Full Moon for December 2019 Arrives on 12/12 at 12:12 – What Does It Mean?

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% full on December 12th (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?

The Number 12 in Numerology

According to numerology, the number 12 has some interesting meanings, and symbolizes completion. According to NumerolgySecrets.net:

“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 certain 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.”

In Chinese numerology, 12 represents the harmony of the yin and yang: The number 1 is a yang number, ruled by the Sun and symbolizes independence and individualism. The number 2 is a yin number ruled by the Moon and represents symmetry and balance. Together they equal harmony. Which is why many couples choose to marry on dates with 12s in them.

For math nerds, the number 12 is considered a sublime number, one “that has a perfect number of divisors, and the sum of its divisors is also a perfect number.”

Other References to 12 

The number 12 is significant in these 12 ways:

1. The “Twelve Days of Christmas,” start on December 25 and runs through January 5th.

2. Twelve is associated with the heavens—12 months and 12 zodiac signs.

3. It’s a number widely used in the Bible—the number of apostles, the Tribes of Israel, etc.; In the book of Revelation, there are 12 gates and 12 angels.

4. The number of hours on a clock face is 12.

5. Twelve is the number of members on a jury.

6. There are 12 stages of life in Buddhism.

7. The Ancient Greeks worshipped 12 major gods of Olympus.

8. Eggs come in packs of 12.

9. The average human has 12 ribs.

1o. The number of inches in a foot is 12.

11. There were 12 Knights of King Arthur’s Round Table.

12. We go through 12 grades in school.

And don’t forget: after the full Moon on the 12th, the next day is Friday the 13th!

Very good clarification about the significance of numbers 12.
I enjoyed to know the things that connected to life experiences.
It does saying to me on how to conduct myself with diligence due to the pros and cons of Nature process of transmutation.
Therefore, I want to be in harmony with the movement of the planets since I am a living on Earth! I have to know how to make a difference when comes to understanding what it takes to functioning in a level of development. For me the influences of the Star has been obvious to me that it does affect our intelligence in a way of making the right decisions.
Thank you,
MR/S

Diane – In fact you have those reversed. The full moon is on the 12th and the new moon on the 26th. The Farmer’s Almanac is a great wealth of information. It hasn’t steered me wrong yet. Thank you for your comment. It has allowed me to use my verification skills.

It means nothing…This is a happenstance due to the current system we use. Were we still using the Jullian calendar, it would not be at 12:12 nor would it be on the 12th. This isn’t the universe speaking…its just a random thing that appears due to choices several hundred years ago. Nothing biblical, celestial, or spiritual about it

Proof is on the pudding, just look to the sky. If it’s just shy on the left, it’s a waxing moon. Look today before the 12th.
Good luck

Confused, because the calendar they link to says the full moon is tonight:

https://www.farmersalmanac.com/calendar/moon-phases/

But on a different page they say 12/12? Which is it?

12 has always followed me long before I was interested in numerology. My parents, all of my 4 children’s and my spouses birthdays add up to 12. Any address I have ever lived in added up to 12. One particular combination is on important papers of mine more than once. My father was born on 12/11 and left this plane on 12/12. I on the other hand add up to 8.

How can people be so ignorant. This is NOT the last full moon of the decade. WE STILL HAVE ONE MORE YEAR IN THIS DECADE. Why do people believe what they see on the internet. There are 10 years in a decade not 9. The new decade does not start until the end of the 10th year, how stupid can you be. The day you are born you are not 1 year old, you are not 1 year old until 365 days later. You do not call yourself 10 years old after your 9th birthday. You have not lived 10 years until you 11th birthday… I do not know how to make stupid people not stupid but I have to try.

Thank you for this fun & informative article! I do, however feel sorry for the people who think that there is nothing of value in numerology&astrology, & no “meaning” in repeating numbers. If you study both, you see that they are languages that are ancient & right on point!
