How The November 2023 Full Beaver Moon Will Affect Every Zodiac Sign
You’ll question *everything*.
Have you noticed a major surge in your spontaneous decision-making? With the sun shifting into mutable fire sign Sagittarius on Nov. 22, repetitive routines and boring tasks have taken a backseat in order to make room for spur-of-the-moment adventures. This isn’t to say you’ll be blowing off all of your responsibilities, but experiences that encourage personal growth and enlightenment will seem far more appealing. In fact, as the Gemini full moon (aka the November 2023 Beaver Moon) approaches, you’ll be feeling bold enough to ask all of the intrusive questions you’ve been suppressing.
The upcoming full moon is not only piquing every zodiac sign’s curiosity, but it’s revealing some pretty profound discoveries, too. What have you’ve been itching to know more about? This lunation will make it easier for you to find the answers you’re looking for, if you’re willing to do a little probing. While realizing that you don’t know as much about a topic can sometimes be a humbling experience, this energy isn’t about judging yourself. Instead, it’s about embracing that you’re still learning. In time, you’ll feel confident in the knowledge you’ve gained.
The November “Beaver Moon” Has An Interesting Backstory
While many other full moon nicknames are linked to colors (ex. blue moon, black moon, pink moon, etc.), the Beaver Moon is significant for an entirely different reason. November’s full moon name (unless it’s a Hunter’s Moon) references animals preparing for winter.
“[The name] represents what was going on at the time,” astrologer Dalanah, of the Moon Matters podcast, previously told Elite Daily. “It’s not just about the moon; the moon sadly didn't look like a beaver.” Instead, the Beaver Moon is in reference to the period when beavers would start to hide away for the winter in their shelters.
This month’s full moon is also commonly called a Digging Moon, a reference to all of the animals digging their dens.
Here’s what every zodiac sign can expect from the full Beaver Moon, taking place on Nov. 27 at 4:16 a.m. EST:

Take notes – many of these discussions have the potential to lead to something bigger in the long-run.
Virgo Zodiac Signs (Aug. 21 - Sept. 22)
As the inquisitive Gemini full moon culminates, shedding light on your current professional status and career endeavors. You pride yourself in being the one to notify and inform people publicly, but on this day, important information regarding your vocation may be revealed.

All of your answers will be exactly where you least expect them.
Scorpio Zodiac Signs (Oct. 21 - Nov. 22)
The Gemini full moon is illuminating your shared responsibilities and financial burdens, prompting you to get curious about what you’re obligated to take care of (or not take care of). If you’ve been feeling like you’ve been taking ownership of anything that’s not your business, consider how you can create better boundaries.

If you’ve been unsure of where you stand with this person, this full moon promises to offer some clarity.
Capricorn Zodiac Signs (Dec. 19 - Jan. 20)
As the Gemini full moon illuminates your current habits, regimens, and rituals on Nov. 27, you’ll be eager to increase your productivity now, but rather than taking action, you’ll likely be rethinking how you make the most of your time and energy. You may realize something important about your current routine, prompting you to make a pivotal change. Either way, the adjustments you make should help you gain a better understanding of how to regulate your daily life.
Aquarius Zodiac Signs (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19)
The Gemini full moon sheds light on your creative passions and the pleasures of life, encouraging you to tend to the things that keep you mentally stimulated. Do something that activates your inner child, Aquarius. This lunation isn’t about taking yourself seriously, it’s about engaging in what brings you joy. Allow yourself to get curious about the things that make you happy. Why do they bring you joy, and how can you incorporate more of this energy into your life?
Pisces Zodiac Signs (Feb. 20 - March 20)
Your home and family matters will be your main area of focus during the Gemini full moon, inviting you to engage in discussions around your domestic world. You may be making some pivotal decisions in your home, or getting curious about how you can continue to prioritize the desire for mental stimulus in this part of your life.
