Why The Christmas Full Moon Is Even More Important Than You Thought

Why The Christmas Full Moon Is Even More Important Than You Thought

On December 25, 2015 the lunar show was the first full moon on Christmas in 38 years. We won’t have another full moon on a Christmas Day until 2034.

For anyone under 40, this Christmas's full moon is already pretty exciting (this will be the first time we've had one since 1977), but its greater importance goes far beyond how rare an occurrence it is. As you may know, each month's full moon has a specific significance within Pagan traditions, and the full moon itself, regardless of the date, is a meaningful time of the month. That December's full moon, also known as the Cold Moon or the Long Night Moon, coincides with Christmas Day this year presents us with a singular opportunity for reflection and preparation.

Just as the Winter Solstice brings people together, you may recognize that, during the colder months of the year, you seek comfort among friends and family.

These feelings may be stronger than usual this year, as the maternal and familial influence of the full moon may intensify your desire to be around loved ones for the holidays. Other spiritual effects of the full moon (clarity of mind and heart, heightened psychic awareness, a greater capacity for healing) can be beneficial for your end-of-year reflections, and even help you set intentions for 2016. With this in mind, even your Christmas well-wishes can be imbued with the power of the full moon now.

Christmas is supposed to be a time of giving, charity, and goodwill. The full moon can bring unexpected things about you, to light. If simultaneously observed, the collision of these two events (the holiday and the full moon) will usher in a truly advantageous moment to reevaluate our place in the world and our relationships with those we care about.
