, no formulas, no easy answers. The right road for one is the wrong road for another … The journey of life is not paved in blacktop; it is not brightly lit, and it has no road signs. It is a rocky path through the wilderness.”
— M. Scott Peck

We each have our own pathways to develop both personally and spiritually. They are based on our character and past experiences. No one else can identify our paths for us. Tune in to your inner guidance system and follow its direction.

“What every man needs, regardless of his job or the kind of work he is doing, is a vision of what his place is and may be. He needs an objective and a purpose. He needs a feeling and a belief that he has some worthwhile thing to do. What this is no one can tell him. It must be his own creation.”
— Joseph M. Dodge

1126:The Universe and its helpers assist us in many ways. One of which is to ensure that our needs are being met. While sometimes we may have our doubts, it’s not the case, but in all reality it is. Are you confused? Let me explain. In today’s society, people tend to want more than what they really need to live. If you look around you can probably find a surplus of THINGS that you could do without. (I know I can) When the angels tell us that they are making sure our needs are met they are speaking of necessities, money to pay our bills, food, shelter, clothing, etc. If we aspire to have more then we need to do our part to make it happen. Working with the Universe is a partnership and today we are reminded that our needs are truly being met both for ourselves and our loved ones. Remember if you need help, ask and get that request out into the universe. Take a moment to offer gratitude for life and for what you have!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raziel gently guides us through the manifestation process so that we are more adept at creating what we need and what we want. Remember that NEED and WANT are two separate things and by concentrating on need first all else will fall into place.

The Ascended Master Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”.By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow. He also reminds us of the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow and can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well.

The Roman Goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate abundance in it’s many forms as well as attract them. She tells us, ” Your faith in the bounty of the universe serves you well. Cast aside your worry and embrace the richness of your life because you have so much to grateful for.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Tree Agate (Dendritic) to strengthen your connection to the plant kingdom and help you to enjoy each moment. It is also known as the stone of plentitude and promotes abundance while showing us the “wealth” we already have.

Aventurine teaches us how to give and receive gracefully. Both are necessary for healthy relationships with self and others and it allows the Universe to care for you. Aventurine also helps to dispel the anger and irritation that sometimes arise when we are stuck in the “what I lack” mind loop.

Larimar helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted. This sky blue stone also helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.

You’re looking opposite the sunset direction, roughly 30 to 60 minutes after sunset. If you look too soon, your sky will be too bright, but if you look too late, your sky will be too dark.

Inner Journey: WHAT ARE YOU FEELING?

“We know too much and feel too little. At least, we feel too little of those creative emotions from which a good life springs.”
— Bertrand Russell

Many of the qualities that bring fulfilment in life are feelings, like love, joy, freedom and gratitude.

In our overly rational world, we tend to think about how we feel, which, of course, is not feeling at all — it’s thinking.

Honour your feelings and be willing to experience them. They give us valuable feedback about what is and what is not working in our lives. They are the signposts to meaningful inner work.

“With just a little education and practice on how to manage your emotions, you can move into a new experience of life so rewarding that you will be motivated to keep on managing your emotional nature in order to sustainit. The payoff is delicious in terms of improved quality of life.”
— Doc Childre

Daily Tarot: Justice

You might prefer to do most things on your own today, but that may not be permitted. Find ways to involve others and enlist help, or simply let them do their part. Wait until tonight to decompress in private. It’s important to keep an even temper and not let others manipulate you emotionally. Your feelings are being strongly projected, so treat others with tact and avoid anger.

1125: Today is about accepting change with an optimistic mindset. The truth is that change happens (all the time) and it plays an important role in our overall growth. Today, the Universe is asking us to take some time to review the changes that have occurred in the last few months. Ask yourself, “How did I or How am I handling them?” Am I fighting it or am I rolling with it? Remember that fighting change ties up your energy and slows the manifestation process. Set aside or let go of any fear or lingering doubts and allow the changes to unfold naturally. This important work will help us in the new cycle that starts in December. Initiate some occasional self-checks to view your progress and make sure you are where YOU want to be. Your potential is unlimited and the only restrictions are the ones that you place on yourself!

Daily Good: Are You a Highly Sensitive Person?

Being highly sensitive does not at all rule out being, in your own way, a tenacious survivor.

Elaine N. Aron –

Are You a Highly Sensitive Person?

“Dr. Elaine Aron is a clinical depth psychologist and the author of the seminal 1997 book The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You. With Sounds True, she has published The Highly Sensitive Person’s Complete Learning Program: Essential Insights and Tools for Navigating Your Work, Relationships, and Life. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Tami Simon speaks with Dr. Aron about what it means to be a highly sensitive person and recent research into the phenomenon. They consider whether the trait is genetic or adaptive, as well as the various ways sensitive behaviors manifest in day-to-day life. They also discuss how best to approach romantic relationships with highly sensitive people and the possible social advantages of sensitivity. Finally, Dr. Aron shares the connection between extreme sensitivity and intuition, as well as attitudes necessary for embracing the entirety of your unique, sensitive self.” { read more }

Industry

“Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”

-Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)

Work worth doing hardly seems like work at all – it’s a pleasure! Doing good work makes us feel alive. It’s wonderful to be able to contribute, to be able to make an impact, make a difference. Any work you love doing, any work that helps people, or makes the world a better place in any way – that is work worth doing.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

It’s possible that a trust has been violated or a relationship may be hurt by a broken promise, or you sense that this might happen soon. Until you know for sure who and what might be involved, take no action, although the discreet question asked of a trustworthy person might be all right, though still risky. Make no accusations but respect your own self-interest
