Full Beaver Moon Eclipse in Taurus

The November Full Moon is the twelfth Moon of Creation. It goes by many names – Frosty Moon, Oak Moon, Dark Moon, and Mourning Moon, among others. The Ojibwe call her Little Spirit Moon and consider this a time of healing. However, like any self-respecting Canadian, my favourite reference is the Beaver Moon. The name came about as a result of the fur trapping days, when the first Full Moon in November was a sign the beavers were about to go into hibernation, and Winter was on her way.

The Full Moon opposes her brother the Sun in Scorpio. Full Moons are about self-reflection and releasing that which no longer serves you. You can augment this energy during your Full Moon Ritual, by knowing which house Taurus is in your natal chart. This information allows you to really zero in on what to specifically focus on between now and the Full Moon in Gemini. Add to that the eclipse energy and you’ve got an amazing opportunity for pure break-through moments.

This Moon brings us the last lunar eclipse of 2021. Earth’s shadow will cover a large portion of the Full Moon, so it's well worth staying up for, or waking up early for. Note this eclipse kicks off the Taurus (earth) and Scorpio (water) axis for the next two years. For the last year and a half, we’ve had the Gemini/Sagittarius axis, which ends with a total solar eclipse on December 4th.

For 18 months we’ve seen the impact of the Gemini (air) and Sagittarius (fire) axis. We’ve effectively shifted the way we communicate and interact with each other (Gemini), and taken a deeper dive into the diversity of our cultures and populations (Sagittarius). The next phase will be about finding our passion, our purpose as individuals and a community, and then re-designing and building new foundations based on the lessons learned from air and fire.
