Freeze Up Moon
“Life is a circle, from birth to death to rebirth. Humans, like the seasons, pass through many phases during their lives. The moon stones of the Medicine Wheel give us a way of understanding and celebrating these changes. The moon during which you were born determines your starting point on the wheel.”
If you were born between October 24th and November 21st, then you share a special bond with the Snake, the Spirit Animal Guide of the Freeze Up Moon.
Enjoy yourself while you make new discoveries and understand some things you have been confused about. Remember to keep an open mind and soul to allow your energies to flow.
Interestingly, most Shamans are born under this moon. A Shaman is a medicine man that heals with spiritual energies.
Born under the Snake Moon, you have the power to take "poison" and transform it into something harmless, even beneficial. This means you are capable of taking a bad situation and making it better.
Have you had a time when you were hurt deeply by someone you cared about? It may seem you cannot get over the hurt. The Snake Spirit can help you forgive the person and still remember the valuable lessons you learned from the experience. The Snake will also help you release your pain from the past, as if you are shedding your skin.
With this, you will feel rejuvenated and ready to accept happiness. The companions you can trust the most are those of the Strong Sun Moon (June 21 – July 22) and the Big Winds Moon (Feb 19 – Mar 20).
With help from your Guardians, you can become like the Shaman in many ways. Consider studying Shamanism, then practice what you learn. While it may be a hard journey, it will make you a better person. Try Tuesdays between five o’clock and seven o’clock, morning or afternoon, when your energies are much stronger. It will give you the inspiration to proceed forward.
As you 'shed' your old skin, use the Freeze Up Moon's crystal, Malachite, to enhance your rejuvenation.
This stone is used for cleaning deep in your soul to reach your inner feelings and thoughts. Remember, while using malachite, it reflects your emotions, so the mood you feel is what will be displayed to others.
While using this stone on your medicine wheel it will encourage change and help you break unwanted ties and patterns as well as alleviating fear.
When the time comes to move to the next moon, you will be ready with a fresh outlook.
