The full moon in December is the Long-Nights moon, which makes sense seeing as it falls around the winter solstice. This year, the full Long-Nights moon falls on the solstice. But that’s not all – this year, there is also a full eclipse – however we’re in the middle of a snow storm here. It is at this time that we truly notice how long the nights have become. This is a time for introspection; a time to face the darkness that surrounds us. This is the time to go into the darkness to learn from our shadow-selves. Rest, recuperate, take care of yourself – this is the time of the Dark Mother.
