• Full Beaver Moon – November

This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm

winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the

fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to

as the Frosty Moon.

• The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon – December

During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and

darkest.It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is

a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because

the Moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full Moon has a high

trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.
