Astrologer Rose Smith gives us the low down on what we can expect from this month’s Full Beaver Moon.
November’s full ‘Beaver Moon’ is almost here… AND it’s coupled with a partial lunar eclipse – so spiritually be prepared for a major shift or transformation, and a warning – watch your spending!
The full moon is in Taurus, which means the focus will be on money and possessions, but the eclipse encompasses values and self-reflection so people should be wary of selfishness and over-spending.
The celestial combination is a call for people to think of others and show compassion rather than focus on material objects.
Considering everyone’s life changes during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s time to clear the way for a major shift away from selfishness and towards thinking about other people and the planet – look at the big picture.
The moon is in Taurus which is ruled by Venus, and Venus loves beautiful things, luxury and spending money.
Do be careful not to overspend. If you must buy things look at those that will appreciate in value like artwork, furniture or vintage cars. Don’t buy bric-a-brac or trinkets.
There are likely to be real physical effects for everyone but particularly for Taureans, Leos, Scorpios and Aquarians as they are fixed signs – and especially around money. However, it’s not a time for materialism, but kindness.
The energy during a lunar eclipse is erratic and volatile – which needs a focus on inner work, especially with hidden secrets being revealed soon after the lunar eclipse when the solar eclipse occurs on December 4th.
Eclipses force us to confront our own shadow nature or the dark side of our personal subconscious, so also watch your dreams.
While the energy now is more erratic, it’s not dangerous. But it is important to be wary of behaviours that may be out of the norm or more volatile than usual.
Lunar eclipses are also a sign from the universe that a big or life-changing event will soon visit us on earth, and it can be unpredictable and unexpected.
Change won’t always occur on the exact date of the eclipse, sometimes it is weeks or months before or after it that something truly transformative happens.
Challenges to your physical body, laws, structures and organisations are likely and people might seem less reliable than usual.
As hard as it might seem, it’s best to go with the flow rather than try to maintain the status quo.
It could be uncomfortable initially but as time goes by, the changes will start to ‘bed in’ and feelings of security will emerge again. Be patient and it will all sort itself out.
And why is this full moon known as the ‘Beaver Moon’? Ms Smith said it has its origins in North America where beavers started preparing for the long winter, building shelter near the banks of rivers and streams. Hunters would set up beaver traps to make furs for the cold weather.
Here, it’s also a time for us to start building sturdy structures for our future… this moon is all about protection.
The moon likes privacy – it’s important to have plenty of alone time, space being in your own home, and being comfortable, safe and secure.
The moon is also associated with the ‘feminine’ and coupled with a lunar eclipse, issues surrounding our mothers could arise.
Your mother might have ideas about what she thinks is important in your life, different values to you, for example.
So, when can you see the partial lunar eclipse? The eclipse happens when part of the moon enters earth’s shadow which appears very dark on the side of the moon facing earth. What people see depends on how the sun, the earth and moon align, although it should be spotted at its peak around 8.02pm AEST in the night sky as a tiny streak as earth’s shadow hovers over the moon.
What does the Beaver Moon Lunar Eclipse have in store for your star sign?
Aries (March 21 to April 19):
The Lunar Eclipse in Taurus can have far-reaching effects on your money, possessions and value systems. It’s not the time to take risks now and it’s even more important that you be financially responsible. Take steps to secure your valuables and your money. Also, the things you value might change, and your priorities move away from material things to things like honesty and integrity.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20):
This Lunar Eclipse is all about you dear Taurus! It will give your core belief systems and identity quite a shakeup. Situations in your life that are meh or blah, won’t survive the tsunami of a Beaver Moon Lunar Eclipse. Beavers build dams and redirect water flow. You might find shaky structures in your life toppling so new more suitable structures can be built. A flood of new energy can enter your life now and you may change your clothes, hair or makeup to suit your newfound beliefs.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20):
It could be an emotional time for you as your Beaver Moon is in the house of the unconscious. Weirdness can reign supreme and perhaps you don’t know why you feel emotional or overwhelmed. Watch your dreams and little Freudian slips that come out of your mouth for clues. Soon all will be revealed but, in the meantime, have plenty of time alone and retire to a quiet place for some R&R.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22):
There could be a shakeup or turbulence with groups, friends or clubs. Something might be going on in your community that upsets the apple cart. It’s possible you may not find out straight away but come early December, you’ll probably work it out. You can change direction of your hopes and dreams now and reworking these will stand you in good stead. All will be fine; I see a bright future.
Leo (July 23 to August 22):
You normally work well with the public; however, your instincts tell you it’s time to get the balance between your public work and your personal life. It’s a constant juggling act!

Now there’s a shakeup in your career and it’s a good time to ensure that you’re doing something that makes your heart sing.

You’re capable of much more and need new experiences with people from vastly different backgrounds.
Libra (September 23 to October 22):
Your intimacy zone and shared resources are affected by this Lunar Eclipse. Although you greatly desire intimacy and closeness with another, you can also put up a brick wall to keep that person out. Maybe you’re afraid of being hurt again? Trust has to be earned according to you, but this Beaver Moon will uncover a few chinks in your emotional armour…it’s for the best! Resources you share with others such as loans or taxes, may also bring a few issues to a head.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21):
Your feelings are intense, and you could find yourself depending on other people for support.

Savvy Sag there’s a shakeup in your daily routine including your work or health. This Beaver Moon Eclipse wants you to think about working from home or getting more privacy in your day-to-day life. Your daily life needs tweaking so you’re not at cross purposes with want your heart desires. Soon there will be opportunities to make a physical change so you can be more in alignment with yourself.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19):
Your inner child might be upset about something so it’s time to express your emotions in a healthy way rather than acting out or building a mountain from a molehill. Give your inner child a chance to play – go out, socialise and enjoy yourself. It’s also a fine time for romance or creativity, so give these parts of yourself a chance to be expressed. Any turbulence is pushing you onto the right path.
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18):
This eclipse brings back the past concerning home or family. You may remember things from childhood or hear news of someone you knew a long time ago. Some belief systems or habits you learned when young are no longer valid, so it’s time to divest yourself of these. There are changes around your home and family, so let the past go. Your mother could be on your mind now.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20):
Your communications might be confused or misunderstood now. Try to stay grounded in practical REALity and tone down any turbulent emotions you might be feeling. It’s not a good time now for promotion, marketing or study as emotions could get in the way or you get ‘the wrong end of the stick’. There could be contact with distant family or something in your local area is a bit of a nuisance. It’s ok, all will be fine in the end.
