The phases of the moon each have a special significance; the new moon marks the beginning of the lunar cycle, while the full moon serves as a cosmic culmination of sorts. The spiritual meaning of the 2019 Beaver Moon, in particular, will revolve around the essence of the sensual sign of Taurus, which means this Venus-ruled lunation will illuminate the velvet night while shedding light on the abundance that already exists all around you, whether it be material or non-material.
November is always an interesting month, because it marks the peak of Scorpio season. Although, it's also important to consider the astrological transits taking place at the moment. Messenger planet Mercury will be in the midst of its retrograde journey through the underworld in Scorpio, which will play a significant role in the essence of the Beaver Moon. (According to TimeAndDate.com, November's full moon is often called Beaver Moon, because it's when the beavers prepare for the cold winter season.)
Venus, planet of love and Taurus' irresistible planetary ruler, will also be in the spontaneous sign of Sagittarius during this time. Needless to say, these are all pretty significant factors.
Radiating with sparkling abundance, the Beaver Moon will shed light on your Venusian desires, despite how reluctant you are to confronting them, so you can bask in the sensual pleasures of your blessed five senses. Remember, when la luna reaches her peak of fullness, she sits directly opposite the bold sun, which symbolizes both the divine feminine and sacred masculine. Full moons are a call for balance; hence, the sun and moon directly oppose each other. Those two entities coming face-to-face is a way to create harmony between both your emotional and physical body.
Keep in mind, the sun is a representation of your ego and identity; it's your extroverted side and the way you express yourself in the physical dimension. The moon is a symbol of your shadow self, innermost feelings, and emotional foundation. See the difference? It's equivalent to the essence of yin and yang.
Nevertheless, the Beaver Moon will illuminate your inner world on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at exactly 8:34 a.m. ET, at 19 degrees Taurus. What is Taurus? The fixed earth sign is sensual AF with a dash of materialism, and serves as a reminder to bask in the practical pleasures that exist all around you.
