A Cold Moon Is Coming On 29th December

A Cold Moon Is Coming On 29th December

The last full moon of the decade will take place on 29th December - and it means big things for the new year.

Dubbed the Cold Moon due to the icy temperatures this time of year, it's also referred to as the 'Long Night Moon' thanks to December's shorter days and longer nights.

But what does it mean for us? And how will it affect our new year?

Well, astrologer Lisa Stardust has said we should expect "a big emotional ending to 2020".

"The Cold Moon is the Full Moon in Cancer," Lisa tells Tyla.

"It's a time to release sentiments and frustrations from the past year. This luminary is called the Cold Moon because it's the time when the days become shorter and nights longer. The weather begins to drop, as winter begins.

"This will affect our resolutions in the way that we plan. We'll want to dedicate ourselves towards resolutions that will better relationships and friendships."

According to The Farmer's Almanac, the Cold Moon is extra special because it sits just above the horizon for a longer period of time than most full moons.

It's also sometimes known as 'the moon before Yule' due to the fact it often takes place before Christmas, around the time of the winter solstice on 21st December.

The Cold Moon will be the last full moon of the decade, and the 13th full moon of 2020. There are usually 12 full moons each year, but this year we've been graced with 13!

On 29th December, and into the morning of 30th December, the Cold Moon will be visible shortly after sunset.

But if you fancy seeing it at its most spectacular, the best time to catch it is around 3.30am. We've got a feeling it might just be worth setting an alarm for!
