Beaver Moon is the common US full moon name for November. As we’ve seen in the prior months, each symbolic name references a point within the epitome of the month. Beavers are coming into their fullness in November. So much so that the Natives knew to set traps early in the month because the beaver would be in her glory.

Other names for the full moon this month:

Dakota Sioux: Moon When Horns Are Broken Off

Celtic: Dark Moon, Pagan: Tree Moon, New Guinea: Tiger Shark Moon

Full Moon in Taurus

Taurus is very practical, and it’s elemental sign is Earth and is all about adapting to physical life. We’re talking slowing down and focusing on the things which make life a joy and pleasure. Think slow food, senseless beauty, time spent in nature. It’s all about being here now, not to bliss out, but to take in the present moment. Whether you take a walk, play an instrument, learn a new skill, dance, whatever, now is the time you are called to express and experience your physical life.

Explore your senses: sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Cook a meal and share it. Explore the textures of your life, view everything as if through a documentary lens, or as a poet who wants to capture every detail. Be lush in your exploration. If you have a partner to do this exploring with in a more sensual fashion, so much the better! Taurus is ruled by Venus, who is all about love and beauty.

It’s also a good time to take stock of what has value, not just your bank account, but what people, places or things you value the most. Are you spending the time nurturing what matters most?

One way to honor the full moon is meditation. We found this on YouTube: 20 minute Full Moon Meditation.  Blessed Be!

Full Harvest Moon in Pisces

Full Harvest Moon in Pisces

Thursday, Sep 19, 2013, 06:12:38 AM Central Daylight Time

Astrological Sign for the Full Moon: 26° 41′ Pisces

September Harvest Moon in PiscesThe Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumn equinox. Since the Equinox is only two days after this full moon, we have a big, beautiful Full Harvest Moon in Pisces. But you’ll have to get up early in the morning to see it, or at least to almost see it, the moon will be full just at about 06:12:38 AM and the moon sets at  6:11 AM on Sept 19th. Different cultures have different names for the full moons, and September’s full moon has several variants.

September Alternate Moon Names

China: Chrysanthemum Moon
Cherokee: Nut Moon
Dakotah Sioux: Moon When The Calves Grow Hair
Celtic: Singing Moon
English Medieval: Barley Moon
Heathen: Haligmonath

Haligmonath translates to modern English as “Holy Month.” Bede (an English Monk and historian)  described this month as the month of offerings, when offering of gifts to the gods/goddesses would have taken place. Nerthus/Erce is the name for the Earth Mother Goddess. She would be one of the deities honored at this harvest time for for providing food of the earth and sustaining life.

September Full Moon Astrology

With the Full Moon in Pisces, and the Sun in Virgo, we need to take care not to let the tides of this moon pull us under emotionally. On this full moon you might find yourself more sensitive to others, specifically, your empathy levels might be so high that you can’t separate out your own emotional state from those around you. We are very fortunate that the moon hits its peak early in the morning, so the Virgo Sun can shine and help you to sort through and organize these waves of emotions. The Virgo critical sense and skill at analyzing will come in handy here, if you are aware enough to step back.  In this time of sensitivity, you can really develop some skill and judgement for the long term in your relationships. This can be seen as both positive or negative. Some of the positions of the other planets will enhance this tendency.

Venus in Scorpio, conjunct Saturn in Scorpio

With the planet of love in Scorpio, you may find your relationships turn deep, serious, and intense enough for a teen vampire novel. Or, your relationship could become obsessive, jealous, and controlling, like a teen vampire novel.  It’s your choice to decide how the story plays out. Awareness matters, and you have some help with that because of the sun in Virgo.

You can work with the Virgo/Sun energy on this day to take a step back, think about your reactions, sort it all out and work on being objective. Then figure out if you’re going to dive in deep and enjoy the intensity, or turn to another passion.

Saturn Sextile Pluto happens every 35 years

With Venus conjunct Saturn and joining in the mix during the full moon, any serious decisions or actions around relationships has some staying power. With all this drama in relationships, both good and bad, it is the ideal time to assess. It’s perfect for proposals (or for breakups). Or for vows to last a lifetime. Just make sure your choices are positive and uplifting. It’s so easy be drawn into helplessness with a Pisces moon. If you find are in an unhealthy relationship, now is the time to get out or to shine a little Virgo sun on it and make some changes.

This aspect isn’t just for love relationships, but other relationships, too, fall under the influence of the generational energy.  Bonds can form which will last for at least a generation. If you step onto the road of your passion now, you can expect that this time, it will last.

So tune into your senses and get into that deep state of knowing to see if a major turning point in your life is rising. Work on developing a deep awareness of the hidden forces in life, in relationships and in nature.  Do avoid indulging in negativity. Take a step into the Sun and let Virgo help you find your best, greatest path. In this as in all things, you have options. But it can be a very powerful time in your life if you are in transition.
