Hunter's Moon


November dawns with a Hunter's Moon in Taurus. Our clocks have just been turned back, and the moon is full. I've always loved this moon... the transitioning between autumn and the first winter weeks. It brings both briskness and the blanket of coming snows... a shock to the system and a warm place to hibernate, letting our dreams lead the way during the dark months.

Taurus moons have always been productive for me. I like the persistence and stubbornness of the bull, the earthy qualities suit even an air-head Gemini like me. The bull grounds me, which is not an easy thing to do.

Fitting, I suppose, that I begin National Novel Writer's Month with this moon, since it really lends itself to organization, gathering resources, tracking plans, and basically getting one's poop in a pile. I've always allowed lunar positions to be my guide at times like this... and probably never would have made a list or organized a desk in my life without that nudge from the celestial lady. I never follow the NaNoWriMo rules strictly, but like to use it as an inspiration and motivator.

So this week I kick off a month of getting it together, putting it where it needs to go, and having all my ducks in a row for the coming season of sleep and dreams.
