Moon Day 2

A day for laying foundations. Good for beginnings, especially for long term issues such as conceiving a child or laying the first bricks of your future house. It favours moves, trips, long journeys and buying property, but it is a day when financial machinations or theft will bring trouble.

Full Beaver Moon (November)

For both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. This full Moon was also called the Frost Moon.

This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full 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.
