The frogs Return Moon is the second moon of Wabun of the East. The Stone for this Moon is placed midway between the Eastern and Southern Stones in the outer Circle of the Medicine Wheel. The mineral totem for this Moon is the Chrysocolla, the plant is the Blue Camas, and the animal is the Beaver. The color is blue and the elemental clan influence is the Turtle clan.
From the Chrysocolla, people in this position learn to balance the Earth and Sky within themselves; from the Blue Camas, to sustain themselves and others; from the Beaver, to make all environments as pleasant as possible. This is the position to explore when you wish to learn about stability, the value of hard work, luck, and your ability to create and maintain an orderly and beautiful environment. The Frogs Return Moon will teach you about perseverance, patience, stability, and practicality. People in this position need to guard against being too stubborn, overindulging, and holding back all their feelings.
Text by Sun Bear and Wabun Wind, Dancing with The Wheel
Beaver I was running over rapids, Beaver,
When you damned up my stream.
You made a still, deep place
For me to work and dream.
You gave me peace and harmony
And built my lodge in beauty.
You taught me patient perseverance,
Made me content in daily duty.
I was churning in white water, Beaver
I was almost sure to drown.
Your sturdy practicality
Has turned my life around.
You set my house in order
With your clever, tranquil ways
And brought me sweet contentment
To help me through my days.
