What Is The Beaver Moon And What Does It Mean For You?

The end of 2023 is approaching and the year’s second last full moon is in sight. Dubbed the ‘Beaver Moon’ by those in the northern hemisphere, the full moon is the last one of spring before we transition into summer.

While there will be a chance for stargazers to see the full moon in all its glory tonight, if you’re into astrology, you may want to observe the Beaver Moon for other reasons.

The November full moon is happening in the sign of Gemini this year, and astrologer Emma Vidgen explains that while your social life may benefit, your plans could suffer.

Let’s dive into the significance of the Beaver Moon and the latest full moon in Gemini.

What Is The Beaver Moon? (And Why Is It Called That?)

If you’re wondering why it’s called the ‘Beaver Moon’ — well, that’s an excellent question. Like the Full Buck Moon or the Sturgeon Moon before it, the Beaver Moon was dubbed as such by native Americans who observed the seasonal change in beavers.

During this time of year, beavers reportedly become more active, and the light of the full moon allows them to build and repair their dams and homes at night before they head into winter hibernation.

When Is The Beaver Moon In Australia?

The Beaver full moon occurs every year in November and is the last full moon of spring (if you’re in Australia).

In 2023, the Beaver Moon is happening in Australia on November 28.

In Australia, the beaver moon is the last full moon of spring.

What Is The Significance Of The Beaver Moon?

Full moons generally mark the end of a lunar cycle, and the impending beginning of something new.

The Beaver Moon is seasonally significant as the final moon of spring or autumn, depending on your hemisphere.

If you’re wondering what the astrological significance of the Beaver Moon is, there isn’t one (exactly). Beaver Moon is a term that is not related to astrology, but is simply a given name to the full moon that occurs around this time of year.

However, like all full moons, the 2023 November full moon does have a significance of its own…

Understanding The 2023 November Full Moon In Gemini

In astrology, full moons gain their meaning and exact their influence according to the sign they’re in.

This November full moon falls within the sign of Gemini, one of our most naturally extroverted, playful and fun signs.

Astrologer Emma Vidgen says the full moon in Gemini is a blessing for your social calendar.

“From an astrology perspective, the full moon in Gemini is a peak in the month’s lunar energy,” Vidgen explains of its potency. “It’s always a playful moment on the astro calendar that signals party season is well and truly underway.”

Oh, did someone say “Christmas Party”?

Emma adds that while you might be feeling energised or extra social, you could equally be feeling a little scattered by all the demands on your plate.

“If you know your chart, look to the Sagittarius/Gemini axis to see what themes might be activated,” she explains. “Mutable rising signs – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces rising will feel the energy [of this full moon] the strongest.”

The flipside of this energy is that your to-do list might suffer from all that socialising.

“If you’re trying to get through your to-do list, this isn’t going to be very supportive. With Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, making a square to Neptune, things could feel a little topsy turvy,” Emma explains.

“Getting a clear answer will be tricky, and making a decision could feel near impossible. Be careful to confirm you’ve got the right end of the stick before you rush off and start making plans — or assumptions.”

You heard her: No rushing to conclusions here, and try to think a little before you leap!
