moonstruck


In addition to yesterday's astrological bent on today's full moon, I have come across another traditional tidbit of information concerning November's celestial satellite. This month's moon is called The Beaver Moon. According to the Farmer's Almanac this name was attributed to the early northeastern Native Americans since this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, which ensured a supply of winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon. Enjoy the extra light in the sky tonight and take care while out and about. I have already sensed quite a fervour in the air while wandering through the city earlier today.
