The Moon

Just when you thought 2020 was the worst year on record. Just when you thought all hope was lost - along comes a Full Beaver Lunar Eclipse to brighten (and then darken) the night sky!


WHEN TO SEE NOVEMBER’S FULL MOON
The Beaver Moon reaches peak illumination in the early morning hours of Monday, November 30, at 4:30 A.M. EST. Of course, it will be very close to full the night before, so plan to look for it starting on Sunday, November 29, just after sunset!

WHY IS IT CALLED THE BEAVER MOON?
November’s full Moon was traditionally called the Beaver Moon by a number of Native Americans and colonial Americans. Many Native American groups used the monthly Moons and nature’s corresponding signs as a calendar to track the seasons.

Why the “Beaver” Moon? This is the time of year when beavers begin to take shelter in their lodges, having laid up sufficient stores of food for the long winter ahead. During the time of the fur trade in North America, it was also the season to trap beavers for their thick, winter-ready pelts.

Other November Moon Names

The November full Moon has also been called the Frost Moon and the Freezing Moon. Judging by the chilly weather that becomes more and more common at this time of year, it’s not hard to understand how these names came about! Another name, the Digging (or Scratching) Moon, evokes an image of animals scratching at the fallen leaves, foraging for fallen nuts or remaining shoots of green foliage—with the implication that winter is on its way.

It's at peak fullness early tomorrow morning when the sun will be up, so tonight is the best night to see it. And tbh, the eclipse won't really be visible in Europe or the UK. (too soon?) But never the less, that doesn't take away from our responsibilities as moon gazers to make sure we do our duties on such a momentus night. What am I talking about? Well, some say a youtube is worth a thousand words:

Absolutely incredible moon last night. I read a bit of the astro chart thing you posted and I think it's a good moon for my signs which might explain current strong vibrational frequency in terms of having a few light bulb moments/breakthroughs on various matters

Actually, it's not been properly explained. Sir Miles had a big part in volume 1, but this is the first time I've seen him in volume 2 and its one if those where there's a tantalising bit of a story, then it cuts to something completely different. This happens a lot. I'll let you know if I find out what the milks for...

Yeah dive in, might be up your street. A lot of symbols and references that are most probably wasted on me

2020 has been a chaotic year, hasn’t it? So it makes sense for the year to close with an intense and emotional Full Moon in none other than the most sentimental sign of all...Cancer. The Full Moon on December 29 (traditionally called the "Cold Moon") will be a huge release for us all.

The Great Awakener Uranus and the healing centaur Chiron (a small celestial body that orbits the Sun between Saturn and Uranus) are motivating us to let go and move forward. Grab the tissues and allow yourselves to feel your feels. Get rid of the negativity for a bright 2021.

The Numbers of This Full Moon​

This Full Moon will occur on 12/29/2020, which totals 18, so the number for this date is 9. 9 is the number for compassion and wisdom, so this Full Moon encourages us to think about the needs of the greater community; very much, with this Full Moon, the needs of the many out way the needs of the few, or the one. Since the Moon is in Cancer, this compassion and wisdom must come through our family and our origins. We must understand we all part of one family worldwide.

The Cancer full moon, also called the cold moon, is the last full moon of the year, and the nurturing energy it packs is exactly what we need after a year marked by tumult and uncertainty. Occurring on December 29th at 10:28 p.m., ET, the moon rules the intuitive sign of Cancer and is feeling quite comfortable in its home sign. When a planet is in its domicile, we can receive its benefits in a positive way. Naturally during this time of year, our attention is pushed towards the home, loved ones, and our own internal world.

A full moon occurs when the moon and the sun are opposing each other in the sky, and in this particular lunation, the full moon in Cancer will sit across from the Capricorn sun. The moon and sun form positive connections with freedom-loving Uranus in Taurus, which has been retrograde since August 15th. There is also a challenging aspect between the full moon and the wounded warrior Chiron in Aries. This planetary shift signals that we will be able to go after what we value and initiate a new beginning following a period of life-altering experiences that have led to healing.

Cancer is the cardinal sign that ushers in the summer solstice and is also one of the leading energies of the zodiac. This full moon, in particular, provides for the opportunity to heal the challenges and old wounds that have resurfaced during the year. It’s giving us the passion and drive to move forward into 2021 with a higher perspective, and is initiating much-needed changes in order to be more in alignment with our spirit.
