Moon Curious | Full Moon, The Beaver Moon
The first full moon of November known as the Beaver Moon. This moon you should get in touch with your senses and ground in nature.
Full moons happen once a month when the sun’s rays fully illuminate the surface of the moon. The moon has no light of its own, and when the moon is shining at its brightest and fullest, we’re receiving maximum light, energy & vitality as the sun’s rays bounce off of the lunar surface.
As the chill air of late fog descends, animals begin to prepare their dens for the deep freeze of winter.
In Early America beavers were seen along the banks of rivers and streams, collecting wood to shore up their lodges and dams before the winter sets in. This was also the time Native American tribes and later European settlers set beaver traps to ensure a supply of warm furs for winter. People also refer the moon as a Scratching Moon. The name evokes an image of animals scratching at the fallen leaves, foraging for fallen nuts or remaining shoots of green foliage.
This time of year, especially after Thanksgiving, can have all of us feeling similar to the beaver, lethargic, stuffed, and ready for a long, long winter’s sleep.
