Try to steal a kiss under the mistletoe during December's full moon!
A Moon for Divination
The night of the Cold Moon is a good time for divination. Reading the Tarot cards, casting the Runes or any type of divination is favorable on this night. An old and very simple method of Cold Moon divination is to toss a shoe over your left shoulder. If the shoe lands upright, the predication is favorable for the coming year.
A Night for A Romantic Kiss Under the Mistletoe
Kissing under the mistletoe is a tradition that was handed down to us from the Druids. Even though the tradition has changed a lot over the years, it still remains today. The mistletoe was very scared to the ancient Druids who would gather it from the high branches of the Oak Trees with golden sickles. Mistletoe has been known to possess mystical powers which bring good luck to the household and wards off evil.
Mistletoe’s association with romance dates back to ancient Norse mythology. By the 18th century, stealing a kiss beneath the mistletoe became a common practice in Britain and the tradition spread from there. It’s often considered bad luck to refuse a kiss beneath the mistletoe. After each kiss, the couple is supposed to pluck one of the berries from the mistletoe. Once all the berries are gone, it no longer has the power to command kisses.
Whether you choose to cut your mistletoe or buy a few sprigs at your local garden center, I hope someone special is waiting for you in the doorway where it is hung.

This is a magical time of the year. A time to spend with family and friends, a time for food and festivities, song and merriment. Enjoy the Cold Moon and the winter energies and holiday traditions that come along with it!
