On Friday, Nov. 23, at 12:39 a.m. EST, a full moon will rise in the sky bringing the last lunar cycle of the fall to a close. As this season and cycle reach an ending, a lot of thoughts and feelings are bound to come forward. To make the most out of this month's lunar experience, and to honor the fall's last full moon, you'll want to consider some meditations for the November full moon. Having some kind of spiritual or psychological prompt can help you to carve out the time and mental space to be contemplative, reflective and proactive in your thoughts — which is super important to do before starting a new lunar cycle and season.
Transitional times can be hugely inspirational or chaotically stressful, depending on how you regard them. If you greet the season and cycle's change after meditating and getting yourself centered, you'll be prepared to take on whatever stresses or obstacles that come your way. If you don't take the time to stop and think, you could find yourself feeling overwhelmed, disoriented, and frustrated with stressors that you're totally capable of overcoming. To ensure that you make the most out of November's full moon, Bustle talked to yogi and healer Eva Giorgi about some super helpful meditation techniques that you can try at home. All it takes is a few minutes of quiet focus, and you can ready yourself for anything. Face the winter season with a clear mind, an open heart, and a balanced step. Here's your meditative guide to a positive and productive winter season as we begin to leave the fall behind.
