Full Moon / Beaver Moon by Margaret Ullrich

On Saturday we set our clocks back.
Around here it was a big whoop.

I guess one's reaction to Daylight Savings Time depends on where one lives.
Here in Manitoba it just means that it’s dark when we have breakfast and just as dark when we have supper.
Not great for energy, either personal or consumption.
Well, someone thought it was a good idea.

Before I get any comments on my saying this is a Full Beaver Moon…
In some parts of North America, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. 
I think this name was for folks a bit south of us.
Shallow water here is hard as a rock.
And we’re having a mild Autumn (so far) this year.

Others say that Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. 
Again, they must be southern beavers.
Sometimes we’ve had white Halloweens.
I’d like to think beavers have more sense than candy craving kids have.

It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.
Ah, yes, well, that sounds about right.
We're definitely having frost nights and, as I said, we're having a mild Autumn.


About Thursday’s full moon in Taurus…
According to the folks at astrology.com:

The full Moon in Taurus makes everyone crave sensuality in all its forms; the three days leading up to this are some of the best moments of the month to indulge.

Well, that explains our candy craving since Halloween.


Should you follow your feelings or remain completely practical in your approach? 
You'll likely find your answer somewhere in between.
On Thursday you have only one mission: listen to your body talk. 
You will definitely experience some deep, fully awakened desires this week.

Taurus energy is intentionally slow.  But at this luscious full Moon, that very slowness can be a tantalizing invitation to enjoy every single moment of intimacy. 
Food, scent and gentle touch should all play a role now. Only the loveliest scented candles will do. You might want to draw a bath for your partner, or make a ridiculously delicious, slow-cooked meal redolent of spices and herbs.  Sensuality totally rules!

Hmmm…. about that Beaver Moon….  


Are you feeling pressured to spend money that you don't want to spend?  Pay attention to the insights you receive, and take a clear-eyed look at your financial life. 

Given that loyalty is a signature trait of Taurus, keep in mind that being loyal to yourself is just as important as supporting others

Ah, yes, feeling pressured to spend money...
on to shopping for Christmas!
