The last Full Moon is set for Dec. 12, at 12:12 p.m. An event astronomy enthusiasts are encouraged not to miss.
“If you checked your copy of the 2020 Farmers’ Almanac, page 150 (December 2019 calendar page), or our Moon Phase calendar online, you saw that December’s Cold Moon turns 100 percent full on Dec. 12 (12/12) at 12:12 a.m. Eastern Time. That’s a lot of 12s! Should those living in the Eastern Time Zone buy a lottery ticket? Or get married?” said the Farmer’s Almanac on their website.
This month’s Moon goes by many names, including the Full Cold Moon, the Long Night’s Moon, and the Moon Before Yule. But the number 12 can also show some unique meanings as well.
The number 12 is at the very end of the numerology spectrum, and it offers those who see it in their daily life the opportunity to… wrap up a particular life stage and situation before moving forward to bigger and better things. This number is like a curtain call that allows you to get your affairs together so you can benefit from the windfall that the universe is about to bestow on you.
While that’s technically still Dec. 11 in much of the U.S., people in the Eastern Time Zone will be treated to the full Moon on Dec. 12 at 12:12 a.m.
While photographers and stargazers alike will most likely be setting those alarm clocks to take in the moment, one thing for sure is, the number 12 aligning with the 12th month of the year at the 12th hour, there may just be something magical happens for someone somewhere.
