November 12, 2019 – Full Moon – Beaver Moon- A Full Moon and a “lunar effect” can mean various things to various people. Full Moons amplify our emotions and it is not uncommon to feel a heightened sense of energy, both positive and negative, during this time. The influence of a Full Moon can empower you to step out of your comfort zone and embrace bold changes in your life or step back and reflect on personal issues close to your heart. Here are a few of the names associated with the Full Moon of November.
Beaver Moon – A Time of Gratitude
The Full Moon for November is named after beavers because this is the time they become particularly active building their winter dams in preparation for the cold season. The beaver is mainly nocturnal, so they keep working under the light of the Full Moon. It is the time when hunters set beaver traps before the swamps freeze to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Beavers make dams of wood and mud. In the middle, they build dome-shaped homes called lodges with underwater entrances. Beavers continue to grow throughout their lives, and so do their teeth. They constantly gnaw on wood, but because the enamel in a beaver’s incisors contains iron, their front teeth never wear down. This month of November, the Full Beaver Moon brings us the message that we are to prepare for the cold winter and not to be caught without spiritual fortification. It is a time to nurture yourself and do things that bring warmth and comfort to your soul. It is an emotional time–a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships. Make sure you take time to thank The Creator, the angels, your guides, and ancestors for all of their help bringing you through this year and to be there to help and guide you in the new year.
Frosty Moon Brings the Chill of Winter – November 12, 2019 – Full Moon – Beaver Moon
The silvery lunar glow of this Full Moon looks especially cold at this time of year, as the warmth of early autumn begins to give way to the chill of winter. It’s easy to envision the Moon’s power in these and many other cultures on long, chilly nights, when the Full Moon of November casts its “frosty” light on the landscape — all night long. The Frosty Moon comes in autumn. The Summer has gone, the nights are frosty and the days are cool. The leaves are falling from the trees and the snow is on its way. The Full Moon of November is large in the sky, and is often called the Frosty Moon. The “spiritual winter” seeks to give us rest, let things that need to die do so, and offers the hope of new growth. If we slow down and let it do its job, then winter becomes something that we can treasure and not just make it through. Winter time is a season when the old is washed away and shortly after, renewal begins. It is a beautiful time of year when we think about it from that perspective.
White Moon and Chinese Goddess Chang-e — Personal Growth
Chinese mythology claims that Ch’ang-O also called Chang’e is the Chinese Goddess of the Full White Moon. She does not personify the Moon like other Moon goddesses. She lives on the Moon and is called the “Woman on the Moon.” On this day she inspires devotion in all relationships and sends energy for growth and manifestation in all life areas. This is a day for women to ask the Moon goddess Ch’ang-O to bless them with good fortune for the coming year. Ch’ang-O is associated with courage, power and fertility. You can call upon her for bravery and to break free of the ties that bind. Ask her for help with personal growth, manifestation, to believe in oneself, and a fresh start.
Dark Moon and Our Inner Voice – November 12, 2019 – Full Moon – Beaver Moon
Stillness is the key word for this Celtic Dark Full Moon. Its restful, rich solitude gives you the chance to hear that inner voice. When the lunar face is hidden, the intuitive psychic-self takes over. Make space for a clearing of the mind and spirit, so that you can be ready to receive. Many find the Dark Moon to be the most powerful time for soul-searching. The inner-self starts to grow in power, and make its presence known.
Trading Moon – Stocks & Bonds – November 12, 2019 – Full Moon – Beaver Moon
Basically, stock prices tend to be higher around the time of the New Moon each month and reach a temporary low point around the time of the Full Moon. Buy and sell signals based on the phases of the moon are nothing new, as Larry Williams’s advice of some 20 years ago was, “Buy the full moon and sell the new moon.” He found that the prices of silver, wheat, corn and soybean oil rallied around the time of a Full Moon and dropped at the New Moon. Our mood is clearly a complex animal, with many artificial and natural factors coming together to influence our emotional state. Some natural factors, such as this Full Moon, are affecting the entire world population at the same time, and appear to be partially responsible for the day to day moves in financial markets.
Reed Moon and Mourning Moon
The Celts call the November Full Moon the Reed Moon, comparing the mournful music made by wind instruments to the ghoulish sounds of spirits being drawn into the underworld. And not without good reason – this Full Moon is also known as the Mourning Moon, and marks a dangerous time of the year where people could easily slip into the underworld with a single misstep. To avoid this, have trust in yourself and your ability to navigate any of the challenges ahead. This Full Moon of November is notorious for staying in the sky longer than other Full Moons. It rises quickly at sunset, faster than any other Full Moon to rise at that time, and lingers until morning where it’s energy will continue to loom.
