Full ’Beaver’ Moon in Krttika Nakshatra – November 25th, 2015
The full moon that appears in November is called the Beaver Moon. Some say this name comes from Native Americans setting beaver traps during this month before the swamps froze to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Other say that the Beaver Moon comes from the heavy activity of beavers building their winter dams.
About Krttika and Moon in Krttika – traditional interpretation by V. Robson: ’The General of the Celestial Armies. Symbol: a Flame or Razor. Regent: Agni, god of fire. Ruled by the Sun. A soft and sharp mansion or asterism belonging to the Brahmin caste and producing mixed effects. Those born on the lunar day will delight in white flowers, perform sacrifice, and will be magicians, metaphysicians, diggers, barbers, potters, priests or astronomers. With the Moon here at birth the native will be a glutton, adulterous, handsome and famous. Rules forests and the head.’
