The November Full Moon is known as the Beaver Moon since beavers typically build their winter homes during this time of the year. Depending on the winter solstice, the November Full Moon is also known as the Frost Moon or Mourning Moon.
The ancients typically named the Full Moons based on what they observed, or what they would do in the respected period of time. Since beavers are nocturnal creatures during the November Full Moon, they would use the Moon’s light to build their homes.
So let us dwell into November’s Full Moon and see what it represents, and how it came to be named. Read on, and enjoy!
