The November Moon has Walks Tall Woman as the Original Clan Mother. She is the Guardian of Leadership and the Keeper of New Paths. This Clan Mother teaches us how to lead by example instead of demanding that others allows follow the leader. We learn that in order to change our life situation we must take our own actions instead of relying on others to do it for us.
Walks Tall Woman gives us the message that it is OK to be proud of our accomplishments through our own self-esteem. She also reminds us that this is different than looking at our successes as being self-important. There is a huge difference in the two. We grow to be happier with ourselves when we hone our skills. Our actions speak much louder than words so, we should be living examples of our beliefs. People then see that we are walking our truth. We learn from this Clan Mother that our reputation comes from our own integrity and not from the opinions of those around us. You might think that sounds odd but it really isn’t. If we walk our truth each day, others form a better respect for us than they would if we let their opinions mold us.
The Clan Mother of the November Moon encourages us to persevere with our goals while keeping a good balance with time to rest built into our daily activities. Her most important message is for us to always Walk The Truth.
