The November Full Moon, known as the Beaver Moon, will be at its fullest at 11.02am so will look its fullest on Monday night.
Full Moon names date back to Native Americans of North America. There was some variation in the Full Moon names, but in general, the same ones were consistent among regional tribes – those who rely on Full Moon periods to track crops and harvest.
This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. In the 1760s, Captain Jonathan Carver heard this Native American term during his travels.
The brightness of the Full Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are aligned on opposite sides of Earth, and 100% of the Moon’s face is illuminated by the Sun.
It is time to come back down to Earth. Time to settle down. Time to regroup, find your feet and ground yourself back into what’s important to you, what works for you, and what you want in life.
