Freezing Moon nourishes our spiritual and physical wellbeing so we can endure! Order today!

Freezing Moon reminds us to prepare for the spiritual path that lies ahead during this season of fasting. It’s the eleventh teaching from Grandmother Moon in Anishinaabe tradition that views the moon as a living relation who makes 13 appearances throughout the year to watch over Mother Earth’s children and light their paths with her gentle wisdom. In November, the Star Nation is closest to Earth, and all the creature beings ready themselves for the lean winter ahead. People gather around the elders to learn the sacred songs and teachings that will sustain them. Freezing Moon is an important time of community and sharing that strengthens our connection to each other and to Creation, and nourishes our spiritual and physical wellbeing so we can endure.

Design:

Algonquin artist Frank Polson creates a captivating image of a full moon behind a leafless tree. A human figure stands to the left, arms outstretched, holding a drumstick and drum to the Star Nation. The drum doubles as a medicine wheel to represent the sacred teachings that are being expressed through song. The vibrantly coloured shapes within the figure are a signature design element in Anishinaabe art and represent the universal life force that animates all things.

Did you know…
  • The Anishinaabe were astute stargazers. They used the sky to foretell seasonal changes, and plan their activities to prepare for, or benefit from, changes in the environment. This sacred knowledge was reserved strictly for healers and spiritual leaders known as Midewiwin, and is excluded from Indigenous curricula at modern colleges and universities.
  • Many Anishinaabe ceremonies and traditions reflect the four cardinal directions, as well as the movement of stars from east to west. The eastern sky (waabanong) is believed to bring new life and knowledge, while the western sky (ningaabii’anong) is the direction spirits travel when they leave Earth.
  • The medicine wheel is an important symbol with teachings about the circle of life. It’s divided into red, yellow, black and white to illustrate different stages or themes that usually focus on the number four—four life phases, four seasons, four directions, four human races, etc. Variations exist, with more than 100 traditional teachings being represented.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
