Wow, that last full moon of the year was HUGE right? Full moons are indeed a time of completion and illumination.
My BIG illumination was that this year, I’ve become much more in tune with our cyclical nature. Just as the moon goes through its phases, so do we. Reminds me of the song by The Byrds, Turn! Turn! Turn!
To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep
The Mayans understood this so well.
They knew when to plant and when to harvest, when to give back and when to openly and unashamedly receive. I have loved learning and studying this knowledge and so many people have been telling me they are interested in knowing more, too. Some of my favorite questions are:
How accurate is the Mayan calendar?
Is Mayan astrology even a thing?
How many days did the Maya calendar have?
What is the 260 day count (Chol Q’ij), the 365 day count (Macewal Q’ij)?
How about the 52 year count and The Long count ?
Did the ancient Maya predict that the world would end on December 21, 2012?
What is the significance of the Number 13 to the Maya? I thought it was an UNLUCKY number (Friday the 13th?)?
What is Ceremonial Cacao? Is it the same as Nestlé Hot Chocolate?
I am happy to share what I know in the coming days. Is there anything else you’d like me to cover? Please let me know.
Very soon it will be Solstice time, and you and I will be dreaming-in magical things for 2023 with a cup of real Cacao in hand. Until then here are some lovely full moon dates for your 2023 diary:
